We ate twice this week for dinner and both times thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The food was very good and they seem to use a lot of natural and organic ingredients. Even the children's menu had food that the kids love, but that was also made with great ingredients. I had the cheesesteak and it was great. The beer is... More

We came here for lunch on a beautiful spring day and sat outside. We were the only table, so our server was very attentive. I ordered the ½ lb BBQ burger, which was very satisfying. My wife ordered the asian chicken salad, which was quite generous and tasty. Halfway through our meal a couple of guys sat at the table... More

This was going to be a stop for a sampler and maybe a pint. We found the beers to be most excellent, and stayed for 5 pints! Our favs were the Farmhouse, de Prick and the Brown. Porter was also very good. Had the fried zucchini appetizer and it was quite enjoyable also. We plan to come back soon! We... More

Stopped in here one night while staying in Truckee, liked it so much we came back the next night. Good sized restaurant/bar/brewery. Looks to be a pretty new building. They also have an outdoor seating area. The bar is not all that large but it does have some high-top tables behind it. It’s located about a mile or two outside... More

Not a beer drinker, they have a nice wine selection. My husband loved his beer. I had the green chile stew and it was excellent. Our server did a great job. Certainly a place we will visit again.

We arrived for dinner and a few beers. Server was.. melancholy?? He seemed bored. When we asked for food recommendations he shrugged his shoulders and we had to ask if they had beer tasters. Porter and belgian were outstanding, fish and chips not so much. Go for the beer- eat someplace else.

A friend and I stopped by here to catch a World Cup game and have some beers. The atmosphere was relaxing, the servers were friendly and offered great menu advice, and the food went above and beyond the typical bar food quality. We had a the green pork shoulder stew and garlic fries-delicious! They have beer samplers too, which is... More

Stopped for happy hour and selected a lightly hopped beer. Nice choice for outside enjoyment. Took out Hawaiian style pizza. Crisp crust, good balance between sauce and cheese, light on pineapple with adequate Canadian bacon. All in all, good value.

Our waiter was rude and indifferent. Good food but just so irritated by the horrible service. It took more than ten minutes for anyone to check on us and the waiter and hostess seemed to be bothered by our party of five. Went there for a friends 50th birthday and the staff just didn't care. Hey were more interested in... More

My spouse and I asked our hotel for the best place for dinner at a reasonable price in Truckee. We were directed to 50/50. It was sooooooo good we had dinner there twice. We would come back again if the opportunity presents itself. Its a local favorite judging by its clientele.
