I ordered a pizza. It cost $13. I asked myself, is this is a frozen pizza? I should not have to ask myself that question. Service was spotty, even though it was not that busy. The beer was not bad, but there are better options. This is more of a restaurant than a bar. Prices for beer were very good,... More

Something for everyone on menu. Very accommodating staff with understanding of children's wants. Fast service as we wanted to catch a movie afterwards

Well maybe not that good, but the beer selection was very good, and the happy hour pitcher was $10. Outdoor dining allows for pets. The happy hour food was average, however. The hostess could use training from charm school. The food server was outstanding, and made up for her attitude. We will definitely be back!!

We stopped here on way through town for late dinner. Everyone was pleasant and attentive. We had the Chicken Pot Pie which was really good. It's a local hangout and brewery with good food. If in the area I'd suggest it as a place to stop and eat.

4 of us went here on a Sunday night. Great assortment of seasonal beers, photo attached. The bowl of chili is pretty big and a good value at $9. Nice outdoor seating , lots of TVs with sports

Been coming here many times, and can always count on a great cocktail and beer choices. Food is tasty, from the flatbreads to appys, and many different food items.Would have to say the best fried pickles are here. Great fish tacos except for one time, but everyone is always happy with the food and happy hour is a good deal.... More

HBC has become our "go to" place since we had our daughter. It's often crowded so there's less stress about noise our girl might make 😝 My husband loves all the IPAs and I'm a huge fan of their homemade lemonade (as is our daughter). Everything I've eaten has been delicious and I love trying specials. HBC is very family-friendly,... More

Pretty standard Brew Pub fare. Didn't drink the beer here, but ate here on numerous occasions over the course of my 18 month assignment to Goleta. Food plentiful and well prepared. Service adequate. Did Take Away often as well and things well packed with plastic flatware, etc. Check them out.

The Hubby and I stopped here while traveling. We ordered the Cobb salad and a pizza and shared both. It was delicious! The salad was made with fresh greens and plenty of good stuff. Avocado and chicken and a ton of bacon! The roasted mushroom pizza was cheesy and garlicky and scrumptious. I can't wait to come back to this... More

I occasionally eat here for business lunches. The food is interesting and mostly good, but it can be inconsistent. The service is fine, nothing outstanding. The indoor seating is really loud though, so I prefer the outdoor seating.
