Description: The crow bar and kitchen is the first gastropub for Orange County, complete with an array of international brews and a selective wine-by-the-glass program. The menu is done with a gourmet touch leaning on local, farm-fresh ingredients. It's high-end comfort food with an environmentally savvy twist. The crow bar and kitchen has created a different type of pub menu that celebrates local food, honors tradition and welcomes seasonality, with special attention given to illustrate the varying ways beer and food can be paired to make both more enjoyable. These menu changes will further support the farm to table model. The crow bar and kitchen is proud to support sustainable agriculture as well as local farms and businesses in order to serve food that simply tastes better. Pubs with their welcoming, fun and vibrant atmospheres have a long history of anchoring and building communities.

5 of us shared poo poo's and enjoyed cocktails. Highlight was a great server, Kellie (sp?). Would definitely return, preferably not on a Friday or Sat nite

“Best Burger ever!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Dropped by this cozy Bar on Sunday night following a travel day to Newport Beach.

Absolutely the best burgers we've had in ages! Grilled bun, done just right, assorted greens and cheese topped off the burger. My husband added Sweet Potato Fries and we shared....generous portion, good pricing for the Corona area. He had a Belgium light draft, I have Black iced tea...no disappointments!

“wine service mistake”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

My wife and I went for dinner and each ordered a glass of wine before the meal. I asked for the house merlot and was served a glass, Several minutes later, the server came back to the table and said that by mistake I was given a more expensive wine, and if I wanted to keep it, that would be fine, but I would be charged the higher price. In disbelief, I asked if the manager was in agreement with this. I was told that he was. I was so mad, I don't remember a thing about the food.

We live in CDM and will not be returning to the Crow Bar.

“beer bar and more...”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

yup, come for the many great beers on tap and enjoy the active, causal happy hour and nighttime crowd. Good pub/bistro food with some creative menu items. mostly a drinking crowd - which is not bad given that it is near so many other great restaurants nearby.
