I came to visit my Aunt in Salinas, and she suggested this place. She likes their "Scottish Red" beer. I'm not a beer drinker, but I do like food! I had their Sun dried tomato pizza. My Aunt had the angus burger and sweet potato...More

We got burgers, a ceasar salad and fries. The service was great. Older brewery though. The burgers were tasty but there is am additional charge for everything added to the burger. Salad was really good.

Nice setting. Service ok if a little forced. Food was fine, nothing special although the crab cakes were better than we've tried at other places. Standard prices. Can't say much more than that.

They have some good beer but the food is way to fancy for a this place and over priced too. They recently change the prices on stuff which kinda sucks but eh what can you do.

Been there since 2015 and the consistency of the food is very high standards and quality is out standing. Beer brewed on site with different ales and pilsners. Food is quality and portions are generous.

My partner and I have been here 8 or so few times, and find that it is great at what it focuses on. While the (food) menu hasn't changed over the years, we felt the execution on our last visit was the best yet. Service...More
