Sat in the main room but should have sat in the bar area because the lighting was a little dim.

I had the fish tacos and some appitizers. The food was good but a little expensive for what you got. I love Karl Strauss beers so theres no going wrong there but I wish they would have some other beers other than their own if not just to show support of the local brewing community.

I cant help feeling a little disconnected when it comes to Karl Strauss. Maybe because they dont currently brew their beer in San Diego but I feel the other local breweries try to make you feel at home a little more.

Not a bad place but you might as well go somewhere better if you have the choice.

Stopped in here for dinner tonight. A nice corner location in the heart of downtown La Jolla, or what I can only assume is downtown at least. Atmosphere was hopping, tons of people at tables all over the place enjoying themselves. Quality was good across the board. Correct glasses and top notch food ingredients mixed with high quality fixes around the restaurant. Service was great, but also a bit overbearing. He never let my glass get empty before he was on top of us asking what I would like next. Selection was pretty good. All of their normal beers and two specialties on, a "sour" and their 25th Bourbon Barrel beer. I got a sampler of four and two were really good, the other two not so much. I went with the Piggy Bank, a triple meat mac n cheese, and it was really good. Prices were a little high on the food but my sampler was only $6. Overall a decent spot in La Jolla, glad we could finally check it out after talking about it for the last few nights.
