Not actually a brewing company - but good!

When we first arrived at Cannery Row Brewing Company I was a little disappointed to learn that they are not actually a brewing company...I joked with my wife that this couldn't possibly be the first time someone has made that mistake. If you don't actually brew beer...maybe try a different name... read more

Great Brew Pub. They smoke all their own meat so everything with meat on it is really good. The Chicken Nachos were really yummy and the Shortrib Grilled Cheese was one of the best sandwiches I have had.

The food was good. The service was prompt and polite. I'm not sure it was worth the hype and cost though. It was incredibly trendy and had good atmosphere. It was worth a try, but I don't think we would go back.

We stopped here for the selection of beer. It does not disappoint. We had less than a 10 minute wait and we sat outside. There was a breeze but the heaters were on and it was very nice. Food was great.

The beer choices are amazing. I recommend the flight so you try a variety of beers before deciding on the beer for you. The staff is friendly and the outside fire pits are awesome.

A favorite stop on our visits to Pacific Grove. They have a great beer selection and it is just a nice friendly place to visit.

My family and I have visited CRBC about a half dozen times, and here are a few of our observations. Cons: -Hostesses are reliably indifferent and borderline (if not outright) rude. -Management does not seem to interact much with customers. Pros: +Though it is not a brewery (as other have indicated in their reviews), CRBC has a reliable and robust... More

Lack lustre greeting.....in fact told there were no tables even though we could see empty tables. Bar tender annoyed we sat outside as he had to provide " table service". We were happy to carry our own drinks outside. This place has too many complicated unwritten or advertised "rules" leaving the customer feeling unwelcome.

Our first day in Monterey, we popped in for a late lunch after cycling. Jessa greeted us warmly at the hostess station, and we had a great meal. I wish I could remember our server's name, he really knew beer and my husband enjoyed chatting with him. Meal was delicious, ahi tuna melt, and falafel wrap. Went back the next... More

I have to say that I am hugely disappointed with this restaurant this time. My husband and I frequently visit Monterey and have visited this restaurant each time. Last October we had and incredible visit thanks to Jake and Jarrod...this visit put such a terrible taste in my mouth that we left before even starting. Last night the weather was... More
