    Probably the only pub in Palo Alto deserving of this name, great beers. Can be packed, and also they (or I should say the city) don't allow drinking outside after 8 or 9 or so, so plan accordingly.

    Favorite bar in Palo Alto. Best beer selection on town. Has good pub food and darts as well.

    Great beer selection and outdoor seating. Not too much else around in Palo Alto to get that kind of experience. Lots of nerds. The fried fish looks good.

    The jukebox has surprisingly good stuff. Including jazz: on a quiet night, pop on some vintage Miles or Coltrane and watch the place transform!

    Tuesday night trivia is the best. They've recently upped the spice on the deviled eggs, so beware.

    Avoid the after 10 PM crowd on Fridays and the weekend—noisy and crowded. Show up closer to 7 PM and enjoy a much more relaxed atmosphere where it's easier to talk.

    If you like beer, this place is great. If you like being served beer, or service in general, eh...not so much. 10 visits so far, and every bartender would rather lick razors than actually pour a beer.

    Great place for hanging out. For those who are happy to try out new things: have the chocolate stout before you go home!

    Great beer bar and Kasim is a good guy, but they REALLY need to put prices on the menu!!! You can really get some unpleasant surprises here.

    Someone should call PETA. The way they overcook the ribeye for their steak sandwich is cruelty to animals.
