Tasty & Hoppy

Very tasty food and a terrific selection of unique beers. Especially liked the Acai berry beer we tasted. Will definitely be stopping there again next we drive through the area!

We were so impressed with our waitresses service. Especially, seeing all the Cal Fire people who are fighting the many California fires being served. We all had hamburgers and thought perfectly cooked to our liking. Tried some of the local beer.

We arrived late in the evening, shortly before the kitchen was closing. Ok though, because we only wanted to sample some of the beers and perhaps get a dessert. Our server, Sian, was very friendly and suggested beers for us after we described what we liked. After some samples, I ended up getting a pint of the Ravens Eye Imperial... More

We stopped in for a late dinner heading north and had an excellent "tri-tips" sandwich ( popular cut of meat up here that I'd never heard of; get it with BBQ sauce and the Cajun mayonnaise) and a local draft. Good chicken and veggie soup. Prompt service.

It's location was ideal, as we are staying at the rv park just around the corner. We loved the rustic unique setting, fits the... More

So we visit this place every year or so as we stay at the RV park around the corner overnight. Very busy and popular if you want to drink beer. Food was not so good to good. Started with seafood stuffed mushrooms. Where was the seafood? Tasted like ground mushrooms stuffed into mushrooms. I had the fish and chips because... More

Terrible experience! You walk in and there are peanut shells all over the floor...I know some people may like that, but I think it's messy and unattractive. We were convinced to sit outside and the service was awful!!! We waited in the cold for a long time for a waiter. Beer took forever to get. Ordered right away, catching on... More

Beer and wine only - not a full bar. This pub fits the bill in most ways. Our service was good. The food was good to pretty good. The ribs were tasty and ample. I can't eat that much anymore. A bit noisy for conversation.
