We stopped at Caldera with two couples to have a nice Friday evening dinner. We were surprised at the atmosphere and the digital ordering. It was terrible. We go to dinner to have an experience, not a assembly line cafeteria dinner. The wait staff was...distant and the service was terrible. Our friend ordered a cocktail, never received it and the staff blamed her for the way she ordered it. Instead of remedying the problem they made her feel like she should have not gotten a drink. Covid is an issue, but if you are going to serve like this, rethink why you opened.More

Limited food menu, but the burger was good. Beer is the focus. Only two wines by the glass and a few by the bottle. Service was impersonal and ordering was DIY. You have to order via smartphone, give them your email and enter a credit...card number. At least they do bring your food and don’t expect you to bus your own table. Given the minimal service I was slightly offended by the software’s default 18% tip. (It can be changed. )More

They are going through the process of trying to be open and in business with limited staff with limited abilities. I suggest that you bypass this business until things settle down and they know what they are doing. You have to order on your phone,...set up an account and navigate a confusing application to get service. After fussing and cussing through the convoluted app, I ended up ordering double beer orders, then my hub ordered his meal on his phone before I was ready ending the possibility that we'd get our meals together. I was put into such of horrible mood with this process - nothing looked good on the menu by then. We decided to just drink our beers and go elsewhere. But NO! The pasta dish arrived at the table! And LOOK! They forgot to prepare the entree with the promised bacon. A minute or two LATER, the bacon is brought to the table on a plate (obviously cooked as an afterthought). I guess we were suppose to crumble it up and stir it into the pasta to recreate the original dish. NO. Sorry. They politely took it off the bill, and we paid via the app and left. I did zero out the tip amount. Forget this nonsense. Plenty of other places to go get good beer and a bite without this aggravation.More

We were on our way to Bandon Dunes from LA and stopped overnight in Ashland…The Calddra was just up the street from our hotel. The food and beer were excellent…fairly priced and tasty. Eve was ver helpful as we navigated the online ordering. Great spot!

Either because of staff shortages or covid changes or just trying to be too hip, Caldera requires you to use your phone to get into their system to place an order. This requires setting up an account, adding your credit card, noting your table number,...and trying to navigate the numerous menu hyperlinks to select your entrees and options. After you do this, which takes much longer than simply ordering from a server, someone just brings you your order when it’s ready and you bus your own table when you’re done. So they’ve conscripted their customers to be part of their unpaid labor force to make their system more efficient for them – more cafeteria than restaurant - and then they have the nerve to default a 20% tip you pay while ordering and before being served! Fortunately, you can override the default tip. We work in technology, so that part was just an annoyance rather than a hindrance. However, we noticed several older parties having trouble with the system. The food was OK and the beer was good, but we likely won't be returning. The hostess was good – pleasant and efficient.More

Terrible experience at Caldera on Fathers Day. We went to be with family and we’re told we had to order online after we were seated. Everyone had to open an account, set up a password and do our ordering online which took time away from...our enjoyment of being together. When we finally got our order I was given red wine instead of the rose I ordered. My sisters salad dressing was so sour she could eat her salad. They used lilikoi dressing without any sweetner in it. I would not recommend this restaurant for either it’s service or it’s food.More

I'm so over the QR code for ordering food and drinks. It's frustrating! Scan the code, pass the phone to each member to place their order. It takes so much longer to do. Than the waiters/waitress come over and ask if they can help and...I'm thinking why can't you just take my order if your coming to my table to ask and than later to deliver my food. I just don't understand. So than it takes awhile for my kids to decide and we are sitting there with no water and I really wanted a beer flight to enjoy while everyone was deciding on food choices but nope, couldn't order that. The hostess sat another couple and they literally stayed there for 20 minutes helping them figure out how to order. In that amount of time, food and drinks could have been delivered. The restaurant itself was a fun atmosphere with their decor. Outdoor seating was amazing. Beer was very good. Loved the Toasted Coconut. The black bean burger was good.More

The food, service, and brew at Caldera was excellent. Be sure to try the coconut prawns as they were delicious and the Rogue River salad was incredible. We enjoyed a nice table outside with our dog and our waitress was quick to get us whatever...we needed. We will now stop here every time we go through Ashland!More

We always like to start with the coconut prawns....yum! Our daughter loves the mahi mahi tacos...double yum!! Husband almost always goes for the White Truffle Burger... triple yum!!! Through the virus times, they are great about social distancing & the weather has been beautiful to...sit outside! Inside is fun with beer bottles from all over the world on the walls up to the sky!!! A great place that we enjoy taking visitors to.More

I have been out on the patio area and people have had dogs. The area with the picnic tables for sure.

Sorry. Don’t know the answer to that. Contact the brewery on line. I’m sure they’ll help you out.
