First Class all the way

I've enjoyed many meals at Sierra Nevada. the food is always fresh, the menu changes often but the best selections remain, they always include vegetarian items, they use local produce and even use local, brewery mash fed beef. I approve of their "green" practices and attitude. Besides, the food is... read more

Food and service was very good. We ate outside to take advantage of the misters. We ate after we took the 90 minute brewery tour. There was a wait before we were seated for dinner.

There are several items that made my visit less than ideal. Overall, food was okay and the menu was varied to satisfy anyone's palette. I did not try their beer. Here are my issues. Visited on a Monday night and the restaurant was not extremely busy, plenty of open tables and appeared to be plenty of staff on hand but... More

The restaurant and tap room was an amazing time. Great service, great food, great beer. I also took the brewery tour. I would suggest for everyone to do it. It's about 90 minutes long but well worth your time.

Upon arrival and request to be seated outside we were told there would be a ten minute wait. Interesting because there were at least 6 tables open outside. Seated in about five minutes (surprised to see all the open seating - so why the wait?). Server took her time to ask for drink order and then failed to bring what... More

I had the pleasure of visiting Sierra Nevada Brewing Company for a business lunch on a recent trip to Chico. Wonderful food and atmosphere, including a view of the gorgeous copper conditioning tanks. This is a REAL brewery, not just a small IPA beer place. And the menu was fabulous. I had the grilled cheese sandwich and we all enjoyed... More

We have had lunch and dinner many time here. Never had a bad experience, ever. Staff is always friendly and very helpful. Come on in and have a great Chico experience.

The Beer and the Food were great, the only downfall was that the service was slow. Granted it was busy which is why I didn't dock them too hard.

We were familiar with the beer. This is a wonderful restaurant and bar. We missed the tour but there were a lot of windows to look into to see the process. Salads were huge and they accommodated the menu to my daughter's vegetarian requests. There is a wide variety of food on their menu to satisfy everyone. Would definitely return.

Great place, everything from the beer (of course) to the layout. Visited here while in town for work and definitely felt welcome.
