Loved the waiter he was super nice and recommended good stuff. The wings tasted great but all the sauces were too spicy but we still loved them. It would be nice if one sauce was mild. I think my heart rate went up but it was like adrenaline. I loved it. The Cesar salad didn't have much chicken in it, was a bit disappointed. The ipa beers were great!

My friends and I came here for Cajun food. The crab cake was made with a delicious sauce inside. The gumbo was a dark, rich version. The shrimp and grits was good and a big portion. Unfortunately, the turkey reuben was way too salty. We think the chef must have been smoking something and put in too much salt:) I'm sure it isn't usually made this way. But the highlight was how our server handled it! She apologized about 4 times and even the manager came over to say "sorry". They really cared! We did order something quick to prepare to replace the reuben and that came out quickly. Then, they deducted a meal from our bill as a "customer satisfaction" credit. They couldn't have done more to make it right for us. We were all very impressed! Also have to mention that the selection of beers is amazing.

We ordered an artichoke dip appetizer which took a long time to get to our table and then didn't have all of the dippers mentioned on the menu so those had to be brought to us separately. The restaurant wasn't busy, but our wait staff person could have been a little more attentive. Thus our main dishes came on the heels of the appetizer. Everyone said their burger, sandwich or other food was good. The artichoke dip was a little disappointing. Apparently it was a new menu. The beer was wonderful - the very best part.

I’m not sure if this is the Oscar blues brewery or another pub with the Oscar blues name. The original one in Longmont was creative and set a high bar. This restaurant food is lacking. There’s nothing special to try that really uses their beer. Also oddly enough they have a good selection of beers. However, most of them are not Oscar blues beers. Guess that could be good and bad. Service was also sub par. They didn’t have enough staff to even handle the place being half full. I really wanted to like this place. I’ll just drive 40 minutes to go to original.

Food on a Sunday was awful. It took a long time to get out food and it tasted not amazing.

It’s a block from hour apt but this is the first time be eaten there. The food we had was excellent. My husband had a BBQ platter with dirty rice and Mac and cheese he loved it. So getting to me just let me say when I order my food it’s lie I’m dictating a dam prescription. I do not like anything spicy I grew up in an Irish Catholic home in New York and the only spice we ever had was salt and pepper and trust me that was more for company. The sever was great he took my older and didn’t make me feel like I was crazy which obviously I am. My food came out and it was perfect just the way I wanted it. I would definitely recommend this place great food fair price can’t go wrong.

I was a bit underwhelmed by this Oskar Blues location. I’ve been to the original location multiple times with very good experiences every time so I expected the same in downtown Denver. Unfortunately our server was pretty forgetful with forgetting my wife’s drink and then completely forgetting our appetizer. My food wasn’t quite up to par either. I had fish and chips and I felt like the fish was mushy and the breading was super crunchy. The ambiance was decent and I really liked the decor. Sadly, I probably won’t waste my time at this location again.

My favorite bar in Denver, awesome people and cool downstairs for live music. Live close and it is my only go to. Food is pricy but that is the only con!

Good service and super team. The waitstaff and management always seem eager to please. Fun spot, casual and easy to just grab a bite.

Originally selected this place because I wanted to try Oskar Blues beers I couldn't find in Texas, but I was pleasantly surprised by how good the roux was for the boudin balls and the crawfish etouffee. 40 taps for beers meant plenty of choices, and the vibe was relaxed.

It seemed like perhaps this place had really high reviews more for the experience/ambiance? We were pretty let down (foodwise). We had a group of 6, and everyone's food was "ok"... most items were over cooked and over priced. The drinks (cocktails) were "ok". Our server was really awesome and attentive though. We won't be back for food... but maybe for a band and just beers?

On a quiet Tuesday you'd expect service to be good, but it was excellent and Daniel really looked after us. The food was good, with good sized portions. As you'd expect, the choice of beer was excellent. Enjoyable night out, would go again. Only downside was it was on the expensive side.

For a place advertising for Mardi Gras, there wasn't a whole lot of Mardi Gras going on except for a view beads here and there. They didn't recommend any theme drinks or food, and didn't seem to be so busy for the amount of time drinks and food took. That being said, everything was lovely. It just wasn't the experience we were expecting.

Enjoyed our meal. Came here early with our kids. They loved the kids rib basket and we enjoyed the happy hour oysters. It's a fun bar atmosphere and at least early while we were still family friendly. Beers were great and a surprisingly well thought out if limited wine selection. Tablas Creek is a winner.

We came in on the grand opening night so knew it would be crazy, and it was- our server was a sweetheart and checked in with us often! We had the Fri gush/Chips special and it was delicious! We will be back! Love having this place in downtown Denver!

Oskar Blues Denver was a great find. When we went they weren't officially open yet, they recently had a Grand opening. The food was great, BBQ with a southern influences. They have a great local beer list featuring a lot of Oskar Blues beers. We were excited to go and will go back to see them in full swing.
As well they have a lower level where the menu, we were told, is different than upstairs and live entertainment.
