Hits the spot for a burger and good beer selection

I stopped here for a quick bite and a beer. They had a pretty good variety of food - basically good quality gastro-pub/bistro with an emphasis on burgers in a trendy, darkish (as opposed to a bright potentially loud/noisy sports bar) sports bar environment. Good beer selection too and it was great... read more

We ate there twice, once lunch with family and another time dinner just the two of us. The selection of beers is good, and the ones suggested approved with us nicely. The food was also very good. If we end up in Agoura Hills again, we will surely eat there again.

Called in here as we were staying at a nearby hotel. Just ad drinks and one of our party had a meal. It looked delicious and he really enjoyed it. The beer selection was excellent and staff were helpful in helping you choose. I think this place is now called twisted oak - or similar!!! Liked the place and looking... More

There were very few people in the pub the 3 nights we were at the hotel. We only went to the pub twice, but with different bartenders. My wife and I orders the same two drinks each night, but were charged two different prices. No big amount, about $4 more the second time, but I also received a smaller amount... More

This place is a great little find and the food is very good. What looks like a typical bar you would find in any other parts of the States, this is far from it. It has just been refurbished and the place looks good. I would recommend a visit if you were in the area.

Poor service..no one even came back to see if we had everything (we didn't)....had to "hunt down" someone to re-order drinks (at one point hubby even had to go up to the bar to order)..mediocre food for the prices. Loud! Couldn't even have a conversation with those at our table.

The ambience in the main dining room needs a little warmth but the food and the beer are very good. I had risotto with lobster and from the description, you would not be able to guess how it was going to taste. There were dollips of mustard grains on it and it was delicious. My boyfriend had short ribs with... More

Visited early afternoon for a business meeting and get together with coworkers. The pub was empty so we were immediately served by Matt. He was very attentive and helped us navigate the extensive beer menu. We ordered beer samplers, each designed for each. We orded appetizers from the happy hour menu and enjoyed them all. This is a great place... More

Outstanding!!! My first day in CA, picked up from the airport and headed to The Lab Brewing Co. It's a fav of my CA family. Upon entering, the first thing you smell is the hops- fresh brew! Delightful to the nose. We had great service, with very helpful suggestions on food and drinks. The bartender was very knowledgeable. Asking our... More
