Description: Located in the heart of the historic Old Town district, Boulder Dam Brewing Co. is Boulder City's first and only brewpub. Located across the street from the Boulder Dam Hotel, the brewery is less than five miles from Lake Mead and less than eight from Hoover Dam. Practically a museum in itself, the brewery features decor and fixtures from the 1930's, silent films made during the construction of the dam, actual pieces of equipment used during the construction and a myriad of art depicting Boulder City's beginnings and brewing from the period. A destination for locals and visitors alike, Boulder Dam Brewing serves up six original pub-brewed beers at a time. The 40-barrel system allows the flexibility to offer many unique styles, from refreshing Pilsners to hoppy Pale Ales to creamy Stouts. Food ranges from traditional pub fare to salads, burgers, sandwiches and more, all prepared from scratch. The brewpub also carries a great selection of craft beer from around the world, wines and non-alcoholic beverages. With plenty of seating inside, and a beautiful beer garden outside, it's the perfect place to stop by for a pint and a bite.

Wow! What a great gem in the middle of the desert. This place has this incredible beer garden where you can drink all these great handcrafted beers made from the hands of the proprietor himself, Todd. All the staff are so friendly and happy and I think really enjoy their jobs and it really shows. The food is great bar food but there's something for everyone. And, the nicest thing is that families can be there in the evening, even though they serve beer, because it's a restaurant and they have live bands on Friday & Saturday nights. They really have some great ones and the whole family can enjoy it and it's just a great place to spend an evening!

Stopped for a beer and lunch. Took over an hour to get a wrap and and a salad. Beer was pretty good. Fries could be good if they were warm.
Dave's sports bar across the street much better. They have outside seating as well.

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by my little brewpub. I apologize for the slow delivery of food. It's my fault. When I built this place, I built a small kitchen. I assumed we'd have more patrons just in for a beer, not necessarily eating. I was wrong. Our kitchen is simply too small for our popularity. We are looking through plans to expand it. If you're ever back in the area, we'd love another opportunity to impress you. Cheers!

That about sums it up for me. The place was OK...just OK. The bartender was a good guy and friendly. The place itself wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either.

We were seated and never waited on. After 4 groups were waited on that came in after us, 3 of them well after us we left. Give someone else your business if you are not a local you do not matter to them.

Service was very poor. Beer was mediocre. We were very disappointed, as we'd looked forward to it very much.
