As a west coast IPA fanatic, I so wanted to love this place. I'd tried the White Knuckle Double IPA before so I thought I was on the right track. But while the beer list in the menu had a few IPAs, the list of beers that actually had on tap was much more limited. And ni IPAs! They tended toward malty with an amber, two porters and not a lot I was excited about. I started with a pale ale which was decent but not memorable and their Orange & Black which was about the same.

The menu was fantastic with burgers, pizzas, salads, sandwiches, etc. but the food turned out to be just adequate. I had the blackened chicken sandwich with avocado and jack cheese. The portions were large. But the sandwich was dry, the chicken was overcooked and the bread was overly crunchy. The onion rings were room temperature when they arrived and pretty soaked in grease.

The service was average and the prices were a little on the high side. The atmosphere is its best feature. The interior is nice and the outdoor seating is even better. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough to win me over.

I think with a little more effort in each area it could have been fantastic but they just seem happy with the location.

MBC was one of the first brew pubs to open in the bay. The beers have been consistantly good for a loooong time. Unfortunately though, the food and service at the brewpub has taken a steep dive over the years.
