This front-of-house restaurant once allowed beer aficionados to sample such fine products of the nearby Gwinnett Brewery as Gwinnett's Pale Ale, Peabody Pilsner, Dead Redcoat Ale, and the infamous Bunker Hill Brew.[Non-canon 1] The building itself, however, had major damage; a hole large enough to stand in was opened between the kitchen and its on-site Craft and Seasonal brewery. The company hired contractors to come and repair the wall during the first week of November 2077. Until then, staff leading tours of the paired facility were instructed to require all patrons to wear head protection until repairs were complete.
When the Great War struck, survivors stumbled into the restaurant. A few weeks later, looters attacked the building for any and all supplies. Among the survivors, Melissa locked herself in the closet of the restaurant, and a male survivor barred himself in the brewery rooftop computer room. As of 2287, the place is piled high with offal and stands half-demolished by super mutants.[Non-canon 1]
A broken water pipe leads between the Gwinnett Brewery and the restaurant. Entering through the main entrance, there are two can chimes and a monkey alarm. Enemies present include a mutant hound, five super mutants of various levels, and a few mirelurks located in the craft wing. Upon entering, if the player character waits long enough, they will be able to hear the two factions begin to fight each other.
From the lobby, the staircase to the right leads to the bar with one mutant, the staircase directly ahead leads up to a two-tiered dining area, and the staircase to the left leads down to a lower dining room where three mutants and the hound are initially located. Behind the bar is a large window looking into the craft wing area, with a super mutant and a locked door that separates the two areas.
The lower level of the craft wing contains the water pipe that is mentioned in the terminal. This pipe can be taken directly to the main brewery and contains a leveled mirelurk. The area adjacent to the lower dining room and directly below the upper dining area is a bathroom. The kitchen can be accessed from the bathroom as well. It contains a large amount of flammable gas, as well as a hole in the wall leading directly to the lower level of the craft wing.
- Gwinnett Brewery password - On the second floor in the area with the large brewing vats, on a desk near a chemistry station. The password gives access to the brewery terminal.
- Super mutant cage helmet - In the kitchen storage room.
- Super mutant arm guards - In the upstairs booth seat dining area.
- 23 pint glasses scattered around the restaurant.
- When inside the building and asked for his thoughts, MacCready will answer "Been drinking since I was 6. Never looked back" and "Might be able to scrounge up a decent bottle or two while we're here" and a few other comments about super mutants and the brewery. Outside he will mention hearing the name "Gwinnett" in the Capital Wasteland.
- Quests for items inside the restaurant will have a map marker to go inside Gwinnett Brewery then go through the tunnel to Gwinnett Restaurant.
The Gwinnett Restaurant only appears in Fallout 4.

- Fallout 4 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide Collector's Edition p.516: "[18.06] THE GWINNETT RESTAURANT
This front-of-house restaurant allowed beer aficionados to sample such fine products as Gwinnett’s Pale Ale, Peabody Pilsner, Dead Redcoat Ale, and the infamous Bunker Hill Brew. "Give a Man... a Taste of Freedom!" the slogan said. Now the place is piled high with offal and half demolished by Super Mutants. There is a main entrance, as well as a rear entrance (Advanced) for those of a stealthy disposition. The Gwinnett Brewery (Primary Location) can be accessed via the security door and large Mirelurk-infested pipes. If you aren’t competent at hacking, find the Gwinnett Brewery password, but approach from the brewery side, not via the restaurant."
