I had a flight of Belgian beers. All were outstanding. The mac & cheeses was delicious. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable, courteous and timely.

West Flanders makes a good burger, especially since for $2 extra you can get grass fed beef. Service is good.

The beer was OK, I settled for an IPA, I was disappointed they didn't have a stout when we ate there.

It's a central location on the perl st mall. There is a 4 story parking garage in the block behind.

This is small batch beer folks - it's local, fresh, and fantastic! If you want to appreciate the craftsmanship necessary to make beer that good, be sure to call ahead and arrange a tour with Brian. You'll be glad you did.

West Flanders is a fun place for a beer and food. The beers are very good and you can try a sample before ordering. Everyone enjoyed their dishes. Ribs, salads, wings, fish and chips. They were all good but not outstanding in my opinion. It is noisy inside and we sat outdoors which was very nice.

good food. great location. Not flexible on food options and made an alteration expensive and clear that it would be difficult, "tedious" was the wording to add a protein item to flatbread.

We come here every year for the Dead & Co shows. We eat at West Flanders each day. Stephanie’s service is outstanding and that chicken pot pie with the pretzel crust is insane. Substituting vodka for tequila in a craft drink was no problem. Love West Flanders is awesome!

Great service, yummy comfort food, nice location in the heart of Boulder. Wouldn’t
have been too noisy except for the cute, but screaming and rambunctious kiddos at the next table.

Great for just beers/appetizers or happy hour, won't be back for dinner as it is way overpriced and the food is an underwhelming disappointment.

The chicken pesto sandwich was miniscule and did not even cover the small bun. My daughter asked where is the chicken? Thank goodness she ordered the mac and cheese side ($6). Sides such as fries, etc. are a la carte for $4 so your basic bar food/sandwich is $16+. My husband did like the Reuben and it was sized appropriately. For a family of three, 3 entrees and 2 beers - $70 plus tip seems a bit extreme especially when it was not good.

We were disappointed by our visit as we came for beer and appetizers a few weeks ago and had a great experience. It was the reason we came back. We now know only beer and appetizers upon our return.

The initial greeting was stellar. The server did not live up to the initial greeting. She took our beer and food order while a table next to us was sat. The two beers took over 5 minutes to be served all the while she was chatting up a few women who were sitting at the rail of the bar. While we waited the table next to us who had only been greeted and provided water by the host got up and left.

Beers arrived! Both were quite tasty and I thoroughly enjoyed the New England style IPA. A food runner brought my husband's burger and fries and my beef stew. Both were served hot and the burger was cooked to the requested temp.

My husband's beer drew empty and the server was back at the bar this time complaining to the women at the bar about the table that left. When we were 2/3rds completed with our meal she came by to ask "how are we enjoying everything", we said everything was fine to which she wisked away.

We asked for the bill and were shocked to find that the fries on the burger plate were an addition $4 bringing the total for the burger and fries in at $17! While the burger was tasty this was ridiculously priced.

The wait staff should be provided the training the hosts have as the expectation upon arrival is not met by the lackluster service upon being sat.

Starting with the positives, good beer and tasty food!

Among other things, the service was very slow. I was there with my wife and a couple of friends and we we're planning to see a show nearby at 8pm. I scheduled a reservation at 6:45 and we ended up arriving at 6:35 and was able to be seated early. That being said, the slow service coupled with a number of mistakes with our food, we ended up being a little late to the show. My wife and one of our friends ordered burgers and when they first came out they were missing some key toppings and sauces. No big deal, we asked and they were brought out shortly. My friend ordered her burger medium-well and after cutting into it, it was a bloody rare. She couldn't even eat it, but by the time the server came back there wasn't enough time to right the order and she ended up nibbling on some fries.

Things happen, and I'm sure this is not indicative of a typical visit, but I will not be returning.

We were there on a busy parents weekend. Overall we enjoyed our time. Drink service was good and food was decent bar food. We even had a drink accidentally do cartwheels off the tray onto our table and a few of us. The waiter was so sweet and humble we couldn’t fault the place.

I made reservations in advance with open table with no problems. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food arrived no too fast or late and was good. We were there over Parents Weekend so it was very crowded but didn’t feel like it. We were seated upstairs and ended up having a view of the Stampede, which was perfect.

They were very accommodating with regards to trying to seat us in a quiet area, and the service was good, but the food was not very good. The Reuben was burned and the meat was so salty it bordered on inedible. (We we’re surprised that it was served given how burned it was). The fish and chips had too much coating.

Nice brewery but nothing stands out as special. The Burgers were great. The pot pie was "fine" and the veggie burger was prettty good but it was offered on a lettuce wrap that was really a bunch of shredded lettuce on top, which made it very hard to eat.

Okay - Boulder - college town, I get it. But when I've been seated for 20 minutes and no one says "we'll be with you in moment" or "thanks for waiting, will be right with you", you walk out. If no stars could be given, they would. The worst non-dining experience in memory.

We used opentable to get us a spot at this brewery. Sitting outside on the Pearl Street Marker was wonderful. Our server was friendly and gave great recommendations. Our food came out quickly and was delicious as were our drinks. I would highly recommend this brewery to any of my friends for dinner and drinks.

Table reserve for 7 and we we were placed at a table for 6 with a chair at the end and it was very very tight but a table for 8 opened up and we were quickly moved to the larger space. Beer was awesome and everyone really enjoyed their food. We were there are the last supper before the Ironman and there was a special meal named for the Ironman which was especially thoughtful.
