    which places have you visited in the past that you didn't like?

      I found Commonwealth somewhat disappointing. Abbott's Cellar's food is decently good, atmosphere is fun, beer and wine list is awesome.

        Rethinking The Abott's Cellar. Despite being on T&L's list of best of SF, the reviews are all over the place. Perhaps just a few beers at Monk's will suffice.

          I think that makes sense. There are better places for food and you can get great beer at Monk's Kettle, or elsewhere.

            And if you go for beers at Monk's Kettle you can get the pretzel, which is the sine qua non of pretzels.

            St. Vincent has a great beer list. I think the food's great, some people don't get it.

            Given the places on that list, you'd be pretty sure to like Bar Jules.
