This is my husband's favorite place to go. Nice friendly staff with large bar area. Huge selection of great beers, knowledgeable staff. We love the Swiss mushroom burgers. A Tootsie pop comes with every meal. Onion rings and garlic fries are delicious! Sports are always playing on their many indoor tvs. Outside seating available in front and back.

I really loved my burger here which I ordered with chili and proceeded to smother my burger with. Added some of their excellent BBQ sauce and enjoyed immensely! They have an incredible selection of brews on tap (Im sure you're not surprised to hear this given its name but it outdoes many similar places in quantity). Wines you will be... More

Good beer Good food but does get a little crowded, more of a younger crowd. There's a nice out door area to sit and have your favorite micro-brew.

Occasional business trips to Livermore are always happy because we can relax here when work's done. Food is great, nice choice of brews (wine, not so much) and the vibe is whatever you want. You can be low key, or you can throw yourself into the deep end. Wonderful staff, eager to help and all the suggestions have been perfect.... More

This was just the kind of place we were looking for. On a busy, happening street, full of life, possibly best burgers we've had, best local beers we've tried. Would highly recommend and would come again!

We went here the other night with the kids. They are in the middle of an Oktoberfest theme so we ordered German beer and specials. They were pretty good but I think we should have stuck with the burgers. It was very noisy, even outside, but everyone was friendly and overall it was a fun night out. The kids liked... More
