So grab a pint and enjoy comfort food in a whole new way.
1 Haven Gastropub
For a first-timer, there's no better place to go than Haven. They've got more beers than you can count, a great menu that veers upscale and the friendliest staff you can ask for. They give as much attention to the food as they do to their worldly selection of beers, so you can be sure that you'll find the perfect pairing of bite and brew.
Tucked away inside 5 Crown (one of your favorite restaurants, no doubt) is SideDoor. Enter through the side (naturally) and you'll find yourself in a casual spot that serves up cheese boards, charcuterie platters and pours some of the greatest bears from around the world.
3 Crow Bar & Kitchen
4 Entourage Gastropub
5 The Crosby
Hipper than hip and cooler than cool, the Crosby is Downtown Santa Ana's jewel. With a great crowd, a menu that gives formal restaurants a run for their money and live music, this bar cum restaurant is sure to have you coming back for more.
