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!

We went to Mountain Sun Pub to have a beer before a concert at the Boulder Theater. There is a nice selection of beer. We enjoyed an IPA beer. The place was crowded, but we found seats on the side of the wall. Just like other reviewers have said it is a , CASH ONLY place.

Unfortunately the food didn't impress us this time :( , which pretty much was the reason why we went back. The service was not as good as the first time either. Am I facing inconsistency? The beer we tried was really good.

I take all of my out of town visitors here to get the Boulder experience. Best wait staff in town, great menu options (both carnivore and vegetarian friendly) and hands down the best french... More

You will find at this friendly pub and brewery. We meet friends who moved to Colorado here. What a perfect spot to catch up with them. Our server Chris was outstanding and we never felt rushed. Even after paying and tipping, he returned with fresh water.

Visited this pub after a long day in RMNP and it did not disappoint. They allowed my wife and I to try as may beers as we wanted until we found the "right" one. I would have drank 6, but settled on 1. I had a steak special which was so good my kids devoured it and I had to... More
