During a roadtrip, we got snowed in and spend a couple of days in Ouray. At night we visited the Ouray brewery and had a great time. Good beers and excellent service. We enjoyed the swinging chairs at the bar (definitely a photo-op). The rooftop was not open due to the snow, but this would be a perfect spot to... More

Great brewery and good food, what else is there? Rooftop dining compliments the small bar along with swind chairs at the bar. Nice staff, very polite.

Although we did not eat at the Ouray Brewery we spent a couple of nice afternoons enjoying their beer. I especially liked the San Juan IPA and Wendy loved the Box Canyon Brown. The roof deck is a great place to enjoy your brew, get out of the rain and watch people on the street. A definite stop for anyone... More

Great folks, good beer and very good food. Nothing like the view of Ouray from the 3rd floor deck! And they are building on! We will be back!

First time in Ouray. We stopped for lunch during a motorcycle ride of the Million-Dollar Highway. The rooftop seating was definitely a draw as we tried to figure out where to eat. The town of Ouray is beautiful and the rooftop seating allows you to enjoy it. The beer selection is good and the burger I had was about the... More

This is a great place to stop and grab something quick and delicious to eat. It has a large selection of in house crafted beers that are fun to try with a sampler. The food was great and I would recommend stopping in and swinging into the bar on four of their suspended swing chairs that take you right to... More

The restaurant was packed and our group of 5 was seated at a relatively small table upstairs. The restaurant was short staffed resulting in slow service; food was overpriced ($7 for a very small "bowl" of ham and bean soup). There are much better options in Ouray.

Sat on the roof top area and watched what was happening in town as we ate our salad and had a beverage. Fun place for our lunch stop!

Great establishment! Personally tried the Box Canyon Brown, 550 Red, and the Stout. All great but Stout was my favorite. The Southwest Burger was great and the wife loved the Buffalo chicken salad. The buffalo tenders were a good appetizer! Service was friendly, accommodating and polite. Great down to earth atmosphere. Overall great experience that I wod recommend to anyone.

We went for lunch on a beautiful fall day in October. We were late eating and sat on the upstairs patio. Suddenly it became overcrowded and since you order at the bar the patrons waiting were in the way and noisy. Still we enjoyed the beer and the view. We ordered the bratwurst, I think they forgot the chips and... More
