Busy bar and restaurant (30 min wait on a thurs night) - so very popular. You can have the full menu at the bar - easier access to the ales! As often with brew pubs not too may lighter ales (i.e. under 5%) so go easy on the pints!

We visited after going to several other places in the bay area. They offered a few selections you can only get there. We ordered a couple of appetizers and enjoyed people watching

Great place with some excellent beers to choose from. The food was really good too. Not much choice for vegetarians but I am sure the team would help with dishes that would be suitable. The team were very friendly. We went on a Tuesday night but I imagine at the weekend you would want to book as I you tell... More

This is a fun, local "watering hole." Met some friends for beers and burgers (try the Reuben, too) and really delicious onion rings. Nice to find a bar with great food. This place consistently has really good food -- sometimes, it is really crowded with slower service (expected). One of my new, favorite stops in the City!

I love this place. Hit it up every single time I go to the bay area. Spending new years there and will be sure to stopping by. Tuna melt and a hop crisis for this guy!

Love this place! A place I always try to visit when I´m in San Francisco. The beers are great - best in the city in my opinion, food is excellent and the service is great! It´s also located close to the At&t park, so it´s a great place before and after a ballgame.

Met a few friends for drinks and ended up having food too. If you like your craft beers it has a wonderful selection and all those I had were really really good. There isn't a huge amount of seating, so a tad crowded when busy, but that is the only fault. It is well worth the trek to visit this... More

Lunch for four of us on a Saturday - it was a bit cold in there but once we got a drink and some food it was fine. Decent enough food - very typical diner style. Great selection of craft beers. Service is friendly. Definitely better when there is a game on but still a worthwhile place

The beer is great and the pickles are a 10. Loved the atmosphere and food only lacking in the relationship area. Service is wonderful but shared.

I see the mixed reviews online, but we enjoyed our experience... We stopped in to catch the 2nd half of the Warriors game, grab some food and try some beers. We were able to get a table. They have several big screen tv's as well. The atmosphere is lively. We did a tasting flight of six for 12 bucks.... The... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
