(Visited 06/2013): Steelhead Burlingame is located on California Drive not too far off the 101. There is a metered parking lot across the street from the building.

The exterior of the old brick building features large windows. The inside opens to a large spacious brick room with a high ceiling. Restaurant seating on the left and a winding bar on the right with a marble countertop. There is a pool hall in a separate area of the building too. A chalkboard behind the bar lists the beers, and there is an ornate copper draught system. Brewing equipment is visible through windows behind the bar.

The beer selection consists of 8 house beers. Pretty standard styles, including an IPA, Amber, Irish Stout and Hefeweizen. The beers are all decent although nothing stands out, and they are available in a sampler.

Service at the bar on a weekday lunch was good. The bartender was familiar with the beers and attentive.

Steelheadís food is pretty good. I had fish tacos for lunch and enjoyed them.

Overall this is not a place I would put in the upper echelon of beer spots in the area but it is a worthwhile brewpub to visit in the San Mateo area.

Finally went back here for the first time since they changed owners/names. Back then it was a different brewery (Burlingame Brewing or something like that, changed in the mid 90s).

Beer is surprisingly decent and its near the Cal Train station so thats a plus. Didnt try the food and it was the middle of the day, right around Christmas so it was kind of dead. Will have to revisit some time.

This place is around forever, since I was a kid and growing up here. The restaurant is huge and very nicely decorated. The beers are actually not bad and they have quite a few of them on tap. The bartenders were nice, too. Prices arenít the greatest, but itís Burlingame, so you canít really expect much else. Kind of weird to come here and drink just a short walk from my high school.

On the day of arrival from Sweden my local frien brought me to the Steelhead brewery. It is a brewery and not a pub, but from time to time they have an open brewery with other local brewers invited. The beer is not that many different varietys but all are OK. The food is a small selection and not that good when I was there. It seem they just started a litle while ago but they are getting their brewing in good shape. If my good friend Bob still lives in San Carlos the next time I visit San Fransisco Iíll come by them and see whatís new. I think they will improve.

Located in a old big warehouse. A large dinning area with a fairly small bar compared to the rest of the building that faces the brewery. Off the restaurant is a billiard room with about 7 pool tables, with taps in the room. Service was good, considering it was Tuesday night and the place was packed. Food and beer was good. Food was on the high side, but the good price of the beer averaged it out. Iíll be back.

I went here twice. Once o eat and once for beer. The food is OK and beer is not that great. They have Steelhead in Oregon and the beer there is awesome. Different brewers equal different results. Iíll have to try again sometime.

Good location, in front of the Caltrain station and the Burlingame shuttle. The place is quite big, with high 1900s brick walls, and a long bar. Service was attentive. Did not eat there but grub was varied and seemed good. Beers where solid, with only the lighter fare a bit of a letdown. The 8 beer sampler is around 10$.

Fairly good, the food is better than the beer, but the beer isnít bad. So that says something about the food. Always crowded, and a bit more upscale than other breweries, but not bad. Good ales.
