“Awsome service and very tasty food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

Paito dinning is always very nice! Salmon special was really moist and topping were very fresh. our waitress seemed lost at times but pulled it off to get a better than average tip.

“Nice traditional brewpub atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

In my opinion the Sparks location is truer to the classical ideal of how a brewpub should look and feel. Makes sense since Great Basin Brewing started in Sparks in 1993. However, their expansion into Reno in 2010 looks as if they are going mainstream after the Applebee's crowd. I'm glad I visited both sites to see the difference in "culture" and I personally think the Sparks location has a better atmosphere. Friendly patrons and great bartenders.

“It's the Icky!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Can't say enough good things about this place! You gotta try the home brew Icky beer and some beer battered fish and chips. Won't do good things for your cholesterol, but it'll make you smile for a while. Never had a bad meal here. Plus, on weekends, they often have live entertainment... either music or comedy. The beer list alone makes it worth the trip.

“Welcoming, with good eats and dancing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

We found like-minded people to talk with here...we visited on a quiet evening in the winter...the food and entertainment were great as well.

“so so service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

went in to have a lunch it was on a weekend that Reno had the balloon races so they got busier than they expected and had short handed the crew for the day and then got swamped. the service took over an hour and a half for service and the service at that rate was hurried and quite rude. I complained and they comped the meal. and gave us a coupon for another that we used a couple weeks later. the lunch we went in for was also quite rude and was so so service they cater to the sports watching people and sling booze rather than take care of the customers there for a meal. we have not been back since. I can buy the beer at the store so dont need to go in to the restaurant any more.
