We occasionally stop here for lunch. The service is always fast and friendly. The food is very good and well priced. They have numerous beers to choose from. It's an excellent brew pub.

The Fish and Chips were great. Garlic fries or regular are available with a cucumber salad. Yummy. Friendly staff. Look interesting if you drink beer. Fun decor.

Great Basin has been around quite some time and is very consistent. Their signature beer, the Ichy, is light and recommended. Garlic fries with sandwiches or alone are tasty.

I've been there many times and the food is always great. My favorite is the fish tacos. The local brew is very popular and there are fun mixed drink cocktails as well.

While in Reno we spotted the restaurant, a sports-bar type and gave it a try. Wow! Their bread is made from their beer making hops, called ICKEY Bread...Awesome...The service and food were top notch and we highly recommend you give it a try when in town.

Try the shepherds pie and you won;t be sorry. large salads, other sandwiches and sausages are great also try the garlic fries and most importantly many great beers to choose from. If the weather is nice they also have seating outside.

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.
