CASH ONLY!! I didn't know this the first time I went there with my local friends. Thankfully they had enough cash to cover for me too. Their FYIPA is one of the most popular ones. I love hoppy beers, but it wasn't hoppy enough for me. No worries. I am fickle so I fell in love with the scotch beer... More

very good and different burgers. They have a very interesting possibility to pay the bill: if you want you can send the money/check by post and not pay that evening at all. The service was also very pleasant and friendly.

Awesome place, really amazingly rich choice of local beers, few of which are outstandingly good. You may taste the beer you'd like and the waiter even encourages you to do so. Food is great, large dishes, good quality, tasty and juicy meat and beef and deserts are wonderful. I'll come back again.

Thanks for the kind words, Erez! Your comments are very timely--February is STOUT MONTH at all the Mountain Sun Pubs! You'll have to come back and try all the new and different stout selections! Last year the "Thin Mint Stout" received rave reviews. You may have to visit us more than once! More

My friends and I came here for a lunch after a day of hiking at Chautauqua Park. The vibe here is kind of hippy, lodge, mother earth, super friendly. I really liked it. There were great paintings on the ceiling, the tables are mostly long tables in the middle of the restaurant, the staff is incredibly friendly. My husband and... More

My boyfriend and I recently visited Boulder for the first time. Multiple locals recommended that we try Southern Sun, which is situated a few minutes away from downtown Boulder, instead of its Mountain Sun location on Pearl Street. We had a short wait on a Sunday night, but we were able to order beers in the waiting area, and there... More

I like the Southern Sun. Good food, good service, but the noise level is intolerable. It's great when you are able to sit outside and enjoy the view without music. Even going early doesn't guarantee being able to have a conversation without raising your voice and leaning in.

Thanks for the kind words about Southern Sun's food & service, Sallie! We not only have the greatest chefs and servers, but also the greatest guests. You're absolutely right, because of the size of the pub and the number of guests at any given time, the noise level can be high. I hope that when the weather is suitable, you'll... More

Sit outside, and enjoy the mountain scenery just beyond - While partaking of not-your-average bar / brewery food and beer.

Burgers, pizza, sandwiches, salads and brew, this is a very popular restaurant. Sometimes it's hard to get seated. Maybe call ahead? Always reliable.
