I expected a normal brewery meal but was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. The pretzels with beer cheese is a must. The Baja slaw is great. The beers are good and all prices are reasonable. Service was friendly and very efficient.

The Tap Room is one of the best things about our son choosing to go to Chico State. This place is fantastic, from the friendly hostess desk and beer cheese pretzel appetizer to the great service and terrific entrees. If any of us liked beer, I'm sure that would be great, too. Fair prices make this our favorite restaurant in... More

My first taste of Sierra Nevada beer was more than 30 years ago when a couple local boys shared a keg from their garage with a group of us at the Nevada City Bike races. Since then, the brewery has grown and grown and its beer is now celebrated around the world. The brewery features the Sierra Nevada Tap Room... More

If you are a fan of a good brew, occasionally or several a day, you need to stop at Sierra-Nevada. The restaurant is great, good food, good choices that can fit all members of your family or group. You can order a sampler of several different beers to give them a try or if you know what you want --... More

I've had some of the best meals at Sierra Nevada. The only sad thing is that they'll have a wonderful special and then the next time I get the chance to go, that same wonderful meal won't be available. So I'll try another, love it, and repeat that same cycle. Then again it's given me the opportunity to try many... More
