A decent restaurant with super views of Half Moon bay harbor. Nice to sit and watch the paddle boarders and kayakers out in the water having fun. Food was typical brewhouse food, not terrible but not great. Service was excellent.

Nice spot with several fresh beer from the tap. Food is good. Service is good and friendly. Try the artichokes as an appetizer. The Ipa is good, especially on a warm day.

For what it is, it's nearly perfect: casual, well-cheffed food from burgers to seafood entrees, great pub food (parmesan fries and deep-fried artichoke hearts), and the best fish tacos in the area (in our opinion). Add to all this consistently good service, home brews, and...More

Get there for a meal on the patio. Fire pits, drinks, calamari, fish and chips or burgers. Live music at end of the week. Can't ask for a better way to wind down! Lots of happy people and happy, social dogs!
