“One word: Hef”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

They don't always have it, but their Hefeweisen is the best there is. The food is really good too. I think I had the best burger I've every had here.

“OK food overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Amazing how busy this place was. The service was terrible, the food wasn't bad, but it wasn't nearly worth what they charge. Not impressed

“Lots of good restaurants in the area, but not this one.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We used to live in the area several years ago and this restaurant was new, creative, and exciting. So, we were really disappointed when we visited the area and ate here. When we arrived, shortly after noon, on a Saturday, there were only a few tables occupied. However, the hostess made a deal out of us having to wait to be seated. She took us to a table, but we decided that we had rather have a booth. Even though there were many, many booths open, she made a deal about us going back to wait once again before she would seat us. Service was OK, but not overly friendly. The food was the real negative. One of us had a Caesar salad. Now we were not expecting a huge salad for $8, but this salad was tiny, very tiny. One of us had the seafood pasta and what a disappointment. Again, a very small dish for $17. Four mussels and some indescribable seafood parts in a small portion of pasta. Very disappointing. This fish tacos were a little better, but nothing distinctive. There are a lot of good and even great restaurants in the area. I recommend that you search one of them out and avoid LGB.

“Even a plain burger is good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Had a couple of different brews and both were exceptional. The atmosphere is wonderful but the food is even better. Great bread and oil dip, great salads, and the burger is out of sight. (Thats Good) we will come back when in the area.

“I really love this place and I'm not a beer drinker”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Their wine list and wines by the glass are frankly a delight and a surprise in a "brew pub". Food is really good, recently underwent a menu revision and they tightened things up -- more consistent and some good new dishes. Hamburger is a standout here as is the chicken in lettuce cups. The yellowtail sashimi dish also good. Pizzas so so in my opinion, crust not that great, Vegetarian options which are actually tasty.
