A word from La Jolla Brewing Company
LJBC is meant to feel like your local neighborhood bar and restaurant where everyone is welcome to enjoy a cold beer and a good meal at the end of the day. It’s that really cool joint that only locals know of, much like many of the landmarks found in La Jolla. We want to create an environment that is relaxed yet exciting, comfortable and knowledgeable, welcoming and accessible. LJBC is a natural extension of La Jolla, as close to the people as the Neptune Cottages are to Sunny Jim Cave.

    Only complaint I have is that out waiter was absolutely terrible. Maybe checked on us once and it was after we asked a busboy to grab him. He spent most of his time sitting down at a table with some girls he knew instead of waiting on us. Other than the very bad service the bar was a very nice place to get dinner and a drink. I will maybe consider going back but I really can't get over how bad the service was.

    Loved the outside sitting with fire pit. Great for group outing. Went to try different beers with my husband and it was Awesome!!!!! I would recommend this place to friends. On a side note the food was not anything spectacular. Had wings for appetizers (hot) had mac and cheese pork bowl nothing special and my husband had the duck leg which he did enjoy. I would definitely go back and again would recommend. I will also order something different on the menu.

    Was my first time at this establishment, and I was using a Living Social coupon. I had requested outdoor seating in my Open Table reservation request (not knowing if they even had an outdoor area), and upon arrival was thrilled that a table was reserved for our party in the outdoor area. Our waiter, Tim (I think was his name), was courteous and knowledgeable about the food on the menu and the beers they brewed. All the food we ordered was delicious, and there wasn't a beer we didn't like! Everyone in our party of four enjoyed it and we will be repeat customers!

    I really liked the hot brie in a fila crust with drizzled basalmic reduction, sliced apples and almonds. This came with sliced warm toasted bread. Also the hummus dish with tzatziki and warm pita bread was very good.

    This restaurant has been completely upgraded and remodeled. The menu is also new and fresh with some great new options for the healthy eater. I had the seafood stew and it can qualify as a Chioppino. It was delicious and the fish was tender and tasty which isn't always the case. My husband really enjoyed the IPO beer. Also there was a guy there doing trivia so it was very entertaining.

    I had the delicious Cobb salad. My friends had the Mauhi and the wings with macaroni & cheese. Yummy!!! The Neptune light draft was delicious and refreshing and the Margaritas were delightful.

    We went to La Jolla Brewing Company on a recommendation from a family friend and it turned out to be a fantastic dining experience. The food and service were top notch and well worth the price. We had two kids with us and they were also very happy with their dinners and dessert. We were visiting from Iowa, but we'll definitely go back if we ever make it to La Jolla again.
