This place is beautiful. Loved the interior and the garden and landscaping in the back is something else. I have never been to a more spectacular brewery in my life. The tap selection was good though I had hoped they would have some Stone specialty brews on tap. The food was ok, I think we just happened to get a burnt plate of union rings, since most of the other reviews love them. Service was ok. I will say that it doesnít have a very warn feeling to it. They are getting bigger and with that the place doesnít have the personal touch.

A fantastic place! Huge inside that is very spacious. Has these big garage-door looking things that open up one whole side of the restaruant to the outside, where they have a very nice, clean patio that overlooks this large, enclosed, park-like space with benches and walking path, all just for the restaruant. The food was interesting, definitely different from the standard brewpub fare but not scarry strange or anything. I had the macarroni and cheese, and it was great! The draft beer selection was very good, with both good stone selections and lots of nice regional and national selections. The list was solid, with some interesting limited brews as well. The bottle list, though somewhat small, was almost entirely eyebrow raising stuff, but I hardly looked past the draft list while I was there. The staff seemed friendly and fairly knowledgeable. Definitely worth a trip to this great place, although take note that it is rather hard to find, and not currently on mapquest, googlemaps, etc. Get the map off of the stone website before you go.

Wow. What an amazing place. The grounds and building are beautiful. The beer is of course good, though I was a bit disappointed in the selection. No XI on draft which was a big surprise considering everywhere else in town had it. The garden area is beautiful. Sitting in an Adirondack chair drinking excellent beer while watching hummingbirds (Annaís) and butterflies is hard to beat.

Off the beaten path, and not well marked from the road. But once inside itís beautiful - large open space. Friendly and knowledgeable waitstaff. Wide selection of beers (Stone and others) on bottle and draught, as well as a cask selection. I didnít eat a full meal there, but what I had was delicious. Iíll be back next time Iím in the San Diego area.

We went here for dinner on a last-minute whim (courtesy of wetherelís suggestion). We evidently just missed out on the Funky Bastard and Turbo Bastard made specially for the homebrewer event earlier that day the tap list was solid, with an emphasis on Stone beers (which I wouldnít usually order) and a patchy show of other stuff the bottle list was uninspiring. Nothing rare, and the Pizza Port Twerp that I ordered was the least satisfying Pizza Port I had all weekend. Still, great beer - just not as good as most of the other places we visited that weekend. But the food and the ambiance were phenomenal: the new facility is enormous (huge ceilings, outdoor seating with heatlamps, dark wooden and thoughtful Stone-ish design everywhere) the outdoor garden was gorgeous: small waterfalls, a central pond, wooden chairs and tables (if poorly lit). The food was absolutely wonderful: Aliís salad had great avocado and fresh vegetables, while my tofu stirfry (yep, weíre veggies) was probably the best Iíve ever had. The clientele was actually kind of odd for a beer-centric place: upscale, often older, Napa-winish, and (dare I say it) very republican. The dude next to me at the bar told me about his truck and made fun of our Prius rental car. I was unamused. Definitely an experience.

Visited 08/27/07. Wow, gorgeous looking place with natural colors and materials everywhere with stone (obviously), concrete, wood and glass. The seats for the dining area were particularly plush with over stuffed leather padding. The draft beer selection nice but seemingly not on par with what others have reported here. I ended up with a ratebeer top 50 bomber of Yulesmith Summer Ale. The food selection looks very appealing. But since I was trying to stay below $20 there were only a couple of options. I chose the buffalo burger @ $17.50. Damn, thatís expensive for a burger. So with that price I was expecting something very tasty. First problem occurred when I was told they only serve it as un-done as medium. Well OK, I prefer buffalo more like medium rare. But medium isnít too bad. So the burger arrived charred on the outside and well done and bone dry on the inside. At the time I was a little too courteous to the help (even though it was dreadfully slow even though the staff out numbered the customers) considering I was served a $17.50 piece of cardboard to eat. After leaving what had happened finally started to sink in. Needless to say Iím very disappointed with the experience.

Had a great time here. Went on the tour with the wife and kid and everyone had a good time. Had plenty of samples after the tour so no complaints there. The staff was helpful and nice, even for the only guy in the brewery with a newborn. The Bistro was awesome, however I did not sample the food. Weíll go back next time weíre in SD for sure. Oh yeah, and I couldnít help but get a growler fill of some 10th anniversary while I was there. Iíll bring her back next time I guess and fill her up again.

This place is really nice. Great selection of beer. Many rarities. The food is good, but exspensive. The garden area will be nice once everything is grown in. A must stop when in SD.

Great place with something for everyone. Food is a bit eclectic. The beer would be great with just Stone brews on tap, but with so many other micros too, itís just too much to take in on one visit. Must...go...back...

If i think about imagining somewhere on Earth better than this place I start to sweat and blood rolls out of my ears. This is what heaven should be.
