Not bad at all! – Good, freindly service. Food was okay. Great beers (try the Frambrozen). Very loud in the restaurant area. Pool Hall is awesome.
Group events, pool and games and great date place – 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!
Dysfunctional Restaurant Policies – 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.
Pool players, college kids and businessmen convene at Denver's oldest brewpub. – In Short
The smell of wheat and hops greets you at the door, along with the din of folks drinking and laughing around the bar. A large dining room offers comfortable booths and several tables, easily pushed together to accommodate large groups. For a meal, go for the generous serving of seared-rare tuna or charbroiled elk medallions. To wash it all down, try one of Wynkoop speciality brews augmented with seasonal ingredients.
Good food, beer is hit or miss – 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.
