Great food, good beer, especially the Tan Lines Brown IPA. It was the first day with the Covid restrictions eased and the server seemed new but worked hard to take care of us. The prices are above average but in-line with Stone Brewery.

Great vibe... Awesome food especially the smash burger... Now obviously the craft beers are a hit, but try their Beergarita.. Amazing taste ...

Very good beer, the food entries were good), but the service was slow and also unpredictable. Once seated I had multiple servers pass by, with the place sparsely populated at that time (~5p on Thursday), and no inquiry into whether I wanted a beer. I must have glanced around the room for 5 min just watching 4-5 servers walk around with no one stopping by to help. Eventually one server came by, but then didn't return so another server came by later to see if I wanted a drink. Overall it was clumsy to say the least as no one appeared to have an idea of who was waiting on the table. Eventually I just got up and moved to the bar and the service there was fine. I did have 2 bus boys in front of me who were discussing an issue at a table and using expletives. I was surprised they would carry on like this with a perfect stranger sitting right in front of them trying to watch the basketball game on the TV behind them. All in all I think this is going to be a great place to hang out, but the service I experienced was far below what I would expect. Perhaps its COVID hangover with places having difficulty finding people who want to work, or who care about the work they are doing.

Food was decent. Service was average at best. They ran out of salsa for the fish tacos, but didn’t say anything- just served it dry. Very loud inside- would have been much happier outside on their deck. Sadly the singer just added to the noise- not her fault. Would give it a second try once things settle in, but would expect better.

My wife and wanted a simple dinner experience with an outdoor ambiance. Upon arriving we were told that our table was ready - the hostess’ were very friendly. The table we were given was just off the bar in the center of several larger tables and inside. We requested on two occasions to sit outside but we’re told that those tables were reserved for people with dogs. We could wait for one, but it would be over an hour. At the time, the tables were not occupied. We opted to leave rather than stay in tight quarters inside. Management was not accommodating to our request.

My husband, a friend and I wanted to try out this new Dana Point restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised. We tried their spicy peppers as a starter. They were roasted and delicious. My husband and I shared the chicken sandwich and our friend had the fish tacos. It was all delicious. Although I am a long time wine drinker, I decided to try their on site produced beer. I asked our server which one I should try. He suggested a lighter fruity one and I liked it a lot. I liked it so much I ordered another one! My husband liked the beer he tried and so did our friend. We plan to return very soon. Try this new restaurant. I think you will be happy you did.

We had a great time with friends. Really enjoyed the energy and the service. The menu was a little sparse, and most of our party just said their meal was "OK". My bowl was great, though! Will definitely be back.

Went for the first time with family. They have a limited menu so we were perplexed when told they had no buns for the hamburger or chicken sandwich. I believe the grocery store is not even a 1/2 mile away. So we all got the tri tip that was frankly overcooked. We ordered the Oreo dessert but it was close to closing time so they conveniently forgot to make it. Being our first experience I’m sad to say, we were not impressed

My husband and I went for a date night. We sat at the bar and had a really good time. The atmosphere had a great vibe with a mix of young and old present. The beer and seltzers are seriously so good! We had three different flights and still didn't try their entire selection. Danny had great recommendations and took great care of us. We will definitely be back. (Those complaining about wait time etc need to keep the COVID restrictions on the food industry in mind-they are doing a great job with what they are working with. Support your local establishments!)

Overall Disappointing - we were so excited about a new restaurant in Dana Point - and a brewery! When we arrived, with reservations, we were taken to our seats - AT THE BAR! We corrected that and were taken to a table. The restaurant is doing a splendid job with social distancing and only a few patrons ignored the clearly stated mask policy. The service at this restaurant was appalling and unacceptable. While most of the servers seemed very busy, our server seemed more Interested in standing about. It took 20 minutes to get an appetizer of potato chips. She totally forgot after I asked for a second ale, and our food was delivered about 45 minutes after being ordered. My chicken sandwich had about 2oz of chicken and so much breading it was dreadful. But the atmosphere is upbeat and fun. The menu is sparse and uninspiring. The ale selection is very nice. Probably a great place to hang out and have good beer - but as for the food or service - stay home.

We wanted a casual but delicious spot for a family dinner and were thrilled to have found a table here. We all loved our meals and appetizers, the beer was great and it’s dog and family friendly. I’d also head here with friends or for date night. The servers were helpful and worked well together and everyone was friendly and helpful. Looking forward to going back!

Freezing! Even the manager was wearing a winter coat and it was not a cold day. We were seated about 2 feet away from another table where someone was coughing. Covid protocols were not being followed. Food took a long time and was only ok.

Wonderful new addition to Dana Point! The food was delicious and the staff was great! My son was visiting from Colorado and loved the beer selection and the pork chop. The burger was the best I've ever had. My husband is vegan and enjoyed the tacos. We will definitely be back often!
