I stopped by here while in town for work last week. Not far from the center of Orange, the interior is a fairly typical, but quite nice gastropub.

I sat at the bar, and the bartender was friendly and attentive. The workers were not overly knowledgeable, but could certainly speak to the beers they had on their menu.

The selection was quite good, both tap and bottle list, but the bottles were a bit expensive. Overall, I was impressed, but certainly not overwhelmed. A craft beer enthusiast should be able to find at least a couple interesting taps and a few interesting bottles to try.

I had the shepherd's pie, which was quite good. I certainly recommend eating here.

I recommend this place, especially if you are in the area for Bruery Provisions. I highly recommend coming here instead of Hollingshead's if in the area.

Haven Gastropub is located in Old Towne Orange, a quaint area of Orange. It has a small town ambiance with a traffic circle that doubles as a town plaza.

They had both a bar area and table seating. The interior had lots of dark wood in its design which was very appealing. I sat at the bar and had a glass of sour with their pretzel. The mustard dip accompanying the pretzel was fantastic. The beer selection was pretty nice.

A nice gastropub in a nice area. I enjoyed my visit very much.

I visited this place while vacationing with my family. Lucky me it was during OC Beer Week and a Bottle Logic Tap Takeover. Needless to say I feel in love with this place. Very cool vibe. The hamburger was on point. Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable.

Came for lunch. Amazing beer selection! They were doing a great flight from Drie Fonteinen including Framboos. Great tap selection and the bottle list was incredible. I did NOT think the prices were bad at all. The food was also incredible - we had the pork tacos, mac and cheese, and poutine. All were fantastic. Highly recommended.

I've been here quite a few times and am not sure how I didnt review this yet. Anyway, this review is from 8/14/12 with StarRaptor and Markintihar

Atm- Its built in the veign of an open restaurant style with open black ceilings, big windows along the side a fireplace and a big bar along the side. At night with the wood its a bit dark and nice with the low lighting.

Quality- Overall the quality of this place is great. The food is well crafted and super tasty. The beer is on point most of the time, Wish they had a bit more on tap at times. Most of the time its things that are pretty available in So.Cal. No real WOW beers. Bottles are pretty good as well.

Service- Always prompt and helpul, lots of yes sir and can I get you anything else. The chef and staff really make people feel at home.

Selection- Its a one page menu and thats okay. I just need more sometimes. Not a flaw per se just needs a bit of variety.

Food- Amazing everytime. Last night I got the lamb burger. WOW. Super flavorful and perfectly cooked to the chefs selection.

Value- I'm torn here. Its kinda in between reasonable and pricey. For 1 beer, chips and the burger was over $30.

I stopped by here for dinner on a short work related trip out to Anaheim. It was a Tuesday night, and the bar was pretty open. Most of the tables were filled.
I took a seat at the bar and waited a bit for the bartender to return. When he did, he offered me a tap list and food menu. Pretty decent selection on tap. About a dozen or so taps, and all quality stuff. Bottle list was quality as well, with what seemed like slightly higher than normal bar prices. I settled on a Golden Road Hefeweizen and a lamb burger. While I waited for my food, I noticed that even though the place was pretty full, it wasn't very loud. Not a big fan of bars that are so loud due to music and people shouting over it in order to be heard, so it was a big plus for me.
The food arrived, and both the burger and pomme frites were delicious. I finished up both food and beer and ordered a Ballast Point Sea Monster to finish up the evening.
Overall, I enjoyed this place. If I was a local, I probably wouldn't make it in regularly due to what seemed like slightly higher prices. However, both food and beer seem to be much appreciated here so you can rest assured you'll get a good meal in a pleasant atmosphere.
