Burgers and fish tacos were good. Service was great. A member in our party forgot his credit card. It's comforting to know staff is honest and the card was kept safe until we returned to inquire about it.

Took the family of 10pp while visiting San Diego. We were there on a Monday night during football season and the energy level was high. Sat at hightop tables and though it was loud and not conducive for table conversation, it was a great sports...More

Great atmosphere, great location, great staff... The food was bland/under cooked and beer wasn't very good. I was really disappointed at the Pacific Beach Ale House. I read a lot of good reviews, but in the end, the place did not measure up for us....More

We got there around 2:30 and were seated right away. We both had bacon cheeseburgers and they were great. I tried the Slomo Saison and loved it. They have heaters on the patio to keep you warm. A bit noisy but no complaints on service...More

Go for the beers. Tasted several and were all as described. Food was average. Fish tacos were bland. My clam chowder too thick and too much bacon for my taste. Ok on the peperonni flat bread.

Stopped by on a Thursday night and had the all you can eat shrimp special. I loved the Thai chili, the creole style and the grilled garlic shrimp! My wife doesn’t like seafood so she enjoyed the pizza. Great beer selection. Was a little crowded...More

Visited for lunch. Menu features beer, burgers and seafood. Salad with grilled shrimp was generous and tasty. Husband's medium burger was overcooked and dry. Lower level bar and cave-like dining room. Excellent variety of tap and bottled beers. Best view is topside with limited ocean...More

Stopped at the rooftop bar when we arrived. Very friendly staff, good drinks. The wings (Thai Chili) were forgettable. Not crispy. Maybe microwaved? The food other tables ordered looked appetizing. May try it again....
