A friend and I came back from Sugarloaf about a week ago and decided to stop by for some pizza. For the quality and size the prices aren't that great. And our server wasn't around much, which is surprising seeing as the dining area wasn't that packed or that large. When we ordered the pizza we... read more

Went for dinner last night. Ski season is over so not jammed with people, but still surprised at how many were there. Service was good, but main complain was the food. We had claim chowder with bacon in it. $7.00. Not again. The best art was the soup was HIT, but really couldn't taste the clams, nor really the bacon.... More

After reading all the so-so reviews we went here as skeptics wanting to check it out. We were pleasantly surprised. Perhaps it was the day - apres ski, 60 degree afternoon, sat on the deck by the fire, live music, and shared a taster flight and flat bread. The beers all seemed very similar in taste and not the most... More

The dining room has always been uncomfortable and awkward. This hasn't changed so make sure you sit in the bar (without kids for the benefit of others - personal preference). We've been 3 times this winter as I am not a fan of Roosters. Highlights: Greek salad was amazing each time... Lobster roll great. Saturday night music - great collection... More

We decided to try this Brew house again after the first time was very disappointing. The new sign stated now serving our own beer so we ordered four out of there choices. When the beer was served two of the four were flat. We told our server to which he stated that they were having trouble with those taps. He... More

Always great to go to a brewery with a restaurant and get a good meal. Lots of tables but does get really busy

Sunday RIver Brewing Company offers great foods and a nice selection of craft beers. A great place to stop after a hard day on the slopes with no crowds during midweek week. The back dinning area can accommodate larger parties. A pool table and many flat screens make for a very nice location for a nice relaxing after slopes get... More

Our party of 9 felt super uncomfortable during our dinner at the Sunday River Brewing Company. I'm not sure if it was the lack of music (not even background tunes), our awkward waitress, or the weird dining room layout (way too lofty and cold.) The food was mediocre and way overpriced. Don't bother with the nachos— with the added $1... More

I decided to stop off on the way to the condo to see how things were going under the new owners. I sat at the bar and was immediately approached by a friendly and attentive bartender. That was not the case with my last visit. He continued that way my entire stay. I had a specialty hamburger and fries .... More

At the end of a ski day, my family just likes to eat in the room, so I went out to the Sunday River Brewing Company to have a beer and bring back take-out. The beer was fantastic. I liked their stout so much that I didn't even venture to the others on the menu. On different nights we ordered... More
