It's The Lassen Ale Works, but out front it says The Pioneer Saloon. We did a beer sampler and decided on an Almanor Amber Ale and an Uptown Brown Ale. We both ordered the French Dip, sliced roast beef, Swiss cheese, creamed horseradish sauce on a Trucker Sourdough Dutch Crunch Roll. The beer, sandwiches, and service (by Shaleen) were all... More

First let me say that I'm from the SF Bay Area, reasonably affluent, and used to paying a lot of money for fine dining. Stopped in at the Lassen Ale Works at the Pioneer Saloon for drinks and dinner. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, good beer and reasonably priced drinks. Ordered the porterhouse steak special. No price posted on the special... More

This seems to be a popular place with locals. It was a Wednesday night. It was very busy, which is a good sign, so we tried it. We were not disappointed. The wait stuff was very polite, quick and efficient. I had the fish and chips and they were good. The only thing I can say negative is that it... More

The food, beer, and service was excellent. They even had a pool table in the back room to occupy the guys and a 1 yr old baby! Burgers, pastrami and the lamb stew were great. Loved the amber ale and the volcano beers. This restaurant will be a mainstay for our kids who just moved to Susanville!

Stayed an unplanned night in Susanville and needed to find a place to eat. Looked up places and found Lassen Ale Works. The location does not seem the best but the service was good, beer was good and the mac and cheese was very tasty. Try the stout beer you will love it.

Happening spot in Susanville in an authentic old-fashioned tavern. It was fun to look at all the old branding iron symbols for the local ranches above the bar. You can dine near the bar or in a back dining room with large western mural wall.

An old western style bar that has been turned into a microbrewery. It has a good selection of beers, interesting ambiance, decent quality of food and great staff.

Lassen Ale Works at the Pioneer Saloon in Uptown Susanville is NE California's only brewpub. The historic Pioneer Mercantile building we occupy has been home to a saloon for over 150 years--look for the large vintage neon Pioneer sign on the south side of Main Street. We offer a small but eclectic menu of house-made dishes including fish and chips, lamb stew, hamburgers and fresh salads. Our ales are made on site and include light and dark ales from the pale, crisp Bizz Johnson Blonde to the rip snorting Pioneer Porter. We also have a full bar, specialty cocktails, wines by the glass and a selection of single malt scotch. Take a seat at our 36-foot-long bar and admire the wall of local ranch brands above the bar back. Or watch the brewer at work in the back room and play pool beneath the historic mural that celebrates Susanville's logging and ranching roots.
