Went there for lunch recently with a group of 9. Large selection of craft beers, and the wait staff seemed knowledgeable about the beer selection, which is definitely not standard. Although the restaurant was not too crowded on that Saturday afternoon, it was a little noisy, I think mostly because it is a big old brick/cement building that bounces the... More

Again, five stars comes in all shapes and sizes. In this case, great atmosphere, friendly service, nice presentation of food, locally sourced and house-made specialties in the heart of California Gold Country near the gateway to Yosemite National Park. The Standard Pour hit the mark in a variety of ways. Love the ambiance. Wide open and spacious. Beautiful hardwood floors,... More

And old, large converted building ...once the administrative offices of the Pickering Mill. Today it sports a long, beutiful wooden bar and a wide assortment of beers. We did not eat but others were eating hamburgers at the end of the bar in late afternoon. There are tables as well as private rooms for group gatherings. For pleasant service, ask... More

Diamondback in Sonora is a place I would bring anyone to for a wonderful burger or other freshly served beef or fish dinner. So what is up with Standard Pour? After 5 years and 6 visits (3 lunches, 3 dinners) I'm still very disappointed. A lackluster menu and very noisy environment make it difficult to enjoy Standard Pour. I want... More

The Standard Pour is in a old building. This does give it some character, but it was rather empty and echo-ey when we went which made it a little intimidating. The staff were friendly and service was good. Food was standard bar-fare, but tasty. The real reason for going was the selection of beers, which was extensive and the ones... More

C'mon man! I don't see how this great place was rated below top five in Sonora. The only hits I can see are "a little out of the way" and "noisy". We were headed out and back Sonora pass, so the Best Western was the top rated choice for us. That put Standard Pour right in our cross hairs. But,... More

Great selection of beers and always good food with daily specials. Check out Taco Tuedays for $2 tacos. I have never been disappointed here.

This restaurant is out of the way but well worth the effort to get there. It is located in an old lumber mill headquarters building with historic architecture. The food is always well prepared and the service is excellent. This is a good place for partys, meetings and social gatherings as well as individual family dinners. Separate rooms for special...

Everything was excellent!! The only negative is the acoustics. Very loud. But the food and service took care of the noise! We had tri tip sandwiches and they were excellent! We had a shrimp appetizer that is a must try! Excellent. The soup was excellent too

Great draft beer choices - good food - neat old building. Used to be a brewery - lots of rooms for different size groups.
