A quite large room with a long bar and a Golden Gate replica, making it look a bit corny I think. The menu is just like on any other brewpub, didnít try any of the food, but at least it looks nice. Dropped in on a slow day after lunch, and the service was a bit slow but friendly and I got one of the samplers for free. The beers range from uninteresting to good, and itís certainly a place I can return to if in the area. But then of course, thereís other places as well nearby. The Bruery among others.

11 aug 2013, tap. Atmosphere is pretty good. It can get real busy at the bar but table service is good. Beer is mediocre but happy hour prices are $3 pints and this is all day Sunday.

Iíve been here numers times, usually in the middle of the day when itís not crowded. That is what brings the atmosphere score up a tad as I donít think I could stand being in the Block at Orange on a busy Friday or Saturday night.

The interior is decorated nicely and is kept clean. The bartenders are nice and somewhat accomodating. The food and beers are alright but over priced . They do a bit of experimenting in the beer styles as they have a strong ale, various fruit beers, quad, doppelbock, and eisbock (only for the beer dinner). The results arenít always spectacular though.

Worth trying once but I hate the mall.

Interesting place. The SF Themed decor is a little weird, but its not the whole place. The place itself is rather large, with good lighting and nice spacing between tables. I was there mid-afternoon on a rainy Monday and it was mostly empty. The service was good. I even got an additional taster beer because the Black IPA was not on tap when I ordered. The beers are mostly Brew pub standard. The food is better than average. Nice place. I good spot for the family.

Sat at the bar and had a sampler set. Beer was all good, but nothing spectacular. Everything they had on tap currently was on the lighter side with the exception of the Annihilator Doppelbock. Service was fairly good but my food did take a little while to come out. Food itself was fairly good, but again nothing spectacular. Overall a place worth visiting if you are in the area, but nothing worth going very far out of the way for.

Sort of a lame idea: a San Francisco themed brewpub in the heart of Orange County. Their beer is mediocre for the most part, with some beers being above average and others being downright awful. Food is typical bar food. Nothing to really write home about. Service is decent to poor.

The food was solid but unspectacular, and the beer was for the most part, pretty mediocre. Felt like everything was softened for the masses - any "brewpub" with a giftshop when you walk in seems to give you a feeling for what takes priority. Having said that, the happy hour pricing is hard to beat for SoCal. The atmosphere is a bit cheesy with the Golden Gate Bridge and whatnot, but there are plenty of TVs, and the service was friendly.

Typical BJís type chain feel. Not something I am really a fan of. As such the beers where mediocre, but fairly cheap for the sampler. The bartender forgot my food order, but offered me a beer. Food was decent, not spectacular. Not very interesting of a place.

We had a hard time locating this place in the mall, but once there found a big place. We seated outside, so didnít get that much of the Alcatraz/SF feel, which I find odd in Orange. A bit stressfull to be seated outside, since all the mall-goers were wandering by all the time - next time - Iím sitting inside. 7 beers on tap of decent to good quality and a bottled cider that I hadnít tried. The food was decent, and the prices cheap coming from Europe. A good stop driving south from LAX.

Alcatraz themed restaurant with the Golden Gate Bridge hanging from the ceiling. The food and beer were both pretty good. Iíd go back when Iím in the area.
