Ranked #2 of 32 Restaurants in Susanville
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.

Ended up in this town and checked my phone for a brew house. This came up and review said do not be out off by outside and they were right. It is a very cool old building and the inside decor with original bar and bar back and other things very cool. Our server Jenny very nice and food was... More

Service was very slow and the food was not good at all. In reference to the service, it was a busy night for them. The wait would not have been so bad had the food been good. The fries were very greasy, the sandwiches were not hot and the bread on one was hard and dry and the other was... More

My wife and I stopped by on the way to Reno on the recommendation of other Reviews on tripadvisor, and we weren't disappointed! Friendly wait staff and very good food. We will definitely be swinging by net time we're in the area.

This place is fantastic inside. It is a remodeled bar that is historic and nice. I have driven by this place many times and didn't even know the brewery was there. We had a great lunch and the beer is fantastic. The Eagle Lake Amber is great. Matter of fact it was so good I bought a 5gallon keg to... More

On our way to Reno, Susanville was perfect timing for lunch. We were a little put off when we pulled into a parking space out front, but were pleasantly surprised with the food and especially the service. The Rueben was very good and the sausage sandwich was great. Loved the to-go brownie. Thanks again!

I came here with a friend and wanted to try a sampler of their brews. The stout was very nice. But the $7 half - salad I ordered was small enough to fit into an ashtray although much tastier than an ashtray. In fact it was quite delicious (spinach, caramelized onions, candied walnuts and feta cheese). But I managed to... More

This is a great place to drink beer and eat hearty food. We stopped for one night in Susanville and needed somewhere to eat. We didn't fancy Chinese food so opted for LAW. We were not disappointed. We tried the 12 samples. The beers are very good (if not a little over hoppy) and the food was great. We also... More

I liked Lassen Ale Works a lot. I got their beer taster tray and the sausage meal. The sausage and onions were tasty and the micro-brews were high-quality. The garlic fries were disappointing. (I think it was the first time I have ever disliked garlic fries.) I will definitely be back. Unfortunately, my 18-year-old sister was not able to eat... More

Had dinner and drinks at the Lassen Ale Works on the last night of our road trip. This was our kind of place with good food and cold beer. Much thanks to the staff................

Beautiful woodwork. One wall has the brands of ranches, hundreds of them, see if you can find Bing Crosby's. Friendly staff, food tastes like home made, good value.
