We visited the Denver Chop House on our final night, quite late after the last session on Saturday. Normally I wouldn't go to a place like this at 10:30 for dinner, but what the hell.

Atmosphere: Great. Kind of like taking Morton's and a Brewpub and melding them. Decor, wait staff attire, service of Morton's with the bar and brewery view of a brewpub, with the customer attire somewhere in between. Very roaring twenties decor and feel.

Quality: Pretty good beers. I had a very enjoyable IPA premeal. Nothing mind blowing, but solid and tasty.

Service: Fantastic. They had no problem seating and waiting on us at 10:30 when we were probably the last table to sit and order. Knowledgeable, prompt, friendly, and fast service. Also worked with us to split up an unnecessarily complicated check (our fault not theirs).

Food: The food is fantastic. I had the Gorgonzola Buffalo Fillet and it was fantastic. Perfectly cooked and with some great sides.

Value: Beers here are about average price the food is not. I don't think there are many entres under $20. That said, the food is worth it, but not cheap. But it is a steak house so I wouldn't expect it to be.

Fantastic place to bring clients for a business diner or the significant other for a great night out. Also good to grab a beer at the bar if you want.

Went here on a recent trip to Denver. First place in town that I visited.

Impression in a nutshell is that this is not a "beer destination." Beer is an afterthought, with the focus being on food (GREAT!) and wine (didn't try). If you're looking for a neighborhood bar, this doesn't have that feel to me. If you want a very nice place for "date night" or a business dinner, this is your place.

Overall atmosphere was dark, but adequately lighted. Long bar with tv's - the Broncos were playing. The seating area had that dark, clubby look to it. I sat at the bar, more open, inviting, hopefully beer friendly.

Quality and selection were good, 6 or 7 beers on top, with a nice range. I had the Dortmunder and the Dark Munich, and both were decent interpretations of the beers.

Service started out a little slow, but picked up and kept up nicely during my visit. Attentive, but not hovering. Second bartender that served me was knowledgeable of the beers, even though he had only been there a few months.

Food was outstanding. This place is known for their steaks, but I opted for the lemoncella chicken. Fantastic! However, the first bartender commented that the portion would be "huge" - her words. I was expecting a huge half bird on my plate and hoping for leftovers the next day. Not so. Small, but adequately sized portion, enough to fill, but not stuff you. And the lemon flavors just exploded with each bite.

I think my final bill was around $35 - 40, an entree and two beers, plus tip.

There is a long bar along the right hand side with a lot of seating for dinners. A dark and dim pub with some artwork on the wall. Some 40's style jazz was playing when I walked in. A nice touch for me. Though more of a restaurant feel than a brewpub, or even just a neighborhood pub. Most of the people were drinking wine, or the "guest tap" of Coors. The service was decent, though unattentive at times and they don't know a lot about the beer. Just bartenders working for tips.

There is a wide variety of beers, though they are the masters of none. Of the nine beers I sampled, only two were any good. The pale being decent, and the Irish Stout being the best. Other beers ranged from a Pils, Dortumder, Munich Dark, Wheat, Red, bourbon barrel aged stout, to an odd Belgian/German hybrid. All are sub par to very below average. Some are just plan bad (Bourbon Stout). Really nothing that I would recommend.

I did not eat, but looks like this is more of a restaurant than anything. Not a place I would recommend for a beer destination. For the most part, the beer is just bad IMO. There are so many other better destinations than this in the area.

Denver Chop House is located on 19th Street not too far from Coors Field. Street parking is nearby as well as some garages in the vicinity but I imagine they are scarce during ball games.

As with other Chop House locations, the interior is dark with an upscale feel. The bar runs along the right side and affords a clear view of brewing equipment behind glass. The rest of the space is devoted to table seating.

The beer selection consists of around 11-12 taps, several of which are German themed (Vienna, Dortmunder, Munich Lager, Doppel Bock), plus the standard brewpub fare. There is also one specialty tap (Wild Turkey Stout). Overall the beers are average to above average. The beers are all available in a sampler.

Service was decent, although the place was absolutely packed on a weekday evening. The server did her best but didn't really spend a lot of time explaining the beers.

We did not try any food on this visit.

Overall this spot is worth checking out on a Denver beer trip, but it wouldn't be at the top of the list.

I went here with my parents the first night they were visiting me in Denver. Wanted to get a good steak, and I wanted some good beer to go with it. It didn't disappoint on either count.

The atmosphere is good - this is definitely a more upscale place and it shows in the detail. The service was good - they were responsive, and brought things out at a measured pace that ensured you could finish your salad before the steak. The food was excellent, and the beer was really good.

The beer was not spectacular, but quite tasty. I had their bourbon barrel stout which I thought was quite good. I would have loved to have gone for the sampler too, but given that I had to drive my folks around Denver, it would not have been the best decision.

It's definitely on the pricier side, but it's worth the splurge every once in a while. I need to get back over there and check out the bar. Seems like a good place to chill.
