Visited the brewpub today, and since it was my fourth visit and first time eating there, I figured this was a good time to post a review.
My wife, daughter and I paid a visit after spending the day at the Academy of Sciences, and we stopped in for an early dinner and some drinks. I wouldn't say that it is exactly kid friendly, since they don't have a kid's menu, but my daughter was welcomed and they altered their quesadilla to fit her tastes. My wife and I shared the carnitas quesadilla and we had no complaints about it at all. It was very good.
The beer, as expected was good. Between the two of us, we tried the 5 South Pale Ale, Ugly Sweater Winter IPA, and Roasted American. Ugly Sweater was a little above average, but the other two were very good. I liked the 5 South so much, I refilled my growler with it.
Now, the complaints. In regards to the growler, it cost $18 to refill it. That's far too much for a growler refill for a non-special beer, and I can't say I'll be refilling mine again, unless it's something amazing.
My other complaint was the service. Our waitress didn't seem to have a clue. Her attitude was one of apathy, and she had a lot of trouble getting our order straight. When she first came to us, I asked for a ginger soda, a pint of Roasted American, and a sample of the Ugly Sweater and the 5 South. It took her going over the order three times to repeat it correctly, and then when she came back , she brought the first two drinks, but only one sampler. I enjoyed it, and based on the description of the beers on their drink list, I was pretty sure it was the 5 South. When she came back around, I asked what I had, and she told me it was the Ugly Sweater. I was skeptical, but ordered a pint of it anyway. When the beer came to the table, it was clear that what I had a sample of was not the Ugly Sweater. It wasn't the end of the world, but when you work in a brewpub, you should know what beer you're serving.
Other than those two aspects, our visit was a good one, as my other visits were. The atmosphere was nice, and the beer is good enough that I'll pay another visit when I'm in the area.

Made the mistake of visiting just prior to a Giants game. The place was so packed that it took about 10 minutes just to walk across the room. Needless to say, my wife and I couldn't find a place to stand (let alone sit) without being in the way.
After a while, we found ourselves at the upstairs bar, tucked into a corner. We eventually got service, but the bartender to patron ratio was EXTREMELY low. Basically, after an hour visit, we each had one beer, and at that rate, it wasn't worth staying.
The one beer we had was Hell or High Watermelon. Very good fresh. Nice watermelon garnish. Quality overall was outstanding. But the atmosphere and service suffered.
The selection was good- it is what you'd expect- a good range of 21st Amendment Beers.
Overall, I would NOT recommend going when a ball game is in town. It could be worth revisiting on a "normal" day to see what it's like...

This is a pretty good place and a good stop before or after a Giants game.
Fairly large, open-concept restaurant with a decent sized bar. Lacks the typical San Francisco beer bar feel that I found (and liked) in most places but was still nice.
The beer is above average but nothing to write home about. Food was also above average.
