My friends and I had an early dinner, and it was packed even at 6:30 PM. The fish and chips were great and so were the burgers. They serve beer and wine only, and have live music certain nights. They also have a patio, but...More

There is a restaurant down the road from this one boasting the best burgers in the state but they are lying- you'll find the best burgers here. Great combinations, which are juicy and delicious with a wonderful selection beers to wash it down with.

We had a group of fifteen for dinner here. Great and reasonably priced. Fed kids and adults, and even had gluten free stuff for this celiac mom! Very family friendly and the kids enjoyed the brewed root beer made on the premises.

This place has great food and has cold beer. Sometimes it seems like the wait staff is overworked. It takes longer than a usual amount of time to get your food. You have to hunt them down in order to get your check.

We were a party of 17 on a Friday night; not only were they able to accommodate us, but, keep the beers flowing, food coming and all with a smile. Some of the best beer there is anywhere, not just Kernville.

I have to agree with the other reviews about the lousy service, the overcooked tasteless food. The Beer was warm. In fact when the other people in our party mentioned that the calamari was overcooked, the waitress just smurked. Seriously?
