Our son who lives in the area had told us about this great place to eat. From the outside it doesn't look like much.We were able to sit outside on a beautiful day and enjoy our lunch. The server was friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. So glad we came here and experienced where the locals eat. Highly... More

Great place to hang out, especially when the patio is open. Friendly staff, great food (love the nut burger) and some decent beers. It can get overcrowded on weekend nights when the patio isn't open. Still worth the wait to eat though. Also nice to have a beer, or two, and listen to the local music.

We were referred here by the Railroad Pass Resort as the on-site restaurant was closed that day. On arrival, we looked at each other, as the place doesn't look like much, pretty much a diner, and a tired one at that. It was hot, we were hungry so we went in. What a pleasant surprise! The micro-brewery makes great beer... More

Good food. Good prices. Good service. Outdoor seating in a lovely small town. Not a huge place and not particularly glitzy but well worth a visit. Frequented by locals and out-of-towners. Varied menu. Service was polite, friendly, and knowledgable of each offering. The beer was excellent! The Reuben sandwich was delicious. The Ploughmans lunch was terrific. The chicken adobo sandwich... More

Lovely menu, so much to choose from I had a hard time picking. A little too casual on the patio which is on the street....but great food!

Stopped briefly just for one beer and lunch on a road trip to Oregon from California. The servers were very busy because of a street fair that day but were all very friendly. The beer was decent and the vegetarian sandwich the waitress suggested was very good. Cute spot, wish I could have had more of their beers!

Stopped for dinner and found that their IPA beer was excellent. Also had a BBQ sandwich that was tasty. Service was good at 7 PM, and the place was very full on a Wednesday evening. Just as I left (7:30 PM) local musicians were setting up to play, and their calendar indicates that this is a typical evening feature.

We decided to try out the brewery for lunch after hiking. The food was amazing, but also a little $$ (more than I would normally pay). Other than that, the service was moderately fast, people were very friendly and the brews were great. Indoor/outdoor seating, and family friendly. Not a bad place to stop for lunch.

I stopped in late in the afternoon after a day fishing on the Upper Sacramento River. I had the Chicken Adobo sandwich which was so good, i almost ordered a second. The sandwich was served with a fresh green salad with a tasty balsamic vinaigrette dressing. The staff was friendly and welcoming. I look forward to my next chance for... More

Shouldn't even give them one star. My friend and I went to the Dunsmuir Brewery Works because the menu looked good and there was live music. It was definitely a busy night, but that's no excuse for poor service. We couldn't get anyone's attention to put our name on the waiting list for a table. Then we couldn't get anyone's... More
