A vast and well stocked bar that includes hand crafted cocktails in addition to draft and bottle beers, and select wines. Be sure to participate in the occasional whole bar sing-alongs, or cheer the bartenders on as they prepare exotic flaming drinks and smash bottles behind the bar. Lots of LCD screens when there is a sporting event or Sharks game - or just digital flames all around late at night. Open from 11AM until 2AM weekdays with happy hour from 3pm to 7pm.

The pork belly sliders were delicious and a nice introduction to brussel sprouts. A very easy walk from the SAP center or convenient public parking with restaurant validation. Service was great and enjoyable atmosphere for conversation and relaxation.

Located in the heart of the San Pedro. Small on the outside but definitely fills the space and patrons well. Host, wait, and bar staff are prompt with friendly acknowledgement. Service is offered efficiently from orders to delivery. Food comes out hot and extremely efficiently. Wait for food was rare. Portion sizes are filling and flavorful. Good rotating craft beer...

They don't have it. I order a main. They don't have it. After the second occurrence I get concerned about how... More

Stopped in for an early dinner. Good but not huge selection of beer. The beer menu hits all the major points, from Pilsners to Stouts. They seem to push the cocktail menu pretty hard, but didn't try any of those. Got some wings and mac and cheese. Both were outstanding. The use a Mediterranean spice rub on the wings and... More

I have been impressed by the quality of the food you can get here, it really lives up being called a gastropub. Add a good selection of craft beer to your food pairing and you get a meal that has kept me coming back.

I did not like this place one bit and i hate how much the prices are. One thing though, sitting outside was a great experience. I tried to order the drinks and they were as bad as it gets especially the cosmo cocktail....Not the best... About the food, it was great so i cannot complain. The location is also excellent,...

Had to try the GastroPub for a second time to ensure it wasn't a fluke. Beet tartare and their scrumptuous wings and our son had a steak. Normally, I don't order wings, but these were tossed in a coriander/chipotle seasoning -- not greasy or overly sauced. We had to order a second appetizer! The service was excellent, attentive and clever.... More
