Went to this place for the first time last weekend. They are in Santa Rosa and on 4th street. It s a little tough to find a spot if you come in during rush hour but that isn t a big problem because most places are packed at that time. If anything it means that their food is worth the wait. I got the fried cod and crisps which was tasty. They had draft specials and nightly deals for drinks. Worth a stop in. The Irish selection was smaller than I would have liked but I took that more as an indictment on what people in CA are willing to eat than what they actually want to offer.
The Stout Brothers offer a good bit of variety in their menu. They have a selection for class Irish pub food (the bangars and mash, fish and chips, a kebab as well I think) but they also have standard American pub fare for your more picky friends. The burgers are delicious and I love the wings.
Stout Brothers is a pub in Santa Rosa that specializes in authentic irish food. When you walk in you are in a very large and open dining area. There is a big wooden bar that is usually tended by a pair of quick servers. The food is good and a little pricey, which is normal for the style of food. I really like their beer here too. They have all of the standard draft choices and then some neat local flavors. This is a great place to grab a beer with the guys and watch a game.
One of the best bar / restaurants I have been to in a long time. The service was great the 2 times I have been, Friendly and quick. The food is some of the best irish pub food I have had in a long time. I had the wedge salad and it was so good I have started making something like it at home. I also have had the sliders and they are the best sliders I have ever had not dry at all. My husband had the shepherds pie and ate every last bite.
The ambiance is great and the live music is fun. All in all I give them 5 stars and would definitely go back.
This place has the worst service ever. We went in two separate times (thought we'd give them a second chance) the same thing happened as it did the first........came in sat down at the table, bar tender looked over saw me sitting, continued to talk to the kitchen staff, never smiled said hi or someone will be with you. Meanwhile the staff was on the side hall folding napkins, eating, and let us sit. We walked out, told them we'd been sitting and waiting and she argued we just sat down. If a customer is not acknowledged in the the first 2 minutes they walk in the door they will walk out. Yes we walked out after 5 - 10 minutes. Very bad and after the last review about the food, will never come back and let everyone else know!!!
As a bar, this is a good place to go. As a restaurant this ranks at about the bottom. The service is ok and the food is just plain awful. I had the lamb stew and couldn't eat it with the amount of salt used in it. My girlfriend had some kind of pasta that was sour.
I was hoping for a good Irish pub to arrive in Santa Rosa but this is not the one.
