Stopped in for dinner and a few rakes. This place is hard to find using your typical maps app, so make note of the address and follow the numbers on the buildings. For the record, if you enter the main shopping center entrance, it’s off to your right near the Pizza Hut.

Nice patio area and some dining room seating off to the left with the bar to your right when entering the restaurant. Sat at the bar and perused the beer menu. They do small pours/flights, which is always appreciated. Grabbed a handful of new beers to taste. Food is I guess a bit along the lines of fancied pub food. Didn’t feel like ordering a burger and fries, so I got the seared Ahi tuna. Wasn’t bad, but kind of bland if you didn’t use their sauce. Wouldn’t order it again.

Service was great and friendly, particularly from the one woman who I ordered my beer from. Overall, pretty good pricing on everything. Would come back.

This gastropub is tucked neatly away in a shopping area just off I-15 in Rancho Bernardo. The host stand is large and welcoming (though it took a couple minutes for an actual person to welcome me). There is a community table to the right of the host stand and the bar is directly behind the stand, though it is quite loud. There is ample seating inside but I chose the heated patio while I sipped beers and enjoyed the ceviche and beer cheese soup. I must say, this is by far the best beer cheese soup I have sampled. My server was very attentive and friendly and other’s servers seemed to be offering equal treatment.

Sort of out of the way in a random strip mall. Sunken interior with a separated bar and smaller main dining room. Large tap list with focus on local southern CA stuff. Food menu looked amazing and couldn’t decide what to get. Wife got the rabbit burger, which was very interesting and tasty. I got the Burger of the Gods, which was yummy though the tough bacon was difficult to eat with the soft burger. Hawaiian macaroni salad was okay, probably would go with a different side next time. Service was friendly, attentive. Custom tasting flights available is always a bonus. Was able to find some oddball beers here you can’t get really anywhere else like Allagash Midnight Brett. They also have some special beers made just for their anniversary. Overall, good food (not as great as I expected but will need to do some more menu sampling), great beer selection, just out of the way location wise. Not expensive is a big bonus.

Urge has a typical gastropub ambiance. It’s spacious and clean with some cool art on the walls and cool music on the speakers. The beer list is extensive with full pours and smaller pours available for everything on tap. There are a lot of interesting and rare drafts and bottles with emphasis on west coast brews, specifically local stuff. The food. . . I’m not sure I can find the words to describe how delicious the food is. We ate the garbage burger which is a beef/smoked wild boar patty with beer cheese and sauted mushrooms and onions, a beet and goat cheese salad, mind-blowing ale-cheddar soup, with a side of some kind of broccoli hybrid. "Delicious" does not do justice to what my tastebuds experienced. Come here to have a great beer and make sure to come hungry.

La meilleure sélection de fûts observée jusqu’à maintenant. Une quinzaine d’imperial stout comme la Parabola, Older Viscosity, Abyss etc., Alpine Duet et une bonne quantité de délicieuses raretés. Si vous êtes masochistes, jetez un coup d’oeil sur la liste de bouteilles. La bouffe était correct mais sous assaisonnée par moment et l’ambiance très banlieusarde...Mais la bière. Mon dieu, la bière.

In a funky shopping center, the place is bigger than expected. Large tap selection. I was lucky enough to show up when Lost Abbey put 5 beers on tap including Spontaneous Cheer!! The food was really tasty and the staff friendly. A great place to spend a couple hours beating up your liver..

Urge works the upscale gastropub vibe well. Their veggie burger easily falls apart, but the beer selection is good and they are pulling together some good events. Not a bad spot for a more beer-empty part of town.

Not hard to find with previous raters hints. Was dark and cool but with heaters the patio was cozy. Beers were good and plentiful. Meatloaf was tasty. A lot of love for Stone in the merchandise shelf.

A decent spot in an out door plaza in RB. Nothing particularly special about the ambiance, and the service was more or less average. The food was a little above average, but not quite as awesome as the menu promised from the descriptions. Decent selection of beers on tap, which tended toward reliable sellers like Duchesse de B. and St. Bernardus and a handful of west coast ipas and Stone brews. All in all, there are better craft beer bars in SD.
