Visited here at opening time, large dining are and almost 360 bar. The bartender was very knowledgeable and very helpful. I had food and a flight for under $20. They have a rather large tap and bomber selection. Worth the visit if you have the time.
Pretty decent, lots of selections, some decent, all Karl Strauss, so that limits it a bit. Service and knowledge of the beer was decent. Went when family wanted one last Tram tour at Universal but I did not. Handy.
We needed a break after Universal Studios and this is a great place to relax. I was impressed by the beers, hoppy and fresh. I had a flight named "Hops in a row" (Pintail Pale Ale, Mosaic Session IPA, Tower 10 IPA and Aurora Hoppyalis IPA) All beers are also available in single 4 oz tasters. Nice! Service was great too. A must visit if you visit Universal Studios. (Visited with my family July 12th 2016)
I liked this place. Took the family on a Saturday night. They said the wait would be about 15-20 minutes. We were seated in less than 5. The service was great, the food was better than average, and I enjoyed my beer. (hefeweizen) My kids ate for free as well, nice surprise.
Well, at least I only had to pay $10 to park in order to check this place out. :(. I was surprised at how busy the CityWalk was on a Wednesday evening. Tourists, or is it a trendy hangout? In any case, Karl Strauss was no exception - busy, but not packed. I bellied up to the bar and ordered an IPA, which was pretty solid. Bartender offered me a free taste of a brewed on premises IPA which was very floral, not bad. Prices shockingly reasonable ($6 pints) given the location. Bartender quite helpful. Not worth $10 in parking, but worth a visit if you are otherwise here.
This place is a lot better than I thought it would be. I hate Citywalk but was there for a concert and met some friends at KS first.
They had a bunch of very good beers on tap and i tried a few. The Big Barrel DIPA is the standout here. I highly recommend that. The tower 10 is not bad and the Marzen was surprisingly good.
Food was good too.
I will go back if I’m in that god forsaken mall park.
