The outdoor seating is great, even on a cooler night. Service was fast and friendly. They no longer have the taster with shot size glasses for the entire beer selection. Which is not a bad thing. The regular taster with 4 types of beer is...More

The service was excellent! I had been dining at quite a few restaurants in Chico while visiting there, looking for the best steak I could find. I went to some of the best known, but Sierra Nevada had the best steak, and it was not...More

Great beer selection, great ambiance, great food. Most servers are above average. Some servers just dial it in. The beer cheese pretzel is the best ever.

Beer, burgers, and brewskies. Beer does ot get fresher than this. In addition the food is great. More than burgers, but that’s what goes best with beer. If your kids go to Chico State use this as an excuse to drink good beer.

I love this place! Great beer, awesome food, good people. A "must-do" if you're visiting Chico from out of the area. I am fortunate to live here and enjoy it whenever I want.

Came here on a summer weekday night and it was packed. We had a 30 minute wait for a four-top. The ambience is that of a traditional brewpub, with a massive, loud, dining room and a long bar. The interior decor looked a bit dated...More

Sierrra Nevada is extremely consumer friendly and open so I'm sure they can accommodate you. The menu is posted online on their website and they also have a contact form so you can ask them directly.

No, they don't. It's only a long wait on those times where everyone has the same special events, like graduation. You can call to put your name on the wait list, but we're usually seated within 20 minutes.
