    Enjoyed the chilaquiles here. Pork belly hash was tasty but could have used a bit more pork belly. Found a pretty big egg cell chunk in that dish tho. Bloody Mary was delish! Will come try dinner!

    Recommendation: don't miss out on your opportunity to have their Bloody Mary. I had the French toast with apples and fresh whipped creme and savored every bite. Mmmm

    Surprisingly Great Cap, made perfectly. And the pastries are amazing. The food, especially the burger is one of the best in town. But if you just want a great cap and need to relax your mind, this it

    Great beers and drinks. The food was excellent as was dessert! We all agreed we will come back as the menu is unique and caters to pork!

    Great for brunch or a dinner date. Try the oxtail poutine if it's your first time around.

    You can't go wrong with anything that you order. However, for dinner I recommend the burger with cheddar and for breakfast I recommend the egg sandwich. Also, for beer, check out Linden Street.

    LOVE IT! Even if you arent in the mood for some of the fancier dishes, trust me...order their soup du jour, and a burger and it will be the best you've ever eaten!

    The burger is worth traveling to Oakland for, good beers on tap, a rotating selection of other gastropub selections never disappoints.

    A plus for the ketchup & mustard, vegetarian options aren't many but the salad and corn I had was good. Open area is nice and chill, good for afterwork quick bites

    If u like steam punk and rasta vibes then u will certainly enjoy the irie woodsy vibration emitting from the clientele to the table tops and awesome Louise Nevelson-like assemblage on the walls yo!

    Have brunch here, the Chilaquiles with salsa verde and the baked Eggs ala Cazuela with Grilled Veggie Mojo were fantastic.

    This restaurant serves up true variety. Whether you’re in the mood for Spanish rice, fresh papardelle, Yucatecan chicken, or just a great local beer in great local company, Chop Bar delivers.

    Love this Resturant. The burgers are amazing. Also try the ox tail poutine, it is a very good dish.

    Pretty delightful American fare. Try the pork chop with the mashed potatoes and trotter gravy. The charcuterie was so-so, but the mains were great.

    Popped in for a beer late in the day. Bar staff are ‘on it’, friendly and the pub has a great feel 👍🏻

    Amazing risotto, whether with chicken or fish. Very casual, But the price is also on the higher side. Worth it.

    Everything here is undervalued, or at least, worth the price. The selection is refined, crafty, and impeccably prepared.

    GET the burger. Don't question it. Just do. Also the mac and cheese. But mostly the burger.

    Great atmosphere, excellent service, stiff drinks, really good food unless you order steak. The 'chef' doesn't know his temperatures :/

    Good people run this establishment. Make an effort to attend their pig roasts during the summer - you won't regret it.

    Try the Strawberry/Hibiscus Cooler - Refreshing. You can also add a shot of something. The bartender recommended a dark rum.

    Since literally every dish on the menu is delicious you might be inclined to skip over the lowly Chop Bar Burger. DON'T MAKE THAT MISTAKE.

    Don't come here when you're starving! There is always a line, so come early. The wait is worth it, though.

    Not that impressed. The duck breast was over-cooked, even after I specified being on the rare side was ok. Friend wasn't impressed by burger and other friend said her soup was cold. Jo-Joes were good.

    The burger was pretty good, but I still left hungry. The service wasn't the best. I may as well have been in the Kaiser ER, I got about the same level of service.Perhaps just a bad day for the server?

    Quick service, crispy fries, tasty salad. The chicken, burger, and salmon were all dry and over cooked.

    It's all about the pork belly hash. A meager but surprisingly filling portion.

    Very German-style food, which I, as a German, have to admit was excellent.

    best burger in the bay area. pretty sure that's due to crazy amounts of butter.... but it's so worth it.
