Good food, local beer offerings, tasting flights for beer. Has inside and outside seating. Service was prompt and friendly. Very local atmosphere and would go back again.

We ate lunch here today. Traveling through, so no beer. But the menu has some interesting items, and the sandwiches we had were really good. But sit outside - inside has a lot of flies!

I wanted to avoid eating at some fast food place just off the interstate, so drove into town and strolled around, having a look at the Amtrak station. I decided this place looked like a good bet for lunch and indeed it was. I sat outside in the shade of an arbor and did not try their beer, feeling like... More

Was passing through and the sign caught my eye. Worth stopping for the elk burger. Also tried the Pusher pale ale. If I had a cooler I would have bought a growler to take with me. Great staff, and the whole town is remarkably friendly.

We were visiting from Portland, Oregon, and our beer snobs. The brew here is second-to-none, truly excellent. The food is very high quality common, certainly better than normal pub fare. We will most definitely be back to this place!

This brewery/restaurant is an old gas station converted into a restaurant. We sat outside so not sure what the inside looks like. The food is more than fabulous; the wait staff was very friendly; the atmosphere was relaxing. Oh and the beers are great! We had the elk burger, which you never see on a menu, and it was outstanding.... More

A girlfriend and I were staying at the Railroad Park Resort and came into Dunsmuir to explore. I read good things about Dunsmuir Brewery Works and it didn't disappoint. Friendly staff, great beer, and good food. I had wings and pretzel and my friend had the tacos. Thumbs up all around.

Stopped by on my way from the beautiful botanical garden in Dunsmuir, and am so glad I did! I had the Street Tacos - pork in Chipotle sauce with red cabbage and green chile's on corn tortillas. My lunch mate had the pulled pork sandwich on ciabatta roll with a salad. Instead of being drenched in BBQ sauce, it had... More

Since this is a "brewery", we expected one of those large brewery/restaurant type of places. Not so! We were passing through Dunsmuir on an RV trip and needed a quick lunch stop. This is a quaint little bar and grill type of place. Good micro brews to choose from. Food is awesome - husband had the BLT which he declared... More
