This was a friendly place and we sat outside on the street side seats and watched the world go by. Delicious food. Highly recommended and gluten free options are sufficiently vast also.

This bar had a warm and comfortable atmosphere - reminded me of some of my favorite haunts in college. Unfortunately, the roof top patio was not open for our party of nine, but we split up and made do. The food was pretty ok -...but the casual atmosphere and super-friendly staff made it a perfect stop in Old Colorado City. Many of the stores were closed on Sunday night, though - so if you want to do the walk-around, do so before dinner. The burgers were good, the schnitzel only OK. Plenty for kids to eat, and a lot of variety on the beer scene.More

Nice view to eat on the 2nd floor covered patio/balcony. It was fun watching people walk up and down the street. I had a lovely shrimp salad - really good. My husband had a sandwich, which he said was "okay."

I was so impressed that i wanted to write a review! We went there for my sons Graduation Dinner celebration and the Manager Krista was beyond nice and happy to help me make it happen and she did!! We had 14 people and they had...to rearrange tables and move things around so that we could all sit together and it worked out perfect and they didn't have to do that because they were plenty busy and they were happy to help! So thank you to Krista and the waitress who gave us excellent service along with everyone else working that evening! Its in a charming part of COS and a cute place and the food was great!! I highly recommend this place and I dont usually but I felt this is the best way to show my appreciation and I appreciate when people give honest reviews to help others by giving a real description on what type of place it is instead of just choosing by a picture! Also it was nice to not have it be a formal atmosphere we did not want that it was very casual but with great service and standards and quality food, and clean!More

The service was very friendly. I liked the chicken wings with maple bacon dry rub and home made blue cheese dressing. My husband's chicken sandwich was a little dry and flavorless & the fries weren't great.

Based on rating and reviews was expecting more. Buffalo burger was dry. Will say our server was great but can’t recommend the food.

This was a good pub and restaurant. A few things on my order were incorrect but the staff quickly fixed our issues. I ordered wings, a burger and fries. The food was very good. My burger was cooked perfectly and the fries were amazing. The...staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We ordered one drink called The Rocky Mountain mule, and the drink was excellent. I highly recommend this pub, whether you are wanting a drink, food or both.More

Our son had been here before and we were glad he did. The food was again, lovely, all freshly prepared. We had fish and chips, again, and the fish was cooked in the same way as in The British Food Co in Colorado Springs, just...as we like it. Servers were attentive but not over the top. We had a relaxed meal at a very competitive price before heading home. Another local eatery without the concrete and chromium of some of the more expensive establishments. Would certainly return, as we would to Boulder, a delightful city.More

My wife and I couldn’t find a place to have lunch and before leaving the area, we tried Thunder and Buttons. The service was top notch and we had the Elk Chili and Chipotle Tomato Garlic soup along with salads. The food was better than...some 4 Star restaurants we’ve tried. Highly recommend you experience this gem!More

Located in Old Colorado Springs, this restaurant is hidden in the middle of a street full of artisan and boutique shops. It's easy to miss if no one is sitting outside on the patio. But once inside, you know you've arrived. The walls are filled...with "Best Of..." awards from many years. The food is fresh and absolutely delicious.More
