Wife tells me the Guacamole Burger was outstanding. I had the burrito which was good.. Other family members had chili rellenos which they liked as well. We had a second visit the wife had the Chili Relleno which she liked. Me? I had tacos which $9 for three seems a bit overpriced for me. You do have to pay $4... More

They have a wonderful patio that overlooks Cherry Creek Reservoir. Drinks are good and reasonably priced. Food average at best. Skip the food and enjoy the sun!

We stop by here every now and then for drinks and to watch the sunsets. The margaritas are pretty weak but you can ask for a double. Chips and salsa were also pretty weak. They did give us additional chips but no salsa. The staff are nice and there is plenty of seating. Ask for the deck on a very... More

This icon has fallen down. Dive bar doesn't have to be mediocre, dirty and falling apart...and that what this was. I have come here on occasion for 30 years...and this may be my last visit. Sure there is a view...but there are plenty of other spots with a view that have better food and service.

Emerald Isle you need to find your place. The view from the deck is very nice, yet no one is there looking at it. When we first walked in, we were greeted with loud unfriendly rap music. I know you are a biker friendly bar and your staff seems to dress to that clientele, not always a good look. The... More

It's a touch above a real 'dive' bar, but it is definitely a casual comfortable place to visit. The deck has a fantastic view of Denver and bit of a view of the Cherry Creek Reservoir. Food is very good bar food with Mexican and American options. Beer is cold and tasty as well! Great service, too!

I have been going to Emerald Isle for a few years now, the food has always been ok but nothing to rave about. I have mostly gone there for the patio and a good drink. Went today and had the worst margarita, tasted soapy. So bad we didn't finish.
