Decently far off the strip (~$30 cab ride). Met up here with Belgianbeergal and her husband to share some beers we had brought. Upscale feeling (unlike the close by big dogs). Service was nice, samples were free. Not horribly smokey or video poker focused. Some TVís. The beer I sampled was decent, although I am sad I missed out on the Oaked Barley Wine. Guest taps looked pretty good (included the Abyss). They do NOT make food anymore.

They stopped serving food but I think it helped them focus on their beers. The 5 standard brews are average but most of the seasonals or specials I have tried have been well above average. Northwest side of town thatís right off 95 if you are making a visit to Mount Charleston and not too far north if visiting Red Rock. Worth the trip if you have the time and a ride.

they no longer serve food but seem to have a symbiotic relationship with the local delivery companies. they do have nine beers on tap. two of which are guest handles (dfh festina peche and stone ruination on my latest trip). there are some pool tables and games if video poker is not your thing. though you drink for free if you play the machines just like in the rest of town. great knowledgeable service.

Tenaya creek is only a brewery now. They have some good beers and a couple of guest taps. The guest taps were dogfish festina peche and deschutes red chair ipa. I like their nut brown ale and the chewbocka was good. They have three pool tables, dart board and a few arcade games. The staff was friendly. Most people bring their own food or order from the pizza joint around the corner. Ask the bartender they have a relationship with the pizza place.

Imperial Stout, Barleywine, IIPA, 6 regular beers and 2 reat guest taps. Big airy place. Unfortunately, the restaurant itself was closed down. However, this is the best brewpub in Vegas hands down in terms of selection. Smoking is allowed and they do have video poker.

(04/2008): Tenaya Creek is located right of Cheyanne Ave near I-95. They have a private lot that is pretty good-sized.
The interior features a lot of stone and woodwork, and the U-shaped bar is near the entrance, with a billiards area between that and the restaurant seating. The brewing equipment is in the rear and is visibile behind glass. They have a flyer advising customers interested in a tour to contact the staff. The bar features video gambling (as pretty much every brewpub does) but without the dark and smoky feel that so many of them have.
Tenaya has 7 beers on draught, 3 of which are seasonals, as well as a guest tap (Deschutes on my visit). Some bottles are available as well but nothing jumped out at me. The beers are available in a sampler for $9. The beers run from Pils to Hefe to Robust Porter and are generally above average. The Robust Porter and Black Widow were both standouts.
The service was good on an early weekday afternoon. The bartender knew the Tenaya beers and the guest beer pretty well.
I did not try any food on this visit.
Overall this place is definitely worth a visit for someone with a car who wants to get away from the mayhem of the Strip for an evening.

Typical modern brewpub in a typical suburban setting. They have both a bar and restaurant area.
Beers are average even though they do try some more aggressive styles like a barley wine.
If you have a car this place may be worth a stop, but I would not go too far out of my way to visit it again.
It has been a couple of years since Iíve been there, so it may have improved since then. If you do go, please post a follow-up review.

Stopped by after work to check out the brews. The place was just bland and gloomy with some shady local cats hanging at the bar. Service was minimal but what was there was o.k. Just an uneventful experience and not worth trying again. Too bad because the barley wine is excellent.

Visited on 12/30/07. No wait to get a table. Interesting place: you enter through a pretty nice bar area, pass through a pool hall of sorts (free games when I was there) until you are seated in some nice, big booths towards the back. Decor is sorta kinda ok, with a nice effort to do marble on the walls. Reminded me of an upscale Elks Lodge. Our waitress was attentive and had a great attitude. The food was so-so. Itís pretty normal in my experience for the food at a brewpub to be better than the beer, but some good brews and uninspired dishes (amazingly bland pizza and a boring steak in our party) tilted the balance towards the beer. Not a bad place, but not your ultimate beer destination.

Stop # 2 of 3 in our Vegas trip. Went on a Saturday afternoon and the place was pretty dead, except for a table or 2 of locals. Nice looking place with a bar right when you walk in and a longer area for table seating beyond that. Video poker at the bar. Didnít eat anything here, but got a sampler of their beers. A couple were fairly decent and a few left a lot to be desired. Their Imperial Stout was actually fairly nice and served on Nitro, I believe, and I quite like the pilsner too despite itís poor ratings. The Bartender was friendly enough, and while the beers where pretty average on the whole, and a bit hit or miss, It was very fairly priced and there were 7 new beers to sample at least.
