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.

The service here was awesome. We didnít 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.

The service was great and the food was good. I had the six beer sampler and their sample size is very big--at least six ounces. The bartended gave me a couple extra for free, too. Unfortunately, I have to say that on the whole, the beers were disappointing. Iíll give it another shot sometime.

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.

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.

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.

Expensive is one way to describe Karl Strauss. They do brew their beers right on the premises, but lets just say that the selection outside of what they brew is pretty small. The atmosphere is cozy and definitely people friendly. The staff is friendly and catering, but lacking in beer knowledge...they make up for it however in cuteness! The food is good...may i recommend any of their pasta plates...very nice stuff!

Karl Strauss has a comfortable atmosphere, friendly staff, descent food, and an average selection of beers.

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.
