My husband, a friend and I had lunch here one day on our trip, they had the pulled pork sliders, and I had a reuben sandwich. All were excellent. The beer was cold and the food hot, and the price reasonable.

The Taphouse is located right next to the Big Sur Deli and the Big Sur Post Office. We have a pet friendly, large outdoor patio with a beautiful view of the Santa Lucia Mountains. Stop by and try one of our 10 craft brewes on tap or a glass of wine. We also feature live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Come stop by and see us!
