Had lunch there on Tuesday after my long flight from Miami to San Francisco. Service and food were excellent. They have over 100 beers and unfortunately my favorite Red Stripe was not one of the offering.

Mmmmm, beer. What a selection! About 100 on tap. They let you sample anything for free so you can "try before you buy". Wait staff and bartenders were friendly. We waited about 45 minutes for a table on a Tuesday night. Bar was very crowded but not oppressive. Food was average. Beer was great.

Great food and beer selections (wine selections limited), conveniently located and moderately priced fun. Geared more for the upscale sports and youthful after-work crowd, there is also a variety of kid-friendly food selections. The beer "dispenser," bar, and TV monitors are the highlights of the place. A very popular place given the location. Go by 5 pm or the wait can become lengthy on the weekends. Lively ambiance (sometimes a little loud) and music. The menu selection is ethnically diverse with salads, seafood, meats, pizza, burgers, sandwiches, pasta, etc. A mind-boggling array. Something for everyone! Heard the street tacos (especially a value during happy hour) are delicious. Always had responsive and friendly service, even during busy times. The kitchen is very accommodating to changes in the menu, i.e., no butter, as I have food allergies and sensitivities. I've especially enjoyed the Ribeye (4 out of 5 times, tender and flavorful; once a little dry and chewy), spinach cheese dip appetizer (a must!), chicken enchilada stack (son's fave!), Greek salad filling and delicious, pastrami sandwich (very tender and yummy) and the burgers are another must. The Miso Seabass was cooked tender, but a bit too salty. Love the truffle fries as well. Conveniently located in Santana Row and across the street from Valley Fair Mall, it is a fun place to unwind with good food.
