Great Food

We stopped here for dinner. Our server was an asian woman, very warm greeting from her and very attentive. This place does a huge bar business. Food was great. Only went here once.

The food and service here was great. I had a pizza and it was excellent. The menu had a really good variety of options, but not so much that it was overwhelming. The beer is good, too. Definitely worth a stop.

We had calzones and burgers and they were delicious. The spiral cut fries were incredible. I also sampled the house made raspberry wheat beer and loved it, although it was a little too sweet for others at the table. Excellent restaurant in close proximity to Sunday River!

Went to Sunday River in summer - very quiet at this time. Found this place. Food was good. Burgers cooked well, salads yummy and onion soup was pretty damn good ... we got the flatbread (recommended) and glad it was. I'm sure it's a lot busier in winter, so glad we got to try it in summer ... would go... More

We had a very disappointing meal this evening. A FLY ENDED UP IN MY WIFE'S MOUTH!! A fly like the the ones that were buzzing around us the entire dinner. The Caesar salad was nothing to write home about and the pizza was downright bland with a soft crust. We ordered a beer sampler which came with one of each... More

The Brew Co. was our first stop before heading to the Jordan Hotel. We had a brew beer and a pizza to go. 2 days later were back again for more brew beers and dinner. The lobster roll was overstuffed and not too much mayo or on a typical hot dog roll. Everything was good.

We were just passing through on our way home and had a quick lunch here. Pizza was cheesy thin crust which my daughter liked. The chili was just right and had a nice taste. The burgers and chicken dishes were also fine. Nothing fancy or creative but that was not to be expected. Good spot for a safe & tasty... More

We always have two families of 4 with younger kids and they find a way to fit us in without an issue. The staff is always great as well as the food.

We've tried this place a few times and have given up its overrated with an unimaginative menu and just ok food.
