“Great little craft brewery!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

We are spoiled in St. Louis with over a dozen local craft breweries, so when we found out that San Juan had one-we just had to check it out. The stout was delicious, although it was more like a porter-it was very enjoyable.I also had their "coqui", which was a helles style lager- unfiltered and unpasteurized as well was yummy. The pale ale is also really nice- it is on the hoppier side. The pilsner was malty and good, but I didn't have a desire to drink a second one. We were only mildly disappointed that they were out of their seasonal brew.

The food was delicious. It was a little pricy- but the portions were nice. The bread they bring out is served with guava butter! I wanted to eat the butter once the bread was gone. Holy delicious! We tried the sampler of sides which had rice, beans, maduros and tostones- and that was too much food. We had been recommended the skirt steak "churrasco", and it was very tender and cooked perfectly med rare. I had a salad a well, and it was very good.

Our server was very attentive as well as friendly.

“Fantastic food and beer!”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

First, let me say that this place looks like the typical over-priced tourist trap. In fact, the restaurant was carefully developed by a family who were interested in providing outstanding beer, food, and service to the tourists. It is in fact a micro-brewery with its own proprietary brews, I believe six in all. It was also quite expensive, but that's to be expected owing to its location and the quality of the building and its interior.

“Stick to Rum”
Reviewed November 10, 2012 via mobile

It was a Friday night - and so loud you couldn't talk. Good live music though, Gypsy Kings cover band meets Oasis cover band. it actually was pretty good.

I had their beer sampler and their tempura. While the shrimp were big, they weren't especially flavorful. And the beer was just underwhelming as well. Pub food at its most basic.

That said, a large group may be interested in splitting a beer bong fill of their brew. Its lively and big, so can accommodate large parties.

“Great menu of beer and food”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

Made 2 visits to Old Harbor in late January and in late October. On both occasions a group of friends enjoyed great service, and sampled several different items on the menu and tried all of the various beer selections available. The eggplant Milanese was superb, and we enjoyed fresh sea bass and three varieties of mofongo - beef, chicken and lobster. All were very good. The sampler platters of appetizers are a great way to experience Puerto Rican cuisine. Would recommend anyone visiting old San Juan to enjoy the ambiance.

“Good beer and great food!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Visited October 13, 2012 during their Octoberfest. We had a beer sampler, all were very good. Food was DELICIOUS! Steaks were cooked to perfection! Crowded night but service was quick and good. Easy walk from Sheraton Old San Juan. Highly recommend for a great meal and atmosphere!
