I had the beet salad (for $6.00 it was full of 3 kinds of beets and delicious). But my son (who knows better) got the pretzel with a deli mustard, horseradish and this cheese sauce that was to die for. Beer was cold and BIG...More

We stopped by on a recommendation from a friend and we are glad we did! The surprise was the outdoor seating which could have been a problem if it was any colder. The brat and gnomeburger were excellent. We wish we were here longer to...More

I loved this place. Shipping containers turned into the kitchen and service area. They were professionally built with a contemporary flair - not cheap. Nicely equipped. Lots of tables in the fenced in biergarten and lots of nice fun people. We drank lots of great...More

Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky
shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to
imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of
