Certificate of Excellence 2014
Price range: $8 - $12
Cuisines: American
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Reservations, Late Night
Description: 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.

The food at Lassen Ale Works has been consistently good. We've been there 4 times - 3 for lunch and 1 for dinner while travelling through Susanville. The service is generally good, but has been a little inconsistent at lunch. It's a very comfortable place and love that they've kept the historic feel. I would recommend this restaurant.

This is a great room for having a beer and pub food. The veggie (black bean) burger was outstanding, the tap beer selection of regional brews was impressive, and the service was upbeat.

We had fish & chips and plenty of beer. We had 2 beer tokens from our inn keeper, but we stayed on for more. Fish & chips were great & served quickly. We sat in the diner part, which has views of the brewery. Good value meal & drink

This was a Jem after Burney falls on the way to reno. Margaret the owner/manager was so welcoming from the moment we arrived. We ordered fish and chips and lamb burger with a flight of beer. A must! !

Their fish & chips are very good. Their soups are nice, but the portions are small. Their French fries are wonderful, but the portions are smaller than they were a month ago. I recently ordered their calamari. Very little on the plate for $10.99. Most of their food is very good, but overpriced.

Two weeks ago, our group of 12 motorcyclists (the High Plains Drifters) were pushing through the Sierras from Klamath Falls OR to South Lake Taho. Lunch was over-due at the Lassen Ale Works (the Honda Trail in the window told us we'd be welcome). The owner personally came over to welcome us and I can tell you it never gets... More

Clean establishment with good service. We are not beer drinkers so didn't bother with the ale. The food is average pub fare - lots of deep fried items. Pricing is a bit high, but if you are passing through Susanville, it is worth a stop.

It is highly possible that you could walk by this restaurant and bar and never know that it's there. As soon as you go in, you're greeted immediately by staff who are more than willing to find you a place to eat and really enjoy yourself. The beauty of this place is that you could go in with a date... More

Susanville did not have a really good restaurant until Lassen Ale Works opened in the old Pioneer Saloon. They remodeled the old place and as soon as they opened for business, this was THE place in town to eat. The staff is friendly and the food and ale are awesome! We eat here often and it is always the best... More

The beautiful antique bar makes you feel like you are back quite a few years....it has been very well kept up. We went for lunch, then back for dinner. The beers were great and our waiter was so helpful and knowledgable about the beers and the food. We had the ploughman"s platter with homemade sausage for lunch. Plenty for two... More
