    There was live music the night I went--not a bad thing, but noisy--enough to be a hindrance to dinner conversation. Food was good--ahi tower, applewood bacon and cheddar fries, Greek salad. Great for late night supper.

    We've been to the CRBC a couple of times and after the most recent we've decided it will be our last. The beer and mixed drinks are good but the food was lacking flavor and texture in every dish we ordered. One of my children even refused to eat her mac and cheese, which has never happened before. We had a salad and the vegetarian pasta and it looked like it was going to be great but that's about it. No flavor, no seasoning, nothing at all. The service is also basically poor. We went on a Friday night at about 5:30 and there were maybe 10 other tables filled and our server acted like she was too busy to take drinks orders.

    Every Wednesday, CRBC has trivia night. Which is also fun to be with. On time i assumed a lot of people were so i got a table of 7, but changed to 4 when they said they weren't. Then after being seated they randomly showed up. CRBC did push two tables together, so we could all sit together. Trivia night can be loud, when lots of people are their, but it is fun!!!. I enjoy going to CRBC on Wednesday!! The foods is medium priced ($30 and under). Also their menue's do change!

    Dined on 9/7/2014
    Good was good, especially the short rib grilled cheese sandwich. A plus is that truffle fries are still available of you ask, just not on the menu. They are getting very close to really over pricing themselves and might already be there....they've shrunk the size of the burgers. Still enough to make you feel full, but noticeably smaller than previous trips. Good beer list.

    We chose this restaurant because of the good reviews on Open Table and were not disappointed. We made our reservation, arrived 15 minutes early and were required to wait until our scheduled reservation time. We were then seated at a table that was vacant when we entered the restaurant. I don't get it? The prices are reasonable and the food was excellent. We had Sand Dabs, the Fisherman's Stew (great) and a grilled Artichoke.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/8/2014
    While their selection is great, I had always assumed that they also brewed their own beer, but that is not the case. Not sure I accept their answer on how calling themselves a brewing company is not deceptive but they more than make up for that little disappointment with great food.

    We were a party of 7 (4 adults, 3 kids). On one order, they brought fries instead of the house salad. They forgot another order all together and then brought the order out with fries instead of the house salad. Ordered a cider, but it never came. Our waiter was nice enough, but they made a lot of mistakes on our order and the place was not crowded for a Monday at 530PM.

    Visited Cannery Row Brewing after a day at the Aquarium. We were seated quickly after a short walk (made our reservation while touring the Aquarium). Everyone in the family raved about their dinners. Sand dabs entree was excellent. Many beer choices, some from large breweries (like InvBev) and some from small microbreweries.

    We went to Cannery Row Brewing on our first night in the Monterey area while on our family vacation from the Cincinnati, OH area. We ordered the parmesan pretzel appetizer that was absolutely delicious. Between the six of us, we ordered three pulled pork sandwiches, two chicken sandwiches and the Vaquero burger. I had the pulled pork and tried the others. All were delicious. Our four kids enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant. We would definitely eat here again if we find ourselves in Monterey.

    There with a group of Italians from the Superbike races we were a big group and the place was busy. The food choices were wide and varied and offered something for almost any one. Even as busy as they were our waitress did a good job of tending to our ongoing and vast drink needs. the food was good with choices ranging from salads and burgers to fish and chips and salmon. Would go back without hesitation.

    Dined on 6/7/2014
    We had just finished a Spartan race. Our reservation of 10 grew to 13. The girls at the front were so nice they told us "no problem" . We also ran a few minutes late. They called me to check if we were still coming. The restaurant was full of other race celebrants and others. Our group was a bit noisy. Not frowned upon at all. The people next to us moved to a nearby table that cleared so we could have more room. ( a pitcher of beer helped there, but also the establishment didn't grumble ). Food was excellent.....

    We got a table for two and just ordered an appetizer and an entree. We were expecting to split both from the same plate and didn't have any problem with that, but they split both onto two plates for us without asking. We thought that was a very nice touch by the waitress. We really appreciated it.

  • Average food, if available
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 4/27/2014
    The food was average bar type munchies. I was disappointed that for the very beginning our server pointed out that a number of items on the menu were not available, a few that I was interested in trying. They didn't have a bun for my burger, so I had to request some other type of bread to substitute. Overall, the food quality did not quite match the price paid.

    Went there on a Friday night with my lady. We both were impressed with the space of the restaurant, the popularity it has among the locals makes making your decision to eat there an easy choice. Even if you are alone, this place is a restaurant where you can purchase your favorite beers and watch some sports, without to much of a hassle. Made a reservation and was able to be sitting at a table within 10 mins. I had heard about the gigantic pretzels, and I had the urge to go. I ordered too appetizers and they were both very good. When I go back, I'm taking more friends.

    We made reservations on line. The max was 10 people. We called the restaurant directly 2 days beforehand and added 5 more people. They sat us at two tables next to each other. Reservation was for 7pm. We were seated on time. We had two kids in our group and they got kid menus and a bucket of crayons. The food was good. Fish and chips. Burgers. Good beer selection. They have a couple ciders too. They did a good job with service for a 15 person group. We stayed for Trivia at 8pm. That was a lot of fun.

    We were put on the porch even though the restaurant was empty. The heaters were off because another party was too hot and the waiter would not turn them on even though the hostess said it would be the warmest place in the restaurant. It was freezing and also raining. The plastic door covers didn't work because the hooks had been ripped through. The food was sub par. Not a great experience.

    We went to Cannery Row Brewing Company for my husband's birthday. We had a reservation for 830, but arrived much earlier. While waiting for a table, we sat in the waiting section and enjoyed bar beverages. We were seated about 45 mins later, which was in time to what the hostess said when we arrived. Our server was AWESOME and very attentive. They even brought my husband a birthday sundae at the end of our meal, without us asking!!! We would definitely recommend Cannery Row Brewing Company to anyone looking for a high-energy, friendly, fun restaurant/bar. And we will definitely be back!

  • Timing is everything...
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 3/3/2014
    Food was very good. Kitchen timing was not. I ordered a salad and an entree. Waited a long time for the salad - so I was suspicious that there was going to be a problem. And there was. As soon as the runner dropped the salad, the second runner was standing behind him with our entrees. Server was fairly inattentive. When I complained about the timing, I was told that there was a large party and that the kitchen was scrambling to get orders out. Great. That makes me feel a lot better. Not. She did take the salad off the check. This is really unfortunate, because the ceasar salad was actually very good. I would like to have enjoyed it before my entree - as I ordered it.

    This was my second time here in the past 6 months and I enjoyed it again, as did my family. A little something for everyone with great beer selections! We ate everything from soup (the squash soup is fantastic!) to salads to burgers to salmon to pasta and it was all great. Service was above average with a team environment on the drinks, so we never had empty glasses. A definite must-try if in Monterey!

    Went to the Monterey Bay Acquarium with the family, as is our New Years Day tradition, and had a late lunch at CRBC....killer beer selection (just what you need to endanger any New Years resoultions...!) and nice variety on the food menu...a festive take on the "pub grub" selection. Food was very tasty and the service (Michael) was friendly, attentive and prompt. Bottom line: great place to cap a day at the aquarium and touristing Cannery Row. Well done...and we'll certainly be back next year...!

The place was packed with those playing trivia, the service was pretty slow, should get a couple more wait staff for trivia night. But overall great night and trivia was fun.
