The menu wasn't all that exciting and though my chicken sandwich was good, it's not a restaurant that i feel any need to return to. But if you like your beer, this might be the place for you.

Creek Monkey is the closest thing we have to a local Pub. They an excellent variety of beer from light ales to heavy stouts including seasonal selections. They source beers from local and regional producers and there always seems to be something new. Their food is equally terrific. Their menu has all the standards you'd expect in a Pub and... More

I have been here maybe 15 times since it opened. I really do like this place and I keep coming back. The good: If you want to get down with an ever rotating selection of (often hyper local) Bay Area beers in a funky old house with great outdoor seating, this is the spot. The bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable... More

I have been here several times and it has a great patio which keeps bringing me back. Beer selection is good and the food is fine - not fine dining but it serves the purpose and when you want fries with your beer then this is the place. Service can be spotty so you have to make sure to get... More

If you like beer in small glasses, this spot is for you. The food is barely acceptable. Will never go back!

In my ratings 3=meets expectations. 4=exceeds, 5= blown away. I rarely give 5. Expectations are based on experience with similar establishments at similar price point. I've been here maybe a dozen times since it opened and I can finally recommend this place wholeheartedly. Beer selection has always been good, with a heavy emphasis on fairly local stuff. They're serving their... More

Went with my husband and daughters to sample some unique beers with appetizers. Beer and food were great a little pricey to other places but worth it to go.
