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. We had chicken wings and calamari, which were both good. One of my coworkers had fish and chips, which she... More

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.

We went to this place based on a recommendation and we are happy that we did. They have a good beer selection which includes rotating guest taps and they also brew their own. The food was really good for being bar food. If you are looking for a good selection of beers and decent food and good atmosphere then I... More

Didn't know anything about this place and left a fan! Several classic German dishes on the menu, but also features more traditional pub food with burgers, fish & chips, etc. I sampled other at my table and everything was amazing. You won't break the bank by a long shot and come hungry! On top of everything else, the service was... More

E.J. Phair brews they're own beer and they do a great job of it. The burgers are great. The fries are perfect. They have a huge selection of beers other than the ones they make. The Wine list will not disappoint.

I'm a frequent visitor of this excellent restaurant , unpretentious although of good solid quality . The service is always courteous and efficient . I recommend the soups and the different salads , along with a the selection of refreshing beers . I enjoy sitting outside where one can contemplate life in Plaza todos los santos .... SALUD !!

We went because they were supposed to have great fish and chips. It didn't resemble anything like that though the fish was properly cooked. It tasted okay. The parmesan garlic fries we substituted were good. The location is really nice and we ate outside, which is wonderful. BUT... the service was not good. We were kind of ignored and on... More

Have been coming here for years. Nice location downtown with patio seating available. Good beer, casual menu has been the same for years and could use a change.
