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.

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.
