This is probably the coolest brewery and restaurant Iíve been to in a long long time. The gardens are nice and the restaurant floor opens up to them with great big bay doors. We sat on the cusp of outside to inside where there was a light breeze and plenty of shade. Nice seats. The bar area is super cool with a full view of the new brewing facility. Outstanding tap list with nothing but craft brews. Solid bottle list as well. Food was unique and while I did not love everything, I enjoyed the whole food experience. Itís probably lucky I donít live near here or Iíd never leave this place.

Good atmosphere with the stone theme and gardens. Great selection of good beer. They donít serve anything that isnít craft. A very decent bottle list. Friendly knowledgeable staff. They usually have some rare brews on tap. A must visit if your in the area.

This place was awesome. I have lived in the area for four years and really regret not going there earlier. The brewery is beautiful and it would make a great place to go and have not only a couple beers but dinner as well... If your in the area it is a must that you go check it out.

This is the bar that I judge every other brewpub against. The food is incredible - just as creative and well executed as Stoneís brews. Their selection of both interesting Stone brews (Triple dry-hopped Ruination, smoked porter on cask) and a large selection of other local brews - Ale Smith, Russian River, Port Brewing, etc., is excellent.
Well worth the short drive from San Diego!

AMAZING. I compare it to Willy Wonkaís chocolate factory. Great ambiance, awesome selection of San Diego brews, and Stone Brewery Only offerings like Double Dry Hopped IPA. Tour was fun, and the samples were a plenty. You can not pay for a drink and drink a lot. But, you wonít do that because the beer selection is top notch. Wow. Service was the only bad spot, as it took over an hour and a half to get our lunch. Food was great though so it didnít matter.

This place is nothing short of awesome. Great enviroment, awesome selection. Food is pricey, but very good. If you are a beer fan, you must visit the place as a pilgrimmage..

Revised Again: God Damn It, Stone! This is the second time youíve done it to me! No Spud Buds?!? The Arrogant Bastard Onion Rings were bad enough, but now this?!? I donít want a really expensive fucking pretzel! Get it together for fuck sake!
Revised: The quality of the food has steadily declined to not worth it. The kitchen is frequently out of ingredients (sometimes telling one person to re-order at the same time they bring everyone elseís food - thatís messed up), they frequently make mistakes on orders, and they are inflexible with substitutions, which is unacceptable for the price of plates. I complained about these issues (as did other tables on my last visit) to a very uninterested manager. As a woman at the next table to mine said, These guys are better at beer than food theyíve never understood the restaurant business. I donít know what happened to this place, since they were so good when they first opened. Iím done with eating here. Stick to the beer.
Previous: Iíve spent a lot of time at Stone, driving 120 miles one way fairly regularly just to visit. The beer selection of Stone and guest brews is absolutely outstanding. Cool glass, concrete, and stone architecture with a nice modern ambiance. The food is f

Arrived at 8:01PM from WI and little help from the shop which closed at 8:00 sharp except for directiosn to the local beer store. Environment is awesome with the Stone garden, large open space, and view of the brewery. Food was outstanding, nouveau cuisine with a Stome beer twist. Beer selection was outrageous, including a wide selection of hard to get CA and interesting Belgiam beers. A glass of the í04 RIS was all of $4. I wish I had a place like this in WI!

Interesting place. Nice atmosphere. Other amenities as well, but I have no desire to return. The food definately could have been better. Good beer selection though. If I ever do return I will park my @ss at the bar and drink only.

Well you need to get the map from the website or you will not find this place. Once inside there was a lot of stone, go figure, just an overkill and kills the ambiance. The Japanese styles rock garden is the best place to enjoy a beer as long as the weather is good. The beer selection was okay with the best provided by the guest beers. The food was very good but WAY TOO OVERPRICED, eat somewhere else prior to arrival. The brew tour was nice but in the end this is a major disappointment.
