A nice yet small pub in Santa Monica with an awesome burger. The beer selection was great, with about two dozen taps and several bottles. The place is self-service, and a long queue can build up for getting beers/food. Did I say the burger was awesome? Other food choices sounded good, but the burger was recommended.

Went here for my bday and overall my experience here was mediocre. Very tiny place with limited seating, and even less room for standing. Eventually after standing in a long line I was finally able to order a beer from an unhelpful bartender, and found a seat after loitering for a while, but that did not help the experience much.The food was decent but somewhat overpriced.

Crowded, limited seating, loud...the noise seems to become amplified because of the small cramped quarters. Grabbed a Pliny and left quickly. Bartenders didnít seem to want to be there and were put off when someone requested a beer. Wonít revisit.

Been here twice. Last time was Saturday night. Nice selection. A lot from California. Prices on tap range from $6 to $10. Place was packed, but bartenders were quick in getting beer, wine and food out. Bartenders definitely know their beer. A lot of people order their famous hamburger. I had it once. It is good and worth trying. On this night we had the stuffed mission figs. They were good.

Small but interesting place. OK beer selection Food is expensive and doesnít match the price. Can be very crowded. A little snobbish.

A great little pub located in something that resembles a resident neighborhood. Fantastic food and a great selection on tap. Try the burger when you are there.

I hate giving a place such a low score when I had amazing beer and the best burger EVER!
But the attitude of these people makes me not want to go back. But I will.

There is something to be said for a place that was doing it before the trend and kept on doing it right all along. Snobby...? Maybe but I donít care. Itís a great looking place with delicious beer and food.
I guess if I walked in off the street not knowing anything about FO I might have a different impression, but Iíve been going for years and I know what to expect.

Best burger Iíve ever had. there, i said it! Beer is fantastic with a great selection and lots of variety. it was cool long before craft beer was in these parts.
So, why only 86? The attitude. Iím not a beer expert or a beer snob, i just love yummy beer and this place makes me feel like Iím not good enough because Iím not sure of the hop variety in my IPA. Booo
Itís just not that comfortable, and comfort is the number one thing for me when Iím drinking beer.
Iíll go back but itís not the most satisfying place.
