We have not been here in several years but remember that the beers were good, and the food was only so so. Service was OK, but nothing special. However, since this has been several years things could have changed.

We went there once for a late lunch. On the plus side they did have great sweet potato fries. I had the veggie burger (the only vegetarian option) and it was fine. My husband's burger was also ok. The arrangement of tables is a bit...More

Family decided to stop here for beers while on a walk. Asked if a particular beer was vegan. Waitress didn't know, came back to say that it wasn't. Rather rude guy riding his bike out the front door said none of the beers are vegan....More

The food is pretty typical bar/brewery fare, the beer is not to my liking at all. The prices are on the high side, but it is Marin. The service (on a not-so-busy night) was pretty slow and inattentive. There are plenty of other places nearby...More
