Just stopped by for one of their beers the other night. It was nice to sit out on the sidewalk patio to have a beer and watch the people on Pearl St. Didn't eat, can't speak to that.

This is a vibrant, fun, clattery, restaurant for the young at heart. It was very busy, and the staff won't take bookings unless it is for a table for 6 or more, and even then there may be a wait, as we had. They do...More

I had never experienced "team service" at a restaurant, but after eating at Mountain Sun, it is apparent that it should be a model for other eateries. The vibe of this place exudes sunshine and happiness, but not in an annoying way. The food was...More

This was one of my favorite meals while I was in Boulder for a few days. Why? The people. Even though I was alone they made me feel welcome, like I belonged. My waiter brought me samples of all the light beers and helped me...More

We had a flatbread pizza, beer was good - I was just disappointed they had no "summer" or "sour" beer. Waitress was super good!

Nachos are so good, great beer selection, and plenty ya'know! Wait-service is awesome and always bustling with people - a long time favorite! In god they trust, all others pay cash, no CC's.

We went in on a whim and it was the highlight of our vacation. The staff was so friendly and professional way beyond my expectations. The food was awesome and you wouldn't expect the staff in a brewery to cater to children but they entertained...More

Went here because we read the great reviews and had some awesome vegan and meat eater options. I had the beet sandwich which was not great and didn't sit well in my stomach. I really should have tried the vegan Rueben. The beers were pretty...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.
Do you sell gift cards? If so, how can I go about buying one remotely for a gift?

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
Do you take reservations? Do you have gluten free buns for burgers?

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