We went on a Friday night hoping to having a simple family dinner. When we arrived we got excited as the place looked cozy and the service was friendly. But then food took quite a long time and when it arrived flavors were quite plane. It may have been that food took too long and we were just tired, but... More

We eat at Niwot Tavern at least twice a week. I always enjoy trying out their lunch special and the soup of the day. The service is always great and the food is always wonderful. So glad this place is convenient to my home and office!!!

Went there with some of my buddies for lunch. The Gyro I had was good and the rest of the dishes my buddies ate were good also. The Codfather fish sandwich is huge and according to my friend, great tasting. Service was quick and the waitress was very attentive. Won't hesitate to go there again.

Too bad there is no rating between average and very good. The Tavern is good, has decent comfort food and a good choice of beer and drinks. We had mussels (very good), Stroganof (Good), Chicken Breast Strips wrapped in bacon (very good) and Salmon. The two orders of salmon were both over cooked with one of them really dry. When... More

Great local restaurant with plenty of choices on the menu but my favorite is their pork sliders. Great service and it is so nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy the friendly folks in this small neighborhood tavern.

We sat outside on Taco Tuesday near the end of happy hour. It was comfortable and relaxing. I got a free pint glass with my beer order - a Tuesday night thing here. My wife loved her burger and I was very happy with my tacos. Bottom line though, this is a fine place to have a relaxing casual dinner... More

Bruchetta was nothing to impress, a small disappointment. Meatloaf needed more seasoning and a little bit dry. The Sheppard pie lacked flavor and proportion of meat to potatoes was not good. It looked way better than it tasted. Lacked even salt. Will not stop again. Three strikes and it is out.

Went with friends and discovered a nice, relaxed atmosphere, in- and outdoor seating, 12 draft beer choices, a very, very wide choice of menu items and many, many comfort food menu items. I tried the New England Clam Chowder and the Rueben. Both were very good. The Rueben, instead of slices of corned beef, had a thick slab. I prefer... More

I have eaten here a number of times, and have gone here for single malt scotch tastings. A friendly tavern with great service. The chef, Dave, is uncompromising, in his quest for fresh, and delicious dishes. He is original and imaginative. Worth the fifteen minute trip if you are in Boulder our Longmont .... or any other place,north of denver

Had dinner there early Sun. evening. For $20 TOTAL, hubby and I could choose an appetizer (we chose blue-cheese stuffed deviled eggs - 3 halves per person), and then I chose fish and chips (substituted salad for the chips) and hub had a burger. The fish was lightly-coated and fried. Not greasy - just delicious! This place does a hopping... More
