Nice atmosphere, good energy, decent food. I shared the salmon tacos and fish tacos with a colleague they were very good. Good choices of beer we're definitely coming back here.

We always enjoy the Nugget's Rib Cook Off from the air conditioned and quiet interior of the Great Basin Brewing Company restaurant.

I was visiting Reno for business and stopped here for lunch on the recommendation of a friend. I was not disappointed! The patty melt was amazing and the garlic fries are not for the faint of heart. In fact, I enjoyed my meal so much, I came back again the next day for lunch. I can officially recommend the tuna... More

I've been to Basin Brewing Co. 2x and both times had an excellent pub meal and my husband tells me the beer is excellent. Both times we've visited, we've brought our children and my in-laws. All generations have enjoyed reading the "antique" and very dated advertisements on the walls--it's great fun. The one draw back is that it can get... More

LOVE their fish and chips and LOVE their ChiliBeso beer. Good service. Good atmosphere. Not too loud.

I had to grab some Icky IPA, as it's hard to find outside of the Reno area. Bought a six pack of cans. Great price for off sale. Great beer as always!

This Brewpub is popular with locals and features a broad selection of tasty beers for $5.00 per pint. The atmosphere is very casual with several TV's for watching sports. The menu is pub food that is reasonably priced. Their popular food items include pizzas, sausages, sandwiches, burgers and fish & chips. The brewhouse sausages and garlic fries are customer favorites.

I think everyone has someplace that is their "go to" place. Don't ask me why, but this is mine. It is funky, informal, and those who work their always greet you as though they know you. The food is "Bar Food", the beer is good, and they never make you feel like you need to get in and get out.

I love this place. They have a creative selection of craft-made beers they design to satisfy all types of brew tastes .. and their food is excellent. Don't miss their beer cheese soup - although I do miss their former bread and wish they'd bring it back. They have specialties on a limited basis, and the most recent that I... More
