Enjoy a reservation in our dining room or for larger parties call in to grab space in our amazing beer garden or plan a private event.

Magnolia Dogpatch is an independent brewery, full-service restaurant, beer garden, and event space where guests can enjoy a diverse selection of craft beer and modern American fare inspired by San Francisco’s rich culinary heritage. For over 20 years, Magnolia Brewing has been a part of San Francisco’s burgeoning beer scene, producing beloved and award-winning ales in two historic locations: the heart of the Haight and, more recently, the Dogpatch neighborhood. We honor the brewing traditions that fueled our beginnings, introducing new interpretations of classic styles and time-honored serving techniques such as cask conditioned ales and wood-aged beers. It's the way beer, food and hospitality come together that makes a good brewery and restaurant an essential part of the fabric of a community.

Absolutely love coming here! The service is fantastic, even though we were a large and indecisive group. You're also allowed to bring dogs!

My fiance and I wanted to do something a little more casual for Valentine's this year, and we knew we would have our dog with us. Booked a reservation and asked to be put in the back indoor beer garden where they allowed dogs. Service was great, the steak was delicious and the beer was perfect! Recommend the steak frites with a cloud cover double IPA! Hard to find a brewery/restaurant that allows dogs, so would highly recommend this spot!

I loved the relaxed vibe at Magnolia. The food is delicious - try the cracked felafel salad, it’s amazing! The flatbread with burrata was also really good. It’s a fun menu and the restaurant is beautiful so would definitely go back again.

In all fairness, I visited for a New Year's Day brunch. They seemed to have about 30 people total, but somehow service felt as though they were slammed. Their "limited brunch menu" consisted of mostly egg scrambles. I was disappointed that they didn't have a pancake or french toast option. Getting items was difficult: I asked for a coffee and it came without any cream/milk/sugar alongside it. When I asked for those items, only milk was given. Same goes for the other members at my table. Their interior aesthetic is gorgeous, and I know they normally have phenomenal service and food options, but this was quite a letdown.

Fun, casual place. Nice that they have great beer, but also have a bar. Food was good. Messed up on our order (avocado on salad for person with an allergy), but food and service were very good.

Magnolia was a pleasant surprise. Great service and decor, and the food was fantastic. I have food allergies and not only were they helpful and accommodating, I didn't feel like I had to sacrifice choices. Nice wines as well. Would love to go back.

We don’t get to the city very often. Magnolia Brewing was a great casual dinner before the Elton John concert. Service was remarkably good — not only our waiter, but the whole staff.

Had a reservation on open table for a special occasion with family in town. Arrived on time only for them to say “sorry we double booked and have no tables for you”... even though there was another open table for 4 open right in front us. Seriously baffled, was it our appearance or race? They clearly preferred the other table of 4 that hadn’t shown up yet.

On top of it, the “manager” got nasty and hostile with me, to the point my guests saw the exchange and walked up to stop his barking at me, saying they didn’t want to be there anymore... Luckily walked next door to a better place- Serpentine. They too were booked for the night but after explaining what happened next door, they kindly adjusted and seated us at a table. Wonderful service at Serpentine, joke of a management at Mongolia. Can’t wait to see this place and joke of a “brewery” shut down.

The waiter forgot to put our order in and they were short staffed. Comped a drink, but it was still a very disappointing experience considering I’ve had a good time there before

The experience was great other than finding the windows of our 2 week old car smashed. Nothing to do with the restaurant of course but we’ll be super careful parking next time!

THe food was very yummy, but the value appears to have declined since our last visit which was shortly after they reopened. The large caesar salad was the smallest "large" I've every experienced. We even checked with the waiter to see if he heard "large". The steak entree was that - just steak at $28. They are definitely catering to the tech crowd not locals :(
