“Nice place for large groups”

Boulder Tap House - Ames
Ranked #49 of 218 Restaurants in Ames
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 weeks ago via mobile

Ate and drink here with 30 people. Service was vood and they had a large beer variety. However, there were several I was unfamilar with compared to Des Moines. I got excited when they had a sandwich that appeared to be there version of the juicy lucy (Minneapolis). It was not to be as it was more like a regular hamburger like every other restaurant that tries. They have a decent menu but nothing seemed extraordinary. If you want somewhere to socialize, have some drinks and watch tv this is a good ootion.

Good, basic food. Kids menu. Attentive service. Accommodated our large group after a short wait on a busy weekend. Left happy!

Good hamburgers. There messy but good. Parmesan fries are ok. Good wait service. I like the look and feel of this place. I will go back to try something different. If your looking to watch football games this is the place, lots of huge TVs everywhere.

If you like a great sports bar atmosphere with wonderful food, this is the place for you! Normally there is about a 15 minute wait before you are seated, but the food is worth it. The staff is very helpful and attentive. If there is a negative, we have now eaten here twice and with a couple of burger or wing entrees and one appetizer with drinks, we have been unable to get out of here for less than $40 plus tips.
