Had to meet with family in a short notice. They acommodated us right away. I recommended the nachos for starter and everyone loved it. We did order other food which were on the appetizer/starter list and my family were all happy. Overall, everyone was full and satisfied about the food, the service and the price, not to mention that it... More

Went here with a bunch of friends, they seemed to like the beer (I'm not a beer guy). Had Nachos, Wings and Fish and Chips. Nachos were very good, toppings to chip ratio was excellent. Wings were tasty (but I think they came from mini-chickens). Fish and Chips also tasty but the breading to fish ratio was a little off,... More

Enjoyed good sandwiches with excellent craft beers, but could barely hear ourselves across the table. Lots of families with children added to the noise. Service was also good. Located in an old vintage house and was difficult to find if you don't know Martinez. Excellent website to study the menu ahead of time. Only disappointment were the deep friend "ball"... More

Try to get here at least monthly to see what new beers they are tapping. The food is standard pub grub, but never disappoints. Ambience runs from laid-back to frenetic depending on day and time. They brew their own label as well as a good variety of brewers up and down the West Coast. We'll worth the visit!

My family likes eating here because they like the local brew. I'm not a beer fan so when I dine here I always get a glass of the wine they are serving and I'm never impressed. But they are a beer stop not a wine cellar. The food is ok. I love the wings. They are probably the best wings... More

Always greeted with a smile and leave with a belly full of good food and beer. Food is above average pub food with some twists. Beer selection is a bit off from mainstream, but that is a nice change from the norm. Service has always been solid and the outdoor patio and music is great on a nice summer evening.

This place is a gem in downtown Martinez. The service is excellent. A great selection of beers. The fries are fresh, hot and well seasoned. We loved the sage seasoning on their fries. The sweet potato fries are one of the best I have ever had. The burgers are filling and delicious!

It's kind of a experience with a unique flair. They are a brew pub so you are going to be able to select beers that you have never had before. The menu always has great specials and favorites. Some nights they also have live music. They have a large banquet room upstairs to accommodate groups. Just a cool spot!

Nice brewhouse on the creek. It has outside dining and upstairs dining with a view. Great to watch sports and has good sandwichs and salads.

This is a relatively new Beer Pub that was opened in June 2011. My wife and I had lunch there and want to recommend it to others
