Good for a nice patio beer. We enjoyed a good IPA watching the sunset. Food looked good...but we sadly were not hungry. This place must rock in the winter skiing time ...

Located near the river is a great feature. Great food, their fish and chips just like British version. It’s more for a younger crowd.

Great meal, super friendly people & good service! Reasonably priced & right on the river overlooking a covered pedestrian bridge in a pedestrian square so no traffic. We sat out on the patio & totally enjoyed the sunset! We will be back for sure!

We just ate at this bar, while passing through Golden, and both loved it. He had the donair, and I had the pork tacos with strawberry salsa. Great atmosphere inside and tables outside. Phenomenal food and friendly staff. Check it out!

As an aging former snowboard bum, this place is utopia. Small, but tasty menu of scratch made food. Taps, bottles, booze... Skis and snowboards nailed up all over the place... Fire pit rolling along outside. What's not to love?
