Very good beer and local grass fed beef! Don't miss it if you're in the area. Check out the history too.

This place is full of Hikers from the PCT taking a night off. This is a a great place to get a good meal in Etna (we had the BBQ special) and rub elbows with the hikers and hear their stories.

Stood around for quite a while (10+ minutes) before any of the waitresses decided to speak to me. For unknown reasons they had a very limited menu. Almost zero vegetarian options. Beef Tri tips available. But no veggie burgers Had cheese quesadilla. Tiny portion. They omitted the salsa, but I still got charged for it. Its basically the only place... More

Hours vary. Limited menu. Good food, small dining area. The location is a little hard to get to and the parking is limited along the road especially during peak meal times. I am a local.

The Etna Brewery is a simple restaurant that serves good food. The beer is worth the visit. Etna is an isolated community but a unique place. The Scott Valley is a hidden gem.

There is some good beer there, but don't go out of your way for the food. It's definitely a place to go to enjoy the beer and tolerate the food. The ipa was great and worth having 2, likewise, the home made root beer was super.

This place used to be great. Not anymore! Now it has that chain food restaurant feel and taste. SO BUMMED! We've been going here for years and always looked forward to excellent food after a nice bike ride or back packing trip. This time we got belly aches. The beer and root beer were good, but the food was now... More

This is a fun place for friends to meet and have a good sandwich. I'm not a beer drinker but my husband has enjoyed the beer in the past. The place seemed clean and pleasant when I ate there last night. The burgers are pre-made and microwaved if that bothers you. Most people I know enjoy them

The patio is nice, but inside the restaurant has kind of a grimy, smelly, dirty atmosphere. The bathroom is kind of gross. The food is pretty average, not great but not bad either. For the price, I would have expected food that was an upgrade from your average chain restaurant. Not a lot of entree selection, either. Beer is good... More
