Reads Landing Brewing Company is located in a historic 2 story store front building right along the Mississippi River. With an unobstructed view of the river, you can watch the boaters in the summer and eagles in the winter while enjoying lunch, dinner, or just an afternoon snack.

Our menu offers a select list of locally produced fish, poultry, and meats. Our chef Casey prepares each with a flare that everyone will enjoy. Don't forget to try out sweet potato tots or garlic butter fries. They are fast becoming a favorite!

RLBC is now brewing handcrafted beer on-site with something for everyone. Growlers are also available to take home and share. There is also a nice assortment of craft and commercial brews available by bottle that will be changing often with the seasons. For those who prefer other libations, we have a full bar and wine list too.

We look forward to serving our facebook friends and new friends at the Reads Landing Brewing Company.

  • I stopped by for their sweet potato tots. So yummy. The employees are very kind. Always a fun place to go. The view is beautiful.  more »
  • I also loved the Sweet Potato Tots and the rest of our food was good, along with the service. Had drove the Harley over from Mankato area, for the Scenic Hwy. 61 views of the Mississippi River...  more »
  • Came from out of town. Waited fifteen minutes to order our food and drinks. The waitress was rude, came across very brash, as if she didn’t have time for us. Ten minutes later our drinks came. Fifty five minutes after we were seated, the burgers and kids meal that had been ordered arrived. All burgers came out well done, regardless of the fact that some had been ordered well and some were medium. The chicken nuggets looked like they had been taken directly out of a bag and stuck on a cookie sheet. The saving grace of the meal was the sweet potato tots. they were delicious with ranch, perfectly salted and crispy on the outside. unfortunately the fries were hit or miss. Some were delicious, and some seemed as though they had been sitting for a while. It was a mediocre experience that could have been saved with more attention to detail and better customer service.
  • On a Sunday night few places were open late. We called ahead to find out when Reads Landing Brewing closed and when the kitchen closed. We were told that the kitchen closed at 9 pm. To prevent a misunderstanding, we specifically asked if that meant we could arrive at 9pm and order and they said yes. Great! Our group made the 15 minute drive to RLBC, looking forward to winding down with some good food and craft beer. We arrived at 8:45 pm, in plenty of time to order food, so we thought. We were denied. Apparently they decided to close the kitchen early because they were too busy earlier in the evening. The hostess told us they had wait times up to an hour and the owner decided to quit taking food orders to let the kitchen catch up. We told her that we had called ahead to confirm the last order time to prevent this very thing from happening. She checked with the guy behind the bar, who confirmed that he did take our call, but they were not willing to let us order food. Odd that someone in the business to sell food didn't want to sell it to us that night. Our party of 8 would have easily spent $200 or more, plus tip. We used to love this place but since the sale of this establishment, service has gone downhill. We'll look elsewhere next time.
