    This is my place to go watch my games. Football is very good and the all you can eat is worth it. Lots of food and 3 drinks for $27. If they don't have it the cook will make what you want with the ingredients they have. Blast 825 Brewery in Orcutt.
    Blast has reopened and has the same great atmosphere that I love. Great place to hang out with friends and meet people. Menu has changed some and food is still great. Lots of TVs that go very well if your a sports fan. Self tapping beers is always very fun. Definitely check out the new pizza oven and the outdoor patio.

    So good! The food was fresh and hot. The French fries were outstanding. Our server Cody was all all around wonderful! We will be back!:)

    Had dinner there last night.  We were sat out in their tent, heaters worked great.  We had the slow roasted beef dip, it was GREAT!!  Cooked just right.  Our waiter was right on.  Our dinner was very enjoyable and we will be back!  Just hope we can soon, but with our Governor shutting things down, might be awhile.

    Heard Blast was back to being open after the fire and couldn't resist going in for my favorite pizza. Of course it was wonderful. Major props for Blast bouncing back so quickly.  We also had a great waitress. She was so funny and made sure we had everything we wanted. Especially my never ending requests for ranch haha. I think her name is Anne. So keep up the great work and food! I wish I could have their pizza for thanksgiving haha

    First time visiting and unfortunately they recently had a kitchen fire so the food options were limited to mainly pizzas. They have a diverse selection of beers and offer cocktails as well. I had the Liquid Gravity kiwi strawberry IPA which was pretty good! They do have a beer wall where you'd be allowed to pour your own beer prior to COVID, but currently a waitress will pour whichever beer you want for you. Pretty big venue with both indoor and outdoor seating. Lots of TVs to watch various sports. Has a parking lot attached but also plenty of street parking. Overall a solid place to snack on food and watch a game over some brews.

    Ashley, Olivia, Christian and the rest of the team did an amazing job serving our large party this afternoon. They were super friendly and accommodating. The food was fantastic, the beer selection extensive and the atmosphere was fun. I would highly recommend the steak bite appetizer, the Brussel and bacon pizza, or the steak salad.

  • Oct 27, 2020 by Kevin Durham

    I was impressed with the food and beer. I had the Thai pizza and pandemic IPA and was very happy with both.

    Came out to Blast for date night. Our server Tre was the best! He had an upbeat personality, was attentive and took our experience from good to exceptional. Great job Blast and Tre.. it's establishments and employees such as this that make for a great ambiance and overall experience. Date night at Blast, was nothing short of a great evening! The customer experience far exceeded my expectation. Given the world we currently live in I expected there to be a long wait, to my surprise the friendly hostess let us know the wait would be 10 to 15 minutes. Sure enough we were seated within 10 minutes! Our server, Carmen was attentive ,friendly, and kept the drinks coming. Oh and our food it was out within 20 minutes of being seated. The food was amazing.. the tri tip, so tender it melts in your mouth. The ambiance and atmosphere was inviting and fun. We will be back! Thank you to the Blast team, you helped make date night amazing

    Great food and chill vibes!! I got a happy hour beer for only $3 and tasty fries. If you're looking for a great place to have fun with friends, come here!!!

    Great beer and great atmosphere. Our server Angel was very attentive and made us feel so welcomed.

  • Oct 18, 2020 by Liz R.

    Let me start out by saying...I'm old. So my friend and I were looking for a place where we could eat outside and social distance. Don't want to get sick! A couple of her friends recommended Blast 825 Brewery so that's how we ended up here. We got there right at 11 so we could pick our table (outside farthest corner so no one needed to walk past us). It was perfect! Then our server, Jake, came to our table. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful. He and a couple other servers checked on us multiple times. We were very well taken care of. I ordered the grilled artichoke and a side salad while my friend order a pizza and cookie. All the food was delicious and at the perfect temperature. But that "cookie"; it was huge! It's served warm.  Yum. I'll definitely be going there again and asking for Jake to be our server.

    The patio is great. Food very good and Ashley our server was friendly and attentive.

    This place has delicious food!!! The chips and dip was delicious, pretzel and cheese was just as amazing. We also had chili cheese fries and pizza! Everything was delicious!! If we go back to Solvang area we will be back!!

    Not sure what the 825 stands for but I did have a blast.  Yeah, I know corny central! Was here last Sunday to enjoy some 49er  with some friends and we of course sat outside! We enjoyed a wonderful win and cheered as we watched with other 49er fans. They had a few tv's outside and they were playing all the other games too. They sat us all accordingly which was great, we got to meet new local and not so local 49er fans and (cough-cough) the rest of them. Jake was our server, and he was incredible!!! He was patient, moved fast and was such a crowd pleaser. Even though he was moving a mile a minute, he was polite and smiled and we never ran dry!! So, thank you Jake for being you and handling this hungry, thirsty crowd they way you did. We appreciate you! I will also have to acknowledge the rest of the wait staff/hostess were also very nice  I hadn't been to this location since it was Rooney's and that was a while back so needed a refresher on the open beer taps. They were nice and took the time to explain it all. We will definitely be back! See y'all soon! Go Niners!

  • Sep 29, 2020 by Christy A.

    Ashley H (the pink hair goddess)was epic!! She greeted us shortly after the hostess seated us and was very helpful with menu selections. The food was superb  we got the loaded tots, a bowl of chili with cornbread and the 3topping pizza special followed with a brookie  #foodcoma AMAZING FOOD!!! we had our company holiday party today and not only was everything we ordered scrumdiddlyumptious but Ashley H. was the BEST waitress and the icing on the cake!! Seriously even with temp issues on a few of the items she made up for it with her attentiveness and great personality!! Thank you Ashley H. for making our first visit one to remember and a reason to return

  • Sep 27, 2020 by Alejandra J.

    Love the atmosphere, music, and drinks! Our server Jake, was such a sweetheart. Set up a mimosa bar by bringing us all types of juices! This is the kind of service all restaurants should have. I'll be coming here again! Food is amazing!

    Blast was really good. There is ample seating indoor in shade and outdoors. Service employees wore masks and were very attentive. Kudos to them. I really liked my fish n chips and friend enjoyed her salmon salad!! Would recommend

    Pricey but so savory. We have eaten there twice and heartily recommend the sweet chili wings with the blue cheese dip , the chicken pizza, potato chips, and the fish and chips. My husband says that is the best fish and chips he has ever eaten--this after living on Puget Sound in WA for over 10 years.

    Recently revisited with my daughters. Tons of outdoor seating available and staff was extremely pleasant and very efficient. Food arrived in a timely manner and everything we ordered was delish!! More reasonable priced items on the menu and even some lunch specials on the week day. Can't wait to come back So haven't been here in forever especially since the new ownership and name change. Yes I know.....that's a long time. To be honest I was more than pleasantly surprised. The place is always busy on a weekend night so beware. Got there early and was able to get a seat without waiting. Ordered the steak bites and side salad, my daughters had the tri tip sandwich and the other one had a veggie pizza. All food came within a reasonable time. Delicious, tasty and service was amazing. Can't wait to go back. My only complaint is the prices are very expensive for a local bar and casual gathering place. Other than that.....

  • Sep 14, 2020 by d c

    Love this place!
    Staff is very friendly and accomodating of very well behaved dogs which works out great for our hospice dog Hank.
    My favorite things to order are bacon wrapped shrimp, steak bites(medium rare), fish(heavy breading) and chips, cobb salad without the blue cheese and wine margaritas made with white zin.
    Other tasty bites are Brussel sprouts and loaded tater tots.

  • Sep 13, 2020 by Gail S.

    First time here. The service great, however I was a little disappointed with what I got. Steak bites I order med-rare came out raw and only warm as if they hit the fire for a second. My daughters calamari was setting on a pile of grease. She had to take a napkin to soak up the grease. Plus the texture was weird. We also ordered pizza for the kids and the pizza was great.  My daughter has had the calamari before and was so disappointed with it.

    Wow! Wow! Wow! Amazing service... courtesy of Jake! He was an awesome server for our party of 27. Thank you JAKE!! We appreciate YOU

  • Sep 05, 2020 by Lorena G.

    First time here. The food was great and the service was outstanding! Jake was awesome, he took care of our large party like no one else could. Definitely recommending this beautiful place.

  • Aug 26, 2020 by Lupe A.

    We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and it did not disappoint! They had outdoor seating and we're very busy. But the server was on top of it!! He greeted us, brought our drinks and appetizer quickly! My hubby ordered the Ribeye which was huge and char broiled, it had the best flavor! I had a burger and it was really good too! Definitely a 'must visit' place if you have never been here! Loved it!

  • Aug 26, 2020 by Kari B.

    Should maybe consider getting new servers who care. The bussers seem to check on us more.

  • Aug 22, 2020 by Mike S.

    Unfortunately the Grubhub app and Blast's systems don't communicate very well. This place needs to hire a few adults. Extremely disappointed in how this place gets worse with each visit.

  • Aug 21, 2020 by Gaby A.

    Food was delicious and was served in a timely manner. Jake, our server, was very friendly and gave great service! Definitely had a blast

  • Aug 16, 2020 by Elisa B.

    As visitors from out of town we were looking for something good. This place was great. We loved everything but the roasted Brussel sprouts. They were a bit over roasted which made them bitter but everything else was great. Beef dip was delicious. The chili fries divine. Chicken wings spicy and meaty and cheese pizza got a kid's thumbs up. Bring a sweater and pants because patio seating gets super chilly.

  • Aug 07, 2020 by Evan D.

    I got a raw burger for take-out. There was zero seasoning or flavor. The "cooks" either don't care or haven't been trained at all. Have they ever heard of pepper and salt, maybe garlic? The sauce had no flavor either. All-around probably one of the worst burgers I've ever had. The fries were also tasteless. A monkey could cook better than them hahaha.

  • Aug 02, 2020 by Tom Balestrieri

    Beer wall always has great beers that are rotating often and their food is great. Pizza is exceptional as well as the burgers. Also the daily specials they have are a must try.

  • Jul 27, 2020 by Madison C.

    Amazing! Angel was attentive and super sweet. His drink recommendations were on point and we got multiple of the drinks he recommended. He came over immediately when I sat down which was awesome since I was sitting alone! The food was great and the outdoor seating was big and spacious, very covid safe. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for dinner or drinks in orcutt!

  • Jul 25, 2020 by Kim Z.

    We practically live there.  The Food is amazing!! The staff is so kind and considerate.  I am picky about kindness and I keep coming back.  Blast 825 continually surprises us with new recipes by Chef Juan and his crew.  Thank you for your outdoor sanitary mask wearing hard workers!!!!!! We appreciate you all

  • Jul 25, 2020 by Michael S.

    Great beer and food. Service was great! Thanks Angel !! Salmon salad was really good!  Definitely recommend this place!!  Good selection of beer.

  • Jul 25, 2020 by Brittney P.

    Great patio seating especially during covid, they created such a great atmosphere. Amazing and attentive service by Angel, he was so friendly and happy to serve in a safe and positive matter. Zero wait time and the food was hot and delicious.

  • Jul 23, 2020 by Bradley M.

    I really don't like to give local businesses bad reviews however I have given this place numerous tries and each time my experience has gotten worse. My latest visit on 7/22/20 was awful! My Mom and I sat outside in hoping to enjoy some cold ones and apps. Our server acted like we were doing him a hug disservice by even sitting there, super disrespectful from the get go, didn't even know what was on tap and overall just a horrible attitude. So we order some beers along with an artichoke and calamari, all is well, we are outside enjoying some cold beer. Food arrives and the artichoke is not even cooked and the calamari is still frozen in the middle! We advise our server who could care less, didn't offer to replace it, didn't apologize, he basically acted like we ran his cat over. So we brush it off and finish our beverages, we hadn't seen our server since he took our food back.....about 20 minutes goes by and we ask another server for our bill....10 minutes goes by and I see our server so I raise my hand to signal we need our check, dude looks right at us and just walks the other direction. We had to go inside and the hostess asked him which bill was ours, he taps on the screen, says nothing to us...I don't even know why I gave him $5 but I did because that's just me. Its a real drag that a local spot like this has such terrible service and food. Step up your game, don't like your job? Move on, no need to treat people like crap just because you suck.

  • Jul 21, 2020 by Jackie R.

    I had the Beef Dip...flavor was AMAZING with the au jus sauce. Thinly sliced oak-grilled tri-tip . YES!!!! Ate outside on the side patio. Service was great!

  • Jul 19, 2020 by Brittany B.

    We love blast!!! I always recommend it to people! I do see alot of reviews about the service. I have had my fair share of good and bad waiters/waitresses. Not everyone is cut out for the job I get it! During these times I know we are all trying our best. I too work with people and some days its harder then others but sometimes we just need to fake our way through it. Your energy makes a huge impact on the comfort of your guests   Now for the food! I have a family of 5! All boys lol so they like to eat..haha.. Anyways, everything I have had here is good and has actually improved in flavor over time! I think there is a fairly new chef. He is doing a great job and improving the taste of the food! So honestly I don't mind paying the extra money for good food! And in my opinion Blast has exceeded my and my families expectations of food. We have had, burgers, mac and cheese, tri tip, tri tip sandwiches, French dips, pizza(my husband loves the Orcutt pizza) salads(do wish you had more selections) sliders, nachos, pretzels, fries(love the shoe string fries) pastas ect... Probably more just cant remember off the top of my head lol. But all dishes where enjoyed. Some more then other of course. Now for the Beers/cocktails! Really wish you had more hard cider options  but my husband and I still thoroughly enjoy the beer wall. Thank you for all your help and education on the wall its easy to get lost lol .  Now for your cocktails. They are good but extremely strong. I would double check and make sure your bar tenders aren't over pouring. You can loose alot of money that way as I am sure you already know this. That's all I had to share! Thank you Blast! We always have a blast with you guys!! Each time we go here it gets better. Service can use a little work which is why I put 4 stars. I strongly suggest going on a Wednesday for the tacos! Amazing! The most tender tri tip tacos I have ever had much better then the tacos in down town Santa Maria. And they have $2 pint beers on that day. But honestly every special they have is amazing. They have a great special for every day of the week. If you haven't tried BLAST825BREWERY I suggest you do! Went out with my friend around 830ish for dinner and drinks on a Monday night. Not a lot of people it was kind of nice. Great service and good drinks just a little pricey.‍ Then I came back the next week on a Friday on me and my husbands anniversary. We are definitely not a fan of the loud music. I guess they have a band on Friday's I dont know. My ears are still ringing from the noise lol. Don't get me wrong they where a great band. They should of had the band towards the back not right by the door. Couldnt really talk with my husband much either. My husband got the beer that was on the wall. He got 3 full glasses for $13. I was a little bummed because just for 2 cocktails that where no more the 8oz each we spent $24. And I have definitely had better drinks for a cheaper price. But I will still definitely be returning :-) But next time sticking with the beer wall. Definitely worth the experience. Food was really fresh... I mean they pickle there own jalepenos. Get there homemade potato chips with there AMAZING garlicky ranch. Calamari was real good, there tartare sauce was good. My husband got the cowboy blast burger. He asked for it to be medium rare but it was well done. We had a sweet waiter. You could tell he was fairly new but he did the best he could. He was such a sweetheart.

  • Jul 12, 2020 by Cody K.

    I understand the long waits during this hard time, but the food was soooooooo bad. Got a tri-tip sandwich thinking, "hey this should be good because it's Santa Maria." I was wrong. Worst I've ever had. Don't know about the other food tho..... Just don't get the tri-tip.... At least I was full.....

  • Jul 01, 2020 by Juan U.

    Third time visiting 2nd time during Covid19.  Other two times were 4 stars bit this time it was disappointing.  Ordered a pizza where I chose my own toppings but waiter neglected to tell me that it was $3 extra for tri tip. Had he mentioned it I would have skipped it. Got the pizza and it looked good, wasn't much tri tip on it for the $3, but the rest of the toppings were ok. Pizza looked amazing but when I went to pick up a slice it was super soggy in the middle.  Folded the middle in and ate it that way. When I was on my third slice I let my friend know how soggy it was and she mentioned hers was at well. Didn't complain about it because we were just glad to be out at a restaurant but they should definitely teach there staff how to improve the dough and baking process. Took the remaining half of the pizza home, warmed it up in the oven on a pizza stone, and still that dough was soggy! After picking off the toppings I threw it away! Their prices for everything were also a bit high. Don't know if it's due to the Covid19?! Hope they improve a bit but definitely won't order their pizza again!‍

    Really cool place! Thought it was a bar at first but it's 100% family friendly! The staff was really chill & I ordered the wings (Buffalo) they were delicious! I split 6 wings & a pizza with my friend, we both got full & only spent $20 each for beers, drinks, & food! It was a really good deal would go again.

  • Jun 23, 2020 by Phillis C.

    Perfect place for my husband and I! I'm not a beer drinker and my husband is so Blast is the best of both worlds. Great selection of spirits including selections from local distillers and the bartender always willing to discuss the various choices of spirits and beer. Food is good and you can't beat their $5 M-Thursday specials. Definitely a favorite spot!

  • Jun 18, 2020 by Eric F.

    3.75 actually.  Came by to meet up with some old friends as part of my visit to see my mom.  I was nervous at first because someone told me that they allowed staff and patrons to freely enter and walk about the restaurant without masks and they did not practice social distancing.  I was thinking that we could get situated in their outside patio but if it was too crowded that we would go somewhere else.  When we entered, all my worries faded because they did have appropriate notices and floor signage to remind people about social distancing and all staff I saw had masks and gloves.  We still decided to sit outside because their patio is spacious and comfortable.  We ordered beer and cocktails as well as the Wednesday offer of buy one get one free chicken wing orders.  Some of us used the self tap beer wall with the provided gloves.  As far as the food, I asked to make sure the wings were crispy.  As soon as they arrived, I checked for crispiness and they fell way short. I chose the buffalo and sweet chili and neither really hit the spot. The beers I had from the self tap beer wall were good.  Service from our server fell short. She was slow to take our order and to follow up with us.  I had a problem with the beer wall and was helped promptly and to my satisfaction.  Because of that experience,  i lifted what would have been a 2.5 service to 3.5.  Unlike the service from our server, the food came out promptly. Food: 3 Service: 3.5 Ambiance: 4.5 Value: 4

    Great food and amazing service! Fantastic menu selections we had delicious signature pizza and an outstanding tri-tip sandwich! Staff wore PPE covering and sanitizing cleanup between guests. we felt comfortable. Upbeat vibe with music. Seems like would be good place for families yet also for a fun night out. definitely coming back to try the burgers they looked amazing too

    My friend and I went here on Saturday after we were ignored at a neighboring restaurant for over 20 minutes. MUCH better atmosphere! Our server Angel was so attentive and friendly! Food was good. My salmon was just a bit salty but still delicious. Great cocktails! We will certainly be back

  • Jun 09, 2020 by Esther G.

    Good food.... onion rings were soggy when we got em... plus ordered wine... assumed it was a bottle for 28$.  Nope just a cup. Hamburger was great!!!!!

  • Jun 07, 2020 by Caitlin J.

    The food tonight was mediocre at best. We went out and know this is the covid world, but If you want to feel good about a restaurant taking precautions to protect you, maybe pick a different restaurant. Everyone including the manager takes their mask off when not directly interacting with you. When the masks are on, typically their nose isn't covered. No one was wearing single use gloves as their sign states. You might think, well you are risking something going out right now, yes I get that, but If they are being that inconsistent front of the house, I can gauruntee back of the house is no better. Talked to the manager, instead of saying, you are right we will do better, he just said, we are on them about it, what more can I do. Not impressed, food didn't redeem the situation at all.

    Blast 825 is now open for dine in! Glad to be back and see familiar faces! Everyone was wearing mask, sanitizing tables and social distancing! Food is always delicious! Never have anything to complain about. Can't wait to come back. Shoutout to the Blast crew for always being welcoming and having good vibes! See you guys soon !!

  • Jun 07, 2020 by Zachary S.

    Great place! Great atmosphere! Majority of the beers on tap were IPA's which a plus to me. Had a mishap where our table was cleared before we were done eating. They made it right, by replacing the sandwich and gave a free dessert.

  • Jun 07, 2020 by Annette R.

    Blast is the place to go, they're very clean and are following COVID regulations. For my first time it was no disappointment. Definitely recommend

  • Jun 07, 2020 by Arianna L.

    During these hard times, all the employees have been great!! everyone is following protocols, I see that every table is being cleaned as soon as the customer leaves. All employees are wearing masks. Tracy our server has been efficient in checking up on us and this has always been a Spot to eat and drink! Thank you BLAST FOR BEING OPEN!!!!!

    I give a 5 for food but a 1 for service so my average is 3. My husband and I first went to Blast when it was transitioning from Rooney's. We loved the food and brought family and friends when they would come to visit. But after that first few visits it seems like the service went down hill. It often takes a long time before the server comes to introduce themselves and take our drink orders. The food usually comes out fairly quick and hot but then it seems to take a long time before we see our server again. Several times now we've waited 30 minutes to get our check. We've received better follow up service from the busboys. Sad thing is we enjoy the food so we keep going back hoping the service will improve. But it doesn't.  Tonight, even after waiting 30 minutes we finally went to the hottest to pay I waited another 5 + minutes for them to find our server to get our check. When he finally came up he didn't even give me his full attention. He was giving the hostess instructions for drinks for another table!  My daughter is a server (not at Blast) and I know how important tips are so I always tip generously. But not tonight. Not sure if we will ever go back and I'm definitely going to stop recommending.

    Usually great...usually. Ordered a pick-up for Wingman Wednesday (they're not open due to the pandemic). Tomorrow is my birthday, so what better way to celebrate with than a bunch of wings and a growler. And it's a little my fault for not checking the order before leaving, but apparently they can't read: SAUCE ON THE SIDE doesn't mean put it on the wings, but that's what I got. At a restaurant that is COMPLETELY EMPTY right now, you would think they'd get the orders right. I won't be back during this crisis, and will definitely think long and hard before going back when it's over...

  • May 09, 2020 by Kris H.

    This place is less than McDonald's the food is soggy you order the tots fully loaded there was nothing on the tots it was only tots I could do that in a bag in my refrigerator come on if you're going to make a burger and it might be  wet and it's going to be delivered or picked up be smarter put something to sustain the moisture from the barbecue sauce from the bun I don't know maybe lettuce don't put it on top there's no purpose for it on top put it underneath and put the barbecue sauce on that and I'm an electrician and I can Make a better Burger you feel you're being successful but you're not eventuallyyour going to fail step up your game think think think then make. Innout never falls short.

    Great experience! I placed an order for curbside. Jake was very professional and kind. Thanks for being so sweet 825 BLAST! Great local spot, awesome food, & best wings in town! Staff seems to be on it! Thank you Ashley S. Decent food. Service is definitely in need of some real training. Some awareness! It was such a pleasure to have Michelle to help me with my togo order. Thank you Michelle for the great customer service! I believe she might be the manager, kudos to you!

  • Apr 04, 2020 by Nayvadius W.

    Food was pretty good. Servers were pretty hot. But GOOD LORD the wait for even the simpliest of requests took longer than it took my son to come out of the closet. What was a 2 hour visit could've been cut down to 30 minutes! And If I gotta wait 20 minutes for an ice cold tall boy then theres a problem! And if daddy don't get his beer then theres gon be issues. Otherwise was pretty aight. Server was pretty hot too. I mean really hot! Miss that gal.

  • Mar 11, 2020 by Ismael R.

    I want to say that the food is good but it has the worst service I've ever experienced. We went Friday evening (6 total) they never bought out one of the entrees, never refilled drinks and didn't bring condiments. When I asked to remove my entree from the tab the server ask why I didn't remind her of my order. Not my job to tell you how to do yours. The manager came over and wanted to know what had happen, so I told her and her response was that we're having problems with our servers. Go figure.

  • Mar 05, 2020 by Susie R.

    Enjoyed the decor and atmosphere.  The Tri Tip sandwich was delicious!  The fries, sweet potato fries and the house cut chips, were all super good.  We will definitely be back.

  • Feb 27, 2020 by Octavio P.

    Great service and great deals. Michelle was super patient our large group. Food was excellent. Thanks blast!

  • Feb 24, 2020 by Jaleen G.

    I have been here many times with various servers Ashley, Shaun and Vanessa always a great experience and outstanding service! But today I can at lunch with Angel and Ashlee and was completely disappointed!!! i walked in was sat at 1pm, had to go up to a staff member to get service at 110pm.. drinks and food order was taken by Angel. EVERYTHING WAS AN UPCHARGE! The five bucks burger was 1 for cheese 4 for a salad a dollar for fried etc. My daughter asked for sourdough and it was going to be a 3 dollar charge! I have never been somewhere sourdough is a charge and a small salad is 4 bucks! Ashlee came and said sorry it's my fault I saw you and forgot app is on the house for the inconvenience. At 125pm my app and drinks of water and dr pepper finally came out.  We had to call the servers over to get refills and finally our food came out. My daughter didn't like the bun so she asked how much sourdough would be but since they dropped the ball according to Ashlee it was no charge. They did everything almost possible to try to make it better except be attentive! you forget a table hello don't keep forgetting it and making them hunt you down! Once the bill arrived i was told that's your total less the 10 for the onion rings.... they didn't even comp them first! I don't know what happen to this place I use to love to come in but I'm not sure i'll be back two sale burgers came out to 20 bucks still with ten bucks in upcharges and shitty service. this place should be embarrassed of this staff! Please get the amazing servers back!

  • Feb 21, 2020 by Andrea H.

    service was terrible! The waitress was yelling across our table! Poor customer service! ALSO the veggie burger I ordered was burnt! My husband loves the beer selection here but don't go if you expect good customer service!

  • Feb 21, 2020 by Chris C.

    The weekly specials here are amazing. I feel the experience depends largely on who your server is. We've had Ashley in the past and been blown away by the superb service. This most recent visit left us wondering if it's worth the roll of the dice. We came on Thursday 2/20/20 for $5 tri-tip sandwiches (which are usually fantastic, piled high and served hot), but this most recent visit we spent about 90 minutes of our 120 minute visit waiting on the server. In all fairness, she had a lot of tables, but there were parties who were seated after us that got their appetizers and drinks well before us. We ordered two appetizers, and the longer we waited the more concerned I got that they were going to bring everything out at once (what's the purpose of ordering an appetizer if it comes out with your entrée?!?). After about 30 minutes, the staff brought out all of our food at once, with our loaded tots feeling about room temperature and the melted cheese already cooled and re-hardened. So we bypassed the $10 cold appetizer and went right into our sandwiches. My wife's and sister's sandwiches were both pretty good size, but my sandwich was mostly bun with not a lot of meat. No big deal, for $5 what do you expect right?!? They both opted for side salads instead of fries, would've been nice to know that's a $4.00 charge for each one. Not a big deal, but again might've been nice for the waitress to mention that to us. We ordered the kid's meal for our daughter which in the past, has come with a root beer float. So an hour after getting our food, boxing up our own leftovers, and attempting to flag down our waitress, she brings us the check and makes no mention of the root beer float. Major bummer, my kid waited all that time, for disappointment. Again, we've come here very often. Josh the manager is amazing, he's always super nice and makes us feel welcome. Ashley the waitress makes us feel like we're welcome and appreciated. I don't want to put any employee on "Blast" (sorry for the Dad joke), but I don't think we'll be back for awhile after this really poor experience. Have come here three times since the transition from Rooney's to Blast. The first time was sub-par, we chalked it up to the remodel/new staff. Second time was my wife's birthday, the food and service were both awful. This most recent time, we wanted to try their happy hour (3:00pm-6:00pm). The happy hour menu consists of 4-5 choices of foods, some of which sounded ok, but we were turned off by the $5.00 nachos that were described as simply "Corn tortilla chips, cheese, and pico de gallo." The happy hour drink specials are $3.00 house beer pints (they only had two options at this time, neither of which were very tasty, also seemed flat) and discounted well and house wines. The wife and I just decided to finish our beers and head on out. The two ladies working were all smiles and nice, but the menu offering were disappointing. According to my wife, we will not be back.

  • Feb 20, 2020 by Breanna C.

    I have been to Blast quite a few times and overall I do enjoy what they have done to the place. It's a cool place to hang with fun events for this area. There a few things I've noticed over my time there that I would love to see some change with- being that it's usually pretty busy and there isn't a good place to hang while you are waiting for a table and it can be quite awkward feeling like you are in the way if you choose not to wait outside. I also see that there are a lot of staff working yet at the same time it seems understaffed. Tonight my family and I went for tri tip sandwiches and we were underwhelmed with our service this time which is unfortunate. We had to wait quite a bit to get our food which wasn't the worst thing because we know there's a lot of foot traffic, however, we didn't get checked in on much so we weren't able to order additional beer/drinks, one of our plates was missing the salsa for the sandwich, root-beer float that is included with the kids meal never made it to the table, our appetizers came out about two minutes before our main entree did and one of our appetizers was incomplete when it arrived. I believe that the restaurant would have easily rectified these issues had our server come to ask how we were doing. Overall the service and food left a lot to be desired tonight, and I felt like it didn't justify the price of our bill.

  • Feb 17, 2020 by Jennifer A.

    Loving this place! Super kid friendly. Patio has heaters, games, water fountain, music and awesome lighting. Great food and the beer and wine selection with a pour-your-own-glass system makes it a win win for a great evening out. If you're in Orcutt, this is a must! The bottomless house chips and Brussels sprouts were delicious. Michelle was our server and she was awesome!

  • Feb 17, 2020 by Rayann O.

    Very nice beer selection. We ordered our daughters food first. It was the calamari and chips. The chips were cold and the calamari breading soggy. I ordered the cauliflower substitute for the pizza. Very nice option to have.

  • Feb 14, 2020 by Chris S.

    When this place switched from Rooney's I was crushed, but let me tell you it's becoming one of my coworkers and myself favorite lunch time places. We go at least once a week if not more. Ashley Hyl has been our waitress the last few times and let me tell she is so nice and attentive to us. Between her positive attitude and knowledge of the menu makes for a nice break in a stressful work week Ashley and blast we will be repeat customers for the foreseeable future.

  • Feb 13, 2020 by Suzanne R.

    It's our and our husbands first time here and we will definitely be back!! Best service we've had in a long time. We came for the tri tip sandwich special and it did not disappoint. Fast service and amazing food and such a fun atmosphere.

  • Feb 10, 2020 by Bryce A.

    Perfect addition to Old Town Orcutt!   Very complimentary to the surroundings and neighboring businesses.   Family friendly ambience.   Great daily specials... $5 pizzas, $2 drafts, etc. Eclectic selection of local beers and wines!

  • Feb 02, 2020 by Juan F.

    Superbowl sunday was great. Very family friendly like the  fact that there is many tvs, our server was jake aesome customer service ! Keep up the  good work

  • Feb 01, 2020 by Dani P.

    This review pertains to the following  employees: Ashley(Manager) Billy, Brian, and Miyah.  We are locals and come here at least once a week (minimum). These employees recognize the importance of locals, and provide superior customer service. Without them, this establishment would not sustain the local customer base. Please give praise and accolades where due. Keep it up!!

  • Jan 30, 2020 by Jimmy W.

    Maybe I'm just old, but I prefer my beer to be poured by a human other than myself.  That being said, they do have a full bar tended by humans.  Very good food so far and if you target the specials it can be a steal.  They have some good music here pretty frequently too.

  • Jan 30, 2020 by Patrick S.

    Definately a great place for a beer and tri tip sandwich. I also have to point out Miyah, one of the best bartenders ever, pours a mean drink!!! I decided to have to have something different one night so I had her pour me a Manhattan. I ended up having about four of them. They were amazing!! I really recommend coming here!!!

  • Jan 28, 2020 by Marc C.

    This place is the bomb. They have everything, including friendly employees. I would highly recommend this place to anybody and everyone

  • Jan 24, 2020 by Christie C.

    I did like this salad. It was nice and refreshing. Personally, I think it should have either had the grilled chicken or the salami. Having them both on there was a bit odd to me. It's big enough to share with someone and maybe even add an appetizer. My favorite thing about this spot was the atmosphere! Will be back!

  • Jan 22, 2020 by Ashlyn R.

    Awesome food and service! Good to see these hard working people. Austin's service at the bar is amazing as usual  and the beer selection is par-non!

  • Jan 19, 2020 by Elizabeth Woody V.

    We watched the playoff game here today and received fantastic service. Ashley Cab is amazing!! On your next visit look for her! She kept our drinks full (even our water) and checked on us often. The chicken dip was delicious. Thank you for your constant attendance and for taking good care of us Ashley!

  • Jan 18, 2020 by Erica P.

    Great food (omg! The burgers! And the bread pudding!) great beer selection between on tap and a fun beer wall! But the best part is the service! We had a great server, Angel. He was attentive, fun, and so helpful! Even the host, Josh, made us feel like regulars. Can't wait to come back!

  • Jan 18, 2020 by Mark M.

    This place has great brews in tap, with a card where you can fill your glass up yourself!! Like Yogurtland for adults!! Excellent food (burgers are amazing and best calamari I've had anywhere) and the service is even better. Angel was awesome, funny and we never wanted for anything, and the manager Josh is very welcoming. Definitely going to come back!

  • Jan 18, 2020 by Cameron P.

    Had a great time at blast! Steak, tots, beer, oh my! Definitely will be back! Angel is a doll with great eyelashes!!!!!

  • Jan 18, 2020 by Alec M.

    I try to make it to blast for 1 special per week because you can't beat they're Monday through Thursday daily specials. I came for pizza night on Tuesday. My party and I walked in and the hostess told us they're would be a little wait  so we ask  to just sit at the pizza bar that was completely open. The hostess sat us  with our menu and said our server will check in shortly so we waited. 15 minutes go by and no one has come to check in with us to get drink orders. I  finally get up and ask the hostess where our server is. She immediately went looking for our server and came back to our table to let us know he'd be right over. I believe his name was angel came  and checked our ids for beer cards and we gave him our pizza  orders. He brought back our cards and waters  and that was the last  time we saw him all night. The pizza cooks served us our pizzas which 2 out the 3 pizzas we had had wrong toppings but the wait for pizza is long so we just didn't say anything . I wanted to order another pizza but he was no where to be found so I gave my pizza order to another server I saw. 20 minutes after our pizza was finished we were ready for  our check but again he was no where to be found. A different server came up and told  us our server had to leave and she could cash us out when we're ready. I'll be  back for the deals  but I'm glad they offer self serve beer cards so my glass never stays empty.

  • Jan 17, 2020 by Jake T.

    Love this place. The food is great, the service is amazing. I highly recommend coming here to eat or just to watch the game that's on. I'll come back any chance I get.

  • Jan 13, 2020 by Gleb D.

    Fantastic vibe. Came here during the 49ers v. Vikings game. Surrounded with a bunch of great people. Service fast, quick, and tasty (carnitas nachos 5/5). Beer wall full of great beers.

  • Jan 12, 2020 by D M.

    I've had there tri-tip sandwich and it's really good. They also have a French dip style tri-tip sandwich which is also good. There's an eat in pizza special on Tuesday that a great deal... the pizza is really good to. I created a BBQ chicken and meat lovers style pizza. Both were really good.

  • Jan 09, 2020 by Giovanni L.

    I'm new up here in the central coast , & I have to say my wife has some family in Orcutt and none of them have ever been here . I came here because I go across the street to a wonderful brewery called " Naughty Oak" , wow they are my fav brewery here in Orcutt but I must say blast brewery has the best food & they have some amazing house brews . I recommend you try the "East meets Blast" IPA . If you are ever in Orcutt come here the vibes the place is beautiful overall

  • Jan 04, 2020 by Paula D.

    My family reserved the back room for a birthday party. There was a lot of people for the room. So some members of the party went the outside to the patio. A man who works for Blast 825 proceeded to come outside and ask us if we were part of the party. We said yes. He told us if we weren't going to go back inside then he was going to seat people at the tables inside. Keep in mind there are many people still in the room and the birthday girl hasn't even opened gifts yet. He was rude and could have told us nicer instead of coming off in that tone. The whole party was buying many drinks and pitchers from the business. Next time we'll take our business somewhere else.

  • Jan 04, 2020 by Michael H.

    Good place. Very big and their food has always been yummy. Tuesday is 5$ pizzas. The taps are cool too.

  • Dec 31, 2019 by Monica R.

    Bca was bomb!! Angel was very helpful and good at his job service was awesome!! Recommend pulled pork and the BCA!!

  • Dec 30, 2019 by Tony D.

    Servers and staff need some education.  I like the place.  The brew wall is great.  The food from what I've had is what you would expect from a bar.  I came in on 12/30 around 5ish. Wearing blue hoodie sat at the pizza bar in case you want to check the tape.  Server said she would be back to take my order. 15 minutes goes by. Nothing.  I'm not blaming the pizza guy but as a staff member wouldn't it be good to flag someone down if there is no service happening?  Server sits a woman down a couple of stools away.  Comes back promptly and takes her order and ignores me.  I was coming in to try The Blast burger and have a couple of pints.  Not crazy money but if I enjoyed the experience it would be consistent money.  Your motto is "Life's too short, have a blast!"  You're half right.  Life is too short to be sitting around waiting to be served at Blast.

  • Dec 29, 2019 by Tina V.

    It was a party of two adults and two children. Took over an hour and a half to get our food but I got my pizza at 50 minutes.  Obviously everyone ate it as a appetizers. My kids were starving. My appetizers never came until my food order was there. I actually had to ask for my food after everyone around me got served, everyone that was seated around us at the same time had ate and left. They placed us in-front of the back doors which was a wind tunnel. Me and my kids were freezing cold, and my napkins and pizza sheet kept flying off every time someone opened the door.

  • Dec 27, 2019 by Brenissa F.

    Ann is the best server hands down!! Great service would recommend her as my service any day!

  • Dec 23, 2019 by Paul B.

    We came to watch the game and our waitress was on point she checked on are  food, dessert and drinks .. during the  game she even asked if the volume was up high enough for us to enjoy.. Venessa was our waitress... Hats off to her For a party at 12 we had to wait a long time we were advised a certain time and it was more than double. Our server  ANGEL has made it a better experience, with his humor and promptness... Just came with the family for the holidays. Bb food best spot for drinks !!!! The waitress was good the name was Vanessa Came in to watch football they have TVs everywhere  !!!! The beer is the bomb !!!! The food is hella good. The service was perfect thanks Angel for the perfect service!!!! Went on Wednesday the wings are buy 6 get 6 for free. Hella cool deal. The wings are the bomb !!! Got a chicken sandwich it was hella good !!

  • Dec 14, 2019 by Liza L.

    What can I say, this place was an amazing! Our server Ashley H. was so friendly, accommodating and very attentive. I ordered the short ribs and they were cooked to perfection and their Manhattans and old fashion cocktails were Yum! I definitely will be back soon!

  • Dec 11, 2019 by Joe H.

    Dinner was great. Kids loved the pizza, but the Teixeira steak sandwich was not as good as expected. Angel, our server was great!

  • Dec 10, 2019 by Robert T.

    I have now been to Blast 825 three times. I went for just beers, another time for a lunch date, and third for a private room party. All times were good! I got the Orcutt Cowboy  Pizza  and it's mouth watering good. My expertise with the private room was great. I paid $250 for the room. They only offer a partial menu to my guest. But no one complained about the items on there. I will be returning!!

  • Dec 10, 2019 by Nancy C.

    Love the food and their jalapeño margaritas.  Only thing I would comment on is their microphone for trivia night ! It sounds really bad ! Overall love the place

  • Dec 06, 2019 by Mari M.

    The only reason why I am giving this place 5 stars is because of our waiter, Angel.  Once we finally sat down- after over an hour wait- our service was amazing. Angel was super attentive and friendly. Our food and drinks came out on a very timely manner- so the wait didn't seem to matter as much.

  • Dec 06, 2019 by Brandon V.

    Went the day before thanksgiving. Waited in line for about 15 minutes when there was not a lot of people in line and ended up leaving early because friends couldn't get in because they were stuck in line waiting to get in.

  • Dec 01, 2019 by Matt G.

    Service Sucks! No cocktail waitresses, just waitresses concentrating on food only! I have been here several times even when it was Rooney's and the service is the same (Bad)! I have also sat at the bar and it is also very bad service.

  • Dec 01, 2019 by John T.

    Piss poor service.  The bathrooms were a mess.  The bartender forgot about my drink , comped the drink , then forgot about my second drink. Then charged me for both.  The food is overpriced and average at best.

  • Nov 30, 2019 by Kara J.

    Super excited this place came to Orcutt! Def needed a more lively/ kid friendly resturaunt  around! Ashley C. was our server and did such a good job even though the entire restaurant was packed. We will be coming back! Highly recommend!

  • Nov 29, 2019 by Mike D.

    The food is good but the service needs some serious work. We have stopped by twice coincidently in the same week and had terrible service both times. The first time we stopped by, we ordered pizzas and one of the pizzas came out incorrect. The server augured that it was correct until he checked our tag and finally agreed that he put it in wrong. Later in the night once we finished the pizzas we received, we asked where the missing pizza was and our server came back telling us they had given our pizza to someone else and that they were now complaining too. One of us never got to eat. The server offhandedly apologized but wasn't sincere. The second night we stopped by with a group of friends that wanted to go. We ordered chips that never arrived and requested salad dressing for a salad that was delivered to three different servers before someone brought one out. Long story short, life is short, don't eat at blast.

  • Nov 28, 2019 by Jenna G.

    Was there for their "Friendsgiving" event tonight. My friend and I ordered a margarita, 805 and a modelo and gave one of the bartenders $40 for 3 drinks. We were waiting for our change and the bartender never brought it back to us. She adamantly avoided coming back over to that area of the bar, didn't make eye contact with us for about 10 minutes. I finally flagged down another bartender and asked for our change back. When the 2nd bartender went to ask the 1st one she rudely yelled back that she had already given us our change back. After my friend and I stood there with our mouths open in disbelief she came over hand handed us our change. Needless to say she did not get a tip. Not going back there anytime soon.

  • Nov 27, 2019 by Valorie O.

    Loved the food and service here!  The fresh chips and sauce are the best! Also, the beer and wine bar was fun. Good to do a taste test!  I would highly recommend this place! Valorie

    First time I saw the website of a brewery without mention of the beers brewed there!

  • Nov 13, 2019 by Chris J.

    Salmon salad was really good. I didn't really check out the rest of the menu but I plan on going back in the next few weeks. Was healthy and enjoyable option. Veggies were fresh and the salmon was tasty! The strawberries didn't taste like much, but it is out of season. Either way I will absolutely be back! I liked it much more than Rooney's final iteration of itself. Rooney's went downhill towards the end. Emily was a great server! Salmon salad was really good. I didn't really check out the rest of the menu but I plan on going back in the next few weeks. Was healthy and enjoyable option. The only reason I am not giving them a 5 star which I usually give places that I review positively is because they took quite a long time to get my buddies salad after he had ordered after joining us. He ordered maybe 5-10 minutes after we did but he got his food at least 20 minutes after we were done eating. It showed up right as we were getting up to leave so he just ate the salmon and tossed the rest unfortunately. The place is big and maybe the server was over worked? Either way I will absolutely be back! I liked it much more than Rooney's final iteration of itself. Rooney's went downhill towards the end.

  • Nov 10, 2019 by Pam P.

    So hoped this new restaurant would be a regular stop for our family. Sorry to say it's not going to be unless they work out some simple things. Food took way to long, some came cold, bathrooms need attention, only saving grace was the server. Don't know if we will return, bill came to $139, to much for bad food

  • Nov 10, 2019 by Anastacia F.

    We usually love Blast, went this last Sunday for Brunch after church. Very disappointed. Minimum selection of food, not a full breakfast menu, no potato's, eggs ( you had to have eggs made for you) Had to ask for syrup and butter for the pancakes. No salads, Fish -NO, our waitress was awesome. But we won't back.

  • Nov 02, 2019 by Angel A.

    Super big portions, awesome beers and even better service! Live music, roomy seating and full bar y'all! Had the sweetest server named Ashley! Newest Pit stop every time I come though!

  • Oct 27, 2019 by Matthew T.

    At first my experience, it was ok. It was my first time visiting this place. I only had three brews, two of which were their brew. A bucket of beer which only had two left, also we already paid for, had fallen and spilt water and broke one glass. My cousin asked if we can buy another bucket and was told yes. We waited awhile and it didn't come so we asked again and was told by the tender she was told no by someone else. My family left except I and I ordered myself one more beer to drink before my uber arrived and a different bartender said no the manager said he couldn't. The person who told him was the server that told us. So I don't know if she was the manager or not. I asked him why and he said he didn't know and he just couldn't serve me. I explained to him yes i was with the same group, I wasn't around as long, also only had three drinks and told him which ones I had. I don't think I will return the fact I was kicked out after three drinks and was told I couldn't drink anything else but water because a small accident that happened. We weren't being sloppy or obnoxious, a simple accident that could have happened with anyone. The "manager" was some chick in a packers jersey. Didn't tell us her position or her name just that she was told she couldn't serve us anymore.

    Bomb food AMAZING service! Even the General Manager Ashley came to our table and checked on us. Blast 825 is the place to be!!!!!!!

  • Oct 25, 2019 by Jeremy M.

    Blast Brewery has taken this location to a whole new level. Thanks to their employee Angel, I definitely will be back to try some tap beer and hang out at this cool spot. It was a great idea to focus service and patrons around the wood fired oven, badass. Thanks again guys. Keep up the cool vibes Angel.

    Food and beer is great...service was came in 10 minutes followed by my companions meal 20 minutes later.

  • Oct 20, 2019 by Patrick S.

    Came here on a Sunday afternoon not to busy, food and service was great! Got seated right away and we will definitely be coming back!

  • Oct 18, 2019 by Devorah S.

    Jam packed and amazing food.   Nice music tonight.   The house wines are excellent.   Food is local.   The beef comes from the Teixeira Ranch.   They have heaters outside so you can sit anywhere.   Ordered the local burger which is fantastic.   Everything is fresh and service is good.

    Really great place in Old town Orcutt.  Nice atmosphere. Great patio.  Food is tasty and great spices and flavors. Lovers hanging with my faves on a Friday night

  • Oct 18, 2019 by Crystal O.

    Fun place with yummy food. Pizzas are great. The pour your own beer wall is really a cool feature. The outdoor patio is nice plenty of heaters.  They have live music on Fridays that is a little loud in the bar area but not obnoxious. Pretty large menu with a good variety from steaks to salads to tacos and sandwiches and salads. Pizzas do come out faster than other food. Overall a good experience the three times we have been here and will come back again.

  • Oct 12, 2019 by Hannah P.

    The service here was awesome. We had different people ask us how our food was throughout our dinner. Food was great! I had the fish and chips and it was so flakey and delicious. The only bad side is it's a little on the pricier side. Other than that no complaints!

  • Oct 09, 2019 by Cliff C.

    This is the first time we have been to Blast 825 Brew since they made the switch from Rooney's Irish Pub.  We went on a Tuesday night and the place was pretty busy for a weekday.  As others have noted there are a lot of TV's so you can watch your favorite game or music videos. Overall, I would give Blast a rating of 3.5 with the food getting a 4+.  But the service, as others have mentioned was not that great.  It took over 10 minutes to have beers delivered to our table.  To be fair on this night the computer system had crashed and that slowed the service down, but that was only part of the problem.  Our server was nice but not on point and did not remember our table number, so our order went to the wrong table initially. The food was pretty good, we ordered onion rings and the Pesto Chicken Pizza.  The onion rings were the best I have had in years.  The pizza was very tasty and well cooked.  Note, the crusts are very thin and the pies pretty small so be prepared.  My only complaint with the pie was there was too much oil on it, they should have drizzled a bit less oil. I will go back and try other menu items besides pizza.

  • Oct 08, 2019 by Kat Z.

    The service is good, food is yummy...but why does it need to be so cold?!! I'm looking around and talking to folks and everyone is cold. Even a women next to me said the previous time she was here she had to move because it was so cold. Great spot but do all the doors need to be open?!! Already got a note back from the owner and it is greatly appreciated. Highly recommend this spot!!

  • Oct 06, 2019 by Corina R.

    We came in on a Sunday afternoon. They had must have 20 screens showing football.  They also have the option where you get a wristband and make your own pours - beer and wine by the ounce Course it's Sunday football so it is extremely loud in here.  Michelle is our waitress and she was extremely efficient and attentive We ordered two beers, the blue cheese wedge salad, the pretzel, and a set of sliders.  Since I checked into yelp we got a free basket of homemade potato chips that were very good. The food came out in a timely matter and everything was fresh and piping hot. My husband said that was the best pretzel he's ever eaten.   We will definitely come back when we are in town.

  • Oct 05, 2019 by Samantha A.

    My husband and I came here early for dinner on a Saturday night.  The service was wonderful and our food was amazing.  We had the artichoke appetizer, which was SO good (but a little spicy).  I had the grilled salmon salad, and the flavors were incredible.  Everything was so fresh, and the salmon was cooked perfectly.  My husband had the cowboy pizza (a barbecued chicken pizza) and loved it.  Nice, crispy crust, and the flavors were absolutely delicious.  He couldn't stop thinking about that dang pizza, so we had to go back mid-week to have it again!  So happy to have another great restaurant with such a fun atmosphere here in Orcutt!  We will definitely be going back again soon!

  • Oct 04, 2019 by Michael R.

    Honestly this place is 10x better than the previous place. Pizza is awesome, service is great, and of course the beer is tasty. Everyone from our hostess to busser was great. Cesar the busser grabbed our empty glasses and took care of our table fast as f**k. This is a new weekly spot for me. If you like great service and a chill cool atmosphere, stop by.

  • Oct 01, 2019 by Wendy G.

    $5 pizzas, sour beers on tap and yummy nachos with an excellent, informative server, Angel!

  • Sep 30, 2019 by John M.

    Wow... came in by myself for lunch...  was sat at a table and waited, and waited, and waited, and waited...  not a server in sight... other tables were also looking around for any staff...   Guess  they were on a cigarette break... ??

  • Sep 28, 2019 by Donald L.

    Returned to retry this place. The manager david worked really hard to make sure we had a good experience since our first encounter was not so good. Like i said in my post the tri tip here is the best in the central coast. I know i work in restaurants from paso robles to Ventura ca and i get to try the eats everywhere in between. The onion rings were the fabulous. The service was top notch this time. FOR THE OWNER OR OWNERS OF 825****************************************************Tried the new place in town.the tri tip was to die for. The service was really bad. Our waitess ashley was the worst ever. We had to ask 3 times for napkins got no silverware for our table. We asked for the check and waited for the waitess to pick it up to cash out but we were ignored. We grabbed our food to go and wont be returning at all. You should really be watching how the waitor or waitesses treat your guests. This made for a bad experience for my wife and i on date night. We paid our 40 $ bill but was not worth it at all....!!!!!! We would have asked for the manger but we just wanted to go home after being treated horribly.....

  • Sep 25, 2019 by J T.

    I only post reviews when it's either extraordinary or horrible. In this case I ordered the calamari shortly after the change from Roonies... And Wow! Best offer ever had. Perfectly prepared with a grilled lemon. Atmosphere is great. Definitely 5 stars.

  • Sep 23, 2019 by Gary S.

    Nice bar, lots of televisions for sports.  Self service beer dispenser is very cool and necessary because service is terrible.   Waitress asked how I wanted my burger, replied medium rare. 40 minutes later got my well done burger.  Don't ask me how I want if it's not going to be prepared that way. Food wasn't bad, beer was great service awful

  • Sep 21, 2019 by Cyndi S.

    Oh my gosh. What a find.  Found this place by accident and what a pleasant surprise. We are  Craft brews fans periods they have 20 plus craft beers on tap and even more.  We have pizza and wings and appetizers. Everything was wonderful. Sweet Chili wings & Hawaiian Blast pizza. Clam chowder and serve yourself wine.

  • Sep 20, 2019 by BRITTANY

    Went out with my friend around 830ish for dinner and drinks on a Monday night. Not a lot of people it was kind of nice. Great service and good drinks just a little pricey.‍ Then I came back the next week on a Friday on me and my husbands anniversary. We are definitely not a fan of the loud music. I guess they have a band on Friday's I dont know. My ears are still ringing from the noise lol. Don't get me wrong they where a great band. They should of had the band towards the back not right by the door. Couldnt really talk with my husband much either. My husband got the beer that was on the wall. He got 3 full glasses for $13. I was a little bummed because just for 2 cocktails that where no more the 8oz each we spent $24. And I have definitely had better drinks for a cheaper price. But I will still definitely be returning :-) But next time sticking with the beer wall. Definitely worth the experience. Food was really fresh... I mean they pickle there own jalepenos. Get there homemade potato chips with there AMAZING garlicky ranch. Calamari was real good, there tartare sauce was good. My husband got the cowboy blast burger. He asked for it to be medium rare but it was well done. We had a sweet waiter. You could tell he was fairly new but he did the best he could. He was such a sweetheart.

  • Sep 20, 2019 by Frank D.

    Great remodel service is amazing. Came here for a couple drinks and appetizers and the service was great the food is amazing def have to try it out

  • Sep 20, 2019 by Jennifer D.

    So disappointed...  We stopped in for Sunday Brunch to watch all the football games since they advertised they were offering the Sunday Ticket.  I thought they had reasonable pricing for their buffet at $18 and there's option for bottomless Mimosa/Bloody Mary's for $27.  When we got there our group was told the drinks were now limited to 3, no longer bottomless due to someone having too many the week before. I'm sorry but this is on the servers/bartenders to monitor. If you are serving someone who's had too much you need to be responsible and cut them off. But ok whatever.  I do have to say I was happy with the buffet. They did swap out breakfast items to lunch  items instead of just having the same option the entire time we were there.  But the good part comes when I got my bill.  I didn't get the drink option, only the buffet yet I was charged $27.  When I questioned the waitress about it she said, oh I'm sorry I forgot, we now only offer the $27 whether you get the drinks or not.  Ummm... I'm sorry, you had discussed with us when we arrived the menu and now in 3 hours it changed?  This is POOR MANAGEMENT and it seems to me they are looking to bait and switch people.  I wonder how many people they've charged for the full option when they didn't get drinks? How many wont complain about it and just pay?  This is a bad look for a restaurant that changed ownership and names a couple months ago.  First they don't have the bottomless drinks even though its on the menu and now they don't offer a buffet standalone for nondrinkers even though its on their menu.  The management team needs to get their act together as we most likely won't be back. Came in on a Saturday night to check out the beer wall. Great atmosphere and friendly staff.  This is a great place to come and relax with friends. Definitely will be back!

  • Sep 16, 2019 by Jerry D.

    Good spot for harder to find craft beers. You pour your own beer so you can try a variety without breaking the bank. Their happy hour during the week is great as well.

  • Sep 14, 2019 by Justin M.

    Don't bother to eat here.  This place is only good for the beer selections.  This is the second time we've been here since it changed from Rooney's and the food is terrible and the prices are higher with smaller portions. Out of 5 pizzas that were ordered on the 2 occasions all came out cold.  Not warm, but cold.  I ordered a patty melt this time around and it was burnt to the point of charcoal and the patty wasn't good.  The wife got a Cobb salad and wasn't happy with that either.  I wish Rooney's would come back.  Had to add an edit after I saw the wife's salad was $16. Are you F'ing kidding me.  What a RIP off. She didn't even eat it all because it wasn't any good.

  • Sep 09, 2019 by Tabby T.

    We waited 15 minutes for a server on a monday night, and told hostess repeatedly.  If you like waiting, this is place for you.

  • Sep 08, 2019 by Joshua G.

    Hit this place up on the way back from a soccer game in Santa Maria. It was the perfect spot for lunch on a mid-afternoon Sunday. Lots of TVs for casual football watching. They have the standard kids options but they come with a drink and dessert, so that kept the little one happy. Oldest daughter had a Texas toast grilled cheese, which was the only thing that was off. They cut the sandwiches into triangles and set them on edge. Problem was the cheese was still all melted and oozed out of the sandwich.  Tri tip salad was good, dressing on the side.  Wife had the Reuben which she said was good, bith meat and bread, which was marble rye, a key to a real Reuben. She also had a beer, which can be done self service by the ounce. Cool concept! I should point out service was good, especially with all the kids. All in all a good place and would definitely definitely come again.

  • Sep 08, 2019 by Margaret L.

    First visit here. Very good food and service. My husband and others in our group felt the management should provide either more professional uniforms or dress code affording the servers a more professional appearance. Otherwise, it was a wonderful experience.

  • Sep 04, 2019 by Jennifer G.

    We've been here several times since the grand opening and the food & service have been on point every time. Ashley ( with the purple hair) especially stands out as always providing prompt , efficient, friendly service.  We will be back !

  • Sep 02, 2019 by Mondo N.

    Angel was a great waiter, atmosphere in the patio was perfect and food delicious. We had the tri-tip salad and local burger.

  • Sep 02, 2019 by Kevin C.

    So happy this place opened!! Great drinks awesome pizza and even better service! We have been here 3 times since they opened and every time we have enjoyed our service so much. Our server Angel today was absolutely fantastic. Currently sitting outside enjoying a great live band.

    Finally tried Blast 825 Brewery since it changed from Rooneys Irish Pub. Arrived about 4:45 P.M. when it was 83 outside. Once inside it was quite warm but not hot. Russ Douglas was playing classic rock which was very good but a bit loud as it made it difficult to talk to others. A little later it was toned down. Overall good service but did take a little longer than I like to get that first adult beverage in front of me. The wood fired pizza and burgers were excellent. I had the Short Ribs which are very close to Rooneys Shepard Pie, quite good but not as good as Rooneys. Will we go back. Definitely.  Recommendations: Lower the music volume a bit, turn the AC up a bit and possibly close the doors when it's about 80 outside and go back to serving the Rooneys style Shepard Pie. A better sauce. P.S. The self serve micro beer/wine by the ounce was a welcome addition. When I found out Rooney's was changing to Blast Brewery I was worried. It's my favorite place on the Central coast. However the food menu is much the same but with more options. Same for the beer. I normally get the Shepherds Pie which I rate a 10 but had the fish and chips last night. Very good also and lots of food. So we'll be going back as often as we can. Only suggestion is servers need to know the alcohol content of all beers and also need to know where they get their Cod when asked. Would be good to have a beer menu.

  • Aug 30, 2019 by Natalie W.

    This is was our first time here and immediately everyone was so welcoming and accommodating! Our server Angel was was super attentive and fun to talk to. We ordered the brussel sprouts appetizer, the cheese steak sandwich and the ruben sandwich. Everything was so good but the brussels were my favorite. Highly recommend!

  • Aug 28, 2019 by Jacob W.

    This place was awesome. The food was bomb and Angel, our server, was great and recommended some really good drinks.

  • Aug 28, 2019 by Theresa M.

    Food and drinks awesome! Great happy hour!! Angel (our waiter) came to our rescue because we were ignored for a good 15 min  by 2 waitresses and a hostess. No menu. No drink. Made eye contact with Waitress and walked away! Angel was awesome. Made up for the whole experience

  • Aug 26, 2019 by Bella D.

    You got all the variety here you need! Angel's service is kick ass, checks up on you regularly and assures you have everything you need. Great food, good people.

  • Aug 26, 2019 by Ju L.

    Trendy and upbeat atmosphere. Friendly and attentive service all around. Thumbs up on the remodel. Our waiter, Angel suggested we try their Sunday brunch buffet next time.

  • Aug 26, 2019 by Maria V.

    Came in for the Monday special. $5 dollar burger was amazing! Angel was great and very attentive! Definitely will be back!

    Best brunch experience ever!!! Our waitress Jasmine was the best! She never let my drink get empty and she was so much fun!! This is my new favorite brunch!!!!

  • Aug 23, 2019 by Suzy J.

    I had an amazing time at the grand opening!  The owner, his family were gracious and hospitable.  Molly Ringwald Project was awesome!  I brought a friend another day. We enjoyed the patio, the beer, and the best artichoke with delicious seasoning between almost every layer of leaves.  Another time, I brought a different friend and we were in love with the service and artichoke appetizer. Tonight the service, the manager, the pizza guys were friendly and gracious.  The artichoke was undercooked. The server took it back.  Returned with a fully cooked artichoke, but no delicious seasoning stuffed between the leaves.  The manager, Ashley, gave me coupons.  I will give the artichoke one more try next time.  I look forward to enjoying that amazing artichoke appetizer, again. 2nd visit-  Thanks Dave!  Another great relaxing experience!!!!  Food, service, Ashley, Angel, and Jasmine. 3rd visit Here to pick up a to go order.  Amicable greeting!   To go order was a favorite...artichoke!  Arrived undercooked and no wonderful seasonings buried treasure tween the layers.  They took it back saying "No guarantee it won't come back the same".   It came back cooked, no wonderful seasoning tween the leaves. (Disappointing).   Friendly pizza oven guys.

  • Aug 23, 2019 by Taylor P.

    As always...good food and drinks. Angel, our server, was squared away and super friendly.

  • Aug 21, 2019 by Chuck M.

    Came here for a birthday dinner and it was really good. Food was excellent and the atmosphere was the best for a large family. Our server was top notch. We will be coming back.

  • Aug 20, 2019 by Hannah B.

    Michelle and Linda were great all night! We came for $5 pizza night and although the pizza oven was slammed they continually checked up on us and brought us drinks until everything showed up. A few kinks to work out but we're rooting for Blast to succeed.

  • Aug 19, 2019 by Dan K.

    The new Blast 825 is awesome! I've been here three times in the past week. The food is great, huge selection of local beers on tap, and my bartender "Miyah" made the best Old Fashioned!!! Definitely telling my friends to come check out the new spot in Orcutt.

  • Aug 17, 2019 by Sean L.

    Food: 5 stars Service: 2 stars Altogether 3.5 but rounding down given the service was such a challenge. First the positive...Everything our group ordered tasted great - Sweet chili garlic wings, brussel sprouts, calamari app, pulled pork sandwich, fries (was supposed to be a side salad, but received fries). The restaurant was also kept clean and every staff member we interacted with was friendly and helpful. However, the service itself was a mess, as it seemed like they were working through one of their first busy nights as a team. I can understand the struggle since it's a newer location and the staff is all new, however I would put it on management to better prepare the staff for future busy nights. Overall a friendly service staff, but can definitely improve planning and execution in the future! Some details on the service: - We received our drinks promptly, but was never offered any refills. We had to flag down our waiter and a bus boy on three different occasions for each refill, while also reminding them each time what our drinks were. - We ordered the bottomless chips but was never offered a refill by the staff when the tray was empty. Had to ask twice for refills, otherwise it would have been a waste of ordering a bottomless app. - As mentioned above, ordered a side salad instead of fries, but received the latter. We never bothered the staff to correct it given the other service issues and it was an excuse to eat fries instead of salad. I'll also note our waiter correctly wrote down the salad substitution, but the kitchen was probably overwhelmed with orders and missed that detail. - 2 or 3 times I saw a staff member looking to find the table for the food they were trying to serve, but they seemed really mixed up. They went up to several tables, including ours, asking "did you order a pizza / calamari / etc". I saw them doing this again with our food at another table, but thankfully we were able to flag them down with the "that's our food :)" look in our eyes. - Finally, we had to wait for 10-15 minutes to find our waiter to ask for the bill, otherwise who knows how long we would sit there. This may not seem like a huge deal, but it will help save time for both customers and the restaurant if this process could speed up, as I'm sure that 825 wants to turn over tables ASAP on a Friday night. Again, everyone was friendly and helpful. But it was only once you were able to flag one of the staff members down for a refill / request for the bill / request to pick up the bill with the credit card. I hope the service improves in the future, but for now, we may resort to other options until then.

  • Aug 16, 2019 by Lori L.

    The food and drinks were awesome!  We came on a Friday night and it was packed but we received our food and drinks quickly!  Our server, Angel, was on it!  Angel was really helpful and gave us great service !  We will definitely be back!

  • Aug 12, 2019 by Frank O.

    Came to check out this location over the weekend as I've been to the one is San Luis Obispo and loved it. Very different setup inside, much more of a restaurant compared to the SLO location. You walk in, there's beers on tap to your right, full bar straight ahead, and seating to your left. Pretty good vibes on the inside, not too loud or crazy but it's a nice setting whether your coming in to have dinner or maybe just a beer and some appetizers. There seems to be less of s selection of beer at this location, however it does have more food items/entrees and a full bad, where the SLO location does not. We tried basically ever beer option they had and really enjoyed most of them. The food wasn't bad. Wings were okay, pizza and pulled pork Sandwich were also pretty good, but the nachos were a little different from what we expected. Would say this is a pretty decent spot to come have a beer after work with some appetizers , or potentially dinner before going out.

  • Aug 11, 2019 by Jane T.

    Great outdoor area, the calamari and chicken wings were bomb. Michelle, our server, was off the hook. We didnt do the beer wall but ordered pitchers. Check this place out!

  • Aug 10, 2019 by Martha M.

    Feels like a sports bar, however the ambiance a little more relaxed The brewery offers a walk variety beers which is self serve with a beer card The beer is charged by the ounce so drink responsibly. The portions of of food are sufficient and tasteful

  • Aug 10, 2019 by ..

    Excellent food, tough service. So many people in this place that it's so hard to have a conversation I'm mean the restroom are across the way and why do they have to be so nice it's not like we're at the ritz Carleton hotel. And the bar.... man that place is so full the bartenders should be more rude to the customers. They have to be so extra with the live music it's so annoying how over the top this place is and how good the food is, I don't deserve the food and no one else does either, it is delicious. Still can't believe this place is so extra. The water must be have delivered from the high Sierras because after 8 of those high sierras I should have been kicked out of here... good luck great place to eat

  • Aug 09, 2019 by Cassie F.

    The food wasn't too bad. But I ordered the salmon salad and I just got a salmon entree. I didn't realize their mistake until half way of eating it and they offered to get me the right dish...but it was too late. They decided to delete it from the bill. Waiters were also walking around not knowing where drinks or food went. It was just a wreck in there.

  • Aug 08, 2019 by Michael B.

    Since they've open s it's been great! Especially the. bartender Miyah all I can simply amazing.

  • Aug 08, 2019 by Ricardo P.

    Mya is one of the best bartenders around. Positive attitude. Great smile, made my time here, one of the best beer drinking experiences.

  • Aug 05, 2019 by Claire P.

    The new self serve beer bar is so cool! Seriously love it. 32 oz of beer for about $18 isn't too bad at all in a restaurant/bar. The food is very good as well. We tried the crispy chicken salad, onion rings, and a pizza. All a bit above average. Some of the foods were weirdly expensive ($12....for some frickin onion rings!?!?) but others were fairly priced ($14 for personal pizza). Service was good, but it took a while to have a server come to us and we were left rather confused when it came to paying the bill. They have nice outdoor seating and a corn hole set up which is fun!

  • Aug 05, 2019 by Sath V.

    The daily specials are very affordable. The beer wall is also amazing so much selections. Our server Angel was super attentive which was extremely positive for our experience.

  • Aug 05, 2019 by Anthony D.

    Service sucked. Plain and simple. It was an extremely slow night probably 7 tables in the whole restaurant at 8pm. The server seemed like she didn't care, probably assumed that we wouldn't tip her well so didn't really pay attention to us. Maybe that's an unfair judgement but that's how it came off as since her lack of urgency with anything. Heck the busser asked how everything was going with the meals and how everything taste where as the server didn't care. Maybe I should have brought this up with a manager at the time but I'd rather be passive aggressive and post it on yelp for everyone to see. Though the food is good, no complaints in that department.

  • Aug 05, 2019 by Patrick F.

    Great drinks. Went for the Sunday brunch. Food was decent for the buffet style and had good variety. Priced very well. Service was really good. Will be back.

  • Aug 03, 2019 by Oscar F.

    Loved the beers on tap! Loved that we could go up and pour own beers, the wings were excellent, pizza was great and chili cheese fries

  • Aug 03, 2019 by Jane T.

    I can't tell you how much better this place is. The remodel is beautiful, awesome patio, the service has been much better, and most important the food is 100 times better than before! New pizza oven, way better selection on the menu, and a fun self serve beer and wine wall. Thank you for coming to Orcutt!

  • Aug 03, 2019 by Ericka M.

    We went last Thursday for $5 tri tip sandwich night! Unfortunately, we were a tad late and they had run out. We ordered some other delicious entrees. That's where it went down hill. Our waitress didn't check on us as often as we'd hope. And to top it off, she forgot to put my boyfriends pizza in. By now my daughter and I had already finished our meals. We were a little upset but not really because (this is why we gave 4 stars) for one, we know it's a new restaurant so they're working out the kinks! And two, the manager or GM Ashley made it right with us. She saw us sitting with missing dishes and empty drinks. She made sure to get us refills and get our missing food that was not rung in in a timely manner and offered it on the house because of the mistakes made. She promised to make it right our next visit due to the unsatisfactory service this time! It was awesome to see the manager Ashley out on the floor helping her staff and getting things taken care of! Her apology and promise was sincere and for that we will be back and think this place has great potential once the grand opening jitters are gone! The food was great besides those mistakes

  • Aug 02, 2019 by Carlos V.

    My review is from Friday night. The place was very busy but yet we got a table within 10min. The food and service was excellent considering how busy it was with all the pressure the kitchen and wait staff had our food arrived hot and looking great . The flavors were all on point . Such a great place for a Friday or Saturday night sitting outside with the water feature and live music was perfect. Thank you. Michelle was a great server, she did a great job.

  • Aug 02, 2019 by Ashley S.

    My family and I absolutely love blast! The food is amazing and the staff is always tentative. We are regulars and come at least three times a week. The pizza and buffalo chicken sandwich are two of our favorite dishes. The general manager Ashley is always welcoming and constantly checks to make sure everything is going great. Our waitresses are always great and Jazmine has great customer service. It's nice to eat at a restaurant where all the staff seems to enjoy their work and you can truly see the teamwork. The cook, Juan comes out from behind the kitchen to ask how you enjoyed your meal and makes effort to make sure everything he sends out is high quality. I definitely recommend best!

    This place has totally evolved! Love the new tap wall and the pizzas are so good!!! Michelle, Ashley and Austin are just a few of my favorite staff members. Great selection of food and beer! I really like that they have wines, ciders and lots of different beers on tap. Can't wait to come back!

  • Jul 23, 2019 by kimberleeq2015

    But, you can check out Blast 825 that has come in it's stead. The Grand Opening was this weekend, July 2019, and if these crowds are indication of the restaurants success, it will be grand. Quirky and high energy level craft brewery with pizza and locally sourced burgers. Come check it out!

    Great opening! Musician Russ Douglas covering 60s and 70s Rock was great. Then Mollie Ringwald band was on! Super cool! The tri-tip sandwich with french fries were super delicious! Our server Jazmine was super awesome with Eliseo helping. The owners Wendy and her husband David were super friendly! We had an awesome time!! We also love David's 'younger' sister, Laura! They might start having West Coast Swing dances here too!!! Super cool hangout place!!!!!Super fun night! (*Super repetition - intentional)

    Cool concept where you can tap your on beer using a card. Decent amount of beer on tap. Although ordering a drink took a lot more time to sort out (had to wait a good 15 minutes for a mojito). Nice staff, we're generally really pleased (at least those of us who drink beer).

  • Jul 13, 2019 by Bryan E.

    Came in on Saturday afternoon, wasn't busy at all.  Greeted at door and took menus and set outside.   15 mins later a waitress delivers the beer they ordered 20 mins earlier.  She then turn and walked right by us walked back in restaurant.   Got up walked out not one employee was around.   My only previous visit was good.   Guess blame this visit on poor management and poor waitresses.

  • Jul 12, 2019 by Emily H.

    we went today and it has been quite a while. our burgers were AMAZING!!!! all of the burgers are ground tri tip and are as delicious as that sounds. super impressed with the food today. my husband and i each had burgers and we shared wings and beer. tap wall not operational yet but service and food was great today. We were/are regulars here for Sunday brunch when this was Rooney's. Glad to see they're keeping up with the "bottomless mimosas" on Sunday (open-2:00pm). Menu changed several times but it seems they've settled in and we have been happy with everything we have tried. Any of the sandwiches and burgers are great. The apps are also good. It seems as they have changed over they've gotten more beers and this is even pre-remodel with the self serve taps. Overall great place for drinks + munchies!

  • Jul 12, 2019 by Anisha K.

    Love this place! Excellent service and the food is delicious. I had the BLTA and will definitely order it again!

  • Jul 11, 2019 by Laura F.

    This restaurant has really come around. We had the fish and chips and they were awesome. Light and crispy and moist. Also had the artichoke appetizer but that was underdone. But the new owner/manager actually came by our table looking for feedback and we were able to let him know about this. We'll definitely come back and give it another try.

  • Jul 05, 2019 by Sue Rincon

    The staff were great( Vivi the waitress especially). Food was excellent!

  • Jul 05, 2019 by Kelly S.

    Our whole family came for dinner and we all enjoyed our meal! Even my very picky 9 year old loved it! She loved the Blast Burger! The Mac & Cheese with carnitas was a huge hit. The portion sizes are huge!

  • Jun 28, 2019 by Rachelle P.

    Our food was amazing! Highly recommend the Short Ribs and the bottomless House Chips! Atmosphere is nice and comfortable. Noise echoes a little, but you can still hear your conversations. Staff is very attentive and caring. Good place to go on a Friday Night!

  • Jun 28, 2019 by David M.

    Great food! Great service.  Michelle & Steven were awesome! Recommend for bar and in house brewery as well.

  • Jun 18, 2019 by Ari R.

    So I came in on a Thursday night, angel and Brian were bar tending and it was semi busy due to the warriors game, they stayed on top of everything and offered me drinks as soon as they saw my glass empty. I came in for 1 drink but these guys excellent customer service made me stick around a little longer their welcoming attitude and positivity made me want to come back. I had the steak plate and onion rings was so delicious and will be back to try the pretzel! Angel and Brian made it a wonderful experience!

  • Jun 17, 2019 by Julz G.

    We've dined at blast brewery several times and each time we have a wonderful experience. Our most recent visit we let the waitress know that we had driven a long distance just for the doughboy pretzel that my husband loves. She informed the manager who came over and gave us a complementary coupon for another pretzel next time we visit. So nice!  The service has always been good and the drinks are tasty. We usually sit away from the central bar area so it's never been really loud except during the last minute of the Warriors game last week! We should note that they have been closed Monday through Wednesday for remodeling opening late afternoon on Thursdays but soon the remodel will be done. We are looking forward to sitting out on the remodeled patio and enjoying their new pizza oven. Blast brewery is a great place for food, drinks and friends--and we don't even drink beer!

    I saw the ad on Facebook for the Father's Day Lunch.  It listed Sliced Tri-Tip, Ribs, Mashed Potatoes, and a fews other items but these items are the reason I asked my kids to take me here.  Even though I thought the price of $27 per person was high, my oldest son insisted that we go because he knew that's what I wanted. Well they didn't have any of that stuff.  We got there at 12:30 and they had microwaved tater tots, microwaved (and still cold) jalepeno poppers, microwave potatoes and microwaved chicken strips. They had some bbq chicken that was ok. Oh yeah, cold french toast was an option too.   They ran out of silverware so they gave us plastic utensils.  And yes, it was still $27 per person.  It was absolutely terrible. The only saving grace was that our waitress was very polite and tried her best. She knew we were upset about the food but really tried to make up for it by being super polite and prompt with our drinks. I felt bad for her that she was put in this position. I also felt bad for my son who paid the bill and wasn't offered a lower price since they didn't have what they advertised they would have.

  • Jun 16, 2019 by Marcie V.

    Ashley the GM and our Server Jasmine killed it for Father's Day Brunch!   Our first time at Blast and it was awesome!   Also the "purchase a $50 gift card and get a free T-Shirt and Hat" is an amazing deal and great incentive!  We will be back for Sunday Brunch!  Also the live entertainment was excellent!

  • Jun 16, 2019 by Katie C.

    Really like the new menu with new items and mew flavor. Looking forward to the pizza oven and the beer taps that are coming.

  • Jun 16, 2019 by Maria V.

    Great friendly service, clean and good food....coming back here when the tap wall opens...

  • Jun 15, 2019 by Michelle M.

    Super yummy.  Good food.  Great service.  We will be back.  Be back soon.  Remolding almost done

  • Jun 15, 2019 by Angelica N.

    Ordered Ribeye steak plate. Food was good. Kids enjoyed Nachos. Lots of beer choices. Clean environment and friendly service.

  • Jun 14, 2019 by Beth M.

    Excellent chill place to eat or grab a drink. It has a great atmosphere and the staff is great! The plates are good portions and tastes just as great. The pictures are of the tri tip and chicken club with a healthy serving of brussel spouts and french fries.  We will definitely be back soon when the "pour your own beer" station opens!

  • Jun 14, 2019 by Randy L.

    Great tri-tip sandwich with salsa (the only correct way!) and great service from Michelle. Made sure our beers were full!!

  • Jun 10, 2019 by Bruce C.

    I like this place.  I think it's much better than Rooneys .... if which was never an Irish bar.  Food is good, as is the beer, and the staff seems better

  • Jun 09, 2019 by Morgan D.

    We got the steak plate because we were just stopping in the see what spot had taken over Rooney's (miss that place!). The steak plate had flavor but it was way over priced! It was comical actually how much you got for the price. The place seemed to be doing some renovations so you can see they plan to add more. The layout is still that of Rooney's with more of an open floor plan and they added a wood fire oven it looks like. Other than that nothing would bring me back to this place. I'd say the reviews you rude are spot on. ( the 1 star ones that is) everything is pretty pricey. 5 stars for Jazmin however, she was a great server. It was slow and she didnt have very many tables but she did not bombard us too much. She was great and I would go back to see her ahe made it an enjoyable experience. Thank you

  • Jun 06, 2019 by M M.

    I love Blast! They have the best Brussels Sprouts and I can't wait to see when the pizza oven is done. Michelle and Ashley gave us awesome service.

  • Jun 06, 2019 by Sandy M.

    Can't say enough about this place. The food is great and the service is fabulous. Thank you Michelle for being so kind and competent. Because of you we will be back to see all the exciting new changes and additions. And to the owners, thank you for keeping the Brussels sprouts on the menu!!!  See you again after work very soon.

  • Jun 06, 2019 by FøxKittý W.

    Great service and delicious food. I will come again. Had good spicy buffalo chicken sandwich.

  • Jun 01, 2019 by Chelle T.

    Michelle and Steven were the best- great food, drink, and  fast service!! Had our bottomless chips flowing!

  • May 27, 2019 by Michele B.

    This place is great. The flower on my drink wasn't as perky as I would've liked but whatever. What does one really expect from a flower that has been picked to die on some aholes cocktail glass? But I digress....  try the soup.  OMGOODNESS try the damn house soup! Freaking phenomenal! I can't eat a whole steak so I shared one with my man, which means it wasn't as rare as I would've liked, however it was good for the over cooked piece of meat that it was. (It wasn't really, I'm just really picky/bitchy about over cooked steak) so I'm sure if I ordered it MY way it would've been amazing. Service was great, except the girl that tried to take my guys drink b4 he was done with it...   who tf does that?!    Whatever. It was good overall.  I'd go back. And order me a rare ass steak.  Like it's meant to be.

  • May 20, 2019 by Eva L.

    Service was SLOOOOOOOOOW. Came on a Thursday night, seated right away as there were a decent amount of people but by no means a full house or even a busy house. Our server barely tended to us--another server was helping us almost the entire time, even bitterly adding "you know I'm not your server right?" looool (we weren't flagging her down or anything she just came to help so I guess she was directing her bitterness towards her coworker to us?) ANYWAY we didn't mind too much cause we were just there for the beer and sudden onion ring cravings which hit the spot. Had to go up to the bar to ask for the check which also took a while to come but other than that, no complaints!

  • May 19, 2019 by Jon M.

    When this place was Rooney's we were regulars. We just went today and it will probably be the last time simply because the new owners increased the prices significantly across the board. The Ruben tasted like canned meat this time and it cost 16 dollars. The price increase can't be justified in my mind.

  • Apr 19, 2019 by Debra B.

    As early as 5:00 they are playing screechy loud music that sounds like static and hurts the ears. Please play music that appeals to someone over 20 and at a lower volume. The food is excellent but way over priced for this area.  Service is excellent, wait staff are nice.  This review is for the Orcutt location.

  • Apr 19, 2019 by Alex S.

    Went to dinner tonight with my family and it was hands down our best experience there. We've been a few times since the change. The host was so sweet. I wish I knew her name to give her a shout out. She asked where we preferred to sit, which I've never been asked before, and she brought our little one (16 months) crayons and 2 things to color. Our server Michelle was fantastic! Both ladies went out of their way to talk and interact with our child. It was greatly appreciated and our child absolutely loved it! The food was great as well! Great customer service with nice, genuine people.

  • Apr 16, 2019 by Bart

    Great food

  • Apr 06, 2019 by Ellice J.

    Change of ownership from ROONEYS. Wider food menu , good service . Great bartender . Have been multiple times and ordered variety of meals. We did have an issue with corn beef and cabbage on st. Patty's day  weekend - it wasn't cooked enough - very tough and chewy. All other meals have been tasty.

  • Mar 27, 2019 by April S.

    Trying for the first time and I'm not sure I'll be back. Had sliders (tri tip and carnitas) and salad. The meat was not very flavorful and was missing the sauces advertised on the menu. The server was great and the restaurant was clean (restroom too).

  • Mar 27, 2019 by Jesse S.

    My family came to visit and we wanted to go somewhere that could suit everyone's food wants. Rooneys seemed like a good idea, too bad it changed to 825. The service was good. The food not so much. Everyone had the same complaints about all of the food (keep in mind we are tried something different, tacos, sandwiches, Mac n cheese, etc) - the food was BLAND. And nearly everything tasted like butter. Just butter. I probably won't return.

  • Mar 25, 2019 by Tommy B.

    Awesome food! A lot of reviews here talking about the bad service. Either they got rid of the problem or we've been lucky but both times we've been there the service has been stellar! (Great job Jasmine!!) The burgers are really outstanding. Nice smokey flavor, same with the french dip. So far, the Wife and I have really enjoyed this place, and it's hitting my burger craving in just the right spot. I'd recommend giving this place another shot for sure

  • Mar 25, 2019 by Victoria A.

    Came here for dinner Sunday evening and had a really great experience! The atmosphere is so relaxed and enjoyable! My server was absolutely amazing! Tiffany took such great care of us she was so knowledgeable about the entire menu, beer alcohol (my husband was def testing her!) and she was able to pick out a good food item and beer pairing for my super picky husband! We will definitely be back!

  • Mar 24, 2019 by collinscasey74

    I was really surprised by the beautiful restaurant/bar environment combined with delicious food. The food has quality local favorites. The chefs put a special touch on the dishes they provide.

  • Mar 23, 2019 by Rebekah H.

    My husband and I came here for the first time and it was fantastic! The appetizers, tap beer and main entrees were delicious. The service was on point, not only was our waitress Silvia very attentive, but there was a buser/runner that made sure we were never in need of anything. There was also great live music! We will definitely be back! Thank you Blast 825 Brewery for a great evening!

  • Mar 16, 2019 by Wes S.

    So I came here on a slow Saturday afternoon. After waiting 1 hour and 15 min for a salad with shrimp. I got this pathetic salad with 5 shrimp that cost 9 dollars 20 dollars total for this pathetic plate of greens. So they add three extra after I complained and they were raw! So I ended up not eating. I talked to the Manager Vicky the Manager and she gave a bunch of excuses but that's all I got was excuses. Would not recommend this place and still had to pay for my ice tea all two glasses of it and spent more time on the table empty and had to ask for the chips. My friend ordered a hamburger and salad and it was literally cooking the greens on the hot plate. Maybe  825 brew should move to another area code because this wasn't our 805 home town feel.

  • Mar 09, 2019 by Nicole B.

    We've been here twice now for Saturday lunch and have not been disappointed either time.  Food has been great (we've had burgers and tri tip sandwich both of which were excellent!) . Beer is good.  Food is not super fast but if I wanted food to be quick I'd go through a drive thru.  Overall great lunch stop.

  • Mar 08, 2019 by Camala F.

    I don't know what the 3 star review is all about.  I've been here three times, all were very good.  Good bar food, good entertainment, good drinks.  In short, we had a blast.

  • Mar 01, 2019 by Diana M.

    We thought this place was great. We were visiting the area from San Diego to look for a new home and after exhausting morning of house hunting this hit the spot. The food was delicious, better then we expected. I am so glad we tried it out. I had a yummy chicken bacon avocado sandwich and sweet potato fries and my husband had the bacon avocado burger and fried brussel sprouts. The chicken was moist and the fries and sprouts cooked perfectly. They even have a kids menu and our son thoroughly enjoyed his grilled cheese and fruit. To top that they even threw in a free root beer float with the kids meal to sweeten the deal. They have a pretty extensive craft beer selection as well which is always a plus for us.  The service was prompt and friendly. We will definitely be back.

  • Feb 23, 2019 by Jimmy

    Short ribs to dir for!

  • Feb 23, 2019 by Michael M.

    My family and I eat there and it was so sad.  We waited over 15 minutes for two virgin pina coladas and a ice tea, no big deal.  We ordered two "Prime" ribeyes and I say Prime because there is not a chance in hell they were prime.  Prime is not choice and they serve choice and the low end of choice at that.  My sons ribeye had equal parts protein to salt it was not even close to be able to be eaten it was so salty, mine was well done.  My wife ordered the fish and chips which to be honest were very good however it came 5 minutes after my sons as well as my entrees.  We want this place just to be honest and serve correctly labeled proteins and pick up there service which is at this point slow and not nice.

  • Feb 23, 2019 by Honest R.

    These people in the comments sound way too entitled but I can't really speak on that cause I wasn't there. Just sounds like miscommunication and misperception Lol Anyways, I just came here for the first time. Ordered a michelada and a Cowboy burger. Both were super good and the staff was really nice. I forgot our server's name, she was only 18 but was super sweet! Def would go back

  • Feb 19, 2019 by Russ R.

    This was a Sunday noon visit, and it didn't go very well. We were seated right away and our server (Fanny) was friendly enough, she took our drinks order, a pint of Guinness and Cherry Coke, and when she returned within 3-4 minutes she took our order. On our previous visit the Manager (he also tends bar) gave us a business card that was for a free Tri-Tip Sandwich next time we come, so we ordered that, handing Fanny the card, then I explained that Rooneys used to have a Breuben on the menu, and the manager that gave me the free sandwich coupon told me they could make me a Breuben any time I come. I had to tell her the Breuben was actually a Reuben sandwich but it also has a hamburger patty on it, in addition to the Corn Beef, Swiss Cheese, Sauercraut, and Russian Dressing, and it was served on a toasted Brioche bun instead of Rye bread. She said she understood. As a side we ordered 1 sandwich with Fries, the other with Onion Rings. The place was maybe half capacity, and yet it was super noisy, a little uncomfortable to say the least. Seems they had a Buffet going on, so we saw person after person coming to tables with overstuffed plates. The noise was so loud we could hardly hear each other. When the food arrived around 20 minutes later, my Breuben was on a Brioche bun, but there was no burger patty at all, so it was just a Reuben on a Bun. If I wanted a Reuben I would have ordered the regular one with Rye. The Fries were soggy and super greasy, and they tasted like the kitchen staff hadn't changed the grease in a month. The Onion Rings had very little breading, and they too were greasy and also tasted like old grease. Evidently these cooks don't keep the same standards as when the place was "Rooneys Irish Pub".   Fanny finally came by to check on us, and by then we were ready to go so just asked for the check. She brought it and on the bill was the Tri-Tip sandwich. I pointed that out and she quickly stated she would delete that amount. She returned with a bill for $31.16.  I noted they raised the price on Guinness from $6 to now be $7.42 a pint.  Cherry Coke was $3.50, and the Reuben was $16 with an extra charge of $2 for the Onion Rings. The Tri-Tip would have been $14, but that had an entry and a deletion.  I paid the bill and left $10 tip. I am definitely letting friends that used to come with me to Rooneys know how it has changed from what it was. My wife and I left very disappointed with Blast Brewery and doubt we will be returning. This was previously 'Rooney's Irish Pub', and the owner joined forces with a San Luis Obispo based Brewery, so they renamed the place 'Blast Brewery'. We stopped in for a late lunch on 11/1/18 and the bartender greeted and seated us right away.  The menu has changed a little, but most of the Rooney's favorites are still featured, so we ordered the Reuben and fries, as well as a pint of Guinness and soft drink. Everything was Excellent ! We noted there were planned remodeling changes to the interior that will include a wall of 20+ self serve beer taps, and an area with a Pizza Oven having bar type seating around it.  We are anxious to see this as it progresses. When we paid the bill, the bartender handed us a complimentary Tri-Tip sandwich coupon, good when we next visit, so that was a nice surprise. Will we return? Yes definitely, but with friends next time!

  • Feb 12, 2019 by Emmett W.

    I would like to explain my 1st and last experience at Blast 825. I went with my entire family last week, 13 of us in total. Food was good but service was absolutely terrible. Our waitress (Tiffany), would only come every 15 minutes or longer to check in on our large party, even though there were only 3-4 other parties at the restaurant. Even though our waitress was slow and didn't attend as frequently as I would have liked, I was still ok with the restaurant as a whole. However, when we received our bill I noticed several items were charged full price even though they were half-off for happy hour. I found our waitress, letting her know that some items were not adjusted for happy hour pricing. At this point, Tiffany became very defensive and immediately asked "what items?!" In a sarcastic tone. I showed her the items, and she took the receipt without saying anything else. She then came back, handed me the receipt, without apologizing and walked away. At this point, my brother-in-law and I went up to another waitress and asked for the manager. This waitress then too became defensive and asked if there was a problem. We had to ask again for the manager. She finally brought over the manager ( or so we thought). We expressed our disappointment and he said that's not ok he will take care of it. We then watched the Tiffany argue with the "manager" for about 10 minutes, making our entire party wait. Tiffany came back to our table, handed the receipt to me forcefully and said: "is that better?!" And walked away. The happy hour meals were adjusted and 15% of our $250 bill was taken off. I then had to find Tiffany since she ran off again and asked if I could pay the bill. After we paid the bill we spoke with the "manager" again to only find out he was not the manager but the bartender. He then notified us that he would let the real manager know of our complaint. My sister then wrote a review on Yelp. The real manager (David F.) then replied with a tone similar to Tiffany's. (Maybe that's why the staff can act this way to customers.) David went on to explain to my sister how easy it is for an individual to write a negative review on Yelp. I don't know why he felt the need to explain how Yelp works, that wasn't our problem, it was the terrible service we received. Then David lied and said he took off $100 of our bill. This is completely false, I guess maybe he counted the amount they overcharged and never discounted the happy hour price?! Lastly, David stated how he was disappointed in our Yelp review and reasoning. Well, he going to be really disappointed with this Yelp review. I will not be eating at this establishment again as the service is terrible with staff and management being rude at every level.

  • Feb 12, 2019 by Joy A.

    Food was pretty good but the service was terrible.   The lady next to us had to go to the bar twice just to get service and a refill.  Went in the middle of the afternoon, the bartender was hard to find and nobody asked us how the food was, or if we wanted the check, or how we were doing.   It was pretty bad.   The lack of management is evident.   Bring back Roonies and their staff!

  • Feb 10, 2019 by Elizabeth W.

    UPDATE: Management listened to my complaint and now it's so much better! Thanks for hearing me and taking action to make it easier to find seats so we can support local musicians. This is a great venue for music and now with extra seating, it's even better. We were extremely disappointed because we came to see both bands that played this evening. We really wanted our friends to see Smokin' Gunz because they are a fantastic band, but the staff would not accommodate our party of 12. We were sitting up on the stage at first and knew that we would have to move when it was time for the second band to set up. We were told that they would set us at the table in the center room, but instead they seated a party of three. They told us to sit at the booth by the bar but that would not have enough space for everyone plus being closer to the band makes the entire experience great. There is an entire room that goes unused for some reason that made no sense at all. All in all, no one was willing to work with us and Blast lost a lot of money tonight. Extremely disappointed!!! I would have given just one star, but our server was fantastic and tried to help. The manager and one of the make servers, not so much.

  • Feb 09, 2019 by Roe F.

    I've been here twice and both times have been a pleasure.  I enjoyed the atmosphere, food and server was attentive.  I got the regular burger with a salad and my significant other got the cowboy burger with fries, both were good; we were really full and it was plenty of food.  I ate some of his fries and he didn't even notice because there was plenty of them.   They serve potato chips with a sour cream as complimentary appetizer.     The second time I went, I had the tacos and they were amazing! I had the tri tip and fish tacos.  They were both tasty but i prefer the tri tip, a little more flavor.  We also had the bacon wrapped shrimp as an appetizer and it was full of flavor. There was a band playing, made good ambience for a Friday night. The bar staff are also very attentive.  Recommend if you're going out with friends for drinks or date night!

  • Feb 08, 2019 by Annabelle B.

    We have come in a few times. We ordered something different every time and everything has been great. The menu has a large selection. The entertainment has been good. The staff is very friendly and quick.

  • Feb 07, 2019 by Paul P.

    I need to Blast Blast for not giving the karaoke DJ a good chance to establish Thursday nights. The people who showed had a lot of fun and spent money, now there is lame live single or duet singers that all the other local places already do. Bad bussiness move and not coming back unless karaoke continues, nor will my friends!

  • Feb 04, 2019 by Nicole W.

    I have been to this establishment many times and it's sad to say that this isn't the first time my experience has been unfortunate. While most of the food was lent bad can't say the same for the service. Our server (Tiffany) forgot multiple drinks, food and cutlery. She would not come back to the table for 15 minutes at a time and would still not have the drinks/food that we had ordered. The establishment was not even busy and the buser'swere waiting our table (not our server Tiffany). The bill was also wrong and when asked to review it she was rude. Asked to speak with the manager and he did not even bother to come to our table. 10/10 do not recommend!

  • Jan 13, 2019 by Camille P.

    Stopped by this brewery for live music and commeradery with friends. We enjoyed a cookie and vanilla ice cream dessert treat while we were there and friends had some appies and drinks. Overall ambiance was very laid back, casual which is nice. We are excited to try their Sunday brunch and bottomless mimosas for $25 one of these Sunday mornings. Served until 2pm. If you are looking for a casual, laid back feel with typical pub food items then this is your spot! Great beer list, wine menu and short cocktail offerings but I'm sure if you were looking for a specific cocktail the bartender would be more than happy to help you out. Music was ok, we were hoping for something a little more upbeat but perhaps it was the specific night we attended. We will be back!

  • Jan 06, 2019 by Chondra L.

    Love the change from Rooneys to Blast 825. Don't expect it to look like any Blast 825 Brewery though. The inside and out still looks exactly like the old Irish pub which is kind of confusing at first, but ask around and you'll find out that the old owners still are partners with the new business so it's this strange mash up of the Irish pub atmosphere with the Blast 825 Brewery menu. Which, is much much better than the menu when it was Rooney's.   They have great salads and sandwiches and burgers. I'm a vegetarian and they have a great homemade vegan patty made from grains and veggies. You can sub that on any burger they have! They also have great shareable apps including an awesome pretzel, nachos, chicken wings and coconut shrimp. You can also get little sliders and mix and match with a few different options. They also have a full bar and good beers on draft... including Jameson Irish whiskey on draft.... remnants from the old Irish pub vibe. They also have a great Sunday brunch which you can add the option of bottomless mimosas or bloody Mary's! Yum!!

    Loved our dinner here the other night! We were seated by the fireplace. The music was ridiculously loud so our server turned it down, so considerate! Our food came quickly, was hot, and was so delicious! We had the house Amber and Stout on tap and both were tasty, complimenting our tacos and steak.

    I am extremely disappointed with how we were treated last night, by your manager,  after we had finished our dinner.  I brought my family out with me and met up with friends to enjoy dinner, listen to Randy LeDune and also stay for the Smokin Gunz.  I love Randy and we were really looking forward to tonight.  It's not often I can get away and do something fun with my girls and friends- especially on a Saturday!  I had informed the person seating us we were looking forward to tonight and both bands.  I had talk to one of the servers, after finding out we were seated in the next bands stage, where would we be seated when the next band came up/arrived to set up.  I was assured no worry.  She had motioned over to the tables in the next room could accommodate or in the center room.  Several of our other friends arrived and were seated at tables- I guess it's the dance floor- and they would also need to be moved.  Well after paying for just our meals and 1 drink we were quickly moved out.  One server grabbed my plate that I wasn't even finished eating from.  My girls were hoping to try the desert and we all wanted more to drink, but our night quickly ended as your manager chose to close off the room that would have accommodated all of us and we were still close to the band where we could see them.  Your manager commented that we could sit at the bar where there was some seating, but my youngest daughter doesn't turn 21 until next month- so that wouldn't work and our party would not have fit.  So sad to have to leave while Randy was playing, as we had no close seats to be there to enjoy his show. So had to leave very early.  For our first visit to 825 Blast, I'm very disappointed.   There was no excuse for your manager to not accommodate all who ended up losing a seat last night.  You guys lost out on a lot of cash and tips, that's for sure.  BTW, your servers that worked with us were wonderful and did try to help, but your manager refused.

  • Dec 30, 2018 by Ms. P.

    Worst experience ever! Waited over 50 minutes to get our food because the manager gave our food to another table. Once our food was served our fries were beyond crispy and it looked like they just gave us the left overs from the bottom the trays. Horrible all around!

    I'm being generous with the star rating. When you could not sleep late at night because you were not needed at work is real maneuver. Customer service at the restaurant is okay. I went in with my girlfriend to see the type of food and service the place I work for provides and I was barely satisfied. As a customer the food is great it's just that I ordered my burger without tomatoes and you'll guess right... Over all the meal was delicious as I only paid $20 for two full meals (using my employee's discount) also staff is not so great. Especially a few white folks. I felt like everybody tries to be something they are not and that does not matter to me as 'you fake it till you make it' but what I do have a problem is when 'people' try to be more then they are. I believe degrading, name calling, and blaming one person on the spot when food is not ready is redicouls, especially when you are not the only one in the kitchen. Since I've been fired should I pick up my last check as soon as possible or do I wait till next pay check? Which is the fourth of January. Was a pleasure working with some of you and nice to meet ya'll. Merry Holidays  #life's too short have a blast!

  • Dec 19, 2018 by Tammy M.

    We had a dinner there the other night.  Mom and I decided to order the filet mignon and garlic mashed potatoes. It was amazing!  The filet was cooked perfectly and the service was great!  We will definitely be back!

  • Dec 16, 2018 by Alen K.

    I've been to this brewery a couple times, and never been disappointed. The service is very fast, the staff courteous, and the drinks great. It's usually not so loud that you can still have conversation.

  • Dec 14, 2018 by Karina H.

    Unfortunately my family's experience wasn't great here Tonight was our first night trying the place out. We got seated right away which was great! Another couple sat next to us & got served first although  we had arrived there first. Our server was Krista,She has a great smile & is very friendly. No complaints there. We waited an hour before we got served our food,She kept bringing chips n dip meanwhile. She apologized for the wait,We had 3 chip bags that whole hour waiting for our food. And then finally our food came out & unfortunately we were disappointed. I ordered the local burger with avocado,It came with no avocado they forgot? no big deal. I had asked for my burger pink in the middle. It was well done. Didn't have much flavor which I wasn't expecting with it being a high grade meat which is why I ordered this burger. I didn't like that it wasn't on a burger bun it was more of a sandwich. Husband was disappointed in the Phili chessesteak sandwich. The bread was a lil stale. My kids fish n chips were really good so that was great! Overall we spent 70$ on a phili cheese steak & a burger and fish and chips. I usually don't mind paying that when the food is amazing but I'm sorry to say we left disappointed. We had planned to take my kid to the movies but we missed it because we waited so long so we called it a night

  • Dec 08, 2018 by Laura B.

    What a horrible experience at this place.  First of all we check-in and they tell us they have seating in the back so we go sit down.  The manager on site Vicky comes over about 15 minutes later and says this is not for you guys it's for someone else you have to move.  The manager than proceeded to argue with our group saying this is not for you it's for another group.  We should have left but had children with us so after 2 1/2 hours we finally at.  I don't think I'd come back again.

  • Dec 02, 2018 by Vicky L.

    The food, service, and all around atmosphere has really changed since it's no longer Rooney's.  Sad to say I won't be spending time here anymore.

  • Nov 29, 2018 by Stephanie C.

    We are very glad to see the expanded menu and great food that Blast 825 has brought to old town orcutt ! We come here often and usually get the same thing which is Rueben and sliders ! Tonight we got the local burger which I highly recommend! It was so amazing and as usual the Rueben was amazing ! Our server was attentive and friendly and provided great service  ! It is great to see a small town like orcutt draw such great crowds on a Thursday ! The background music is always right on point ! Can't wait for the expansion that I hear is coming . We will be booking our company party here for sure

  • Nov 26, 2018 by Gene B.

    I had Blast cater my husband's 80th birthday this past Friday.  Melodie was instrumental in helping me make decisions on what food and appetizers would be best for us.  The food was delivered on time.  The appetizers were very good, and everyone raved about the shrimp poppers.  The dinner was very well prepared and very good.  I had many guest approach me and say that the food was fabulous!  I would highly recommend them for catering services.

  • Nov 19, 2018 by Ken L.

    Blast has gone downhill. The first time I visited was with a party of 17. Service was extremely slow and inattentive. I'm not sure who the waitstaff assigned to our table was and it seemed they also weren't sure. I  chalked this up to maybe because we were a large party, even though we had a reservation. I decided to try Blast again last night for my daughter's birthday, making the reservation o line. We waited 30 minutes for water and just about an hour for dinner. It was not crowded and it seemed like a lot of staff was standing around. The menu is good but execution seems to be deficient. I hope this changes for the positive!

  • Nov 16, 2018 by Isidro B.

    1st off I have to say the service was amazing. We were seated right away and the server was on point with drink refills and overall she made our experience that much more better. The food was great much more of a selection than when it was Rooney's. I will be recommending to friends and family.

  • Nov 15, 2018 by Meghan R.

    Service was excellent and food was delicious. The shepherds pie was my favorite! My husband ordered the beef dip and loved it! We brought our children who are the pickiest of eaters and even they were able to find something on the kids menu they loved. Will definitely come again.

  • Nov 13, 2018 by Kristine M.

    Use to be good... is how it should be known. When Rooney's (now Blast 805) first opened it was great. We went often & would take out of town family & friends. I'd be ashamed to do that now. The service years ago was hit & miss. Now it's just miss. The food use to be great , now it's not. My husband was thrilled to see the Shepard's Pie was still on the menu. It looked like the original, but it didn't taste like it. Sadly they used cocktail -pickled onions. Why??? He picked them out & ate around them. I had the Beef Dip . It was okay , not bad , but for the price. It should be better than Arby's. Our waitress was okay, sadly she was in a hurry to get back to hanging out w/ the other waitresses beside the bar. The server whom bought the food out was really polite & friendly. I really hate to leave a low star review. But like so many others before me it was necessary. We won't be back .

  • Nov 04, 2018 by T V.

    After two bad experiences, I went to the website to email the mgr but there was no link so I'll post it here. Went both times on a Sun morning, and the service was horrible. More than 45 minutes went by and the waitress still hadnt even asked if we wanted to order any food. Thank goodness we at least had a game to watch. Settled on the buffet cuz We were starving by then and it was our only option. We tried to order an appetizer as well and the waitress never even put the order in. Exact same thing happened the last time. By the time we were ready to leave we had to find the waitress to pay - and she had no idea what we even ate!  Ridiculous.

  • Oct 23, 2018 by Bart

    Great Service

  • Oct 21, 2018 by Valerie C.

    I've come here about 3 times in the past month. I must say, I am now a frequent flyer. I think the food is good and the portion size is worth your money. I tend to frequent places that make me feel welcomed and remembered. Sara is the bartender that I've come to know these past few visits and it is because of her that I will continue to show up and bring my friends. I'm a believer in "you get what you pay" for and I am very pleased with the service, the food and her specifically remembering who I am. I don't find too many places anymore where they truly care about who walks through the door. I'm not just another drink/food order. I will be spreading the word about the great service here.

  • Oct 18, 2018 by Patricia H.

    Went tonight party of 10 our waitress was Fanny she did and awesome job!! Very friendly and knowledgeable. All the food came out on time and was delicious.

  • Oct 14, 2018 by Kyle L.

    So many things to talk about, where to begin? 1.) The hours on the website are different from the hours on the phone number that you can call. Also turns out that they open at a different time than both the website and phone state. 2.) We went for what was advertised as the brunch menu but when we got there you had to purchase the buffet unless you wanted to order lunch. 3.) We asked for details on the bottomless mimosa/ Bloody Mary/ bloody beer deal and the server explained that the drinks were interchangeable. The bartender then said that we could not do that and had to stay with Bloody Mary's. After complaining we were finally able to change to the mimosas that we originally wanted. 4.) The servers talk trash about the customers within earshot of other customers. In conclusion there is no reason I will be coming back here, or recommending it to anybody else. This restaurant is poorly managed and the customer service lacking to say the least. I will gladly drive to AG to have a much better experience dinning out for football games. I wonder how long this place will last in Orcutt...

  • Oct 07, 2018 by Kya A.

    Dear Sara, I came for brunch with my friends, who work in the same industry as you and make our livelihood on tips.  We understand that you don't control the menu, which brunch wasn't available to us this random Sunday.  We know it's not your fault. We understand you can't control when someone makes the Bloody Mary mix wrong, when there's vanilla extract inside our Bloody Mary. We weren't attacking you personally for this. I PROMISE WE GET IT. We don't understand when our water and coffee glasses have been empty for 10mins. When 4 people have to go to the bar for refills of water and bottomless drinks. Or to order a drink. These are SIMPLE request asked for PAYING customers. Don't come to the table and say "I heard you guys needed something."  IM SORRY it's your job to fulfill the needs of your customers. I have great friends(slightly biased) but I promise you could have made good money if you would have provided the bare minimum service.                                          To the girl in the LA Rams shirt working today, thank you for helping us and simply just asking us if we needed anything multiple times even though we were not your table. We appreciated your kindness and service.  Dear BLAST 825 or Rooneys you need to figure out which one you are now. We came for brunch that is advertise on your menu. If this is something you can't provide every Sunday, maybe you should not put it on your menu. May I also suggest that your bartender shouldn't serve tables and bartend. They may not enjoy/or be capable of both. My large group loves/loved this establishment. And have spent many occasions here. If I were you and a single person spends over $100 in a 10 group table. I would hope you reconsider your guests service skills

  • Sep 30, 2018 by Nathanial T.

    Howdy folks. How's everyone on Planet Yelp doing? Well, it's time for another one of my "Nasty" reviews. So strap on your seat belts and get ready for the....? Oh Hell I don't know. But here goes the review. During a recent trip to the Santa Maria area I was disappointed to learn that Rooney's Irish Pub was no more. Ah shucks. I wonder if the owner of this business is reading this and already thinking something like, "oh Lord here is another person comparing us Rooney's." I'm sorry but I can imagine that replacing a spot like Rooney's is no easy task. I quickly learned that Rooney's is now the new Blast 825 Brewery. I thought to myself why not give it a try? Only fair to give a new business a chance before passing judgement and/or writing a Yelp review. So me and my family decided to go check out Blast. The first thing we did was order a couple of margarita on the rocks. It wasn't a bad margarita. Not the best I've ever had. But definitely not a crappy watered down lame excuse for a margarita like I was served at Harry's. I could taste the tequila which is definitely a good thing. Now lets talk about the service. I read a review someone that someone had written in which they complained about how horrible the service was and how they had to wait a long time for their food. I didn't find this to be the case. Our waitress was very attentive. At one point she politely asked us if we'd be willing to move to another table because there was a large party coming in and they needed the room or something like that. She even offered to give me a second margarita for free. She didn't have to do that as we would have moved without any complaints. But I won't turn down a free drink. Now lets get to the most important part of the review. The food. Well, the margaritas are equally as important. At least to a margarita junkie like me they are. I decided to go with something called the Saladino's Italian Sausage Sandwich. It sounded delicious at the time. However, when it arrived I soon learned that it would not live up to my expectations. I realize that we are not in Naples. But this Italian sandwich did not do anything to satisfy my "Nasty" taste buds. It was kind of tasteless and quite bland. All in all I would have to say that I was kind of disappointed with the Blast 825 Brewery. I did not have a "Blast." Don't get me wrong. It wasn't the worst dinning experience that I have had. But it was far from being one of the best. This may be simply because it is a new business and the new owner(s) have not had a chance to fine tune it. Either way, it was definitely nowhere near as bad as Rancho Nipomo. That place flat out sucks. The thought of that place makes me never want to eat another BBQ pork pulled sandwich again. Anyways, I hope that upon my return to Blast 825 Brewery things will have improved, such as adding a bit more flavor to their food. Until my next "Nasty" review may the margaritas go in you. Happy trails. NASTY NATHANIAL

  • Sep 28, 2018 by Debbie H.

    Very disappointing... we have been going to Rooney's since 2011..I had the  Reuben sandwich. It was very greasy and soggy.  The corned beef was nothing but bits and pieces.....

  • Sep 23, 2018 by Carrie L.

    Great menu and cute place. Horrible service. Very slow. Food was excellent, but never got our cornbread.

  • Sep 20, 2018 by Danielle S.

    I don't want to rate this place too tough because I know they are transitioning. Altogether the visit was OK. We had a really nice seating on the outdoor patio. The heaters were on and it was quiet. Absolutely great environment to visit with family PLUS it was dog friendly so that was awesome. The waitress was super quirky and very friendly. I liked her. However, I do believe she needed more training as far as beer and wine goes. She was unable to pronounce some wines and listed the beer rather quickly. (They didn't have a beer or wine list but I'm sure they are working on it in the future) Also, I really appreciated how she brought me a huge dish of cheese for my pretzel when I asked for more. That was thoughtful. At the end, she was on her cell phone while she dropped off the check and said thank you and I just thought that was kinda odd. The food was not bad but not terrific. It was definitely just ok. My mother's steak has to be sent back because it was a little too rare and my husbands food didn't come out until I was half way done with my meal. (And I'm a slow eater so that's saying something!) I definitely will be back once they've remodeled and everything. I'm looking forward to the improvements so I can come back to this review and give it a 5 star instead of 3. :)

  • Sep 06, 2018 by Jim F.

  • Aug 29, 2018 by Jon Thom

    The girl that Served us was never around and never checked to see if we needed anything. She was to busy talking to her co worker in the back. The food was over priced and my hamburger was raw!!

  • Aug 25, 2018 by Stephanie D.

    Please learn what vegan means. When I ask a question like, "Are the veggie burgers vegan?" Maybe know the answer. Maybe know that the burgers come standard with thousand island dressing and warn a person because that obviously contains dairy. Maybe inform the kitchen that this batch of sweet potato fries should NOT be sprinkled with cheese. Because nothing on the menu indicated that there was cheese on sweet potato fries, so how would I know to ask? I'm not bashing at Blast for not having options, I just wish the menu were more candid about what does and does not contain animal products so it doesn't have to be "a thing." That's so embarrassing for me as a diner. I hated having to return the bottom bun to the kitchen because I can't have thousand island dressing. But it didn't say it was there on the menu. Please learn what vegan means. I know I'm not the only one in town. The only reason I ever go out to eat is because social situations I despise force me to. It's the worst to eat out anywhere. Please make it slightly easier for me.

  • Aug 20, 2018 by W H.

    Waited an hour for food.  The steak had a weird chemical after test (I've never not finished a steak before.) the service was slow, hardly anybody in there. Our waiter who was being trained and was a nice guy smelled of cigarettes. The beer was good. The chicken wings were good. But I don't think I'll go back.

  • Aug 12, 2018 by Matthew Z.

    First trip to Orcutt for and this was my first stop. I was disappointed in the beer selection being that it only had one house beer but somehow calls itself a brewery.. they also have no beer menu. The beer however was a delicious IPA which in itself did not disappoint. I ordered the Rueben sandwich and it was probably the best one I've ever had, no kidding! They give you freshly made potato chips (for free!) when you sit down. Definitely worth the stop.

  • Aug 06, 2018 by Nancy Mcrc Hayes

    Rooney's Irish Pub, built like an Irish Pub.
    Love the Barkeeps, Hi Sara!
    The new name...…..blast...……..nope.

  • Jul 25, 2018 by Clarice77

    It is transitioning to Blast, but the food is delicious! The fresh made potato chips and dip is so good, you’ll want more! Atmosphere is great and the Chili appetizer is a meal all by itself, then they add 2 slices of grilled cornbread?!?! OMG, it was sooooo good! So good that I went back again...the next day! It is flavorful with chunks of Tri tip in it and they weren’t stingy at all! The Irish Nachos, with Tri Tip and instead of tortilla chips, they use cross cut fries! Wow!!! All we needed was the check and a wheelbarrow to roll us out!!!!

  • Jul 23, 2018 by Linda Tu

    Great Cobb salad. Love the salsa and pico de gallo. Though wished they had more dessert choices. Maybe next time.

  • Jul 22, 2018 by Amanda B.

    A few years ago we had a horrible experience at Rooney's and at that time I wrote a yelp review expressing our frustrations with the company and said we wouldn't come again. At this point Rooney's is in the preliminary stages of transitioning into Blast 825 and so we thought we'd give it another try. Walking through the parking lot to the door I had already glanced at my phone to check the time to time to see how long it would take for someone to greet us this time (last time lack of service was the main issue amongst several other things). We walked in and no one was at the front table where they ask you to wait to be seated. Already assuming this visit was going to be like our last I grabbed my phone and started browsing the internet. A couple minutes later a friendly gentleman came up to greet us where we were immediately seated and handed our menus. Still apprehensive we picked out what we wanted and prepared to have an excessive wait although the place was maybe 30% full. Again, proven wrong within minutes, someone came out to take our order and we even had two other employees ask if we had been helped. Our waiter, was normal and perfectly attentive to satisfy what we'd expect from any restaurant, however, I'm not sure what exactly his position was but a gentleman named Juan went above and beyond what we'd expect in a restaurant and completely changed our view of the place. We'd definitely come back and eagerly welcome the changes to come.

  • Jul 14, 2018 by Richard P.

    Checked out Blast 825 tonight and the food was outstanding! Great menu with lots of selections Appetizers, Salads, Burgers, Sandwiches, Fish N Chips, and Steaks! I had the Bacon avocado Cheddar burger and it was probably one of the best tasting burgers I've ever had! No Joke! They use ground Tri Tip for the burger patties! Great craft beer & wine selection with a full bar! The General Manager Vicki stopped by to check on us! Great customer service! Pizza & Self Serve Beer Wine taps coming soon! Keep up the Great work Blast!!

  • Jul 07, 2018 by Wudley H.

    Was bummed Rooney's sold business.   Blast will keep Lost Shepard's Pie dish.   It wasn't quite the same but was very good.  They will be redecorating the place, not sure what it will be.   But I like the idea of self serve taps.   I'll be back to try other food items.   Servers were super friendly.   BTW its Blast 825º Brewery, (825 degrees) not Blast 8250 Breweries.

  • Jun 24, 2018 by pgamma

    I love to go to Rooney’s for their Shepherd’s Pie. It’s the best ever as it’s beef is perfectly cooked and oh so tender. Yummm! Can’t go wrong. I hope they don’t change the menu and take out the authentic cuisine!

  • May 20, 2018 by Rob Carroll

    Really great place. I highly recommend the coming here. I had the bangers and mash my daughter Alex had the pulled pork and mac and cheese with the side of fries and then my other daughter Samantha she had the petite steak with fries. The food was phenomenal. My only suggestion is, when they bring out the bangers and mash or the shepherd's pie or any gravy heavy dish, add a piece of bread with the meal would be great. That way you can stop up all the good stuff.

    In general, we like to order different things so that we can sample each other's plates and Rooney's did not disappoint. For dessert we had the Guinness bread pudding and it was very very tasty. the atmosphere here at Rooney's is very good very quintessentially Irish. I had a flight of six of their custom bruise and me being a dark beer fan St Patrick's Porter really hit the spot but all the beers are really good even the ales and I'm not a big ale drinker.

    The prices were moderate and I'm willing to pay what I did for the meal. The waitress was top-notch and came by the table often and asked us what we needed so that was a very good plus for the restaurant. Overall this place is excellent and if you're looking for some awesome Irish food or I would say American Irish food this place is hard to beat so I highly suggest this restaurant and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

    The Fish & Chips looked great, but the bowl of Chili was tiny.

    We had Rooney's cater our wedding and they did an amazing job! Initially, the food was just going to be dropped off, but to ensure the food stayed fresh and warm, Jake and his team came out to the venue. Our guests commented on the delicious selection of appetizers and the abundance of food. They were also impressed by how quickly the team restocked and kept the buffet tables looking nice. They even made a platter just for us and brought it to our table to make sure we had food waiting. I quickly got to nibble a few bites but just the gesture itself, going above and beyond, demonstrated excellent planning and execution on their part. Many thanks to Jake and the Rooney's team!!!

    This place is great! Love the seasonal beer and the service was also great. This was my first time here and I will come back. One of the best places of the central coast..

  • Sep 09, 2017 by Thomas C

    Upon entering I was immediately excited for what was to come. Very inviting, very open, good music, games on the TV, and quickly greeted. My pops even got a sampler before he ordered his beer which was nice. The setup was great for the hope for good food, which quickly faded. The burger was a little on the pink side in the middle, not bad, but eh. My dads chowder wasn't what he was hoping for. All in all it wasn't bad, not super great, but not bad.

    I came in to try their beer which consisted of an Amber, a Blond and a Porter. They were out of the 1 style that is driving the market.... IPA. Only 3 of their handles and probably 3 times that many guest handles. It amazes me, seeing that they brew on-site, that they wouldn't be pushing their own wares. There is no higher profit than selling "your" beer by the pint in your establishment. What gives?

    We got excellent service in Rooney's! We had drinks and chips brought promptly, and our order was taken quickly. Then our food came right away and was hot and delicious! Our family ordered Reuben sandwiches and a bratwurst sandwich. They were amazing! Our server came and checked back often, filling drinks and bringing whatever we needed. Very pleasant dining experience!

  • Jun 20, 2017 by Ari37

    First, Rooney's is in a great location (if you live in or are visiting Orcutt) and the building is excellent. I've never been to a pub in Ireland, so I can't say it's "authentic", but it looks great. The surroundings are very well done. When it first opened I went a few times and was very pleased with the food, though not pleased with the crowds, and the service was iffy. They made a few menu changes that I didn't like, so that lessened my desire to eat there. In the last year or so I've just found the crowds, noise, and iffy service to be more than I'm readily willing to endure. All my friends who drink love this place, so if sitting in a loud, crowded pub and downing beers while eating marginally above average food is your thing you'll probably be satisfied here. We don't drink, so that probably colors my review (though they really don't have anything "fun" to drink that is N/A. My wife couldn't even get a Shirley Temple). I do like the bangers and mash, and my wife is very fond of the shepherd's pie and the corn beef, so now we will occasionally call in an order to go and bring it home.

  • Apr 10, 2017 by Joy Nichols

    Rooney's is won of our favorite dinner places. The food is delicious although it can be a little too spicy. The servers are very accommodating and will make additions or changes easily. The bar serves beverages that are better than most places. The margaritas are the best but the beer is terrific too. It gets noisy sometimes but that's one of its charm.

  • Apr 03, 2017 by Rebecca Lynn Ballard

    The food was superb. I had the shepherd's pie, creamy cheddar chive mashed potatos, gravy, fork tender short ribs braised in Guinness topped with carrot ribbons, fresh peas & arugula. Simply delicious! The only reason I deducted one star was for the service. The hostess was dimissive, the service was slow, & when I asked about making reservations for Easter Brunch as I was leaving the hostess said," Yeah, just a minute" and walked away. I finally gave up & left

    Brought my brother here for his birthday and it was his first time. We came on a Saturday afternoon at 1 pm. Our party of four was placed in the back by ourselves. Our waitress was friendly but not very attentive. The food was good but not the best we've had here. It used to be one of our favorite places to eat at but is no longer one we jump at the chance to go to. Service is not what it used to be.

    My daughter and son-in-law took me here on their last visit Disappointing to see my favs have not been kept on the menu I loved the tri tip sandwich and the BLT was one of the best I've had My son-in-law says it was the best Reuben he has had!

    This place has the potential to be awesome! The Irish Red Ale is excellent. But... our waitress was slow and inattentive. The food could have been amazing but wasn't. Best tasting sweet potato fries I've had. But they were cold by the time they made it to the table. I also ordered a grilled cheese sandwich. The flavors were excellent. But the execution was poor. The bread was stale and dry. But not grilled or toasted. The crust was inedible. If done properly, would have been an excellent meal. I will try this place again, but hope for different staff.

  • Feb 14, 2017 by Tim Karen Marshall

    They had things screwed up from the minute we walked in, with reservations I might add. Most were very unhappy with the kitchen with wrong orders ,burnt buns, no bacon or raw bacon and taking forever to get our food. Some blamed the waitress but she has no control over the kitchen. We're just lucky it wasn't crowed....maybe 3 other tables and our large group. We won't be going there again!

    I hate to only give this 3 stars because the overall feeling and environment at Rooneys is amazing! The reason for this rating is we were there on Friday night and while I'm a huge fan of live music (and the band itself was great!) and I'm not sure if this is always the case, but the music was sooooo incredibly loud we literally had to either scream across the table to talk or be right in the persons face to hear. I honestly can't believe how loud the music was, totally disruptive to the whole ambiance of this otherwise super awesome place. Again, this was my first time here so I am not sure if the music is always so loud, but it was a huge negative. My head was pounding when we left, and we ended up going to Elmers where we could enjoy a conversation, and still have music in the background. We also had an issue with ordering food, we were provided menus when seated but then told the kitchen was closing (maybe we had waited too long to order?)

    Three of us ate there on a Thurs. night. We thought it would be a good place to go on a whim and not as crowded as when we try to get in on a Friday night.We were each given a bag of their homemade potato chips, their signature appetizer . They were stale tasting and served with a new dip. Something like green goddess dressing. My husband tried the special soup of the day, shrimp consumme. It honestly tasted like they were trying to get rid of some old shrimp. It was very strong, tasting of maybe dried shrimp or shrimp sauce. The burger , $15, was very mediocre. My son ordered fish and chips and looked like someone had opened a box of frozen fish and a few frozen fries, cooked them up and served them. Not what I'd expect. We were very disappointed in a place that usually serves up average food. They are way overpriced for what we got!

    in for a beer and a snack - second time there. Both times the service was good, this time I am only giving 4 stars, not as happy with the potato nachos as I was with the pulled pork sandwich.

    I visited the pub for the first time tonight to experience karaoke. I left without being served! I sat at the bar for at least 10 min without any eye contact from the bartenders. When I tried to wave one down its like he looked right through me. Then I watched the same guy who just ignored me spark up a delightful conversation with the female bartender who also didn't acknowledge me or even say hi!! while I waited!!! They were not that busy. So I then walked to the karaoke stage to ask when it would start. Was told it was just about to start. Then, I saw the male bartender who recently ignored me and I asked, "excuse me can I get a drink" as I walked back to the bar. Once I sat down at the bar he was no where to be found and the female bartender was waiting tables. A few more people rolled in and a third bartender was near where I sat, he pretty much immediately went to them.... This is not good customer service guys and as a new patron it drove me away!!! At least act like you care and welcome each new face at the bar! Try harder next time

  • Jun 22, 2016 by Aqualung A

    I went with a few friend to knock back a beer or 2 and to have something to eat. The service was no-existent, my guess because we did,t sat at the bar? When we did get feed the food was fair to almost good. but the service sucked hard, once we got out food we never saw the same server again. The when we finally got the bill. it was like being charged for 4 star dinning and all we got was 1.5 food and service. Sorry I would be going back. to boojwah for me.

    Traveling up the coast we were staying in Santa Maria. The hotel gave us a list of places to eat and Rooney's was our pick after seeing the photos of the pics on Yelp. But I must say that photos do not do this food justice. It was absolutely delicious. We each had a small Caesar salad, the Shepard's pie and bread pudding for dessert. The Irish beer on draft is enough to visit this place. The Shepard's pie was not like any other Shepard's pie I've ever had. Braised short ribs on a bed of cheddar mashed choice potatoes, piled high with arugula and drizzled with beef gravy pearl onions and peas. Beyond delicious. The ingredients in all there food seemed freshly prepared not from cans freezers or boxes. A feast for our taste buds. The bread pudding had Irish whiskey toffee sauce and ice cream. Might go back just for that. Well done.

    We went in for a Birthday party with about 30 people, it being the birthday girls 1st time there, she was excited to try Rooney's out. The night started out with the waitress dropping her tray of drinks on my 7 yr old son, which they got him a Rooney's Tshirt that he LOVES. (Thank you) Needless to say service went down hill from there. Luckily for us Leann stepped in and helped out and helped make things right. They food was Great! My Bonny Blonde beer was yummy. We will be back,we will just be a little leery about service next time. And Also Thank You to Jake (the owner) for taking the time to come and talk to us about the situation, it was greatly appreciated.

  • Mar 25, 2016 by Joe Scotty Scott

    Depends who is working on the management floor ... Same with the quality of food ... Quit coming two years ago because of poor service and fair food. Note: Grand Opening and first year great value, quality, service! As other family took over, everything went downhill quickly!

    We had not been back in over two years… Tried happy hour, and was impressed about the changes…

    Return twice recently with my clients to have celebration dinners, and received excellent service, and food!

    When we explained that we hadn't been in recently in over two years and were impressed with the quality of service and food… It was explained to us that you had a new chef, and the entire staff was retrained… Genius!

    Tonight, we came by for happy hour, only to find that the old Rooney's head returned ... Poor service, little to no value, and food was pitiful. Waited 15 minutes just to speak to manager on duty, who was flirting with waitresses, and sitting with patrons at the bar. I guess you have to be your best friend to get good service at Rooney's!

    When the Mr. Family manager finally came over, and I was sharing with him the experience, patrons chimed in and explain to him that this is what goes on in your restaurant when you're not paying attention… "This man is only trying to help you, you should listen ..,"

    Anyway… I donated my $15 gift card offered for the food I did not receive, instead of a credit and gave to another patron.

    Obviously I will not need the gift card… It is unfortunate that younger family, does not have the same commitment, and work ethic that it took to build a fine restaurant?

    We've been in this area for over a week now and this restaurant is our favorite so far. Such a cool establishment. The food was so good. I had the fish and chips which is my favorite pub fare. My husband enjoyed his corned beef and cabbage. Both were excellent. The fresh potato chips served were just yummy, and I don't usually like potato chips. The highlight for me, was the side order of brussel sprouts we ordered. Wow! Sounds weird, but delicious!

  • Aug 18, 2015 by Paul B

    A very popular pub in Old Orcutt. Among the possibilities to eat at night this restaurant stands out in Old Orcutt. The food has an Irish slant but is far better than any Pub I've been in in Ireland or England. The staff if excellent and you'll get seated quickly - if there's room! Well worth your effort to find this restaurant and stay for a while.

Our friendly server Lianne greeted us and took our orders, being sure to answer all our questions. She helped us decide on what to order. All meals were great. We ordered the Roasted Chicken, the Blackened Salmon and the Shepherds Pie. We really enjoyed everything!

    Good beer choices. I love getting a flight to taste whatever they have. Yummy food, good service. I love free the potato chips and dip. My fav is the Irish nachos. Wowza. Hubby and I are locals and probably eat here twice a month or more.

  • Jul 10, 2015 by Alohagurlie

    I had I hopes for this restaurant but it was a flop. I feel like I'm being pretty generous with the 3 star rating. This place has the appeal of a cool hip pub that serves Irish style food but I was disappointed in my food. They have a bar here and I'm sure all the beer was good so if your looking to watch a game and have a few drink then this place might be more your speed. As for me I was hoping to get some delicious bangers and mash and a nice thick cup of corn chowder. Like I stated earlier I was disappointed with my meal. The soup was thin and seemed like it came out of a can and the bangers and mash was just so so.The menu said it came in a Guinness sauce but the sauce I got seemed like they just poured the beer in my bowl. Now I like a nice beer like anyone else but not as a sauce for my mashed potatoes. I don't know maybe that's just me lol. This place maybe was just having an off night as my family who lives near here really enjoys this restaurant and raves about it. I would be willing to try it again sometime in the future and hopefully I'll have a better experience. So try for yourself as it is a neat idea of somewhere to go that's a little different from all the other restaurant and brewing companies in the area.

  • Jul 08, 2015 by Jerry B

    Tim Rooney, owner of Rooney's Irish Pub has it dialed in for authenticity. The only thing missing are the images of the Irish countryside leading up the front doors. The pub has a festive atmosphere and was designed to accommodate both drinkers and diners alike. During NFL football season, over a dozen flat screen TV's can be seen showing your favorite team or game while you hoist a tall one with your friends. If you are a Green Bay Packer fan, you will be Tim's favorite as that's his team too!. Food is typical pub faire serving everything from Irish "Nachos" (cross cut fried potatoes served nacho style) to Bangers and Mash to Irish Stew. And yes, for us vegetarians he even offers Veggie Burgers and an awesome hummus plate that will fill you up. Rooney's is a wonderful watering hole for locals and visitors alike. Don't miss it.

    While reviewing Trip Advisor and Yelp we read about this Pub and after a long drive it sounded good. We were surprised the food and Beer were amazing. My wife had a very good speciality mixed drink and I had their brewery sampler, we liked all the samples. I especially like the Porter and had a pint with dinner followed by a sample of 15 (?) year old Jameson's. I returned the next day thank Jake and Ashland Rooney for their hospitality and raise a pint or two of Guiness. Looking forward our return.

    Twice I've tried this restaurant because I really wanted to like it, once with family and once with friends. I had hoped the first disappointing experience was because it was an off day for the cook. Then when it happened again, I decided it was a pattern. Beautiful surroundings and all the potential for a hot spot if the food matched the atmosphere and service. We did leave comments both times in hopes of improving the menu. I thought there would be more Irish specialties on the menu. Maybe most people go for the entertainment. I haven't tried just going for that.

    Five of us had an early dinner on a Wednesday evening. All five had different food/drink selections and all were good. Nice portions on the food. The bangers and mash was outstanding. Service became had to obtain as the crowd increased. Also learned that the happy hour drink prices on the menu did not apply since we were seated at a table, not at the bar.

  • Feb 05, 2015 by mpooyan83

    My boss took us here for a work lunch. After were sat, it took literally 10-15 mins for the server to make his 1st appearance to ask for drink orders. It took quite a while for our food to come out, a little more then what fish and chips should take I think, however when it did come out, it was pretty darn good, enjoyed the fish n chips very much. It also took the server quite a long time to decide to bring our check after we were done eating and sitting there for a while. Looked like he was flirting with one of the female waitresses instead of following up with his tables. I would go there to eat again, but I'd like a different server next time that's not slackin off. Food rating alone: 5 stars - service: stars.

    Expected a long wait, since there was a football game on and the place was crowded, but luckily, our food arrived quickly and was good. Ordered the Reuben, just to be traditional, and was not disappointed. Another in our party ordered the special mac n cheese (they had been there before and liked it) - said it was very good. Nice atmosphere.

  • Oct 23, 2014 by Caro W

    We went early on a weeknight, every little thing was perfect! I know the place gets full and probably noisy, but it was quiet when we were there. All beers (love that they serve tastes of the home brewed ones) were cold and delicious, and quite different from each other, making the tastes a good idea. Jesus, our server was kind, attentive and quick. Our food was perfectly prepared, even the bun on the pulled pork sliders was top notch, buttery and crisp at the edges. The pork had some sauce, but was not drowning in it. Bangers and mash? cozy, yummy comfort food! Go to Rooney's, early on a weeknight for quiet, on the weekend for a roaring good time.

    Fine Food and Family Fun. Rooney's irish Pub is the best in the Central Coast. the prices are fair and affordable, great atmosphere and the best micro-brews ever. Now they have live music on Sundays and offer a great value to an already fabulous level of service. I strongly recommend this Restaurant!

  • Sep 27, 2014 by KarlieStrong

    I love visiting Rooney's! I love the chips!! We have come here frequently since it opened, and are always pleased with the food, selection of beers, and the service is decent, could be a bit better, but never terrible. I love their lost shepard's pie and their ceaser salad. Definitely could amp up the amount of dressing on the salads, they seem a bit dry, but really good flavor!! My other suggestion would be that the servers are just a little more attentive, but all in all we love Rooney's and love the food!

    They listened to my last comments and took it to heart. My compliments to the owner!. I was a little apprehensive when friends wanted to take me to Rooney's. It was last night, Saturday July 26, 2014, 6pm. We were seated right away. I went to restroom to wash and found the bathroom sparkling clean. I returned and was asked for my drink order, so I ordered a pint of Guinness. It was brought to me within 2 minutes. Our server then took the food order. I asked specific questions regarding the prep, ingredients, and flavor of the Bangers and Mashed vs: Shepherds Pie, never having either of these here before. She told me what each contained, and since their pie was made with beef, not lamb (shepherds don't tend cows, they tend sheep), I opted for the Bangers and Mashed. Her description of the meal just made my mouth water with excitement. After everyone else ordered I placed mine, so with all the orders in we were surprised to see within 15 minutes all the food arrive. One friend had a Club Sandwich, another a Salad, my wife had the Fish and Chips, and I the Bangers and Mashed. We were all impressed. Everything was served hot, obviously not microwaved, and absolutely delicious. I totally loved my Bangers and Mashed and highly recommend it. Everyone else at the table really enjoyed their food too. My wife said the Fish was better than her favorite English Fish and Chips place served. Bravo for Rooney's, they listened to my last comments and took it to heart. Servers were well trained and knowledgeable, the food was prepared fast and properly, and absolutely delicious. My compliments to the owner! -----08 Jun, 2013----- Food just ok, servers seriously lack training.. When first arriving the hostess seated us in a booth with torn aged vinyl, then brought a glass of water, but it had ice and a straw in it. The straw was immersed in the water, so very unsanitary. I told her I did not want water with ice or a straw, so she returned with water with a straw, no ice. It was obvious she did not listen to my request. The Bartender came and asked if I would like something to drink, so orcered a Guinness on tap. A server then came and again asked for the drink order, and had to tell her the order was already placed. A different server came to get the order, and I ordered a Bruben (this is a hot Reuben sandwich with a Hamburger patty, Corned beef, Swiss cheese, Russian dressing, and sauerkraut on a Burger Bun), and she asked how I wanted the burger so I said medium rare. She repeated medium, and I had to correct her with medium rare, not medium. The others at the table added their orders and she left. Food arrived within 15 minutes, but a guy brought it out, not our server. Taking a bite I quickly noted the burger was well done, so it took another 10 minutes to get our servers attention. When she came over I told her the meat was well done and she immediately blamed the cook saying she told him I wanted medium rare. She took the plate back, and in less than 10 minutes returned with a new Bruben. It was cooked medium rare, but had absolutely no seasoning, and the bun was sogging wet with meat juices. I was very disappointed but just ate half and took the other half home. I knew I could add seasoning and replace the bun, so I did when I got home. When the server returned with the check she just picked up my glass, never asking if I wanted another Guinnes. This place needs the cook trained to prepare food according to how the guest wants it, the food needs proper seasoning, and the meat should be allowed resting time so as not to ruin the bun. The servers need to be trained properly, not serving water with a straw in (unacceptable), listen to orders, not throw the cook or anyone else under the bus (we don't need to know whose fault it is, very unprofessional), and the servers should be the ones bringing out the meals. They also need to check to see if the meal was prepared to satisfaction, not having to be flagged down. I tip 20% but should have withheld my tip oin this case. I will probably return and give them another chance, hopefully they will read this and improve. We'll see.

    We visited the Santa Maria area for a 3 day weekend. Had read about Rooney's online and had to try it. We were not disappointed. I had the fish and chips, and my wife had the turkey club on marble rye. I loved my fish and chips, but when I finished I got to try some of the turkey club and if/when I go back, that's what I'm having. What a great sandwich! Service was great.

    It was the cap to the matriarch's 90th birthday and the gang of 20 or so family members was in a good mood. Rooney's accommodated us well, seating us at two tables, with attentive service and good food, and their own brews were excellent. What capped the evening was a choir that started singing Wimoweh -- that brought us to song, too. Then some choir members gathered round the matriarch and sang her Happy Birthday. You probably can't count on that sort of thing happening, but it was in an Irish pub. I've seen great things happen in Irish pubs, so I wasn't overly surprised. In all, a great event. We'll be back.

    Service is usually good. A wood interior for the entire place which works well. Beer on tap is usually very cold. It's definitely worth visiting. Food is also quite good except for the fried baloney sandwich which is quite possibly the worst sandwich I've ever had. Everybody makes a mistake now and then.

    Great food. Though for fries and soda cost was somehow more than a burger fries and soda. And niether server nor manager could explain why.

    This is by far one of the best restaurants in this area. It is located in the old section of Orcutt, with several other restaurants. Rooney's serves wonderful pub food, the specials nightly are worth trying, the selection of beers, especially the ones brewed on site, are extensive. The wine list is a bit lacking but this is a pub. There is outdoor seating with heaters. Worth finding!

    We had a quick lunch at Rooney's and were pleased that we had stopped. The menu is classic pub food, well prepared and voluminous. The beer list was extensive. Considering the Central Coals area where Rooney's is located, the wine list was more moderate, but Irish pubs aren't known for their wine lists. I'd go to Rooney's again if I was in the area.

    Good food. Good service. Their beer selection is lacking.
    Update: visited a week ago and there was a menu insert listing their house-brewed beer. I tried the Irish Pale Ale and liked it. It was a bit under carbonated but still good. My new rating: 4.5 stars.

    We were traveling California and looking for a place to eat Christmas Eve. Found Rooneys through the hotel we were staying at. Good replica of an authentic Irish pub. Food was good and they give you enough to ask about sharing dishes; they really load you up on some. Have a number of good draft beers and of course they have Guiness.

    A good time was had by all in Orcutt, California. Five of us had dinner at Rooney's "Irish" Pub. It looks sort of like an Irish Pub; but, since it is fairly new, it lacks the patina of the real thing. Our server was good. My Rueben was OK. The fries were OK. If you are longing for an Irish Pub, this is not the place you are wishing for.

    So there must be an American chef in the kitchen here. This was a great find for someone who is just moving to the area. What we liked are the: (a) Food, (b) local beer, (c) atmosphere and (d) cheerful service. We stopped in for lunch while house hunting in the area, partly because they had a wi-fi we could use and were so pleased, that we came back for dinner knowing that the Colts/Titans game would be available to watch. Go Colts!

    I love Rooneys. I lived in Santa Maria for about 6 months and Rooney's quickly became one of my favorite spots. Pros: They brew their own beer (and it's awesome) Excellent service Amazing food Special dinners where their chef designs a meal to pair with beer or liquor Free wifi (password is "rooney007") Cons: A little pricey for the area - but I don't think it's over priced Sometimes it gets very busy since it's the only decent Irish Pub for miles around.

    I came here for dinner with two friends and I must say the food is fantastic! I had the Corned Beef and it was the best I have ever had. The Shepherd pie is also great. For dessert I recommend the bread pudding. They also have a great selection of beer. My personal favorite is the Angry Irish Amber Ale, the St.Patrick Porter is also very good

    We found this pub on a resent trip to Santa Maria. The employee's are very friendly from the hostess all the way up to the management team. A must try is the Fish and Chips. FRESH cod deep fried in a wonderful beer batter, you can really taste the beer!! Served with a ton of fries and a light cole slaw. Real good Pub bar menu a lot to pick from. Do yourself a favor and take a drive down to the city of Orcutt and visit this place.
