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.

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

Hit it during happy hour. The BA stout was out. :( Got 3 new beers - one not on the site! Staff was very accommodating. Made change so I could feed the meter (25 cents/hr). The happy hour menu was a good value, and the food was indescribably delicious. Service was way over the usual I see in brewpubs. Cannot recommend this place too strongly. Building has a metal roof and louvers instead of glass for windows. Great venue. 15 beers on tap.

Nice brewpub in Coronado. A touch upscale but it is Coronado so it kind of goes with the territory, I was there on a Monday at Lunchtime and it was not that busy. The service was good. The food was also good. Their beers are pretty much solid BJCP Standard beers. The mild I had today was very drinkable and went well with my grilled ahi sandwich. I would come here again.

Located in a very quaint, upper tier part of town with a nice view of the San Diego skyline across the bay. Although very spacious, the place was packed and we sat at the bar. Itís a very long, nice bar. Even though they were very busy, both bartenders were very attentive. Lots of ceiling fans and Visio plasma tvs with really nice pictures. All the tvs were near the bar and the Padres game was on all the sets. Parking was very limited.

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.

A pretty cool spot. I liked the craftsman details in the architecture. The food was decent, as was the beer. Plus, this place isnít far from a decent beach with good parking. Iíll be back again.

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.

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.
