My husband likes beer - me, not at all, so keep that in mind... The staff were friendly and service was reasonable. I don't eat many of the things on the menu (fried foods, anything with wheat, etc.), not because I don't like it, but because these things just don't agree with me.

We stopped in for a late lunch, recommended by the staff at the timeshare. The beer was excellent - especially the porter. We had a steak sandwich and philly cheesesteak. The steak sandwich was served open-face. A large variety of sides are offered. The fires was just like we like them a bit of crunch with soft insides.

We went for a beer and appetizers. I love a brewery that has food and this one is great. Nice beers - small down home atmosphere. The onion rings were great, and the veggie and cheese platter was very appealing and hit the spot.

We were looking for some cold beer and Pub food one evening. We came across this small place in a non descript little strip mall behind the main drag. It is the brewery with a bar and dining area. It is a favorite of the locals as we encountered many of them on our way in and receive rave reviews.... More

The Philly cheese steak was solid. The chicken Philly was OK. The fries and wings were great. And I liked the wheat beer for sure. But... No high chair in the whole restaurant and a tepid welcome when we walked in.

This is a great micro-brewery. Their beer is really good and they have a very nice selection with lots of choices. The food is very basic bar food. It's OK, if you just want a bite to eat while enjoying a good beer with friends or family.

This place is a great little micro brew. The beers are good, including the Monterey Bay Wheat and the Big Sur Golden. You can buy your own mug and they hang it on the ceiling for you. The place has a bit of a local, older feel to it. It's not like Alvarado Street Brewery that caters to a younger,... More

Nice, friendly brew pub with excellent pub food. I tried four of their beers and loved them all (the Fat Lip was my favorite). I ordered the fish and chips and was pleasantly surprised and the quality and freshness of the fish and the crispy chips! Friendly atmosphere and reasonable prices.

When you walk in you almost immediately have to look up to see the support this joint has with the local sudsers. A very British feel deep in a small strip mall, a pleasant surprise. They have a lot of choices to pick from for a small brewery. The service the first time we went was a little sketchy, due... More
