This pub and microbrewery has retained its classic charm while changing with the times. – The Scene
Whether you call it Desert Edge or the Pub, you only have to visit once to call it home away from home. In the last few years, it's become more family-friendly--kids are welcome--but college students and professionals are the main patrons.
Known for its daily pasta salads and lunch menu that gets better after 2pm, the kitchen serves the usual pub sandwiches with fruit, pasta and salad sides as well as other traditional pub dishes. Customer favorites include the Szechwan chicken pasta salad (served on Tuesdays), nachos and the French onion soup. It brews six aptly named beers (Latter Days Stout and Happy Valley Hefeweisen, for example) throughout the year. Four beers are always on tap and two change with the seasons.
I need a bit more – For me the beer brewed here is pehaps the best on site beer in the valley. The food also is usually excellent (my favorite being the rare roast beef on soughdough w/ french onion soup). No doubt the Pilsner and the Stout are great. And the seasonal beers are often just as good. Unfortunately the atmostphere is lacking. I used to frequent this place when it was only known as "The Pub (at Trolly Square), and at that time there was quite a lively atmosphere. However, since introducing the "brewery" the place has lost it's charm. It could now benefit bigtime from several well placed sports monitors and some friendly (perhaps even attractive) servers. I would be down there a couple of times a week if this were the case!
Worst Service Ever! – This was, with out a doubt the poorest service i have ever had. After being seated, which took an unusually long time, we ordered our food. Just shy of an hour later it arrived. My drink was only refilled once, and they continually messed up my friends drink. The food was overpriced for the portions; i went home hungry and dissappointed. When we asked for the manager, our cashier became defensive and rude. Claiming it was because they were busy. Watching the people who order after you, eat before you, was a lot of fun. We only waited for our food because of the high recommendation we were given. I was amazed at our server and cashier's attitude towards the problem. I will never eat there again, and would certainly never recommend this restaurant to anyone
Awesome specials! – Have had dinner here several times - love the dinner specials. Some originality and great prices. Good food - good beer and great service!
Rare Roast Beef on Rye- My favorite vice – The Pub is a cool place to hang out. My boyfriend and I will go to get the rare roast beef on rye sandwiches. Delish!
Its a cool place because not too many kids usually. So, a more grown up crowd and not too many shrieking infants.
Whenever we go, the staff is always friendly and accomodating and our food is always fresh and tasty. Another of our favorite places! moe
Perfect patio, casual dining – This is a very comfortable restaurant--great for an after-shopping meal or pre-movie bite. French onion soup is simply delicious. Greek pasta salad is a favorite. The small patio is a great place to perch on a summer evening and enjoy a beer.
