Great sandwiches and pasta salads. Iíve had about everything on the menu. Great place to go on an afternoon date or just to have lunch with your pals. The beer is good, not great, good. Selection isnt the best with only 4 beers on tap. Surrounded by antiqued brick and iron, the feel is very old school pub. Nice bar, and outdoor patio. Very laid back, classy, downtown feel.

Located in a cool building, really enjoyed the food (higher class than average brew pub) and one of the few places in Utah to get "real ale".

Great location in Trolley Square. The place was not busy on an early weekday afternoon. Service was very fast and friendly. Beers were good, food was great. Great prices on food and brews. Will visit again.

The brewpub is located inside a sort of mall complex called trolley square. The overall feel is like a restaurant of OK quality. The prices are great, and the food is quite good, with a bunch of healthy stuff. The beer is also above average, especially in the context of Utahís stupid beer laws they do a great job. I like this place a lot. During the week itís pretty damn quite, but weekends are busy.

Nice open atmosphere, good service. Iíve been in here several times during the week and it is always fairly empty, weekends maybe different. They have 8 beers on tap, one nitro and one cask. The food is decent, prices are on the high side for lunch.

I took the beer class there and had a good time, but honestly, the beer there tastes like all the rest of the beer in Utah -no better, no worse.. Canít put my finger on it, but there is a general, basic flavor to Utah beer.. kind of as if malt was being used to mask something, like say, the lack of alchohol? People talk about 3.2 ABV just being a number, but honestly most micros in utah are far below that figure as if they mistakenly go over 3.2, the fines levied will wipe them out. That said, the food in the "beer school" was amazing. The guy who ran it was allready drunk when it started, (but whatever, we all were when the night ended), The amber were good, but the wheat beer tasted liked coors with hops. the stout was quite bitter, good if you are into that sort of thing. Iíll stick to homebrewing and bottles, but if youíre ever out christmas shopping in the mall and want to lose the wife for a couple pints, this is the place to go.

Great location. The historic Trolley Square is really cool. The actual pub seems a bit empty... not as in customers but as in ambiance. Nothing on the wall. The bar was empty of bottles or anything. I peered through the window at the brewery outside and it was filthy. Really old and dirty. Made me think twice about what the beers were like. <gulp> I did try a bunch of the beers and the only one I found drinkable was the Later Days Stout. The rest tasted a bit like soap. The food was typical pub fare. Your average soups and sandwiches. Nothing special. This place has a lot of potential.

Desert Edge is kind of unique. They have food that tends towards lighter and healthier. Well, I guess thatís the unique part. Unfortunately, I think the beer has dropped in quality. About a year ago, I loved it. A lot of the offerings were interesting, or at least solid. The last couple of times Iíve gone there this wasnít the case. In particular it tastes like the beer was made with old hops, giving it this grassy flavor. Itís unfortunate because I really like the place (especially the hot roast beef sandwich!)

This place is tucked away into a small rustic looking shopping and dining plaza. Iíve been told the food is excellent. Very organic and healthy fare. Iíll have to try some next time Iím able to stop by. They had about six house offerings on tap including one nitro and one cask option. More proof the SLCís craft brew scene is blooming with places like Red Rock, Bayou and Squatters all just a couple minute drive from here.
