Wonderful food served by wonderful staff, accompanied by great local brews. Homemade soups are great; the Philli beef dip sandwich is the BEST I've ever had.

The food was tasty, good quality & reasonably priced but the portions were small. Sitting at the table for a long time before being served definitely made you feel like an outsider as locals seemed to get priority service.

First place we found when we rolled into Golden. Reasonable food and prices, and a very good beer selection. Local ski-town ambiance.

My boyfriend and I were really happy with the selection of delicious local beers to start us off! Followed by the awesome service of the waitress, who was super friendly and unbelievably efficient at her job. The amount of food we got for the price we pay was staggering! I couldn't believe the value. The food was typical greasy pub... More

Started with the calamari - it was subpar. Really heavy and chewy! We immediately regretted not going with the deep fried pickles!! I had a feature wrap which was kind of disappointing - all the ingredients on the feature board were there but, the flavour combination and the way it was prepared was just meh. My yam fries were light... More

From the beer recommendations to the burgers this was a well chosen dinner spot. Service and music complimented the dining experience and made me wish my local was like this.

Is your typical bar, but signs say kids can go in with parents until a certain time. Great service, waiter helped explaining different drink options. Food very good. Were there in early evening, so very quiet
