Service was the worst I’ve ever seen in San Francisco on a Saturday night. They had one server for the entire downstairs (maybe they were down wait staff?). A little annoying, but we deal with it. The bad part, and the reason for the review, my father got really sick from the food.

I’ve been here so many times throughout the years, and I’m disappointed to say I won’t be returning. Across the board, a poor experience.

Friendly neighborhood brew pub with decent food and great ambiance. Both in house and guest brews are great. Favorite plates are fish tacos and mussels.

Great selection of beer. The food menu was somewhat more extensive and definitely higher quality than standard bar food ... e.g. the fish and chips was not greasy, the chips were herb seasoned.

Okay food and beer. Watery cocktail. Glasses cleared before drinks were finished. Don't plan to go back.

I made a reservation for some very important people in town. I reserved it over a week in advance and requested a table or booth by the fireplace and there were no tables available when we got there. The hostesses barely knew I had a reservation

Great food, from the bowl of BBQ garbanzo means, to the lumpia appetizer to the beer buttered fish & chips, which came with a great dill tartar sauce. Great service too.

First time visitor there. Really enjoyed the food, the drinks, the whole ambiance of the place. Our server was very well versed in the different beers and was door on with his recommendation for me. Dinner was prepared just to my liking and tasted delicious. I have already mentioned this place to several of my friends.

I had the rueben which was pretty good. The seafood pasta was delicious, even the next day. Noise level was unbearable and it was really hard to have a conversation. Another patron dropped their beer glass and it shattered everywhere; no one did anything about it and when the hostess finally did go over there, she arranged stools and left the broken glass on the floor. I hope no one got hurt! Beer selection was great and our server was attentive and nice. I'd go back!
