Had dinner here because I was looking for a restaurant with some craft beer to wrap up our trip through the the SW. Everyone enjoyed their dinner. Our family ordered everything from hamburgers to fish. The menu seemed to have something for everyone. My wife enjoyed her mixed drink (which means it wasn't terribly strong on alcohol but yet tasty).... More

Main Street Brewery has a terrific line-up of craft brews--my favorite is the Schnorzenboomer Doppelboch--and a fabulous kitchen.

There are booths and tall... More

I think this is the best brewery in Cortez, and for many miles around if you are coming from Utah. I have been stopping here for years on the way back from Moab. The food is also very good pub fare. If you like a nice brewery without much fuss or music, and usually no crowds, this is the place.

Went for a late lunch, 2pm. Greeted by cheerful hostess. Our server, Sami greeted us with beer list and menu. Since we were camping at Mesa Verde, my phone was deadish and Sami offered to charge it while we ate. Ordered soft pretzel for appetizer. Pretty good. Sami made helpful suggestions for lunch. I had wheat beer, very good and... More

My husband and I usually eat at the loungin lizard but tonight we thought we should try a new place just for a change. Boy were we sorry. I had a beef patty with green chili stew. The patty was undercooked and i could not find the green chili stew. Waitress let me order another item. I chose the fish... More

We rolled into town a little later than expected and needed a place to eat. This was the only one close by we could find open until 10 so we gave it a try. We were not disappointed! Fantastic food and friendly service! The ribs are so good and the fresh home made lasagna to die for! Fish and chips... More

Lots of traveling around. We visited 4 national parks today and were ready for some chilling and good food and that's exactly what we got.
