I'm always wiling to try a local brew. This did not disappoint. I liked the menu choices. Some very expected choices, others were quite original. I just had appetizers. Well made calamari--not overcooked! The chicken wings left a little to be desired. The flavor was fine, but the quality of the wing itself was lower than expected. Three of six... More

A rather small selection of local brews for a micro brewery/ restaurant conglomerate. Ask to sample first. Menu is interesting but not of great variety. They were out of the mussels, even though we were there early. So we ordered chili nachos, fish and chips, and the pot pie. All O.K. though the pot pie was soupy.

My wife had the salad special for the day which included and said it was very fresh with a nice blend of other ingredients. Our nephew had fish tacos... More

I met friends here for dinner and had fantastic food and service. I ordered the cheese fondue for us to share, it was awesome. I had a cup of the chile stew and then I had the salad with a perfectly cooked piece of tuna. It was prepared exactly how I like it. My friends had the ribs and meatloaf... More

I'm talking about one of the best meals my wife and I have had in the Duke City. The cheeseburger was fantastic.

The Blackened Prime Rib sandwich is killer, service is classy, fast and friendly. Great menu, you can splurge or get a decent meal for under $20.

My group really enjoyed our visit tho Chama Brewing! One of our party is a former brewpub owner and beer aficionado who pronounced the IPA outstanding. My beverage of choice was their amber - I had two and I rarely drink beer (it better be great beer for me to have more than one. Our server, Jon, was happy to... More
