Dinner and Thursday Night Football! Great starters and tasty entrees. I had the Sonora fish tacos which were very good. Everything on the menu looked good, so it was hard to decide what to order. A wide variety of brews on tap and great service!...More

The beer is exceptional and the food is great. If you come to visit you will not be disappointed and if you live here in Reno you know how great it is.
