We stopped off here for the Championship games. I think it might be under new ownership now, because the menu was a lot different. Everything we got there was great, and the buffalo wings were probably the best I ever had (maybe 5 hours of driving through ice made me a little extra hungry!).

The only good thing about this place was the musician. He was placed in a corner and sang the length of our dinner, without a break. He had an excellent repetoire of songs. The food was burgers and fried everything. The salad was almost inedible. The service was poor despite there being a ton of waiters. Everything was served at... More

Greek Salad and lobster roll excellent. New owners seem to be doing a nice job. Have gone twice and each time it was clean, food was good and service better than expected. Menu may seem limited but quality is worth it. i am thrilled with this experience considering they also own the Black Diamond which is a bit disappointing.

Everything was just okay here. The food was average and service fine but I would not rush back here again as there are much better places around the mountain resort to eat at.

After a day of skiing at Sunday River we popped into the Brewing Company, which is very conveniently located for us driving back to our accommodations. The atmosphere is open and quasi-modern including fireplaces and a large viewing area of the brewing process, and sodas and water are served in mason jars. My three teens and I enjoyed nachos, burgers,... More

We had a great time here last weekend. They are one of the few places who serve food late. My fried mozzarella was tasty and my husband live his wings. The bartender we friendly and the drinks were great. I will be back!

Currently under new management, but it's a nice restaurant with good value and quality food. I had the lobster roll and thought it was worth the 14$!! Not too sure about their micro brewery because we never tried their house beer. My son complained about the Mac and Cheese being small, but what do you expect for 6$...it was fine... More

The lobster roll was really good and the nochos were great. I look forward to trying more. They are now owned by the folks that have the Black Diamond. Once their permits are in order I want more Sunday River Alt

In regards to the previous poster, the brew pub has-was closed since mid October and re opened under new owners and a huge make over. IMO it should now be judged from this date onward. I have no financial interest in this post.
