We always love Pub 32 and how there seems to be different things on the menu every time we go. My husband got the Philly cheesesteak and I got chicken thigh coq au vin over really good mashed potatoes. Both were delicious. The servings are quite large so we were able to take half of each home for lunch the next day. I recommend highly.

I have been to this place a few times.. My favorites are the poutine, brussel sprouts and their drinks..
My partner and I went for new years eve. We got the poutine and drinks. The portion was huge, it tasted really good except the saltiness.. It also did not have bacon in it even though the description said it would. They serve it in a skillet now.. It used to be served in a bowl.. with a lot of bacon bits.. It tasted divine then.
It filled us up though, we left without ordering any entrees.. Ambiance was good. It was crowded but not super crowded, waitress did a great job, energy levels were good. All in all, not a bad night.

My wife and I stopped at Pub 32 last night. We had reservations and were immediately seated. We were given a nice table by the window. The service was quick and efficient. I ordered the fish and chips and my wife had the short ribs and mash! We always share bites with each other’s food. I really enjoyed the fish and the French fries were hot and tasty. My wife’s short ribs were very tender and the gravy on the mashed potatoes was excellent. The manager stopped by to check on us several times and he was friendly and knowledgeable. The food presentation was excellent! I also had a very nice hazy IPA beer with my dinner and it was cold and hit the spot. That was the first time we had eaten there but it certainly won’t be the last time! We plan on coming back very soon. I would highly recommend this olace to anyone. I was exactly what a neighborhood Pub should be! Friendly atmosphere, good beer and food and moderate prices.

We were meeting friends from South County so this was the perfect half way meeting spot. I'm so glad I made a reservation! They were full up at 6pm on a Saturday night. The patio was crowded with diners waiting for the live music to start. We started with the house made chips and onion dip - worth the $7 price for these fabulous chips!

I ordered the Short Ribs and asked for extra carrot shreds, take my advice, this is the most fabulous dish on the menu. Unless you are from Philly and haven't had a good Cheese Steak sub in a while, you'll be happy to order one here and have it served on an Amarosa bun (the only bun for cheese steaks in Philly). Our diners ordered the sausage in pastry (pigs in a blanket), the vegetarian taco salad and the salmon, and everyone was happy with their choices.
The bar has a lot of cool beers, not all IPA's like most hipster bars these days. Worth the drive and a great place to meet friends from all over the OC.

Celebrated a girlfriend's birthday and ate outside. The heaters worked perfectly! The charcuterie tray was excellent; the service was superb and attentive. My girlfriend got the Italian beef sandwich and enjoyed it. I ordered the roasted cauliflower, but wasn't too happy with it. But overall, it was a nice experience and I will go back!

The server was very knowledgeable and attentive but the atmosphere was not the greatest, it was more a bar feeling I was a little disappointed.
I ordered the Beef Stroganoff and my husband ordered the Fish and Chips.
The Stroganoff was just ok, the meat was tender but there was no flavor to the dish. I had to ask for salt and pepper.
The Fish and Chips were fine, the Fish was crispy and the fries were hot.

Thank you

We drove up from North San Diego County to take our son, who lives in that area, out to dinner. We found it on Open Table and the reviews were mostly good, so we decided to give it a try. Everything was excellent and the value just amazing! Prices very reasonable and the quality of food really good! The sound of a people enjoying a meal filled the room - friendly service and a nice clean friendly environment! We had a great visit with our son and will definitely be back!

Meh. The sausage rolls were mushy and noticeably under cooked. The satay has 3 oversized pieces of chicken (so it tasted like chicken, not satay) - but they were cold and one was undercooked. The sauce was not authentic - it didn't taste like a satay.

Good beer, good smashburger, excellent fries, okay music.

Pub Thirty-Two is like family! When you walk in you are greeted like old friends. It is always clean and inviting whether it’s a Sunday brunch, or date night on Saturday night. Many times live music is played on the patio for all to enjoy. The food and drinks are fresh and unique. We highly recommend you give Pub a try!

We sat on the back patio, which was very noisy because it is off a heavily trafficked street. Shrimp scampi was average. My husband liked his salmon.
