We really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere, great beer and pub food! The service was excellent, and they remembered us after the first visit. Walleye fingers, cheese curds, Hillbilly Philly, Buffalo wings, Walleye sandwich, and the daily soups were GREAT! A fine selection of beers,...More

Very good variety on the menu which was good because there were 9 of us. Some people got salads, some got burgers and I had their walleye sandwich. Everyone said their food was good as was mine.

We've stopped at Boulder Beer Bar for lunch a few times while biking the trails. Try the Walleye sandwich, it's fantastic. The Chili and Burgers are also really good. We always sit out on the "porch" so it's like eating outside, but without the bugs....More

Located near downtown BJC. Awesome pulled pork sandwich and the hamburger was second to none. Service was great, and quick.

We ate here while passing through Boulder Junction. The food was very good. They did the little things well, like the flavor of the cheese on the nachos and the perfectly cooked sweet potato fries. We'll stop here again when we're in the area again.

Nicely hand made burger on a great roll. Excellent steak salad with plenti of greens but could use more veggies and and extra dollar for blue cheese dressing was not at all worth it. Great service.

Decent food by northwoods standards. However, they charge for each refill on soft drinks, and they are not cheap. That's a deal breaker in my book given how little they pay for it and how much they charge.More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. We apologize if our drink menu was not readily available to you during your visit, as it does state above the soft drink section that we do indeed charge for refills. Many of our sodas...More

Boulder Junction was hopping when we went. A rainy day in the north woods forces everybody in to the town to shop/eat. We stopped at Boulder Beer Bar at about 1:30 on a Thursday afternoon for lunch. The two waitresses were so overwhelmed they could...More
