Much larger than their Solana beach location, though the atmosphere lacks some of the "surfer-cool" that I like about the other one. But still, if you're here for the food, the beer (or, more to the point, a seat!) then this is a great place. The beer selection ranges over a number of their own ecclectic brews, some great local beers, and some good non-local stuff as well -- I've seen Dogfish head in here a couple times. The pizza is great, and their little "beer buddy" appetizers are mighty tasty as well. If you go at an off-time, I'd pick the Solana beach location over this, both for the vibe and the quality of beer available. But you won't be disappointed if this is the only one you can hit.

The vibe and energy in here is always good. There always seems to be a crowd, but especially crowded around meal times, especially on weekend. So busy in fact that the wait for ordering food and grabbing a cold beer can be a real pain. parking out back off street, and on street and adjacent parking lots. Loses points for crowds/waits/parking. Its a seat yourself concept which can be a real hassle with a large group when busy and the beer/food lines intersect. I have never been disappointed by the quality of the food or the overall beer selections. No tasters though or bottle sales, although they do have a bottle shop next door. Video games etc for those inclined. a mix of seating options from park bench style to high seat/table options. inside and more outdoor covered open air options. I have driven right by on several occasions just b/c the line to get in has stretched out the door and you cant tell if its the food/beer/or seating line it can be that chaotic. If you're really motivated, drop the family at the door to grab seating/food line whilst you grab parking. Its in a nice area overall, with tons of other local shopping and a few blocks up from the ocean. Never used the bathrooms so cant comment. Timing is everything at this place. Honestly, I've had a more comfortable and overall more pleasant experience at the nearby Bressi Ranch brewpub. Hope this helps. Cheers!

Awesome location, food is the same as all other PP locations (really good), but the beer selection here is sick thanks to a "beer store" next door. Get your food, walk next door and grab a special/rare beer and hang out in the back garden area. Perfect way to enjoy a San Diego evening.
