This is one of those places that has the feel of a local’s spot. The Hungry Toad is a neighborhood favorite and is in a great location just north of Pearl St. Portions are enormous, so my husband and I split the fish and chips which was delicious and more than enough food. (They were awesome and split the dish for us, something we truly appreciate since some restaurants charge for that.) Service was decent, but could have been better. There seemed to be more people walking around checking on things than doing things. I completely understand everyone being short staffed these days, but in this case it seemed like things weren’t quite aligned.
Nice beer selection and food options. Fish and chips are solid - nice and crispy. Tartar was decent too, these guys know what they’re doing.
LOVE the authentic British Pub feel right in the middle of Boulder! Fish & Chips are kinda silly great! Must get recipe for that sauce! Great service and the outside patio is awesome!
"The Toad" is our favorite restaurant. Such a warm family-friendly environment, great staff, yummy food with easy, free parking! We're loving their "proper British" brunch menu on the weekends and excited about the new dog-friendly beer garden addition in the back. Long live The Toad!
The Toad deserves five stars on the basis of endurance alone having held down the SW corner of Broadway and North Street for over 30 years while other restaurant locations in the neighborhood have turned over several times. It has also survived the closing of the nearby Boulder Community Hospital's Broadway location of many decades. The place riffs off of the traditional English public house both in decor and food and beverage offerings. The selection of beers on draft is excellent including gems such as Old Speckled Hen. And in addition to a very good selection of hot sandwiches, burgers and much else, pub food staples like fish and chips are on offer. (Highly recommend that one.) Unlike a real pub, however, there is table service!
