We arrived without a booking but that was not a problem. Waitress was pleasant but a little overworked and busy. I had the Caesar salad which was a little disappointing but the other meals were good. Deserts - Crete brûlée was very nice. Obviously beer is a focus but I don't drink beer. My colleagues enjoyed the local cider. They... More

The vast variety of beer keeps us coming here. Their calamari appetizer is one of my top favorites. The food is hit and miss sometimes. One of our favorites was the hangar steak but they took it off the menu.. boo!

Downtown Mountain View is super quaint and everything you expect from small CA city. Being from out of state we didn't realize a local NHL team was playing in the playoffs and a game was in progress when we arrived. We had a group 7 was seated right away and they were patient while we waited for the rest of... More

I've been coming to Tied House for years. Their staff is incredibly friendly, always willing to accommodate. I'm recently gluten/dairy/grain/nightshade free (ie AIP Paleo). It's a pain in the butt to eat out, but the staff at the Tied House have put together a gluten free menu, offer GF cider and wine, and never complain about leaving stuff off a... More

Whether you're going for the beers or the food, this is a trusted location for both. Have been going for 20+ years, and I'm known for being picky. So if you can find a place to park then this is the right place to go.

They use to be good long time ago. Food quality changed and I stop going there. Beers are ok but not too shabby. There are better places to go for beer and appetizer

I visited here with a local business colleague who briefed me on the history of the place and that it had been a stomping ground for a long time. Be that as it may, my experience here was actually quite unremarkable, with even basic things fumbled over the course of the evening. On two separate occasions, the beer served to... More

You get here great burgers and tasty beers brewed "on-site". THX to TripAdvisor guiding us here. We've been here during the week, not having a problem to get a seat for six people. Definitly a must-visit when coming to the valley as guest.

Great place to eat. Excellent home brew beers, some very hoppy! Good pub grub foods, which is always wonderful.
