I lived on the coast for years and this place hasn't ever changed which is wonderful. The bread is homemade daily as is the soup. They also make the best potato salad! Always great quality and consistently great food.

Lots of changes since last time we ate here; now more of country western bar.
Happy Hour for drinks.
Came here in spite of the negative reviews.
The bartender is also the food server; staffing issue?; but Elizabeth was friendly and efficient.
The food is mostly burgers (including make your own) and pizza, both of which were very tasty.
The only dessert is brownies.
Part of the San Benito House Hotel.

My wife and I sat at the old wooden bar and had fried calamari which was very very good ! We also had a cold Lagunitias IPA from Marin Co that was perfect for the calamari. Been here few times before and I would say there calamari was the best tasting ever.
