Great burgers and better beer!

Even though this is a micro brewery you'll see a lot of families with kids here! They have quite a varied menu, burgers, wraps and the nacho plate with everything is a mountain! A little noisy perhaps but around Boulder that seems to be the norm..

Staff was super friendly and there was a large selection of beer to choose from. The GM was impressively knowledgeable about the beers. The chipotle hummus was delicious and if you get the wings - try a hot/BBQ combo.

This restaurant is very frequently crowded with wait times hovering around 30 minutes if you arrive at popular family dining times. The food is worth the wait and the craft beers are flavorful. Menus are fairly varied, but come here mostly for sandwich and burger fare. Parking can be pretty tight near the entrance, but since the restaurant shares a... More

This place is tucked into the Table Mesa Shopping Center and well worth a visit. February is National Stout month and these fine folks go ALL OUT. Many stouts on tap and new releases almost every Tuesday. Great food and an amiable staff! See you there!!

Good service, great beer. Very relaxed atmosphere that I am grateful for. Food offerings aren't bad and I recommend the black bean chili which hits the spot on a cold, snowy day. I try to go when the crowds have thinned out, not only to get a seat, but also to avoid the noise. It does get very loud in... More

We went to Southern Sun with our daughter and her boyfriend who live in Boulder. The fish and chips were scrumptious, they had a great selection of beer, the atmosphere was fun and casual and very Boulder-y. Great place to take your whole family as they have big tables and lots of room. Highly recommend!

We tried four of their beer offerings and all were spectacular. The Imperial Black IPA was outstanding. Too bad the bar tender did not know the IBUs or much else about the beer. The food, however, was quite poor. The special 'Pork Green Chili' was just fatty chunks of pork with hardly any flavor. The burrito was covered with an... More

What a find! This brew pub rises above the others. Yes, we had a 30 minute wait at 7 pm on a Thursday night but what do you expect in a college town? They let us sample five beers. The three of us all liked one in particular so we ordered a pitcher. Once we got to our table and... More

I went to the Southern Sun for the first time recently and was glad I went. I had their steak sandwich and fries and really enjoyed it. My colleagues had burgers and they raved about them. The service was great and I really liked the atmosphere.

I love this place! The food is consistently good and it has very decent beer. We were very well treated by a friendly staff that constantly checked to see what we needed. The beers are good and I particularly enjoy the Nitro Kind. I look forward to returning for more.
