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.

Didnít realize this was a chain when I checked it out, just explained why a place called alcatraz would be in Orange County. Decor is pretty novel with San Fran model replicas. Larege restaurant, pizzeria style layout. Spinach and mushrom thin crust pizza was excellent although the menu is not very extensive. Beers were average overall.

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.

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.

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.

Very nicely decorated. Food was OK. Beer sampler tray was quite novel. But none of the beers thrileld me. We sat outside and watched the shoppers heading to the mall. That was very entertaining.

Visited this location while attending a conference and residing at the nearby Doubletree Hotel. I was looking for a place within walking distance to the hotel and found this. This brewpub has the character of a sports bar more-so than anything else. The few beers I sampled were very good. It appears that they have a head brewer who knows what he is doing. The staff was friendly and the service was great. As for food, I had a calzone, tasty and cheap. Overall: Nothing to go out of way for, but a decent choice if you are in the area.

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.

I guess Iím alone in really liking this place. I had read that some found their beers to be a bit watery but I have to disagree with what I drank. I tried the sampler and then had a couple more of the Blueberry Hefeweizen and the Weiss Guy Wheat. Granted, it wasnít the best beer in the world, but I really enjoyed them and wanted to go back. The food that I had there was also pretty damn tasty.

Been here numerous times. The beers are well made, but rather unspectacular. The food is pretty good. Fish tacos and the chili are pretty excellent. Service is usually pretty good too. Also a cool scale model of the Golden Gate Bridge.
