We stopped in here with high hopes. We have always gone to the Buffalo Restaurant and Bar when we go to Idaho Springs, but the menu changes there suck so we needed a new haunt. We were not disappointed. Their Creme sodas are amazing, we brought two 4-packs home. My son had the half order of fish and chips, and... More

I had a great cheeseburger here, on gluten free bread. I was by myself, and there was a little mix up, so I was not waited on right away. The waiter was so apologetic... he bought me a glass of wine and did an amazing job dealing with my food allergies. The kitchen staff were very helpful, also! This is... More

This was our first time stopping in Idaho Springs. Being in Colorado we decided to try a local microbrewery. We had the full flight of sample beers. There was a wide variety and varied from very smooth beers to extremely bitter beers they brew right inside the bar area. Overall they brew excellent beers. We also had a Bloody Mary... More

We were hoping for a decent meal, but the menu turned out to be basic bar food. We were also hoping for some unique beer, but that too was nothing special. The service was adequate, but not great and the prices were average too.

We capped off our girls trip weekend with a Sunday night dinner. Our server was very friendly but the food was okay - basic bar food. Atmosphere is cool and the beer flight was tasty.

This is a very fun and western brew pub located right on the Main drag of Idaho Springs. The beer was very good and the food was decent pub food. I would definitely go back.

I frequently visit the pub and I am usually pretty satisfied. The service in the bar area has always been nice. The Fish tacos and green chili are very delicious and the green chili cheese fries are awesome. The fries were nice and crisp with just the right amount of chili and cheese so that it's not a big pile... More

After a few days on Mt. Evans had to try the local brewery. Taste tested a few and bought three. The double walled stainless groweller is the bomb, kepts beer fresh for days.
