Very busy and loud, servers are very nice, and the food came quickly... however the pulled pork platter was very fatty but nice taste.

Awesome pub food, holy cow! Paired the burnt ends with skillet cornbread. Made in heaven. Moved on the the brisket and cheddar sandwich and others split a chicken and biscuit sandwich. All around, very, very impressed. Staff friendly and courteous. Don't miss it if you're in Boulder. Will be back!

Let me first say to be fair that we were VERY happy to eat at the West End last night. It was 10:00 on a Sunday night, we were starving and our options were very limited. We were very happy to find the West End and our meal was satisfactory. With that said, it wasn't special enough to warrant a... More

This was a nice place on a main road, three floors total. We ate on the top floor outside, and there was a breeze, so it was nice. The food was great, and our server was great, too.

We stopped in the West End Tavern for happy hour.Although we did not have dinner we ordered a cup of pork green chili and it was excellent.Coming off a busy Pearl Street the tavern was a very comfortable and relaxing place for happy hour and Palmer the bartender made it all the better

Visited West End Tavern for lunch. Limited menu. Tired and worn building. Hoping for view from rooftop deck. Nothing but buildings in the way of any real view. Food was average at best. Probably a good place for a drink but we were not impressed.

Pearl Street is a really happening one with loads of dining options with wonderful patios. However, this place boasts of mountain views from its rooftop patio! A perfect combination of great food, drinks, downtown scene and a beautiful view of the Flatirons!

The West End Tavern has been Boulder's favorite spot for cold beer and good eats since 1987. The Tavern brings you a menu of delicious home-style American cuisine, while the West End bar is THE local authority on boozy goodness. Pull up your favorite stool or cozy into the best booth and find out what's good.
