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.

Nice neighborhood bar. Maybe not in the best neighborhood but whatever....kind of a tweener area. Great place to have a beer and better place to eat. The spicy gumbo is phenomenal!

Small place, very nice food. 11 taps, but 4 had kicked and were not replaced (why not?). Bottle list was small but decent. With Toronado just down the street, I would choose that.
