Great little place right on the coast. About 6-8 of their own beers on tap. the 2 I had were both pretty good. Food was outstanding!

Visited on a Sunday late afternoon with the family along with just about everyone else that was headed back to the city from the coast. Busy, busy. Wait was only about 30 minutes @ 3:00pm, and the outdoor seating overlooking the bay is fantastic. Believe there were 8-10 on-draft options, of which we sampled 4 (Hefe, íSquirrelí belgian pale, Rye Pale and Tunnel Vision). All were just íOKí, but placed in the atmosphere will get an extra point. Food and location are standouts and portions are ginormous. We didnít feel like eating for many hours afterwards. Fish tacos, for example, was essentially 1/2 a pound of halibut dwarfing the tortilla.

Nice sunny day, great atmosphere. Service a little slow after lunch, smiles and very friendly. Princeton by sea IPA, with Fish Tacoís, and wafting malt aromas from the brewhouse mashing tun! awesome!

Visited with the family on St. Patricks day - doing a great business. Nice location right next to the ocean, quite large with a mix of indoor and outdoor seating. Small bar area. Running about 10 beers on tap, including a mix of regulars and seasonals. Service was pretty good given how busy they were. Food is pretty good actually, but tourist-pricey. Beers, unfortunately, are only so so.

Itís a pleasant place to visit, especially sitting outside on a sunny day. The food is pricey but of good quality. Their beers vary in quality but they do have some good ones. Would visit again but more for the scenery and environment than the beer.

Visited here a while back while on a beach trip with the family. The place is obviously popular with this kind of crowd. It was full, but not overcrowded on a Saturday evening and the service was okay if a bit rushed. The location is awesome with a view of the ocean from the large patio. This is the place to be in my opinion as the inside is a bit run down. I thought both the beer and the food were average. The beer was particularly forgettable. This seems to be the kind of place that coasts on their incredible location, and Iím not a big fan of that. I will have to revisit soon though, because itís been a while since Iíve been here. It is worth a stop if you want the ticks and a decent place to relax after a day at the beach.

No wonder why Travel and Lesiure Magazine named this one of the best beach bars in America. I visited here after kayaking in Half Moon Bay. Quick walk from the pier to this brewpub. Busy all Saturday afternoon. Sat inside for 30 minutes and had a 20 oz. IPA while waiting for an outside table. They had wind-shields around the patio area to keep the chill off, and allow you to view the ocean. Very good beer, excellent seafood, salads and sandwiches. A little pricy. One of the locals said thereís an interesting local speaker series on Thursday evenings, if you like intellectual conversation.

A nice place on the bay. Good sized bar area with a fireplace. Big patio and plenty of inside eating. Decent beers and good food. The service was OK, but seemed to be rushed whenever I asked a question.

Was at their place the week after San Fransisco beer week. Sun and just a litle wind and their out door veranda was packed. Fast service and good food. A sample tray with 10 different of their own beers.
Had time for a short visit in the brewery and meet the nice brew crew. Iíll gladly come back.
