Came here for one thing and one thing only: BOTTOMLESS CHAMPAGNE BRUNCH. Needless to say, this place won in Food, Service, and Bottomless Indulgence.
Champagne brunch is until till 3p on Saturdays and Sundays and is an additional $10 to your meal. Based on the long wait and every table in the house taken, everyone was digging this. We arrived at about 1pm on a Sunday and were seated about 30 minutes later. There is not a good place to wait anywhere as the small lobby was already standing room only with all the other waiting people. Outside is also not a good place to wait since tables lined the entire walk way and sidewalk. There is however one redeeming factor here though: you can get started on your mimosas early before you sit. If you are standing around and holding an empty glass, a server will gladly fill it to the brim with mimosa everytime they pass. They just ask that you save your receipt and show it to your server so that they will credit your bill for when you are finally seated. Super duper awesome perk.
Peaches was the manager at the time, and she was working as hard, if not harder, than her staff to make sure that customers were being served and that there was not an empty champagne glass on our table. I made sure to go out of my way to let her know that we appreciated the extra effort she exerted for her customers. The champagne brunch deal already won me over, but the customer service is what will make me a fan for life.
-=-XXX Mac and Cheese-=- It's plain mac cheese without all the frills (lobster, truffle, etc), but for some odd reason it was still damn good. The perfect blend of cheeses just did it and every bite coupled with that crispy garlic bread was downright outrageous for my mouth.
-=-Mushroom Burger-=- No frills here, but I was still satisfied. I preferred all the other foods that I saw passing our table, but I still had no complaints about the mushroom burger. My next endeavor here would probably be breakfast or the mac and cheese burger. Fries were nothing special, but I also did not take advantage of the $2 upgrade to sweet potato fries. Portion was fairly large thanks to the fries.
I'm coming back and I'm bringing my appetite, liver, and my other liver.

Opened in June 2004, I discovered this place one day when I decided to take the "scenic route" home from Hollywood-- driving on Sunset Blvd all the way back to East LA. Decorated in a very modern and artsy manner, this place sort of reminds me of a little brother to the Yardhouse but more decently priced. Stocked with hundreds of bottles of beer from various microbrewerys, you will almost assuredly find a beer of your choice to go along with a very decent meal.
Good is a great place to have a meal and beer. There is a special theme every night-- whether its $2 mystery beer Wednesdays, or Half off Tuesdays, you can be assured there is a deal almost any night. Their food menu is pretty expansive and fun. The menu, which consists of comfort and pub foods is all blended and named after a type of beer. If you go on a weekend (Friday or Saturday), you have to try out their Prime Rib Special. Moist and Delicious, it is definitely worth the trip. Especially good are their Mississippi Mud Beer Battered Onion Rings (I do admit a little bias as i am a HUGE fan of Mississippi Mud).
I do have some gripes about this restaurant though. Most it really just stems from their early closing hours. Being a microbrewery, I would expect it to be atleast open late nights on the weekends. They close at around 11.30 on weekends and 10.30 on weekdays. Very strange, but somewhat understandable considering that a lot of Silverlake is closed pretty early too.
Whether you are looking for a dark candlelit place for a date or just want to be a little bit of a beer connessiour with some buddies, I do recommend you try out Good.
