Shopping center location next to a teppanyaki place, which probably has better food. Claw machine game with lobsters right by the entrance...okay? Sat at the bar area, which was quite full. The beers were at best mediocre with the hefeweizen being by far the best. The only redeeming thing about this place was the service and the very attractive mid-20s to early 30s women working the bar area.

Omaha Jack’s is now totally rebranded as Cucamonga Brewing Co. Same location, probably different menu. Still a brewpub with some spillover beers from the old francise. We had a bunch of different wings and other appetizers, which were actually pretty great. Service was attentive. We got a flight of all their house beers, but they didn’t match well with the labeled serving tray (laminated sheet) so the server labeled them by hand with pen and paper for me. House beer quality was average to below average. Ambiance is macro chain like Chili’s or Applebee’s type. There’s a separate bar. But there is also live music some nights apparently. About 7 house beers on tap and another 7 guest craft beers. Plus macro bottles for all the sports bar types. Prices were good since it was $1 per 2oz sample. Moderately priced food. They did have Port Brewing Mongo on tap for $6 pints!

OK, this place is a big box of a building with no character. I didn’t eat here as the yelp reviews made me nervous for my health, but I figured I could try their sampler fight. The beers were solidly below average: not a single brew even breaking the average rating (for me 3.4). Ouch. Ironically, their web page mentions that numerous heartless brewpubs have sprung up in the last decade, but Omaha Jacks is "among the best in California," because they posses the right combination of "expertise, equipment, and passion." Well, that’s what they told the investment bankers in their business proposal anyway. The web page mocks brewpubs "at every corner and even in malls!" Where is Omaha Jacks, you might ask. Across the street from Victoria Gardens Mall. Rancho Cucaracha sucks in general, and O.J. is no exception. But I tried new beers and made new friends. Of the latter, the waitress complained about the guy sitting next to me (after he left). "He was starring at all the women and licking his lips, when the waitresses walked up stairs; I’m all, like, Deja Vu is open, don’t come in here and do that!" Classy. They did have a claw machine with live lobsters as prizes, however. No kidding. Tragically, the place also smelled like lobster (or bad shell fish, at any rate). Don’t waste your time.

Nice little brewpub, actually it is a pretty big establishment, lots of seating and a decent sized bar. They had 6 of their own beers on tap along with another 8 or so split between BMC and other craft beers. Very nice bartender and very attractive, talkative and very attentive. Had a burger, which was very good and pretty affordable, they also had $3 schooners of the house beers on the day we were there (Sat) which is a pretty damn good deal on a decent lineup of brews, just wish they would have more offerings of their own.

Stopped in for lunch and a beer sampler. They had 7 of their own beers on tap ranging from blonde to vanilla porter. There were one or two stand outs, IPA and imperial red that I would gladly order again. The others were all pretty solid beers. The food was reasonably priced, quickly delivered and pretty tasty. I liked the homemade potato chips as well. If you’re in the area, check it out.

Very cool local spot. The owner’s are very cool and like to chat with the guests. After 8pm they serve their own craft brews for like $2 per pint. They have a kick-ass IPA that they brew called six-shooter IPA. Can’t beat it. They feature a rotation of local home brewers draft. A few of my friends just brewed an Belgian Strong IPA that they are trying to get in there once we carbonate it.

(Visited 05/2008): Omaha Jack’s is located in Rancho Cucamonga on Foothill Blvd, not too far off the Ontario Freeway. They have a good-sized private lot.
The interior is open and spacious, with the restaurant area divided from the bar area by a wavy wall. The restaurant side looks kind of like a Cracker Barrel but with Venetian plaster.
The brewpub has 8 beers, 7 of which are available in a sampler. A couple of them are seasonals and they run from Blonde, Pale, IPA, Porter etc. The beers are fairly average overall.
Service was good both in the restaurant and in the bar. The server knew what beers she was serving, and the bartender and manager were knowledgeable as well.
The food is pretty good. I ordered a patty melt and fries and found them both tasty.
Overall I would stop by here again in the future. The beers are really nothing to write home about but overall the place does a pretty good job.
