    A great place in downtown Pleasanton to meet up with friends for drinks. Always a lot of great beers on tap.

    Usually have lunch there. The French Onion soup is the best in Pleasanton. My favorite is the house smoked pastrami, amazing.

    Beer is good. Service sucked. Food is mediocre. Needs new management.

    Handle's earns the only exception to the must serve Heinz Ketchup rule - homemade ketchup.

    Surprisingly "family friendly" for a brewpub. I was surrounded by tables with loud little kids. Would have preferred more adult surroundings, especially given the high prices here.

    The food needs work but the beer and the atmosphere are great. I think its geared toward an older crowd

    Great outdoor area. The French onion soup is delish and don't miss the Mac n cheese. Trafethin chard by the glass for the win!

    Service at the bar is better than a table. The beer list is worth the try. Didn't eat so can't say how the food compares. Still, fun with a group.

    The food and service is so-so. But if all you're looking for is a drink it's okay.

    I still haven't eaten here but I will soon. I did go in last Sunday and had some Mimosas. The mimosas were great!

    Calamari was boring. Beef brisket was good. Ceased was good but chop salad was disappointing. Noel

    Grilled portobello from local farm was yummy, however brisket was dry and tough. Great atmosphere was great. Good luck to you Handles'

    The burgers are great. Pulled pork lacks flavor, I wouldn't order it again.
