Small place but looks very cozy. Only had beer, which was good. Didn't try any of their food. Was there late on a Monday night and place was winding down quickly.

My daughter and I wanted a beer and a bowl of chowder for lunch but waddled out of the restaurant full and very content. The delicious bowl of chowder was generous and incredibly filling. We washed it down with the brewery's Belgium golden ale which complimented the chowder perfectly. Upon the recommendation of the waitress, we tried the broiled artichokes... More

Dungeness crab roll ***** We loved it! Lots of fresh unadulterated crab meat, lettuce & tomato, sauce on the side. Great beers on tap, nice wine list, and fabulous outdoor dining with delightful coastal view.

Great bar with usually fun live music every weekend - dancing or enjoy the night air around the fire pit with a fine brew or wine.

We ate outside and it was a perfect day. Sunny and beautiful. If you like beer, the beer flights are a lot of fun & very tasty. I had a glass of wine, very nice. The menu has a good variety. I had the steak chilaquiles. It was delicious. Can't wait to go back!

Fine if you are looking for a brew co experience. Not great if you are looking for quality cuisine. Bar fried bites or huge helpings is what you will find. Stick to visiting strictly for drinks and music and late night fries if you are hungry.

One of my favorite dishes here is the fish tacos, I choose to have the fish grilled instead of fried! At our most recent visit my father had the fish and chips which is served in a basket; I think it is a little difficult to eat with the fish on top of the French fries in a smallish basket... More

Nice outdoor setting among other restaurants and shops. They do have indoor seating as well. Lots of craft beers- sampled several. Liked the Kolsch. Also had the Beer Brat Pops, which were perfect with the beer. They were brats that had been sliced into 3-4 sections and then battered and fried like corndogs. Came with a mustard sauce. Really quite... More
