"I have been here several times and each time we dined indoors we were seated in the dining area adjacent to the bar. That area is far too noisy to carry on a conversation if the bar is busy because the loud laughter and shouting from the bar just bounce over the hardwood floors and walls. It's not a warm, welcoming room to have dinner. However, I would rate the food much better than the ambiance. We have enjoyed everything we have tried at Handles. (The outside eating area is better, but only nice when the weather is warm.)"

"Spontaneous date night out and we snagged a last minute reso. Dinner on the patio was relaxing. Meat loaf was to die for. But summer is right around the corner. Time to fill the propane tanks and replace all those broken lights."

"The pork Nachos are the best nachos I've ever had. I've brought many friends here just to have the nachos and everyone is always impressed. The street tacos, Kobe sliders and meatloaf are also really good. The Mac and Cheese needs work (flavorless) but the biggest thing the restaurant needs to improve upon is service. The bartenders are always slow with the drinks, the kitchen seems like it's always a bit behind and the waiters appear "new". Again, because of the nachos and mostly great food, I continue to come here. I think this could be a fab place with some improvements."

"It was a good experience. However, there were a few areas for improvement. It was not terribly busy though service seemed a bit on the slow side.
My wife ordered a top shelf Mandarin Orange Martini which was served with Olives and not an orange twist. This is pretty basic stuff. She also ordered the Kobe beef Sliders. When you order a dish with Kobe beef you are expecting the best and medium rare. She received what appeared to be well-done hockey pucks which she couldn't chew. That's a real shame. Outside of that our meals (6 of us) were pretty good.
I may give them a second chance to see if there is improvement.

"We came for dinner on a Sunday. Our server was attentive but not over the top. The food was great with good menu choices for adults and kids. We would definitely visit again. We have given a lower score for ambience because another guest had a really loud voice and used it to 'entertain' a young child in her party. It was distracting for other guests and made conversation at our table quite difficult sometimes..... Not the fault of the restaurant but it did spoil the ambience for us."

"This was our first time to Handles. We picked it because of the extensive beer list. The beer variety was great, the food was pretty good too, and the service was top-notch. I was actually blown-away by the knowledgeable attentive service. If you're looking for pub food and great beer and/or drinks...try Handles...it's great!"

"I don't know why this place has negative reviews, it's awesome! Nice service, spacious and clean. It's fabulous bar food w/out the ruckus.
The Pork Nachos were huge and to die for!
We also had the fish and chips and porkchops, also delicious.
Really big selection of beer as well.
I will definitely be back to try all their small plates.

"The service was so poor that I thought about emailing the restaurant to let the owners know of the situation Sun eve, but they don't have an email address. After reading the Yelp reviews I realized that our dining experience wasn't unusual.
So stick to the bar and appetizers, that seems to be where they want to excel.

"Haven't been here since it was the Pleasanton Hotel and I was impressed. Had the bison burger and my daughter had a burger. They were great and the fries were awesome. Very friendly staff and my 6 yr old grandson enjoyed it also. Great beer menu too"
