“Very popular place with good pub food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

So very busy, even on a Sunday night. We enjoyed our food and drinks and the service was friendly and helpful.

We were surprised to see lots of families with small kids.

“Great Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Beer and seafood platter were perfect. The day we were there 8/24 was clear, blue sky and sunny. Would highly recommend even for a day trip from the bay area.

“Very nice restaurant...good food and wonderful view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

We had just arrived in the area and were starving. We saw this cute little place and decided to give it a try. It was a wonderful surprise.The service was good, food was great (if maybe a little pricey...certainly NOT the worse I've ever paid) and their home brew....EXCELLENT!

“OUTSTANDING for big group”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Our Labor Day weekend Saturday group made two reservations totally about 40, and completely filled one of their back rooms. HMBBC provided THE BEST SERVICE I'VE EVER HAD FOR A BIG GROUP, and I'm including big expensive hotel dining rooms in that sentence. We had several staff working with us; they took drink and dinner orders (separately for some diners; together for other hungrier ones). Drinks and food came incredibly fast and perfectly accurately (Mango tosdadas--no sour cream came to the right person, as did the two Maverick Burgers with and without cheese). Our main server then was totally flexible as to how to divide the bill so we weren't all sitting there doing calculus on smartphones.
Food is also really good; they know exactly what they can make well here, including several unique Yucatecan dishes that we are familiar with from many Yucatan Mexico visits.
Five well-deserved stars for the HMB Brewing Company!
