Emerald Isle you need to find your place. The view from the deck is very nice, yet no one is there looking at it. When we first walked in, we were greeted with loud unfriendly rap music. I know you are a biker friendly bar and your staff seems to dress to that clientele, not always a good look. The... More

It's a touch above a real 'dive' bar, but it is definitely a casual comfortable place to visit. The deck has a fantastic view of Denver and bit of a view of the Cherry Creek Reservoir. Food is very good bar food with Mexican and American options. Beer is cold and tasty as well! Great service, too!

I have been going to Emerald Isle for a few years now, the food has always been ok but nothing to rave about. I have mostly gone there for the patio and a good drink. Went today and had the worst margarita, tasted soapy. So bad we didn't finish.

We arrived about 1:30pm after the lunch crowd had departed. Had our choice of tables on the enclosed patio and had a great view of the snow capped mountains. I ordered Jay's Smothered Burrito Grande and my wife ordered the Fajita Salad with grilled chicken. Both dishes were very good, I really liked the pork green chili. Service was prompt... More

We went there in June and the patio was beautiful! ( view of Mts) we got 2 appetizers and they were great. Chilli cheeses fries were awesome and the nachos were loaded! Very good priced too. The beer selection was pretty good. But the service was slow.

Thank you very much for your very positive review of the Emerald Isle. Service can be slow during our peak season and outdoor restaurants are a real challenge to staff but we continue working on that. Come back and see us soon !!! More

I love their ranch, their service is relaxed, but we love this place! The patio has an amazing view of cherry creek creek park. French fries were amazing!

As other reviewers, I used to really enjoy the food and outdoor patio at this place. Because of the weather, we sat inside which was very sparse, no atmosphere. The food was even more of a disappointment, just not near as good as I remember. I doubt I will go back unless it is just for a beer and a... More

Hi: I am so sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your visit to the Emerald Isle. We have changed the menu slightly and most people seem impressed but obviously we didn't do it right for you. Please stop in for that drink on the deck and ask for a manager. Be sure to tell them Kasey asked you... More

The staff are SUPER NICE. We had appetizers that were decent. More importantly, they kept our glasses full. The outdoor seating offers a gorgeous view of the mountains and Cherry Creek State Park. Place has kind of a rustic feel. Lots of regulars there. I like the location, but be prepared to haul butt onto Parker Road when leaving--speed limit... More
