we stumbled upon this, as we where in the area. We where hungry and thirsty. It's kind of hard to find as it is in the back. We had some really good comfort food and decent beer. I will definitely go back next time I'm in the area.

We came across this place last minute, when our first dining option didn't work out, and I am so glad we did! It was a great experience. The atmosphere was warm and fun. It was a Saturday night, so it was pretty packed, but it wasn't overwhelming. The staff was very helpful and nice. It was Beer Week, so they... More

My family and I stopped by here in early November for dinner, and the place was packed-- very busy on a Saturday night, which was a great sign. When we were seated, we were not disappointed-- the selection of beers was outstanding, and the food was very good. Do NOT miss the macaroni and cheese-- rich and indulgent and worth... More

Sublime is an informal place that serves great craft beers, both from fantastic local breweries and others further away. Menu is simple but has many tasty healthy choices.

We enjoyed it so much that we brought the kids the next time. There is so much variety for everyone, including the beer. The Mac n cheese, hamburgers, fish n chips, salads were to die for. Will definitely go back to try more of the menu. It can get a little loud, but I'm sure it would be fun to... More

I really like this establishment. The beer choices are excellent, and they change regularly, which can be good or not so good, depending on your tastes. I like the change because it give me an opportunity to drink beers I normally might not. On the other hand, I drink Ballast Point Sculpin 7 out of 10 times I go there.... More

Granted, we knew nothing about this place, except our favorite restaurant around the corner was closed at this hour. We did not know where else to go. This is our first and last time here! The pizza was very overpriced--$1.25 for each veggie on top of the base cheese pizza. The dough was soggy and there weren't enough extras on... More

Heard some good things about the place so we went for dinner. It ok nothing special. Good place for younger crowd. Picnic benches were used for most of the seating. Food was pretty good was not in the mood for a beer. My wife ordered a beer she didn't think it was very good and ordered something else. More of... More
