Kind of a small location on the outskirts of South Coast plaza. About 9-10 beers available on a regular basis, with a cask every Thursday. Service is alright, beers are alright, and food is pretty good.

Solid food with adequate service. Great location near the South Coast Plaza shopping center, but what it really comes down to are the growlers. There’s no feeling like walking out of this place with a giant growler full of Karl’s beer.

Modern, slick place; central horseshoe bar with ten taps at both ends, brewing equipment to your left as you walk in. Only sell their own brewed (and other Strauss beers) beers with eight regular and a couple of changing ones. Happy hour food was good and the beers I had we’re fine. I however think my Bomber of Four Scowling Owls was a bit expensive at fourteen dollars, should have stayed with the four dollar pints during the happy hour. Service friendly and efficient with minimum fuss. Some TV screens dotted about but otherwise a fairly quiet and laid back sort of joint.

The only reason I stopped by here is it was 1.5 miles from my hotel and at a mall, we needed to stop by and pick up something before hitting the airport tomorrow. Typical chain look and feel. 10 beers on tap 3 of 4 of which were the same seasonals that were on tap at La Jolla. Food was decent as was the service. The food was good to. I enjoyed the Pork Chops.

I love this place. I love going, I love drinking, I love eating, I love taking home growlers. Sure they only pour Karl, but this is the one place with dedicated taps whose beer is good enough to be dedicated. In my humble opinion.

Karl Strauss is a San Diego based chain of brewpubs. Their restaurants are family-friendly and have a nice atmosphere. Their regular rotation of beers is average, however they occasionally surprise you w/ a good seasonal.

The service here was awesome. We didn’t get anything to eat, but the food looked good. This was a good find when we accidentally stumbled upon it. We got the sampler, and even though there were some left off, our server brought us all the taps for free. Beer was ok, not great, but good.

Brew pub location in Orange County. First time here - had a good experience. Beer was pretty solid - had the DIPA and the Imperial Stout. Food was overall very good and service was friendly and prompt.

Good outside patio seating durning lunch. Food was good with pairing beers, summer food abit spicey for me. All the brews where solid in style guidelines. Bottles where scared, but plenty of tap brews. A solid brewpub.
