We enjoyed a wonderful evening on the patio. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. We enjoyed the beers also! I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Don't be fooled by the menu. We ordered everything from the calamari appetizer to the turkey club. Probably would still be there if we didn't physically have to get up and track down our waitress after waiting for our first beer and then food. When we were ready to check out the waitress grabbed our bill, but forgot to process... More

The food was not good and the service was very slow. The waiter came by fairly quickly after we sat down but it took a really long time to deliver our drink order and quite a bit longer after that to get our food. Only then when he brought our food did he tell us that one of the things... More

Went to enjoy some of the beers in the menu only to find out many weren't available. Apparently out of season. Food was very good, service excellent. Central location and reasonably priced.

Why do restaurants advertise that they do banquets, but deliver 20 dinners one by one over thirty minutes? The easiest one, soup, came out last. The food quality is average for brew pubs - much better is out there for sure.

This is an interesting place to hangout. It starts about 5:30 with a business crowd suits and ties, but by around seven, the crowd converts to college students from nearby SJSU.

The food and beer was all very good. I had the salmon stuck with the Marzen. The service was great as well.

The garlic fries were a great appetizer -- and I had one of the Lighter Pilsner beers, which was still as satisfying a beer as I remembered it when I had been there before. Our server was very attentive, considering she was going back and forth from quite a few tables -- and didn't miss a step, even though we... More

Although food is average, beers worth the visit and there are some good ones. Service is good and the patio is a great place to enjoy summer nights.

Every item on the menu is a step above the norm. Had a hiccup with our order. Manager and server took care of us. When you make a mistake, own it and make it right. I love this restaurant!!
