The beer, the food, and fortunately we got a very nice waitress too. I think one of the better ones. And it had atmosphere. The music was a little loud for my tastes, but still, I would go back.

We were wondering around Haight Ashbury and decided we needed something to eat, and Magnolia was the first place to pop up on Google for "brewery near me" It was a win! We walked in, and it was packed. We managed to squeeze ourselves in at the bar. The bartender was quick to greet us and was super friendly. We... More

Very disappointed. Place was recommended by a friend, so we took a bus to have a drink there. When we asked if a table was available, the waitress was extremely rude to us and gave us attitude ("It will be when I've cleaned it!", rolling her eyes -- and not in a friendly tone, believe me). Then she said that... More

Saturday night 5:30, they were out of ribs. Place is a bbq joint, and all they have is dry chopped pork, hard chicken and dry as hell potato salad and mac/cheese. AND, the lady taking orders had some serious attitude! Sorry I walked in the door. Lots of other options around Dogpatch, so stay away from here. BBQ, my butt!

We were given heads up on this place by staff at Mikkelers. We're sure glad we took it and made effort to get here. Excellent selection of craft & cask ale in variety of styles with ones we had in good condition. Food - we had burger with fries and salad plus side of beans and chard. Burger excellently served...

We made a special trip to eat here based on reviews. So, expectations were high. I did not feel the beer was flavorful compared to other brew pubs. My kids had burgers which we excellent. The adults had the homemade "bratwurst " which tasted like chorizo. Spicy. It was not even the right color! Sauerkraut was awful. We were expecting... More

I stopped in to have a beer and a quick bite to eat. The beer was good, handcrafted. The food, vomit! I even asked the bar tender before I ordered the fish and chips if it was super greasy or not. He said it wasn't greasy at all. It came out and one bite I had to have it taken... More

We wanted to have a beer after a though day of being roped from our passports and all. Did not have an id on me, but showed a scan of my passport to the lady bartender. "No" she said. Can't believe it; I'm 31 years old and show an passport scan. Even tried to convince her by showing the police... More

We were visiting Haight Ashbury and stopped for lunch here at the Magnolia Pub & Brewery. It's great. Very good food at a reasonable price and excellent beer. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Snifters: Great selection from this microbrewery that feeds the pub it's selection of fantastic local style beers, and international styled beers. The Kolsch (Cologne, Germany style) was unbelievable. Light and malty and superbly fresh and quenching. Snacks: huge portion of fries that were tasty, and a delicious scotch egg that had a salty fatty sausage coating and a lovely rich... More

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighborhood Profile
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighborhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
