Stopped here while staying in Concord and visiting local NPS sites. House beers were okay. The food was excellent, but a main course and burger took over 45 minutes to come out of the kitchen. The whole experience was marred by terrible service. Forgotten drinks, appetizer order not put in, and little in the way of an apology. Servers seem... More

Have been going to this place for years. They make consistently good beer and have another dozen guest beers on tap as well. Lots to choose from on the menu and food consistently good as well. Give it a try think you will enjoy it. Close to Concord BART.

Came here again for business meal. I like the comfortable feel and good service. Food is good pub food including wings, calamari, salads, fish and chips, sandwiches. There are a lot of things that are good, but the fish and chips are my go to if not having a salad.

E.J. Phair Brewing Company and Alehouse is a brewpub located at Todos Santos Plaza in downtown Concord. It's a great spot for local brews on tap, basic food needs and it's an ideal starting point for a nice walk afterwards. The street corner location offers nice views of the town and park; outside seating does not allow dogs.

EJ Phair is a great place to have a beer and watch a game, and an even better place to meet up with friends on the patio for some great food, excellent beer selection, and for people like me a nice selection of wines by the glass. I can find something here for every mood...a big salad or grilled fish... More

I can't tell you how happy I was to see jagerschnitzel and Spaetzle on the menu. I was extremely impressed with the portion and the taste. The spaetzle was far from the usual ho hum, bland dough. This was a light, crispy, and delicious side that complimented the schnitzel perfectly. The schnitzel was cooked to perfection, crispy outside, moist inside... More

Came here with co-workers on a cold, frosty day before Christmas; very lively and festive inside. Our server was personable and attentive. I have to say, the "house" white wine was...ehhh.just OK. I realize it wasn't Edna Valley and that I am in, primarily, a "beer joint"..but I've had far better house wine in funky, dive Chinese joints. Had the... More

We came here for a lunch birthday. 2 of us had the fish and chips. Really crunchy breading, which is key on fish and chips. My fish was a little over cooked, but still good. The others in our party had chicken wings, which she liked. Another had the belt with avocado and turkey. She liked it. The fries were... More

We came here by chance. I was grateful, because this is a cozy place to come for a drink with friends or dinner after work. We came and sat at the big picnic table. It's great for a big party.

This was the food stop prior to the Hop Grenade ( next door ). They also have a good selection of alcoholic beverages. The food is tasty, ample portions, and pairs well with the beverages. The decor is simple, yet clean.They also have outdoor seating which seems to be very popular for lunch during warm months.
