Looking for a light meal. Stop by here because of the variety of drafts they had. It was happy hour and they had special appetizers. We ended up with Rocky Mountain oysters and bacon macaroni and cheese with bison sausage. Not what we expected. Awesome...More

We always make it a point to stop in here for a cocktail and live music when we are in Denver. Always something new, and very convenient for downtown visitors.

Good food in a happening area, was referred to us by the hotel. Good was very good, Buffalo and Elk burgers were great. Definitely stands out in a popular street. The atmosphere is a little fancy for our group and the day.

Great game meats like elk carpaccio, gluten-free bison meatballs and baked goat cheese for those who are cow-dairy intolerant, as appetizers. In-house cold-smoked smoked trout salad main course was excellent. My buddy Al's lamb chop looked great and was done a perfect medium-rare. My daughter...More

A good place if you enjoy loud music and patrons. I had dessert and Irish coffee and both were disappointing. Cold Irish coffee and dessert that tasted mass produced.
