Good Times

Great spot for beer or food. The fries were awesome and the steak sandwich was pretty good too. The bartender was cool and provided awesome service.

Overall, good experience. The watermelon beer was light and refreshing. Fish & chips were disappointing. Grilled cheese of the week was great!

The restaurant was very busy but I was able to get a seat at the bar before my pager went off. The service from the bartender was quick and efficient which was good since I was ravenous. The Cajun soup was good and the California burger with a side of the spicy cabbage slaw was delicious. Both beers I had... More

One of the most popular local places in Livermore. They started out in a smaller place and out grew it, and moved to a larger place with more outdoor seating. The food is good, with people coming for miles to eat their burgers. I love their fish and chips with sweet potato fries, ask for some sweet chili sauce. They... More

Downtown Livermore has a lot of choices for food. We chose this one. Nice outdoor patio meant we could bring the dog (many dog-friendly options in Livermore). It was extremely busy, but we only waited a short time for our table. Beer selection includes a great variety of local brews and beers from afar. Beer served quickly, which is always... More

WE live in Livermore so we are frequent customers of First Street Ale House. It's a great gathering place but don't go there for a quite meal. It has sports on TV, outside setting that welcomes pets and a great selection of beers. The food is good, my favorite pulled pork sandwich, the staff is friendly and a fun place... More
