Absolutely love Freshcraft! They always have an amazing selection of beers and their food is simply outstanding. I love that they frequently change up the menu so there is always new and amazing food to experience.

We walked into Freshcraft for a quick bite to eat. We expected basic bar food based on how the place looked but were pleasantly surprised at how outstanding the food was. We both got the steak and frites. Fries, steak, and Brussels sprouts were cooked perfectly and were delicious. Beer menu was quite expansive as well. Would definitely go again.

The drinks were not good and incredibly bland. The waitress did not seem happy to be there and she was very short with us. We ordered fried pickles and pretzel bites with for our apps and as soon as they came out we were worried. The food was so bad that we had them cancel our dinner order and bring us the checks right away. They were kind enough to not charge us for the apps that we were unable to consume. I would not recommend this place to anyone!

Stopped in for a bite to eat and a beer while on a weekend visit to Denver. Down to earth place close to Union Station. It was very early so we had the place just about to ourselves and chose to escape the summer heat and sit inside.

From the get go the Manager and bartender were very attentive and accommodating, helping us select beers and offered recommendations for food.

We ordered Brussels Sprouts, flash fried in their special sauce, and shared their classic Reuben sandwich with hand cut fries. For simple food it was delicious and portion sizes generous. Plenty enough for two to share. We had a couple of local beers and left to visit more bars around Denver, but found ourselves drawn back there for a nightcap before last call!

Highly recommend this little gem on Blake Street if you are in town!

We reserved just to get some meat and beer...we got the beer but not the meat :"We ran out' we were told. We had to drink the bear without food and had to go to a steak place after that. Server was nice, cook came to apologize and pretzel appetizer was on the house( pretzels were disappointing having been fried)

The cocktails were very lack luster, service was horrible and there were only two other tables dining. Food was ok at best. An easy place to not visit again.

I’m not sure if this place is struggling because of corona or what, but they aren’t going to be in business long if they continue this way. I went in on a Wednesday night at 7 pm and there were only 2 other tables there yet somehow they were out of 4 items on the menu... and big items like biscuits. They would not substitute anything for the missing items, nor would they provide a discount... I’m sorry but it is ridiculous to expect someone to pay $19 for chicken and biscuits when you’re out of biscuits. I tried to switch to other things on the menu, but they were out of several other key items as well. I finally ended up just choosing the chicken and biscuits (with no biscuits) and the dude that cane with it (Brussels sprouts) was all leaves and no actual substance. It felt like they had picked all the leaves off of 2 Brussels sprouts to be cheap but look like they were still giving a side. The macaroni and cheese was good, but not sure how you can really mess that up. I would definitely take your money elsewhere for sure.

No fun, average food at best, poor service. You would think they would be happy to see customers at this point. Their beer selection is good, go there for that only.

Went to Freshcraft before Avalanche Hockey game. Food was delicious, server very friendly and ambiance was perfect. Was our first time eating here. Only thing is that due to Hockey game it took a while to get food and drinks. Id come early if going to an event.

We were very disappointed with the menu and availability of items on the menu. Infused vodkas on menu were not available. Appetizers we wanted were no longer available. And the appetizers we ordered were very disappointing. Pretzel bites were under cooked. At that point we decided not to stay for dinner. We had one drink, ate some of the disappointing appetizers, paid our check and went down the street to Jax Seafood. We were extremely disappointed.

The food was excellent, but we waited an hour for it to be delivered. I would understand if it was busy, but there were maybe 4 tables seated when we arrived and 2 when we left.

The atmosphere was nice, service was excellent. The food came in very large portions so I got more than I was expecting but it was all good food. We were there during happy hour which is a great deal on apps and drinks.

My wife and I decided to give Freshcraft a try and we were not disappointed. Pork tenderloin sandwich rivaled any I had growing up in Iowa.
The Mac and cheese had some kick to it and was very flavorful
Well done

We went on a game day and it was pretty busy. But the burgers were so over cooked they were barely edible. This is a beer place, they should have the burger down pat.

Good food, great beer and attentive service. One small complaint. I ordered a side salad instead of a side for what I was told would be an up charge, which is fine. I was actually give a $1 credit for no side and full charge on the salad. Had I known that would happen, for a dollar I would have gotten the side too.

Our group of 5 had a great time at Freshcraft. The food was great and our server, Haley, made some awesome recommendations. The pretzel bites were delicious and she recommended an awesome beer that paired really well with it. She kept an eye on us and was always there to refill our beverages or get us an extra dipping sauce. Truly great service! Will definitely be returning!!

Freshcraft used to be one of my favorite restaurants downtown Denver, but we left quite disappointed last Saturday. We had to remind the server that we were still waiting for the beverage, but it still didn't arrive until after the food. We also asked for butter for the steak, but never received it. When clearing away the empty plates after the meals were finished we were asked by the server if we still wanted the butter, which was really strange.
Since my girlfriend and I met at Freshcraft 1 year ago, we were hoping that someone might acknowledge our anniversary, since we marked it when making our OpenTable reservation, but no such luck.
