With so many choices in Boulder is hard to go wrong with this local dive bar. While they have several pub items in their menu the stars would have to be their burgers. All of which come with homemade fries that are served hot. Tip...More

Food and service was excellent. My only issue is not taking credit cards although you do offer for folks to pay later thru the mail! The fee to use their atm machine is only a buck so not a big deal to get cash Highly...More

Beer was okay, food was okay and service was okay. We wouldn't go back, it didn't stand out. Strangely they only take cash.

We stumbled upon Mountain Sun on our 1st night in Boulder and instead of our planned 'bar hop and find a restaurant' plan we ended up staying there all evening! The atmosphere was chilled, the staff were all so friendly and polite, especially our lovely...More

I think their South Boulder location may be able to manage the size. I do. It know the policy of the pub on large groups though. It is cash only so you will need a wad of bills or a local check.

They only take cash so I am guessing they do not sell gift cards. Try Avery brewery or Fate brewery that may sell gift cards

They do not take reservations and are often busy, but very accommodating while you wait. I'm not sure about gluten free.
