decent beer, crappy salads – I wasn't going to bother writing a review about this place because the beers are really good, but then I had to eat there a second time, and was utterly disappointed. The salads are extremely mediocre -- I had wilted ice berg lettuce TWO times in a row -- which is impressive considering it takes weeks for that kind of lettuce to lose any crisp. The calamari had a good fry, but the actual squid part was pretty gross - very rubbery, no flavor - and came with a red sauce with horseradish. The fried chicken was overly friend and was very dried out. At a small restaurant, I'd over look these things, but old lettuce and fried food that's gross? even mcdonalds can get this right! And for 1/3 of the price! That said, if you just want to go have a few beers and fries and maybe catch the game, this place has a friendly bar.
GOOD FOOD & FUN – We wandered in to this restaurant for a quick lunch, and loved it. We went back the next day for the fabulous fish & chips. The atmosphere is fun, relaxing and the service is great. We ended up getting t-shirts to take home with us! We'll definitely go back next time we're in SB!
Decent food - above average beer but not great
Service was good considering restaurant was very crowded.
Asked for help with souvenir shirt and my waitress was reapetedly put off by the people with access - when my buddy asked the owner about it - he said he didn't have one even though it was obvious he never even checked
Maybe my money wasn't good enough for them
