I stopped in when it was pretty crowded but was able to find a spot at the bar. The beer garden out back had closed for the night due to the proximity to residential housing and the desire to keep the noise down. The wrap-around porch is a real nice spot for a beer and bite. A good lineup of beers with friendly service. Good options I hadn’t seen elsewhere. Very nice option for a meal with great beers.

Multiple ambiance, terrasse, comptoir extérieur, bar, salle à manger tous chaleureux avec un penchant pour le sophistiqué. À quelques pas du Toronado, Rip Current et la floppée de hotspot de la 30e.

This was the 4th stop of the day so we were pretty loud and obnoxious but this place was great. Superb list of Belgians including Duvel Tripel Hop. Patient and friendly employees, games, and excellent food. Spent 4 days in San Diego and this place was the best.

Toronado is quite loud, and Ritual was quite the opposite, great ornate wood bar, very good service and the owner was also a very nice lady and knew her beer, and the SD beer scene very well. The cheese and charcuterie plate was very tasty, definitely worth the stop if you are in this great area for beer!

Visited June 22, 2013.

Being across the street from Toronado makes this a good candidate for a place tick while on 30th. They have a good tap list and the server was nice but he definitely took offense to my hating on the New English Humbly Legit IPA, which tasted like the brewer decided half way through the boil to toss in a bag of chopped vegetables and a handful of change. Despite the presence of that beer the tap lineup was pretty good. I opted for a glass of Duet and we got some unkown dunkel which turned out to be good. The atmosphere, service, and prices were all pretty good. Will definitely stop in again.

Nice outdoor patio area and a small bar area inside. Took a seat at the bar. A small tap list with a few solid local beers and a few things that are a bit more obscure. Good service and pretty fair prices. Food sounded good, but the kitchen had closed by the time we arrived.

You wouldn’t think that a little "tavern" would sling such awsome food but this is a foodies’paradise. I am not a foodie - I’m a beer afficianoado or something to that effect. I like good beer. OK? This place carries Alpine on tap on a regular basis. They also have an assortment of fine craft brews. If they are not San Diego beers,they are nonetheless excellent beers you would not be embarrassed to serve to your mother. But the food is a real treat. This stuff is gormet quality throughout (even if my spelling is not gormet quality), and I’m talking about the snacks at the bar or the plates in the restaurant in the back,. Good stuff from a source you would not expect. Well, expect. Check this place out if you can find a place to park. If you are tempted try Toronado across the street, at least eat at Ritual, the food is much better.

Had lunch here on a Sunday afternoon. Neighborhood restaurant and bar in a mixed neighborhood. Outdoor and indoor seating spaces. Friendly service. About 10 local craft beers on tap. Food was good but portions were small. Maybe better for dinner.

Following a lunchtime visit to the wondrous Toronado, and to snatch some pizza in the interim, I wandered a few steps to the Ritual Tavern (I guess coming here from Toronado must be the ritual), where I made my way to a dark and claustrophobic bar area for my final evening quaff. That said, there were offered a great choice of draft specials from which to choose. I went for a Left Coast Voodoo Stout ($4.00!) The service was decent despite the clusterf--- atmosphere. So, I enjoyed my stout immensely and made my departure. All in all, this was another great day in San Diego. So, boarding the No. 2 Bus for my return trip to downtown and bed, I anticipated tomorrow, because after all, “Tomorrow is another beer.” (My sincere apologies must go to Scarlett O’Hara.)

shepard’s pie, mussels, Duet and Lightning Pilsner and a comfy back patio covered in hops and passion fruit. fun place with a solid bottle list, interesting dishes and small but well-selected draft list.
