The Mayor is a nice place. The beer selection is extensive with 100 beers on tap. They frequently have beers that are hard to find elsewhere. However, it's kind of like cable TV- 100 channels and nothing on. I find that sometimes they don't have anything that I want. The servers are generally friendly and somewhat knowledgeable. They are a little too reluctant to provide samples of beers- after all, they have a lot of beers that most people have never tasted before. The problem is that when you are paying $8 for a beer, you don't want to get stuck with one that you don't like. We ordered sandwiches and they were very tasty and reasonably priced. But the beers are very pricey and there is NEVER A HAPPY HOUR- EVER. Most beers are $6 for a pint but double IPAs and other higher ABV beers are $8 for an 8- ounce glass. I just cannot afford to visit this place often- particularly when there are so many other bars in Fort Collins with a good selection and $2-3 pints.

Atmosphere: Dimly lit and spacious with a huge bar and projector above the bar showing an up-to-date list of all the beer on tap. Looked like a college-age crowd. Usual busy bar volume level.
Quality: Good beer, if you order what you like to drink.
Service: We ordered flights and some appetizers and they all came without a long wait.
Selection: Here's where this place really outdoes itself, offering 100 or so beers on tap. Was fortunate to try PtE, Enjoy By, and some of the more rare DFH releases.
Food: Standard bar fare.
Value: Don't remember since I wasn't the one who picked up the tab but I don't recall being shocked by the flight price on the menu.

When I walked in the door, I thought, "Alright, this place is not terrible, definitely not a dive bar." But that thought was quickly followed by, "Not really anything special or different from the other bars around Fort Collins, either."
It was midday, around three in the afternoon on a Friday. The place wasn't very crowded so i expected to be greeted quickly. I was, a man walked up, dropped two menu's and quickly left. I figured he would be back shortly. I waited nearly ten minutes before I was greeted by a short gal. She asked if I'd had time to decide what I wanted, seeming frazzled and like I should hurry so she could get back to other more important things. I had several questions regarding the 100 beers they had on tap, I do not enjoy IPA's or Fruit Beers and I wanted her opinion on their selection of ambers and porters. However, her demeanor made me think asking questions would only put her in a more frazzled state.
I looked down and chose an amber beer at random, picking solely off the name. She asked if I wanted food as well. My first thought was, "If this is your attitude, why would I want to stay for more than one beer?" I said possibly and she retreated without a second glance.
She did deliver my beer quickly, but the beer itself left much to be desired. It just didn't suit my palate and I can't help but wonder if she had been more pleasant if I would have been able to find a beer that hit the spot.
I wandered to the bar after my first beer in hopes of talking with the bartender more about their beers. Instead of being helpful, he made me feel less than welcome and like my questions were a nuisance. Needless to say, I did not order a second beer.
I left feeling like I wore jeans and t-shirt to a black tie event and with a bitter taste in my mouth. I will not be back.

The Mayor of Old Town boasts "the largest beer selection in Fort Collins". While they do have an impressive amount of beers on tap, the wide array of beers can not distract from the terrible service. The wait staff spends the majority of their time standing by the bar, looking at their phones and while I was there, I even heard two of the staff gossiping and bad mouthing their tables. Not to make matters worse, the owners seem more focused on downing drinks with their friends at their special reserved table, than they do on ensuring that their staff are well trained and paying attention to their customers.
I enjoyed the beer selection, but the poor service, terrible food and general disinterest the owners show in their establishment will not have me returning.
