The food was decent. Nothing that’s going to blow you away, but at a place like this it’s nit supposed to. The host stand was a confused jumble and people were jumping line. My biggest complaint was our waiter. Matthew was inattentive and infrequent. We waited 20 minutes for our check without even so much as an apology. Go here, the food is good. But if Matthew is your waiter, just avoid the frustration and ask to be seated elsewhere.

Loud and busy atmosphere, inside and out, which was expected. Drinks were tasty but very weak, which is common. Food was surprisingly average. Beer cheese soup was very good. Burger was dry, nowhere near “medium” which was what I ordered. Waiter was polite. Overpriced for the quality of food.

This is in a very popular spot in downtown Denver, right along the 16th St. mall area. The free mall bus goes up and down the street, so it’s easy to get to.

Wide, wide range of beers on tap. Excellent bartenders, and a very vibrant atmosphere. We were there on a Tuesday, and it was quite busy. The menu was above what you would expect for a bar. Appetizers were generous, and you could almost do a little tapas thing and have a few appetizers spread among some people that would be the equivalent of a meal. The burgers looked great. And the open kitchen added a very nice environmental twist. It looked to have a steady blend of tourists, as well as people who work downtown and were maybe looking to grab a bite before they took the train home. Would definitely come here again. And, since we’re here for couple more days, that might happen.

We were there visiting downtown and were glad we found this place. It’s located next to Union Station which was our original destination. The waitress was very friendly and served us promptly even though they were busy. The lunch crowd seemed to be mostly locals that work in the area. There are several places that you can walk to that will give you a feel of the area. But this restaurant was welcome respite from a long day of walking. The food was fantastic along with friendly atmosphere.
