“Best tap selection in town”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

This place spills out onto the street, and has a big fireplace inside. The beer selection is the most decent in town, with a couple of good west coast IPAs that are kept fresh. It's really a bar with a very decent kitchen - and very good for lunch. Can get a little loud.

“CITY PUB, A gathering place .”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

This is a hang out for all ages, you can eat outside, and watch the city go bye. It has good fried zucchini and most of their soups are good,plus very good hamburger, or turkey burgers.

“Fun place”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

The City Pub is a great place to go with friends for lunch or dinner. They have a great assortment of beers on tap and delicious "pub food".

“What happened?”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

Been coming here for years as I live a couple of blocks away, but today????Burger came with a wilted tomato, ONE onion ring, not a slice but a ring, and a small one at that and undercooked meat. This is not a reflection of the waiter as he was good and apologetic for the ridiculously long wait for one burger. With over a third of the bun left the meat was gone. WHAT HAPPENED. I was here about a month ago with no issues and frequent about once every 6 weeks or so. Bottom line is for 25$ for one person I got a burger,fries and two beers. Not a problem if it was good. It always was and used to be WHAT HAPPENED???

“Informal, large variety of beers”
Reviewed May 23, 2012 via mobile

I went there a few times with colleagues from my work. They have a huge variety of beers, so if you're into trying something new in this area, or alternatively into drinking a great beer you're already familiar with - it's certainly a recommended place.

The food is nice as a pub food - not a gourmet dinner, but there's certainly what top eat by the beer.

Bottom line: if you're looking for a place to have a couple of beers in the Redwood City area, this should one of your first choices.
