In addition to being a full-service restaurant and brew pub, Two Brothers Roundhouse also offers banquet space for a variety of get-togethers, large and small as well as a music venue and the Two Brothers Cafe and Beer Bar. Situated in the oldest limestone roundhouse in the US, its 70,000 square foot facility is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. The Two Brothers Roundhouse menu starts you off with an appetizer of chimichurri nachos, Brussels sprouts or beer brezen, just to name a few, and follows that up with favorites such as autumn scallops, goat risotto or duck 'n grits in addition to a wealth of other entrees, burgers and sandwiches.

Passion for beer, a love of food and live entertainment with a decidedly local flair flourish inside the granite walls of the Two Brothers Roundhouse.

Food sub par drinks were not good. I ordered a Bailey's and coffee was brought a cup of coffee 15 minutes later I was brought Kahlua in a glass, I sent back the Kahula and was brought some thing that might have been an off brand Irish cream but was not Bailey's . By this time the coffee was stone cold.

Eight of us sat/ate in the Tavern then hung around to see two different bands play that night. Food and drink was good and service was attentive. All in all a great time.

The food is ok and probably average at best. The reason to visit here is the ambiance and location. A fun night and interesting location.

Food was okay not a lot of selections for full meal, our was waitress did a good job, be forewarned if you have a favorite liquor such as Tanqueray or Bombay Sapphire or Jack Daniel's forget it. They recently started distilling their own liquor. I am a gin drinker and their gin SUCKS. Wine offerings sucked.

The service was excellent. The food was very good, definitely above average. The portions were abundant. I had the cob salad, two of my friends had the crusting and roasted sweet potato special and two others had the chicken and pasta special, everyone was pleased. Our only complaint was that we were seated by a pair of double doors and there was a cold draft coming in.

I am a frequent visitor to the Roundhouse. There is always something happening...great music, brew and view movie nights, comedy nights. The food and service is a cut above and top notch booze....what more could you ask for?

Not a good value. Unfortunately it's one of the only good choices for pre-Paramount Theater dining. We will eat closer to home prior to coming to downtown Aurora in the future.

Took a party of 6 for post-theater early dinner. All enjoyed a casual meal, including 2 fussy preteens. We loved the Brussel Sprout appetizer. Will definitely order again. Three of us ordered the special Reuben sandwich...generous portion and delicious!

Our family group of 20 came here after seeing a play at the Paramount Aurora. Our plans were made in advance with the general manager Eddie and he was spot on with his recommendations. We were seated immediately and our advance ordered appetizers were ready within five minutes. Our server Ann was incredible and extraordinary along with the support staff. Orders were taken, food was served timely and all our requests were handled with the utmost skill and congeniality. Can’t say enough about how pleased everyone in our group was with our experience at this restaurant. Many thanks!!

Service left something to be desired. Waited 5 minutes for a hello at our table. Rather busy and maybe even short staffed for a Wednesday night. However, the food was pretty good. Wings (red hot) so good we got an order to go as well just for a late night snack) and the short rib sandwich was good but seemed to be missing something... like lettuce maybe?? And the house made ranch was excellent!! Had it on a side salad which was decent but would have been better with a little cheese and croutons. Overall good food and would go back again.

This place has good ambience -- it is really the only nice place in downtown Aurora if you attend the Paramount. Warnings -- Two brothers only sells their own brands of liguor, so our attempts to get normal call brands of liquor were futile. They have "small plates," which indeed are very small portions -- 2 small plates were about the price of an entree, but didn't have a lot of food. Entree food portions are pretty small too, so folks who ordered an entree liked the food but came away a tad hungry...except for one person who got a burger. So, in our party, no one was able to get their drink of choice, and while the food was good, portions were very skimpy if you want a real dinner.

Food was so-so. No flavor in the short rib sandwich. House chips seemed like the bottom of the bag all broken into small pieces. Beer was good though.

Had the ribeye chefs special. It was not good at all. Probably the worst streak I ever had. We where in a group of eight and three of us got the special and all three where done very badly. Just overall a bad cut of meat and poorly cooked and everyones steak was cold. The potatoe and green beans where plain. Had to ask three times for butter for the potatoe. Service was great though, no fault of our server. Love the atmosphere.

Parking was a nightmare, seemed like the only way to get a parking spot was to use valet since they blocked off more than half the lot for it. Waiter took forever to come back to the table to just take our food order then didn't come back to make sure we had everything. When their menu says small plates, they mean it. I ordered the pork belly tacos. They were ok, but lacking a bit of flavor and overpriced for what you actually get, $8.00 for 2 very small tacos.
