like the others have said nice place that is open and airy. service was a bit slow. the beer is good, the place was packed on a Friday night. the temperature of the place was a little cold, as was the food... had two aps and both came out cold so we sent them back. had the bangors and mash and steak. both were lukewarm at best. also if you like parsley this is the place to go because they put it on all dishes and lots of it.

Liked this place a lot! Pseudo-industrial vibe, open and airy. Two garage doors for the (rare) nice weather. Courteous (if not overly prompt) service. Chatted with the owner - very fun! Food is well priced and delish!

Very friendly and charming staff in a very friendly and charming setting.
Itís off the beaten path in a town that for a lot of us is itself off the beaten path. Getting out to the quiet side of Bremerton feels like a bit of a haul, even for me--and I grew up in the south sound. But once you get here, you find a place thatís completely serious about serving you good beer and food in a relaxed, informal, welcoming setting.
It might have been built as an auto garage--concrete floors, roll-up doors. Thereís a nice dining room that you can tell is a dining room mainly because there are tables and chairs there. Past them, thereís a bar. Off to the side, itís all big beer-making machines. Turn the other way, bathrooms.
So, head for a table or the bar. The staff are so warm and friendly. Seattleites, brace yourselves: youíll make actual small talk with other humans. Youíll even enjoy it. There are 5 taps given over to house beers--all worth drinking, so if the style is in your wheelhouse, belly on up and order one. There are about 8-10 guest taps, all well chosen, all west coast, mostly Washington.
The food is fantastic pub grub. I had a hot pastrami sandwich and immediately wanted seconds--not because I was still hungry, though. Came with warm german potato salad, which is...what potato salad should be, at least the way they do it here, anyway. The bite of pizza I had was pretty awful, just cheap cheese, spongy crust, and canned tomato sauce. But the soup was delectable. And the dessert was out of this world. The bartender strongly recommended the ravioli, though we had plenty of food without getting into noodles. Later, she said "no, actually, your dessert wasnít a double. Thatís the normal serving size. Any dish where weíre not limited by bread of buns, we try to make the serving size really generous." They definitely succeed at that.
Iíll absolutely be back for more beer and food. Great spot.
