Hit this place up twice on a recent visit to Northern California.
I was salivating over going here and it sure the hell did NOT disappoint!
The bar itself is rather rustic - cement floor, wooden tables, walls are decorated with signs of beer and merchandise. Long bar with tables surrounding it. There is a side room with a few tables in there as well.
First trip in there was a bit busy. Wait staff was definitely stretched but they were all friendly, helpful and willing to talk to you about the beer. My second trip back (those less busy) proved to have the same friendly service I received before.
Food was outstaaanding! Somewhat limited yet expansive menu. Sounds weird right? Well, There are really only appetizers, calzones and pizzas... however the selection of pizza is amazing. Oh, and I should mention FREAKING delicious! Get The Clipper! You won't be disappointed!
Beer selection? Come on - this is RR. They had a fantastic selection of beers - IPA's, Sours, Belgians, a Stout.
The price on this place is ridiculous!!! Ridiculously cheap! First time we hit at happy hour, but even the second time, reasonable. I mean a pint of Pliny for like 4.50? I could get a craptastic Corona in Boston for 5 or 6 depending on the place.
Great food, great beer, staff that is knowledgeable and friendly. This is a must stop if ever in the area! (1,348 characters)

Amazing beer, pretty cool place, and a friendly atmosphere. I would be heaven if you didn't have to wait 45 minutes to get a place to sit down. Overall...hell, it is is RR. You have to go. (191 characters)

My wife and I visited on our honeymoon in February for a quick lunch. This quick lunch turned in to 4 hours sitting at the bar, a full paddle of every beer offered followed by a few pints, and ordering food 3x. Such a great experience, we are already looking forward to our return trip to California and will plan to spend a full day at Russian River next time. (362 characters)

Obviously world class beer. Great selection and access to bottles to go. Only downfall is the near inevitable 2 hour wait for a table. (134 characters)

Best atmosphere around. I went with a good friends of mine on a Friday night of course it was packed and we couldn't get a seat at the bar but it was alright. The beer plus everyone there is friendly (probably because the beer is that good). Good convo great beer good friends? Can't beat that Russian river is king. (317 characters)

I went here on a road trip. My wife had to drag me out, otherwise I'd still be there. (85 characters)
