Great Food, friendly service, open atmosphere and excellent BEER selection! I'm glad we stopped in! We had the wings and potato balls for apps.... The wings were OK. The Potato balls were excellent. Fist Tacos for dinner were very fresh and delicious. Will def. go back when I'm in Boulder.

A friend recommended Walnut Brewery to us and we're sure glad they did. We were a party of 6 ranging in age from 8 to 73 and we all loved this place. This will be our go to restaurant whenever we pass through Boulder!

We stopped by after an evening meal and walk around Downtown Boulder as this was near our hotel. Didn't eat, but the beer was nothing special. Nice artwork for labels/t-shirts though. Service acceptable.

I tried bison for the first time - and the bison flank steak salad was cooked to order and delicious. I loved the interior of this restaurant. Service was good. Drink refills were not hard to get. Great location in downtown Boulder. Reasonably priced for lunch.

We stopped here for lunch on a college visit to UC Boulder and it was a great choice. There was a huge selection of beer and a wide variety of food to choose from. Our favorites were the blackened fish tacos and the soft pretzel appetizer. We will definitely return often if our son goes to college in Boulder!

Good brews at reasonable prices.. Great menu with lots of lunch / dinner options including several Bison choices. I had the Bison steak salad which was great! Discount parking garage across the street and the Pearl street outdoor market is only a few steps away.

We went for dinner while in Boulder for a couple of days on the hotel's recommendation. Food was very good, but the beer is not cold enough for me. It was a hot day and I wanted a cold beer and it was just mildly cold. Had the chicken mac and cheese. Yummy.

Great downtown Boulder restaurant. The IPA on tap is awesome. The service is incredible and everyone is really nice. Bathrooms could use a facelift, but overall, I would go back. Lots and lots of TV's for watching sports. Casual atmosphere.

Thank Liza C
