First visit in about 15 years for Fathers Day. Not crowded on a Sunday afternoon about 4:00. Very limited food menu, and donít even suggest that you donít want onions with your steak. The beer selection is outstanding - next time Iím going only for the beer. Used to be much more low key, but the selection was much more limited. Not sure which I prefer.

Small bar but a decent amount of seating for the space. 30+ taps and a reserve list of 20 beers. Chatty and buzzy crowd but not loud. Pricing higher than what might be the norm elsewhere in California. Couldnít bring the kids given the bar licence. Didnít eat bu the menu looked very good.

This place is quite cramped! The tables are community tables, so anyone can sit anywhere, as long as thereís room. Typically, though, people tend to give others their space, and donít fuck with that arrangement. A guy was leaving, as my co-worker and I arrived, so it worked out perfectly. The tap list was insane for such a small place. The food was surprisingly good, but my portion of fish was a little on the small side; however, I was REALLY hungry, as I just worked out, so Iíll chalk it up to me just being really hungry. Anyways, this was a nice place, and was a little loud, yes, but altogether a great experience, and Iíd go back.

Best burger ever!!!! Ever! Usually I endure the food at beer bar for the beer, here the world class beer selection is just gravy to that burger. I live on the other side of town but if Iím west of the 405 I do my best to go to Fathers Office. Culver Location is good too but I like the OG.

Stopped in here for dinner last night, I have wanted to check this place out for years now glad I could finally stop in. Atmosphere is pretty laid back but busy at the same time. Tables are shared amongst groups so they are hard to come by. We got lucky and two people left the bar so we snagged the seats right away. Service was solid. They were always around to get me a beer but they werenít the most approachable people either. Quality was top notch. My food was high quality and my beers were all served in the proper glasses so no complaints there. Selection was killer. Abyss, ßucaba etc. on-tap were all pleasant surprises that I was able to partake in. I had heard nothing but amazing thing about the burgers so I knew what I was getting when we walked in and I was not let down, it was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Prices were a touch high but I was expecting that going in. Overall an awesome place to stop in Santa Monica, I would return in a heartbeat.

Crowded place, they do not allow anyone under 21 to enter even for food. Standing room only at 6:30pm on a Friday was ridiculous. Tap list was impressive though only new/special stuff is listed on the chalk boards. You need to get the large menu from the bartender magically. A bit hard to put in our order. Food is supposedly amazing, but there is no where to eat it and no way to get a table besides hawking others. Pretty stupid set up that makes the air in the place food of eyeing, staring, judging, hating, conniving. Some special beers on tap and all were in good condition. Would like to come back for food, but given the amount of amazing beer and burger places in LA, this place is substitutable.

A couple of quality sessions on a recent visit to SM and came away very favorably impressed. Small and cozy but with a nicely unvarnished woody feel, it came across as unpretentiously elegant. Vibe was good, from the super cool dude at the door, the mix of neighborhood regs and beer nerds, and a general conviviality (as always: if my non-beer nerd family likes it, itís good independent of sudsy merit). Kinda crowded, and the burger wasnít *that* good, but hard not to score this one very highly. Loads and loads of terrific beers available, it goes without saying. Really enjoyed it.

Wow. Love this place. First, the burger is ridiculous. Iíve had some top notch burgers but this one is up there. A must try. The taps are very solid. It was easy to get excited about the selection being an East Coast guy. Itís a clean looking place and had no proble finding a seat at 5:30 on a Thursday night. Will count down the days until I can hit up this spot again for a burger and a (few) beer(s).
