Great beers, friendly staff, and good food. Across the parking lot from 3 hotels making enjoying a few beers a wonderful option if staying at the hotels. No driving required. Highly recommend a visit.

Crowded restaurant; excellent food! We enjoyed an IPA that was on tap. For lunch we enjoyed fish and chips, chicken cheesesteak, and an Italian club - all very tasty. It's next to Hotel 8 - in an area where you would not expect to find such great food. Our granddaughter found it on Trip Advisor and insisted we keep searching... More

Worth the find! We stopped for lunch on our way to Grants Pass from California. It was a nice surprise how good it was. I had the fish and chips. The fries were excellent, but the fish was just a little greasy. If i were to ever go back in that direction again I would most definitely get the italian... More

right off the river and close to all hotels in the area, a simple, but nice brew pub experience with outdoor patio area.

I don't drink, husband does. I was feeling like I was at a college bar. Lot's of noise and slow waiting for food. I wanted to go out to the garden for some quiet, but it did not appear open. A bar with food is still a bar.

I read the reviews before heading to dinner with my family. I was really braced for it to be worse. Pros: Service. We arrived at about 6pm and were greeted and seated promptly. Server got the drink order out within minutes. Great service throughout. By about 7pm (on a Sunday) the restaurant was full with a 15 minute wait. Beer!... More

After reading the reviews we were hesitant to try the Eel River Brewing Co. Restaurant but it was in walking distance of our hotel so that was the first plus. I went with my wife so asked about beers that she would like and Rich, our waiter recommended the Acai Berry Wheat Beer. She loved it. I ordered the Stout.... More
