This was my first visit to the Brewhouse. The first thing you notice when you walk in is the abundance of TV's on the walls. I liked the seat yourself procedure because my wife and I got to choose a booth with good views of the TV's. The service in this place is very friendly but unfortunately kind of slow at times. The menu is fairly simple with salads, burgers, sandwiches, pasta, chicken, and pizzas. They also brew their own beer on the premises and have a nice selection to choose from. They have a couple of pool tables in the back room along with additional tv's. Parking is scarce so if you come later in the evening you will probably end up walking a few blocks to get there.

On this day we split an order of cheese fries, a meatlovers pizza, and also each had a bowl of clam chowder. The cheese fries were tasty but a little too hot when they came out. When the server said they were very hot, she wasn't kidding around. The soup was a bit of a disappointment. Note to chef: try adding some garlic to the clam chowder. The pizza was above average and filling. All in all a good place to go eat some casual good and watch a game in a relaxed atmosphere. It's a nice change of pace from some of the upscale ritzy restaurants in La Jolla.

A few weeks ago we were surprised to be selected as one of the Reader restaurant review winners and recieved a gift certificate to the La Jolla Brew House. Last weekend we elected to use this certificate, and looked it up on the Internet. It is not located in the "downtown" area of La Jolla, but not far away and looked interesting.

This is more of a Sports bar, and we when entered there were several tv's on each with different football games to watch. Very comfortable surrounding, and as we were early, we were able to park across the street, although I suspect parking is more problematic later in the evening.

We had the Mediterranean Chopped Salad; it was quite large and tasty - almost enough for a full dinner for two. Lots of chicken and goodies. We then split an order of Mahi Grilled Tacos. They were very, very good.

Lots of different beers available, a fun and inexpensive place to try. We would go back.

Thanks to the Reader, and my winning review of the Thai restaurant Rama, I was able to have my first experience of the La Jolla Brew House for free. Well you know how they always say that free food tastes better?? It doesn't. I mean, it wasn't horrible, but it wasn't worth the gift certificate money I handed over. After standing around like an idiot because there was no one working there in site, we were finally handed two printed menus with crusty old spills all over them. It was a Sunday afternoon and we were the only people there for lunch, but that didn't stop the waitress from completely ignoring us. I guess they're just not used to customers. On a last saving note, I was also there recently for a large party in the back room and I have to say that it was great. The back room has pool tables, beer pong and its own bar. La Jolla Brew house is great for drinking, but not so great for eating.

The smell of stale beer froze me at the door: could there really be a dive bar in la Jolla? But my friend was already seated, waving me in, and there were a couple of other people watching the TVs, leaning on the sticky tables. The waitress recommended burgers ($12 each). We got them about an hour later. We'd asked for rare, but we got well-done. The cook was probably trying to protect us from all the grease. We couldn't eat more than a few bites.

Extra nice weekday lunch stop in La Jolla Village. Had the special - a perfect burger, fresh beer, and really good seasoned fries with enough to take some home. Free off-street parking is a plus anywhere in this neighborhood. Our server/bartender Linsay was extra friendly and service was quick. Their patio is a perfect place to enjoy the passing day.

Carol and I arrived at the La Jolla Brew House at 5:30 on a Sunday evening, and were offered any available table inside or on the front deck. Took one inside, but the noise was deafening, and being surrounded by 10 – count 'em, 10 – televisions did not present the likelihood of a romantic meal. We moved to a table on the deck, where there was only one TV, albeit giant, and a party of a dozen exuberant Valley girls. We ordered one each of the two Belgian beers on the menu, and a California Wrap and West Coast Grilled Cheese, both with Sweet-Potato Fries. We also had the waiter take a damp rag to the sticky tabletop. My wheat beer was hearty and flavorful. A sip of Carol's beer tasted inadequately aged to me, but acceptable her. She declared her wrap delicious. My grilled cheese was tasty but cold, and the cheese wasn't melted. I asked the waiter to have it heated. He brought it back a short time later, armpit-warm. We asked for a couple sides of mayonnaise. He brought one. But the fries made the visit almost worthwhile. The table captain brought our bill and disappeared with my charge card. The waiter brought another bill. Sorting that out was the coda of a nearly satisfactory evening.
