Coronado island is great for touristy stuff such as viewing the San Diego skyline, and this brewery is a 2 minute walk from a nice lookout across the water.

Nice brick structure with ample seating for the volume of customers. Most beers were rather average, as was the food. This is one of those places with the (supposedly) funny signs about free beer tomorrow, if you don't like the service then you can leave, etc.

Service was good though, and prices were very reasonable for San Diego.

Although beers are average overall, their red is above average and worth seeking in the bottle. Seasonals on tap are worth trying also.

Stopped in while on the island.

Nice building inside and out. The service was very good, but was a bit let down when they were out of the IPA, Porter, and DIPA. I settled on the Irish Stout which was okay. The wife had the orange beer which she enjoyed.

We stuck to soup and salad which was pretty good. Saw others with full meals which appeared to be nice portions and tasty.

The prices were a bit pricey, but nothing too overthetop.

I was a bit let down that the three styles I seek out were not on draft the day of my visit.

Would give them another shot if in the area though.

This is in a nice touristy area across the way from the San Diego marina. It hase the typical wood and brass decor. A very small bar...maybe sits 8. Then they slap a 3 drink max on you. I did only have 2 beers: 1 being a Stone black IPA(VERY tastey) and then an IPA. The beer selection was limited but looked good. No beer engines that I could see. Nursing a hangover I just went with the peperoni pizza which was good but nothing to write home about. The service was good, and friendly.

I would reccomend this place if you are in Coronado, but it is more of a family brewpub with a 3 drink limit. =)

Excellent atmosphere. Open-air brick seating are with indoor bar area and a huge fire pit. Food is pretty good, especially the grilled tuna salad sandwich. Staff is typical restaurant, nice, but nothing to get excited about. Most have no idea what the beer is about. Beers are mostly average, but every now and then Coronado will pull out a good one. Obviously can get rare ones here that aren't bottled. Problem is the bar limits you to 3 pints per visit. Are you kidding me? And since its Coronado, be prepared to spend more than you want.

Nice little local brewpub on Coronado Island. I would've liked a taster, or the ability to drink more than a few beers. Had the Red Devil and the Imperial Stout, both were good. They didn't have the Idiot IPA, which is the beer that I desired the most. They also had a three drink limit, which I found odd. Food was very good, although I cannot recall what I had. The service was pretty good, our waitress was a bit lacking on beer knowledge but the bartender was very helpful. Will visit again next time.

nice relaxing place. fire place when you walk in, looks just like your typical restaurant.

service was good, attendants were attentive and helpful.

selection of beer was okay, they had there own brews and then a few others to choose from.

food was great! had a nice steak, something that i was craving after been without for 6 weeks, being out at sea and all.

the price was what you would expect from coronado, a little bit pricier than other communities. course this is were all the richie riches live.

overall it was a pleasant experience, the beer is not that great, good but just nothing to remarkable.

This place is easy to find whether you take the ferry over or you drive.

Remember that our "value" score is based on the price vs. what we actually got for our money. I think what we got was pretty much sub par, maybe it was just a bad day.

This was our second visit, the service was horrible. This girl kept forgetting about us, our appetizer (quesadilla) took considerably longer than a quesadilla should take and then it wasn't anything special, not that I expected a quesadilla would be. The rest of our order was also slow in arriving at our table(grilled ahi salad and blackened ahi cesaer). Nice attempt, but both were lacking something.

At least the beers were good. We had some samples and ultimately ordered a few full pints. We also ordered a barrell aged Super Stoopid Stout. Pretty good, but because we let it set on the table to warm up and then we were sharing it and sipping it, the waitress asked if it wasn't our cup of tea! I think we said something like "no, this is a sipping beer...to be savored, we are just enjoying it" She smirked and wandered off again.

When we were ready to go we had to find someone else to get our check for us so that we could leave. she was no where to be seen. Finally she reappeared to take care of our check.

Not the first brewpub I've been to that has had questionable service and waitstaff members that haven't a clue about the beer they serve. I probably won't waste my time to go back the next time we go to San Diego.

This place is actually located across the bay from downtown san diego, i was staying at the marriott marina, so i walked down to where the cruise ships left and took a ferry across the bay, about 3 bucks each way, easy walk though.

great spot right in the middle of the island neighborhood of Coronado, a great island in the heart of san diego.

the service was nice, tv's above the bar for sportcenter viewing.

The food was great, high end appetizers, had the tuna scewers very tasty.

They had a great selection of their own beers and even some guest taps from other local san diego brewers.

Solid wooden brewpub atmosphere typical of mid-90s brewpub ambience. A couple of TVs with ESPN on. Can't go wrong here.

Selection has about 8-10 house offerings plus a few guest taps. I like the Respect Beer aspect of 3 max-why not? House beers are solid if not spectacular-nothing wrong with that especially with friendly atmosphere...but the Islander IPA is quite nice. Service was quite friendly and helpful...crowd was about mid-30s in mid-PM which is fine for me. 5 per pint is right on par but dig the 3.25 afternoon pricing. If you're on Coronado stop in for a pint or 2 or 3 (but apparently not 4!). Good place. Edit: did family dinner here a couple of days later-solid and reasonable also.

Coronado Brewing is located not too far over the bridge from San Diego on Orange ave, near the water. There is street parking on both sides of the establishment.

The exterior is brick and hanging baskets. The inside is nice, with lots of wood and brick and greenery. They have an open fireplace too which adds a nice touch. The bar area is on the left side, with restaurant seating on the right.

The beer selection at CBC is fair. They range from Golden to ESB to a couple IPAs. The beers were all average to above average. Our server told us there were no samples available but a quick trip to the bar proved her wrong.

Service was decent on a weekday evening. Despite our server not bothering to even try to get us a couple beer samples, the bartender made up for it.

The food is pretty good, I had a fish sandwich that was very tasty.

Overall the beer alone is not reason enough to visit here, but the location and food tip the scales enough to make it a worthwhile stop.

I have really grown to enjoy the CBC offerings, especially over the last 2 years. Used to be ho-hum, now they are yum. I LOVE the $5 dollar growler fills on sunday...freaking awesome. That is like the price of a pint. They have their staple offerings, along with seasonal offerings. Yesterday they had a Scotch, and Lime Light WitBier. Both very interesting. The Wit had a very tropical/summer feel to it with hints of lime and coconut. The CBC location is more of a restaurant than brewery, but the brewery is visible behind the bar. They have "guest breweries" on tap also....BP Victory at Sea! Good place for growler fills, OK place to eat. Either full of tourists, or snooty Coronadians.

I've been to the Coronado a couple of times now and both were enjoyable. Able to find parking pretty quickly by the liquor store next door. One time featured quite a long wait and the other we were seated immediately. The place is quite nice and is a mix of a brewpub and nice restaurant. Glass windows separate the restaurant from the brewery, it would be cool if you could see them brewing as you eat (maybe mid day?). Good beer selection with some guest taps as well, but last time they were out of the Idiot IPA and the Red Devil, two of their most important brews IMO. I've enjoyed my food both times as well. Don't forget to stop by the liquor store next door when you leave, they have a great beer selection.

A few friends and I visited to Cornonado brewery early in the afternoon during a San Diego Chargers playoff game. The place was nearly full and most people were watching the game, of course, so the atmosphere was a lot of fun. It wasn't over the top crazy like the sports bar down the street appeared to be (with people spilling out onto the sidewalk). The food was pretty standard, good brewpub food; the prices were a bit high, though, with most sandwiches ringing up $10+. They were out of Red Devil (which was the beer I most wanted to try, unfortunately), and were also out of their own PA and IPA (maybe that's because they'd had high traffic due to the game, but it was still disappointing since I don't get down to Coronado very often). I was also a bit disappointed that they do not offer taster sets. I had their other red ale, their porter, and an IPA from Green Flash. Their red and their porter were both good beers. The red was very well-balanced with malty sweetness and hops. Some porters seem overly smokey to me, but theirs wasn't smokey at all--rather it was more sweet, slightly chocolatey. Coronado has a fun skateboard park nearby, and since I liked the brewery pretty well, I am likely to go back in the not too distant future.

An old favorite from a visit 10 years(or so) ago, it is just as I remember. It kind of reminds me of my Iron Hill in DE, a good restaurant that makes good beer. We (4 adults and 2 youngins) were seated outside to enjoy the nice day, but that may have hurt us a little because it took longer to get started and some delays in getting her attention at times. She was OK, but MIA at points. The beers were great! I had the 11th Anniv. and it was a typical SoCal IPA, but that is why I get them. The food was fine, but a bit pricey for lunch; I had the calzone and it was $11.

They have a great selection of beers on tap and they have a 3 beer limit to keep it on the family tip. I liked that policy. Too many times, I've observed folks camping out and overdoing it. I had my 2 and went away very pleased. They were somewhat busy for 2pm on a Friday afternoon, but the smell of the wood oven and the draw of good beer will do that for a business. Thanks to the CBC for a fun time.

I like the Micro's of California, and I can't get most of them back home so when I am in California I am very deliberate in what I consume. San Diego has a great down town, and you can find some of the great micro's there but it really is not a beer town in my opinion. So the next night the wife and I took the ferry over to Coronado and after walking the beach we headed over to this fine establishment.
As soon as I opened the menu I was impressed. They had low gravity ales for my wife, 3 different ipa's for me, and a few high gravity beers for my evil twin that comes out at the end of a sitting.

What really impressed me was the fact that they were not afraid to experiment with their ales. A BIG problem is that they only give 3 samples out at a time per table. This is not good because I only got to try about half their beers. What I did try made me happy. A lot of brew pubs will brew multiple IPA's but use the same malt and just change the hop additions (saves time and money). This did not appear to be the case at CBC, and our server confirmed it. Each one was distinctly its own beer, the strongest of the 3 being dubbed "idiot" IPA hinting towards the state it will put you in after consumtion. This place does have a 3 pint limit which categorizes it as a family place. I know a lot of BA's will not like that, but it is what it is and you have to respect it.

My wife had a Czech style pils rich and chewy, well done. I sampled the IPA's which were all solid; a red ale and a big beer called Red Devil that was twice the hops and malt of the red weighing in at 10% ABV. Very nice (borat voice).

I had the fish taco's (mahi mahi) and  they were outstanding. If you like fish taco's order these. My wife had the calzone, and it was solid.

Our server was a courteous, energetic young man who was passionate about food and beer. What else can you ask for out of a server?
Great place, will return when the beer gods permit.

Definetly no brewpub here, this is a nicer resturaunt that likes to brew beer. NIce shiny wooden tables, brick walls, fits being on an island near a beach, very nice. Some tv's around, had sports of 'em, random posters on the hallway leading to bathroom about their beers. Relaxing vibe in there.

One complaint I have about this place, NO FREAKIN" SAMPLER, which makes no sense to me, why brew beer and then offer people a no way to gauge what you have to offer, maybe not to proud, I dunno, but its ridiculous.

Selection including some wine, a guest beer or two , and ten or so house brew (gee wish i could of had a sampler).

No complaints about service, got seated, drink order taken, and drinks came out quick. Order was correct, Fine by any standards

All was good except for that no sampler deal. I got a mermaids red ale, and it was delicious. Wish i knew what the other brews tasted like.

Thanks to an early start and surprisingly easy traffic on the 5-Freeway South, it was decided to visit the Coronado Brewpub, before hitting up the 10th Celebration Open Day at Ballast Point Brewing later on.

I carpooled down from LongBeach with fellow BA Alecoholic (we eventually hooked up with EyeChartBrew at the Coronado) and we have both seen the scenery before, even so, the drive over the San Diego Coronado Bay Bridge is quiet something and affords some magnificent views. Coronado Brewing is situated on Orange Avenue and very easy to find. Parking is available on the street and also at the rear of the Brewery; it all seemed easy enough to navigate around and parking was not an issue, though it was pissing down with rain when we arrived.

Which reminds me, we arrived at 10:40am…..parked out on the street and headed into an open Pub, sat around for a minute or two ignored by the staff only to find out that the place was not open until 11am! Oh yeah, well check your Website chaps it clearly states that you open at 9am on Saturdays and Sundays!!! Actually the Coronado Website is not that good and doesn’t really provide any information on the brews available here, which is rather annoying, it all looks like very amateurish and has clearly not been updated for a long time.

The décor and interior is very Brewpub in nature, but it is clean and neatly laid out. Near the entrance there is an outside covered deck-like seating are, which looked like a cool place to hang out on a hot Summers night, but the driving rain forced us inside. To the right a large seated area opened up, but we headed up to the bar which greets you as you walk inside and dog-legs off to the back of the building. Booths are up against the left hand side wall, and the kitchen can also be seen off to the far left corner. The restrooms are situated past the open style kitchen (where you can watch hoards of guys in red t-shirts cooking your order), and bar area which also leads to the rear entrance and outback parking area. Plenty of stools at the bar, this is where I always like to sit on first visits. I noted a sign behind the bar which states a 3 Pint limit rule, whether this is actually ever imposed is hard to say.

Service was cool at first, efficient but with some brevity, yet she eventually warmed up and seemed to be fine in the end, maybe the rain hit everyone with a cold start on Saturday.

A single bank of Sixteen (16) Taps lines the back counter, just below the window that allows a view of the Brewery itself, a rather large affair stainless and copper looking affair I have to say. The beer range was heavy on house brews, including SlamDunkelWeizen, Pale Ale, Weiss, Octoberfest, Hoppy Daze IPA amongst others with even a 10th Anniversary Double IPA which actually ran out during our visit, in fact Alecoholic got the last sampler of that brew!

They serve samplers here, which I like when driving, having a chance to try the brews without getting a full Pint is always welcome. I opted for a 3-sampler of, the SlamDunkelWeizen which was very good, as was the Octoberfest, but the Hoppy Daze IPA seemed a little lacking. In addition to the house brews there were Guest beers from Green Flash and Stone, including Stones 10th Anniversary. The quality of the house brews was generally good, and the “specials” spice things up a bit here from the usual safe tried and tested brewpub style range. I did note that the Sixteen Taps are flanked by two Belgian style glass washers, the ones where you turn the glass upside down and depress it onto a platter which sprays water to the inside of the glass cleaning it.

Didn’t really have any serious food in here, as it was a first stop, I just opted to share a Pretzel appetizer with Alecoholic. The pretzel was the biz!! It turned up steaming hot with a nice spicy mustard sauce and was freshly cooked, a good starter appetizer. The rest of the Menu has lots of pub fare, burgers, fries, pastas, pizza and salads with a heavy accent on fresh fish.

The Coronado proved to be an enjoyable stop, a solid selection of house and guest brews, good food and a cracking location - but they do need to update their bloody website though.

Last Visit: Saturday 14th October, 2006.

My wife and I visted the area on Sept 9th/10th, 2006. On the Sat. we sat at the bar, in which the bartender (Tyler) was very helpful in letting us know the available brews and the special 10th Anniv. IPA - WOW, I mean WOW! It was awesome. The 4 brothers' Pale was nicely hopped. Island IPA was ordered twice by myself, because I just can't get enough of the IPA's. My wife had the Mermaid's Red and she liked it very much. We split the quesadillas (chicken) & a pizza which came out very nice and hot - always a good thing.


Anyway - overall, great place to visit, I'm glad we made it. the area to the right, as you first walk-in, has open air seating under a roof, would be nice for a gathering of 6 or more. Near the bar, the booths looked a little out of place, but that didn't seem to stop the regulars from having a great time. People at the bar were engaged in conversation, so you can tell locals are there to have a great time. Can't wait to get back.

My wife and I went into this place at around 10:30 pm. We stood by the door for about 6-7 minutes without anyone greeting us, although the bartenders looked out way several times. Finally a server walked by us, but we didn't get a "Hey how's it going?" or anything. Instead we got "I hope you guys arent' here for food, because the kitchen's closed". Not cool. Luckily we just wanted to try the beers, so we bellied up to the bar. The bartender did not greet us, and didn't place, but threw coasters down in front of us. Without a word he awaited our order. I asked if there was a sampler and he said "No" with obvious annoyance in his voice. So I ordered a pale ale and my wife ordered a stout. The beers were ok. They both tasted really sweet for the styles they were. Not very balanced. We were so upset about the service at this place that we only stayed for one beer. Very disappointing experience. Now I know this place deals with a lot of tourists, and it just so happens I was visiting from out of town, but they still should be a little nicer to people. You never know when someone will visit again.

This is a fine place for a few brews and/or a meal on the beautiful upscale island of Coronado, just a mile or two from downtown SD, comfortable, upscale joint, large outside eating areas, family and date friendly, they had about 8 of their own brews on tap and three guests, Stone IPA, Alesmith Lil Devil and one from Bear Republic, nice, the food was pretty good, I tried the Smoked salmon and wifey had the fish tacos, little daughter’s chicken tenders, all was better the average. One drawback was our server was beer clueless, c’mon it’s a “Brewing company” ya gotta know what the guest beers are……Anyway this is a worthy spot for brew and food on a very worthwhile island to check out…..one note, don’t bother going to the beaches further south, “Silver strip”?, just go to the wide beach on the south side of Coronado, much nicer

Decor and atmosphere-wise this is the finest "brewpub restaurant" I have ever stepped into. This place is within a few blocks of the ferry landing on Coronado or near the Marriott over there. Very easy to get to from downtown by using the water taxi 619-235-taxi-$6 pp- each way. I liked it so much, I went to this place twice. Coronado is absolutely beautiful and is one of my favorite parts of San Diego.

The first thing you notice about the west coast CBC is that it is a real nice family restaurant. They also brew some fine beers. They were nothing exceptional but certainly worthy of a growler or 2. You can visit their website if you'd like to see what they have on tap now..
http://www.sdro.com/brew/brew.htm

They also have happy hour when you can get their food and beers for a discounted price. Definitely not too expensive anyway--but this is one of those really good happy hours which i missed by about 5 mins. (I think its only M-F)

The kitchen in this place is really what makes it stand out. It is an example as to how beer and good food work so well together and these guys are extraordinary in the food dept. The open-air atmosphere adds to it. They have fresh tuna for xtra cheap when its on the happy hr menu. The wood grilled pizzas are amazing. As you are smelling them--you will realize you have to order one

Next time I'm in SD, this will be on my immediate agenda. San Diego has such a great beer scene, I cant recommend CBCs beers over PP or RR --but it is a fine establishment. Somewhat of a diamond in the rough. And theres this dive bar right next to the place which is pretty fun too.

The external seating is nice. This is Coronado and people want to be outside to watch everyone else, or be watched themselves.

The seating is adequate for a large pub/bar. It appears they’re going for the restaurant look but not quite there. The fare is excellent. I believed I had tried the calzone and the fish tacos. They primarily serve only their beer, which I totally respect and should get no complaints. I believe the waitress even said Coors something under her breath, oh well. Service was great, and of course made sure you had time to enjoy your beer first before bringing your food out.
One particular thing I did notice was the sign by the hostess station that read a 2 or 3 beer limit on their beers. I'm pretty sure that was to keep those "sloppy" beer sailors from getting into a mess. The price was, well it is Coronado. Even for San Diego in general it was a great value.

If you're ever visiting definitely stop in for lunch or just for a quick drink. Their beer is well worth it. What better place to put a brewery than beautiful Coronado.

Elbows Up,

My wife and I had been meaning to try out this place for quite some time before we did. I'm so happy we finally got the chance to visit. The food here is wonderful. A typical brew house menu, but with better ingredients and choices than the standard burgers and onion rings. Some fish on the menu, some Italian dishes. I was very pleased with dinner.

Now, on to the beer! The CBC has an excellent selection of house brews on tap. All the standards - Pales, Stouts, Hefes, etc. The atmosphere is great, mainly due to the location. The service is good and professional. It's definitely a good date spot, or even go to watch the game with friends. I highly recommend this joint.

Re Review (Kinda)

Went to Coronado Saturday 12/17/05 for lunch with my girlfriend. Nice SoCal Saturday afternoon. We got there at an off hour so it was pretty dead.

We orderd the giant Bavarian pretzels as an appetizser, aewsome!

I ordered the 9 beer sampler featuring 5oz samples of the Coronado Golden Ale, Four Brother's Pale Ale, Hoppa Daze IPA, Island Weizen, Mermaid Red, Point Loma Porter, Tent City Tan, and a Winter Seasonal Ale. All very nice, safe, but drinkable.

I ordered the four cheese and pepperoni calzone, was very good. My girlfriend ordered the fish tacos, she was a big fan.

The atmosphere is nice as always and the help was very nice. I like the CBC.


OG Review

Nice little place, I liked the how they had the place set up with the outdoor seating very clean place. Nice view of the city across the water.
I sat at the bar and went down the tap line up. I enjoyed the Brews being served here; standard brewpub choices all pretty good.
They offered an interesting menu full of seafood that my east coast ass had never heared of. I ordered up the garlic cheese fries and a couple fish tacos, pretty tastey.
The service was a little slow but I was in no rush that day.
The bartender was pretty good looking, but that was probably because she was pouring me beer!
I'd stop in again if in the area for lunch and a couple beers.

We kind of stumbled on this place after checking out the Del Coronado. And I'm glad we did. Even though it was a little chilly, we decided to sit in the covered patio area. The heaters and fire pit were going, so it was actually quite comfortable. The indoor seating looked quite nice, very clean, with a large bar in front of the brewing apparatus sitting opposite the open kitchen.

Eight house beers were on tap during our visit and these covered the standard brewpub styles, as well as a barleywine. No guest taps were apparent, but bottles of their red, blonde, and porter were available. Samples of all their offerings were available for $1.25 each and were a great way to get my family to try some different beer styles.

The food menu was surprisingly large, with plenty of pub-fare. Everything tasted great and the servings were on the large side. Great value. Our server had a decent knowledge about the beer and food they had available, and she made some helpful suggestions on beer choices for my father and sister (they tend to think my suggestions are going to be too far out for their tastes).

Overall, a great place to stop at and I'll look to go back the next time I'm in town.
