I have to say the people working here are super nice and very accommodating! It was busy when we got there, but you can go stand back by the bar. They gave us several free beer samples, so we could choose which beer we wanted an entire glass of. Also, very smart of them to do this so people will... More

Very good food and a terrific selection of craft beers. Staff and management are very accommodating and service is friendly and efficient. A real "taste of Boulder." They can be great for takeout, too -- perfect for a party or large group. Good for solo's at the bar and for families, as well.

This is a wonderful place to have lunch and beers with friends. It is a casual atmosphere that you can be yourself. The art work is beautiful and the music is good. Oh, the food is great too!

The food is super fresh and interesting. The beer is always great. My husband loves the FYI IPA beer. What more do you need.

This is a must for any visitor that loves beer! The Mountain Sun IS one of the best spots for tasting great unusual beers as well as trying out some enormously great pub dishes. Don't miss their Nachos! The atmosphere is great and the staff are always very helpful in helping you decide what to choose from their daily menu... More

The Mountain Sun and its sister locations are some of my favorite places to eat in the Boulder area. The food is consistently good and the specials are usually top notch and can be quite varied (ie not all comfort food items). The beer is as good as the best breweries in the area and February is Stout month which... More

If your into healthy food - ok But I wasn't overly impressed with the taste. Place is always busy but think it's more about it having fresh ingredients than that AND taste. To be honest I'm a bit of a food snob so make your own call.

Even though it was 40 degrees out side we sat on their outdoor patio in the warm sun wearing tank tops. We enjoyed the nachos and the wait staff. Love the blackberry and raspberry beer.

Delightful place with good beers and good food. They'll let you taste any of their beers. The prices are reasonable. They only take cash or CHECKS? They have an ATM with a $1 fee OR they will give you an envelope to mail your CHECK when you get home.

Two locations - downtown on Pearl and Table Mesa Southern Sun - with excellent food, kitchen open late, really, really strong beer and specials throughout the year make this place a Boulder cult classic.
