I wish that I could remember our server's name to give her credit, but it was A+. Top rated delicious beers. We got there about 6pm on a Monday with a party of 5, and had to wait about 20 minutes...There were some open 2 and 3 tables open at the bar area at that time, if I was there... More

When we arrived for lunch, we were surprised to see the long line. Here's how it works. First you wait in line outside. It took us about 40 minutes to get up to the outdoor host. At that point we were invited inside to get our name on a list for a table for food. While waiting for a table,... More

Had lunch at this incredibly popular watering hole in Santa Rosa. The thin crust pizza's were really delicious, and there was a nice variety to choose from. The server was super helpful and accommodating ( we asked if she could cut the chicken sandwich into 4 as part of the group sharing and she managed to do it). The salad... More

The crowd tells it all. With a constant but quick line, you're bound to make it in by the bar which I'd take over the table if you're just grabbing a flight. The food is very good for a brewery and try to pick up Pliny on your way out!

Fun place, great beers and great bar food. The wait was long, but they were very efficient about keeping the line moving. We were a party of 6 and they were able to get us in within 30 minutes. Do be prepared to wait though. We got there Friday at 1:30 and they initially said 45 minute wait. Pretty close... More

Came for the wine tasting with family. But after the wineries close, head on over to the Russian river Brewing company fo dinner and drinks. Beer and wine available. The food is great the Pliny the elder is fantastic, also loved the OVL stout on Nitro. Pizza bites fill the void. There can be a bit of a wait, but... More

Just gutted. We made it all the way here (10,000km) only to be told it was 45 minutes for a table and the bar was 6 deep for a drink. Maybe we should have picked a better day but we were going off our Sierra Nevada experience. So we bought some beer and left. They really need to take a... More

Waited one hour for a seating after being told we had a 30 minute wait. Outdoor and indoor seating. Very popular place so go early, or late, to get seating. Not sure if they take reservations. Pliney the Elder was my beer of choice, a little hoppier than I prefer but still a good choice. Pizza was very good. Recommended.

I used to live in Santa Rosa and have been here many, many times. Now, I make it a point to stop by RRBC whenever I am in the area. The beers and food are top notch. IPA is my favorite beer and Pliny the Elder one of my absolute favorites (Double India Pale Ale). Hopfather and Blind Pig IPA's... More

We visited on a Thursday afternoon with the hopes that it wouldn't be too crowded. Unfortunately the wait was still around 35 minutes for a table for 4. The great thing is that they use the NoWait app where they text you when your table is ready. So you can wander around nearby shops to kill the time. Or see... More
