This place was so small and cozy. The people were very friendly and the beer and food top notch. It doesn't look like much when you come in from the back, but it really is a hidden gem. The fries alone are worth going.

We had a pretty good meal here. Our server was quirky and enhanced the meal. It's basic pub food with gourmet touches. I preferred the Tomboy Tavern, but this was also a good option if you want to eat in town. It's very casual and reservations are essential. It was a perfect place to take kids - plenty of choices...

We went twice because we enjoyed the food immensely. The drinks list is awesome and the atmosphere is really fun. It's also a great place to watch sports if you're into that because they have about five TVs. They brew their own beer in the basement and I'd suggest the coffee porter because it's amazing. However, we had the same... More

Smugglers is delicious, they have everything from healthy satisfying salads to juicy decadent burgers and fries. I tried 10 of their beers (sampler sized!) and they were all really good.

This place was amazing! Steaks and burgers are the best I've ever seen, and I had their side house salad and lemon risotto which, after four days of nothing but fried stuff, was delicious! The tater tots are great as an app as well as the tempura broccolini and calamari. There's that fried stuff again. Fun cocktails and warm atmosphere.... More

My wife and I ordered the BlackBerry wheat and the road rash red beers along with Colorado bbq wings and tempura brocollini. We were at the restaurant around 430 (not very busy) and drinks took about 10min, and the food took about 40 min. They came by several times to say the wings take some extra time because we do...

This is one of a couple good local breweries. They have a nice extensive draft list and at least half of the beers should be considered very good. The bar tenders are very friendly and will strike of a conversation that will make you feel appreciated and well taken care of. The food is pretty good although I will admits... More

Ok. I only gave them 2 stars because the beer was good. So. The bar was completely full. Had to sit at a table DURING happy hour. I asked for happy hour prices. Was told happy hour only applies to patrons ACTIVELY SITTING AT THE BAR. I'm a military combat veteran and they still would not give me happy hour... More

Best staff in town. Good beers. Full bar. Large menu. Happy Hour limited to the small number of bar seats.
