Cool atmosphere, lots of microbrews and barbecue make this a great place for comfort food and drink. The innovative barbecue sauce, with stuff like figs makes it fit for foodies, too.

It was one of those beautiful Boulder afternoons where the sun was intermittent in the cloudy sky. With a view of the Flatirons from the roof top dining, our food tasted even better. Good / fast service, fair prices made the "farewell" to our freshman son just right. Salmon burgers and fries were a hit and the special fish entree... More

My wife and I had an early lunch here recently. We were seated promptly and given menus. Our waitress described the specials and pointed out the draft beer list which consists of the house brews listed on paper rubber banded to a piece of wood. There are other bottled beers available which are listed in the regular menu. The restaurant... More

The food was exceptionally tender and the ambiance was very very cosy and well designed. Really great atmosphere. Food was very tender and is was great... More

My husband and I had lunch here and really enjoyed sitting on the roof deck. The ambiance is great. My salmon sandwich had a tasty slaw on top that really made the dish. My husband wasn't as happy with his fried chicken on a biscuit (too salty) but overall the experience here was a good one. Tasty cocktails - although... More

The beer list attracted us back to the West End after a revamp of their menu. Beer selections were good although the pours were small (14 oz v a pint, for example). The service was not what it should have been: they forgot drink menus, appetizer plates, one of our beers, etc. Cornbread was tasty but salad was full of... More

Had lunch here while traveling. The wings were very good and had a good beer selection for local microbrews. The service was excellent. Thanks, Jason.

Let's begin with the highlights...the cornbread was fantastic as was our seating outside on their rooftop which was actually pretty cool. I wish the rest of the meal matched the cornbread and the view. Ok, the service was decent too but if you are looking for real barbecue I would skip it. I wasn't overly excited over the menu options... More

We stopped here on our first night in Boulder just because the reviews were so great. We came and it wanted be seated on the rooftop but there was a wait so we decided to have a drink at the bar downstairs and wait. The bartender was not very friendly. We ordered an appetizer and it was awesome we got... More
