An amazing craft beer bar and bottle shop, with 21 taps and dozens of bottle options that you can enjoy on site or take home/to go. They have a very decent small food menu (sandwiches, cheese plate, pizza/flatbread, soups, pretzels). If that's not enough, they let you bring in outside food. Two large patios look out to Todos Santos Plaza in downtown Concord. Also kid-friendly.

Delicious seafood dishes with a beautiful view. They also serve prime rib and brunch (but I personally haven't tried those). The crab is yummy, as is the clam chowder. Nice place to go for a fancier evening out while still not feeling too stuffy. Reservations recommended but not vital; depends on the day.
