Headed up here on a recent trip to No. Cal. on 11/29

Nice little brewpub that is pretty damn busy for about 2pm on a Sunday afternoon (and that wasn't just at the bar stools to watch the Sunday games). Walked in the back entrance that leads right in to three of four tables on the right, a few arcade games and a pool table is located on the left. Then you come upon the bar - relatively small bar area, like your typical restaurant, and then there is an open area of seating with little tables dispersed throughout. Laid back vibe, lots of locals there (always a good sign IMO). Great music and vibe. As mentioned, busy for 2pm on a Sunday, but wait staff was is nice and friendly. Roughly 14 beers on draft (5 seasonals). Food is outstanding! Got the stuffed pretzel with jalepeno and cheese for an app. For lunch, I got the Famous Brown with parmesan lemon fries and my girlfriend got the sliders.
Overall, I wish this place was freaking east coast! Good beer, good food, good wait staff, good vibe and CHEAP as hell!

May place in that it caters to families with two pinball machines and a large hanging spider at the front door that goes up and down as the door opens and closes! Cool stop! A BIG miss is the ketchup..... They don't serve Heinz!

Stopped by while in the area for work. Seems like a fun place, but the beers are kind of generic. Also seemed a little run down and tired. Their fruit beers seem to be the best offerings and the staff was nice. Food was standard pub fare, and priced reasonably.

Brewery/tap room is usually packed. Has some tv's, bar and table seating. Average food but great if your in the mood for something simple. Good beer. Usually their usuals on tap and a couple taproom only like the apricot wheat. Usually pretty noisy. Overall a chill place.

Busy at lunchtime and still got a good table. Great burger. Wife loved the clam chowder. The chocolate porter was very good. Lots of locals eating and drinking. Friendly vibe.

Visited 3 breweries rated in this order: Mad River, Eel River & Lost Coast.
All good. Lost Coast mostly a university / young crowd. Order the roast oysters with pesto! (with garlic is over kill). Their beers a bit watery and uninspired, but liked the IPA well enough to buy a well priced 6. Our waitress was great. Pretty typical restaurant rather than a tasting room.

They seem to have forgotten what craft beer is about they make very mediocre one note beer. The beer industry has moved forward into a cornucopia of flavors and lost coast is doing exactly the same thing that they have been doing for the last 25 years . On the rare occasion that they try something new it is a horrible half assed effort. It seems that they are a victim of their own success kind of like they are not willing to take any chances and just want to play it safe . But that's just my opinion and it doesn't mean much to anyone but me
