“Good beers and food”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 via mobile

Stopped here during a Tahoe trip. Burger and beers were good and place was buzzing. Staff is not super attentive but very busy. Friendly though, so that was good. It isnt cheap, but not rediculous. It isn't a burger place, and they have soups, sandwiches, and even fish and steak. The place isnt big, they do have some wall mounted tv's and bar stayed full the whole time. Its kid friendly and a good place to drop into for a treat.

“Great Brewery, Great Food”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

The beers are excellent, and the food even more so. There are quick and easy sandwiches and some awesome large entrees. The servings are LARGE. The atmosphere is perfect for a mountain town.

“Food/Beer great SERVICE sucks”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

I live a half hour away and thought this place would be fun to check out. Plus they have great "happy hour" specials.
The 1st time I came here with my husband we had a great experience. The 2nd time...not so much. I'm doing this review on the service. We usually sit at the bar. Our bartender was drunk. And when we asked for our bill he "forgot" it was happy hour. So we had to remind him.
Now this is the 3rd time..we wanted to give it 1 more try...
Same bartender we had last time. This time he wasn't drunk. If he was I couldn't tell this time. I had to ask him for things..to order food and for drinks. And by the time we got our bill he again charged us full price when it was clearly "happy hour".
When I asked about the bill..He said they don't do happy hour specials on MLk weekend. Which was BS because it was Friday and it clearly says m-f happy hour on their website from 3 to 6pm
Anyway another server told him it was happy hour and he corrected our bill.
We will not be coming here again. The food is very good though. But if you're coming here to have a few drinks at the bar or eat..I would not recommend it. Maybe having a seat at a table will be better.

“So good we went two nights in a row”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We had a great meal at 5 / 50, so we went back the next night (and not because we were staying close by). Highlights included the beef sandwich, meatloaf, turkey BLT, and pizza. A couple items were not so great, including a "green chili soup" and calamari (waayyyy too many legs, and weird sauce). For drinks, we tried an Eclipse (Imperial Stout aged in oak barrels - yum) and a porter (decent). The service was friendly and attentive, and the interior very attractive. It would be good if they stayed open a bit later than 9 pm on weekdays as this is supposed to be a vacation area.
