The beer is still good, the food is poor. I've been going to both the Mt View and San Jose locations for many years. The food used to be pretty good and (I suspect) the salmon fish and chips still is, but the rest of the menu is pretty poor. I had barley crusted trout this evening and it was served on a cold plate so it was cold in seconds, it was over breaded, dry, and generally tasteless. The baby greens salad had nice greens but the avocado was not ripe and there was too much dressing with too much vinegar. So to just have a beer and maybe some nachos its fine, but for dinner I am sorry to recommend that you go somewhere else.
Go somewhere else. I've eaten here three times and found it to be a bad experiance everytime. The service is terribly slow. I almost didn't give it a second chance but it's right on San Pedro and the prices are good. But the second AND the third time, the service was so slow. They weren't busy at all every time I went there so I'm not sure why the service is so bad. I would never eat there again. I don't care how inexpensive it is, it's not worth waiting an hour to eat. I would recommend walking a few steps to one of the other restaurants on this street.
friendly, knowledgable service and great beer.
The best parts about this place are the service and the beer. It can get loud, but it is a fun atmosphere.
If busy, the food may take a while, but snacks like pesto garlic fries are worth the wait. Burgers are awesome---try the Redwood Coast burger, with blue cheese, bacon, and homemade chipotles tartar sauce---yum!
Also, the tortilla soup and santa fe bbq salad are good selections!
OK if you a going to a Shark's game..
My girlfriends and I went this past Sat. night. I guess because we weren't wearing any Sharks-wear, we were basically ignored from the moment we sat down. It took almost an hour for us to get our food - and that was after waiting 20 minutes for someone to come take our order. None of us were too impressed with the food either. I don't know what this place would be like if there wasn't a game, but I wouldn't go back.
It's loud inside and was difficult to hear everyone who was at our table.
You can't go wrong with the beer at this award-winning brewhouse..
Big beer halls with tall ceilings accommodate huge vats of tasty brews at this location, which also has a particularly attractive patio area. At Tied House, young professionals mingle with serious beer connoisseurs in a sports fan-friendly environment.
Tied House brews have received many awards, including 13 Great American Beer Festival medals. The Cascade amber is the most popular and is quite good. The Alpine Gold ale is clean in both hop aroma and finish. Look for seasonal brews such as the strong IPA. Pair your pints with pub grub like burgers, a sausage sampler plate and the huge servings of black-bean nachos.
Hockey Heaven. I visited the brewery last night and was told that they would have the NHL hockey package again this year. I spent a lot of time at the Tied House last season, they were always willing to put on whatever game I wanted to see and they have added even more tvs. Food is good and reasonable and the beer as always is great!
A sports bar?. How does this place get nominated for "best sports bar" but perhaps the voters have never been to a sports bar? Does this place even have satellite tvs? if they do, do they get more than 1 or 2 feeds? I don't think so.
