Always outstanding service from Heidi ! (Best service in town) Delicious donners, spinach salad, fries. Midnight toker beer my favorite beer anywhere.
Great atmosphere, great view, great food, and service was perfect!
We enjoyed our visit. Sat outside and it felt safe even though it was a busy Friday night. We have been here several times before but this was the first time we reserved a table. Glad we did. Service was attentive and friendly.
Awesome food, beer, and outside view
We visit this place every time we are in town. Awesome food and patio. Great staff. Worth the visit.
Good place. Food was great but an interesting menu for a brewery so check it out before you go. Again good but interesting.
We went to pacific beach from AZ and as a vegetarian, it’s hard to find anything to eat that’s not fish and Amplified had a nice platter with pita, hummus, fried zucchini and falafel. We also ordered a side of their French fries and they were delicious. Their food overall was very tasty and we were in and out in about 30-40 minutes, meaning service was fast! Will definitely come back!
I loved the experience at Amplified Ale Works in PB! They treated me and my puppy with such amazing care and service. I had the kitchen managers son as my server and he was exceptional. Will be back.
We came late to our reservation, and the hostess was totally understanding and seated us immediately. The food and drink was spectacular, do yourself a favor and get the Doner Fries.
My favorite aspect was the service. The waitress was prompt and helpful, and actually steered us away from certain beers based on her questions and how we responded. She wasn't trying to just sell anything, she wanted us to have a great experience, and we did! Cant wait to go back.
This is one of our favorite venues in Pacific Beach for happy hour. Great second story setting with views of the beach and sunset.
Their beers are very good in my opinion, and usually the food would get four to five stars. The lamb that we ordered on top of our doner fries was brutally over done, thus the two stars for the food. We had a chicken donor fries order that was very good.
We will be back for sure!!
Outstanding service from Sara as usual ! New cook did a great job, everything was delicious. Recommend the zucchini, salmon kabobs, and all the beers. Cheers
Came here with my family and everyone was so happy with their food! Our server was awesome and the patio felt safe and comfy.
Great experience here for a bday!!!! Def recommend
This is one of the best hidden gems in San Diego! The view is amazing and the ambiance is exactly what you want for an outdoor beer garden overlooking the beach and ocean. The food is solid for a brewery, specifically their doner combinations! Not your average greasy gross food and has lots of healthy options. The bevvy's are also great from their beer to sangria! One of my longtime favorites in San Diego!
First visit to Amplified for Sunday breakfast / lunch - 3 of us had the fried chicken sandwich on the breakfast menu - and it was great. FYI - I ate it without bread and with the fried egg, super good. One of the other diners had chicken kabob with fries - which were also excellent.
The beer selection was great, we brought home a crowler of STRATACASTER - which was a favorite.
The tables offered an online menu and individual hand sanitizer with plastic separators - they've done a good job of keeping the restaurant safe but still comfortable.
It these COVID times, it is hard to find tables for large parties, but Amplified Ale Works-Pacific Beach accommodated us beyond our expectations. Our table for six was ready on time, all staff was wearing masks and keeping surfaces wiped, and all tables were socially distanced away from each other, while still managing to create a fun atmosphere on a Saturday night. Nice beer selection, and their specialty fries were AMAZING!!
Great service and great food!
Divine food with one of the slowest services around. If you have time, go for it.
One of our favorite restaurants! Great draft Beers, too
Great food, service, and ocean views! Dog friendly, we sat on the patio and the service was amazing. Definitely going back!
Our sever was amazing, great service and beer knowledge.
My favorite place to eat with my pooch. Great beer, food and staff!
Outstanding service from Sara ! Delicious Midnight toker and electric Mudd beers.
Enjoyed the Bonner pita sandwich and the mixed plate with shrimp. Great views.
Our customer service was amazing! Our host and waitress went out of their way to make sure we had an enjoyable night!
I am a fan of this location. You have outdoor seating and ocean views along with great beer selection.
Their kabobs are great, although this time around I found the serving to be small with only 2 small kabobs on the plate and the rest filler of rice and salad.
Service is great. Our server Tiana, was on top of things and very friendly.
Every time we go to amplified we love the food, always a great view on the deck. The only thing that can lack sometimes is the service, the servers don’t try to make conversation or chat or be friendly whatsoever it’s very to the point and that’s it. The service is always just OK to me.
Place hasn't changed a bit. Great food. Though covid has made venturing out much different, Amplified hasn't lost their touch.
Food and service were great. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
We love Amplified. It has been our first stop a soon as we come to the beach every year for family vacation. Excellent food, and we love the patio deck. Great GF options.
Great food and amazing service from Tabitha ! Wonderful view of ocean
Ryka Ohana was in town so we had to do it right and take her to a great establishment. As usual, Amplified did not disappoint!
This place is awesome! Our dogs love it here! Great food, drinks and service!
Amazing service and food as always
Great food that was also healthy. As always the view was special. The people working were exceptional. And not sure why but I’ve had a bad beer there.
Had a great time
Love this place. Good vibe. Good food. Good service.
Loud, lots of large parties yelling & screaming. I feel these are the places that spread coronavirus. Dismissive service my staff.
Great outdoor seating! Beach views and delicious food and beer
You have to get the donor fries! And all the beers are amazing!
Love this place! Amazing food, great drink selection, fun service! 10/10 highly recommend
