The food we had was all excellent, as was the beer considering the alcohol laws in Utah (everything on draft is 5% ABV)

Late lunch around 1pm. Took 40 minutes to get our food. There was a large group plus they were short help so be aware that there might be delays. The single VBC burger was ok but not the best burger I’ve had. The candied bacon...was the best part. My wife and I split it. She got the salad as a side and she really liked the bacon Parmesan dressing. . We ordered a side of onion rings and for $6 you got a lot but they were overdone (dark brown) and too crunchy. The tea was good and the waiter kept it refilled.More

I've never been to a microbrewery where the servers did not have input on the beers they serve (and we've been to several so we know the questions to ask), until here. She offered little information other than the 2 beers that were not offered...in the flight. So we picked 4 vastly different tasters...or so we thought. It was hard to tell them apart and they were not labeled when brought out to us. We ordered our food and a pint but needed items like silverware, napkins, waters, condiments....the server was way more interested in talking to her co-workers and hanging out at the bar. Tracking her down was more of a chore than the overpriced drinks and food should require. I absolutely get that many restaurants are short handed and over worked. But this was not the case here. I'd say save your money and buy some coors light instead of wasting it on this brewery.More

We were greeted by a very friendly greeter but our waitress was lacking the greeters enthusiasm. No smiles, no greeting just poor service. Food was good but the beer was rather plain. They all generally tasted the same. The pale ale, which was described as...hoppy, tasted bland. We thought for a moment it was a blond ale. We got more attention from the the kid busing the tables than from our waitress. He stopped several times to see if we needed anything.More

IPA was excellent. museum across the street had lots of beautiful flowersMore

A welcome surprise in Vernal. A clean new building with a lively atmosphere which is great for couples or the entire family.

The lady at the front desk of our hotel recommended the Vernal Brewing Company as a good option for dinner. She was correct. We chose to eat at the bar, and our server (bartender) Paige was great; patient and helpful. Her recommendations were spot on...and we really enjoyed our dinner. We highly recommend this as a dining option.More

We ate supper the night before our raft trip. Our entrees were very tasty and the serving sizes were just right. The craft beer was good also.

The prices are a bit high for Vernal and the portions are too low...thus a low-value proposition. Add to that some seriously bad nickel-and-diming. Example: 17 dollars for three fish tacos. Fish portions small. I asked for some more aioli sauce: they charged $1.25 for...a small plastic container. My wife ordered a$15 gyro. She asked for some more pita, same extra charge. The beers are adequate, not great. One off.More

Really good food, good beer and really good service. Great place for lunch or dinner and an interesting building as well. A definite stop if you are in town for outdoor activities and ready for a recharge. Very impressive for such a small town!
