We looked around and decided to try Main Street and it was a great lunch. The pulled pork and coleslaw was fantastic, and the fresh french fries were exceptional. The people of Cortez are so lucky to have such a great selection of good restaurants.

Many visits to this favorite! The atmosphere is fun and the food is quite good. They don't have a huge menu, but certainly enough that everyone in your party can find something they would like. Definitely a great place if you want to sample their beer and they have a full bar and other fun drinks as well. The wait... More

I've had the opportunity to enjoy the beer menu and appetizers here on several occasions, yet was disappointed to swing by recently on a Thursday for lunch only to find the restaurant closed. I appreciate the need to limit service to maintain a profitable business, yet would have expected this establishment to be open for lunch during the summer months.... More

Let us sit with beer while we decided whether to stay for food. Glad we stayed as the food was quite good for a small town. We had good service and a nice meal on the road.

This place has some of the best wings ever. With that being said, the beer was okay. When the waitress dropped off the check, she didn't say anything to us about needing to pay at the register. We got some swag from the store and looked to ask our waitress to add it to the tab. She completely ignored us... More

This microbrewery and restaurant are the best. Many different microbrews both from bottles as well as on tap. Funny names for the different beers and colorful bottle labels add to the experience. The beers were out of this world imho. The atmosphere was warm, inviting and cozy. The food was absolutely delicious. Two thumbs up!!

We stayed in Cortex the night before we went to Mesa Verde after doing the train to SIngleton. Good selection of beers and a lovely interior, plus they were opened on Sunday.... You will not be disappointed if you stop in for dinner and a beer (or two, or....)

took forever to get served, very young staff, the menu was nice, beer tastym pleasant atmosphere but kids serving us were too busy chatting with fellow staff and neglected guests. Hire older, more experienced bartenders.
