This was one outstanding dinner. Beautiful evening on the patio with a Belgian Trappist Stout and a Michigan Porter.

The best burger I can remember in a long time. Haven't paid 15 bucks for a burger before, but this was a bargain: 1/2 pound New Zealand grass fed beef topped with shoe string garlic onion rings. Split it with my business partner and had half of her chips and fish which also were broke the mouth.

Great waitress. Fabulous beer. Incredible food. Perfect, laid back setting. What more could you ask for?

We drove around the La Jolla area, checking out TripAdvisor reviews for restaurants. We saw this place, small quaint with outdoor seating on a gorgeous day, checked the review and went in. Great service, great atmosphere and some amazing tasty food. We ordered the Fish n Chips, Buffalo Burger and Sweet Potato fries for lunch. Our food arrived perfect, lots of flavor, good portions. Our server was friendly, attentive and totally awesome!! We loved this place. We will definitely be back!

When a great Burger Joint also has the "Gubna" on draft, you can't beat it. Cool atmosphere and good grub to go with an extensive Craft Beer selection. Dug it!

If you are in to local, regional, and worldwide beer selections, this is your new home. Sitting outside in the open air, having a few cold ones, eating crispy chips with malt vinegar...this is the way life should be. Staff were excellent, location was excellent, and we are so pleased we popped on by. GO THERE!

Pages and pages and pages of beers to choose from; local, import, draft, bottled, light, dark, hoppy, anything you could possibly like or want to try is there. You can order a 4 oz sample for $2.50 and try one out before committing to a glass. The server was very knowledgeable about the beers and offered suggestions when we told her what we enjoyed. The place is a hole in the wall with about 8 tables inside a a covered area outside with more tables. The beers we settled on were very good, but I wasn't prepared for how good the burgers were. Half pound burgers that came from sustainable sources with no hormones added. Fabulous flavor with interesting combos for toppings: I had the burger with marsala mushrooms with cheese that I can't spell (starts with a g). I ordered it medium and it came medium. Surprise! Kelsey M was our server and she was wonderful. Made us feel very welcome when we arrived, was very helpful in our choices and did everything with a smile. Great restaurant!
