For a restaurant specializing in craft beer, their menu was pretty darn average. In addition their food was very mediocre - the schnitzel had zero taste, the spudpuppies had no flavor, etc. Not sure we'll be going back anytime soon.

We have dined at Freshcraft many times and this latest experience was quite odd. Server took our drink order and never returned. After 10-15 minutes I went to the hostess and asked for a server. Second server was very good. Hostess seemed flummoxed by the situation.

Freshcraft was fun. The seating in the booths in the longer, hallway-like area was nice and felt cozier than the front or the back areas. Service was great and the food was quite good. It was definitely pub-ish and the portions were well sized.

A holiday get-together with family from New Mexico. I chose Freshcraft because of the varied menu and nice beer selection. Music (where we were sitting) was pretty loud, but since we all liked it, it wasn't a problem.

Great place to drop-in and grab a bite before events at Pepsi Center. Meatloaf sliders and italian beef sammy were our picks of the evening - both great. Good selection of brews. We'll be back.

They couldn't find the OpenTable reservation. The pork entree was substandard, but the steak salad was good. The beer selection was not what I expected

The service was very friendly, but our food took quite a bit longer than usual this time, and it wasn't that crowded. Not sure what happened, but all was good once it came.

Pictures online were deceiving. This is a basic bar and grill. No ambiance. Food was average at best.

I was in town for a few days visiting a few friends and wanted to treat them to a nice dinner on my last night. My friend had suggested we try Freshcraft after I told her I had already gone to Avanti.

The food was EXCELLENT! The brussels sprouts appetizer was superb and incredibly succulent. The burger was phenomenal. The service was nothing spectacular, but he was attentive, knowledgeable and honest. I always appreciate a server who is honest enough to tell me what the restaurant's signature dishes are without trying to sell me on what's most beneficial for the server or the restaurant. The whiskey list was broad and featured well-known whiskies as well as other craft whiskies.

The price point was reasonable and very affordable. Overall, if I'm ever in Denver again, I'll definitely be back to dine at Freshcraft!
