Good Beer & Bar Food Option.
Tied House is good option for a place to go to after work with some friends. This is your typical MicroBrew place but the size of the place is huge. Their speciality is the Beer of course! And they do a good job on it. I would recommend their Beer Sampler. It's $9 and you can sample 8-10 beers all served in 6oz glasses. Give you a good taste of everything and plenty of beer. If not they have plenty of choices and beers will cost around $6 for a pint.
The food here is good too. I would say for "Bar Food" it's a step up from most places but not definately not "fine dinning". Prices here are reasonable too you can get a good size burger for about $9and most meals come under $14.
I would come back here again but would try to avoid Friday & Saturday because the place gets busy and you may have to wait. But it's a great place say on a Wednesday after work to meet with some friends, catch the game, drink some beer, and have some good food.
Great whenever you go.....
The Tied House is a good bet, day or night. Nothing is better than The Tied House downtown San Jose on a Friday afternoon during the Farmers Market. The food is excellent, the beer is great and the people watching is priceless!
You can't go wrong with the beer at the Tied House. You can, however, go wrong with the menu.. Brews We Like The Cascade Amber is the most popular, and is quite good. The Alpine Gold ale is clean in both hop aroma and finish. Look for seasonal brews such as the strong IPA.
Bites We Like Stay away from anything that sounds complicated (citrus shrimp, apple gorgonzola salad, et cetera). Stick with pub grub like the burgers, sausage sampler plate and the huge black bean nachos.
The Look Big beer halls with tall ceilings to accommodate the huge vats full of tasty brews. The San Jose location has a particularly attractive patio area.
The Crowd Young professionals mingle with serious beer snobs in a sports-fan-friendly environment.
The Critics Agree The Tied House beers have received many awards for the brews, including 13 Great American Beer Festival medals.
