Great Hamburgers – What fun place it is for after work cocktails and supper.
Fair food, very NOISY place. – I can't comment on the beer since I don't drink. The food: unremarkable. It's not bad, but I think it's fine for what it offers. Some items are bit overpriced for what you get, but that's just my opinion. My dessert was outstanding. What I was unprepared for was the NOISE. This place is LOUD. Its cavernous size along with the slick surfaces doesn't help. I could barely have a conversation and I was seated away from the bar. I've been here twice, but the noise is way too much for me handle. Service was horrible the first time; on my second visit it was fine. If you like breweries with the loud, after work crowd all preening to look and sound important, this place is for you.
Lunch find – I tried this place twice now on business lunches, so did not get to sample the attractive beer menu. I have had the Bay Bridge burger with a side salad and El Cubano sandwich with sweet potato crisps. Both were extremely tasty and BIG. They have a nice sandwich and burger menu all priced around $10. A major plus is they have outstanding Iced tea.
The place had a bustling lunch crowd, but was comfortable due to the airey feel of the place. Service was adequate - fast first time, slow the next. I will go again.
The Best – Easily the best Brewpub in the city. I have toured most of the pubs in the bay area and I always come back to the 21st Amendment. Most places have either good food or good beer, but never both. This place is a rarety in that the food is always excellent and the beer is amazing. With some great service, you can't go wrong. The Double Trouble IPA is over the top, mucho hops! My girlfriend is a freak for there Watermelon Wheat..shhh, I kinda like it too. Yum!
Bad attitude – The food at this place is ok but over-priced. What makes the whole experience AWFUL is the bad service and bad attitdue of the wait-staff (the busboys do a great job). Are these people all former dot-comers angry at the world? I could understand on game day it might be difficult but they are rude every day at lunch. I will never go back there. The bartendress in particular does not like her joab and you will know it.
I really like this place – Great, casual atmosphere with great brews and burgers. Try the chili! Nice place to unwind, unpretentious and friendly. Reasonable prices.
Great Neighborhood Place – I hate to see angry "reviews" from someone who's been to a place once, and probably in a bad mood. 21st Amendment is my local restaurant/bar and it's great to have such a cool place nearby. The food is consistently better than any of the other local places, the beer is the BEST in the city (I've heard many people say this), and the service has been uniformly warm, welcoming and professional since the first day I went in. Also-their prices are more reasonable than anyone alse in this hood.
Nickle and dime you to death – We came in with a large group. The food was fair but the service was terrible. We spent 350.00 and we were charged a dollar for refills on the kid's drinks and 4.00 was added to the check as misc. food. When I questioned one of the kids asked for extra meat on the pizza?? The steak dinner was served with a mound of pink stringy potatoe chips. I would not return to this restaurant.
Excellent place!! – Had a great dinner here: nice, laid-back atmosphere, good food, and the north star red was excellent!
Great Beer, Good Food, Loud Crowd!!! – The recent review in the Chronicle hits the nail on the head for this Brewery/Resturant just a few blocks up from PacBell Park. I have stopped in a few times with friends on game days and have yet to be dissapointed with this great addition to the local brewery scene. If you are in the mood for some great beer and damned good food before or after the game this is definitely one place you should check out. It does get packed so be prepared for an extremely raucous scene (as it should be). As for happy hour you can't beat the prices and it is a more intimate atmosphere, perfect for a large after work gathering. Do yourself a favor and try the watermelon wheat beer before they run out again...trust me you won't be dissapointed.
