This is a large place in a beautiful setting. Plenty of parking. Not five minutes after I sat down, one of the brewers came out to the bar and said, "Come smell the beer!" So four of us dutifully trundled into the brewery to inhale the malty goodness of the boil. Nice appetizer for a tasty lunch and plenty of unique beers I hadn’t had before. Worth the trip.

Was here with the family while visiting my sister upon her recommendation. Great atmosphere, awesome location, be it a bit in the middle of no where, it’s on the Route 151 crawl way out. Definitely worth the trip. Beer was competitively priced. Food, on the other hand, was not. Sandwiches were reasonable, but most of the entrees were priced relatively high. Price withstanding, the place was pretty awesome. Large space with tons of mounts in a gorgeous setting that even a torrential downpour couldn’t dampen. Well, figuratively at least. Beer was well executed. The IPA was solid, though the Ichabod Crandall and the Rauchbier were the standouts. I had the pulled pork which wasn’t bad, while my wife had the espresso rubbed ribeye, which was pretty sold, though probably not worth the $30 price tag associated. The service was excellent. The place was packed an we never felt as if we were being neglected. Will definitely return.

Worth the trip just for the scenery alone. The 180 degree view of the blue ridge mountains from the patio has to rank as one of the best vistas offered by a brewpub. The building itself is pretty cavernous. The ambiance is not unlike a refurbished ski lodge. Sort of dark, lots of wood and taxidermy. The service was prompt during my Saturday lunchtime visit. 12 Devils Backbone beers were on offer at reasonable prices. The food’s solid pub fare. Perfectly acceptable though certainly not life-affirming in quality. Prices were fair. Overall, a must-visit stop if you’re in the area. I’ll definitely be back.

Not familiar with the area at all but this place is out of the way and off the path. That being said, I was really glad we stopped here. Huge parking lot, looks like they have outdoor concerts there with local music. Cornhole/baggo outside....with picnic tables... cool. Great view of the mountains! The building looks like a hunting lodge. Good size bar. Glasses, shirts and others gifts available. Outside deck seating with a outside fireplace... Pretty chill outside. Dogs welcome, and they have a little jack russel terrier who is cool dog. Some old school blues music was on. Server was friendly and fast. Dozen or so beers on tap all pretty good. Food menu has a lot of options with a variance in price. I had a sandwhich which was good. Overall, this was a cool place and hope to make it back. Well worth the detour we took to stop in

Very good beer selection. There’s always at least one that will fit your palate. Food could be improved. The menu looks better than what actually comes to the table. Service is good.

Headed on down to the Devils Backbone from a house we were staying at the Wintergreen resort area. There is a lot of parking - probably far more parking than the actual brewpub could ever support, lots of space. Place was fairly crowded but we were able to sit in a nice fireplace and space heater heated covered outdoor area. Servers were very chipper, and easy to talk with.

Lots of beers available from them, so it was good to be able to try many of their brewpub only brews. Food came out pretty promptly. Burger was HUGE, so it made up for the slightly over-salted (at least for me) fries that came with them.

Went there a second time two days later and the place was busy, even for roughly 4:00pm, but still got seated immediately in the covered patio. Service was quick. One addendum to this that other reviewers have noted - no one in the group of 8 (both with Verizon and AT&T) had cell signals. It’s dead. There isn’t any free wi-fi available, something that at least Wild Wolf provided just down the street. Not a deal breaker, but virtually impossible to check-in or write reviews on the fly when there.

Nice looking place. Hunting lodge feel. The service was fine, friendly and seemed knowledgeable. We didn’t eat, but the food menu looked interesting, though a little pricey. Solid brewpub.

Beautiful building - post & beam construction and high ceiling gives it a mountain lodge feel, which I guess it is. Staff very friendly and knowledgable. Service was kinda slow - I thought the meal would arrive before my 1st beer. My wife tried the sampler and the beers were warm (this is a general problem with beer samplers). No problem with the food - pretty good pub fare. Overall nice place that I hope to return to.

Stopped in for lunch on a Sunday. It’s a BIG place. Really goes for the lodge theme (compete with tons of taxidermied animals on the walls.) Sat at the bar which is kind of hidden and a little hard to get to. They run a full restaurant on top of the beer but the food is really pretty expensive. A good selection beers, the regulars and some specialties. For the most part nothing aside from solidly done standards. Lagers, ales, wheats in multiples. But they did have a black beliner weiss which was awesome! Service was a bit slow and I watched as a few tables seemed to get ignored after getting their waters. But everyone was friendly and there was a good, diverse crowd. Nothing I’m dying to go back for unless I’m in the area already.

It started off well. Beautiful ski chalet type building, gorgeous scenery, very good hefe but it went downhill quickly mainly to a lack of air conditioning. It’s already the hottest summer in existence but by the time we left the thermostat was at 85 degrees. By the ends I just wanted to get the hell out of there which kind affects one’s ability to rate a place. That being said I also wasn’t feeling the gas station chic the bartenders were forced to wear. Why dress your employees in something that no one but helroin addled hipsters could look good in? Also no cell service in the area So plan accordingly.
