We were in the Denver area for a few days in February visiting friends, and these were some of the restaurants we went to during that time.
This diner is a favorite of one of our friends, and it did not disappoint! It has a fun atmosphere and great staff. The have typical “diner food” on the menu but also try to incorporate local flavors and well-known dishes from other states, including Rhode Island calamari, Maine lobster roll, and Mississippi Mud Pie. The only reason for the rating of 4/5 is their attempt to re-create these famous dishes fell short of the mark (I can speak personally of all of these!) Otherwise, it was a great stop while in Denver for a few days. We would go back if we had a chance.
We stopped for lunch here while shopping in downtown Golden, and what a find! The restaurant was recently renovated, and the entrance is very unique – you have to wander into Miner’s Alley and really be paying attention to find the front door, but that’s part of the fun! As soon as we stepped in the door, we felt like we had gone back in time to sit at the bar or by the fireplace after a long day of gold mining to enjoy modern and EXCELLENT food and drinks. The chef stated that the menu changes with the season depending on the availability of fresh meats and produce. This place would be worth making a special trip to eat here again!
We went to this authentically German bar in Boulder for drinks one evening. The bier was cold and the company was awesome. The menu consists of stronger ales and pilsners, and although we both prefer light bier we found something enjoyable…served in a 1 liter glass! This unique find is fun for some evening fun while exploring downtown Boulder.
