“Great Pub and Grub”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

We had a very scenic drive from Santa Rosa to Occidental. This is a small town with several places to eat! This tavern was a hit. I was in the mood for a burger and I was not disappointed! Huge, juicy, delicious, and flavorful! The fries were a heaping portion and enough to share. My husband had the Maui Maui special and loved it. The fish firm, fresh and delicious. The beers on draught were exceptional. Our wonderful server offered us tastes when we had questions re the brews. The samples were 1 oz each and enough to give me an idea of the taste! We enjoyed our meals, brews and topped it off with a chocolate mousse, made with some brew in the mix. Very tasty and much enjoyed! We will be back, especially when on the back roads and exploring Sonoma County!!!

“Most popular place in town”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Food was good, trendy and popular beer garden type atmosphere. Not cheap, lots of goods beer on tap. Salad had lots of yummy marinated veges, which I like.Good music, bar has tv for sports if interested. Was lucky to be there before the crowds. Gets pretty noisy on the weekends.

“An amazing brew pub”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

So many beers and so little time...but we had a burger and fries and enjoyed the crowd which seemed to really be having a great time. We'd certainly hit this hot spot again...
