We were taken there by the owners of the business we were working with. Now for the food... Soup: leek and potato soup. Thick creamy and flavorful. It was a great starter for the meal. I loved the chunks of potatoes in it. Main: Hanger steak. I have been looking for this cut for so long! Even at the best... More

Stopped by here to eat on the last day of our visit, it was pretty good. I have never had a steak cooked in a pan, but it was pretty good. I much prefer a grilled steak though. The creme brulee was perfection.

We found the beers to be quite good, but the deep fried artichoke hearts were a bit greasy and flavorless. Service was friendly, but prices are fairly steep for a brew house.

The fact that this restaurant is in Salinas plays into my review. We had dinner here and had a pleasant experience. There are not many good choices of restaurants in Salinas so no one needs to really excel. We tried the cherry wheat beer and both of us immediately sent it back. It had a very sour flavor that was... More

Decor is brew pub and brick. We were seated after a very brief wait and the waitress was right with us for drink orders. Noting again the huge portions of food everyone else had I orderd a small side salad spinach, beets, carrots and almonds with a sprinkling of bacon bits and three wedges of bread with melted cheese. Not... More

I walked by this place a few times in the past and was always curious about it. Located in a large brick building, the space occupied by Monterey Coast Brewing, has high ceilings and an cool, old fashioned look. Personally I like to hang out at the bar, but the restaurant part has plenty of seating available. Large copper and... More

Many choices of great beers and really good food. Their desserts are amazing. The Mud Pie is my favorite.

This is probably the best restaurant in Salinas for a thin crust pizza. My pizza was outstanding, beyond good!
