“Some good some OK ...”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Since this place brewed their own beer, I was hoping for a new local brew. The brew I had was just OK -- a little watered down tasting ... nothing great. The burger was good but the sweet potato fries were just warm and greasy. Wy wife's sandwich was also greasy for her taste. The food was definitely expensive for what you got both in volume and quality. Not a place I'd rush back to, but not a place I'd never visit again either.

“Great beer, food and atmosphere”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

When we lived in Truckee, we ate here regularly. We have never had a bad meal or bad service. If you are in the area, you MUST stop in for a brew and some food!

Good beer, great food, beautiful architecture; good mix of locals, skiers and tourists.

“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.
