Besides Bidwell park, you must visit Sierra Nevade Brewery. Besides the food, the tour is incredible. You will thank me...I guarantee it!

The free tour is great. Very informative and you get to sample the beer at the end of the tour. The restaurant is loud, but the service is pretty good and so is their food. All locally grown. They are also a very "green" restaurant and brewery.

Very good menu. The beer is always high quality and varied. If one doesn't strike your fancy, try another. In my opinion, the drafts are much better. The only downside is that the acoustics in the dining room are horrible. The outdoor dining is much quieter if weather permits.

Great beer tour with a great lunch ending. The beer tour was very informative a lot better than in the past. They have upgraded the tour and added cool elements like the smelling, tasting and feeling of the hops. Go during the week to see the manufacturing/bottle filling line in progress, weekends is shut down. Ended with a good sampling... More

This is your average event place. The special change often and the food is good but not spectacular. The main draw here us the beer as this is a brewery. They are experts at beer!

This is a great big comfortable pub restaurant with something for everyone. The service is friendly and efficient and the food is good. Perfect for getting together with a large crowd or for a quick business lunch.

This is my go to place for a great lunch in Chico. Fun place to take visiting friends. You can order a sampler and share tastes to decide what to order for the meal. First off it is a very echo-filled room, so not a good place for a person with hearing issues. Though, if it is nice weather, the... More

Most non-locals (like me) probably know Sierra Nevada Brewing Company for some of their more popular beers - Pale Ale, Torpedo IPA, Porter, etc. and seek out the brewery in Chico for this reason. The great part about visiting Sierra Nevada is not only can you try the beers you know and a number of special seasonal offerings but they... More
