Typical Rock Bottom decor and beers. Nothing really wrong with the beers, but nothing really making them all that great either. Service was good and they had 9 house beers on tap, which was nice. Large bar area with plenty of regular seating in the dining area, too. Serviceable option in an otherwise poor beer area.

Beat the crowd for Sunday evening. Quick seating. Quick service. Cajun fish tacos were great. Not all that many beers on tap, but theyíre average or better for the styles. Good experience.

Not bad for a chain. Second to the Denver location.

Made the mistake of stopping here on St Patrickís day ( though the crappines may persist even after the green puke is cleaned up).
From sitting down to actually being served drinks was 20 minutes, another 40 for food and the food was barely even warm when it showed up. Got attitude for asking to put in a food order and never got any water.

Went in early February 2012. Part of a chain - and while itís evident, it isnít in your face. Comfortable bar looking into the brewery. Small selection on tap of decent craft beers. Oatmeal stout on cask was very tasty. Their IPA was nice. When I asked for a sample of a couple beers, I got 4 ounce pours! When I ordered a pint I got 20 ounces!! Now thatís value :-)

Good place, but can get very crowded sometimes, the bar area is pretty tight. Usually have a couple very good beers on tap, but the rest are there more for mass appeal. Would be great if they could get another one or two specialty brews on the menu.

In the Pruneyard shopping center. Large bar, good beer, most always busy, good bartenders and staff, good food. Also have a large patio for summer and now itís enclosed in a tent for winter. A good local hangout for beer, food, sports.

Huge place, and has that slick, chainy feel, though it is about as warm as you can get with that, and the bar is actually pretty comfortable. Service is pretty good, though not very knowledgeable sometimes. One time I asked what was on cask, and the waitress and bartender both had no idea so they gave me a sample to see what I thought. That was funny. It was Raccoon Red. They do always have a cask beer going though, which is nice. Usually, there are 7-8 beers on with one also available cask conditioned. Half liter mugs or full-sized nonic pint glasses. Beer prices are pretty standard: 4.75 regular, 3.25 happy hour and they give free samples of pretty much anything as long as you act unsure about what you want. Beer quality has been pretty high for the most part. Their standard beers are well balanced and crafted, and their seasonals have been a little more interesting and all good. Nothing has blown me away yet, but I have enjoyed pretty much everything save the cherry stout which had a diacetyl problem. Food is good but pretty standard stuff. They do have nice veggie-burger options for vegans, which is a good find at a brewpub. Food is very reasonably priced for the quality. The best value by far though are growlers: 9.99 including glass, or 7.99 for refills, and that has been for anything that I have seen so far, though I donít know if really strong stuff would be more. For a chain brewpub, Iíd have to say this easily beats out BJs or Gordon Beirsch. The brewer here seems to be making good stuff in a relatively confined model.
