Sunday morning found me here after Tom of Finland Art yardsale. A nice outside dining experience without exhaust in your face. i had the Orange Chicken Bowl. yum. My partner had the Club Sandwich - with Sweet Potato fries - i stole some of those. Bottomless Mimosa served Sunday morning.

came in for a quick breakfast before shopping at the farmer's market--- food took forever to come and was lukewarm at best. Obviously sat in window a while. When the check came, it seemed really high for just breakfast ------ on closer inspection, a 20% tip had been added on AFTER tax! The server never mentioned it, we were only a party of 4 (two were kids) and the charge slip still had a blank tip line! This is preying on people who don't look at a check closely and will then tip DOUBLE. Not a good practice, especially in times like this when people can't go out to eat as often as they'd like to. I work in the resaurant industry and I know that I will not be going back to GOOD. Nice servers, but maybe it's just because most people fall for this scam and they are laughing all the way to the bank!

My girlfriend and I always eat and drink at good. What a great place and find in our neighoorhood. Good food nice vibe and the staff is always very attentive. Good has it's own crowd and it's a real cool place. Once you plug into the vibe here you understand why its' called good! Other places are wanna be's when it comes to the beers at good microbrew.

Thought i would give this place one more try...went for the New Year 2009! New Years lunch...since GOOD kept sending emails about being open all holidays, christmas and new years...blah blah blah.
They were busy but get this...we had to wait 45 minutes for our order!!! Good is NOT GREAT! And not only did we have to wait...a lot of items on the menu werent even available...what!?!?
Refills? Dont even think about it...oh and get this...a couple came in (yes we were still waiting for our food) and the waiter straight told them 45-50 minute wait on orders.
Thats it NEVER going back...like i said it's good (sometimes) definitely NOT GREAT!

We had been to Good once before... Let me stop there. I simply can't continue to refer to this restaurant by name... it just feels like such a lie! This place is anything but ""good."" In fact, it should trade names with the establishment across the street, Malo.
Other than the interesting beer selection, there is nothing worth seeing here. The food is mediocre at best, often served lukewarm and then reheated upon request after, of course a disgruntled harrumph from the server. The menu at first glance seems promising, but fails to deliver on any of those promises. Even the French Press coffee is initially enticing, until it arrives and you realize that your local 7-11 has a better brew. For the money, get your grind on, down the street at Intelligencia.
One more oddity... our server was cold, disingenuous, unfriendly and slow... and that was before she saw her 15% tip.

I have been a customer for years, the food was never great but the servers were very friendly and sometimes seemed frightend. The trouble was always there, but because my partner and I are creatures of habit, we would visit about once a week spending about 32.00 a visit. We were loyal, then last year something went really wrong, the owner seemed to be so uptight you could feel his tension, everytime we ate something was either,,A: burned, B: wrong C: missing D: cold E: brought out 1/2 an hour after others had been served. If you complained the waiters seemed scared ( almost wanting you to just eat it) One time I took some friends and they asked me if I was nuts because I put up with such bad service. Its too bad because money is tight and if im going to spend it, it wont be at GOOD. By the way, be careful and dont ask for extra butter!!!!! ( even if you offer to pay for it!) For the money, Dustys down the street is much better or even Astros a place that knows its a greasy spoon!

Wow, I just got home from a terrible, overpriced dinner at Good. I ordered a burger to be ""medium well"" which turned out to be rare. The french fries were hard and cold. My husband's philly cheese steak was supposed to be ""thin slices of prime rib"" according to the menu, but it was more like think slices of cardboard stuck between 2 slices of soggy bread. The onion rings were the worst I've ever tasted, and OH! I forgot the prices. SO OVER-PRICED! That cheeseburger I managed to eat a few bites of costs $13. I would have rather been at Carl's Junior!

A friend of mine not being a beer drinker with her, single twenty something friends wanted to go out for a night on the town (I'm in my late 30's and married) mentioned good microbrew and grill. They were reluctant but we all went anyway; We are all we did! Yes, it's a beer drinker's paradise but it's also a non-beer drinker's type of place as well. They have these specialty flavored beers just for people like my friend who are novice with beer. Some type of apple/pear combination that was wonderful! The service was great! The patio is fabulous and can get full very quickly; pets are welcomed on the patio. On Mystery Beer night it can get crowded very quickly.

If you're a beer enthusiast, you've got experience Good at least once. The sheer number of bottle labels as well as a good number on tap (both in house & commercial) make it worth the trip if you reside in LA county.
I had the beer sampler which included a good in-house hefe and IPA. Since I didn't order any food I can't comment on that. The area in Silver Lake is ok and seems to be making somewhat of a ""comeback"" with the artsy and tatooed crowd.

The place really needs a new fan for the kitchen. It is always hot and smoky. Though they do have sidewalk seating and a comfortable atmosphere. The prices are high for mediocre food. I most likely will be back for the beer, but will probably not eat there again.

Everything on the menu looks great though, so I wouldn't mind going back to try the burgers next time with their onion rings. Great beer selection, as well as specialty beers from all over the world. I love the patio on Sunset Blvd watching all the cars and people go by. You don't have to be a Rocket Scientist to realize that this is a place where good food and microbrews can be found.

We have been coming here for over 4years and it gets better all the time. Heated patio, Big screen TVs. New menu that kept some of the old favorites. I can see myself hanging at Good Microbrew for 20 years! You may love most of the menu but when you are ""having more than one"" you must try their Beer Battered onion rings and their new burger called the Exorcism Burger which is possessed with a ?Monster Crispy Melted Cheddar Cheese Halo.? This Burger is the BOMB as they say! Good Microbrew is Tops in Silver Lake before a club or after a show!

Why is it that people say one thing then flake out and want to trash you? Let's be a man about it and man up to it! Mistakes happen and unfortunately when it rains it pours. A small problem turns into a nightmare for an employee and then suddenly they are being trashed and accused of stealing! No one and I mean no one at good steals. I can vouch that all of the employees at good are honest and hard working! The key here is honesty and being above board. To say everything is ok when the problem is corrected and then to go ahead and trash someone is cowardly. Why not just say it to my face! Customers like this will never be satisfied and will always be looking to get something for nothing!

This has never happened to me before, and it was important enough for me to post on this site.
We went to this place last weekend - and the overall service we got was dismal. I usually am not picky about service, but this was over the top. Our waitress seemed a bit out of it, and forgot to come back to our table to take our order once she took our drink order.
I tracked her down after 10 to 12 minutes, and she took our order. Then, it took THREE tries before they got my wife's salad right. Even then, it had no dressing on it, so my wife passed on her salad and shared my plate (which was unimpressive).
The bill came out to about 40 bucks, and even though we didn't think it was fair to be charged that much for an awful experience, we wanted to just pay and get out of there. We decided (something we never do) that we'd leave a very small tip to reflect the poor service. I paid by credit card, and left 2 dollars with the bill in cash as tip. We left, and that was that.
Yesterday, I checked my account online, and to my amazement, 6 dollars had been added to my final bill on my credit card as tip. IT IS A CRIMINAL OFFENSE to fraudulently alter a customer's bill - all for 6 dollars. I am outraged that the wait staff would tamper with my receipt this way. If they wanted the tip, perhaps they should have actually provided my wife and I with some service. Instead, they gave us HORRIBLE service, and decided to steal from us by forging our receipt.
I have already requested a copy of the receipt from my cc company, and I am going to be contacting this establishment - not only to get my 6 dollars back, but to make sure whoever did this is held to account.
Please beware if you do decide to eat at this place - don't expect much by way of service or the taste of their food. And pay in cash, because your wait staff may decide to steal from you if you pay with a credit card.

The new menu at Good has been great so far. Because I live in the neighborhood, I'm there at least once and week (obviously, I like it a lot). It's a welcoming neighborhood restaurant with great bartenders, involved and a friendly owner, and eager-to-please waitstaff.
