Was a small after work thing with a few co-workers. We just came for drinks and appetizers.
The size of the appetizers were a joke. We thought we ordered off a kiddie menu. The crack wings were the only thing worth getting. Drinks were good and the appetizers tasted good but laughable. Like others have said service was horrible.

You've got to try the black eye pea hummus! To die for! We went on a chilly summer night but decided to sit outdoors because it's more romantic! We were given not only a propane heater but blankets to wrap around us to keep us warm! How accommodating is that! Food and drinks were fantastic! The scenery gorgeous. Trees were lit up, surrounded by beautiful buildings. I will definitely return!

Made a reservation to celebrate friend’s birthday
The waiter looked like why am I here drinks were ordered but were told they are out of that particular beer
Then chicken sandwich was order and were told out of then salmon sandwich was ordered told once again out
It would have made more sense as a server to advise what is the kitchen out of before asking us what we wanted to have
His attitude was so lousy that we just asked for our check and left without eating went next door to another place and had a fantastic food and service
For a new place looking to lure in new customer 🤔🤔🤔not doing a very good job 🤔

Great pre-theater place. Glad I found it as there isn’t much selection in Westwood. Walking distance to the Geffen Playhouse. Try the Banana Beer. Made in house.

Great ambiance and the perfect location for a meal after (or before) a show at the Geffen Playhouse! The food was fantastic, the choices were ideal for parties with selective eaters, and attention to detail by the staff was first class.

Food and beer was amazing when it was actually brought to the table! Service was lousy, never received appetizers or drinks that were ordered...

I would definitely go back for beer or two but absolutely not for the food. I felt the food was extremely overpriced for the quality.
The biscuits were doughy, the buffalo cauliflower was nothing spectacular (highly rec by staff), basically cauliflower with Franks red hot sauce poured on top.
Couple of people had shrimp and grits - shrimp was overcooked and gritty 'as if they were not deveined', salmon on the kale salad was mushy.
Atmosphere was great and our server was EXCELLENT.
Was even more disappointing because we were taking a business guest out for great food and beer. He enjoyed the beer.

Fun new brewhouse. We were there the night before they served their own beers, so we were only able to have guest beers. Good food but pricey. A little loud for my liking (music). Cool building and nice staff.

Dropped in for a quick bite and drink before a movie and it was terrific. Our server was delightful and the food was pretty good. I'd definitely return!

The food and the service were wonderful. This, however, is a "hopping" place - the noise level was to the roof, perfect for a high-energy evening, not great if you'd like to actually talk to your table-mates inside. The outdoor seating would have been better for my party of 4. That said, the food choices were interesting and delicious (one of my party, who doesn't like spice, however, would have liked a heads-up on the hot spiciness of the waxed been side order...). We will definitely come here again - the beers were delicious; we have to try them all!

Delicious food and great service. Our appetisers were a bit slow to come out, and they treated us to cocktails on the house. Highly recommend!

I had dinner with a colleague from out of town. The service was great, the server gave us lots of information about what was available. I Have eaten at Broxton a few times now and have enjoyed it each time.

A nice welcome, friendly enthusiastic service, OK food...this Westwood landmark is worth visiting, especially if you are not very interested in the food and can tolerate a high noise level.

Great beer selection, interesting food options. Salmon was perfectly cooked and I'm still pondering how to get a beautiful char on broccolini at home like I ate at Broxton. Would definitely return!

Wonderful food (Mohawk buffalo broccoli and their classic hamburger). Great drinks (Moscow Mule, although they had a great looking beer selection from their onsite brewery and other brewers). Will definitely let my friends know to stop when they’re in the LA/Westwood area!

Very limited seating, when upstairs is closed.
The food was good, but I’d like to try some other dishes and drinks.

Loved the food, and it was great because we had a variety of eaters in our group, including Vegans. But the service was slow and our waiter wasn't attentive.

This place is EXCELLENT!!!

The menu is simple, the food is incredibly fresh, nicely seasoned and beautifully executed.


I highly recommend the Fried Chicken with spicy honey, vinegar slaw and AMAZING grits.

Had one of the brews and it was GREAT!!! Love what they did with the space that was previously occupied by Yamato .

This place is perfection for what they are trying to achieve. Perfect location, great concept and a menu that’s not overly ambitious .

Will be cool to see what happens when all the brew equipment is fully up and running.

Great place!! Definitely check it out.

Food was really good, but the service was not very consistent. Plus we set outside (we had our dog with us - great for dog lovers), but their heaters outside were broken.

A great new addition to Westwood, with a fun menu and local beer choices. The noise level, however, makes conversation a challenge. Great decor and lively place with happy servers. I wish the new establishment well.
