Nevada City Ale House and Family Restaurant

Jernigan’s features fresh, draft beers, delicious handmade food and sports on our big screens.


We always have 13 craft beers on tap, including root beer.


We believe great food starts with high-quality, locally-sourced ingredients.


Watch baseball, football, basketball, hockey and more on our big screens.

Come find our casual, neighborhood gathering place, enjoy a great meal, see a game or raise a glass. Check out our Wednesday Pint Nights from 5:30pm to closing. During Football Season, see us for Monday Night Football.

At Jernigan’s, we believe good food starts with good ingredients. Our beef is grass-fed, American Wagyu—hormone and anitibiotic free. We grind our beef in-house daily for the freshest burgers in town. We also serve Niman Ranch Pork, Mary’s Free Range Chicken, and Beeler’s Uncured Thick-Cut Bacon. We get seasonal produce from local farms as often as possible and all of our bread is from Truckee Sourdough Company. Our dressings and Aiolis are made in-house, along with our beer batter and pretty much everything else! Jernigan’s offers quality you can taste.
