We stopped in here for a quick bite and beer after shopping. It did the job but I wasn't a big fan of the overdone brewery ambience (see: giant signs advertising each brew) but the beer and the food (Caesar salad, Cuban sandwich, and the seasonal wheat) did the job. They also had pretty quick service.

But the food was average ! Loved the vibe & had several different brews but the snacks we ordered were bland ? The coasters state that they have been going for 25 + years, so they are doing something right ? This place has Gold Medal Winning Beers ! Next visit , I'll stick to the brews, they were Great...

Have been going to Walnut Brewery pretty regularly when in Boulder for the past 30 years or so. The on-tap beers are great, but I think that the food has slipped a bit in quality while increasing in price over the last couple of years. I would have to say that the food is pricey and average in quality.

We were here for dinner and choose to eat in the bar, since we wanted to enjoy drinks for a while first. We waited quite a while after ordering our first drink before it came, but then it had to be 30 minutes before our waitress checked back. At that time we ordered a second drink and then waited again.... More

Eight here on a Wednesday afternoon with four people. Both couples split an entrée and added a cup of soup. House beer cheese soup was fantastic and the entrées were big enough to split. Beers were excellent and everybody enjoyed something different. Lots of house specialties to choose from. The martinis were to die for. Service was average even though... More

Great service, great food, and lot's of beer choices! What more can I say? Place is large and the noise level is medium-loud. Not a place to bring your hard-of-hearing grandfather. But its a fun place! Parking on street or in parking ramp across street. Right off of Pearl Street Mall and so take a stroll after dinner. We will... More

Tonight we stopped in for an early dinner after a nearby hiking trip. My husband and son ordered the salmon fish & chips which is my husband's favorite dish, so he recommended it to our son. Our granddaughter had a cheese pizza, which we had to wait for, because they burnt the first one. I ordered the chicken fried chicken... More

My plate of ponzu salmon was huge fresh and delicious. Brews are great also. Everything came out reasonable time. Prices, service, and atmosphere are good. Great menu. I could eat here once a week.

Six of us visited for dinner and enjoyed it very much. It is not high-end but fine for a good hamburger and cake for dessert. It is a lively environment and very popular with the locals. We would go back when in the area.

My wife and I were very impressed. Great wait staff, great food, short wait, etc. Our waitress was a trainee, so she had assistance. Both she and her assistant were great. I wasn't sure what beer I wanted to try so she brought a couple different samples over for me to try. Our food was excellent and more than we... More
