Definitely a great place to go. From the outside, it looks a bit like an industrial building from some film noir movie, but inside is very impressive. Garden is a great place to hangout. Beer selection is good, but not outstanding. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Food is very good, but they were out of a few things on the menu (we were there at 5pm on a monday).

I have visited at least half a dozen times since the SBWB&G has opened. First, the ambiance: architecturally impressive, beautifully executed and manicured space. I love it. The selection: awesome. All Stone beers, plentiful guest taps and, during special events like the two annual Winter Storms (so far) rarities from the cellar. This leads us to the problem areas... Food: the food is admirably conceived as organic and local, as artisanal and unusual as Stone’ beers. Sadly, they have produced mostly bland grindage. In fairness, the food has been improving steadily in execution and flavor over the months, so let’s just say things are improving. The service is sadly lacking, as in slow and inaccurate. This has not changed over the months. This extends even to the hostess, who wanted to deny seating for my party because only five of the eight had arrived. After using a little logic with her, they said the manager decided to let us be seated. Good move, as we ordered lots of food and beer between the five of us before the rest of the party arrived, who ordered almost nothing. Everyone has a nice enough attitude, though, which goes some way towards making it more tolerable. Overall, I have to say I am as disappointed with the way the place is run as I am impressed with the concept and physical place itself.

I work in Escondido and go to the brewery often. The atmosphere is second to none. You will not find any TV’s or music that you’d hear on the radio. Quality is top notch. Food is always hot and fresh and tasty and the beer is cold and quality as well. Service is good. The servers are energetic and likeable. Chipper... almost too chipper sometimes. The beer selection is top notch. The food selection is just okay. I would rather have a beef burger than a buffalo burger and more dishes without all of the fancy dressings and toppings. I like the Mac & Beer Cheese which is probably a heart attack waiting to happen but is absolutely delicious. A while back I was going to give the Bistro a negative review simply based on the prices... I have since tried more of the food and I think that the prices have come down somewhat over the last year, so I’ve changed my tune. The food is good, you just have to be in the mood for somewhat eclectic and fancy fair. The beer is a little pricey though especially when I can get my comm 1l growler filled with AB for $4 or get a glass of it for $4 at the bar. But the selection of craft brews on tap and in bottles warrants the cost.

The World Bistro and Gardens have come a long way. After a shaky start a couple of years ago, the food and service have seen great improvment and get better with each visit. The beer (Stone and guest selections) has always been excellent, and the food has evolved to become a worthy match. The Bistro is very modern and stylish, definitely a few notches up from most brewpubs and beer-themed places. The view into the giant Stone brewery is awesome. The huge gardens in back are beautiful and a nice place to enjoy some of the best beers made in the USA.

This is a fantastic facility that you can bring anyone to: even a girl who doesn’t drink and a roommate who would never drive from LA to Escondido just to drink. I did both at once and it went over like gangbusters. The selection isn’t what I hoped for the particular weekend I went, but was still better than I’ve seen since the Map Room. I would drive here every weekend if I could and stay the night. Just fantastic.

I live not too far from this place, so its an easy trip from Carlsbad to San Marcos for any of Stone’s special beer events. By far the most amazing decor and ambiance I’ve seen in a big brewery / restaurant. The gardens are a relaxing location to sip and contemplate brews with friends. Food, however, is way too overpriced for the quality you get. Go here for the beer, not the grub. Huge bar with a vast tap selection is quite impressive, with lots of import and local bottles too. You can usually find some nice vintage Stone beers as well, such as Old Guardian and various oak-aged beers. Double Bastard night is a must every year, and I hear their Winter Storm event is quite a rave too.

Stone World Bistro and Gardens is a truly amazing place, aesthetically. The beer selection is usually incredible. The food is a mixed bag. Some things on the menu are incredible, other’s are just ok. Service is usually pretty good. I have found that I enjoy the appetizers more than the food from the regular menu. Try to get a table by the fire pit. The garden area is really nice, especially on a summer night.

this was a very cool place. Only have one bad thing to say about my experiance here. I ordered a beer, it came in a brandy snifter, my buddy ordered the exact same beer anout 10 minutes later and his came in a session glass at least twice the size! The waitress said it was a different bartender, that was the only explanation I got.

It seems amazing that after all the time I’ve been to Stone this is the first time I sat down to write a review. Of course this is the first time I ate in the Beer Garden so maybe I’ve had an excuse. WOW! What a nice place. The architecture of this place is amazing, light and airy and very modern looking. Wonder if its won any awards, it should. Sat just inside by the window so I was kind of outside as well. The food was amazing and they have an amazing beer list both on tap and bottles. Top end and eclectic menu, with items like wild duck tacos and buffalo burgers and the norm. That said its not cheap, but it is well within the price range for comparable food and décor elsewhere, perhaps even on the low end. Well worth the trip. I did go on the tour last time I was there, before the garden opened and it is also well worth the time.

Beautiful place. 20 taps or so including 5 years of double bastrd. Was hoping for something special on tap from Stone but nothing. Nice bottle list. Decor & outside beer garden is top notch. Food was pretty good also. BBQ Duck tacos were great. Must stop when in San Diego
