Bizarre... They always seem to do good business.

I wonder if there's a backstory here... Issues with The Irvine Company, or perhaps they're trying to gouge them for rent, etc... Because if Stadium Brewing Company can figure out how to stay in business, I can't imagine that it's a pure monetary reason to get out.

What a shame ... I've only recently started going here after my volleyball games on Friday nights. The food is really good... however, the past 5-6 times I stopped by, they had stopped serving dinner at 9:00 or so... and only serve drinks until like 11pm.

If a brewery cannot generate enough business to serve food on a Friday night .. I guess something is really not working right.

We stopped going there a few months ago. They had an amazing Philly Steak sandwich, and their Pizza di Parma was excellent!

On a related note, I have been seeing several established restaurants get the boot from the Irvine company, as they have been raising retail lease rates, etc.

e.g. The Daily Grill in Fashion Island is gone..
