We shopped around for about an hour before stumbling upon 66. We were pleasantly surprised to find a microbrew amongst the liquor stores and run-down restaurants. Ordered the grilled cheese and side salad. Awesome results with fresh ingredients. Beer was really tasty and sufficed my cravings. Would return if I stay in the area again. Partner recommends the mac n... More

We ordered the mac & cheese, sliced steak and the Reuben. They were all good & the service was very nice. Not jumping out of my skin however. Their burgers are also good.

Great food and excellent beer. Always packed with locals - but VERY noisy making conversation difficult when the place is crowded, which is often

If you drink beer you would enjoy this more than I did, but the food choices are excellent, original and varied. You can have a nice snack with your beer or enjoy a full and tasty meal. Service was not very friendly at first, but got a bit better by the end of our dinner. Overall very nice, but a... More

My husband loves beer. Me, not so much. But I love a good salad, and who have thunk I'd find the best salads in a pub.

Great small batch beer. I haven't tried the food. But Happy Hour Beer is great. Small assortment of great beers. Also a great location close to BART and a movie theatre.

Being on the road for the last five months, we've experienced a lot of sub par beers posing as craft brews and uninteresting, same-old style fare to go along with them. Not so at this place. It's in a cool spot that's easy to get to, has great service, and an easygoing atmosphere. The beers are sublime and the food... More

I've been going to Elevation 66 (wonderful name) since it opened. It's a go-to kind of place, since it's three doors north of the Rialto El Cerrito Theater, which makes it a reasonable place to go before or after a movie. The food is often inspired; not a huge amount of choice, but what you can get is truly tasty,... More

neighborhood restaurant with good craft beer and excellent food. I have been to this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. Staff is great, food really good, beer excellent ( i personally love the Ester's stout ). I think the menu is widespread so even a vegetarian can eat there.

I am not used to getting really good food at a place that is more known for beer, but this place combines both attributes. My brother, a beer-lover from out of town, tried it on a visit and clued me in about the wonderful food available as well. I have enjoyed every dish I've ordered here.
