Our beers were served with a greater than 2" head of foam. When the beer settled I asked the bartender to fill the glasses up as I wanted to buy a full glass of beer, not one 1/3 empty. She scowled, took the beers, put a barely noticeable dash in, and returned the still 1/3 empty glasses to us with... More

I had been here before and had a bad dinner experience on a Sunday. Came for happy hour during the week, place was not busy. Stood and waited for host who finally greeted me and did a good job. Waitress was sloppily dressed and very unhappy. Ordered some food and drink. Drink came and after 20 minutes asked about food... More

This a long-time Boulder standby. It serves basic good food. There is even a section on the menu labeled "Comfort Plates". Don't go expecting a gourmet meal. You can expect good food, including a couple of daily specials. I have a problem with the fact that they have the same menu for lunch and dinner - and the same prices.... More

Stopped here for lunch on a recent Saturday with three companions. The pub is located in a strip mall, there is plenty of parking around it. The location is not very promising at first glance but the restaurant is ok inside and has a great patio in the back if you want to be outside and get away from the... More

We eat a few times a year at the Southside Murphy's. It is convenient and the food is decent. The place is always busy, which is a good sign. The service can be very good or just plain invisible. Nice ambiance and a nice patio. The only reason for 3 stars is that it is a bit overpriced for what... More

Went to this place while I was waiting for my car to be repaired. Didn't expect much, but food was excellent. Had the best steak salad I've ever had, although the steak was a little tough - think I'll order it without the meat next time. Iced tea was brewed - I hate when they give you the instant stuff....

the sandwich was alright tasting . nothing to fancy , if none of the restaurants in the shopping complex are open then this is a very good last resort instead of driving around .

What I would consider your local yocal bar. A lot of people enjoy the place and the food is typical bar food. I enjoy the French dip.

There aren't many places to eat in South Boulder but this is my favorite. Food is good, service is good. It can get loud when full. I want to try their Sunday brunch which is supposed to be good.

We had five in our party and the booths were comfortable, the drinks cheap (It must have been an extended happy hour because we were there late on a Saturday) The food is comfort food. I had a burrito so packed with goodies that I saved half for lunch the next day. The ambiance is like a bar but we... More
