For 25 years, The West End Tavern has been Boulder's favorite spot for cold beer and good eats. The Tavern delivers delicious home-style cuisine that will leave you craving more. With juicy burgers, crafted sandwiches and inspired dishes, you'll be back repeatedly! The West End bar is home to 25 taps featuring Colorado's finest breweries, as well as regional favorites, 75 Bourbons & the most knowledgeable staff of bar-keepers in the State. The West End Tavern is the authority on boozy goodness. And if you're not in the mood to tipple, order up an Oskar Blues' B. Stiff Bros. Root Beer, available exclusively at The West End Tavern. Pull up your favorite stool at our bar and find out what's good.

Great wings and cornbread

Visited on a rainy night that made the fireplace that much better. The wings were done perfectly with the just the right amount of crunch and flavor. The ranch sauce is homemade with a generous portion of celery and carrots. The corn bread is served hot from the oven in a cast iron skillet with... read more

The casual bar-like atmosphere belied the quality of the food and service. My husband and I showed up on Mother's Day for our first visit, and now I want to return with friends. The menu is short, but that didn't mean it was easy to choose. The waitstaff is knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful and attentive. Drinks and meal were... More

These guys have a smokehouse in back of the place. So pulled pork was a natural choice for me. So yummy! We did have to wait close to an hour for our guilty pleasure, however. The place was bustling at 7pm on a Friday evening. (But then again, who wants to eat at an empty restaurant?) It had a great... More

We were hungry and tired. They were busy and short-handed. I was ready for disaster, but the food was spectacular - amazing burgers and fries - even the veggie burger rocked! Service was friendly and helpful even though they were short. Can't wait to go back!

We went with family. Most got the bbq pork, which was good...but the chicken & biscuit was really really delish. Not low fat, but worth the calories.

Out of town on business and walking Pearl street. Stopped with coworkers and had good meals. Busy for a Wednesday night, and still had prompt service. Coworker very happy with selection of vegetarian dishes. Reasonably priced.

Of all the places we could have chosen this was the perfect choice! Unique and comfortable environment with a level of cuisine you wouldnt expect from a tavern in a tiny town. The food was next level fabulous, from the deviled eggs to the skillet cornbread. The burgers were out of this world and preprared to perfection and the sides... More

One of our favorite stops several times a year when traveling to Denver, great burgers, ribs and bbq. This time we took along a relative to share in an early dinner and ordered the chicken & biscuit, fried fish and a philly like beef sandwich special. The chicken was over cooked to the point our guest had trouble cutting and... More
