We didn't feel like cooking so we took a chance. The entrance is deceiving as the restruant is nice but the entrance is not. The food was excellent. We both had fish and chips. The beer selection is amazing. The service was very good. The...sever was outstanding and very personable. We will go back. The prices are a little high but that could be due to supply and demans that is affecting all prices. The place was very busy which is a good sign to me.More

One of the best burgers I’ve ever had. Lots of choices for toppings and sides. Rueben had a smoky taste. Tasty thin fries. Nice selection of beers. Happy to find a place open a few minutes after 8pm.

Excellent food. Lots of basic options here, but the quality and twist on some of the items are top notch. Lots of beers to choose from, something for everyone. Service seems disorganized and slow. Orders do not come out in the order for which they...were taken at a table: if you order before another table, it is not necessarily coming out first. When in bigger groups, the time from the first plate coming out and the last can be noticeable. Way overpriced.More

Although I was grateful to find a place open ( this is as the only place open at 8 in either Los Alamos or White Rock!), this was one of the worst meals I’ve ever had. We ordered the Caesar salad with anchovies and the...shrimp with vegetables and fettuccine in lemon caper sauce. It was in a box on the menu as if it was a specialty. The pasta was grossly over cooked, and the dish was swimming in a disgusting lemon broth. The salad was served at the same time as the entree, missing the anchovies. To get the taste of the lemon “soup” out of our mouths, we asked for bread. Instead of receiving a roll or other dinner bread, we received what appeared to be Texas toast with caraway seeds! Gross and bizarre. The hostess and waitress were sweet but completely untrained. At the end, we felt we would have been better off to have eaten fast food.More

We were wrapping up a visit to the nearby National monuments and stopped in for a late lunch. Our server Ayla was both personable and professional. She saw our local maps on the table and asked if we had any questions about the area. We...felt very much at home. The selection of beer is quite extraordinary ; the lemonade with fresh basil and mint refreshing and delicious. Both entrees, fajita chicken salad and Rueben with truffle fries were well presented and satisfying. I am rating our experience 5 stars for the combination of service and food quality.More

I really enjoyed my Fajita Chicken Taco Salad & margarita. They were a little slow bringing me the menu, but the entree was served promptly. Glad they extended their outdoor seating & the weather was perfect. Thanks for a good meal.

My family and I went here for dinner during our spring break road trip. I ordered fish n chips. It was excellent. Our server was quick, efficient and friendly. There were several TVs there but because of the small size of the restaurant, it still...maintained a quaint atmosphere. I would definitely go here again.More

Passing through and stopped for lunch. I had an awesome turkey and avacado sandwich on some really great bread, but too much for one sitting. Would pass on the hand cut fries next time. Family had the shrimp and grits with chilies--a good choice. The...big winner was the short rib nachos. OMG they were awesome but so big. Very shareable for a meal. All in all a great meal. Huge portions, fair price and very nice atmosphere with attentive and nice wait staff. Would come back for sure.More

My wife, son, and I had lunch a Pajarito in February 2020. The food and service were great. I has the Green Chile Stuffed Pajarito burger and fried pickle chips. Both were fantastic. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich and my son had the...Southwest Green Chile Philly Cheesesteak. The bartender was our waiter and was very attentive and helpful. The only knock is that they do not actually brew their own beer. However, the had a good selection of beers to choose from. Highly recommended!More

Good restaurant/pub in Los Alamos - not many in the town. It was quite busy when we visited, enjoyed the fish & chips and a bison burger. Dinner after skiing at Pajarito.

I've been a customer here for years, but lately it has been uneven. I like the fish and chips, the salads are generally well made, but recent menu changes have removed one of my favorite dishes (tuna burgers) and now, they're charging extra for french...fries. I had a reuben that was nearly all fat, after years of getting good sandwiches. The soups are creative and in general I like to go here, but it's starting to be very expensive for what you get. The restaurant is usually quite busy when I go there, and service is generally good.More

We've been to brewpub several times over the past two years. Food is OK. Draft beer is good. One of the only places you can get both.

Stopped in for lunch on a Sunday afternoon after driving up from Albuquerque. Wait-staff seems confused and took a moment to get a table (place was not packed). Open-face meatloaf sandwich was OK. Not sure if I'll return.
