Racj if Lamb

The AMERICAN RACK OF LAMB was superb, moist, cooked to perfect medium. I highly recommend this restaurant and am sure the other entrees were equal. The bartender was very attentive and he suggested the rack of lamb.

The reception when I walked in I was greeted and as I came early and they seated me right away ! The waitress was outstanding making great recommendations!! Sat in the bar area great location! BTW the Elway Steak was super moist tender and seasoned to a perfection. The only downside was I should have ordered the larger size!!

Elways has a relatively new chef and it is not the restaurant of last year in May. The beef is local and flavorful. The breakfast is far better with fresh on premises squeezed juices. Drinks are made with real flair using quality spirits. The wine list is varied and the offerings are high quality. The service is flawless and the... More

After having craved for best steak in Denver, we missed the food serving time and jumped into Elways between 2-5pm. The receptionist turned us down for food, but the kind waiter, Terry O'Sullivan, offered to chase the Chef and serve us the expected steak. Afterall, it was fabulous and tasty, being European visitors from Ireland and Hungary, we did not... More

Elway's has a large bar with ample places to hang out either at the long bar, at the high tables or in a quiet corner. It is busy at nights and the beverage menu offers a great selection of wines by the glass, bourbon and much more. You can get light snacks as well.

We went for a business dinner in their private room. Our meal came very quick and the staff was excellent!! I also have had lunch on the patio and people watched. Even though I was eating alone and the only one outside, the staff checked on regularly and we're giving me places to go in Denver!

Stayed at the hotel and decided to have brunch there one afternoon. Reasonably priced with big portions.

Got thrown for a lupe through this evening... There were some bright spots, and some drags. NY Strip bone in was Damn good, cooked, charbroiled perfect and seasoned just right. Scallops were OK, a tad on the small side. Wedge salad was real different. 5 slices of bacon on the Wedge... Like a bacon salad. A bit overwhelming. No tomatoes?... More
