This restaurant is always a family favorite. There are a lot of choices for beer and food, including kid friendly nachos.

Had dinner here during UC Welcome Week. The place was bustling with tons of people and we had such fun! Great free tastes at the bar of the excellent selection of beer on tap. Delicious burgers, including buffalo! Lots of fun, friendly staff who worked well under crazy-busy conditions!

We came here based off of a recommendation from our Airbnb host. We had already eaten, but decided to try their beer. It was really good and unique options. Wonderful service! We enjoyed sitting at the outdoor bar area.

Busy spot on a Sunday afternoon. Had a very short wait which was at the bar and included free beer tastings. I enjoyed the vegetarian burrito - delicious and so big you had to eat it with a fork and knife. Cash only!

I always like to try local beers when traveling. The server asked me what types of beer I like and brought me appropriate samples so I could choose what I want. Service was great--courtesy and prompt. The menu has a wide variety of options, including several for vegetarians. My spinach salad was fresh with good quality produce. The black bean... More

WOW! We found this Brew Pub listed on Trip advisor (I think)... When we arrived the place was packed and we weren't sure we wanted to wait for a table.... While we were about to walk out, the hostess said: You can have free beer while you wait!!! Enough said! Great beer, food, and the most friendly staff of people... More

I love this restaurant! It is not quiet place, but there is something about the hamburgers and fries and their homemade beers that just appeals to me. If the students are in town the place will be very crowded and you may have to wait at the bar for a table. The service is always excellent.

Stopped in on a Saturday afternoon - arrived to a packed house with a group of 5. Went back to the bar and enjoyed a beer tasting - we worked our way through the selections and settled on pints of IPA, cider and some mixed drinks. Frenetic energy with everyone paying attention and looking to help the customers. It is... More

Mountain Sun has become a bit of a Boulder iconic place to eat. Great craft beers, and solid delicious American fare. The staff ore delightful, and obviously happy to be working there. Easy to get to, and a great place to eat and drink after a stroll on the Pearl Street Mall. A great American Boulder eatery!

Thank William S
