Visited on a Wednesday evening around 6PM. Plenty of seating initially, but then filled up quickly

Vibe: I ate outside in the courtyard. Sunny and cool San Diego outside for a beer and dinner - what's not to love? Just enough rough around the edges, but not skimping for comfort and quality is what I can say about the vibe. If I had more time maybe I would have strolled through the grounds and seen what else the place had to offer - but otherwise I'll say classy but laid back and a good place to relax with a beer.

Quality: No complaints here across the board - good food, good beer selection (on tap and bottles - all sorts of rare stuff in bottles if you had the money).

Service: I got seen quickly both for a table and once I got to the table. Not amazing service, but attentive just enough without being pushy.

Selection: Lots available for hopheads as you would expect from Stone, with some other choice styles as well on tap. The real selection which you have to ask for is the bottle menu. I wanted on draft, but I looked at the bottle menu while I was having my dinner and there were some unique choices I would not have minded buying and taking home (if I wasn't on travel).

Food: Very good - a bit on the high end price wise, but very good food for the portion size I got. Just right cooked salmon and really tasty sides as well. Good dessert also.

Definitely a place to come back to. I'll have to come in the afternoon and stroll the place a bit rather than just tell the server I'm just there for dinner.

This is my preferred Stone to visit. Although it can get crowded like the main location in Escondido, this one seems to be less crowded and is a little better spread out. Top notch service, tasty (albeit pricey) food and Ive actually had far better luck finding hidden gems on the beer menu here than their home base but maybe thats just my tastes. The y offer both indoor and outdoor seating options and being that its SD, there's a plethora of outdoor, night time events in the warmer months.

As far as taprooms go this is one of the best that I have been to anywhere. Their outdoor area is killer. Good selection of beers and helpful service. Kind of tough to find its kind of tucked away in an a commercial area, uber guy had to go around the block a few times. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

Great food, good beer and some great variety. If you're looking for hazy IPAs keep going, that's not their thing. Food is high quality and delicious. The bartenders are very helpful.

This is a huge place - multiple big rooms with tables for dining, the large bar room with rectangular bar, and then the outdoor garden seating. It was fairly quiet at lunch time. 40 beers on tap - mix of beers brewed at this location, at the main brewery, and then some guest taps as well. Also wine. Food is upscale casual food - including some vegetarian options. I had the chickenfried pork sandwhich which came with an arugula salad. good stuff.

We had the chance to visit in February of 2018 on a trip to San Diego. The experience was entirely worth it. It's a sprawling complex in the Liberty Station area with indoor/outdoor bar and seating. Pretty crowded when we got there but manageable. The beer selection is stellar (30-40 taps plus more bottled), and a mix of Stone, Stone's 'Liberty Station' exclusives, and a few local micros and like a kid in a candy store I didn't do more than a 5 ounce pour of any of the offerings. The food menu is small but the food's of great quality... tasty and interesting. The vibe is busy... and a lot to take in, and I'm sure there's a depth to the place that you can't get with a single visit. Service was decent... beer was great... food was tasty. A beer Mecca for a reason. Will go back again at the earliest opportunity.

Huge sprawling southwestern styled facility. Indoor outdoor bar and seating... pleasantly landscaped courtyard... A facility appropriate for a craft beer Mecca. 30 to 40 beers on tap, depending on where you've sat. Friendly efficient service. Unfortunately in the flight path... but great place to hang out.

Stone Brewing olrd Bistro and Grdens is simply huge
A great place to enjoy both delicious food and Stone beers
Probably not the best place to meet people but I've seen (including myself) several people on their own at the bar

We had a fantastic time at Liberty Station! Great selection of both exclusive Liberty Station beers and Stone brewing beer, and all enjoyed at a beautiful outdoor patio section. Food was great, service was attentive, and I'd definitely recommend stopping by whether you're a craft beer fanatic or not! Liberty Station also has an amazing selection of wines and soda both made on site if beer isn't your preference!

This place was tremendous. In town from the East Coast with family and my niece decided to go to Stone Liberty Station and it was wonderful. We went during the day on a Tuesday so it was not crowded at all, but the service was outstanding and the beer and food were both really, really good. Highly recommend this place for anyone.

This is a really cool spot in the old Naval base in San Diego. Not as great as the amazing Escondido location, but very nice in its own right. There's a huge outdoor patio and an even bigger area inside. The food is absolutely amazing (have the beef short rib!) and the beer is, well Stone beer: solid but not spectacular.

This place looks incredible! Wide selection of beers, all of which is top notch and super fresh. Great gift shop with growlers & bottles for sale. Food was exceptionally good. Very cool place!
