This was my second visit to this restaurant. I had the buffalo salad and it was excellent! Hubby had the burger and said he loved the BBQ sauce. Fries good too. Great little gem in Kernville!

Came on a Friday night around 7 and were seated right away. Good selection of beers. Fish and chips were just OK though. Average prices, $9-12 for burgers, sandwiches etc. Had the cheesecake and ice cream for dessert and would recommend only the ice cream. Huge scoop for a couple bucks vs. over $5 for a tiny cheesecake. Waitress was... More

Always have a good meal here. If you like the beer, some good stuff. The food is always fresh and prepared well. Service is friendly.

We really enjoy coming to the Brewing Company for the food and of course, the beer. The fish and chips are great and their burgers are big and delicious. There is indoor and outdoor seating which makes it even better. Great friendly service.

Came in for dinner on a Sunday night. We were seated right away. Our table overlooked the brewing tanks. Service was fast and friendly. We were starving so we started with garlic cheese fries. They were delish. We all ordered burgers. Very satisfying meal.

The Kern River Brewing Company is a great place for lunch or dinner. The beers they serve are amazing! We enjoyed the Sequoia Red. The food they serve is delicious. We ate their twice for lunch and dinner and we were never disappointed. Hubby got the pulled pork tacos and he said they were delicious. The tacos were stuffed with... More

My friends and I had an early dinner, and it was packed even at 6:30 PM. The fish and chips were great and so were the burgers. They serve beer and wine only, and have live music certain nights. They also have a patio, but it was too hot for us to sit out there. It's a popular place for... More

There is a restaurant down the road from this one boasting the best burgers in the state but they are lying- you'll find the best burgers here. Great combinations, which are juicy and delicious with a wonderful selection beers to wash it down with.

Lively place with a nice vibe. Patio seating a must with great views. It was well covered in the heat surrounding us! We enjoyed the brews, added a pretzel and dessert which were both good. Service was very good, attentive server who gave us an education on the different ales we were indulging in.

Normally when I stop at a brewing restaurant, I like to sample the brews. Well, this time we stopped for lunch and were on motorcycles, no beer for me. We all seem to agree on what we wanted, the special Kern burger, (not the correct name but you will recognize it on the menu). Wow, either we were very hungry,... More
