Great craft beer! My sister and I ordered two different brews and they were both fantastic, extra-impressive because we're a tough audience; she doesn't drink beer much and I'm a craft beer fan/snob. Our beers were so tasty we were still talking about it the next day. We didn't eat there so no comment about that. Really nice server, comfortable... More

This place was 10 out of 10! We sat out on the patio, they turned on the overhead heaters for us. They brought out water and treats for our two dogs. We did a flight of their beers, followed by a couple of pints - all very good. The fried pickles and salad were great! Fish tacos were some of... More

We had the beer sampler and appetizers. The beer was great and the calamari was perfectly cooked. Our server was wonderful.

Family member with children and everyone found something to order on the menu. I liked my salad but a couple people in the group did not like their Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches very well. Good beer.

My husband and I were in Monterey on New Years Eve and it was rainy and gross outside. Of course all the football games were on and my husband wanted to watch them due to the weather being so yucky. This is the perfect place. There aren't many places on the warf that have tv's with volume on because they... More

We ate here every day for breakfast when we stayed at the Portola Hotel because Jacks was closed for remodeling. We also had one lunch and one dinner here as well. The food was good, the service mostly good and I liked the menu selections.

The beer was really good. Get the flight so you can try their unique brews. Large place, friendly staff, clean. The food is ok, not the best not the worst but I think you need to know that going in. It's not high end or fancy, more like sport bar type stuff. The kids options, surprisingly, were pretty good and... More

I arrived at Monterey at night after traveling all day, and this restaurant was conveniently located near the hotel. This is a large pub with all the accouterments of this type of restaurant. The Buffalo chili was very good, as well as the Carl's Back Yard Burger. Complemented with fries and onion rings, it was a veritable feast. And the... More

Do yourself a favor and order the calamari. Best I've ever had! Only $6 @ happy hour! The house brewed IPA, and Dbl IPA are on point!
