Crossed the bridge from San Diego to get there. Very appealing on the outside and clean, small and inviting inside .... they have a nice fireplace and cozy seating area .... the bar is a decent size and they do sell some tshirts, glasses, paraphernalia.... I had fish tacos they were excellent and not overpriced ... the beer was a little disappointing and the service was average .. Walked back to the brewing area and it is much smaller than I had imagined ... a few blocks away you can get perfect pictures of the USS Midway and downtown San Diego
Another brewpub that changed brewers and is slowly producing better beers. Off my beaten path so I don’t stop by often. They do have a few gems like Idiot IPA and their coffee stout, but are not always on.
been meaning to take another trip out to ’da island’ and revisit.
Nice enough place. Relatively typical Brewbup appearance. Pretty good prices. Samplers and individual samples available. Discounted food, beers and growler fills for happy hour. Service was pretty good, and I like some of their stuff a good amount. Guest taps as well, though they were all out of the Abyss when I was there, and it’s just plain mean to list that on the menu and be out of it.
Coronado island is great for touristy stuff such as viewing the San Diego skyline, and this brewery is a 2 minute walk from a nice lookout across the water.
Nice brick structure with ample seating for the volume of customers. Most beers were rather average, as was the food. This is one of those places with the (supposedly) funny signs about free beer tomorrow, if you don’t like the service then you can leave, etc.
Service was good though, and prices were very reasonable for San Diego.
Although beers are average overall, their red is above average and worth seeking in the bottle. Seasonals on tap are worth trying also.
Getting to Coronado means buying a ticket at the ferry booth. They pass every hour and take about 20 minutes to get to destination from which you have less than a 10-minute walk to reach the brewpub. While the place looks like a modern restaurant, it still feels vacation-like being there. Since SD does not really have so many world-class brewpubs in its inner city, I found the detour well worth it, enjoyed two fine pints of IPA and a tasty hummus plate. The service was straightforward, but prompt and the prices were actually lower than I expceted. All in all, a worthwhile destination that I’d call a must if you spend anything over two days in the city. + it’s pretty much on the way to Hotel del Coronado if you intended to visit that spot.
Nice place right across the the bay bridge, recommend a little visit to Chicano Park before jumping on the highway to Coronado.
This is a nice island in what seemed to be the high end of San Diego bay. Cozy brewery, with nice menu and samplers.
The beers weren’t as good as expected.
My fav was the nut brown, service was ok.
Nice walking distance to waterfront view.
