Mountain sun is a chill place. Nothing fancy at all. It is good if you don't want to spend much and be very close to Pear street mall. They don't have much for vegetarians/vegans so I ordered the only thing available on the menu, vegetarian...More

Mountain sun is the quintessential laid back Boulder beer joint. The food is also pretty good, and the atmosphere is amazing. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for either a simple meal with friends or family where good beer is a must.

Had dinner here our first night in Boulder. It was a busy Tuesday night right before Thanksgiving. Had to wait about fifteen minutes, it was easily worth the wait. We were directed to a bar towards the rear of the establishment and given free tastings...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.
