2 happy hours with house beer made by firestone walker brewery .... one of the best ipa's @ a happy hour price. good messy cheeseburgers -- tuna fish sandwich with chips & cold beer -- what could be better. i notice that restaurant is having some great guest craft beers without breaking the bank!

This establishment will serve you a canned beer, slam a warm glass on your table, and walk away. Don't ask for a chilled glass. It will totally piss off both of the bartenders. I gave them a several chances and came back about 4 more times. Not enjoyable. My friends were so offended by the rudeness of the staff that they asked me if they could leave. How could I blame them? When I asked the server if he was aware that he was acting aggressive and he acted like I spoke a foreign language...like a child who does not understand big words. It was the most bazaar interaction...aside of the situation of being a customer...that I was sure that they are not concerned if you don't like the service. It's not just that they are rude but simply stupid people over 30 stuck in a job they hate. Also, if you ask for a manager, the person you are speaking to will claim to be the manager. Every time. It's like a rule they have. Minimum wage high school drop outs who need free beer I am guessing. DO NOT EVER GO TO THIS BREWERY unless you are ready to treat them like scumbags. That is what they expect anyway. Sad.

It is really really bad that the OWNER of this restaurant (little Tokyo) has a drinking and temper problems...and he is in the service business? The owner was really upset about the messiness at the men's restroom as my friend stepped in so he started shouting at him because he thought he could. A few minutes later i saw the owner came to our table DRUNK with 3 security guys to kick my friend out with "F#@K YOU!" out loud from his mouth...DON'T EVER GO TO WEILAND if you are thinking to make visit there!

happy hour was good!! i had some friends who suggested weilands in little toyko. so we went after work. like a pre- bacholorette party with friends/co-workers from work. i never been so i am up for anything that is delicious and cheap. i was kinda turned off by paying for parking $6 but i guess they gotta get you somehow. heh. anyway we got seated right away but i hear it can get pretty busy. our waitress was extremely nice but service was slow which she came back to apologize for. myself i had a keylime martini and some tropical drink. the tropical drink was way better than the keylime martini. we ordered some garlic fries which were delicious sooo good that we had 3 orders heeh, and some calarmi, which were ok. well my 2 friends drank at least 7 drinks and then took it to the karoake bar across the street and then drank somemore at the end of the nite one of my friend's regurgetated the garlic fries ALL up on the side of her car but then FUN TIMES HAD BY ALL HEHE

Pros: the drinks and food

Cons: paying for parking/slow service/ small portions

This place was terrible. The manager was getting drunk the whole time, and decided to pick a fight with my friend because she decided she didn't want the crab cakes (they were the size of mini bagels). He yelled at her, yelled at us, and caused a scene in front of everyone. Even though we asked him to calm down he still blew up, and she was afraid he might even hit her. The security guard told us to just leave to bypass more angry outbursts from him. You can take your chances there, but I don't recommend it at all. We're telling ALL our friends to boycott it. I'll never step foot in that place again. She almost pressed charges against him for harassment.

This place is such a good spot for Happy Hour. They have the best garlic fries. If you try them once you will be hooked. The atmosphere is great you can't go wrong.

Went to this place on a Friday around 5:30pm to check out their happy hour. Nice! It was crowded and we got the 2nd to last table in the restaurant area because the bar area was packed. The crowd was court/city/county employee-like, so a semi professional mostly younger crowd. House beer is the only thing discounted, no happy hour prices on anything else, but they have 4 different house beers for $2.50 a pop which wasn't too bad. Appetizers, garlic fries and onion rings were not overly impressive but were not too expensive and the burger my friend ordered was alright. Didn't really check out any other food, but the menu prices weren't bad, topping out at like 15 to 18 bucks for a steak. Lots of people watching to do and the crowd seemed ready to mingle. Definitely recommend this for an early happy hour. It's actually good to see people out boozing it up early!

Pros: Good crowd. Cheap Beer. Full Bar. Inexpensive Food. Nice Happy Hour.

Cons: If you can't find free parking, you're impatient or unlucky, or both.

great little place. have had friends telling me about it for some time. finally went and close enough to Happy Hour to really make the most out of it. shame they charge $6 for parking, but it is in Downtown, and thats the norm down there.

The best hangout place ever! My friends and I would go there every Monday for their late-nite happy hour. The waiters and bartender were great to talk to, their beers were great, the appetizers tasty (loved the garlic fries and chicken quesadilla), and their martinis were yummy (canteloupe was my personal favorite). At first I thought the place was only good for beer and appetizers, but when I tried their entrees (I've had their burger, halibut, spinach salad, etc), OH MY GOD! They were pretty darn tasty. I admit the food did take a little long sometimes, but a nice glass of their hef will fill that void nicely. And you can't blame them... I've only seen two people working the whole kitchen for a huge crowd that has been drawn in by their $2 beers. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to go for quite some time now, but I sure hope it is still the same when I go again.

I visit LA about once a month--every visit this year I think we've made it to Weiland...love the garlic fries, love the different art on the wall, really like the atmosphere!

What's going on with this place?? I'd eaten at WBR before and the food had been pretty good, so I took some coworkers there for lunch a few weeks ago. We told the waiter that we had to be out in about 55 minutes and ordered some burgers and a seared ahi sandwich. After waiting about 40 minutes, we noticed that patrons that had sat down after us were getting their food. When we inquired as to the status of our order, the manager rudely responded that "food takes different times to cook" (even though the orders coming out were similar "burger" dishes) but said he would check for us. It quickly became apparent that our order had been lost (waiters were called over, people looked stressed). Instead of letting us know, we were ignored by the manager while the kitchen presumably scrambled to get us our food. When we got our food finally, we had less than 10 minutes to eat. At this point, the manager whined to us that the kitchen was "mad" at him for the situation (don't know whether this was supposed to make us feel better). There was NO apology, the "lightly seared" ahi was BURNT BLACK on one side and cooked through. No comp of any sort to redeem the pathetic situation. We ate (we were starving at that point) and quickly left. The burgers and garlic fries were decent taste-wise, but we obviously left with a bad taste in our mouths. When a LA restaurant messes up royally and are super-rude on top of that, there's no excuse... I advise that you take your business somewhere else.

My friends and I eat at the downtown location. We found a living and moving green creature in our lunch salad. We were horrified. It was large, like a mix between a moth or grasshopper. The manager didn't charge us for the food and we left immediately, so we can't comment on taste. We were however disgusted when our waiter said "no need to pay, but please tip."

Pros: cheap beer and apps during happy hour

Cons: I guess everyone else knows about this hotspot...friday night gets busy...food and drinks take a little longer than normal. I just orderded two beers at once :)

.

I really enjoy going to this place because it's close everything in LA. You have Lil' Tokyo, LA Mall, MOCA, The Pantry.. it's basically within walking distance. So if you just want to relax and have a drink, this is a neat spot. Martini's are subtly strong, yum! Recommended: Side Car Martini. The appetizers are fun to share and quite inexpensive - highly recommended: Garlic Fries.
The atmosphere is mellow. The have a juke box with a variety of tunes. The decor is filled with art to appeal to your eyes.

PROS: Conveniently Located, Happy Hour Appetizers, Martini's
CONS: Kinda small, gets crowded on weekends

I love going to this place, especially after work. We only work 3 blocks away, so this place makes a great place for us to kick back, relax and just hang out, especially after a rough day/night at work!! People are friendly, prices are good. Happy Hour food are real cheap and good. I made lots of great friends there!! Thanks Weiland

This is by far the worst dinner Ive ever paid for. I was disgusted by the half frozen ahi tuna steak. There's a slight chance I will revisit for their cheap drinks some day but not in the near future. its going to take a while before I can get rid of the bad taste in my mouth and the memory of this dinner.

This is a great bar in DownTown LA...The 2 happy hours are great...the food and and drinks are cheap. The jukebox has great music, the crowd is cool...and it's right in the middle of a parking lot, so parking is never a problem.

I went to Weilands after a recommendation from a friend. Cheap drinks but the food was horrible. Garlic fries came out cold, chicken quesedilla and chicken wings were disgusting. I've been to numerous other restaurants for happy hour where there was good drinks AND food. I definitely won't ever be going back to Weilands.
