You can't miss the Buffalo Rose on the main street in Golden- just look for the bronze Buffalo up front . We went to enjoy the music of the Ullrgrass Fest, but realized this also has a hearty bar food menu which looked very good.

If you do the Lariot Loop, stopinGolden for a drink. Walk the historic downtown. Buffalo Rose has been many things over time. Now its real olf time saloon. Close to the Coors plant. Stop in for atour. Walk the river walk for a look at the historic village.

This is a saloon that has been open for over a hundred years and has a lot of great history. It is a cool place on Main Street. It is primarily a bar with good service. The food is OK but nothing great. Not recommended for kids.

My friend got kicked out for wearing a Trump hat. I didn't believe him, so I wore the hat in, and guess what? They wouldn't let me in. The owner is an avowed socialist who will not tolerate dissent , even though you have paid for a ticket to the show.

When you walk through the doors you immediately know that you are in a saloon. This is a real one. The beer was ice cold and the wings were very good. We love this kind of place, highly recommended.

For my birthday, my son took me to the Buffalo Rose, in Golden, CO. This has always been one of my favorite places, although I hadn't had a chance to go there in many years. I used to attend concerts there, which they still have, and the venue is perfect for enjoying great music, great food, and minus the hassle... More

We rode up to meet a few friends for drinks on the patio. It was busy, it was the last day for 90 ℃ weather. Service was good and the beer was cold. A lot of police walking in and out and watching so if you drink a little to much make sure you Uber or have a DD.

All four of us came on a Friday night and paid $10 a head for the music. The food and service were excellent, but the intro act (Rex Peoples and the Xfactr) left the main act in the dust. We'll come back but will check out the lead act more carefully next time.

Now we're talkin'. Sometimes you just want great food and a selection of great beer from which to choose, atmosphere and frills be damned. Well, pull up a chair - outside. Why anyone would waste any time sitting inside in Golden is beyond me. Besides, any time any of us ventured inside it was hot and miserable. Now back to... More
