We had a good dinner with chili and a burrito and lots of fun watching the other guests. The waitresses were nice and attentive. The atmosphere was laid back.

Stopped by for lunch while in Boulder. They have traditional bar type food with a college town feel. House brewed beer was delicious.

I think their South Boulder location may be able to manage the size. I do. It know the policy of the pub on large groups though. It is cash only so you will need a wad of bills or a local check.

They only take cash so I am guessing they do not sell gift cards. Try Avery brewery or Fate brewery that may sell gift cards
