A full fledged restaurant with brewery. Nothing special. The food was good as well as service. But again, nothing really stands out. Had two different mudshark wheat beers that did not impress me much but on the other hand I was told that it is very difficult to brew a good beer in that climate.

The staff was friendly. The server catered to our every need. The cajun shrimp tacos were great paired with the pitcher of Full Moon.

We enjoyed enough to revisit and replay our order.

They have a comprehensive selection. You are sure not to be disappointed for your time.

Bon appetite!

Place has a retired folks vibe... if there is such a thing. More restaurant than brewery. Bar seats 10 a multitude of tables and booths. 17 beers on tap the one I had was ok. Food was reasonable.

A decent "beer restaurant" with good wings, burgers, steaks and a decent full menu. This is a "real" mid-level, "beer" restaurant.

There is a relatively small bar area and the place serves only its own brews. There were 10 listed on the blackboard, of which they were out of 2 of them. They also sell their beers in a can (the ones they can, obviously) and they also have a Chamber of Commerce brewed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Lake Havasu. Wax dipped bottle (which, I believe, is their only bottle).

Decent food. Beers are fine albeit uninspired. The Twenty Eleven Scotch Ale was the highlight for me, although you can get a full tasting flight of most brews and you can substitute.

All in all, probably one of the best places to go if you find yourself in Lake Elsinore.

More of chill spot to eat some pizza or chicken wrap that I enjoy when I stop at the mudshark. Not to much of an atmosphere everytime I stop by, its seems to me that it's has more of a restaurant feel than a brew pub. The food is better than their beer. although they have a good selection of beers they really don't have anything that will knock your socks off. To me they're average brews but do fine in a small town envoirment. I still keep coming by when I roll up to AZ. The bartenders are really nice though and make it more enjoyable to be there when it's not busy and kinda quite for a beer session.

Mudshark was the second best brewpub that I have visted in Lake Havasu City area. The first thing I remember about this place was the aroma of the pizza when we walked into the bulding. The aroma was smelled so good, it had me hungry, the problem was that I just left a brewpub about 20 to 30 minutes before where we had already eaten dinner. The beers were good, not nothing to great but good enough if in the area it is worth a visit. If I had a choice between Mudshark and the other brewpub, I would choose that other one.
