Heard this place was great from a few different people and left disappointed with the beer that was offered here, did not see one IPA there, which is always a problem in my book

Run of the mill sports bar that resembles a dive out here in the Inland Empire, some sketchy people in here playing billiards, started to get busy around 5:30 pm when we left

Stopped here tonight with my girlfriend and roommate for their Taco Tuesday, one dollar each which is not bad, but you can only get ground beef, they were okay, but nothing special, reminded me a lot of Del Taco

Was not too impressed with the quality of this place, although it was fairly clean and was pretty spacious, in a weird little shopping center next to a barber and a little Mexican food joint

Definitely not one hundred beers like the only other review of this place said, I counted twenty-five bottles that were mostly Michelob, Budweiser, Coors, and Miller products, there was twelve taps with the only craft beer being a Widmer Hefeweizen

Some of the semi out of the oridinary bottles were Big Sky Summer Honey and Stone Levitation, which can both be found for cheap just a few blocks away at BevMo, everything else you could expect to find at another bar around here

Prices were a little lower than expected, but it was happy hour, there was a nice discount, three to four dollars per pint, they also served beer in mugs

Could not see myself going going back for either the food or beer, Charlie Jewells and the Royal Falconer are much better beer spots in this area, I would not recommend going here unless you live in Highland or it a last resort because you do not want to deal with the crowds in downtown Redlands

The Rotten Oak has been open for a few years now and is a great place to stop by, have a beer, and watch a ball game. The Oak prides themself with a beer menu consisting of over 100 fine selections. Of these 100 beers, you can find many microbrews from various breweries around So Cal. On my last visit I was able to order a bucket of beer with 6 different IPAs of choice. It was fairly inexpensive, too. The food is decent and for Monday Night Football they usually have some pretty good specials. The owner, Todd, is a great guy and a Chicago sports fan. Stop by and say hi.
