Visited this great little bar with my wife whilst on honeymoon. My wife had a Crispin cider which was organic and made with Honey instead of sugar which was very tasty and I had a local California Pilsner which was refreshing too. We both order a latish dinner approx 21:00 and the menu was very basic, 2 different burgers, chicken... More

Today's lunch was a perfect cheeseburger with fries the wife was willing to steal. Arugula salad was fantastic as well. Great service and an outstanding bar.

This place is close to the beach and offers a fantastic craft beer selection along with basic but very satisfying menu items. Parking can be an issue but there are many boutique hotels in the neighborhood that are easy walking difference - a preferable choice if you intend to try any number of their stronger beers.

This place has is all, from a wide variety of beers to amazing wings and pizza. Did I mention its a few steps away from the pier? The service is the only slight downfall, the bartender/waiter was a little slow, but otherwise this place is great. We brought our family who was visiting from Mexico, they were in the mood... More

Lots of beers on tap as well as in bottles to choose from. The selection also changes regularly. We got the 'special' pizza. Everything you'd want for sure. Taste was perfect!! It was so large we ate some there and took the rest home to become another meal. Close to Funk Zone on State St.

The wings and burgers are amazing here. The service is decent, which is why they only got 4 out of 5. Stop by if you are in the area, open late.

If it's busy, give it a miss. No complaints about either the burgers or the beer. However, there was a group in and, having ordered we had to wait for well over an hour for the food to arrive. All they needed to do was say we might need to wait an hour and we could so easily have moved... More

The beer was great! The atmosphere was fun! We sat at the bar and I must say the bartender was totally slammed since right after we came in a group doing a pub crawl came in, but she handled things great. We had a wonderful time.
