My son in law was visiting from California and had a recommendation from a friend for this place. We stopped in for a bite and a beer after wandering the Pearl Street mall. We had quite a wait (20 minutes) but they took Tims number and said they'd text when our table came available. Because we had a wait for... More

Great local beers and excellent service. While I wouldn't come back for the food, I'm definitely back for the atmosphere.

Pearl Street is great for "people watching," isn't it? I'm so glad you enjoyed our beers while soaking in the sun and atmosphere! Providing good pub food is one of our highest priorities, and I'm sorry that you were served a meal that didn't live up to our standards. Please know that our well-trained servers are always more than happy... More

Had a couple of beers here on a date. The selection is great. Atmosphere can get kind of busy and noisy. We didn't try any food so can't comment on that. I think this is a great go to bar. The locals seem to hang out here.

This is one of my favorite restaurants ever. I always take out-of-town visitors here for the atmosphere and delicious burgers. There is often a wait, but it is worth it. The waiters share tables, so the service is fast, excellent, and friendly. Good beer. Cash only.

A group of young people and myself went out to this restaurant on a cold night and had a wonderful night of burgers, beer, wine and great atmosphere. It was cheap as chips and was full of other merrymakers - would go again.

We stopped in soon after arriving to town and we're greeted by super friendly staff. The burgers and fries were tasty and we sampled from the long list of homemade brews before selecting. The atmosphere was cozy and friendly. We'll definitely go back!

My sister and I stopped here on a Tuesday night. The place was packed (and our server told us this was a 'moderate' night). To get a table, you have to walk up to the bar and put in your name. We waited in the back and a server came to ask if we had our name on the list... More

If I'm in Boulder I always stop for a beer at least and food if I'm hungry. The Date Night burger OR optional chicken sandwich, depending on how you're feeling, is the best flavor combination in the world with poblano pepper, goat cheese, date puree and apple smoked bacon.
