I had the Automatic beer, it was light (lager) but it had taste to it. Had the burger and it was just fabulous. Will be back to try the rest of the beer & food menu. Very friendly staff.

Place was not busy at 6:30 on a Thursday evening. waiter was very polite but inattentive. We ordered the burgers as eceryting else seemed not quite appropo for a beer bar. The burgers were greasy and too many fries. two beers and two burgers $55.00. Spend it elsewhere.

We had a late, yet leisurely dinner at this restaurant on our last night in Mill Valley. We had the salmon and burger dinners - very good. Tried the IPA (India Pale Ale). The restaurant is just a short stroll from the Mill Valley Library.

Chose this place because we thought that it would be a brewery with food, but it's actually a restaurant with a good range of beers. Menu was small plates or large with a range of mostly fashionable dishes, Brussels sprouts, quinoa, fregula, roast cauliflower etc. Our dishes were all very tasty and served quickly. Lively atmosphere but dark. Torch app... More

We just spent one night in Mill Valley and had an excellent meal here. We mostly shared small plates and they were great about making dishes for my wife, who is vegan and glutan free.

This is a great spot to stop for a few beers with friends. We stopped after a long hike. The place has an upscale, casual feel. Nice fresh and local food options as well. We were extremely pleased with all of our choices, from salads to burgers. Most importantly, they have great beer!
