I have heard Board and Brew was good so when I was looking for places to go for lunch during my son's baseball tournament in San Clemente this seemed to be the perfect spot...and we weren't disappointed! When we arrived about 11:30 for lunch, the line was out the door. It wasn't because the staff was slow, it was because... More

If you're ever in our area again, don't be a stranger! We'd love to welcome you back for another sandwich and another round of beers... More

My first time at their Laguna Niguel branch which is not listed in Tripadviser search. I ordered the "deluxe Turkey sandwich". There was nothing special about it. It was turkey slices, chedder slice cheese , tomato and sunflower seed on a big fat french bread not a baguette as the menu says. It comes with a sweet sauce. They also... More

We don't get too fancy or over the top with our ingredients, you're right, but we're definitely all about quality and freshness, and I hope that'll shine through for you more next time around. There's nothing nicer than a fresh sandwich, a round of brews, and an afternoon on the patio! Take care 'til next time, Mike D, Owner More

We ate here twice on our last visit (we come out once a month for work) and had a great sandwich/wrap both times. Order ahead online to save on time, especially if you're coming during the lunch rush. We'll definitely be back!

GREAT SANDWICHES and it seems to be a local favorite! You know when you pull up and the place is packed it's gonna be good. My husband and I took a day trip to Carlsbad and arrived at lunch time so I checked out Yelp reviews for the area. Board & Brew sounded like the food we wanted and the... More

So glad to hear how much you both loved your sandwiches! It's always tough picking a favorite around here, but the Turkado and the spicy chicken are both high on the list for me. Can't wait to welcome you back for more sandwiches and a round of brews again next time you're in the area. Take care till then! Cheers,... More

They have happy hour and many beers on tap. Their sandwiches are a cut above the standards with indoor and outdoor seating.
