Best place to find a Mai Tai that will kick you to the curb. Not the best looking place in town but if you want to have a good drink this is the place to go

Pleasanton has a lot of restaurants to choose from during a day, but sometimes you just want to hang out a little bit longer on a Saturday night and then you options get really limited. So give this place a try. Yes, the interior is basic, the food and drinks are not bad but not something to write about either,... More

Beer and food were okay, make-over might help, antiquated, our server Kayla was outstanding, she even used sign to communicate with our non-verbal daughter.

2 weeks ago we took a day trip through Pleasanton and decided to stop at this brew pub. We were disappointed not only at the food, but the beer. The beer tasted as though the taps had not been cleaned or sanitized recently. There was a distinct "sour" taste that was unmistakable. I ordered their home-brewed root beer which tasted... More

My wife and I stopped by for a beer on an early Saturday afternoon and it was nice, quiet and peaceful. I had their house brewed porter which was pretty good. My wife had a froo-froo beer (which is not beer in my book). I would definitely frequent this place if I lived in the area!

Went for a drink and appetizer on Friday night. Sat outside on the patio and sat and sat. About 15 minutes went by when the waitress asked to take our order. I replied we had not seen a menu but by now waited 20 minutes. She returned with a menu said "Back in a minute" and that was it. Never... More

The Main Street Brewery owner did a really nice job remodeling this space after its previous life as a Mexican restaurant. It is tucked in to the right of Main Street Brewery. Can dine outside too. Great little 'small plates' menu to enjoy with well-stocked bar and good wine selections. One thing, they could benefit from closing doors that open... More

We stopped here on a Sunday, driving from San Jose north. The location is wonderful, on a main street, in a great town full of shops and restaurants. But the entire restaurant felt as though it needed a good scrub down. The menu was quite varied, but the food seemed very average; the beers just didn't seem very exciting or... More

Visited for lunch on a Saturday. Sat on porch, ordered a flight of beer (extremely afford able at $1 per sample) All brews were delicious and my ahi tuna sandwich was very enjoyable. Theit water has a hint of cucumber - refreshing and delicious. Beautiful area of town & great wait staff. Thanks for making our trip that much more... More

The Main Street Brewery is actually two restaurants in one…the main/large restaurant and an adjoining restaurant called 828..same owners, different styles of dining. The Main Brewery has pub style food, live music a few nights a week, a relaxed atmosphere and a full bar lined with regular locals…like Cheers. Although we used to stop in often to the Main Brewery... More
