The Hoffbrau has been around for about twenty years now at 13th and Santa Fe. It has managed to keep it status as a nice place in an iffy neighborhood. A friendly sports oriented bar and restaurant, the Hoffbrau offers steaks, burgers, sandwiched, appetizers and a lot of other things. There is a full service bar with a wide array of liquor, beer, and other drinks. The food is quite good and the steaks are reasonable
Phantom Canyon has been around a while, since the early nineties. It is affiliated with the Wynkoop Brewery in Denver. Located in a lovely old building in old downtown, it is a bewery and restaurant on the ground floor and a pool hall upstairs. The beer is consistently good with 6 regular taps and couple of special beers, sometimes more. The food is great. Standard bar fare of burgers, sandwiches, fish and chips, and appetizers, there are also some upscale entrees available to. Great warm atmosphere. Check it out
The Pumphouse is located on Longmont's main street in a renovated building. Up tp 8 handmade beers are on tap at any one time. And they are all good. They make some really great special beers here. There is a menu which has a well made selection of gar fare snadwiches and appetizers, along with some finer dining options. The decor and the staff are warm and friendly
Northstar is located in a rapidly changing old Denver neighborhood overlooking downtown. The brewery quite small and offers only 3 of their own beers. Anumber of other local micros are also offered on tap. The menu is burgers, sandwiches, and appetizers. The atmosphere is very cozy and most of the clientele is from the neighborhood. Kyle Wagner, the brewer and part owner, was the head brewer at the famous Wynkoop Brewing Co, so he knows what he is doing. Good beer and good food. Check it out
Liks goes back a long way. 1978. It is one of the oldest of Denvers homemade ice cream parlors. All ice cream is made on premises. There are around 30 flavors and the variety is ever changing. Liks is also packaging their ice cream for supermarkets now. Every flavor I have tried was great. There are regular cones, sugar cones, waffle cones and a whole host of ice cream entrees.
The Cheeky Monk is Denver's first and only Belgian beer bar. There are 15 Belgian beers on tap and one American made Belgian style beer on tap. If you don't like any of these there are a number of Belgian beers in the bottle. No American slop beers here. The menu is both bar food and dining entrees. Some of the ifood tems are Belgian style. A must do if you like Belgian beer
Cross-Rhodes Restaurant is a great little Greek Restaurant in the heart of Evanston. My best friend took me there last time I was in because it was one of the last places left that allowed smoking! I had my favorite Greek foods in the world which were off the appetizer menu.
Spanakopita, Feta Cheese with Pita Bread and then a bowl of Egg Lemon soup. Mmmm.
Really extensive and good menu and great prices.
The Fire House Grill gets very mixed reviews from everyone in it all at the same time. I think the kids like it the most because there are authentic fire-fighting equipment plus fire-themed paintings and murals crowding the walls. It's fun to watch the little kids eyes light up.I had a wonderful chicken sandwich, and my friend had a juicy burgers served with a pile of fries to die for. Little kids seemed to be ordering macaroni and cheese and of course they wanted to eat in the engine room.This is a cute kitschy place.
The Blind Faith Cafe has been around since 1978. It has become an Evanston landmark! In the past 30 years, through the waning ??hippie? days of the '70s, the beef-crazy days of the '80??s, and the ever so ??PC? '90??s, the Blind Faith Cafe has managed not only to keep it's doors open, but flurish. It's a great place to eat, even if your not vegetarian. There is something for everyone. You can enjoy the bakery they have now and just sit with tea and enjoy yourself in a community environment.
Blind Faith Cafe is ever changing and yet so many things are familiar to us old hippies. You have to try it at least once!
The Celtic Knot is a nice Irish Pub with a good Irish food selection and sometimes it has entertainment. When we were there I had the Guinness Pasty, which is a puff pastry filled with Guinness braised beef. The beef was juicy, tasty, and tender. The others had the same but they also had pints of Guinness, which they said were yummy. The space is what I'd describe as upscale Irish pub. Celtic Knot delivered on good pub food and solid pint of Guiness.
