Located on the historic square. Had some of the best clam chowder - better than anything that I've found in New England (from CT). Also they brew their own beer - not a beer drinker but my husband said it was great; however, he is really disappointed that he didn't buy one of their t-shirts. They were closed for the... More

We only went for beers so far but they were fantastic! Really good authentic craft beers. Loved the IPA and the stout. Will be going back for more!

We have visited 1697 a couple of times when passing through Loreto. The staff is always friendly and the owner a very nice guy. He took us back to show us his brewing process. Good pizza too. They always make sure our dog, Aspen, gets a bowl of water and it's great people watching. We had meant to bring our... More

We ate here enough to try almost everything on the menu. Mario does a great job with service. We had great clams, soups, salads, pastas. My husband had the arachara tacos and loved them. Great guacamole. And the beer! So nice to get a great microbrew.

A person can only drink so many Pacifico's, Corona's and XX-Ambers. Am I right? So, my husband and I were tickled to discover El Zopilote Brewing Company's IPA. With a name like Kieran Raftery, you have to figure this Brew Master knows his way around a keg and a hop Rhizome. (And you'd be right.) El Zopilote is available at... More

We ate here the other day and had some great food and great service. They remodeled a bit and it looks much bigger and nicer now. We had a chile relleno and it was excellent, stuffed with beef. It was different than some but it was very good We also had a fish plate and it was very good! We... More

Well, being from Portland Oregon I am a bit of a beer snob. Light Mexican beers aren't very attractive to me. But at 1697 Zapilote's brewing does a find job with their Rattlesnake IPA. My wife and I had dinner there and I had the best chile relleno I have ever had. Nice light battered chile with very tasty filling.... More

Several traditional Mexican dishes together with brewery beer choices. Full-service bar + a great sangria. Caring, attentive staff.

There are many choices around the Plaza in Loreto, but I am glad we chose this one, not only for its significant name ( the town was established in 1697)but also for the unusual furniture, setting under the sprawling trees, and the warm welcome we received. The staff spoke very good English and helped explain some of the dishes on... More
