Nice mix of indoor and outdoor seating - upstairs and downstairs, booths, tables, and bar seating. Music was kind of annoying the night I went, and there were a few obnoxious drunks of various ages at the bar.
Service was excellent (fast, friendly, fairly knowledgable), though the huge number of servers, mostly in uniform, reminds me of a chain sports bar - or even a TGI Friday's sort of establishment (it seems like the kind of place where the staff wears fake smiles and head-sets, even if they don't).
They have a good cross-section of their beers: a mix of those that are always available and a few of their seasonal or limited releases, and at least one cask offering. Guest handles were pretty boring though (cider, etc)...
Happy hour prices are very cheap and they do growler fills as well.
We had pizza and fish and chips - the former was OK but not really worth ordering again, but the fish was quite fresh with a tasty (and not too oily) thin batter - and the portions were very generous.

A great place for lunch or dinner. The location is nice and close to the rest of downtown Santa Rosa. I've been partial to their excellent burgers.
Their beer range is decent, and haven't been disappointed.
Third Street, like it's nearby neighbor (Russian River BC), is always busy. That said, the food and beer makes it worth it.
