Welcome to The Windjammer Roadhouse

The Windjammer opened in 1962 at its current location as an Ice Cream parlor. Several owners and many changes later, current Owners and Mangers continue to make subtle changes and upgrades to complete our family friendly restaurant and tavern.

With 5 employees and 1 manager the Windjammer serves its daily clientele but is also open for all and welcomes parties. Our restaurant current indoor dinning area holds 78 occupancy. We have a large beer garden that is perfect for spring, summer and fall parties, reserve in advance. Beer garden will hold 100+ comfortably. For certain events we extend our beer garden to our parking lot (special events permit is required) and our friendly neighbors let us use their field for extended parking. We've had weddings, retirement, anniversary and wake parties.

We serve a wide range of guest including families,boaters, bikers and tourists. We take pride in the restaurants family-friendly atmosphere and their established clientele, who they get to know by first name.

Most of our customers come from the Larimer county area and close by Boulder, Adams and Weld counties.
