We chose their outdoor balcony on a sunny day in Kernville. The weather, craft beers, and delicious food all made for a very pleasant afternoon. My son ordered the Kern Burger and I had the fish and chips. The food and beers were excellent.

My wife and I love this place. Great food and great beer and on our last trip to Kernville we ate here everyday. The new "Backyard" addition to the restaurant was awesome. It's a different menu with the same beer so it's like being at another amazing restaurant.

Ordered a burger, got it after 30 minutes, cold and almost tasteless. Chili on top didn't help a bit. I won't be back. I can get cold beer anywhere.

Great setting with lots of outdoor seating. Food was good and it's a family friendly atmosphere. The beer was also definitely worth trying as well! They didn't rush you and we had a pleasant time sitting on the deck trying the different beers!

Another "tweener" as KRBC really deserves a 3.5 but we had a good time so a "4" it is. The beers are good, not great. The brewer is really into hops as there are many IPA's and other hoppy brews on the menu. The food was great for "pub-grub" and our large party mowed through multiple servings of just about... More

This is a great little spot with craft beers and yummy burgers. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the beer sampling and our burgers. They also have a nice little deck for outside dining, and I've been told it is dog friendly on the deck. Another plus in my book!

The service here was very friendly and efficient and the beer, brewed on site was excellent - something for everyone's tastes. We had a half order of chicken wings between us and a burger each - both a bit uninteresting. But I would still go again for the beer and service.

I came here with my brother and boyfriend. The staff is great, very helpful and accommodating. They were able to ask about ingredients to accommodate my food allergies even during a lunch rush. The good was good. The tortilla burger was a happy surprise and very enjoyable. Good atmosphere, good staff, good food. I dig it!
