Excellent place

A group of my colleagues and me came here for a dinner meeting and loved the place. The food and the athmosphere was great, service attentive and good variety of food. I am a vegeterian and found the meals I liked here. Very nice place.

Wonderful food and beer. Sierra Nevada has a wonderful restaurant and beer selection. They make all their own beers and ship it worldwide. I love the salad that they have created themselves as well as everything else that I have eaten there. The beer has a selection which is only available in their restaurant. I take my family here often.

Even though Sierra Nevada Beer is sold all over the world, it started here in Chico! This brewery and restaurant is the pride of Chicanos, and well worth the visit! The beer is excellent and the food is delicious.

We're locals, so we've eaten here 30+ times in the past 10 years. I can no longer recommend Sierra Nevada's restaurant. It's average. You won't feel like you wasted your money, but you won't be thrilled either.

Delicious food and healthy choices! Fantastic beers! Patio seating is best for visiting....quieter than inside.

My son and I stopped in for dinner on our way to Redwood NP. It was Friday night and we had a 30 minute wait. It was well worth it. The food was excellent and the service great especially for a crowded Friday night. I would strongly recommend getting the paddle sampler and then make your pint selection. Sierra hits... More

Good menu selections but the proportions are too large. I'd recommend splitting an entree and if you are really hungry, split an appetizer as well. Also, even though it doesn't appear on the menu, ask about kid proportions if you have them along. The beer is one of our favorites.

Love this place! My husband and I make it our night out on Fridays because they have everything! Great food, great people great atmosphere, and GREAT BEER! Sierra Nevada is more than Pale Ale that's for sure! While there, I highly recommend the Sustainability Tour and the gift shop. All around great place to be.

Reasonable prices, delish food, pleasant servers. It was a treat on top of the treat of touring the Sierra Nevada brewery! We started with the pickle jar (yum) and split a hamburger with fries. Both were well prepared and beautifully presented.
