About a mile walk from the Bayou, this feels like you are well out into the burbs as you make your way there. It is inside the Trolley Square shopping center on the second floor. I got there about 10PM when the rest of the square was closed (although the exterior doors were still open), which did have a bit of a ghost town feel about it. Inside the brewpub there was a bit more going on, but still far from busy. I ordered a burrito off the late night menu which was surprisingly tasty, and went through a few 69 cent tasters. Beer was so-so, but the bartender was super cool; we chatted for a while about the vagaries of Utah alcohol laws, it was interesting and informative. Not sure why this place gets so many low reviews; perhaps its a bit different while the mall/square is open.
A short walk from the Red Line Trax stop to Trolley Square. Kind of a neat/cute little shopping center, though unfortunately also had a bit of a ghost town feel in certain spots where there were a lot of empty storefronts.
The brewpub is a bit hard to find, but it’s there. You go upstairs into the bar and dining room area. I was sort of confused because they sort of seemed to also share a space with another business, but I don’t know if that’s actually the case...
Anyway, sat at the bar and tried all their drafts. Beer quality was on the lower end, but some okay offerings.
The service was at least friendly and quick, but the place was sort of vacant and dead...I guess that’s what happens when you’re at a brewpub at 3pm on a Thursday.
Alright stop, but wouldn’t go out of my way to come here. But, there is a cool little garden/park just down the street called Gilgal Sculpture Garden that features a lot of interesting statues and sculptures. They’re all Mormon themed and there’s a strong religious tone to all the art, but it’s interesting...and you can see a depiction of a sphinx with the head of Joseph Smith. Thanks to Bonnie for the heads up on that.
Good food, tasty beers, and the worst service I have ever received. This is the second time with a small group where we where constantly being brought the wrong food and beer. Then when you go to pay they cannot split bill while ordering so you tell them what you ordered and they will mark it off as payed. This fails every time because somehow there will always be several items that are not accounted for and you will have to pay for them. DO NOT GO HERE WITH A GROUP.
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.
kinda cool upstairs local in an industrial building in a historic neighborhood. nine house beers available (one was a kristalweiss!!!! very cool).
great service even though the place was packed at lunch. didn’t eat but the food looks and smells a lot better than typical fare... as does the entire menu
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.
