The menu changes throughout the year, and there is always something new. Everything on the menu is fresh and local! Crowded at times, but the staff and cooks do a great job when you finally get your table. A must go to spot!

Sierra Nevada remains high on our list of the best large-scale brewers of great artisan beers, and a visit to the homeship confirmed why. If you're a real brewski, take the Geek Tour and get down and dirty behind the scenes and drink right out...More

For Chico residents, this is the go to restaurant when out of town guests come to Chico. The attraction is the beer. It's an attractive setting, but very loud inside. Usually, has long waits. The food choices are limited.

The food is good. Very fresh and tasty. Salads are good. Not that big of a selection on the menu. Long wait at dinner time.

I only had a couple of beers and 2 orders of chicken wings. GOOD WINGS! Nicer than most micro brew restaurants.

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.
