My wife and I discovered and ate at Dunsmuir Brewery Works quite serendipitously. We had intended just to grab some burgers either at The Burger Barn or at Micki's Better Burger, both highly recommended on Yelp. Micki's looked awful, so we were going to try the very interesting looking Yaks down the road from it, which is very highly rated... More

Ate on the patio...great selection and food for such a small town. Pulled pork was delicious. Nice breezy evening, very informal. Relaxing atmosphere...tasty food.

I thought the food (Mahi Mahi street Tacos) were amazing, the Beer and atmosphere were nice and comfortable. The house brewed root beer was a hit with the kids. The Beer was fantastic, the service was a little slow but worth the wait. We will definitely be stopping in again on our next trip through.

I've come for lunch several times and never been disappointed. The first time I went expecting typical bar food---beer, burgers, fries and not a lot else. I was pleasantly surprised to find good variety on their menu--including several vegetarian options. The ahi tuna melt special is excellent. My veggie sister gives their homemade nutburger and broccoli slaw top marks. Service... More

Staying in Dunsmuir for one night on road trip, would never have expected such a great place for drinks and food. Beer: The brewery's beer is excellent. Fresh, tasty and right up there with other California craft brews. Food: The menu surprised me. I couldn't make up my mind. It's got a gastropub feel to it. I settled on the... More

This brewery/restaurant is a nice place for a beer and lunch. The beer is nice and the food very good. The service could be a little more professional and a little less "cool". Very lax management. There was a local cell phone talker in the patio area that forced us to go indoors... Super rude ! They served the appetizer... More

Our group of 6 had dinner here on our first night in town. The place was busy, we sat outside and while the local flies were a bit of a hassle, the food, especially my steak, was great. It was a warm night so outside seating was very pleasant. A great place for good, honest food served in a friendly... More

This small town brewery has the friendliest staff, great food and a great selection of microbrews! There is inside or outside seating - nothing fancy. But if you want the fun of a local brewery and friendly people, then this is the place for you! They also have live entertainment - mostly on week-ends.

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.
