Hopmonk Tavern reminds one of a German beer garden perhaps in Munich.This is a large restaurantwith an equally large outdoor dining area which is covered in the event of very rare incldment weather. Food is quite good & includes comfort & bar type foods. Sonoma ( Philly) cheesesteak sandwiches, pulled pork, mac & cheese, burgers were all great. Many ctaft... More

We sat outside by the firepit with our dogs and fellow dog owners. The beer was excellent! We will return for dinner and music.

Of all the places we ate in the area, this was one of the top two. We had two appetizers (Tacos and Pork Sliders) and they were delicious. Fun place with music but there is a cover charge. Would come back.

We had a group of 7 and they advised a wait of 1/2 hour in the evening in the freezing cold with a baby and 84 year old, when a table was there for the entire wait which they ultimately placed us in..this did not make for a good start to the evening. The server was very pleasant and the... More

On our way in to Guerneville, we found Hopmonks by chance, attracted by the building facade. On first walking in, we thought we might have not made a wise choice, but once seated in the outdoor, covered courtyard, the serendipity of of our choice soon became evident. The surroundings were original and attractive; love the vertical plant sculpture. Many patrons... More

This is one of those places that could be amazing if everyone was properly trained. Great bands and great beer. Service is okay. You get the feeling that everyone there needs to wear many hats and jump in where ever they're needed. Nice menu with seasonal offerings. With a little more care in the kitchen this place could be great.

Great micro brews and burgers, excellent service and the reuben sandwiches are also very good. Night time always has some great music happening and they also have a wonderful courtyard which features music during the dry season.

We were happy to find this restaurant by chance as we wandered around looking for somewhere to eat after a day at Point Reyes. We love beer, and they have it! We also really enjoyed our food, and eating outside under the cover of the porch. We were passing through on a long north to south California trip, so we... More

Hopmonk was a good place to eat, we enjoyed our meals here. It is a beer place in a wine town. Food and service were good, a little too noisy for my taste.
