Went here right before 94.9 fm show at 4th and B. The place is surf themed with flat screen tvs throughout the place playing that night college football. The place was busy but not what I would call pack. They had a good selection of beers mostly local beers like Stone , Alesmith, Alpine, Greenflash, and pizza port. They had carlsbad cronic and stone AB. I had a pint of Alpine Pure Hoppiness which was 5 dollars. The food was great tried a roasted eggplant zucchini quesadilla and Cali Cobb salad. My brother had the pull pork sandwich and my wife had grilled mahi mahi. All the food was a good sized portion and the bill wasnt bad at all. When I see another show at 4th and B I will go here again. Its a nice alternative choice to the always packed Yardhouse just a few place down from here.

Thought I'd check this place out because I was already downtown and I'd heard they had Alpine on tap. Like the review below says it is a surf themed bar, with high benches and tables. The crowd seemed like typical fraternity/sorority types. It wasn't super busy, but it was pretty loud--maybe because they had hooked up the football game to the DJ sound system.
They have about half a dozen taps of local beer listed on a chalkboard above the bar. I ordered an Alpine Duet, but the bartender brought me what turned out to be the Pizza Port Avalanche Belgian Ale. It's really a strange feeling to expect a hoppy IPA and taste a yeasty Belgian. So I exchanged the drink no problem. But they were out of Duet, instead they had Pure Hoppiness which was fine with me. I guess they just hadn't changed name on the board yet.
There was a mix up with my food order too, but they did fix that eventually. The food was good and the portions are huge.
Overall, despite the sub-par service, I still would recommend the Local, if you find yourself downtown and thirsty for some good beer.

Downtown San Diego, a block or two from the Yardhouse, on a relatively quiet block of the Gaslamp, this place is set up with mostly high bar tables and a long wooden bar. The theme is local, with lots of surf paraphenalia and San Diego stuff, bordering on Hawaiian. I had dinner once on a Sunday evening and I've walked by several times. Doesn't seem to get too crowded and what crowd is there is more of the swillin beer crew.
Beers: they've got less than a dozen taps and none of them are hoppy. There was the Stone Pale ale and the PizzaPort Chronic (note: this is an amber ale). Both served ice cold, sigh. Other beer selections are less adventuresome.
Food: overall prices aren't that expensive, and the portions are good, but -- burritos and hamburgers for $7.50+! The burger wasn't that good. The Big Wet Burrito was pretty good and huge.
Overall: not all that interesting a place.
