The only downside to this location is that growlers are not filled here

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.

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.

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)

I liked this place. Took the family on a Saturday night. They said the wait would be about 15-20 minutes. We were seated in less than 5. The service was great, the food was better than average, and I enjoyed my beer. (hefeweizen) My kids ate for free as well, nice surprise.

Nice place to relax and enjoy a great craft beer after a long day of amusement park fun or to party all nite long at the City Walk. Food is average. Beer is great.

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.

This place is a lot better than I thought it would be. I hate Citywalk but was there for a concert and met some friends at KS first. They had a bunch of very good beers on tap and i tried a few. The Big Barrel DIPA is the standout here. I highly recommend that. The tower 10 is not bad and the Marzen was surprisingly good. Food was good too. I will go back if Iím in that god forsaken mall park.
