t0rin0  (1456) Do Not Resuscitate, California | November 1, 2013
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.

We sat at the bar as everyone at tables was eating, and it was a busy evening. Some beers better than others. The Baby Idiot IPA at just 3.9% abv was very tasty. An interesting boat ride from San Diego (which goes from the quayside by the railroad station)

When I came first some years ago they had a rule in place to serve only 3 pints by person. Seems they have lifted this now. Great food, like the Weisswurst Burger, beers are above average. If you combine a round of Golf at Coronado municipal GC with some pints at this brewery thereafter you will have a great day.

Iíve been to CBC several times. The ambiance is great, with firepits and cool craftsman style to the place. The beers are limited to CBC offerings, which are ok but not great. The food is above average.

We visit the brewpub just during lunch time. So it was pleasant busy. A nice decorated bar. On one side the brewery behing a glass wall and at the other side the kitchen. In the middle there was the bas. With a friendly staff. There were several beers of there own available.

This is a popular place. On July 3rd we had to wait at least 45 min. for a table while the other joints on the strip were half full. We were lucky to get a parking spot just one block away. While waiting, I bought one of their T-shirts. Also at the Deli next door I got a nice Scottish Imp. Stout to take home. Our waiter was friendly and brought the beer sampler right away. Later he brought the 3 remaining Coronado beers that they had on tap. The Philly cheese steak was good.

Terminus  (334) Las Cruces, New Mexico | July 19, 2011
decent place, but not great. However, they do make a few really tasty beers. The food is so-so (patty melt) and the service is just above average. usually have about 12 beers on at a time with a couple guest taps. The easiest way to get there is to take the water taxi from the SD convention center and just walk a couple blocks. It was fast and inexpensive because parking can be a bitch on the island.
