I have been a few times, I think this place is great!I came here two days in a row! I like sitting at the bar rather than getting a table. Bartenders Hillary and Billy are very friendly and willing to strike up a conversation when times allows (this is a busy bar). The service is better at the Bar than at the tables. They have one of the best taps list in the area. There regular tap list is great and the rotating tap list great! There selection of IPA is great, sometimes they will have a Sour on tap. In the last month I have had Russian River Supplication and Telegraphy Brewing Co.'s Obscura Vieja, Pliny the Elder, Lagunitas Holiday's Sucks, Sierra Nevada Golden Estate They The food is awesome! I have tried something different every time I have come here. The Fig Marmalade Burger is awesome and the staff always recommends it. The Cowboy Burger is good the onion straws give the burger a unique flavor that most bbq burgers don't have. The wait for a table can be long, sometimes up to an hour, you can always squeeze in at the bar.

Eureka is a great place to grab some good food and some good beers. They have (if I remember correctly) around 40 staple taps with 6 or 8 rotating taps. My favorite is the fact that they have Pliny the Elder on tap. Haven't paid much attention to their bottle selection since they are usually a bit out of price range. Food is absolutely wonderful and would recommend the fig marmalade burger. Bartender's are always friendly and know a lot about their trade. Service not at the bar can be a bit slow at times and the place can get very crowded, very quickly.

Overall, you'll have to come back more than once if you want to try from their large selection, and it will be worth it every time.

Visited on a busy Saturday evening, around 5:00. The place was already crowded, but there were a few seats at the bar, which made perusing the extensive tap and bottle selections easy.

With over 20 rotating taps, there's bound to be something for everyone. The offerings were well thought out, with a mix of well known names (Lagunitas, Sierra, Stone, Alesmith, Bruery, New Belgium's Lips of Faith) and local (Eagle Rock, Black Market) breweries. The 3 servers I spoke with were enthusiastic and seemed to have good knowledge of the available beers. Another plus was that servings were in the appropriate glassware.

And how was the food? Burgers, as should be the case here, were the highlights. Large patties, cooked to order, with a variety of add ons, gives you plenty to choose from. For those not interested in a burger, there is a fairly large list of starters, as well as chicken sandwiches and the like. All in our party were pleased with the quality of the food.

While Eureka isn't cheap, the tab for 5 averaged $20 each, with beers. Happy hour goes until 6pm everyday, so go early and save a buck per pour.

All in all, Eureka is a good addition to the downtown Claremont dining, and craft drinking, scene. Give it a try!

I recently went to this burger place because I heard they had some great IPA's on tap such as Pliny the Elder. I had the original Eureka burger and it was pretty good nothing to write home about; but still good. When it came to the beers I sat there for a few minutes deciding what I wanted and since I had to drive and couldn't drink too much I knew I could have two beers at most. I ended up getting the Hercules DIPA and the Mission IPA. The former was awesome with the latter tasting pretty good. The place is pretty pricey and if I am paying 6 bucks and up for a beer I want it to at least be 12 ounces yet they served my IPA's in a 10.5 ounce tulip glass.

Overall I would go back but it's not a place I plan on frequenting often.
