Although the beer is very good, the service is terrible. We were greeted by the hostess with "how many", not a hello, not a how are you tonight, not even a smile. The waitress came to the table 10 minutes after we were seated and said, "what do you want to drink". Again no smile, no hello. Brought drinks to... More

The tomato bisque is outstanding as were the duck wings. The macaroni and cheese was just ok but the burgers were very good.

Nice place to stop when traveling between Denver and the ski resorts. We have stopped here four times over the last three years and it has failed to disappoint. The food has been good. The restaurant was clean. And the craft brew and root beer is a bonus.

We recently stopped in Idaho Springs for dinner on our way home from a ski trip. We both selected the Maple Nut Brown beer from their extensive list. We were not disappointed. The food we ordered was also terrific - - including the bison burrito and the hot pastrami sandwich. Wendy made sure to take good care of us, too.... More

We came for a friends birthday (party of 8) our server Michelle was the best! (And working in the industry we know what we're taking about.) Everything came out quickly and correct. I had a duck burger and green chili fries both were super good. Prices might seem a little high at first but once you eat here, you realize... More

I happened by here for lunch while driving through Colorado and having had their beer, I had to give it a try. The atmosphere is nice, brewery and bar area with tables on one side and rustic restaurant on the other. The service was average, nothing terrible yet nothing note worthy either. I ordered a pint and a Buffalo burger... More

So, one of the good things was that this restaurant was working until 10PM, which few restaurants in Idaho Springs do. The brewery has 2 dining rooms - one fancy, another - in the brewery. I was in the brewery where was decent. The server was very polite and I really appreciate her customer service(bad that I don't remember her... More

I've been begging these guys to work with a distributor in Indiana. But, everytime I travel to Cincinatti, OH I know exactly where to pick up their beer. I don't know why this beer was so good. Was in the creek nearby? The spring? The brewmaster? I loved all of their beer. All genres.
