Loud, unpleasant music greatly detracted from the experience. Great ale.

I didn't end up needing reservations for Sunday brunch before noon. It was quiet and slow, and we were able to sit outside! The view of the mountains is unparalleled. The "beermosa" was great- a perfect pairing with the woodland setting. The food wasn't outstanding- coming from DC, I've had far superior brunch food- but the mountains and beer made up for it. We went back the next day for the complete beer flight and pretzel bites for "brunch" and it was spectacular. One of the best- if not the best- beer flights I've ever had. The pretzel bites with beer cheese were superb- the best appetizer I've ever paired with a beer flight. This place is not to be missed!

We went here for lunch and to listen to some live outdoor music on Labor Day. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. The French bone-in pork chop with a mixed berry and wine reduction served with smashed potatoes and veggies was yummy! Hubby liked the crab cakes, smashed potatoes and jalapeno cornbread.. The beers were good, especially the howling pumpkin! Their growlers are cool with a metal handle and are cheap to refill. We will visit again.

I will definitely be returning to Wild Wolf with my family. Great atmosphere for kids (bouncy castle?!) and lots of outdoor seating. I will even bring the pooch next time--saw several people there with dogs. The beer is GREAT, good food and service was fantastic. Love that they have live music so often. We will be back and bring friends and family with us.

I haven't been to a restaurant in a long time where I felt ingored or like I was an annoyance to the waitress. Not only was she rude, but also charge my card on someone else's bill. There was no consideration for it being our first time there. The specials were not told to us and didn't even ask if we wanted to order dessert.

Great drive along 250 from Charlottesville. Made a reservation for lunch through Open Table the day before. The staff set us up with a great table, sampled 11 of the Wild Wolf beers and enjoyed a tasty lunch!!! Great job... We'll be back.

Having dined here several times now I can say the food is consistently high quality. Excellent pulled pork sandwich! Very good beers also. The wait staff friendly, knowledgable and quick. So nice to have the pleasure of bringing one's dog (outside seating). Wish more places were this good.

Tried brunch twice. Sufficient selection, some nice specialties like cheese grits. Food is good, no one raved. Service is friendly, but the staff is slow to start, and restaurant seems to be posturing for after brunch when the brewery crawling resumes. Like the place, will keep on the list of places to try.

Having moved into the area not far away, we really want this place to succeed. As far as beer goes, IMHO it is the best of the Brew Ridge brews, especially the Alpha Ale. The chef has recently been experimenting with sushi and that has been interesting with some really exceptional results. Each night is a different creation. Their flat bread pizza has been great. Entrees, however, have been hit or miss (really missing, when it is a miss). Last visit, the short ribs were burned beyond edible. They should not have been served in that condition. After being sat down, we had a long wait to be waited on. This was a first for them. So, they have lots more work to do, but we will continue to go for the beer and bar food.

We have great service, the ribs were decent, and the fish and chips were excellent. The best part was the service, our server was attentive, friendly, jovial, and made you feel welcome. I'd definitely visit again and try all of their beers on tap.

We had a great lunch during a weekday and very much enjoyed the menu. If you can, go during the week as it gets crowded on the weekends. Great dessert, bread pudding in bourbon sauce.

Cheerful service. Good turn around time on food order. Comfortable and non pretentious atmosphere. It's my favorite brewery among the 3 located on 151 in Nelson County. Honey Blonde Ale is my favorite.

Seating at Wild Wolf is truly eclectic, as the rooms are small and plenty, or can be outdoors if you wish. The service was attentive without hovering.

Great selection of micro-brewed beer! We had a flight of everything and had a blast picking out our preferred choices. The fried oysters were tasty and the burgers were great! You have to try the fried Oreo cookies a la mode at least once.

To start our service was amazing!! Our waitress, Tracy, was so knowledgeable and friendly. She made us feel relaxed and the center of attention. I had a great time because she made our meal an experience. I also loved every beer we tried. I'm big on breweries and its unusual to like all beers a brewery makes. Try the Area 151. It was my fav.. We are also on a gluten free diet and they had a lot of options that I didn't need to give a laundry list of substitutions or exception to eat. The food was delicious. The night was made better by the blues band playing and us still being able to enjoy our table conversation without having to yell. Sitting on an outdoor patio in December that is heated made our night special.

Beautiful location in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains, Wild Wolf has a ski lodge feel that was exactly what we were looking for on a cold Fall night. We had a group of 9 and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Wide selection of food on the menu, there is something for everyone. 11 of their own beer on tap! Highly recommended.

We had a great time but I fear in the not to distant future it will be impossible to get a table at your establishment. It was a very enjoyable evening and I look forward to doing it again. I love the fact than we can still sit outside even in the winter and enjoy our meal. There were four of us for dinner and each one of us had a great meal, there were no complaints and many compliments. All the workers, from the welcome when we came in the door to our server were friendly and helpful as well as very knowledgeable about the restaurant and the menu. Keep up the great work.

Brews were pretty good, the 2 sampler options are great way to taste all. Nothing stuck out on menu with WOW factor. Ribs are their specialty I wish they marketed that better. Night time ambience was awesome and the live entertainer in outdoor covered area was trying to hard to be artistic with his voice and music and was wrong setting for R&B. need upbeat energetic entertainment, yes it was a wed night but he sung us out of a drinking mood and the bar.

Sandwich or burgers are a great choice...pulled pork, fried chicken and cheeseburgers were all good. Great kid's menu...the 8 mini corn dogs and home made chips was a big hit! Nice play area for the kids while waiting. The enclosed porch seating was nice, covered, but like being outside. Our waitress was great. On leaving I bought a Wild Wolf T shirt and am now a walking ad. Fun night!

BBQ sandwich great! Burger okay and Reuben sandwich was good. Boneless wings really good!
Beer good, especially the pumpkin ale. Our waitress was great but service out of kitchen extremely slow!!! Ordered dessert waited 20-25 minutes and finally told waitress to forget it and bring us our check. Manager on duty was stellar and wanted to know why our experience was bad. It's ashame he's leaving, cause he is awesome! Likely will not return.

My husband and I loved this place on our first visit, but I wasn't quite as impressed this second time. The first time we ate outside, which was lovely. We had the cheese-stuffed jalapenos, which were awesome. This time we went back with a bigger group of friends and ate inside. My beloved peppers were gone, but the bacon-jalapeno cheese fries were a decent substitute. It felt like our food took a really long time -- somewhat understandable since we were a party of nine, but no one ordered anything complicated. My burger was ok, kind of room temperature and the cheese wasn't melted. My husband said the same. Beers were as tasty as before, and our group had a good time. We'll go back, but in a smaller group and with a different order.

Ask for a table away from the front door. The "fan" going on and off every 30 seconds makes it impossible to enjoy the atmosphere. Appetizers were great. Pumpkin beer was great. This area needed a good place to eat; so we hope you'll be around for a long time. Loved that it was pet friendly outside.

Started a girls' weekend here and had a great time. It's a beautiful spot. Our waiter was very pleasant and did a great job. I had the barbeque...which was OK. Wouldn't order it again. However, several others got the shrimp and grits and raved about them. I had dinner envy at that point. I found a beer that I liked...the Honey Ale. I'm a bit of a beer snob but was able to enjoy the Honey Ale.

Great little spot for a casual meal and a cold fresh brew!

We visited Wild Wolf Brewing Company for Sunday Brunch. From the onset, it was a great experience. We were greeted at the door with smiling faces and very friendly "glad to see you" attitudes. We sat outside under the covered patio. The weather was dreary, but it didn't seem to have any affect on us as we were cool and dry! Our waitress was exceptional. We were traveling with my autistic son. He wanted "ice coffee", and even though they didn't have it on the menu, she told him she would be happy to get that for him, and she would make it personally. Talk about service with a smile! We ordered a Bloody Mary, and they were so goood, we ordered another one! I highly recommend them. Our food was perfect as well. Great Place!

We've been several times and it is still a favorite. This night was very crowded and we had a brought a group of five who sat at another table and waited 1 1/2 hours to be served after ordering. We had a few things go wrong...only one set of silverware, no spoons for stirring sugar in iced tea (no sugar either). Luckily we bring our own. We were not checked on after our food was delivered. One meal was undercooked. When our check came, there was no pen to sign and we had to ask other guest for it. I still recommend this restaurant as I believe it's the best in Nelson. Everyone has a bad night once in awhile and it was following the Beer Fest at Devil's Backbone so I think allot of people left there to come to Wild Wolf.
