The food here seemed average. The beer selection is more impressive. They having seating indoors and out. Sitting the patio is entertaining if you are into people watching.

My 11 year old son loved this place, so we went twice. It's a basic diner/ sports bar. The food was reasonable priced. I had the ahi tuna fish taco. It was my first experience with rare tuna. It was delicious. My son had a burger and fries. He loved his oversized burger. As I stated in other post, dining... More

A youthful atmosphere. Staff are casual and spend a great deal conversing with each other. Food was predictable. Probably a better place to have an informal lunch. There is out door seating and this place is usually crowded.

My waitress was outstanding and the food I ordered was super-yummy. I ordered the bbq elk burger and will probably order it next time I'm there, too!

Great atmosphere on the 16th Street Mall in Denver. Great service, terrific food. Something on the menu for everyone, visited twice enjoyed the Bison burger, (they also have lamb or elk). No grease involved on either visit and their tropical sangria is out of this world.

We ate here twice while in Denver and both times the food was delicious and the server was very helpful. The first time it was for lunch - and we were seated outside. We loved the people watching so much that we did not mind the fact that the food was taking a very long time. Apparently they got slammed... More

This was a stop after dinner for us, so we had no food. Even being stuffed from dinner at the Appaloosa Grill, the smell of grilling ground beef coming from the kitchen was killing us. The kitchen was putting off this great, greasy smell of the kind of burger you can usually only find in a bowling alley or truck... More

Located on the 16th street mall is the only reason this place is still in business. The service terrible anyway you look at it. Just go a block in either direction.

We had a great afternoon at the bar watching the USA v Portugal World Cup game. The staff were great. Offered me samples of the 60 odd beers on tap, were quick and looked after us really well. Bar food was fine. Seems to be an efficient place with good attitude amongst the wait and bar team. One issue is... More

We have visited the Paramount Cafe numerous times. The drinks are good (and cheap), the food is great (and cheap), but the evening bar scene lacks everything the daytime service has. We were here late night and the bar smelled like vomit and urine, the bar was understaffed, and the people at the bar were.... well... they were interesting. Will... More
