Nice space/aesthetic, attentive service, QR code/contact-less ordering, localized average prices for food items, great beer with guest taps, above average quality food for the most part. Wait times during popular times are mostly reasonable. Planes are loud but that's to be expected it you're under a flight path. Outside area is a little more interesting than the inside area. This is a great space and place when only a certain amount of people are let in at a time. Otherwise it gets a little over crowded. Entree wise, I would personally go elsewhere, but their entrees aren't terrible. Stick with appetizers. The poke, and the chips and guac specifically. All in all I think this is a great place for appetizers and one to two beers. Maybe a beer flight. Maybe pregame with some pals.

Due to coronavirus they have changed the layout to make it safer to eat and drink. You order using your phone now with a QR code that's on your table. It really easy and makes it simple to social distance while getting your favorite beer.

Some really good beers available. Wish they were distributed so I can have them at home. The truffle fries are great.

My third time here. First under Covid. 1640 hours arrival today Friday I'm 49, casual one or two beers with some food kind of guy . Large Entrance space but we have to wait outside with only one person allowed to speak to the host at a time - did not get that at all. Saw from outside a gentleman host seating the lady in front of us. He didn't even acknowledge us that or if he would be back. Waited at the host station for like ten minutes. . Then looks like a lady host or waitress did acknowledge us and seated us quite quickly. Gentleman dropped menus off at the table. No greeting, no welcome, he did let us know that we order thru the Table QR code. My son, 24, frequent Ballast Point Regular since Gordon Biersch Closed. He handled the phone app order. Beers ordered. Now discuss food. Wings sounded good but since we can't choose sauce we want to do half Truffle half the other. App doesn't allow us to do that. I can't see his phone so get mine try to scan and log on. And No, won't let us do half and half. Can't get someone to stop long enough to even help us. So on the beer order under special order my son writes out the request. Kevin brings us the beers, quickly, good. We ask Kevin about the our request. He has to go ask. My son goes restroom. Kevin returns promptly during that time. He verified that we could do the two sauces on the side. Again we have to order thru the app. Which is my son's phone so I can't ask Kevin to just put in the order. Son comes back. Sauce on the side is no good. Now there is no one to ask about another option or question. The servers are A 2 B back to A station . No eyes contact on the way back to A- kitchen or the bar. We were seated in the outside area just outside the fireplace. One server even takes a dog bowl with water to a table and went straight back to the inside bar area. I had my eyes Locked on but no avail. I wanted glass of Water. I went to the Bar. Two guys behind the bar, very attentive great . NP We decide on Truffle Wings. Again arrived Promptly. Very temp hot. Great platter Presentation. I asked that gentleman for Extra Ranch. *Never ever received it. * No one ever stopped by to see how our food was, if we needed anything. No Server ever stopped in the the patio area. They came in with items, dropped them off and gone. There was one person that cleaned a couple of tables and did stop at the little outside wooden bar but unable to get any eye contact. Truffle Wings listed under "Plates 2 Share" We never got any plates. Any Silverware and only one napkin to each of us. So again I went to the bar asked for three plates - one for bones- and extra napkins. Again same two gentleman behind bar. Quick, attentive, received them right away. . Truffle Wings were stupendous, temp, great flavor, cooked perfectly. Very very delicious. 1st time trying them. Vegetables we're good as well. Wanted to have another beer. But with the experience we had, we decided to go somewhere else. Now all done and paid. The guy that had cleaned a few tables Did come over and take our plates and cleared our table. I did acknowledge the Covid situation with him as to try and empathize the situation. I just let him know the food was excellent. The Wahoo Beer kind of orange style was also excellent. Flavor. The service was just nill. He did apologize, we had a good two minute talk or so. On our walk out. Again got eye contact with him as he was bringing a dish out to the patio area: He thanked us for coming in. As we left there lady host was there but was speaking to incoming customer did not mention to her about the lack of service, also since I discussed it with the other server. * Hope service can get better and to be able to order verbally if we return. I'm not super sav with the phone app. * Would request that customers could choose Wings with both sauces and a Red Help button or just Servers to stop by the table to see if we have questions. #1 Food Chef

You can see behind the glass how they are making great beer! This place is only for craft beer lovers, huge on the tap list, great food menu and a huge terrace with great music and atmosphere. I would recommend this place to anyone who is interested in getting to know more about this fascinating world. The owners of this place did a marvelous work with all the details at the bar, you can also see sports here while you enjoy good times. Tip: a great place to see airplanes passing by. 100% percent recommended by WW craft beer lover!
