Good drinks, Fabulous game day brunch!

We stayed at the Ritz for the weekend and it happened to be playoff football, so very busy, but impressed with the staff. They were engaging and still efficient. Had breakfast off the menu one day and brunch the next. Great food both times! Try a pineapple mimosa or a spicy bloody Mary!

The food isn't bad....it just doesn't match the value for the price. Frankly there are far better boutique, non chain restaurants in Denver than Elways. In fairness the drinks, while pricey were mixed well however the food was contrived, overly salted and average at best. The Calamari for example is served with deep fried bleu cheese stuffed olives....just say no... More

Went here for a business dinner. I ordered the shrimp cocktail for an app and the wedge salad for my main course. Every sauce and dressing I had was full of horseradish. Everything i had was too hot to enjoy. My husband had a filet, ordered medium-well, came out bloody. The price tag was too high for such mediocre food.

Came to eat on a Friday night. The hostess was nice and the wait staff was good. The food was not. I had a Filet which was over seasoned for my taste. Had a side of mashed potatoes which were bland and lumpy. The Cocktails were good. We were a group of four and only one liked what they ordered,... More

I love a good steak and Elway's did not disappoint. The steak was wonderful. I had the bone in filet and my brother had the bone in ribeye. We were both very satisfied. The hamburger did not disappoint either. The sides were wonderful and we were overall very pleased! Great dinner!

We went to Elways to celebrate a special wedding anniversary. The steaks were excellent but that was the only good thing I can say. The appetizer, sides and desserts were below average (especially the calamari). Also, we felt neglected by staff as there were several large business groups who were monopolizing their time and attention and taking care of us... More

Went with a friend for dinner, and we had both steak and seafood, and they were both fantastic. The service was attentive without being intrusive, which to me is a mark of excellence in a restaurant. We were intrigued by the ding dong for dessert, which was well-executed and tasty. All in all, a great experience.

From the service to the food Elway's never disappoints! Whenever we are in town Elways is always on our list of must experience meals. The Filet is sublime and the sides are perfectly prepared.

Had a wonderful steak dinner, with all the usually trimmings, bernaise sauce, salad, potatoes au gratin and a nice wine pairing. The service and atmosphere complimented the cuisine, making for a most pleasant dining experience.

I had planned a special trip to Denver for my husbands 30th, which of course included a game and a trip to Elways for a lovely dinner. I was expecting an average keg experience, but I had underestimated Elways. From the moment we sat down, everything was perfect. We looked over the menu and even had our own sommelier to... More
