Very friendly and pleasant establishment near Petco Park and the Gaslamp district. Had exceptional service from Tyler. There are stairs and not wheelchair accessible as far as we could tell. Older people such as ourselves might find the music somewhat loud and intrusive but quieter...on the balcony. Very extensive beer and wine list. We enjoyed the fried goat cheese starter and the poached pear salad with salmon added ( they do salmon well ). The house burger was also fine.More

Came out with friends on a weekend evening. Short wait to be seated. Server was great and food and drinks came out fast. Awesome selection of draft beer. Food quality was quite good from a simple menu. The decorations give this place a great vibe....Only drawback was music upstairs was too loud at times to enjoy conversation. The server said there wasn’t anything they could do.More

Great Irish Food and strong beer! Very comfortable setting, clean with outstanding service. Our group made an attempt to sample everything on the menu. Especially memorable were the fish and chips, chicken and mashed potato bowl, Mac and cheese dishes!

This place was near our hotel and we checked out the menu before we went. Gabbie was our great Wait! Answered all of our questions about the menu and took our modified orders which then came out correctly made! The veggie stir fry was chock...full of veggies still crunchy. The pretzel bites were tasty. Youngest member got the bread pudding which also was delicious, During our meal Gabbie stopped to chat and make sure everything was okay and that we didn't need anything,More

We had a great time here as a family enjoying a meal during a Padres game. We could see into and hear the stadium while watching the game on TV. The beer and food selection is great and the wait staff is friendly.

Great beer, good food and pup friendly. What more could you want from a brewery 🤷‍♀️. The patio was spacious and the server was friendly.

This place was a total hidden gem. It was within walking distance of the Hard Rock where I was staying, so I decided to check it out. Had their pretzel bites which were great, and the beers were just as good. It's also a short...walk from petco park. Definitely a hidden gem of a brewery in San Diego!More

Consistently a solid experience. Great venue. Surprisingly good food, in fact excellent food. Service is great. Beer is solid, too, with a wider variety than most craft beer houses. Will continue to return and to bring friends.
