We travelled for 2 days up through Mendocino and into Humboldt. The best dining for us didn't occur at the 4 diamond resort in Benbow, it was at Ukiah Brewing as we headed south for home. Every staff person presented a genuinely warm and sincere service standard. Our waiter James was superb. He's mastered the lost art of staying in the moment and not appearing hurried even when things are busy. The fish and chips was spot on, the fries were as good as you can get. The falafel plate was correct, someone actually knows what they're doing with the patties - they weren't dried out. Tried two different ales and both met the benchmark of high quality Northern Cali craft brewing. That's what makes a complete dining experience, staff who don't rush the tempo along with food and beverages that hit the mark of mastery. Nice going indeed.

I was on the road and saw a billboard for this place, said hey brew pubs have good food normally so I'll give it a try.

First issue is parking, street parking only and it was 20 plus minutes and 4 blocks away, finally arrived and sat at the bar, ordered a porter which was quite tasty. I also ordered a rueban sandwich because the menu description sounded great, especially with house made sauerkraut, and cole slaw.

Took about 25 minutes for sandwich to get to the bar, there was only about 15 people in the whole place. I looked at my plate and had to laugh as the side of cole slaw without exaggerating was 1 teaspoon of slaw. Then the sandwich which did have ample amount of meat was absolutely flavorless. The kraut if it was even on there no flavor, even the thousand island dressing had no taste. The only thing I could actually taste was the over buttered rye bread. Such a disappointment.

A great place to hang out, have a brewsky and meet friendly folks. Everyone in this small little burg is friendly and willing to share where to go and what to dos with wandering travelers. Did not try the food, but the selection of organic brews is fab! Drop by and have a sit at the bar...you won't be disappointed.

We just left the restaurant and I'm still hungry! The food portion was small and not very good. We ordered the nachos but we had mostly chips with beans... Not much cheese or any other topping. There were only two waitreses serving the entire restaurant. When we were seated, the waitress helped two tables that were sat after us before she had even taken our drink order. You know that feeling you get when you are wondering if your table even has a waitress assigned to it. So finally we got up and went to the bar to order drinks and our food. The food took about 20 minutes to be served and as I wrote earlier, was not very good. Then to end our meal, we were given the bill which showed our pint a different cost than the 'special price that was accidentally posted in the bar'. The only good thing about the place was that the beer tasted good.

There's a Quiznos across the street where you can probably get more food for less money and better service.
