To get the feel of a “boulder” resto...one must come to one of the 3 sun restaurants. Mountain, Southern or Under the—food is fresh and reasonably priced. Good beer. Everyone is post/hike, climb, bike etc...So the atmosphere is casual and very athletic! Great place to...More

Went for a quick lunch after a hike in Chautauqua and Mountain Sun really hit the spot. There was a short wait for a table on the Saturday afternoon, but they offered free beer samples (which were very good) and chatted with us for awhile....More

There's a reason this place has a line out the door waiting for tables every day since it opened - good food, good prices, good staff. You won't ever regret eating here.

I enjoyed supper here. The fresh cut fries and steak sandwich were both served hot and fresh. Free beer samples! Our servers were all prompt and informative. I would definitely go here again.

It was so well balanced and huge. Beer selection impressive. Chill atmosphere, it is cash only, but for Boulder prices aren’t bad. I recommend.

This was our second trip to this place -- the beer list is good and the food is generally delicious. Make a note, however, they do not accept credit cards.

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

They do not take reservations and are often busy, but very accommodating while you wait. I'm not sure about gluten free.
