Great heated outdoor patio with a bay view. We had chowder and fish tacos that were really good. Disappointed however that at a brewery, the beer was served in plastic cups.

I really liked this place, nice atmosphere but too expensive for me to do very often. We had a nice hamburger lunch.

Great location right at the harbor. Sat at the bar and tried a couple beers. Somewhat disappointed in the beers after hearing so much about the place. Not that they were bad, but not all that exciting. Had the Fish tacos and they were good, but not great. Good serving size and the guacamole & beans were very tasty. Probably... More

We walked over from the Oceanus Hotel for an early dinner. They have a nice menu and the food was very good! Our waiter was extremely helpful and efficient. I would recommend this restaurant.

Love the food and casual atmosphere. Live bands on the weekends and cozy fire pits on the patio. Cheapest glass of wine was $9.00 and was not great. Beer is excellent.

The place looked like it should be fine, so we decided to have it instead of Barbara's FishTrap across the street. Unfortunately it wasn't. I guess the service attitude of the person working the Host counter on the patio should have been our first warning. We walked up to find out about getting a table for two and I had... More

Had a good lunch on a sunny Saturday. We can sit outside with our dog. The brews are very good. The Amber is smooth and balanced, the Kolsch is crisp and refreshing. I've eaten here several times and enjoyed pretty much everything except the fish and chips. I had it twice and it was just super greasy.

This was a quick stop for dinner on the way back to Palo Alto from Santa Cruz - we were looking for a burger, and found some great beers! The burgers were good, nothing crazy to write home about, but tasty all the same, and had plenty of things to add on to them if you like. My favorite treat... More
