Great Brew Pub

Stopped here for a microbrew while visiting Boulder. The servers were friendly, and the music mix was exactly our style, which made the ambiance all the better. Would visit again when in Boulder

Service was great. wait staff was fun and friendly. Food and beer were great. We had lots of room on a Monday night in June. I really liked the historical building and the layout of the restaurant.

We have been going to the Walnut Brewery since 1995. It is a reliable brewery with great food. When we are in Boulder, it is a must to go to the Walnut!

The Walnut Brewery has been around since the dawn of brewpubs as we know them today - on the one hand, it takes a lot of effort to stay in Boulder as a restaurant, i.e., if you aren't good, you don't last long - the flip side is that while staying power is important, it is not the end all,...

There were 3 of us. We chose to sit outside and wanted a table underneath the awning. When we went inside to ask for menu and service, she told us to sit at a clean table that wasn't under the awning. (It was raining off and on). Was really put out that a table had to be cleaned. Waited even... More

The beer menu is extensive. The wait person helped in the selection after listening to what I like and even bright a couple samples. The food was good. Great soup of the day. I'd eat there again!

Had dinner there recently. Three of us, a great meal of bar food, nothing fancy, but surely quite great food. I had the fish tacos which were quite plentiful and perfectly done. It was as if this place had been in business for a long time and had painstakingly taken the time to get each dish they offered just right.... More

Even though we are not big on microbrews this place was excellent! Had the chicken nachos to begin lunch and they were quite simply the best we have ever had. Served on a large tray so that every nacho chip is smothered in cheese and toppings! Finished that off with a juicy all-American cheese burger that was delicious and hit... More

Very good brew pub food. They let me sample a couple beers and I really liked them both. Great service. Would go back when in town next year. Was recommended by locals over several other brew pubs in the area.
