Nice street views ,good food

Right on 16th st so easy access. Nice menu with good choices. We were seated right away by a cheery waitress and told about the specials that evening. We were seated indoors but the huge sliders were open so we had excellent street views. I had the steak with horseradish sauce and fries. Delicious... read more

Right on the 16th Downtown street. Food and service was GREAT! Can't remember my server's name, but she's the one with the pink shaved hair & tatts, but she was AWESOME!!! I had one of the best gyro's I've had there (it was one of her faves). She said the French dip was also popular. Had the mango mint margarita... More

Recently visited Denver and found this restaurant that had a variety of options for the entire family . Pulled pork sandwich was OK, burger was pretty good, chips and queso OK, chicken sandwich good. Fries were yummy and enjoyed the bloody mary bar.

Paramount is located on the 16th Street Mall. We were able to sit outside and watch the activity while eating. The food was excellent. Nice happy hour options. The two negatives - bathrooms smelled like vomit (night before?) and our waitress was quite rude with an attitude.

We were here with a group dining before a conference. The service was good considering the group of 25 women (some of whom arrived at different times). Happy hour cocktails were a good selection and made well (strong, but not too strong). My dinner consisted of the pulled pork and tater tots. Both were quite good. The entertainment on the... More

Nothing to complain about. Outdoor seating is nice. ..watching everyone. House wine sucks. ..don't even try it. Bartenders can mix some drinks though with a good variety of beers. Food is good.

Excellent place to grab a cold drink, have some nice food and hang out with some good folks. I found this to be where a lot of locals hang out after work and on the weekends. The service was fantastic, and the prices are very reasonable for the 16th street mall area.

This restaurant on the 16th Street mall is ok. I have no major complaints, but I believe there are a number of better options on the 16th Street Mall.

My husband and I went here based on the variety of the food on the outside menu. There was moderately slow service and not many people since we went after the lunch crowd. We ordered the fried pickles which were lightly breaded and we liked that. The portion sizes were huge so you might not order that if you only... More
