Went to see a game, good amount of TVs, We had the Pineapple White beer and was very good. We had burgers and they were very nice and since it was Monday they were 3 dollars off, not bad. Good service and the Warriors won ;)

This was a repeat visit, actually on St Patrick’s Day where they had not terned the pub into party central unlike some. We had an enjoyable few drinks and something to eat. Service was a little hit and miss, but nothing that can't be overlooked. Certainly a SB fav.

Six of us stopped by for lunch after a protest march in Santa Barbara, and ate at the bar-height table by the front door. We enjoyed the vibe, as well as the variety of beers on draft. The waitress brought a few sample sips out, which helped us choose our beers (and it was nice that the most undecided among... More

Poor menu choice, poor delivery and execution of dishes, uninterested waitress, I could go on. Worst dinner experience in Santa Barbara by far. Avoid.

We stopped in to try the beer while visiting and really enjoyed it! We had a few apps as well and had a great time! The craft beer is on point.

Nice selection of beers and decent menu but we only stopped by for some wings and a couple of drinks to watch march madness. Service was good, loud crowd-lots of screens for any game you'd want.

The Brewery has a rustic brink and wood look, with an actual working brew house. They make their beer onsite, which is super cool. My favorite was their Rincon Red and Old Town Nut Brown. I had there fish tacos with black beans and they were excellent. My husband had the salmon and it was cooked perfectly. We checked out... More
