“Solid bar food and good beer list”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

Solid beer list with a varied menu. Went with a group and liked all of the appetizers. My fish and chips were good, nothing out of the ordinary but the rest of the group seemed to enjoy everything so I would go back and try a different option.

Daily dinner specials are very good, served from 5 pm to 9 pm:
Prime Rib Monday with super baked potatoe, veggies for only $13.95.
Two for Tuesday only $20.00 for a very special menue.
Wednesday is Surf and Turf. Filet with crab legs with rice or mashed potatoes.
Thursday is BBQ. It is super great-------try it and you will agree.
Friday is seafood with many choices. I have had shrimp, salmon, talipia and many others.
Saturday is Chefs Day with great choices. ( I had the eggplant parmijian with spaghetti )
Sunday is Snow Crab Legs with rice and vegetables for two ($20.00)

Best secret is half price wine bottles with all two dinner entrees!!!! And they have a decent wine selection of white and red.

The BAR SCENE is always full and lively, usually watching some sports or news. Well drinks are very reasonably prices.

They have outside dining for summers (when it is not raining).

Try it out, you can not make a mistake; and dinner will not hurt your net worth!!!

“Tasty tavern”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

Not your average tavern. The inside has a long bar that you see when you first walk in. There is a decent sized dining area separated by a wall from the bar. The outside eating area is perfect for cool spring or fall evenings. As for the food it's fantastic. My wife and I shared the irish nachos. Never heard of these so had to try them. Big pile of homemade chips topped with large pieces of in house made corned beef and all your favorite nacho fixings. I had the full order of fish and chips( you can do a half order if your not as hungry). Perfectly breaded fish not to much breading and perfectly crispy. My wife had the meatloaf and she thought it rivaled her best age has had. We plan on going back and trying the prime rib since I've heard so many good things. See you soon Niwot tavern!

“Watched the super bowl game”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

The hamburger and fries were yummy. We watched the Broncos vs Seahawks super bowl game. There was a small crowd. The tavern was decorated with Valentines.

“Good Food!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We enjoy heading down to the Niwot Tavern for their double lobster tails on Sunday and their steak/lobster and prime rib night on different evenings. Easy to get in, fast and great service and nice price for the meal you get!
