Visited December 31, 2013 while bar hopping on New Years Eve.
I wish I could find the listing that I saw at the BJs in La Jolla where it broke down the three types of restaurants in this chain. There are the "brewhouses" which used to brew but donít anymore, the restaurants that never brewed, and these little places. They are tiny (comparatively) and maybe seat about 40 people. They donít have a bar and donít even have guest taps. Seems kind of pointless honestly. BJís are basically sports bars with some house beers and some guest taps. This is missing two out of the three. If youíre in Laguna Beach you can get better beer elsewhere. The food is the same as the other locations (so decent), the view is nice, the service is alright, but you can find much more interesting places within walking distance.

Beer is the same that you can get at any BJs. Nothing special but not too expensive. The place is crowded as hell since it is right on main beach.

Does not appear to make any beers you can not get at other BJís locations and is quite small. Does overlook the park next to the beach but that is not a reason to visit Laguna Beach unless you are stopping there for non-beer reasons.

pretty decent place, a bit small. they call it deep dish pizza- ha! it really isnít deep dish unless itís from chicago anyways. but this was hardly deep dish. in any case, the 7 5oz samplers for $8.50 was pretty cool. none of the beers were spectacular, but they were mostly very good.
