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.

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.

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,...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...More

I don't believe their is a premium steak on the menu. Perhaps a flat iron and a Tri-tip. I always eat burgers or sausages there as they are made locally.
