Just returned from the Clubhouse Bistro in the Crown Plaza in Foster City and drinks were strong, food good, and service even better. Go there during happy hour and enjoy it even more.

Staying at the Crowne for business and came down to the bar for beer and a sandwich. Good sized bar with a large main bar, booths, and tables plus a couple of private areas if you want to reserve them for a party. Lots of big screen TVs, friendly staff, and good food. Had the Hot Pastrami sandwich with fries.... More

I'm tickled that you brought up the Hot Pastrami sandwich as we just took photos of it today for our revised menu. Feedback such as your's has not only pushed us to change vendors for better quality, cut, and substsance, but also how we build it. I would now say that it is "Instagram Worthy." Luscious pastrami stacked in a... More

I think I reviewed this bistro on my last visit out to the West Coast, a year or so ago. It's a great sports bar, extremely popular with the local crowd. Pub food at its best and the same staff is still there, which is a plus. Large TV'S overwhelm the walls with many different activities going on simultaneously. Great... More

This is the place I was looking for in Foster City. Its a pub with awesome food and amazing drinks. What adds to the pleasure is the misic and the DJ. The dance floor burns after 10 o clock and leaves everyone frooving to the DJ's beats. Spent 2 weekend nights here and loved every bit of it. The bartender... More

Excited to hear that you notice the "beautiful people, delicious food, splendid drinks and crazy music." "Crazy" good I hope as we rotate between 4 DJs who play 80s, 90, top hits, and feel good music. Oh, and if you're thinking of staying overnight on those club nights again, we now offer special room rates less than $99/night. More

Great place to listen to oldies and modern hits when it converts to a club after 9PM on weekends. During the evening, you're still able to order from the menu, as well as full drink and bar service throughout. DJ's are excellent, there is a sports bar feel to it with TV's showing videos and sports, and waitresses are friendly,... More

Bar has several TVs and is a nice place and convenient if staying at the hotel. Nice selection of beer on draft, but very disappointed in the food. The chicken nachos and sliders weren't good at all.
