Called in for a quick beer (or two) and a snack after a day skiing at Northstar. Grabbed two seats at the bar and were quickly served by the friendly barman. Great selection of beers - I chose the California Pale Ale and my daughter the Truckee Blond Reserve - and both were excellent. Got a plate of nachos to... More

Good place to find. You have to know where it is. Once you find it you'll be rewarded. Good beers and a nice selection. Good food and pleasant atmosphere.

We ate dinner at this great local brew pub just outside of downtown Truckee. the beer choices are seemingly endless. I tried the Imperial Stout, but found it way to strong for my taste. Very high alcohol content. Our server gave me a different beer with no questions asked and no charge which I thought was a a good sign.... More

I have only visited this restaurant for lunch, several times as they do not disappoint. My husband enjoyed the beer very much! You can't go wrong with any item on the menu, delicious and served with a smile. Our server was great!

The beer is good, but nothing special. Had different flights and some were really good but overall nothing to write home about. What was really upsetting was the lack of service and attention to our table. Apparently the bar staff had a better time talking to the bartender than the customers. Would make an effort to maybe return but if... More

Fifty-Fifty brewery has very good food and beer. I recently visited Truckee and went there three or four times for lunch. I had the Donner party hamburger which was awesome! I also had their tortilla soup and that was very very good! Their own beer is very tasty! They have outdoor patio seating and they are dog friendly on the... More

We walked to the restaurant from our hotel and enjoyed our evening. The beer was very good and we ordered the Ploughman's to split and then each ordered a salad. Salads were very good and appropriately sized and the Ploughman's cheeses and meats were fresh, but not an authentic display. Service was good and we enjoyed the evening on the... More

I went to Fifty Fifty for dinner tonight expecting great food and service based on reviews. What actually happened was the worst service I have ever experienced. We had to wait at least 20 minutes to order while other tables around us who came in later were getting served. At this point we finally got ahold of our server to... More

We came here because we went on a hike and beer tasting event. We fell in love with the beer and wanted to try the food. We loved the food and had our favorite one "spring fever". Wish they could have bottled this one to sell.

We were staying at the Best Western and Fifty Fifty was recommended to us by our hotel because it is within walking distance. We ate here twice and enjoyed every time. When we sat at the bar, Kara, our bartender, was a delight. Friendly, knowledgeable about the menu, the area and EVERYTHING about Truckee. We felt so at home at... More
