A bit on the pricey side. Great view of the harbor. Happy hour from 11:30 to 18 h. A great place to relax.

The H.M.B. brewing Company catered the Memorial for my father. Staff excellent, Food TOP. Also went there a few times to eat. In my opinion the best clam chowder on the coastside!

Nice sunny afternoon in peninsula 74 and sunny we decided to take the convertible out and take a drive to HMB. In less than 20 minutes the temp shows 57 and the fog is rolling in.

The food was very good and hot. The service was excellent and speedy. My wife had the clam chowder and love it. The beer was so-so. I had the Porter and the chocolate flavor completely overwhelmed the taste of the beer. The brown ale was average with very little body. The food does make up for it. It has a... More

I would like to give them 4 stars but they are solid 3. Good variety of food on the menu and the beer is pretty good, not the best but consistent and good. If you come on a sunny day they have a nice patio you can sit out on. Bring a light jacket or sweater as you never know... More

We headed down on a sunny Feb Sunday and the patio looked so inviting we decided to wait an hour to eat. Their estimate was right on the money and we explored the marina in the hour we had to kill. (Note by 2pm they were quoting people a 2 hour wait!). The Ahi poke and pineapple salsa was great.... More
