Whoever voted this top 2014 World Beer Cup Mid size brewpub needs to get out a bit more. Sure its a fun spot, in an idealic location, but the top to bottom beer quality isnít there. Inside is a bit dark, wish the bar was larger as it was packed despite a slow day. Only 3 tables outside was strange. The regular lineup was extremely disappointing. The Idiot was ok the rest should be skipped. They did have another 16 or so one off draft beers. I had 3 lovely ipas, but the rest where sub standard. Service was nice and helpful. Iíd come by if I lived here but this isnít a destination spot nor should it be on the top of any lists.

Visited on Sunday 20/04/14 around 5pm, located just over 5 minutes walk from the ferry stop to SD. The place was starting to fill out with Sunday evening diners but they were happy for me to take a table of 4 despite the fact I wasnt eating. Modern looking brewpub with brew kit visible, function kind of place, patio out front which was full and a decent vibe about the place. 23 taps dispensing 6 regulars and fairly impressive 17 seasonals/one offs. Tasting flight was $11 for 5, the service was prompt and most beers decent. Well worth a trip out to!

Stopped in twice, once for lunch and once for a beer. Cool place on an awesome island, reasonable prices ($9 for 5 pour flight), food was excellent and service was very good. About 20 beers available on tap.

Nice building and location. It was good to visit, but not the best beer around. The beer is okay, just not comparable to many other san diego breweries. Food was pretty good. Nice atmosphere.

I checked this place out while on vacation in San Diego earlier in the year. I was impressed with the inside of the restaurant, with the open kitchen and pizza oven in full view. The service was warm and the beers were pretty decent overall. I was a bit disappointed that two that I had asked for were unavailable despite being on the menu but I got over it quickly. They do flights and I had not tried many of there beers so I was able to try 5-6 new ones that day which was nice. I was there during the afternoon and decided to get some food and went with the calzone, and I was glad I did as it was some of the best food I have had at a brewpub. Iíll definitely be back for more

Visited October 2013.

Iíve been wanting to check out Coronado for a number of years now and finally got the chance. Thereís always some reason why I couldnít. They do a really cool vintage car race out here every year that I was hoping to couple with a trip to the brewery the last few years. Maybe next year... Anyway, the pub is only two blocks from the water and if youíre on the patio you can see San Diego a little bit. Inside is a bit disappointing compared to outside but itís still a nice place. The tables arenít too smashed together, the servers were nice, the food was good, and they have a lot of beers on tap, many of which I had never had before.

The burger was the Islander Burger and was pretty good. Iíll mention that it was cooked about medium when I ordered it medium rare, so thatís not bad. The burger had some pineapple and teriyaki on it. Iím a sucker for peppers on burgers (in this case the Baja Burger) but the server talked me into the Islander instead. The beer list is kind of ridiculous. Iíve been ticking Coronado beers for five years and they managed to have at least half a dozen new ones for me, some of which were pretty good.

Parking can be a pain, the prices are high, and the place can be crowded, but all in all I enjoyed this quite a bit and would gladly return. Maybe next year in October for the vintage car race.

Visited here for dinner while on vacation in early August í13. Very crowded for a Sunday night - friendly talkative clientele and staff - we sat at the bar. Well furnished, not too fancy, has a nautical feel to it. Has about 15 of their beers on taps - all of their regulars and a few special releases. Have some taps from other brewers as well. Food was excellent and the barkeeps were attentive but not overbearing. Would be a regular eating place if I lived in the San Diego area. Parking not too much of an issue - found street parking about a block away behind the restaurant. A must stop if on Coronado and in the San Diego area as well.

Hit or miss with this place. Some beers are just OK, others are amazing. Sometimes the place seems dark and socially dreary, and other times its lively and happy. Worth the stop if youíre on the island, or relaxing after a soccer/softball tournament.

My wife and I arrived here about 10 minutes after it opened on a Friday mid-morning after paying a visit to the historic Del Coronado Hotel. We parked just off of Orange Ave. and walked up Orange to get to the brewpub. What a cute, clean area. We stopped to say hi to a snow white, long haired Tom cat named Sam. He was just chilliní on the sidewalk. Coronado Brewingís storefront is very attractive--brick with a hanging wooden sign, brass lettering above, with an adjacent painted Coronado emblem. The inside is very nice with wood everywhere. Brew kettles and fermenters are visible behind the bar. The service was pleasant, accommodating, and friendly. In fact, Ron Chapman, the CEO and co-founder had observed me taking notes on all the beers I was trying. He came over to introduce himself and tell me a little about the history of the brewery and his excitement about the craft brew explosion in San Diego. Coronado was among a handful of craft brewers in the San Diego area before anyone even really knew what "craft beer" meant. Flights are available. I wonít review the beers here, Iíve done that for each individual one I tried. Suffice it to say that Coronado has positioned itself solidly in one of the most competitive, growing artisan beer markets in the world. I was very impressed. I canít wait to go back. This time for some lunch or dinner in addition to a few pints.
