Ambiance was pretty upscale, but very nice. Wait staff was really not happy to be there it seemed and were not knowledgeable about the beer. Selection was great, got to try Parabola on tap! Value was so-so. Overall, could have been a great experience with a different wait staff.

Our last stop on our drive to SD. I was mainly stopping to check out the barrel works but we decided to stay for dinner so I got to check out both. Atmosphere in the taproom was good. It was packed with people but it still had a good vide. Quality across the board was quite good. Lots of great touches helped to make it feel welcoming but donít detract from the overall atmosphere. Service was solid, I never had to wait for a beer. Selection was solid. They had all of the staples on as expected. Food was pretty good. I got a burger and it was cooked how as I asked and tasted good. Prices on the beers were fine, food was definitely overpriced on nearly all of the dishes. Overall a really nice showpiece for a great brewery. Glad we could stop and check it out.

Pretty nice place. BBQ chicken pizza was very good (beware, crisply thin crust!). Tasters $1.50, half pine and imperial pint pours available. 12 beers in tap including several that are taproom only. Decent service.

A very nice restaurant with the ability to be high end or casual. Food is high end, but I found it flavorless and lacking. Beer is all their own, with a library of old beers you can drink onsite for a premium. In all it wasnít that great for me, I preferred their brewery store across the street.

Latest stop was the day after the XVII release party, been here many times, figured it was time. Have sat in the restaurant and bar, prefer the bar for food and drinks. Wookey Jack and Taproom IPA this time, along with excellent calimari and the Trio of fries. Service was very good too. Love the interior with the bottling line going round and round, and several tvís for viewing. The main room of the restaurant is a bit to spacious for me, making it on the noisy side...might as well sit in the bar.

Stopped in on a Thursday evening on the drive back from San Diego. Dining room is large and was a bit noisy, even with plenty of open tables. Must be ridiculously loud when packed. Seated immediately. Service was quick and our server was very friendly. Our food arrived surprisingly quickly, was pretty tasty and were good sized portions. Didnít realize the "Taproom" IPA and brown we had are the renamed Nectar Ales. Not bad regardless. Also had Velvet Merkin and Oaktoberfest. Glad we finally gave the place a shot.

I loved the ambiance here and the draft selection was good. I wish they had parabola on tap though.

I like the way the use the old malt bags to create dividing walls. We started out in barrelworks and by the time we finished there this place was packed but we only had to wait 15 min for a table. The service was fast and friendly and the food was good.

The place is a bit noisy, but looks cool. Mostly quick service as well. We got a lot of new beers, and a hearthy, delicious meal, and in general we had a blast here and in the barrel room. Did the barrel room first, which I highly recommend.
