pretty generic brewpub...good location - probably why they stick around, but thereís just better food and beer elsewhere.

Located next door to Old California Restaurant Row in a Spanish style building. The place is rather large and has somewhat of a tired, chain restaurant feel. The beers are average with a couple of pretty good offerings. There appears to be only a standard lineup without any seasonals or special offerings. The food is fine and they offer a wide variety. I do not consider this one of the better brewpubs around.

Large restaurant pretty much across the street from Churchillís if you want some ratings. When I went the place was completely full and I was competing for a space at the bar with a softball team that was celebrating (loudly). Definitely not a fancy restaurant. I dont mind the noisy bar atmosphere but I do mind the slow and not overly friendly bar service. Didnt eat, the beers were not that good, I dont see much need to come back here.

Kind of an old-timey atmosphere inside. Small bar with a large bar area, decent amount of regular tables/seating. Service was pretty good, beers were okay, and prices were decent, too. Didnít see the food, so canít comment on that. Eight house beers and a few guest taps as well.

A nice place to be, with friendly staff. They serve good food, foor a good price. I wish the beers where as good as the atmosphere and the food.

Decent selection of their beers, food and service. Nothing too special.

Another mall located brewpub - we had a bit difficulty locating it at the mall. Arrived right after a very busy lunch hour. We just had the beers - only 5 when we visited - and some of them of very scetchy quality. Lots of wood in the dining area. high tables in the bar area - dark wooden. The prices are fine. If you are a ticker - stop by for the ticks - if you enjoy good beers go somewhere else.

They serve 7 average beers of their own. Some rotation, but it doesnít change often. A not-so special brewery-restaurant, serving American food. Better than going to most American chain restaurants, Applebees, etc. Churchillís is just across the street, so itís probably better to eat/drink there, unless youíve been there a million times.

Decent overall. The beerís above average, and itís a nice change of scene from Stone. Who knew there were other breweries in the area? Just a stones throw (no pun intended) from Churchillís, this place is worth a visit. The service was average and the food was less than inspired, but I think Iíll be back again anyway to try some other seasonal/ specialty beers. Their beers tend toward the yeasty and crisp finish side, and some are quite good.

Inside is well lit with murals on the walls, balconys and an odd tile floor that looks like this place was an un-converted ex-mexican restaurant. The service was good, the bartender helped me out very nicely. Most of the beers were mediocre, but a few stood out. They even have 2 of them on cask! Nice. The overall scene and ambiance of this place just killed it for me. Didnít check out the menu or anything.
