“Great Patio View!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

The best place downtown Golden to sit with a beer and watch the river. Food and service was average, and we seemed to wait a LONG time for desert (not very good), and then again for the bill.

“Nice Patio”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We arrived in Golden hungry and chose this place because it had a patio that wasn't on the street. The patio is at the back and faces the river. It was interesting to watch people in rafts float by (rather quickly!). The food was average, but filled us up, so that was OK. The wine "list" has two choices: red and white. I guess it's more of a bar than a restaurant and most people who go there probably drink beer.

“Good music”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

The Chantrelles played some great tunes. Service a little slow. Band started a bit late for an old boy like me.

“Your Small Town Club”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Its not in every little town you run through that you have a bar that offers such diversity in events. From Rock N Roll bingo on Mondays to amazing acts playing over the weekends, This place offers you that club atmosphere that you sometimes just crave in the evenings. Feel like going out during the week? They have events every evening, from Open Mic to Open Decks, This place is there to let you have fun and dance the night away. Did i mention there food is decent and not too bad in price
