Good variety of brews.

Same place as Twisted Oaks. Food and brews, small selection of wines. The beer drinkers in our party loved the selection of brews and everyone tried a different one. Walking distance - couple of blocks - from a nearby hotel.

Go here for the beer and eat while you imbibe. Food is decent but not extraordinary, as you might expect at a place dedicated to beer. Wide variety of beer, however, allows virtually every drinker to find one to suit his//her inclination.

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.

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 that flights were an option so I could... More

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
