Brewery
Salmon River Brewery makes award winning craft beer using using as many local and regional ingredients as possible. We are a family friendly restaurant with rooftop & patio dining in the summer that features some of the best views in McCall. In the winter, we have an outdoor fire pit to warm your bones after a day at one of our local ski resorts or flying through powder on your snowmobile.

Find us in McCall’s old train depot above the Hotel McCall’s courtyard, next to Legacy Park and Payette Lake. We offer a full restaurant menu in addition to our extensive beer & wine selection, which features a rotating variety of Salmon River Brewery creations as well as numerous guest taps. We look forward to seeing you at the Pub or Taphouse!

I already reviewed on Yelp, but will review here as well since I use OpenTable frequently. Will never go back, worst customer service and food was awful (fried fish inedible). Bar waitress spilled (more like through while cleaning another table) all over my husbands shirt, my shirt, his hat and my son-laughed it off like no big deal as we had to excuse ourselves to the bathroom. Even with oxi-clean the stain did not come off. This was our 2nd encounter w/ their service. Will not return.

Once again our family had a great dinner at Salmon River Brewery. It truly helped to be able to make reservations ahead of time through Open Table for a party of 7 as they were having to turn people away without reservations. This small business is doing everything it can to survive during this difficult labor shortage and we were impressed in watching the staff stagger seating to accommodate visitors and as to not overwhelm the staff. Great job SRB! We’ll be back and look forward to the quiet fall season!

Love the beer the food is OK service is good. I found out during my trip that salmon river will not allow you to book online parties less than four which I think is ridiculous. Happy hour is kind of a joke a dollar off a couple appetizers

Great patio view of the lake! Service was attentive and friendly. I ordered the carne asada salad - which was filling and delicious. The rest of my family was mostly satisfied with their food, including the Ramen, burger and chicken tenders, though, unless you like large pieces of anchovies, I'd skip the Cesar salad. I have never seen a Cesar salad with large chunks of anchovies throughout the salad. Yuck.
Beers were good, though they could be colder in my opinion. My favorite beer was the Buzz Buzz Porter. All in all, a good experience.

When I said outdoor seating I expected it on the deck above the brewery...not on the outside deck...needs to be made clearer where the table is

Usually I love eating here, but we reserved an outside spot, not top floor, and when we arrived our table was in the roof and the time was very hot and our experience was unconfortable, and only we thought in eating fast and go away. Salads were not fresh, and fried pickles to share not the best. But I think quality wasn’t the best one time but other times I loved it.

A wonderful evening with exciting weather. Our server Jill was exceptional…though the place was rocking busy, she kept a great happy fun attitude, add to that unexpected thunder storms and rain…she scooped us up and moved us indoors without missing a beat! Food was quick and yummy

The atmosphere & service was outstanding!! We ordered the tri tip which really had no flavor, for the price I thought it would be delicious. The Califlower augraten however was delicious!! We also got the French dip and that was also very bland. The French fries were amazing tho! The cod fish n chips, also lacking in flavor. The loaded macaroni and chicken strips were yum!! The view was beautiful, the waitress very kind and attentive!!! ❤️ I would recommend this place but for the macaroni and fries mainly!

The food was not great. My husbands carne Asado steak was almost raw and my salmon was over cooked. For the price of the dinner, I expected more.

Robert is a tremendous meal attendant/ bar tender. He is cordial and kept a close eye on our needs.

For us more mature types, the music volume could be turned down.

Ordered the black and bleu elk burger. Meat did not taste fresh. Server forgot to bring my drink, also forgot sides. Bathroom is poorly kept. Nice views, good beer, but that’s about all.

The restaurant is cool, but the food is just simply not good. We had a group of 7 and nobody really liked what they ordered. Beer cheese for the pretzel was thin and flavorless, the Mac and cheese lacked salt, the burgers were “ok” but severely over cooked (even though we said medium rare), the Thai beef salad dressing was good but the beef was cold and tough, soup was “meh”. The two items we loved were the fried cheese curds and the fried pickles. Staff was lovely, the kitchen just needs to step their game up a lot. Would not recommend this place to eat at, especially with the other options in town.

Everything was really nice...in our cozy igloo
We had the brussel sprouts ...yum....beer soup was a little cold but sort of understandable...since it is a cream soup.
We enjoyed the snow, the wine and quiet atmosphere to visit !
And our waiter seemed to try hard to please...
We'll be back...thank you....
