    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

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

  • Cecilia Y.

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

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

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

    The bartenders will let you taste beers. So tell them what you like and try some new beers!

    If you're drinking wine, buy the Sauvignon blanc bottle. Economical :)
