Greasy heavy non interesting Bar food. Their presentation might be OK but the food was boring. Music also is just OK... not so much the talent that comes thru there. I've seen lots of those shows else where and they have been fantastic experiences. I will use Sweetwater in Mill Valley as my bench mark. Although Hop Munk Has all... More

The Fish & Chips was amazing, fresh fish that wasn't greasy and crispy potatoes done perfectly. It's got a lot of nooks and crannies inside and out for seating options, really good service and nice, casual elegant vibe. Beach goers and honeymooners alike. Looks like it would be really pretty and fun to attend live music events here, with lights... More

HopMonk is a lovely local watering hole and eating establishment. They also have live music (which we have not attended.) A good variety of food....good tasting...friendly staff. Inside can be noisy and a bit hot. Outside, they have tables and chairs and picnic type of tables and benches. They were very accommodating when I said I could not sit on... More

Kind of lacking ambience for a Beer Garden. Wines are pricey, beers were pretty good and more reasonable. We had the taco sampler - not bad, the Mac and cheese, very bland and the calamari which was over breaded, over fried and had a bunch of non calamari things mixed in like green onions and lemon slices which weren't bad...

Casual, and walkable, a live music venue with delicious food right in town. Check out the enclosed outdoor area which is great to enjoy with a family. They also have a wide variety of beer.

Very popular meeting place for locals. At night they usually have a band, but if you prefer more quiet, visit in the afternoon or early evening. Beside the various kind of beer, they also serve other beverages and they have pretty good food, too. My favorite is their amazing kale salad.

Have stopped in here three times now for an "after the hike" (Joe Rodota Trail) meal with friends. The appetizer plates are large and good. We usually make a meal of shared appetizers.The cheese and fresh fruit plate is enormous. The fries are perfect. The price is reasonable. The outdoor seating is a real plus.
