Best Fried Chicken around!

Love this place! We go specifically for the friend chicken. It is delicious! Just know that the fried chicken is made fresh to order so it takes a bit longer. Just order it right when you get there. Service is great too!

I am not one to send food back as it is a distraction to the table but if I could I would. Tried a Ruben this time with onion rings. Only ate one onion ring despite the extra charge because they were not even warm to the touch which tends to make them very greasy. My Ruben was warm on... More

The chicken is great and made fresh when you order it. Great comfort food. Building has a lot of history so it is fun to take people from out of town there. It has a old west feel to it.

We had dinner last Saturday at the Castle Cafe. The food was divine and the service excellent. The pan fried chicken is the best, done to perfection and never disappoints. The family style serving gave everyone plenty to eat and none was wasted. The Blueberry cobbler was very delicious and a big hit with our family.

I am a big fan of a good fried chicken dinner! The reputation and history of Castle Cafe is well-known in the Denver area so I was excited to check it out. First, the service was excellent. Our server was friendly and efficient. The signature menu item is pan-friend chicken, which was done to perfection. The real mashed potatoes and... More

My girlfriend and I met here for Sunday lunch. We both ordered the pan fried chicken which we were told they were well known for. No disappointment. The chicken was delicious and crisp as were the vegetables and mashed potatoes. Yummy. I think we had a new wait staff person so they did not get our salads and rolls to... More

We stopped here for our 30th wedding anniversary and were pleasantly surprised. The food is excellent and the server was friendly and knowledgeable. Try the buffalo meatloaf and the four layer chocolate cake. We stuffed ourselves!

Castle Cafe is a great local restaurant, great service, food and drinks. My favorite here is the chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes.

Delicious pan fried chicken, their specialty, which is cooked to order and juicy. Expect to wait around 30 minutes but it is worth it. With 4 pieces on the plate, one must have a healthy appetite, so I anticipated this and shared with my spouse. The burgers and other items looked adequate for the hungry individual. A fun place to...

We ate at the Castle Cafe after we heard very good recommendations from locals. "Have to have the pan fried chicken." Well, big disappointment. We went at noon and the place only has pan fried chicken on the dinner menu, not for lunch. The service was pleasant. The food was below average and priced above average. Guess some of the... More
