Bear Republic Brewing Lakeside Rohnert Park
The Norgrove family invites you to come by for hearty, healthy food and our award winning ales. Our beers pair nicely with every entrée and are often used as an ingredient.
We dined at Bear Republic Brewing Co. for lunch and were delighted to find such a nice place to go in our neighborhood. There was attention to detail with the layout of the place catering to all ages you could sit at one of the high tables or in a booth type setting. I enjoyed a creamy casserole with chicken, roasted peppers and zucini . I don't usually order chicken but noticed that it was Rocky brand and that told me that attention was paid to ingredients. Our wait person was helpful and friendly and we had the pleasure of talking to the general manager. This restaurant is at the top of our list for places to dine.
Food was bland and very over priced. Out of many options. I will not return!
Took my Red Hat group there. Waiter was efficient and gracefully made all 10 of us quite happy. Food is great
The food and drinks were amazing! I wish the service could have made our first visit more pleasant. Reminder to waiters: check on your tables! Clear their messy/done plates, and make sure their drinks are filled!!!!
The beer and appetizers were fantastic, however our entree's were not good. 3 of us thought cole slaw was awful, no taste, pizza was bland. This is a place to go for beer and appetizers. Service was excellent, sadly the food was not.
Outside under heater for friends Anniversary. Can't wait until it is warm enough for a table on the lake.
A good brew pub with some really great beers. Food is OK, but menu could offer more of the traditional pub foods along with the nice selection of hamburgers and salads. Inside gets noisy, so outside patio is best when the weather is right.
Great restaurant week menu. Would eat the pizza here again.
We had a great time here for Sonoma County Restaurant week. Between us, we tried to cover all the options, in order to provide a review for the website. The only real complaint, and this wasn't something the restaurant could have anticipated, was that the large group of people behind us were phenomenally noisy, as if they were talking over live music. It was even difficult to hear our server. But the food is great!
Go for their beer, not their food. Crappy burger and fries.
Service was very slow as well.
Apparently they have a dog friendly patio so that would be nice in the warmer months.
The burgers were delicious & cooked according to order. Beers were great and a wide variety to select from...enough choices to satisfy a wide range of tastes!
Good location, good remodel of place, ribs were very good, other items good, good portions. Of course beer great. Will go back
Beer-Loving Family in from out of town :)
Pros:good beers, good service, noise marginally ok.
Cons: medicocre food, selection missing things like fish chips.
Very comfortable setting with great beer. This is my "go to" spot when I'm craving good burger, fries and beer.
The food was good but the service a bit brusque. We wanted to taste a flight of beers but many were out and our waitress would not take a moment to let my son explain what he wanted she just told him what he could have and then made some substitutions without asking. Since he is our beer connoisseur, I found that annoying. We had been dying to try out the ones he cannot get in Oregon but the experience put me off. It is VERY noisy and we were there on a slow night. I think I will return to eat lunch outside on the patio rather than dinner inside. Great burger but Mac and cheese was sort of bland even with bacon.
We ate outside, thinking it would be quieter, and were assured that the heaters would be on. Part way through our meal they went off (timer, we were told) and we were freezing! Not good.
Lovely patio setting. Personnel very pleasant and efficient. Some food unexpectedly spicy but overall the food was excellent.
I have been there 3 times. Sausage pizza was great. Fish & Chips delicious but cole slaw was overpowered with dressing and bitter tasting. The menu offered salad greens that were not to my liking. Service was very good and ambience nice. If a beer drinker, I may have enjoyed it more and would recommend to friends for that. Nice to have another restaurant to go to that is in the area and will continue to try other items on the menu.
Very noisy but great place and food
We made a reservation for eight people and then showed up with 12 people and they cheerfully accommodated us! We tried two different types of beer flights and all of the beer is excellent. The food was plentiful and not overpriced. This place is going to get extremely popular!
Food was good, staff was friendly. They made a lot of mistakes and forgot our drinks.
But it is a new restaurant. And the outside area sitting Lake view made up for it
Restaurant just opened, so a few speed bumps in service but nothing unacceptable. Food was great and looking forward to being on the patio next time to enjoy Roberts Lake view. Very noisy but expected for the type of restaurant/microbrewery it is.
Think they need more time to pull it together
Huge kitchen but not much to choose from on menu.
