Good food and beer

Dinner her past Wednesday nite. Nice selection of local beers on tap as well as some local wines. Food was good. Try the hot and sweet buffalo wings- they are pretty good.

We have been here a few times and everything is OK. Nothing really special or unique. Good place to watch the game and sample a beer or two...

This is a brew pub, but the food was good, we had burgers. They have seating inside and outside, nice industrial feel in downtown Martinez. I would come again for the beer and a burger. Price is a moderate. recommended. This is a good place to come for beer on tap, as they have lots.

Well worth the trip regardless of where you are located. Jim Blair and his staff has done an amazing job! Such a wonderful place to visit alone, with a family or with friends. Plenty of parking too.

We went to the Creek Monkey Tap Room for the first time. This historic building in Martinez had been the site of a favorite Italian restaurant that is no longer in business. So the anticipation of dining again at a favorite location was high. It was a Tuesday evening and there was an open mike music fest outside on the... More

Nice tap house with good selection of beers. Terrible fish and chips three small pieces of fish with thick soggy breading and soggy fries. It is too bad because I really wanted to like this place.

A group of old friends decided to meet for an early dinner in Martinez since we are homed all over the greater San Francisco Bay Area and one has a particularly long drive. We chose the Creek Monkey Tap House, which is about as quaint as its name. It is located on Escobar Street, right in downtown Martinez, near both... More

The food totally sucks. Frozen and pre packaged stuff. Great selection of beer but they wouldn't let me purchase a bottle of wine. Had to do by the glass. Not good dude.

Not being a drinker I cannot comment on their drinks but it seems they offer tons of beers. Their food is typical bar food. They do have a vegetarian option, which is nice. Try their fried Oreos for dessert. Very tasty.

Great beer selection (lots of beers, although not a big selection of lager-type beers) and good eats. Friendly staff. The burgers and appetizers are all good!
