I actually would like to rate them 3 1/2 - somewhere between "Average" and "Very Good". But alas... are you reading, Trip Advisor mechanics? This is a very nice place to go - clean, open, mostly modern-ish feel. And everyone was very nice and friendly. The bartender was a little dour in that sort of Millennial "I'd rather not serve...

The beer is good! I like Table 42 Red, smooth and tasty! The menu is varied, pizzas, salads, sandwiches, I like the pizzas! Lots of TVs to catch your favorite game or sit out on the patio with friends and a couple of pitchers! Great neighborhood bar!

A light dinner was our fare: chili and Greek chicken salad. Both were very good. The Fall Manhattan, on the other hand, was a bad choice on my part -- not so good. But that's a matter of personal preference, so perhaps others would have liked it. The service was very good as well -- prompt, professional and courteous. This... More

I have been here before and something draws me back. Only to be disappointed. the level of service here is average at best. the quality of food poor and way over priced. there are too many other choices to bring me back again. Sorry.

We have enjoyed Hollister for many a lunch and dinner, but never tried their Sunday Football Brunch. We had a great breakfast. brunch, enjoyed some good craft beers, and watched some great NFL games in a rather noisy crowd.

Went there on a Sunday night. Great fish tacos and the duck fat fries are really good. I liked that you could order beer in a small glass since I'm never able to finish a pint!

Hollister Brew Co. was the original craft brewery in the Goleta area and still has by far the largest and most diverse selection of house brews in the region. Typically their board shows 16-20 brews ranging in style from light Blondes into Pales and several IPA's. Malt fans don't despair they have a great Red (Table 42) a good Brown... More

We recently moved here and are walking distance from HBC. My husband's new favorite! Plenty of brews on tap to try and friendly service that is quick and remembers the details.

This place is your standard brew pub, but it's a nice place to go, the food is good and a good selection of choices and the beer is good too.
