Saying goodbye to a friend who is moving back east was made so much more special wiith the wonderful food experience at Chama River Brewing Company. We helped ourselves to the rib appetizer which became a meal and then some for each of us! And also had the green chili cream soup which was dreamy. And BTW, while eating we... More

The beer is excellent. Try the Lupulos Lager for a great IPL. The Cherry Sour is good, not too funky. There were two more IPAs, and plenty of malty options. Highly recommended.

I haven't been to Chama River in years. The beers are still fresh and clean. The Caesar salad was fresh and tasty. The chicken skewers were perfectly done, although the "spicy" peanut sauce was not spicy at all. My husband loved the duck legs. Service was incredibly slow... The bread guy mumbled and seemed to hate his job. He offered... More

Good meal but just not my kind of ambiance. Went with some friends at their suggestion. Great for a sports bar atmosphere but not what I like. The food was quite good and we had good service.

We visited first time for lunch. Had Caesar salad which was good, the kobe beef burger which we ordered medium rare and it came well done and finally onion rings which were too brown and too hard crunch. I'm giving them a 3 because the server Jason was great and credited half off the burger. Will we go back.....probably not.

We had a delicious lunch today - fish tacos for me, prime rib sandwich for my companion - served by a very good waitress who was knowledgeable about the local brews. Even brought small tasting glasses of beers to help us decide. Nicely decorated - not your average "sports bar" kind of place. This was my first visit and I'd... More

Had dinner with a friend, service was ok. I had the prime rib, which was slightly overlooked, I asked for medium rare, but it was ok otherwise. The green chile roll was good, but not as good as I remember it from previous visits several years ago. A little overpriced.

I really wanted to like this breweries offerings but was somewhat disappointed. Call me a beer snob but it was not my favorite. The bar tender and waitress couldn't tell the difference between a Hefe and an imperial IPA, seriously. My wife order the Hefe and they brought her the yup, Imperial IPA. We had it corrected but yow they... More
