Nice local and national selection with 27 taps plus bottles.
Just a little corner spot but pleasant outdoor area to scope out the comings and goings on the street. Doors and the big garage door windows are usually open. Oddball but intriguing food. Chorizo corn dogs. steamed pork buns, beet burger, many salads, and great sweet potato fries.
Taps included Port Mongo DIPA, Ballast Point Sculpin, Victory Whirlwind, AleSmith Speedway Stout and Nautical Nut Brown, Green Flash Trippel, Avery Maharaja, Craftsman spring pilsener, couple from Dogfish Head, Allagash, and a few Belgians.
Waitress was great, responsive, cheerful, and efficient. Enjoyed the place on a rainy spring evening but it does get jammed and it's dark inside. Nice big chalkboard for the beer list.

Went to the PtY tapping yesterday, glad I did. One note, I was the first one there, almost an hour and a half before, yet was not served first when the keg game out. Definitely lowered their
quality and service score for me.
Its a nice bar atmosphere, very clean and very nice.
Quality was good, clean classes, yet were frosted. Not a big deal, but still kind of annoying that I had to sit and warm the beers up. Wasn't in a rush as you can see from my note.
Service was great. Prior to the tapping my glass was not empty for more than a minute. The tapping was shitty cause I did not get the first, but I understand that they have regulars to please before me.
Selection was nice, had a few session beers (Bruery Berliner weiss and Port Dawn Patrol) but only cause I wanted to be totally sober getting Pliny.
Good place, need to work on their special events.

My wife and I planned to eat here during our visit to San Diego, but the menu didn't appeal to us, so went went to a nice asian restaurant, J.Wok, around the block and came back.
Very contemporary design. It was a bit crowded for a Thursday night, but they were showing the NBA finals.
Our server was prompt and knew the beers: I was looking for something really hoppy and bitter and she made a great suggestion of Port Mongo.
The beer selection was pretty good, and the beer I had was inexpensive at about $5.

Stopped in here a few times - once late night and once for lunch - during a recent trip to SD.
Atmosphere is nice. It's certainly on the quiet side with loads of drink-related quotes above the bar in addition to a chalkboard listing the beers currently available. If you're having trouble reading the chalkboard like I did ask for a menu, they're identical. Outside is a small stoop with astro-turf - classy. One large TV sits behind the bar.
Quality is good. The beers are all served in standard glasses but the glassware is always appropriate. Good temperature and head is also served.
The service is good. We placed our orders and never had to wait long for drinks however our food took a bit longer than it should have. Other than that the servers were all friendly.
Selection is good. It's a nice combination of local, domestic craft, and international craft. I saw two beer engines but apparently neither of them were working.
Food was good, if not quite timely. I remember quite a few burgers along with a good deal of other alternatives.
Value is OK. It's a bit on the expensive side when compared with other quality beer bars but nothing over the top.
Overall this is a nice place that's more on the quiet side as far as good SD bars are concerned. Worth a shot, and if you're into mixed drinks at all ask about the Noble Experiment.

Heard about this place from a friend while I just happened to be in san diego for the day. So we decided to go there for lunch after after the padres game.
I really liked the look of this place. It was definitely nicer than I was expecting. A somewhat modern/artsy kind of vibe to it. I saw that one member of the wait staff was wearing a shirt that had on it, a picture of Jesus eating a hamburger. I thought it was the funniest thing ever! Then I came to learn that it was one of the shirts from the bar. You can buy them online. I think I'm going to.
So onto the beer... They really focused mostly on the San Diego breweries but I was surprised to see that they actually carried some of the better brews SD has to offer. Rather than just the usual Arrogant Bastard and Stone IPA... they had things like Old Numbskull, Speedway, Old Gaurdian, Double Bastard... etc. (I don't remember the whole list). The selection of beer isn't large but its good quality so I don't think I'd ever have a hard time finding something to enjoy at this place.
The food was also pretty good. The menu is a little different and nicer than your typical pub-grub. I got a grilled veggie sandwich that was very tasty! A friend of mine had a Black Bean burger and my other friend had a Chicken Wrap that was HUMONGOUS! Both of those were also very tasty and well priced. Pretty much everything is around ten bucks or less and definitely delicious.
I really liked this place and I know that next time Im in SD, I will be coming right back here for lunch again.

IPA mashed potatoes - breaded and fried, with cheesy sauce dip... Sweet potato fries sprinkled with blue cheese crumbles... Super spicy jalapeno macaroni and cheese... oh it just goes on and on with the great pub food that pairs so well with beer!
Extremely small bar though with limited seating, and at near full capacity on a Sunday evening. Server had an attitude, but I still managed to get my glass refilled and food on the table.
Many West Coast offerings as well as imports with a Belgian emphasis. A few German styles were noted as well. Parking can be difficult. Would only come here on a slow evening because of the small size.

After seeing many recommendations for this place in the forums, this was our first stop after checking into our downtown hotel, and we were not disappointed. I wish I could've had a better idea of their day-to-day taplist, but was pleasantly surprised to see they had their own version of Stone Winter Storm going. 25 Stone taps, but one non-Stone tap caught my eye first, Sculpin! Can't think of a better way to start off the trip.
Dimly lit with a hip decor. The place is small, but we didn't have to wait long to get a table. The food was very good. The wife had a mushroom burger that was cooked perfectly and tasted great. I had some Stone Smoked Porter braised beef ribs with jalapeno mac-n-cheese, highly recommended.
If you're staying downtown, I think you'd be missing out if you didn't check this place out.

I've visited Neighborhood a couple of times now (I'm in San Diego about once a month.) I discovered this place walking by on my way to the cheese shop next door. When I walked in I noticed management likes local beers and Belgian beers :)
I've been in the early evening hours and today during the lunch hours. The bar tenders are great, nice, willing to become knowledgeable (if not already), and nice to look at! The atmosphere is pretty cool, and for the sports fan a nice flat screen tv for viewing pleasure. The music they have playing is perfect for just sitting there having a beer, or socializing with your buds!
The selection is great on the menu, and kind of mysterious! They seem to have some rotating taps, as well as some rotating bottles in the cooler that they won't tell you about. Last time I got my hands on a Pliny the elder bottle, and I've read on BA that it's been on tap. Lots of good Belgians that I love (Rochefort, Orval, Westmalle, St. Bernardus, etc.) Lots of good craft beers as well!
The food that I have had there is good. I won't say great, but I usually don't focus on the food part. ;)
Overall I recommend Neighborhood to anyone that likes Belgian style beers, good food, and great atmosphere!

I went to Neighborhood a week ago because a friend informed me Pliny the Younger was on tap. After attempting to park in Downtown San Diego for 20 miutes I gave up an paid $10 for the lot. The inside of Neighborhood is dimly lit and there's a nice atmosphere. The tables are kind of clumped together so the busboy and the waitresses smash into your chair if they happen to visit your table. The beer selection is pretty good.
I went again last night and this time I ate. The food is good, though it's irritating they don't have ketchup, ranch dressing, or put salt and pepper on the table. I found this all to be slightly pretentious for a place that serves hamburgers and fries. Had I been in a high class dining establishment I'd know not to expect ketchup and probably wouldn't ask for it, but give me a break, you're serving hamburgers and french fries. If 95% of your patrons want ketchup, what is your reasoning for not providing it? Why do I have to wait 15 minutes for the waitress to come back to my table to get salt and pepper?
I will go back here if they have Pliny the Younger next year, but definitely won't be going back for the food or the service.

Checked out the Neighborhood after walking around in circles downtown trying to remember exactly where it is. A little out of the way, night right in the gaslamp, but closer to the stadium. Interesting decor, pretty open which I like. We luckily got a table right away and ordered up some good beers. Their draft and bottle list is actually really impressive. Even have Utopias if you're willing to pay up the ass for it. Server was nice, and she put up with our crap really well. I would like to go back sometime and have some more beverages here. They even have a little section of bar that sticks out the window where people were drinking basically on the sidewalk. Unless those were cokes, I don't know, but it would be a cool place to sit. Hopefully that way you can get hassled by some drifters while enjoying a Rodenbach.
