This is our "go to" place for a meal before a Sharks game. It is a few blocks away from SAP Center, so it is an easy walk. We have been here multiple times and never had a bad experience. It is usually very crowded (as you would expect), but the servers are used to it and you get your... More

Came here to watch a Packers game. This is a cool place (I'm surprised at the spotty reviews). Tons of TVs. Lots of tables. Big bar. Lots of choices. Framed memorabilia on the walls. Pleasant and attentive wait staff. A large breakfast menu with some very creative offerings (plus a few old standbys). I ordered creme brûlée French toast. Oh... More

Had a great time visiting recently with a friend for a Patriots fan event. It's a fun atmosphere with some cool staff members and some reasonable drink prices. The food at the event was pretty good as well. Parking could be tricky during peak times so public transportation or an Uber/Lyft would do the trick!

This is your typical British pub with the regular British comfort foods. Pretty wide selection of food choices.

Great beer selection and I love the back patio at the DT location. Food is always serviceable - it won't blow you away, but it's good pub food. I work across the street and find myself here at least once a month for lunch and a beer on a Friday afternoon.
