Huge sandwiches and burgers....lots of apps and finger foods if you're their for happy hour or a quick stop. Their... More

Have been here several times. We have ordered sandwiches, meals, salads, and even deep fried pickles. All were delicious. We have never been disappointed with food or drinks. There is parking behind on c street and the old parking garage beside that. It does get a bit noisy if there is a big game going on, or on weekend evenings.... More

We went specifically to this brew pub because of Icky. When we arrived there was a band we went to sit at a vacant table and we were told we had to check in with the hostess. After locating the door to the resturant a man come up and greeted the people that came in behind us. They didn't know... More

Nice pub with good food and beer. The Victorian area it is located in is very charming. We had the Black and Blue Burger, the Brewben Sandwich and the Beer Cheese Soup. All were excellent. We tried the Oatmeal Stout and the Cervesa Rojo which were both good.

Passing through Reno, hubby had fish & chips, I had fish tacos with the same fried fish, and it was REALLY good. Its hard to find good fish & chips... I had the Icky, which is the beer named after the state fossil, and found it to be quite tasty. We picked up a 6 pack to take with us.... More

We go for dinner at least once a week at the Sparks location ( the original). Very good artisan beers and casual dining. Very friendly staff. Very popular in community. Also a second location in Reno that has pizza oven. All food is very good as are their in-house brewed beers.

GB opened the year we move to Reno/Sparks. We have been often, but only several times a year. I have not been in a year, and at that time I enjoyed a nice lunch outside with my son. I went again yesterday with my men's luncheon group. There were 12 of us. They were very accommodating and Kalie, our waitress... More

This place has been rundown and a dive since it opened. The food and service is iffy. It looks like an afterthought! Very very noisy, it's a bar. The crowd can be iffy as well, as a woman I would not go in there alone. If you are into drinking you'll probably think it's great, if not you probably won't.... More
