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!

The reason that I was reluctant to submit a review is that I didn't want too many tourists discovering this absolute gem! The food is plentiful, fresh, prepared quickly and served with a sunny smile! The drink is plentiful and the bar staff are willing to discuss the extensive range of beers and spirits and offer samples before buying. The... More

We have been here several times and have always enjoyed our meal. This time we had the vegetarian enchiladas and salmon salad. Both were excellent. They have an excellent beer selection. If don’t like beer try the key lime martini. It was delicious. Great service and friendly staff.

Good beer of all styles. We are not fans of the ultra hoppy beer that's trendy now so it was nice to find a local brewery that has built a pilsner and a red ale that we could enjoy. For you hops fans there are also plenty of choices. The food was good to great bar grub. Friendly local crowd... More

It's an unimposing place, which is much bigger inside than it looks and was busy on the (holiday weekend) Sunday evening we visited. It's away from the beach so had a more locals feel to it. We sat at a table in the bar area, which wasn't as noisy as the main restaurant. There was a good choice of drinks... More

We are dog owners and normally stay at a nearby motel within easy walking distance of the Brewhouse. We really appreciate the option of being able to bring our dogs along when we just want to relax, chat with our neighbors and have a beer or two before ordering our meals. Everything we have ever ordered has been good and... More
