Coronado brewing company is in an excellent setting, but in the end falls short of what one would consider a great place to drink a beer. expect many families and patrons who do not drink regularly; actually, think of the clientele at Applebee's.

atmosphere is similar in decor to an Olive Garden meeting a Chili's. a kind of quasi beach mexican feel with louvered windows out front and a general hue of deep red. tables and booths are throughout with a small bar area as one enters.

quality and service are decent. the waitstaff do not know much about beer and are pretty slow with service. the beers themselves are all served in tumblers, and none of the four styles that this BA tried were anything of note.

selection is good. ten or so styles with three seasonals and seven standard brews.

food is along the lines of an Applebee's or a deep bar menu; nothing special.

overall, this place feels like a chain, with a very non-local aura. very odd since, the location and nature of the establishment could be wonderful. if one is in the area, make a stop, but there are other better options in San Diego. (1,110 characters)

Standard brew pub. Prices are a bit on the high side, but it is Coronado Island, so it's to be expected. Beers were middle of the road at best. (145 characters)

After living in SD for 36 years, I finally stopped in for a bite to eat and a couple of beers.

What do you expect for a lunch time vibe. This place reminds me of being on an island bungalow. This place is a quality establishment that offers quality craft beer and food. Well, it is in Coronado. The beer selection was very good. I had an Idiot IPA and 19th Anniversary IIPA. Good stuff. The vegetarian burger was also good to go.

I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Coronado. (496 characters)

Note: this is for the Imperial Beach location, which is not an option on BA yet. Little L-shaped place right across the street from the beach and a block from the pier... a tiny IB block. Seating is self-select, ordering done at the front counter. If crowded (went on a summer Friday and it was fine - farmers market on the pier also going on), get seats first then order. Small - in a good way - set of burgers, sandwiches, salads, pastas, apps. Full compliment of CBC brews on tap.... and 12s and 22s and growlers and 6-ers and...

Had the ceasar. That seems boring, but it is a benchmark test - ther dressing must be properly salty and lemony for me. It was. A bit thick, which I like. Also had the ceviche, which was very fresh and properly tart. Paired with the For Days Session IPA, because driving. Kid had a burger. That thing was pretty big, but it runs juicy so I'd flip it and eat it Hodad style (burger on top, garnish on bottom) to avoid soggy bun. (962 characters)

Food was good. So was beer. Several options other than the standards you can pick up at the store. Still, left a little underwhelmed. Especially with all the other players in the San Diego craft beer scene. (206 characters)
