I love this place! Simple, to the point, and lively. A quickly morphing tap board. I especially love the memorabilia cases in the hallway out to the patio. Also, the cleanest bottle display Iíve yet seen in a bar- all lambics in a row, etc.

Been to Toronado SD a few times. Always fun- gets pretty crowded at night like a good dive bar. Prices are cheap and tap list is extensive, ever changing, and highlights west coast local breweries. Food is typical bar food but there are some yummy things in there and it is all prepared well. Good service. Best thing about this place is you can get Cable Car for $40. A steal.

Amazing place. Very friendly and helpful staff. Tremendous tap list and unmatched bottle list. Didnít try the food, but the burgers looked great. Worth going far out of your way for this one.

Cool place with an inviting interior... the place is mostly dark wood and I dig that. Long bar with maybe 15 small tables. I could see how it coud get crowded, but a deck in the back helps out a little. The tap were amazing when I was there, donít know if that is the norm. Bottle list was really good too. Service was great and the food was above average.

Kind of sterile in the ambiance aspect. Too bright, too open. Not very cozy. Great overall quality. Really amazing tap and bottle selection. The night I went they had a Port Brewing special going on with lots of great stuff. Service was decent if somewhat impersonal. When I asked an opinion between two Imperial Stouts, the bartender admitted not trying one and poured us each a nice sized sample of the one he hadnít had. Food was really tasty. Reasonably priced.

Flew in to San Diego to attend the 2011 Bruery Reserve Society party and HAD to stop here to try some beers. We landed at 11am on a Thursday and hailed a cab to get us to Toronado as they opened at 11:30am. We were a little early and waited outside for a couple minutes but soon enough the doors were opened and we were the first to walk in. We were greeted by a very friendly bartenter whose name escapes me but it was either Brandi, Brittany, or something like that with a B. Nice large bar and plenty of tables. A list was provided with all the beers available along with a giant baord above the bar that is more up to date on what is available. My eyes were drawn to the coolers though and peaking out was a nice looking 2010 Lost Abbey Cable Car calling my name! For $40, itís an expensive bottle but give how hard it is to come buy, $40 is minimal. After that I enjoyed a couple other tasty local beers and ordered the pulled pork sandwich, which was just awesome. I would totally go back here to drink/eat anytime.

Abosloutely amazing tap list. The atmosphere was a bit underwhelming compared to Hamiltons, but a great place to sit and sip world class beers. Had some sloppy joes there that hit the spot. Good prompt service. Check out the glaasware in the trophy case near the toliets too!

Stopped by the Toronado after a day at the San Diego Zoo. Although some questionable characters floating around the streets, once inside a beer nerd will feel at home. From the bar, you can see that their bottle selection is more than adequate carrying a wide variety of brews from Lost Abbey, Russian River, Hair of the Dog, Cascade, Deschutes, as well as an extensive international offering. The staff is knowledgeable and nice. Great specials - when we were there it was Local Drafts (which included all Southern Cali Brewers) for 3 bucks. Highly recí
