Visited this establishment twice during my recent trip, and both times were very pleasant. The bar was crowded and noisy both times, and the restaurant was packed also. I was lucky to get a seat at the bar both times. It was amusing watching patrons try to strike a match on the bar top with little success to lite their smokes. The food was great, one dish of Buffalo Carpaccio and a rare burger with blue cheese finished it off. The beer was OK, not overwhelming by any means. They had 7 different styles on tap. I had the same bartender both trips, and he was knowledgable about the styles. I had 4 different styles during the two visits and all were mediocre. This place is for beef lovers, but don't expect phenominal beers - just decent enough to enjoy with the food.

This place reminds me of a famous Yogi Berra quote. When asked by his teammates to join them after a game at a local NY hotspot, Berra responded, "Nobody goes there anymore. It's too crowded."

The Chophouse was that and more during my visit at GABF time, which, admittedly, might not have been the best time to go. But I had heard much about the place, and as a writer, I was compelled to assess it.

Once I got past the lines that snaked out the door into LoDo, I liked the decor and the ambience; there was a loud, lively, wonderful "brewpub hubbub" about the place. Stuff was happenin' here.

Its beers were certainly acceptable, if not particularly memorable. I ordered a Sirloin steak--hey, it's a chophouse--and was not disappointed. I accompanied it with the current pale ale and they went well together.


My buddy, another writer, ordered a Filet Mignon which he described as close to orgasmic, but his assessment of the beers paralleled mine--good, not great.

Still it was an interesting evening, and given the length of the lines, certainly a worthwhile achievement, even if just to say, "Yeah. I got in the place."

BTW, the line was even longer when we left an hour and a half later. Yogi was nowhere in sight.
