Great Basin is a local, friendly restaurant/bar. Their food is outstanding from their popular fish and chips to their huge sandwiches and burgers! And, don't forget the beer...they are a microbrewery that has some of the best beer in the area! Staff is very friendly, courteous and attentive even when the place is full!

Pints are $3 during happy hour. Outdoor seating is available. Burgers and sandwiches are good, but the garlic fries are great!

On our recent visit, they had a good band playing on their outdoor stage. The place was crowded, so we put our names in with the hostess, then took a seat on the lawn to watch the band. It didn't take long to get an outdoor table. We enjoyed the music and the setting. In addition to their craft beers,... More

Fish and chips was great. They make their own beer. Stout was fantastic and the IPA Icky was very good. Located neat the Nugget hotel.

I love to support local establishments - Great Basin makes it easy to do so. This is some of the best local beer & pub food around. The beers are award winning & the food will keep you coming back for more. Happy hour (3 - 6 pm. ) means 1/2 price beers + $1 carnita tacos. Which are AWESOME.... More

Well though out menu that compliments the excellent beer selections. Excellent service whether you choose the bar or a table. If it's your first time you will be back.

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
