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.

I liked the feel of this place, but think the food is a bit over-priced. I agree with JohnC that the beer is average, but I have had a seasonal or two that shocked me. Nice place to visit once or twice.

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

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 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.
