Oh crap, how have I not rated this yet? Iíve been here a number of times for a lunch break during Bistro festivals. The short version is that the food is pretty good, the service decent, the beer meh, and the prices bad. No idea on the parking situation but Iíve never driven here so all I can say is that the parking situation all around downtown Hayward is pretty bad.

They have a patio which is nice and they always have a seasonal beer on tap but most of their seasonals are different versions of their fruit wheat. They have one or two stronger beers they release throughout the winter but thatís about it, aside from their half a dozen normal beers. Even though there isnít much here for me Iíll likely stop in again at some point since it is just a block from the Bistro.

In downtown Hayward just up the street from The Bistro. The place was darkly lit on a rainy weekend night. Not a huge crowd, but a handful of people at tables and at the bar. Kind of an old west feel. Bartenders were friendly enough, service was quick. The beers were okay at best. Price was decent ($6-something for 5 samples). Okay place for a few ticks, but not some place I need to go back to.

Each time Iím in the area this place gets out prioritized until now. Very happy to finally visit. Right here on B-Street thereís loads of patio seating and some cool rustic oak dťcor inside. I had the hot pastrami on rye and it was dynamite. Tried only the ďon premiseĒ brewed beer and it was ok. Make sure to take a trip toward the rest rooms where their maybe 10 barrel brewhouse is located as well as a small fermenter farm. Nice set up. Iíll definitely be back to try more of their menu and more of their beer offerings made here. Friendly staff and friendly atmosphere.

We were trying to eat here right before catching a movie across the street. The wait staff was very helpful and got us seated. The ambiance was pretty standard I guess, nothing special. The burger with blue cheese was pretty good. Seemed like a average value. But the beers are really hit and miss. D of the 5 beer sampler and 3 were good. Overall, not bad,not great.

This place is close to the Bistro, so I usually head out here for a bite to eat during the beer festivals for a breather. Itís usually pretty busy but Iíve never had to wait for a table or service. The food is decent and the beers are Ok. Nice place inside and out on the patio. They seem to have a reputation even among non craft drinkers as I always hear this place mentioned when Iím talking to people about the Bay Area beer scene. I guess because theyíve been around forever. The beer is forgettable, but a good stop for some ticís if thatís your thing.

Stopped in here for a late lunch on 8/7/10. Place has a good feel to it in terms of both cleanliness and clientele. The service was good. They had 6 beers on the sampler. Nothing extraordinary, but decent. Tried their pizza known as the Wrangler and it was very good. Worth walking across the street for after the Bistroís IPA Fest.

Decent beers and good appetizers. I had a sampler to try some of their brews and my buddies had some of their beers and we had an appetizer tray. We sat outside and had to wait a long time as our waitress forgot us several times.

Average beer and good food. Right down the street from the Bistro and they never enter any beers in the many fests the Bistro holds. Curious? The pizza is pretty good.

The beer is pretty good. Donít expect the employees to know anything about beer or a beer experience. The food have gotten much better recently as they have gone away from the fancy íCaliforniaí style and went to a more bar type food options. Sure do miss the days way back when they had the dart boards.

A nice place downtown Hayward. Great Pizza and nice selection of food. Some strange beer selections like the pumpkin ale, and most of them I like.
