Terrific, off-the-beaten-path, locals pub. Love the many military signs, etc. reflecting the proximity of this pub to The Presidio of Monterey. Burgers a bit above average, the Guinness just right and the ambiance is terrific with a blend of local folk and language students from...More

I like the locale, and the folks there could not be nicer. Great burgers. However, the trash on the floor when I've been (twice) and the stench of stale beer are definite negatives for me and my guests.

Excellent location for a quick bite. The menu is basically American cuisine with few exceptions. The bar is real good with draft and bottled bear. Open mostly lunch and evenings, i think. Service is good with friendly crew.

Feels like a local gathering place offering bar food and all you can eat specials on certain days, friendly locals and a wonderful bartender/waitress. We had burgers and enjoyed every bite! The french fries are cooked to perfection, crisp on the outside with great flavor,...More
