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.

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!
