Food and drink quality was mediocre. Salmon fish tacos dry and unimaginative. Rye Manhatten was nothing special. THOMAS at John Ashe makes a hands down better drink. Sad since I have heard so much about this restaurant.

I had a great beet salad. It looked as good as it tasted. It was nice sitting on the patio facing the courthouse. My server was friendly and helpful. It was the perfect choice for lunch.

Overall a chill place to enjoy a drink and the game. Could definitely use a bit more attention to cleanliness, food particles where we had a reserved spot at the bar (so they knew we were coming) and my coffee saucer had some sticky residue that was suspect. We’d give it another try tho

Not the best experience. Made reservations on open table and when seated I informed the host about my reservation. It was obvious he wasn’t going to check me in for my reservation. I proceeded to inform two waitstaff and had the same response.
My friend and I ate and drank dinner and when I got home, I had an email from open table chastising me for not showing up at the restaurant and cancelling my reservations! Really!
I informed them of my experience, they apologized, said they’d discuss this with the restaurant and have me credit.
I doubt I’ll return, and that’s a shame given the food was good.

Food was good and priced very reasonable. Considering it was a brunch regular coffee should still be offered. Service was very good.

My husband and I have had both good and bad experiences here. This was our 3rd time at Beer Baron and it was another good experience for us. We sat outside at a bar top looking out so we could people watch. This seating wasn't the most comfortable, but since it was just my husband and I grabbing some dinner it was alright. I would not want to sit here for a long period of time, or if the entire bar top is full; it would be tight. The food here is always delicious which is why we keep coming back! Hopefully all of our future experiences will be good ones. We can't why to try more delicious dishes!

Outstanding attention and service and gorgeous restaurant and bar. However, the bar program is all over the place. The name of the place is Beer Baron, but the beer selection was mediocre. The place should be called Whiskey Baron instead. Our group of four kept trying to figure out what the place was all about, but we kept getting confused. The cocktails are too fancy, in my opinion, with too many ingredients, trying to be trendy, I guess? I think the place needs to figure out what they are and stop trying to be everything to everybody. The food was delicious, by the way. I think it has GREAT potential, and I would give it another chance.

Didn’t blow my skirt up. No bang for your buck. Lackluster food menu. Food was meh. Staff not very knowledgeable. Chain restaurant. Surprisingly small inside. Good looking bar. Lots of whiskey.

The chicken and waffles were delicious! The meat was tender, not over cooked with a crispy outside! The waffle was great too, the waitress was very accommodating when I requested to be seated outside, answered all my questions and brought me the meal and check promptly. I’ll be back again for the beer and whiskey menu.

We didn't have the best experience but I can't figure out why. My cocktail didn't arrive until dessert. My salad had some icky produce in it. And service was slow on a seemingly slow night. There were some good dishes peppered in throughout but little things like not having utensils and having to ask for water several times got annoying. But it's a cute place and having been before I've had the opposite experience (good food and good service) so I'm thinking maybe it was an off night. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Made an 8 o’clock reservation for a dinner date with my husband on a Sunday night and we arrived early. The hostess stood at bar staring at us while talking to the bartender. Ignoring the please wait to be seated sign we finally sat ourselves at which point she got the hint and brought us menus and told us the server would be over shortly. We’d been here once before and were looking forward to having the same dishes and drinks again because they were delicious only to be told by the waitress that the kitchen was already closed and if we wanted any drinks we had to order them ourselves from the bartender. It was such a disappointment. Poor customer service and a staff who doesn’t know what they’re doing or obviously doesn’t care. The food and drinks are probably the only decent thing about this place.

Went on a double date and had a good time! It is a full whiskey bar. Food was delicious! The boys enjoyed the burger! I got the spicy chicken sandwich which surprised me how amazing it was!

Beer Baron is a wonderful new place in downtown Santa Rosa that we have been to at least 5 times now. We like all their food options and the drinks are great too! The remodel of this space is fabulous and the indoor and outdoor seating is terrific. (Love the outdoor space with heaters for the colder days.) This will be a regular stop for us when headed to downtown. The wait staff is very helpful and attentive. We have had Cassidy twice now and he is terrific.
