I love asking what are the specials. When you go somewhere new and the specials taste this good (Chicken-fried pork) with the pretzel bun, and a white sauce that will make you slap yo' mamma. Their beer is so good. It compliments the menu perfectly. Go there for a beer and some sweet potato fries you will not regret it.... More

I would probably have not walked into this restaurant on my own. It's small, unassuming, and blends in with the other shops on the street. The restaurant itself is clean and family friendly. They boast a large variety of beers ranging from $5 to $10 that are displayed on the wall. Although it wasn't on the menu, we heard another... More

Very nice restaurant /bar right next to Seal Beach California. Our server was very friendly. I had the fish and chips. The fish was fresh and battered to order and the tarter sauce was excellent. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich. The pork was tender and delicious. We had the chips and dip as an appetizer. The chips were... More

Great local place for craft beer & BBQ plus other interesting and unique menu items. The beer selection is always changing and you can check out what's on tap on the "hop cam" on their website. If your lucky they will be pouring some of their award winning beer. They also have wine on tap. The atmosphere is casual friendly.... More

This place is a gem! We found it on our first day in the states to get a quick take out and sit on the beach. We had never tasted anything quite like it so went back to try something else. Which was just as good. We couldn't stay away from this place, we were determined to try everything on... More

Red, Glowing neon sign outside.....my eyes caught the chest-high barstools and the football game on the flat-screen... (NOT my kind of place for a date) HOWEVER...! when we met our other couple ...we stepped inside and mad a left turn to a cozy tavern-style bench seat and a VERY hospitable server....offering us sample-tastes of their home brews and ales...

We'll be back. We had the field greens salad--hold off a bit on the vinaigrette guys. And a pulled pork sandwich on a pretzel bun that was to die for. Only had one of the sides--hope to try another the next time, except the green bean ragout was so good. My wife and I split the meal, yet were stuffed.... More

The menu is a bit different, different kinds of appetizers also. Lots of different kinds of beers, try a sample before ordering we didn't and spent money on beers we didn't like. Best table is in the window, long bar, dining room a bit crowded.

Be prepared for some great eats and wholly delicious craft beers. The bartender absolutely knows his offerings and suggests perfect matchings. Try the Albacore or Brisket burger...you won't be disappointed...oh yeah...add sweet potato fries and fuggetaboutit.
