Diner Reviews
  • "Serviceable Gastropub cuisine, I like the nachos. Above average beers. 30+ visits, this is about as good as it gets. Also like Ft. Collins breweries and Lafayette's "The Post"."

  • "We were not happy. They were playing really loud obnoxious music and the food was bad. My husband's food was so salty he good barely eat it. We used to really like this restaurant. We're not planning on going back. It was fairly empty on a Saturday night so most people must have already figured this out. "

  • "Hope you can fix my mistake-previous review was meant for Cheesecake Factory, we didn't have a reservation!!! The Walnut Brewerey was great, typical good, personal Boulder service, suggestions as to menu items, good service, etc. Sorry if they get the review for the Cheesecake Factory."

  • "The food was really good. Ordered the pulled pork sandwiches quickly feel in love. The other person I was with ordered the Santa Fe salad also delicious. The brownie was a great ending to the lunch. The service however was poor we had to wave multiple times at our waiter to get refills and to order dessert and to get our check. Our server didn't ask if we wanted to order until 20 minutes after being seated and then never asked how our food was after we got our food. Thank god the food was so good it made of for the awfulness of the service."

  • "I'm not sure how you get to a 4 or 5 star review for this restaurant unless you are there to drink beer. We went there to eat with my son at CU based on the greater than 4 star review average; and average is what the food is. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't great either. I had the fish and chips, which again, was okay. My wife had the enchiladas, which were a very small portion, even for her. My son had wings, which looked like they were cooked and then had the sauce poured on to drown them. I like a lot of sauce, my son doesn't, they should be tossed and then plated so they weren't swimming in a 1/4 inch of sauce. All in all, go here to drink, not eat, unless you need some bar food with your beer."

  • "Recommend with reservations. All sandwich orders were just so-so, and fries were only warm. The pasta dish was the best order placed-no complaints."

  • "We went to WB for the CU game when the temp was going to be in the 20's. We had a large group and the service was great. We were pleasantly surprised to find happy hour prices on drinks and food on a Saturday to boot."

  • "A variety of food among the 6 of us. Overall good, not exceptional. Our server, Kristen, made the day, with excellent service and a friendly smile."

  • "Took the in-laws here on a Friday night. Good food and good beer - everything you would expect from a micro brew place. A little crowded around dinner time, so make a reservation if you can. We did and walked right in."

  • "Great food and beer with noisy fun. Will be looking forward to next visit. I recommend making a reservation."

  • "We dine at Walnut Brewery often. The menu has a ton of offerings for everyone. The food is consistently good, and the service is awesome. We don't always order from the dinner menu, but from the appetizer menu. We order a bunch of different ones and each is wonderful."

  • "As expected, they had a great selection of beers and the food was pretty good as well. I wouldn't necessarily send recommend Walnut just for the food but with a great beer selection, an energetic/fun environment and outstanding wait staff service, I do recommend this place. A shout out to our server Tony who provided outstanding service and had a great/fun attitude that added to our enjoyment for the evening."

  • "Awesome food. Employees were the best. A little loud, but a great place to watch a game."
    Dined on 9/26/2013
  • "Our server was efficient and attentive. That's the best thing I can say about the Walnut. The ales were uninspiring; the mess on the floor around our table was unapplealing and smelly; and overall, the food was poor. We sampled some pub grub as well as salads. One bright spot, though this rating is relative, was the artichoke dip. Everything else was not worth the time, money, or calories. Sorry Walnut. We wanted to like you."

  • "I hadn't been here in 20yrs, but we went here as someone in our party preferred pubs, and I remembered it being pretty good. They mentioned that they had gone their once before but left without ordering due to slow service, but we thought we'd give it another chance. Unfortunately what I encountered was a couple young girls (hostess and waitress) with attitude and little desire to be helpful. I literally got a scoff from the waitress when I asked if they had a gluten free menu or could guide me on which items would be gluten free. They must be the last restaurant in Boulder and the Denver Metro who doesn't accommodate this kind of request. Ultimately our table felt the food was fine, but no one was overly excited. Won't be going back."

  • "Great brew pub with a nice selection of food. We tried the Buffalo tacos and the Smoked Salmon Fish & Chips and they were both wonderful. This was a great spot for a family with young kids as well - enjoy!"

  • "It has been several years since we have eaten at the Walnut Brewery. When my husband recommending inviting our neighbors out to dinner we thought this would be a great change. Even on a Wednesday night the place was full but not overcrowded. The beers were great and the food a real treat. You would think a hamburger is just a hamburger but not at the Walnut Brewery, they still remember how to do it up right. I made my meal out of the appetizers, enjoying the Tuna that tasted as fresh as if I was on the Florida coast and the spinach/jalapeno cheese dip (yummmmmmmy). The server gave us just the right amount of attention. We won't stay away so long next time."

  • "I loved the beers and food! We were just visiting Boulder and were told to head here. I would definitely recommend this place!"
    Dined on 5/27/2013
  • "Good variety of beers and other drinks, as well as a different approach to american food. Service was friendly, and the food came incredibly fast. It's a little bit on the pricey side, but I'll definitely go again."

  • "I should have done more research to have known that this is essentially just a Rock Bottom. While that is just fine, I wanted something local and fun. It is definitely a chain restaurant."
    Dined on 5/17/2013
  • "Great food and beer. Noise level is intolerable. We specifically asked in the reservation request to be seated at the quietest place in the restaurant. They put us right in the middle of an extremely noisy restaurant."

  • "Lunch was ok. The waitress was very friendly. Food was mediocre. No bread was offered with our salads and soup. I ordered a seared ahi tuna salad. I wanted it warm in the center, but the waitress said they couldn't do that. She said they serve it like it is, and if it's too rare, I can send it back. It arrived thinly sliced on top of the greens, so I don't know how they could have cooked it more without ruining it. So I told her it was ok. But it did not have much flavor. Seems like it was a packaged piece of tuna that they just open and slice up. My friend ordered a cobb salad without tomatoes. It arrived at the table with lots of chopped tomatoes on it. She said it was ok, and scraped off all the tomatoes herself. Give it a"
