Karl Strauss Costa Mesa

My wife and I had nearly written off this place due to changes over the year or so even though we live within walking distance.  Happy to report that they have found space amongst their taps to include a dark beer!  The last few visits have featured Imperial Wreck Alley Stout which is absolutely superb!  Their recent additions of Baked Oysters and Shrimp Po'Boy are both very yummy additions to their menu!  Four thumbs up from us on these recent improvements!
