Foursquare Tips

  • They have alcoholic Ginger Beer, try it! And the Lagunitas Brown Sugga when it's on tap. THAT IS ALL
  • At night you can request a blanket & still sit outside!
  • The fried brussel sprouts are hella good!!!
  • Delicious food but slow. They only have one bathroom which means a long wait every time wtf? Also they only serve some of their beer in pitchers, weird and obnoxious.
  • Garbage bread makes a perfect shareable happy hour snack.
  • This gem off of Lake Merritt feels like a secret, even if its packed by 11 a.m. more often than not. A vegetarian-leaning menu and excellent beer list are major draws, as is its expansive back patio.
  • Always a great selection of beers here, had a good brunch here too, overall a pretty cool place, obviously the balcony in back is their signature.
  • Great little hidden gem, the food is amazing as well as the staff. Had the Hard Cider and I'm totes a fan.
  • .... & more
  • Lagunitas Sucks on tap!
  • I'm not vegetarian, but the Tempe burger just blew my mind.
  • Definitely sit out in the patio, enjoy some sun and beautiful view of Lake Merrit.
  • Great(!!!) outdoor patio facing the Lake!
  • Turkey slider is better than chicken slider! Just get 2 turkey sliders.
  • Love the brunch. Chilaquiles were on point and the steak add-on was grilled to perfection. Awesome atmosphere and attentive staff. Get there early as it fills up quick!
  • there's gonna be a line, so order a bloody, a beer, a libation then wait on the patio for your table :) don't be afraid to share a patio table, you'll meet some cool peeps!
  • Portal is a wonderful gastropub! Lots of food, super friendly service, Queer Beer Wednesday, and great views of Lake Merritt!
  • Chicken wings here are good to go and the outdoor area is amazing during warmer days.
  • Garbage bread! I'd come back just for that. Oh the giant selection of tasty beers is a plus too.
  • Cute spot for brunch. Bottomless mimosas FTW.
