Good food and service, breathtaking view of mountains

Hummus and black bean burger were quite tasty, and the service was excellent. We ate outside, and the view of the mountains was breathtaking! Craig Herberg

I can say without a doubt that this brewery should be known for their pizza not is without a doubt some of the best in Virginia. Stop by, have a pie and a cold beer.

This place is GREAT. After a weekend of hiking, we were craving burgers and brews, and this place was PERFECT. It is 8 minutes away from the south entrance to Shenandoah National Park (right off of I-64.) Not only was it close by and delicious, the atmosphere was great. Lots of outdoor seating, a great view, live music... overall super... More

Our first visit to Blue Mountain Brewery. We ate outside on the patio at a table with an umbrella for shade. They also had a section of the patio that was covered and had ceiling fans. We enjoyed sampling their beer selections! The pizza we ordered was tasty! They make it with a thin, crisp crust. Someone else in our... More

You're drinking local brews, served by a knowledgeable staff in the midst of scenery worthy of a postcard. And the food happens to be pretty darn good too. I'm not sure what else you could possibly want out of a trip to a brewery. This one is a "must go" if you are in the area. Like now.

We ate outside on the nice patio and had good service and good beer. The pizza was delicious, but the crab dip and edamame were both oddly prepared (spiced). They weren't bad, but not great. Stick with the beer and pizza. The hops growing around the outside eating area were a nice touch.

We love taking a drive here on a pretty day. Beautiful view of the mountains. We've been in summer and winter and it's definitely easier to get a table in the summer because of all the outside seating. The beer is great, and we really love the pizza, which costs about $20, but it's pretty big and can easily feed... More

Went to taste some beer and get lunch with friends. The pizza, bratwurst, apple and onion with balsamic was great. The beer was disappointing. Not a lager I coul get into. My friends were disappointed with the IPA's they tried, but worst of all was the level of service. We were shuttled back and forth between 3 Waite staff

Returned to the brewery/restaurant after taking a day to relax with friends and visit some of the wineries on the 151 trail. Had the burger, fabulous and others had the veg bean burger and pizza (very large) ... everything was great ... it is a fun atmosphere and eat either inside or out.

I went here on a Sunday evening for a group get together. They have both indoor and outdoor seating, with the outdoor seating having amazing views of the mountains! They can accommodate a pretty large group - we had 12 people. The food menu was great and had something for everyone. The black bean burger was delicious and left me... More
