We needed a break after Universal Studios and this is a great place to relax. I was impressed by the beers, hoppy and fresh. I had a flight named "Hops in a row" (Pintail Pale Ale, Mosaic Session IPA, Tower 10 IPA and Aurora Hoppyalis IPA) All beers are also available in single 4 oz tasters. Nice! Service was great too. A must visit if you visit Universal Studios. (Visited with my family July 12th 2016)

Well, at least I only had to pay $10 to park in order to check this place out. :(. I was surprised at how busy the CityWalk was on a Wednesday evening. Tourists, or is it a trendy hangout? In any case, Karl Strauss was no exception - busy, but not packed. I bellied up to the bar and ordered an IPA, which was pretty solid. Bartender offered me a free taste of a brewed on premises IPA which was very floral, not bad. Prices shockingly reasonable ($6 pints) given the location. Bartender quite helpful. Not worth $10 in parking, but worth a visit if you are otherwise here.

Stopped on our way into Universal Studios. Plenty of seating inside and out. Cool U shaped bar. The service was frazzled with 3 people at the bar, not sure what happens when itís busy. Standard Karl Strauss beers and 6 special releases. $6/pint, much better than the $11.50 inside the park.

Pretty decent, lots of selections, some decent, all Karl Strauss, so that limits it a bit. Service and knowledge of the beer was decent. Went when family wanted one last Tram tour at Universal but I did not. Handy.

Stopped in after a full day at Universal. Great location, it was cool just walking around the area outside the park. Solid beers on tap and the food was very good. One entree was complimentary because they said it took too long to bring out. We have waited much longer for food before, so that was nice.

Visited here for dinner while on vacation in early August í13. Nice polished corporate-brewpub decor. Sat outside overlooking the Citywalk - nice atmosphere. Had about a dozen of their beers on tap - I went with the sampler which was pretty solid. Waiter was quite knowledgeable and attentive. Food was was good and plentiful - menu full of a wide variety of regional favorites - moderately priced for the area. Worth a visit.

Visited here at opening time, large dining are and almost 360 bar. The bartender was very knowledgeable and very helpful. I had food and a flight for under $20. They have a rather large tap and bomber selection. Worth the visit if you have the time.
