Casual
Whether you want to sit on our patio with an ice cold beer, have some great appetizers while watching your favorite sporting event, take your new client out to lunch with a lakeside view, or enjoy a night out with family & friends for a spectacular dinner, Faultline Brewing Company is what you are looking for. Our menu has a broad range of choices from traditional “comfort food” to unique dishes that tantalize the senses.

The beers we brew are traditional, with absolutely no candy, fruit or vegetable flavorings. Our brewer, Peter Catizone, has created a beer menu that offers something for every palate, from the black as coal Irish-style Stout to our light & refreshing Kolsch, a gold medal winner at the California State Fair. We even have a “cask conditioned" ale which is served at cellar temperature from a hand pump for a more pronounced flavor.

Nice place to hangout, good choices of beverages and their bread pudding is a must try.

Restaurant was beautiful but menu didn't really have a great selection. Was looking for a chicken entree and you only have Salmon, steak, and seafood Gumbo. It was for the prices not worth it. I would have chosen another restaurant for lunch. Dinner maybe ok but not for lunch.

This restaurant has a fun atmosphere, decorated with an outdoor ambiance inside the building. (I’m a sucker for this type of decorating.) The food was good — I had fish tacos and my friend had fish and chips. The price was a little high but about as expected for this area.

Faultline delivers! I hadn’t been here in years but the cocktails, food and beer were all excellent. We started with two premium Manhattans. These could be improved with oversized ice cubes and premium cocktail cherries, never the les they were a good start. Our server, Bev, was great. She was attentive, got our drinks out and took our order quickly. We had the pot roast and half rack of babyback ribs. Both entries hit the spot and were very reasonably priced. We will definitely be back for a repeat of this visit.

This is a brewery themed restaurant, not a Michelin star restaurant. People who write reviews where they expect Manresa level cusine and service but at a brewery price point are ridiculous. The wait staff has always been friendly, timely and attentive. The food is better than one might expect. As an added bonus the "begging' ducks outside are hilarious. I've never been disappointed at Faultline, but I'm also not going in expecting a complex dinning experience with a sommelier. Good burgers, good pulled pork, great beer, with friendly staff. Always a great lunch stop when you're in the area.

Nachos were cold, and toppings were not very good. Two fish dishes tasted like frozen fish was used. Cheap ingredients

The food was good given the price point and of course the beer was excellent. On Saturday (and probably Sunday) evenings it tends to be relatively quiet which is great for conversation. On weekday and especially Friday evening it can be quite energetic as it is a popular after work destination.

Met my cousin here for dinner (he was in town for an appointment) and had a great casual dinner - I had the spicy fish tacos and he has the chicken and sausage gumbo and we had a few (!) beers. The waiter was fabulous and I wasn't sure if I wanted one of the beers so he brought me a very small glass of it so I could taste - great service all-around. He was knowledgable about the food and the beers and it really helped in what we decided to eat and drink. We were not rushed and he came back a few times to check on us. The bar and restaurant were packed that evening but we still received fabulous service!

You get a lot of food - even the small plates are big enough for a good meal. Service was really good - there was a huge party next to us, our waiter was very apologetic at not being too attentive to us, but it was all good, we really didn't have to wait for things.

We went here with a group right when they opened on a Saturday night so it was low key and quiet. Based on the size I can imagine it could be louder during peak hours. It is a beautiful facility with many window seats facing a small body of water. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. I highly recommend the fish and chips with homemade potato chips not fries. This is the best fish and chips! I can't wait to take more friends there and try more dishes. They also brew their own beer and do double decker flights. Looking forward to trying those as well!

The service was great. We were seated immediately. Our server introduced himself and took our drink order within minutes of being seated. The food came out quickly, and was very good. I had the blackened chicken sandwich. It was very good, but not as spicy as I expected, but not an issue.

Great selection of home brewed beers!
The menu is rich enough to accommodate a proper meal, or something small to accompany the beers.

The service is always great - makes you feel welcome.

Thanks, guys!

Faultine is busy, fun, and visually open. It is a large restaurant and a fair size bar as well. My guest and I were seated 15 minutes EARLIER than our reservation, which was perfect. The choices on the menu provide a little something for everyone. Prices range from $$ to $$$ depending. We both ordered the Braised Beef Pot Roast which was quite tasty and a good sized portion, for a reasonable price. I would definitely go back again. You should give a try. Have a great day!

What is the point of using open table when each of the last 3 bookings I’ve used says collect 100 points, then after I’ve checked in it says this meal is not eligible for points. Pretty much done with open table, unless this practice changes, it is very misleading.

Sent back out dinner two times and it was first over cooked steak and then when they returned it was not even cooked. We gave up and just dealt with the raw steak and WAITER was awesome he tried very hard to please us.

The lunch menu is rather limited and somewhat overpriced. Even though the restaurant had many empty tables, it was hard to get someone to wait on you. Their beer isn’t that flavorful. I had the Thai Salmon Burger which was good.

The staff was friendly and quick. Our waiter Jason was knowledgeable about both the menus and the beer (and made a stellar recommendation for our one vegetarian who had told him,”surprise me”). Two of my friends had the Kolsch and really liked it (second glass). One friend had the Hefeweizen and liked it. I loved the Winter Warmer and would have had a second glass of that seasonal porter style if I wasn’t driving. I had the seafood gumbo and it was excellent. All in all a very good night.
