Good food and beer

Food tastes great and good prices. Seems common for the area but didn't like that it was cash only. Since I was traveling for work I rarely have cash on me. Staff was extremely friendly but they did not check on us to often. Good value for the money. Would go back.

We sat outdoors with 3 small ones and 5 adults. The seating was quite good. The beers were Boulder-City HOP HEAD EXTRAORDINAIRE ,and I'm not a giant hop-head. They did, however, have some more mild brown ales, and the one I had was fine. The food? Nothing wrong with it, but nothing extraordinary. Service outside is a touch slow.

Since I had already eaten earlier in the day, I can only comment on the beer, which ranged from passable to excellent. Stand outs were the Amber- something I'm not usually a fan of- and the very nice assortments of IPAs. Great atmosphere with a huge, cavernous space; not the place for a quiet, sit down pint. Beware the flights!... More

We went to Southern Sun for lunch and a beer. The service was fantastic: prompt and friendly. The server provided a large variety of sizable beer samples for us since we were visiting and unfamiliar with their brews. The food was very good brew pub food (although not greasy) and there was a lot of variety available in the beers... More

If you're looking for a casual place to spend with friends or alone, this is perfect. The burgers were fantastic. The beer was very good - big selection. The paintings on the walls are cool. The service is good and the music is too.

The buffalo wings were awesome. Setting is comfortable, and nice crowd. The service, while nothing great to mention, is reasonable. Foods are reasonably priced. The only shortcoming was, it does not accept credit and that's kind of weird in US

Try the many styles of beer, have a bite, enjoy the patio-mountain view!! The patio is next to the parking lot but after relaxing into your first beer, you won't even notice! Bring cash because they don't take cards.

The only thing I tried that I disliked was the guacamole. They have a great burger, great beer, the best fries I've ever had, and unique black bean vegetarian chili. Love the atmosphere, cozy and you don't feel hurried at all. The waitstaff all help each other out and are attentive without overdoing it.

This restaurant is a good place to eat if you have a crowd. There is an outdoor patio and inside tables are easily pushed together. The noise level was quite high when we visited. There is an extensive beer menu. We ordered blackened chicken sandwiches, which arrived in a fair amount of time. The sandwiches were served with tortilla chips.... More

We were pleasantly surprised that when asked, they gave us a brewery tour on the spot. It was fun to see where the beer we were drinking was brewed. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was hot and good. Nothing really stood out, but all 9 of us had great tasting food that was all different. The... More
