3.25/5  rDev -22.1%
vibe: 1.5 | quality: 3.5 | service: 2 | selection: 5 | $$$$

Finally made it down to this place after driving by it over two dozen times and I had high expectations going, waiting for the doors to open at Noon and made my way to the first seat at the bar

Sat down and ordered a Russian River Perdition (first time I have ever seen) and almost crapped my pants when I saw it was 8 dollars for a small

Cool selection of tulip glasses and chalices, rare Belgian ones

Tried to order a hamburger without a few ingredients because I am badly allergic to them, but there were no substitutions, and the bartender was a real jerk about it, so I went hun gry and felt the beers a lot more than I wanted to

Had a Rogue Imperial Porter after that and it was strong, but good

Place had 37 taps including some hard to find Craftsman brews, three Russian Rivers, four Rogues, some Chimays, and a bunch of Belgians in bottles but for ridiculous prices

16 ounce pours of most brews were about five to six dollars, but the two I got were eight, Pliny the Elder was also eight for a 12 oz. which is ridiculous because I have seen pints for four dollars several times, and even three dollars during various happy hours

This place was so small and the crowd got horrible by 12:30 pm, surrounded by a bunch of people who know nothing about a beer, the guy next to me had not even heard of Arrogant Bastard before

Service was horrible and three bartenders all were off in another world, did not get to try any of the food because most of it looked gross or I could not physically eat it

Too snobbish of a crowd for me, Naja's Place blows away this place and is closer to my house, Daily Pint is also a better atmosphere and have a lot better bottles including Firestone 10

Most expesnive bar I have ever been to and will probably never go back, very disappointing experience and the most money I have ever spent on two beers (18 dollars after 1 dollar tip on each)

Only reason I might go back here (and I mean might) is to try other rare Craftsman, Rogue, and Russian River

Do yourself a favor and avoid this place unless you really want to try Perdition like I did, that was the main reason why I went in the first place and now that I had it, no reason to go again

vibe: 4.25 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4.5 | food: 4.5 | $$

Stopped in here for dinner last night, I have wanted to check this place out for years now glad I could finally stop in. Atmosphere is pretty laid back but busy at the same time. Tables are shared amongst groups so they are hard to come by. We got lucky and two people left the bar so we snagged the seats right away. Service was solid. They were always around to get me a beer but they weren't the most approachable people either. Quality was top notch. My food was high quality and my beers were all served in the proper glasses so no complaints there. Selection was killer. Abyss, §ucaba etc. on-tap were all pleasant surprises that I was able to partake in. I had heard nothing but amazing thing about the burgers so I knew what I was getting when we walked in and I was not let down, it was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Prices were a touch high but I was expecting that going in. Overall an awesome place to stop in Santa Monica, I would return in a heartbeat.
