Visited October 17, 2013.
Had to drive through Orange/Anaheim so I figured Iíd get a quick place tick, and as it turns out a glass of their house beer, which was a honey blonde (that they claim is made at Firestone but Iím thinking itís made at Bayhawk) and an order of baked brie covered in garlic. Even on a week night it was pretty busy but the service was able to keep up with everyone. Of the several dozen taps the best one (in my opinion) was the Hangar 24 DIPA. The food was quite good if youíre not too health conscious to eat a block of cheese and garlic for dinner. Also of note is that this is very close to the Pond so if youíre in town to see a Ducks game or possibly a UFC fight or a monster truck rally then you can add this to the list of better beer options in the immediate area (Noble Ale Works is just across the freeway). Itís also pretty close to Old Orange Brewing (practically walking distance) and Valiant Brewing (a mile up the way).
While this was a pleasant surprise I wouldnít make it a destination on itís own, but rather a place to have a pint if youíre with people that arenít as much of a beer nerd as you are.

I found this place by accident and love the lounge area and outdoor seating. The service was great, and the appetizers very tasty. The beer selection is standard as far as what other good pubs would offer. Overall, I would definitely come here again to grab a drink with some friends.

Decent selection of beers, but all pretty much the standard stuff. Convenient location if youíre going to a game/show at the Pond. Food prices arenít half bad and the service is pretty good. The prices on beers are kind of "wtf?", though. Ordered a pint of Sculpin and the check came: $9.72. Seriously? Scrolling past in the future.

This is a new, second, location for the Pint House; the first is in Fullerton. Itís just down the street from the Honda Center & Angel Stadium. Iíd certainly hit this place before a game. There were 28 beer taps, mostly micros; the food was very good as was the service. It has a very nice atmosphere on the inside; you could certainly bring your family for a nice meal.
