The staff made sure we sampled the different beers before we committed to just one. The steak sandwich that I had was absolutely incredible! The quesadillas were huge and tasted fantastic! A definite must go in Boulder!

A wide variety of Ales (some quite good) and a very friendly and knowledgeable waiter (Casey). The layout, new age/bohemian decor and American menu completely defy the claim that this is an "English Pub", but an ok place.

We stopped by on our way through Boulder. The staff was awesome - very friendly with free fries & beer samples. Yummy food, feel of a local place. Highly recommend.

As others have pointed out, this place is more of a bar than an eatery. When we arrived there was no wait; by the time we left the wait was at least 30 minutes, and I am not sure why. The bloody marys were spicy, but more ice than drink. Beers were good and selection varied, but that was as... More

The beers were good but not outstanding. Wait staff very attentive and knew how to describe the various beers they produced. Old building = nice ambiance. Also, a nice place to watch people both inside the facility and walking by on the side-walk. BTW: they don't take credit cards .... kind of strange in a tourist town

Wife and I went here for lunch and beer samplers last month. The food was good and prepared just how we'd asked. The beer was also very good. Annapurna was the only one I didn't care for. Mountain Sun FYIPA and XXX Pale Ale were both excellent. I'd go back if in the area again!

The Kolsch beer on tap is comparable to Germany's. If you enjoy different beers on tap, this is the place for you. The wait staff was helpful and friendly-- and available. We had appetizers. The Green Onion Hummus, served with bread and tortilla chips, was tasty. The men enjoyed the Cheesy Fries with their beers. This place seemed to be... More

The beer was great and the servers really helpful in making suggestions. The samplers are huge. Food was good. We had great service between all the servers coming by. Only negative is the cash-only aspect. It was a challenge to get enough together between our party of 4 after a big dinner and several beers each. I wish we were... More

I went here with colleagues despite not really being a beer drinker. However, when confronted with a choice between really bad wine or really good beer... We had to wait for a table which was lucky because that left us standing at the bar where we had plenty of time to figure out what to order. The staff are incredibly... More

Typical run of the mill joint. Food is ok. Don't take credit cards though which would be a deciding factor in eating there for me again. Beer is good.
