Highly recommend both the beer varities and the mussels in a savory wine-garlic-butter - yummy sauce...Ask for extra bread. Also the Gorganzola soup is fantastic!

My husband and I went here for our first date back in 1997. The atmosphere, food and beer was great. After years of living in Chicago, we moved back and have gone here twice. The first time back in 2009 was a disappointment, but we decided to give it a second chance last November. The place smelled like decades of food, dirt and grime buried in the floor, cracks and crevices of the brewery. The food was such a disappointment. The flavors and the quality was just not there. It's amazing how much this place has declined. We won't be coming back here.

Excellent place to start the night - good food and they have their own hot sauce that is incredible. It has beer mixed in it - kick ass.

The Wynkoop has good food - try the fish & chips! The beer is fantastic and fresh. I've held several work functions there - holiday party and day out to the ball game - both were excellent. The service is fantastic and the atmosphere is comfortable and casual. Great place for pool, shuffleboard & darts.

I took my wife here for her 30th birthday. So, they don't take reservations on the weekends and we were good consumers and made adjustments. We arrived and hour before our party was to arrive and was told that the wait was an hour, no problem. An hour and a half later I checked back with the host stand and was told that the GM of the Wynkoop came in with his own private party and took the seating area the host stand was reserving for us! We waited another 30 minutes only to have our party broken up over three tables. Not one person came by to apologize or offer and compensation for the horrible experiance, oh that's right the GM was to busy pushing around paying customers and feeding his own ego to care about anyone else.

Food: Excellent bar food at very good prices.
Service: Sub par, both nights.
Atmosphere/Layout: Great. A beautiful interior. VERY nice place and close to the Rockies stadium.
Beer: BAD! I was surprised. By far the worst beer I've ever had at any brew pub/brewery. I tried all, but one or two of the beers they have on tap (nearly a dozen). Their stout was okay and a few others were drinkable, but extremely unremarkable. Others were just god awful. Undrinkable. When I tell someone in my party a beer "tastes like food" when he asked how it was, you know you're in trouble.

The Wynkoop Brewery has something for everyone. The bottom floor is a Comedy Club offering shows throughout the week.

The main floor is the restaurant. The food can be pricey, but it never disappoints. The appetizers are good for a late night snack as well.

The top floor is where all the fun happens. The pool hall is the finest in Denver. There are also two shuffleboard tables and several dart boards for entertainment. The Microbrews are among the best you'll find and the service is first class all the time. Whether it is a company gathering or a relaxed night out on the town, you'll find the place to be at the Wynkoop Brewery.

The Wynkoop and WPBA Professional player, Melissa "The Viper" Little, have done some great work with providing high quality pool leagues and tournaments for junior pool players. They also have some great food at reasonable prices and are located in beautiful downtown Denver.

I have always loved the Wynkoop and it's one of my favorite places to hang out when I'm back in Denver. It's got some great brews, the food is really good and the ambiance is totally casual but upscale as well. Fun for people watching.

The restaurant was extremely warm, the music was way to loud. The waitress didn't speak above a whisper, the fish and chips were very disappointing. Not worth the money. With all the other restaurants in the area you would be wise to try them instead.

While walking around LoDo and the 16th Street Mall, my husband & I happened upon this place. Being lovers of great and unique beers, we thought it was worth a try at least. Boy, were we blown away. The beer is great (some of the best we've had), and the food is really good too. We actually expected to pay alot more given the amount of beer and food we'd ordered, but were pleasantly surprised when the bill arrived. Service was great on a busy Saturday evening, and everyone seemed really friendly. I can't wait to get back to Denver to revisit this place!

The wide array of beers and history of the Wynkoop are definitely the best reasons to visit and I think they hold their own as the only reason you'll need. Everything from standard ales to framboise is offered and if you've got the time, money and a ride home you should try each and every one! The appetizers are fillng and a good value. There is plenty of seating, but bellying up the bar for a game is a fun experience and a good way to meet lots of people.

Good, freindly service. Food was okay. Great beers (try the Frambrozen). Very loud in the restaurant area. Pool Hall is awesome.

I've spent many a first date at Wykoop and last summer brought my wedding party up to the 2nd floor for the night before the wedding party - really fun and even better since the smoking ban! It's such good beer, food is OK, but the fun is really where it is. The food is pretty average - we actually got fish and chips where the fish was still frozen inside once. Great Calamari though!

Pros: Great Beer, Great Ambience - cool relaxed place to hang out - great for very large groups

Cons: Food average at best, not that romantic, but no pressure scene

No food in the banquet room. They let you order the food but won't deliver it. Also, I've had three bad meals in a row there.

I have been coming here for years and every time I go I am impressed with how tasty the food and beer is and how professional and nice the staff are. My favourites are the fish and chips, buffalo burger (when I ate meat), their spinach artichoke dip was the first in town and remains the best! Their specialty beers are always tasty but the Railyard Ale is a wonderful standby :) I brought my little one there and the waitress spent quite a long time making sure /he/ was happy too!

Reservations are borderline necessary on the weekend - just so you know! Good "bar food" but with a little more character and variety than similar places. Think of it as CB&Potts on steroids.

Service is usually solid, but sitting at a table near the bar (not at the bar) will get you ignored.
Beers are hit or miss. The lighter beers and ales are so-so at best, but the darker varieties are excellent. They usually mix in 4-5 seasonal or smaller batch brews along with staples like the Chili beer. In the summer months the selection suffers a bit with mostly lighter selections. On the other hand, they have had excellent porters, barleywines, and even a schwartzbier.

Makes for a great place to eat before/after a game, show, or just an evening out.

Bustling crowds come for the rustic ambience, craft beers, the classic pool hall and the hearty eats. The beers are all brewed on site. We're particularly fond of the cask-conditioned ales, the chile beer and the Sagebrush stout. The star…
