Wish we could’ve gotten a seat here. They said there was a half hour wait when we arrived, but half the seats were empty -- excuse was short staff. Wasn’t impressed with this and felt the need to write a review based on this.
Was better before they messed up the liquor license (though Utah’s insane liquor laws are the biggest problem). Much better now that they have "high point" beer selections (ALL draft beers in Utah are 4% ABV/3.2%ABW maximum). The ARGO ESB is great, food is mixed but many good options.
Stopped in around 4:30 PM on a Wednesday on a trip to Ogden. Place was pretty dead. Attractive bar with stamped metal facing and a view of the brewing tanks. Sampled all six of the beers on tap. Pretty average stuff for the most part. By law you have to eat to drink. Our appetizer was quite tasty. Bartender seemed pretty unenthused but was attentive enough.
Nice location in historic downtown area. Average-to-OK beer and food at decent prices. If you happen to be near Ogden, it’s worth some rating ticks, but don’t plan your beer trip around this one. I like the feel better than the more corporate-styled location in Layton.
Popped in on my may from Salt Lake City to Ogden. Pub is located on a quaint street, reminds me of my hometown in rural Illinois with all of the pioneer storefronts. Place was kind of small, but with nice brickwork and a nice wooden bar. Since it was a Tuesday evening, pretty dead. I had two pints from an attentive bartender, and got back on the road. Beer offerings were rather slim: 4 regulars and 2 seasonals. Menu looked decent, but I didn’t order any food. Would visit again.
Great atmosphere, with interesting architecture and decorations. Roosters everywhere, of course. Service was just slightly above average. Food was good, but both entrees I tasted were over salted. One I couldn’t even finish because it was so salty. Beers were decent, especially with that 3.2 restriction. Gotta give this place props for being open on Sunday when just about every other restaurant in town was closed.

Been to the other Rooster’s by my house. I decided to check it out. The place is pretty big. There’s a bar, and eating area. I had a Brewhouse Burger which was not too bad (could be bigger though) also came with fries. I got there about 5:30pm (weekday) so there was not that many people there yet, but started to come in when I left at about 7:00pm. Nice atmosphere and some great service from the hostess. Would highly recommend visiting when your in the area. Beermail me and I’ll join you if you like, lol
Well I return once again to Ogden to make a quick trip through here for the seasonals and fine that nothing has changed. The same 4 house beers, ineffable service, complete disregard for anyone who is not a local or regular at the bar. 2 mediocre seasonals, in a blackbeery ale and a steam beer. Overall less than impressive once again. I gave them another chance and they failed. This will be the last time that I stop here in my travels.
