Very Lively, Must-Visit When in Chico

My wife and I had lunch while visiting Chico to look around for housing. Someone told us it was a must see while in Chico...and they were right! People from all over the country visiting for a tour, a tasting and for lunch. We were seated quickly even though people were lining up at the door (we... read more

This is a big, loud restaurant with a full brewery and a nice bar. The menu is bistro and the food was high quality. You gotta try the pretzels and beer cheese. Very unique.

Both of the tours are definitely worth going on. I was very impressed that there is very little waste in the brewing process. Also our tour guide on the tour of the brewery did a very good job. Getting to taste a number of beers and learning how to taste the different ones was very interesting. The food at the... More

Brought my boyfriend here for his Bday and he loved it. Food, beer and atmosphere was great. Our waitress Audrey was superb. Will be coming back!

The food is good at the brewery though it's loud inside when it's crowded. Hard to hear one another. Outside tables are awesome when it's warm and they are available.

Had dinner here when visiting my son at Chico State. Appetizer: pretzel and cheese- great! We ordered a beer sampler. Great way to test different beers. I ordered a 1/2 pint of the one I liked best. Dinner: pork chop dinner - the best!! Chicken - very good but son liked my pork chop dinner better. Looking at other dishes... More

Nice place...great beer selection...one of the best in town...it was a very busy night and it took 35 minutes to get a table. Food was a bit on the slow side but they were hammered as it was graduation night. considering that, Im felt pretty good about this place.

I was part of a business group that ate lunch at this restaurant. While the atmosphere is very nice, excellent service, and a decent menu selection. The taste of the food was decent but it would be difficult to say it was equal the the entree prices. This would be a nice place to eat on a pleasant summer evening.

I totally recommend the pizzas! i shared one with a salad (also very good). Portions are satisfying and the service was great, even though they were packed (so consider making a reservation). The bread and dipping oil/balsamic is great, and local. Chico has great balsalmics and oils (and honey and almonds etc etc). Good value for money too

This is an absolutely must-stop location. Would stop here even if it took me an hour out of the way. Fabulous food, better beer and great atmosphere and employees. The people who rated this below very good should be ignored. This place is top notch. Cannot believe it sits at #3, I would rate it in top 3 in all... More
