“A Local Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

If you are looking for a great place to watch a game, or just to sit around a fire pit talking with friends, you'll love The Office.

They now have most of the outdoor area covered, but it still feels like outside. The fire pits make for a great atmosphere and a wonderful place to hang out with friends. They also have a bocci ball court around the side.

The food is solid. Don't miss the Red Neck Taco or the spicy wings. They make a mean bloody mary to boot. If you are looking for some healthy food, they have a nice assortment of salads that are delicious. And if you aren't eating healthy....the fries with the spicy aioli for dipping are yummy.

The staff is friendly and helpful. They sometimes get overwhelmed because it gets very busy, especially during Giants and 9'ers games, but I've never had "poor" service.

“Fun atmosphere....for after a softball game”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Took my friend here for dinner on a Thursday night. Place was packed with guys who had just played softball. Big tvs everywhere. 80s and 90s music blasting. Food was decent bar food, nothing spectacular. We had the grilled artichoke, which was a bit undercooked, a grilled shrimp with painted-on bbq sauce or something and shared a burger which came with good sweet potato fries. They were accommodating of requests to alter things, i.e. get a whole-wheat bun. Good service. Fun atmosphere. And the kind of food you would expect from a place like this. Firepit seating is great if you can get a table outside. Best bet: get a firepit seat and order some drinks.

“Awesome Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had decided to try the Office on Saturday late mid morning. We sat outside, which was very comfortable had overhead heaters and floor fireplace settings. The food was awesome and the wait staff was very attentive yet never hovering. I had eggs Benedict, with the house potatoes. The potatoes were done to perfection (in fact I would have gone back just for the potatoes). They do not take reservations, if you want a quieter meal I would go in the in between times. We hit the place just right, the breakfast crowd had left and the lunch was just coming in as we were finishing our meal. I would not hesitate to go back again.

“A CASUAL FUN PLACE TO DINE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

This is a good place to go,when you want to go casual, hamburgers ,sandwiches and soup, My favorite is their polenta, very good, its outdoor dining under a tent,or overhang, a firepit can keep you warm
