Food is great. Service is great. Beer is great. It's very laid back, but perfect for going out to beer with friends, double date, or just a family meal. All the servers I've had are very nice and accommodating. Plenty of TVs for sports. Livermore is lucky to have them here!

We always go for brunch with the family for birthdays. This place gets insanely busy so keep that in mind. With that said, there is great shopping nearby while you wait. Good pub/bar food during other times. Never had a bad meal.

We live in the Monterey Bay area and were heading to Sonoma for the weekend. We usually go via San Francisco but decided to go via the east bay and stop for beer tasting at Altamont Beer Works and then lunch at First Street Ale House. Downtown Livermore has lots of restaurants and this was a fun stop with a... More

Always busy, plenty of tables. Basically bar food. If you're looking for something without a lot of calories, you won't find it here. Many people love it. It is busy everyday, all day; but plenty big enough to handle the crowds.

This place is always packed and often a long wait but the food is great and wide selection of beer and a game always on the big screen. The food is great and I especially like the tootsie roll pop that comes with it

One of the best hamburgers I've ever had. Not a bunch of extras, just a GREAT tasting burger. Instead of fries, house-made tortilla chips and salsa. Staff who hustles even when the crowd is large and noisy. It's been in Livermore for a long time, and it keeps improving.

Had a superb brunch with a group of thirteen we all had the brunch buffet and we could not have been more pleased. Attentive service. Very nice variety of offering, from Mexican to traditional American. Made to order omelettes . Brew house atmosphere very appealing. Did enjoy a Sour Ale with breakfast, impressive variety of beers on tap. Also restaurant... More

After a fun, fairly liquid time the night before, I came here for breakfast. The food is good, the service fast, and the atmosphere just right for a hearty breakfast. But, oh man, it was just a little too noisy for me. YMMV
