Nice atmosphere

Great place to get a brew after skiing. There is a surly bartender--be ready! All other staff were super friendly. Food was good too. Trivia night (Tues) was super fun--get there early for a seat!

I would certainly come back... More

Stopped by at the Golden Taps on whim during an impromptu visit to Golden. The service was friendly and quick and the food was surprisingly very good. We had a wide variety of dishes and all of them were fresh, hot and tasty. The beer on tap was excellent too. Prices were reasonable. Would definitely go there agin.

We stopped on a long drive from Kamloops to Edmonton hoping for an average meal...it was far from average! My husband had the beef taco special with a little soup and I had a Call burger with Caesar salad. Everything tasted like it was made right there. Nothing required extra seasoning. Our server was friendly and attentive. Because we were... More

I especially enjoyed the Red Roof Cider. Had the combo platter and when he dropped it off he says good luck lady.

I arrived in Golden to visit a friend right in time for Canada day 2015. Besides the street vendors, the displace of old vehicles and hot rods, colorful clothing and a very hot sunny day next to the Kicking Horse river, we stopped in to the pub for a lunch break. Okay the food was good but the rather punkish... More
