The Brewhouse isn't the kind of place where you show up in your pressed linen shorts and topsiders with a cashmere sweater draped around your neck. Just don't do it. Tee shirts and cargo shorts rule the day here. Actually, What makes the Brewhouse great is they make really good beer ( many in the Belgian style, usually about 12-14... More

We ate here twice because we enjoyed it so much. The first night I had Salmon and the 2nd night Halibut. Excellent both nights. They have lots of beer choices and the service is very good and friendly. So nice that they are pet friendly on the patio. I will go there again when we visit.

Ate here twice once at dinner and the next day for lunch. Dogs are welcome on the patio - they provide water bowls and dog menus! We had the porterhouse and the sampler platter at dinner, both great choices. The halibut was incredible. For lunch we had prime rib sandwich which was also tasty.

Sat outside on the dog-friendly (they have a dog menu) patio, sipping a brew from their large selection of excellent house-made microbrews. We decided to share our selections. I ordered the Gorgonzola salad with candied walnuts and champaigne vinagraitte & he got the scrumptious Filet Mignon Enchiladas. The sauce is fantastic & I love the corn cakes. It was a... More

This place isn't fancy, but it is a place a lot of locals go because the food here is delicious. It is within walking distance to most hotels and inns by the wharf. It is casual so stop by when you are done at the beach.

The food is especially good for a bar. This was the second time we have been there and will go back again when we are in SB. The menu is very large with everything from sandwiches to seafood, steaks, and pasta. I had the stroganoff and my wife had a grilled artichoke and the parmesan shrimp polenta. Our waitress was...

Read the reviews on this restaurant and bar and thought it was worth a visit. We were not disappointed, good menu with a lively feel about the large bar and restaurant. Staff friendly and attentive and extensive menu to suit family of 4. There is parking on street outside and large list of local beers and lagers as name suggests.... More

This is a nice resturant off of the tourist State State St. area. It was only 0.1 miles from our hotel, so very convenient. The prices were very reasonable and the food was delicious. Don't pay for an overpriced meal when you can get the same quality at The Brewhouse!
