We have been here a few times, and I think overall we have had too many misses here to return. The last few times we have been, something has been wrong with our meal whether it was prepared incorrectly (got a well done burger when ordered medium) or something wasn't included that should have been. I do have to credit... More

The beer was very good. The food is like what you would find anywhere else. You have the fried appetizers, fried entrees, salads and pastas. I'm not saying it was bad, just nothing stood out as outstanding. I would come back again to try the rest of the beer I didn't get to taste.

We discovered this restaurant during a quick exploration of places near our hotel and chose it based on the bustle of diners in the outside patio areas. A quick look at the menu and the good impression of the hostess helped us decide to pick it for dinner. At 7pm, there was a 10-15 min. wait on a Tuesday night.... More

I go there often for lunch and find that I get great service and can watch any number of sporting events on their multiple TV's. Their many home brews are very fun to try out as they bring out new ones, although they keep the old favorites. The food is a bit heavy for my taste but is always good.... More

We stopped here for a quick dinner and it was full of local families and college kids from nearby UCSB. My chicken pot pie was actually very good and I would have it again. My wife's meat loaf was good - it had peppers in it which made it spicy...thought that was an odd touch but she seemed to like... More

The service here is horrible. I walked up to the bar to order a drink and before I could the bartender already gave me a negivite attitude as I had interrupted her from her two friends sitting at the bar. I came here on vacation from out of state and she wanted a second ID on top of my state... More

We went for happy hour and they had good specials on their craft beers! They had a few different IPAs to try, and I would recommend trying the beer flight! You can sample 6 beers, all of which were delicious. We did the pizza & nachos on the happy hour menu. Wasn't too impressed with the pizza, but the nachos... More

My friends and I went at 3:30 for Happy Hour after work, midweek. Wow, I feel that we were totally discriminated against because we didn't fit the demographics for the area; in other words we weren't college students or young working people. First of all, we were 5 professional women aged 35, 55, 58,60 and 66. The waitress decided we... More
