“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

French onion soup was sweet tasting, but still good. Beer cheese soup had no beer flavor at all. Shepard pie was blah. Mac and cheese was very bland. Nachos were good with the chili on it. Poor service for a quiet Sunday evening. Waited too long for drink refills...after 15 minutes, bartender finally noticed beer was empty and refilled. Waiter never noticed. Overall, too many good places to go.

“Hearty Plates, Vegan Friendly, Open for Breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Went here when some "beef and beer" friends came to visit. Food and beer did not disappoint in quality or quantity. Innovative variations on burgers accompany a variety of intriguing menu items, mostly sandwiches and salads. Our group enjoyed veggie burger, beef "Diablo" burger, and Mediterranean lamb burger. Also offer nice appetizers including a pita/veggie/hummus plate. We enjoyed a pitcher of Plankwalker Ale. A bit pricey, but really good location on Todos Santos square. Great for people watching, taking children to play, attending farmers market or free concerts/events. Main room can be noisy, but there is a small semi-enclosed room that offers some quiet. Window-side and outdoor dining is nice.
I was surprised to see they serve breakfast on the weekend, which is different for a brew pub. I heard from other diners that the Eggs Benedict is fantastic. Will be back to give that a try!

“This is a Good Dining Spot in Concord and a Good Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

This restaurant has approximately a hundred seats spit between bar and restaurant, Outdoor
Seating available. This is both a locals hangout but a number corporate people come in for
Lunch and often back for Dinner. The Food is Casual but alot! The Steak Sandwich is enough for two. The Plate Overflows with French Fries and very few go home hungry! Great place for Lunch or Dinner and moderate in it's Price. You will enjoy the meal and the staff are very personable and efficient. Location is 2151 Salvio St. in downtown Concord facing Todos Santos Plaza (the Main Square) Open Seven Days and nights. (925) 6914253 (It gets loud in the evening!) Food to go also.

“local brewery with lots of other California beers too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Has an old english pub style feel to it. If you an appreciation for microbrew's this is a must see place if you are in the area. Pub style food but you come here for the beer! All types: ales, pale ales, IPA, stout, etc. and most all are regional to northen california.

“Been There a Bunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Always a good variety of beers on tap - their own and outside brands. Food better than average for pub fare and good variety. Outside dining looks onto the plaza (if you are early and lucky enough to get a table)
