This salad was unique and delicious. Fresh avocado too! The setting is quaint and there's a nice bar. Also try the sweet potato fries with balsamic drizzle. Yum!

Great drinks, good food, excellent prices all in a fun atmosphere. The size of the happy hour appetizers is big enough to share.

Went for any early lunch. Met by friendly staff in a typical bar. Opted to sit in the bar rather than the restaurant to take in atmosphere. Good choice of beers, which I was offered samples in order to choose. Had a sheared meal of bacon wrapped shrimps and Mediterranean salad. Both good .

We have meaning to go here for some time and glad we finally did it. Got there before 7pm on a Saturday night and were able to take advantage of the happy hour specials. I had the pub shrimp and the cheesy fried polenta with mushroom sauce. Very tasty and reminded me of comfort food taken up a notch. Also... More

The food was delicious and so affordable it was a shock to us! I recommend reading the history of the place on the back of the menu! Very neat place with a calm/cool atmosphere. Great music playing such as the clash, and ramones.

I'm not a huge fan of the menu changed that occurred, but they still do have some pretty good items. Everyone here is friendly, the drinks are amazing, and I love the entertainment that goes on in the opera house.

Friends and I stopped into Dickens last week for some after dinner drinks and it is a really cool place with a great vibe. The drinks were beautifully prepared and the building has tons of character.

If the walls could talk in this place, the stories they'd tell! This historical building still maintains its late 1800's atmosphere with decor and ambiance, yet appealing to this century's visitors. Great place to hear great music upstairs. Perfect location to the start-or end--of your walk up and down tourist-destination: Longmont Main Street.

Went here again, only because my son had a band concert. This place occasionally gets some good music and the have a decent tap selection including several local craft beers. However, food is typical bar food and not inspired and seems to come from the frozen food isle instead of the garden. Skip this place if you are looking for... More

Went to see the vocal group Face (who are awesome, by the way). The place was PACKED, and I feel the service was excellent in light of this fact. We did eat, and the food was okay--maybe it would be better if you went there for dinner on a night where there isn't live music. We just ordered off the... More
