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. Manager Scott was busy micromanaging staff in earshot of us. Spent our whole visit watching him and staffs reaction. Turning pool tables into dining tables with banquet chairs is a... 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.

I'm sorry to hear your visit was a disappointment, JT. 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. Still,... More

Went to the Beer Hunter because it was close to the hotel and we were just looking for a quick bite and a beer. Friday night so it was LOUD with a lot of people. We ordered beers and I gotthe quesadilla. My son had the wings. BEST quesadilla ever. It had short rib beef and lobster. I recommend it... More

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!

There were 4 of us and we were looking for a casual meal... Beer Hunter is very casual and service was friendly. Food was mixed... The Reuben Sandwwich was very good. Chicken Salad sandwhich may have had some chicken salad on it... Pizza ? The worst... No flavor and chewy....

Ken, I'm sorry and surprised to see that you were so disappointed in your visit -- I just wish we'd known at the time so we could've corrected any mistakes we made.

Stopped in after golf for drinks and snacks. Service was ok, but nothing unique. Food was average at best. Time for a remake.

Thank Bruce_and_Valerie
John B, Owner at The Beer Hunter, responded to this review

As you can imagine, Bruce and Valerie, it's concerning to see the service and food were so lackluster. I'm not sure what you tried that I could look into, but a one-star meal simply isn't what we're about. I'm not sure where we have room for improvement, but I truly hope we'll have another chance to win you over someday.... More

Not much to say here. Average in my opinion. I would go back. Food was ok. Prices for what I got was a tad high but it's the area.

Thank Teacherdavison
John B, Owner at The Beer Hunter, responded to this review

An average meal isn't what we're about in the least, and I really wish I knew more about where we had room for improvement. We've recently changed hands with our management, and we're doing our best to implement all feedback to really shine moving forward. I hope we'll get another chance to prove that and truly win you over someday!... More
