We're all about relaxing on the Russian River. Slow food, slow beer and lazy afternoons on the deck. So lazy, that they can easily roll well into the evening (morning?) hours. We're just a friendly rural [Brew] Pub with good local beer, good simple food and a great view. We don't take credit cards (but there's ATM machine inside) or provide table service (no matter how closely related to the royal family you are): just grab a menu and order at the counter; head over to the bar and get yourself a beer (or otherwise), we'll bring your meal out to you and, while you don't have to, we'll thank you if you bus your own table. We close the kitchen on Tuesdays. Want to walk the pooch? We've over an

We had the very best clam chowder we ever ate12/31/20; we were visiting from Indianapolis and Erik knocked it out of the park!

We had delicious food and nice spot in the shade . We were excited to sit in the beer garden with our dog. My husband enjoyed a beer while us girls had iced tea. We got perfectly made brisket and pulled pork sandwiches with fries....We loved them . With Covid-19 out there life is different but my husband ordered up by the bar and then was given a buzzer for when the order was ready. The table had a sign on it to tell us it was clean and a waitress came over and flipped it over again durning our lunch to let someone know it would need to be cleaned. We would definitely go back .More

We came here on a Monday night because it's the only night when Saucy Mama is on the premises to prepare her fried catfish dish handed down from her father. Excellent dish! with cole slaw, cornbread, honey butter and black eyed peas. Catfish was lightly...crispy and delicate without the heavy oil taste. This restaurant has its own brewery with 8-10 homebrews, including two IPAsMore

The restaurant was only open Thursday through Sunday. The brewing area was in a fishbowl. Simple menu and great prices with a an overview raised deck by the Russian River. Cheeseburgers, fries and nachos, chili, and chicken wings. Perfect weather this time of year. September...is the hottest month in the Bay Area.More

This was our first stop on our way into Guerneville. Good beer and burgers. Limited menu, but my husband did say his bean burger was very good. Nice outdoor area overlooking the river.

This place has a great selection of craft beers. The outside area is lovely, located on the river. There is grill/BBQ area for food, this has a small choice of American classics but these were very tasty. It only takes cash though, there is an...ATM. The bar and grill are different, so you have order and pay separately. It is a very relaxed place but was fab to spend a few hours enjoying the beer!More

We went here specifically because both locals and the internet told us it was dog friendly. You can not sit with your dog at a table. Your dog must stay inan enclosure at the far end of the restaurant. This is contrary to the idea...of bringing your dog. The people there gave us a hard time about not being happy about it and confused about the 'dog friendly' reputation. Can't comment on the food or drink, because we left. Disappointed. It was gourmet pizza night, and we were really looking forward to it.More

I'm sorry you were misled but, in fairness, not by us, or tripadvisor. There are a number of "not dog friendly" reviews for us here and on yelp (and sadly the two sites seem to be blending). We just try to balance California state health...More

The facility overlooks the river and has a great river vibe. Great selection of on site beer. Food is average for a pub. When available try the Bar B Q

I had been wanting to go to Stumptown Brewery for quite awhile so I was glad we finally made it! But the cook of the day was Saucy Mama (?) and I'm going to get this wrong but a traveling guest cook? Her menu was...totally Southern but they were out of the fried okra, collard greens, fried chicken. She apologized and said she's trying to order the correct amounts! But the cat fish was fine. So, it is hard to rate the overall experience as this isn't the standard fare. Other than not being able to get the beer battered fish and chips which is what I had wanted......very kick back atmosphere, large deck with lots of seating, nice grassy area and view of the quiet meandering Russian River. Next time.....fish and chips! The wine selection was more than limited being in wine country! Beer is top priority here.More

Stopped because photos looked like it would be a fun picnic by the river on the grass with dog and toddler. No dog- they must be kept in a little pen on the side of the deck- so luckily there was shade for her and...she stayed in car. Not sure if toddler was really welcome, but people on deck enjoyed her. Went down to grassy area, but only to see if we could get to river. Sign said couldn’t take beer down to grass, so stayed on deck. Deck was nice and shaded. Food was okay. Red ale was okay, but the IPA was pretty good.More
