My husband and I were visiting the Black Canyon of Gunnison and stayed in Montrose. We tried to eat here twice, but were unable to get a table. Each time we walked in the staff completely ignored us. Although there was a sign indicating to "Seat Yourself" the restaurant was full and without a host you are left starring at... More

Stopped here on our way home from a trip to the hot springs. Perfect ending to a great day. Hubby got the gyro and a side of mac n cheese (which was really yummy). I got the fish and chips, which was pretty good too. We both got a brown ale that was very tasty. Seems like a very popular... More

Great Atmosphere. Friendly, hard working staff. Food is above average. My favorite is the Reuben, which you can also get Southwestern style with green chiles. They used to have onion rings in the stout beer batter which were delish. Would like to see that brought back on the menu. Beers are varied in style, taste and quality.

Decided to go for a local brewery during our visit to Montrose. My wife picked out the joint because she knew I had always talked about eating Rocky Mountain Oyster when I was a kid. Getting to the chase, Horsefly Brewery had great RM Oysters and a good green child cheeseburger. The Bug-Eyed Blonde was also a good pick. My... More

The atmosphere was fun and I enjoyed watching them can a beer. The food was enjoyable for a bar up until I think I had something bad. Almost instantly upsetting my stomach. This is always a bad experience when you're traveling on the road. Safe travels and good luck if you venture this gamble.

Had some beers from the brewery and we tried....Rocky Mountain Oysters. Yes we did. When in Rome...they actually were ok, esp w Buffalo sauce! Anyway, had a burger and club sandwich, both... More

We were looking for another restaurant but passed this one. We wanted pub food and this is definitely a pub. It was open mic night, everyone seemed to know everyone. It was great fun, the fish & chips were good and the beer was fine if not notable. Would come back next time in Gunnison.

This was a fun little brewery in downtown Montrose. The atmosphere was casual and laid back. The food was simple, but tasty pub food. The beer was very good! We enjoyed the decoration and the good service. Their parking lot is too small, but there was street parking in the residential area behind the main street.
