The beer selection is off the hook. The man serving our table is an actual beer drinker, so it was nice to have honest opinions of certain drinks. Fried pickles were on point, and the mustard served with the pretzels is delicious. Come here and enjoy a very easygoing atmosphere, genuine staff and delicious food/beer pairing. We will be day.

Nice atmosphere but food was a joke and extremely overpriced for quality and quantity delivered. Beer list was good.

It's hard to get a seat in this bar/restaurant with the limited seating. Get here early so you can get some belgium beer from their enormous beer menu. If you are hungry, they have one of the best burgers in the city. Also notable items include the scallops and the bone marrow (though they don't always have it).

Food: 5 Everyone talks about the beer list (which, of course, is fantastic and even includes an informative glossary), but the food is good too. I got a fried chicken sandwich with fries, and everything was good. The fried chicken sandwich was definitely one of the better fried chicken sandwiches I've had, and that's saying a lot - I luuurv fried chicken. The beer, of course, is excellent. If you're overwhelmed or if you want a recommendation, ask for one and you'll probably find something great. If you haven't had Pliny the Elder yet and you like IPA's, this place usually has it on tap. Service: 5 My server was helpful and checked in unobtrusively (which can be a pet peeve of mine with servers - can't you see we're having a conversation here?) but made sure we were taken care of. She even got my boyfriend a taste of a second sour beer that he had been thinking of, because she probably saw that we were only going to get one. As we were leaving, she was putting away an umbrella for an older couple so it wouldn't get in their way in the small restaurant. Great service.

Get the roast! This is one of my favorite places in SF. an excellent rotating beer menu with a staff knowledgeable about beer pairing. The food is excellent but their daily roast is always head and shoulders better than anything on the menu. For an appetizer, I recommend the pretzels with their homemade mustard. For dessert, you've got to try their beer float. They don't take reservations so try to go on an off day. It can be kind of loud inside, so I prefer the outside tables (there are heaters, so it doesn't really get cold).

Good bears. Slightly miffed as to why you couldn't sit outside on a sunny day with just a bear, without having to eat. Good place nonetheless.
