We always LOVED the Beerhunter for its great selection of burgers and beers. Went a few months ago and menu had really changed and way more limited selection but still LOTS of draft beers. Went today and had a chicken/pineapple burger that was light on chicken and heavy on red sauce! No draft beers even listed...server had hand written down... More

First off let me tell you that this place is very popular. After our group of 12 was seated, the restaurant filled to capacity and a waiting line formed. Now for the food, several of us had different burgers and not one complaint. The burger was thick and juicy and had all the fixings. The burgers were so big many... More

We stopped in on our way home from a day of hiking and it met our needs of a couple cold beers and a snack. Not too busy at 4:00 pm but enjoyed looking at all of the golf bags.

A divey beer hall in La Quina. This isn't a fancy place, but if you want some good beer, good food and to watch some sports, it's the place to go. The chicken caesar salad was nice, as was my fried chicken sandwich that came with a fantastic tator tot poutine. Service was good, and patio looked nice - will... More

Was at the establishment from 7:30 -9:00 pm. No atmosphere, no music, golf on the TV 's Needless to say there was nothing exciting about 4 walls and dejected staff.

I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your recent visit here, John. For the most part, the recent change in management has been really well-received, so I'm surprised to hear this happened. I'm going to be investigating, though, as soon as possible, and I hope you won't give up on us based on this. Thank you. Best, John Barber, Hospitality... More

We flew in and found this restaurant close to our accommodations. It was seven pm on a Thursday and packed. We were told we could sit at the pool table... and even order food there. We asked what about pool? And we're told if a game starts up maybe a table might open up for us to move too. We... More

Linda, I'm sorry it was too crowded here the other night for you to have a good time, and while we did try to accommodate you I agree that the pool table solution wasn't ideal. Thank you for giving us a chance and for the review. Best, John Barber, Hospitality Ambassador More

The food was the middle of the road and they serve weak drinks. The service was not bad but they need to improve their quality.

We always want to make sure everyone leaves here happy, and I had hoped that when I met with you in person at the time of your visit, comped your drink, and provided coupons to make sure your return visit was even better, we'd be able to accomplish that.

Hey there Martin, sorry about the noise -- Friday night is definitely one of our busiest times. That said, I'm really glad to hear you were still so happy with your meals and our service, and we'd love to have you back again soon for another one of those quesadillas! Thanks again!
