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

Beer was fresh and the variety was abundant. Good selection of different beers as well as some rarer finds. The service was okay, I did not have food and the vibe was okay too. I was there during lunch time.

A very nice establishment, situated on beautiful Coronado Island. Hard to find if you don't pay attention to where you're going sometimes, but the building is very nice. Food is decent quality, but it's known mostly for it's beer. Had to go to the bar to get my beer, the waiter forgot to bring mine to me. Otherwise good experience.

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.

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.

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.

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.
