Stopped here for lunch and to sample some of the house-made beers. Very good food, service and libations.

Average food. Tahoe prices. Won't let dogs on patio. Have to be on other side of fence. Beer is decent

Some excellent beers and a food selection that was better than expected. We ate and drank there twice in one week. Really enjoyed the barrel aged beer and the Donner Party Porter (chocolatey and a bit sweet).

I docked two stars because the ambiance in here is off. I'm not sure what can be done to fix it, but it feels cavernous and impersonal. More like a dining hall and less like a brew pub. Service is good. The burgers are great. The kid's meals were the standard fare. But, the vibe is so odd that I... More

Wonderful Porter, great service and Delicious onion rings...We really enjoyed this little brewery. The staff was polite and friendly and they were able to answer our questions about the brewery with ease. We also enjoyed some wine tasting. We would def return for another glass of the Donner party Porter!

Good local burger, good service, good beer but the place is very loud. Perhaps some sound proofing material on the ceiling would help

We went there this evening for our granddaughter's birthday. Ordered a bottle of the second most expensive wine. They brought three glasses of wine. Sorry. We wanted the bottle. Waitress then came back and told us they were out of bottle we ordered. Makes one wonder what was in three glasses. Certainly not what we ordered. After several other attempts... More

Hello, First and foremost I would like to apologize for the quality of food during your experience.

In respect to the wine, this is inexcusable and I... More

Similar to many microbreweries with restaurants, the food was mostly above average. My turkey/BLT would be better without the overwhelming garlic flavor of the cilantro mayonnaise, and the bread could be a bit thinner to let the flavor of the sandwich come through a bit better. Also, for a $15 sandwich, the tomatoes should be vine ripened and not the... More

Good micro brewery with good food. In same shopping center as Drunken Monkey. Watched the 49ers on Sunday. There is glare on big screen TV. In general nice atmosphere.

We came a cross Fifty Fifty after realizing one of our favorite restaurants we visit often was closed for remodeling. Fifty Fifty was near our hotel and since we are beer lovers we decided to try it. I'm so glad we did. We sat in the center on the bar at one of the community tables and watched the restaurant... More
