This casual restaurant was a surprising find for this family. The beer is home-brewed and great, and when I couldn't decide which one to order, the server brought small glasses of several for me to try for free! (I chose the Redwood Ale, which is just fabulous.) Then on to the food--ribs were excellent; wife had the Kings Pie which... More

I live in boulder creek and I love this place. They have great food and local craft beer. The service can be spotty but the food and beer never disappoint. If you are in the area you should stop on in for a bite and nice cold beer. My favorites are the avocado fries, pesto chicken sandwich and onion rings.... More

The beers here are top notch and home brewed. There is a full bar but mostly I come for the food. They always have a range of specials and their main menu is quite good. They have had a new head chef there for a few years who has really made a difference in the quality of the food and... More

This little restaurant/cafe/brewery/bar/pub has some of the best food in a 100 mile radius. Everything is made from scratch. The soups are amazing, the Kings Pie can only be surpassed by going to Scotland, and the microbrewed beers are rich, flavorful and diverse. The people are always friendly (I have been there dozens of times) and the atmosphere is originally... More

Boulder Creek Brewery & Cafe is a brewpub and restaurant serving mostly local brews in addition to what's made in-house. It's casual and friendly and you can come as you are, which is what everyone does in this "mountain" community in ancient redwood forest, 30 minutes north of Santa Cruz. Food is standard pub fare - burgers, fried onion rings,... More

Stopped here on a hot evening in July, on a return trip to our campground. The 007 IPA was fabulous. This is coming from someone that comes from an area with some of the best IPA's in the country. (Russian River Brewery & Lagunitas to name a few.) I also enjoyed my burger with mushrooms and avocado. My only complaint... More

We were recently at the BC Brewery and had some good beer and burgers. They were out of the IPAs (but it was Father's Day). The service is good but it does take a while to get your food. Everything is fresh. I like the meat cooked well, but I think next time I will ask for medium because it... More

While staying at the Redwood Resort, we went into town for a meal. Great choice! The servers were friendly, polite and helpful with our appetizer choice (Deep Fried Avocado..YUM!) and beer selection (Dragon's Breath, delicious..and a taster of a dark, coconut infused beer). Between the Dragon's Breath and the avocados, I barely at my burger (it made for a tasty... More

True, we did not have a lot of eateries to choose from, but the combination of on site brew and a fast, delicious meal would have made this perfect just about anywhere. At one point I said, can I take this restaurant home with me - and I meant it. There were so many options that I needed advice from... More

Excellent beers brewed right on the spot. They always have something new and interesting to try. Service is fast, efficient, and friendly, the food is very good, and the menu is varied with even a good selection of vegetarian and vegan choices. They have my favorite garden burgers in the San Lorenzo Valley, and my husband says the same for... More
