The food is what keeps folks coming back. In just a few years this establishment became the "go to" eatery for the entire Susanville area. For travelers, it would be worth the historic old west setting even if the food and brew wasn't so darned good. The combination has clicked with everyone. You just can't go wrong with the LAW!

Check your ingredients. I ordered s chopped salad that was missing salami and onions. Manager graciously made correction. Pizza crust was nice and IPA was good. Bathroom was spotless and the restaurant was spacious and airy. I would go back if I lived in susanville. A beautiful setting.

My husband enjoyed the best ever Monte Cristo sandwich. It was battered, fried and stuffed with the usual goodness. The garlic fries were the best I've ever had as if they were soaked in garlic juice for perfect distribution of flavor. My hamburger was beautifully cooked and hit the spot. The beer was OK. My husband thought his Porter was... More

A historic building with very interesting decorations on one entire wall, brands from all the ranches in the area. Must be more than one hundred. Good food, most likely the best in town. I have had lunch and dinner and both have always been good. In addition great brews on tap. I have tried a number of items on the... More

This is a fun place and the food is good. We went for lunch. My husband ordered the minestrone soup which he liked. Then we shared a burger and fries. It is not cheap but it is good. I ordered the grass fed beef which added two dollars to my burger. The fries were abundant. They also have a full... More

This place is an old hotel from yesteryear, done up nicely and turned into a brew pub. The food is good, so is the service, and these folks are very community minded. Well worth the stop!

I love this restaurant. The food is five star. As an example, I had just returned from the Oregon coast, having been at a salmon feed on the wharf. It was very good. A couple of days later I went to the Lassen Ale Works and ordered salmon. It was far superior tasting than the salmon I had in Oregon!... More

Lassen Ale Works at the Pioneer Saloon in Uptown Susanville is NE California's only brewpub. The historic Pioneer Mercantile building we occupy has been home to a saloon for over 150 years--look for the large vintage neon Pioneer sign on the south side of Main Street. We offer a small but eclectic menu of house-made dishes including fish and chips, lamb stew, hamburgers and fresh salads. Our ales are made on site and include light and dark ales from the pale, crisp Bizz Johnson Blonde to the rip snorting Pioneer Porter. We also have a full bar, specialty cocktails, wines by the glass and a selection of single malt scotch. Take a seat at our 36-foot-long bar and admire the wall of local ranch brands above the bar back. Or watch the brewer at work in the back room and play pool beneath the historic mural that celebrates Susanville's logging and ranching roots.
