One of our go to places when in Tahoe. Good looking place with plenty of seating and a nice bar. We have always had great service. Wide selection of solid brew and good food. Enjoyed.

Stopped in over Presidents Day weekend, for lunch. Hostess and servers acted like they were high... bizarre. Slow and not all that friendly. Food was average; there was no Eclipse on tap, but I was able to try a few others. No bottled beer for sale, just growlers. Overall a slight letdown but not a bad place.

Cool little building with a lodge type feel to it. The food was pretty good and they had about a dozen beers on tap including 2 eclipse beers. I got there early so seating at the bar was easy and the bartender was helpful in getting me something to scribble my notes on. As dinner rolled around, the place was packed. I had a chance to talk to Todd for a few minutes and one of the brewers, Eugene. Both were very friendly and answered my questions. Next time Iím in Reno, Iíll look to make the drive out to FiftyFifty.

Sunday afternoon stop in July and once we past there near empty inside seating, I was happy to sit in the warm sun and notice that Eclipse was on the board; no food was ordered, but menu and passing dishes looked pretty tasty; staff was enjoyable except for the obligatory directions for drinking my sampler; beers were all above average IMO and quite tasty, including the Foggy Goggle; after some back and forth the waitress brought me some bonus samples of the just tapped Golden Ale and non-BA Imperial Stout; nice new "old" architecture and overall a great stop on my way to the lake; highly recommended

Overall not a bad pub, I wasnít sold on the food but the service was decent and their beers were very enjoyable. It was busy when I was here on a thursday evening. I look forward to returning when the weather is better and the ski crowd has left.

Stopped by here Monday night on our trek back home. Set in a rustic yet new building, looks slightly upscale for a brewpub. Had six beers listed on tap, but ended up being out of their BA oatmeal stout (the beers were the wit, concentrated evil, IPA, DIPA, and the porter). Not busy when we showed up @ 8:30. Food seemed like it was trying to be a couple steps up from standard pub fare. GF got the fish tacos which were OK, and I got the ahi BLT which was pretty good. Service was good enough, though the waitress knew pretty much nothing about their beers. They were out of my first two choices for t-shirts. The two beers I had were solid enough. If I lived in Truckee I donít know if I could make it my regular haunt, as the DIPA was $7 a pint and the IPA was $6, IIRC. Food was slightly pricey.

Great place just slightly outside of downtown Truckee. I love the beers at FiftyFifty, especially the strong beers and special seasonals. The barrel aged Roundabout Stout is amazing. Food is very good here and the staff is generally friendly. Definitely worth the stop whenever you are in Truckee to see whatís new.

This brew pub had an OK ambiance. The selection of beers was a little limited with only 6 on tap when I was there and two of those were similar versions of their Imperial Stout. The food was good, but a bit expensive as it always seems to be in resort areas.

Friendly staff, good food and great beer. It's never overly crowded and they have a couple TVs with sports. I really enjoy this place and try to make sure I stop in every time I am in North Shore Tahoe. I wish prices were a bit cheaper but it is a resort town. I also would like to see more Eclipse on tap but they usually have at least one barrel aged offering on tap.

Food is good and many of their beers are great. Everything else is lacking; irksome. Disinterested service was the hallmark from the bartender, to the server, and the hostess. I was spending $200 on bottles and glassware and still was made to feel that I was hassling the staff at every turn. One of the glasses I was sent home with had an obvious glass defect and never should have been sold. Make sure you inspect anything you buy before you leave. The restaurant is run like a tourist trap, staff makes zero effort to connect with the customer. Love the Eclipse on draft.
