Such a great place to gather on Sundays to watch the games with lots of fans. Great service and food - the best micro brews in town!

Walnut Brewery is a very nice place to go for dinner on the weekend. While the service was iffy, the restaurant was packed, and the ambiance was nice for what was expected. I will definitely be returning soon.

The salmon fish and chips here is a fantastic dish. You get 4 generous pieces of smoked salmon with fries and a little cole slaw. Share with someone or have a huge meal yourself. Top it off with a yummy beer -- my favorite was the Old Elk Brown Ale -- and you have a hearty meal. Enjoy!

Walnut Brewery is a good choice when you need to please a variety of palates.....our party enjoyed burgers, the kale salad with chicken, fish and chips and, of course, some good brews. Service was great for our party of seven.

We enjoyed our dinner at Walnut Brewery. We had some very interesting and tasty beers. In a place like Boulder where there is a craft beer scene to stand out with excellent beers is no small task. Great food too and well beyond regular pub chow. Will go back.

My friends took me here 24 years ago. The food, beer, and ambiance haven't changed. It's still a great place!

My husband and I had an early lunch at Walnut where we enjoyed a flight of beers and split an appetizer (Chorizo Cotija Pretzel Bites) and burger (Bison Prairie Burger). The food was all very high quality and well prepared which makes for a very satisfying nosh.

I have been eating at Walnut Brewery for over 10 years. Every time I visit, Walnut Brewery is on my list. Nachos are large and tasty. Bison burger is the best I have ever had. Even the kids with a kids steak meal was very good. Many beer choices with Buffalo Gold being the local favorite and many awards for other beers. I highly recommend this place to anyway that wants a great meal, good beer, and excellent customer service. The waitresses were the best I have ever had anywhere!.

Walnut has some of our favorite beers, but also they manage to have really good pub food. It is not fancy food - exactly how it is supposed to be in a pub, it is every kitchen staples but they are doing it right. Try their mashed potatoes or mac&cheese or salads... or actually any thing - we did not have a single bad serving here. This is our "go-to if in doubt" place in Boulder.

Typical brewpub fare. Attentive service, mediocre food. Restaurant's interior could use a freshen-up.

Whenever we visit our daughter at CU we always make it a point to go to the Walnut Brewery. The food is consistently good, especially the burgers and the mac and cheese.

We had a nice time here. The food was great for bar food. We didn't really have any complaints. The drinks were good as well. Quick service for how busy it was. We would eat there again.

Can always count on Walnut for great service and good food. They were celebrating 25 years while we were there, and the energy was up!
