In recovery from a seriously bad experience at the nearby RedRock, I was happy to find that Squatters was able to soothe my ailment to some degree. Atmosphere a lot better with much higher quality and welcoming decor. The place was crowded with conferencing chemists, but a lone stool at the bar made itself available. The selection would have scored higher had not the barstaff's opening gambit been a long list of beers that they were out of; it is hard to take a place really seriously if they can't manage to keep beer flowing. A management issue. Again denied an IPA, I had to make do with a pale ale. This was served in a generous 0.5 L glass with room to spare (don't you hate those short-changed "pints" which are more like a half?). This was more like real beer, with lively head, flavor and freshness. I had no food so cannot speak to that. I would go there again and would hope to find more things available.

Squatters Pub in downtown Salt Lake is a cool and funky little spot, with a nice build-out, decent service and a view onto the brewhouse (which I always like to see). They had 10 taps (including one cask), 6 house bottles (for >4% beers) and 3 guest bottles (or "sister wives" as they put it). The beers are decent enough, if not groundbreaking; it could be worth a stop if you're in the downtown area.

Been here many times. Food and beer is really good, but some of those UT laws can fuck it up. Also, they charged me 3 times for my bill, until corrected.

Had a nitro vanilla porter for first libation. Enjoyable for the style. Fish and chips was my entree. Well, actually onion rings. Only two pieces of fish though. But the reason for this stop was not beer or food - but rather High West Campfire whiskey. A solid dram - while expecting something on the smokes side, I really didn't pick up any of that essence. But the notes included cinnamon, fudge and an outstanding finish. Still looking for a sample of High West Mid Winter night ... might try the tasting room at the airport tomorrow.

Good bar food - burgers, sandwiches, salads, appetizers. Decent selection of their beers. Very good overall.

Great food and a solid selection of house brews. Come for the food, stay for the lively atmosphere, and buy some bottles to take home with you. The service was outstanding as well. I'll be back here on my next visit.

I used to be a regular here when I was at the U of U. I love this place. GREAT food and chasing tail will always hold a very special place in my heart. I come here every time I go back home.

Visited on my first night of two nights staying in downtown SLC; a much needed rest after about 16 days of camping on and off. We actually arrived here during a Mormon holiday but this place was still open for regular hours and quite busy actually. As far as brewpub beer goes the product was above average with clean and fresh flavors. We had some appetizers which were good. Decor was good and the bar was just huge. They also had a nice setup upstairs with a smaller bar and view of the kitchen. Worth a shot for any craft fan and especially those who are into brewpubs specifically. In a land of limited beer opportunities it was nice to see places like this, BeerHive, Uinta and Epic.

Squatters Pub is a nice airy space with soaring ceilings, exposed brick, wooden beams and posts. There are well worn wooden floor and some nice art work and banners (Oktoberfest Banners when I was there).

The long two section bar is on the right, tables to the left. The tanks are behind the front part of the bar, the open kitchen behind the back part of the bar. There is more seating in back plus they have a nice patio.

I counted 12 regular drafts and 6 rotators. I had a couple of drafts and thought they were solid. Bottle selections have more abv, so keep that in mind if you want a bigger beer.

The food was tasty and the menu is definitely a step-up from normal pub grub. I had some tasty carnitas tacos.

Service was friendly and seemed beer savvy.

I enjoyed my visit and I think most BA s will.
