Good American fare at a reasonable price. Friendly staff, good service. Good Sunday brunch, with cheap bloody Mary's. Good burgers and Cobb salad.

I've been eating at the tavern for many years as a local. The food is always consistently very good. The ahi tuna wraps are always very fresh. The kids Mac n Cheese is super yummy for even the pickiest eater. Service is always consistent- many servers have been there for years- which adds to the "small town" feel. Burgers +... More

What a cozy fun place! My brother-in-law got the meatloaf that had bacon around it. I got fish tacos, which were mouth watering and healthy.

We went on a Friday night hoping to having a simple family dinner. When we arrived we got excited as the place looked cozy and the service was friendly. But then food took quite a long time and when it arrived flavors were quite plane. It may have been that food took too long and we were just tired, but... More

We eat at Niwot Tavern at least twice a week. I always enjoy trying out their lunch special and the soup of the day. The service is always great and the food is always wonderful. So glad this place is convenient to my home and office!!!

Went there with some of my buddies for lunch. The Gyro I had was good and the rest of the dishes my buddies ate were good also. The Codfather fish sandwich is huge and according to my friend, great tasting. Service was quick and the waitress was very attentive. Won't hesitate to go there again.

Too bad there is no rating between average and very good. The Tavern is good, has decent comfort food and a good choice of beer and drinks. We had mussels (very good), Stroganof (Good), Chicken Breast Strips wrapped in bacon (very good) and Salmon. The two orders of salmon were both over cooked with one of them really dry. When... More

Great local restaurant with plenty of choices on the menu but my favorite is their pork sliders. Great service and it is so nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy the friendly folks in this small neighborhood tavern.

We sat outside on Taco Tuesday near the end of happy hour. It was comfortable and relaxing. I got a free pint glass with my beer order - a Tuesday night thing here. My wife loved her burger and I was very happy with my tacos. Bottom line though, this is a fine place to have a relaxing casual dinner... More

Bruchetta was nothing to impress, a small disappointment. Meatloaf needed more seasoning and a little bit dry. The Sheppard pie lacked flavor and proportion of meat to potatoes was not good. It looked way better than it tasted. Lacked even salt. Will not stop again. Three strikes and it is out.
