Very good food and service!

I enjoyed our dinner very much. It was nice that there were vegetarian options on the menu to accommodate everyone. The salmon was excellent as was the turkey melt. Our waitress was friendly and the food arrived pretty quick for having 6 in our group. I would definately return.

Now a landmark and locals hangout, the Great Basin Brewery is still the best brew pub in Reno/Sparks. The wraps are great, as are the garlic fries. Other pub fare is better than average and the beers are great! Not fine dining - It's a brew pub; but a great one!

We have a weekly gathering here with friends and family. The specials are always different and delicious. The regular menu has so many choices, it would take you months to try them all. MOST of ALL, the BEER!!!! You cannot beat an Icky or a Red Eye or a Verry Berry. 3 of my favorites. We bring out of towners... More

A short walk from our overnight accommodations, the Great Basin Brewing Company was like an oasis. The 4 of us enjoyed good micro brewed beers (2 vodkas), excellent food, comfortable atmosphere and terrific service (Kalli) after a long day on the road. Don't know if we'll get back to Sparks soon, but if we do, we will return to Great... More

great place to grab a bite to eat (my favorite is the Mouse trap grilled cheese sandwich) and have a tasty beer to wash it down. this place does make their own beer, I recommend the Ichy!

Always a good time! The food varies--sometimes good, other times missing the mark, but the ambience is great, the beers are good, the outdoor parties in the summer are fun, and the live music is great!

We stopped here for lunch and were not disappointed! Excellent food and great beer. My favorite beer was the Katie's Cream Ale, and my husband's was the Outlaw Milk Stout. Service was awesome as well. Give this place a try! Good relaxed atmosphere.

We live close by and come in here once or twice a month. I had never had their chicken pot pie so I thought I would try it. The nice server brought me out a large bowl of soup. It looked and tasted like Campbell's Cream of Celery soup that they had added a few little carrots and a whole... More

We held my nephew's college graduation dinner here as first-time visitors. Our party of 11 people (including 2 toddlers) were seated fairly quickly, especially for a Friday night dinner rush. After reading about the "Icky Ale" I had to try a pint (or three) and it did not disappoint! Our group ordered the deep fried pickles which were REALLY good... More

Great beer and good pub food. Funky and friendly atmosphere. A must try beer is the Icky (Icthasorus).
