I'm from Redlands, and nothing displeases me more than getting my hopes up for a brand new brewery coming to town, and finding that the beer sucks. I've seen two other Redlands breweries fail because of bad beer (Brickhouse Brewery and Downtown Redlands Brewery). If this place does not make it on food alone, it will not survive. I've been there twice, but have not returned in several months. Let's face it. When I need to order Anderson Valley's Hop 'Ottin off their beer menu instead of their own brew, that's pretty pathetic.

They spent a lot of money and about 5 years putting plans together to build this place, and it really is a fine looking restaurant. But they don't even brew here. They brew at P.H. Woods in Moreno Valley, or Babe's in Rancho Mirage.

I've not tried the entrees here, although I have tried some tasty appettizers. If it's anything like P.H. Woods or Babe's food, it will be good. But I can't get past the bad beer scene. Sorry. I'm very disappointed.

This place was a very big let down

Out of the 30 or so taps with no real craft beer

A lot of the Widmer, Budwesier, Coors, Miller products

Way too expensive for what you get

Really close to my house but not worth the short ride

Food prices are good from 3-6 pm on appetizers, but that is about it

Need to incorporate some more microbrews into this place and improve their own beer which is disappointing

Bartender was a real jerk

Glass served to me appeared dirty

Super loud obnoxious customers who seemed like regulars

Go down a couple more miles east to Gourmet Pizza Shoppe on State Street, lots of Ballast Point, Alcatraz, Rogue, and Green Flash there

Had lunch here with family on New Year's Eve (an early celebration) and just now getting around to write up a review. As I understand it, this is the third of Don Callendar's chain (son of Marie Callendar), and it's the biggest as far as I can tell.

Overall, I can't argue with much the others said. A big, spacious bar area with high ceilings and lots of country/down home barn feelings, and pig decor everywhere. Big TVs with lots of football playing, and apparently a nice fireplace in the restaurant/table area.

Beer included 4 ales from their Moreno Valley restaurant/brewery and about 20-25 taps. Many of these taps were macros, Gunness, Sam Adams, Widmer Hefeweisse, Sierra Navada Pale Ale and the like. OK selection, but far from excellent. The MoVal beers (PH Woods) were, as always, decent but unremarkable. I always have very high hopes for their beers, and always walk away a little disappointed. Good, but not great.

Food was good, ok, very good, but the menu was pretty limited in this day and age, and the prices were high. 4 of use spent over $90 for a few beers and lunch.

If I have a choice, I'll go to PH Woods in Moreno Valley.
