At Canyon Lakes we are committed to fresh ingredients—both in our beer and kitchen.

Our ten barrel brewing system opened in September of 2017 and now produces award-winning craft beer served both in our restaurant and taproom. We offer a series of limited release beers from local and season ingredients and a full menu from our scratch kitchen. Join us for our First Friday Music series to hear local musicians from 6:00 – 9:00 pm, host a private event, or ask about joining our Tuesday night Bocce League.

Stop by for a relaxing meal on the patio, game of bocce ball, or pint of limited release beer in our taproom.

The decor is very bland and to be honest, not welcoming.
The food was ok, not great. Our server was very nice and attentive. We’d probably come again at lunch time.

We went there on Valentines Day. Place was poorly attended. No wonder we found a reservation at 6:45 pm!
The appointments were mediocre. The only good item that I enjoyed were the beer battered mushrooms. The entre and the salad I couldn't eat...brought them home and later tossed them.
I gave two stars because the server was nice and the cocktails were OK.

The food was so so at the Canyon Lakes Restaurant & Brewery. I went there for their Super Bowl Party and I had their Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich which was ok and I had their barbecue chicken wings which were also ok. I ordered a Sangria, but I didn't like it and got a glass of Merlot instead.

The staff was very friendly and our server was good. They were late setting up for the Super Bowl Party and I thought they should have been set up by the time we got there (2 pm). The owner said something to me about using one of the high chairs to hold my purse and tote bag and I told the manager I didn't like what he said because there were plenty of chairs available. He eventually apologized for what he said and I accepted the apology.

I met my girlfriends at Canyon Lakes Restaurant & Brewery. It was pouring down rain, the bocce ball lanes were full of water. I took them mainly there for the view, but of course it was cloudy and cold outside. We had reservations so we were seated right away. The service was excellent and the food was different and very good. We ordered drinks and had a very nice time talking and eating our lunch. We were not rushed. The drinks were good and the food was very good. The people were very nice and accommodating. Lots of tv's on the gold channel.

There was a children’s soccer team having lunch in the dining room behind the reception area and we were seated by the partition. Noisy. Noticed a bigger dining area behind the partition where maybe the soccer team should have had their lunch ??
I had the carnitas tacos with dry crunchy ends. Please keep the meat in au jus so it’s not so dry. We want to come back and try other items on the menu

Great place for getting together with friends. You have a beautiful view of the city and can talk because it's not noisy. The service is great, and I like the beer and food. My friends and I enjoyed our lunch and will be back.

Husband birthday
It was VERY LOUD with guys slamming Yaztee cup every play. Unfortunately because food was good
Never got our appetizers
Not the best service
Complained to manager
Gave 20 % tip to waitress eventhough she didn’t do a 20% job but hoping it was just a bad day and next time if we go again is better

Sitting outside offers a beautiful view in the evening. Inside is mediocre at best. The food is very basic and just ok. The service is hit and miss.

This is not a review of the restaurant. I am not sure whose fault it is (the restaurants or open table). we had a reservation for 6 people for Friday at 7:30 pm but when we got there the restaurant was closed for a private event. This was a 15th wedding anniversary celebration and we had to find some place in the last minute. There ought to be some form of communication between the restaurant and open table for these kinds of events

Great find! Beautiful scenery, really good craft beers - would be worth the trip for the beer alone but the food was wonderful!!!! Service staff was friendly and made it a fun experience.

It’s a very basic set up for a restaurant - they don’t lay the tables for example. The view is lovely and the food is pleasant

That patio! What a find! Tables were nothing fancy but the view was amazing.

Ordered the veggie wrap, no pesto, and it was very fresh and filling.

Sounds like I can bring my dog next time on the patio--I'll be back!
