Great Pub

If you like beer, this place has so many to choose from. Then, if you go on Thursday, they have a special menu with things like tacos and nachos for $4.20. We had a great time here, eating the awesome food and playing one of the many board games they had out. My kids loved playing Sorry at a pub!

Stopped here for lunch. Big Sur was packed with visitors on this day. Fortunately we did not have to wait for a table. I ordered one of the specials - a barbecued brisket sandwich with grilled onions. It was HUGE! My traveling companion ordered the panini grilled Caprese sandwich which was very tasty. This place is great.

Great spot for an after hike beer. We enjoyed the patio, it was really quiet and the food was pretty good.

Stopped around lunch time just looking for a little food and found a great menu and beautiful location. The patio is great and even live music. Very relaxed atmosphere.

Stumbled onto this place in 2014 came back in 2015 If you want peaceful and good food this place is a MUST. When you arrive into Big Sur traveling South from Carmel it is actually the 3rd general store/Deli/Bar place to stop. Staff is very nice and the place is CLEAN. The bonus out door seating that is dog friendly.... More

we stopped in after a day of hiking and sight seeing. The service was fast and friendly. There was a nice selection of local craft beers. The food was great. We tried three different menu items and all were great. The fish nacos were fabulous. Prices were really fait too. Stop in for a pit stop......you wont be sorry.

This area of Big Sur is dominated by upscale hotels and restaurants filled with overpriced food. The Taphouse is a welcome change. Very basic inside, the service is quick and the food is great. You can sit inside the Taphouse or weave your way up the back side to a large patio that has great views of the interior mountains.... More

Great food, great prices, great beer selection! We had the tacos (one of each) and the pulled-pork sliders, and we were stuffed. In a place where every other restaurant changes an arm and a leg, it is a great spot for a low key meal at a excellent price. Delicious!

I was able to check this place out a couple months back with my wife. The place itself is really cool inside. Great beer selection and the food was great. We ate upstairs on the patio. Super cool place I could sit there all day and drink beer.

Nice local gathering spot. A variety of beer on tap. A daily menu available. Board games available to play, or watch a sporting event on the two flat screens. Prices more reasonable than the other local places. Bartender, Seth, is ready to pour you a cold one. Recommended if money is a consideration for you, otherwise there are plenty of... More
