Lassen Ale Works at the Pioneer Saloon in Uptown Susanville is Northeastern California's only brewpub. We are a 21 and over only establishment. The historic Pioneer Mercantile building we occupy has been home to a saloon for 150 years--look for the large vintage neon Pioneer sign on the south side of Main Street. We offer a small but eclectic menu of house-made dishes including fish and chips, lamb stew, hamburgers and fresh salads. Our ales are made on site and include light and dark ales from the pale, crisp Bizz Johnson Blonde to the rip snorting Pioneer Porter. We also have a full bar, specialty cocktails, a wine by the glass and a selection of single malt scotch. Take a seat at our 36-foot-long bar and admire the wall of local ranch brands above the bar back or go into the back room to watch the brewer at work and play pool beneath the historic mural that celebrates the logging and ranching roots of Susanville.

I ordered an apple cider and fish tacos and these were terrific. They're also known for their fish and chips. This place was super busy recently on Father's Day and had a festive familiar atmosphere. The greeter seemed to know half of the patrons as they came in the door. It's located in the "old part" of town, pretty neat.

This saloon has a nice atmosphere for such a small town. The bar and beer are very good. The seafood pasta dish I had was extremely fresh, however the sauce had very little flavor.

LAW has become my favorite restaurant and watering hole while working in Susanville. They have the best food in town, hands down, and the beer is DELICIOUS! Be sure to try their daily dinner special, or my favorite, the fish tacos. All beers are made in house and they have a style for every palate. I enjoy the Pioneer Porter... More

When in Susanville, I must have Pioneer's homemade tartar sauce! It's the very best I've ever had. Fortunately, their hand-battered fish and chips that come with the tartar sauce are equally delicious. What a great meal. Every time.

We arrived late into Susanville and this was one of the only places open past 9 p.m. To our surprise and delight, it's got a cool microbrewery / pub / sports bar feel, with lots of wood and high ceilings. The food was solid (not bad / not great), except the fries, they're delicious. I'd eat here again.

This place was recommended by a local, and let me tell you, it was FANTASTIC! The food was absolutely perfect. I had a wonderful Panini and a fig salad for lunch. Even my ice tea was perfect. Will be back EVERYTIME I go for business!

Took forever to get our food ordered, once ordered it took another 15 minutes to get out drinks, my husband and I had iced tea, which the ran out of and couldn't brew any more of...come on, I have...

We were here a couple of years ago and really enjoyed the food and beer. We came in tonight and had their fish tacos and their IPA. Delicious! Laci was a great waitress. Their beers are only $3.50! Will definitely return!

Loved this place! Great service, wonderful food & brewery. It's all about the Monte Cristo sandwich and the Triple Ale! The half portion of the spinach salad with fresh figs and goat cheese was delicious. We enjoyed sharing the beer taster sample set as well. I really enjoyed the high ceilings and skylights and all the beer decor. If we... More
