Can park off of Walnut and take a shortcut to Pearl. It's a burger and salad menu; wear sunscreen if rooftop. Very casual; beers on tap. Also a nice place after doing some browsing on Pearl St. mall. I am a local so have been many times!

This is a very hip and stylish bistro and craft alcohol the rule here. The BBQ is to die for and go now before they run out of their down home pork and brisket. They have more craft alcohol than a museum which makes for interesting tastings.

Service was pretty awful. Our waiter kept disappearing and getting food or drink was so SLOW. Can't give them a good review as a result.

I chose this restaurant based on other traveler's reviews. I'm glad I did! The green chili and goat cheese dip was phenomenal. I was really impressed with the brisket as well. Good service and cool, funky location. Unfortunately, the weather did not permit the open-area seating to be open, but it was still a good experience.

The ambiance of this place was very chill and inviting, had a great conversation at the bar with not only my boyfriend but the bar staff and other customers. Came in for a light dinner and had really good salads even though the place seemed like a burger/sandwich/bar food type. Pleasantly surprised! Would recommend the Tavern Salad. Also an excellent...

We got seated on the roof and it was absolutely beautiful. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and extremely friendly. We ordered 6 different cocktails, all of which were delicious. I would recommend the one that has cucumber in it. Between our group we ordered BBQ pork, Brisket, a HUGE salad, and fish and chips. All the food was... More

My husband and I tried this restaurant on a beautiful but cold day in Boulder. We were warmly greeted and then taken up a few flights of stairs to a table. We ordered the tavern burger with fries and the chicken and biscuit with sweet potato fries. Lovely meal on a lovely day.

Our family of 6 had lunch at The West End Tavern while visiting Boulder. It has a nice warm and welcoming feel. We all enjoyed our food we had chili, salads, steaks, stew and a chicken sandwich everything was yummy. I had the chili and it was good. If you are in the area it's worth a stop.

I've gone here for drinks and food several times. It's a great spot and does have some good food (try the cornbread skillet!! You won't be disappointed!). I also enjoy their drinks too. There are other places that are just as good and better, but this is still a place we frequent and enjoy.

The West End Tavern has been Boulder's favorite spot for cold beer and good eats since 1987. The Tavern brings you a menu of delicious home-style American cuisine, while the West End bar is THE local authority on boozy goodness. Pull up your favorite stool or cozy into the best booth and find out what's good.
