With handcrafted beer, eclectic menu, friendly service, and a lodge-like ambiance, Pacific Beach Alehouse is anything but ordinary. Dining Out magazine calls us "a world class micro brewery and restaurant," and "a destination for beer aficionados, tourists, and locals.

We offer a wide variety of savory handcrafted burgers, flatbreads, and signature dishes. We brew over 10 signature beers on site and use our own brews in many of our dressings, sauces, batters and even desserts. We feature three separate dining areas, each with its own unique atmosphere. You can sip a cold refreshing beer on our Sky Deck while enjoying the unparalleled views of Crystal Pier and the Pacific Ocean, or you can cozy up to the fire pit on our patio. Inside you can relax with your friends at our brewers table adjacent to our microbrewery. No matter where you choose to dine, you can catch the game on one of our 19 high definition flat-screens or catch up with friends or email using our free WiFi.

Our waitress was exceptional and all of our burgers were excellent. One person had the Bison burger, two the Alehouse Burger, and two the Beer Cheese burger. The bacon on the burger is very tasty.

This was not a good experience. My party of 8 ordered together, but two people did not get their two taco dishes for a long, long time after everybody else got their food. We had all finished eating by the time the last two dishes even came. No apology. Their food was cold, too. When we complained, the server shrugged her shoulders.

A friend with whom I had worked here in San Diego was visiting from Indiana. So where does one take an out-of-town friend from Indiana, well to the roof of the Pacific Beach Alehouse, of course. The food, service and views were all top quality!!!

We had prompt service and food tastes great. I had the fish tacos and my husband had a burger.

Maybe just an off day. It was Christmas and maybe they were short kitchen help. Waiter very courteous but we waited over an hour before our food was served. Food ordinary at best. Three menu selections sold out earlier. We don’t live in San Diego so won’t be back anyway.

Food took over an hour and that was disappointing. It would have been nice if the manager came to the tables to apologize.

I have NEVER had a bad time at the PB Alehouse. The burgers are the best, and their beer is good.

I found this place by chance. In my opinion it will be Better by day. It waa wayyyy too loud in the evening. If you can sit upstairs aim to do so. If you are a sports fan it is great for sports watching gatherings.

Food was not good. The service was slow and they switched waiters in the middle of serving us. Place was cool looking.

On vacation with the family. Food is okay , balcony is nice. They had a shrimp special, all you can eat - the had three options-this was a good value
Interior & balcony really worn- I am sure their best business is a party joint

The buffalo chicken flatbread was truly amazing. I’ve had it often at other places. This was great. You’ve got to ask for vegi-burger but you can get it anyway the beef burgers come. And they have tv’s everywhere so you can see Syracuse beat Clemson like I did. :)
Excellent food and service. Highly recommend.

The food was absolutely delicious and the service was great. Top it all off with a beautiful sunset and a relaxed atmosphere. We couldn't have asked for better dining experience. We can't wait to go back.

Went for the Thursday night all you can eat shrimp and was not disappointed. Yummy! It was crowded and loud, but definitely worth it .

If you want a quit relaxed meal don't go here. It's dark noisy and not comfortable. I can't think of anything good to say about my experience there.
