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

Overall, lunch here was lackluster in every way and perhaps the reason that there was no one dining here at prime lunch hour. The waitress wasn't helpful with explaining the beers, claimed they are all good. So don't expect to get info on what is hoppy, wheaty, light, etc. and DO NOT expect a small taste to see which beer... More

I have eaten here several times before, and they always have an impressive selection of hand-crafted beers. The food is good too, and you can't go wrong with their LAB Burger — kobe beef, applewood bacon and bleu cheese. The service is fast and friendly.

I love this place. It's hidden away in a strip mall, but don't let that stop you from coming here. They make their own beer on the premises and have 2 dozen more micro-brews on tap. Plus an assortment of bottled beer. Well stock bar and wine list also. The food is top notch. Portions are not too small or... More

The staff was very friendly, the food was good (we had mexican soup, salmon, burgers, dessert). The price indication in Tripadvisor ($$$) seems to be too high, we found the price lower than we expected. Can recommend it !
