Duck wings=amazing. Green chili is spicy and delicious. The black IPA is what's up. Fun place to stop on the way home. Better like the smell of a brewery, cuz they make beer constantly! I love it, just warning those with sensitive noses.

Place was hopping and we had quite a long wait on a Saturday afternoon. (Don't believe it if they say the wait is 15 minutes.) The chicken and waffle sandwich was recommended but was rather disappointing. The waffle was heavy and didn't appear to be freshly cooked. The Breuben however was fantastic. Next time we will order one and share... More

Awesome beer menu. Lots of options, from lights to darks. A 5 ounce sample of any beer for $1.50 made it easy to try several beers in a single flight. I suggest the blood orange, as it was fantastic. The waiter was very knowledgeable when I asked questions, and even had a great suggestion ready when a beer I requested... More

We stopped at Tommyknocker for lunch on our way back to Denver and really enjoyed it. I ordered a Reuben sandwich. It had a good portion or thinly sliced corned beef, which swiss cheese and saurkraut that wasn't too strong. The bread was a bit greasy and the fries were a bit hard and cold. My side salad was amazing.... More

We make it a point to stop in here whenever we are close to the area. We enjoy the beers on tap and the food is much better and more creative than most bar food. Always enjoy it.

My wife and I own 2 business in Estes Park, Colorado. We had frequented Tommyknockers three to five times a year for over a decade, making our dinners there the apex to our days of skiing at Loveland Ski Area. Their delicious burgers, sides, appetizers and generous glasses of craft beer so impressed us that we regularly recommend Tommyknockers as... More
