A nice pub atmosphere, with lots of good food and drinks. I was here twice, the second time we stayed for hours, without the waiters getting impatient... (And in the end, we even decided to - finally - have dinner...)

They have a large choice of meals all made a little differently to the regular restaurant, but all are good.

Went with friends, two different times, and they both like the place. To me, it seemed overpriced and pretentious. I had difficulty finding something to order both times. I think there are much better places to eat in Thousand Oaks.

Amazing happy hour gourmet selections from ahi poke to calamari. Lettuce wraps are fabulous along with fried quesadilla.

We order the margarita pizza and portobello mushroom burger. The pizza comes with arugula and a basaltic drizzle that made my taste buds freak out (in the best way)! The mushroom burger was marinated to perfection and melted in your mouth. Add avocado, it's divine! We almost went back for a second meal but opted to try a new place...... More

Love the food here! We order to go because it can be crowded! My husband loves the pilot roast sandwich and I got a really good chicken salad! Gets busy, best to go during the week

I love the concept of dining al fresco with my dog and all the servers are naturally friendly toward the dogs. I ordered a hamburger for my spaniel mix mini long haired daschaund/.. it came with white rice and gravy... looked and smelled delicious!

Have eaten here a few times and looking forward to the next visit. All though I have not yet taken advantage of this additional benefit, this is a dog friendly restaurant for the patio diners. Servers are very helpful and accommodation without being intrusive. Their ribs are some of the best I have ever had and side dishes are unusual... More
