Downhill – It has been a while since I have been to Brewvies. While still a unique and enjoyable experience for those of us in SLC, it has dropped a couple of notches. When i first arrived a long line was extending out the door. Initially, I thought not big thing, being a Saturday, then I noticed four people were in the bar/restaurant side of things. Upon buying tickets for the movie, we were told go around the corner and wait in another equally long line to get food and drinks. After forcing our way past the teller to the empty bar we were greeted by a gruff bartender who was obviously annoyed by our buying beer and food at the 'wrong side.' Not being in a hurry, we ordered beer and wanted time to order food. This was an obvious inconvenience, shown by repeated long dramatic glances at the clock. Again we told him we were in no hurry to order food and would be ready to order when he returned with our drinks. This elicited the response, 'I'll wait for you' and again turned toward the clock. Basically, we felt like our presence was a tremendous annoyance to the staff. Again, the food was good, the beer cold and the movie experience great. I remember the place being very relaxed and accommodating. I'll be back for the good stuff, but if some competition opened up, I'd surely go there instead.
I wish there were more places like this! – I love Brewvies! The first time I went, I was hooked! They're always getting new movies, and most are really really good. Most the time it's the movies I meant to see in the theatres but didn't get to in time. Right after they leave the big expensive theaters they are played at Brewvies!!! And how can you beat a movie and beer AND food (if you so wish)? And they seem to pick most of the best new movies!
Some of their foods aren't the greatest ever, BUT their pizza bread is amazing, and the portions are HUGE! Nachos are good, hummus is great and of HUGE portions (as is everything really), potato wedges are good, various burgers and sandwiches are good, salads are large and amazing. I wouldn't suggest their brewvies burrito or most of their soups though. Perhaps just my opinion, but bleh.
I've also noticed over the past many months, they've gotten friendlier staff. Used to be not as friendly, and now it's like everyone's your friend! Kind of like on Cheers, but with movies and better lighting! :)
Did I forget to mention the pool tables? I believe there are 4 of them, and on certain days and times, pool is free! 2 arcade machines, a nice little patio to smoke on if you need... nice little table area in front of your theater seats to set your beer and food on.... I could pretty much live at Brewvies.
Don't bother – I ordered soup at this place and there was a dead fly in it. Most of the servers give poor service and have been rude 8 out of the 10 times I've been there in the past 6 months so you can't say I didn't give them a chance. The food is generally bland and a lot of their beer on tap is never in stock every time I've gone. You can see the same movies at the Sugarhouse Movies 10 for $1 instead
User review by mlueck – Excellent place to watch a movie with NO KIDS, NO BABIES! I won't even consider going to another theater. Great value, great leg room.
One of the greatest ideas in the valley: Combine a fun bar with a movie theater and enjoy the results. – The Scene
Brewvies operates as a low-cost theater (one or two months after their release, all the good movies end up here). Catch the occasional indie flick or a special screening of a classic. Don't think the movie's the only entertainment, though: Crowds show up for the beer specials, great food and the conversation-friendly atmosphere.
You've always wanted to eat dinner at a movie theater--now you can. Order a sandwich, a salad or a pizza and enjoy it while watching the flick. Want to wash it all down with some suds? Try one of the many ales, lagers or stouts on tap. Pints of brew and pitchers are reasonably priced, and movies cost just $4--$2 before 5pm.
User review by scminslc – Full selection of Uinta brews. Try the Scorpion pint. At $5.50 it is a great beer for the movies!!!
We had a great time! – We just discovered the place and we love it. The food was decent and it was great to get real food to take into a theater and wash down with a cold beer.
Speaking of the beer, I'm totally picky about what beer I like. I only like a Heifweizen and they actually had one! and on tap!! Also, they knew enough to serve it with a lemon slice just like it should be served. They also had Guiness on tap so my husband was happy too. What more could we ask?
Brewvies is the BEST – I have been going to Brewvies for years and have (almost) never been dissapointed. The staff have all been there for years and thank god, are down to earth, real people. Although they continue to tinker with the food, the menu always has something for everyone and the movies are great. The environment is relaxing, comfortable, and diverse. The pool tables are often free and the digital music is usually good (except when they play butt-rock!)
Needs Better Food – Its a great concept, but the food is consistently poor. Have a beer and watch some good flicks but avoid the food.
Great Movies Good Beer – This place is fun. Movies, Food and Beer. I've been a few times and had a lot of fun. It's not fine dining but the foods not that bad. One this is missing though... Bohemian on tap! What's up with that?
