Good appetizers, good brewpub beers

Only had soup, appetizers, salad and beer, as we weren't all that hungry. Nuts & berries salad was a little disappointing (too much apple slices, not enough of everything else), but soups and appetizers were very good, as were the beers brewed on-site. Somewhat pricey given what we ordered, but... read more

Great beer, great food! We had the chicken sandwich with blue cheese and wing sauce on it and the hamburger with their homemade green chili on it. The green chili had just enough spice to wake up your mouth without being too hot. Both came with tons of french fries. We had the same thing both days because we liked... More

I just had soup and a salad and neither was anything I would order again. This was my first time eating there and I would probably go back for some beer and appetizers. We were looking for a brewery and the beer was good.

There are a lot of good places to eat in Idaho Springs but Tommyknocker seems to have become a favorite place for the family. We had been in the car traveling for over 5 hours and needed a break. We stopped to eat and the family chose Tommyknocker's....again. Well, the food was good, as usual, and the staff was good... More

Heading back from a day of skiing in Summit County? You can't do better than Tommyknockers. The wings, the beer, the ambiance of Idaho Springs, all combine to make it the perfect post skiing pit stop. The drive back from Summit can be arduous to say the least but Tommyknockers is nicely located between Denver/ Boulder and Summit county. I... More

Great food, great beer, snotty staff. Our waitress was visibly annoyed with us while ordering, and didn't get my order right (on purpose?). Also got attitude when we bought beer to go. Both myself and my 32 year old partner with gray hair got carded even though he was the buyer (not me), and we hadn't been carded during our... More

We stopped in for lunch with friends - 11 of us total. Melody served us and was fantastic! Attentive but not hovering, prompt to get what we needed, friendly, remembered all our orders. All the things that make a server outstanding. Our fellow diners were satisfied with their meals and the pricing was reasonable. The only criticism I would have... More

I knew of Idaho Springs from the 1969 Robert Redford flick Downhill Racer, and as a place to pull off I-70 on the way to Summit County when the traffic gets retarded. But this was my first visit to Tommyknockers, and my second Colorado brew pub in two days (the first was in Boulder). I sat down, ordering a pint... More

We have eaten here sever times. The beer is good and there is a wide variety for all tastes. The food is very good for this type of establishment. The service has been good each visit.
