This was a return visit after many years. We had an enjoyable few beers and an appy, it was a shame that the main focus of the draft beers were IPAs which did not suit us.

My wife and I ate here on our road trip up the coast last October. We spoke about the burgers every day until we drove back south, and made a point of being there at lunchtime. VERY possibly the best hamburger I have ever had! Casual pub atmosphere, great beer. We will be going back again!

Staying at the Sandcastle this bar was in easy walking distance. No fried food but plenty of other great selections. Excellent food, well priced and very good service. Better than expected and thoroughly recommended for an easy evening meal or daytime snack.

Went here for a couple drinks. Both my friend and I enjoyed it. It was in the middle of the afternoon, so not sure how busy or loud it gets in the evening. They had a single, live performer who was easy to listen too. Thumbs up!!

stopped in for a pint, wasnt sure what i wanted - had thoughts on what i was looking for and staff guided me to prime pint. atmosphere is casual and laid back, darts along side wall, a few tables and a bar - what else do you need when thirsty?

I was not impressed at all. We went there to watch a football game. We had a hamburger and a chicken sandwich. My hamburger was so dry it was hard to eat it. I really should have complained. My husband didn't finish his chicken sandwich. We won't go back.

Spent the night in Arroyo Grande on the drive from SF to LA. Decided to have dinner at this place. Didn't seem to get much tourist traffic, seemed to have some locals hanging around. We arrived and stood inside the door, an employee was serving a table a few feet away, saw us, said nothing, and went behind the bar.... More
