Every time I have come here it has been a very welcome, relaxing meal that lets me really enjoy the surroundings and the company I am in. The dining hall is located in a really beautiful spot in the hill in Boulder, just minutes from busy Pearl Street but a world away. Myself and my dining companions have always been... More

When the food arrives and it's like warm at best because it's all... More

Neither soap dispenser in the men's room had soap in it. WHAT WERE FOOD HANDLERS USING??? Had to ask twice to have soap supplied. Unacceptable.

We had just finished a long hike and were so excited to get a nice meal the Dining Hall! We were not disappointed. So relaxing with the views, great food and very attentive service. We ate outside on the porch and there were heaters on the ceilings that were perfect for a cooler afternoon.

Chautauqua has always been one of my favorite stops in Boulder and this was my first time eating at the historic Dining Hall. It was a lovely autumn day and we were seated outside on the porch with a view overlooking the park. It could not have been more enjoyable! Our waitress, Bailey, was very friendly and checked back with... More

When the weather is warm, you can eat out on the huge porch which has stunning views of both Boulder and the park. If your going into the later Fall and Winter, or early Spring, you'll be inside with their huge fireplace, and the old windows which look out on the lovely Boulder Valley. The service is friendly and knowledgable.... More

I love coming here for breakfast. Whenever we have family or friends visiting and are looking for places to grab some breakfast this is a top choice for us. Their food is wonderful and my picky husband craves some of their breakfasts at times. It is nestled up right next to the flatirons, which although beautiful, can cause a LOT... More

Had lunch at this heritage building. Service was over the top for a place that served burgers and beer. Food arrived quickly and was overpriced for what you received. You pay for the location and the view from the verandah.

The dining hall is set at the other end of of rangers office. Don't miss the short walk through the community of cottages. The service was very pleasant and any questions were answered. The food was lovely too. They have a patio with good views and inside there log fires.

The Chautauqua Dining Hall has been a Boulder tradition since 1898. Savor spectacular views from the enchanting wraparound porch while enjoying classic American cooking at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The Dining Hall offers a full bar with local beers and great wines to complement your meal. And there's no finer venue in Boulder for weddings, private parties, or any type of special celebration.

After a hike on the nearby trails, before a concert in the historic Chautauqua Auditorium, or anytime you'd like to meet friends and family in Boulder's most scenic setting, the Dining Hall is the perfect place to go.
