What are your first three food and drink related visits when you head to your hometown? What do you order? Fried Clams from Kelly's? Supreme Sauce from Raynor's? A slice from Joe's? A take out order of a green-chili cheeseburger from The Owl Cafe? Maybe it's that hot dog from Pink's or those sticky ribs from Thelma's. Or do you head home for a bowl of Mom's chicken soup and brisket? We return to these classic spots for the comfort, the subtly unique flavor, the consistency, the familiarity, and the memories of both the food and the experience. Only one place can set the standard for certain foods. Lovers of food have their own "greatest hits collection." We yearn for that blissful moment that uses the powers of food, smell, sight, taste, and memory to take us to a happy place; that after school hangout, the corner deli, the pizza place and sometimes even Mom's kitchen. Steuben's is named after a restaurant in Boston that my Great Uncles, Max and Joe, opened in 1945. Steuben's became a famous Boston restaurant, nightclub, and hotspot from the 1940's to the 1960's on Boylston Street. The Vienna Room, The Cave, and The Blue Room were all part of the Steuben's space and hosted Big Band, Jazz, and Swing groups with The Rat Pack, Proms and Sweet Sixteens and more. In its prime, Steuben's was the center of the Boston dining and nightlife scene. Steuben's, Denver, is a restaurant that respects the history of its name and the core ingredients of the American Regional classics we have attempted to recreate. These dishes are America's cuisine and American's interpretations of the dishes of our diverse cultural heritage. We have enjoyed the endless debates, opinions, stories, research, consultations and food memories that have led us to the opening version of the Steuben's menu. Eat at Steuben's. Take-Out from Steuben's. Drink at Steuben's. Feel at home, in Denver, at Steuben's.

Good Lunch, Great Service

My wife and I stopped by Steuben's for lunch in Denver before heading to Breckenridge. Found Steuben's after searching Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives for restaurants in Denver. We were not disappointed in the food or service. We arrived about 11:30am so it was not crowded so we had a choice of... read more

I lived in Denver for three years and can confidently say that Steuben's was my favorite restaurant. In fact, it's still one of my all-time favorites. Everything about Steuben's is awesome - the fun and friendly staff, the delicious menu with tons of variety, the vibe, the drinks, etc. It's the perfect spot whether you're out with your significant other...

What a great lunch we had! We went on a Monday and it was actually after lunchtime but still the afternoon. They had happy hour specials going on, both food and drink. My boyfriend ordered a bourbon shake (not specially priced, but KILLER!) and I ordered a Schoenling Little Kings. I was so excited to see this retro beer that... More

I loved the atmosphere and decor of the restaurant. The service was great and we really enjoyed our food. My husband had the fried chicken with mashed potatoes and a biscuit that had some sweetness to it. I had a chicken chopped salad which was good. I have a nut allergy and they were careful with my order once I... More

This was our first stop in Denver since we were starving when we got off the plane. All of the food was sooo good! We snacked on a grilled cheese sandwich with avocado, French fries, and home style Mac and cheese. Everything was great, including the service! Out waitress and the hostess were very polite and attentive. Parking was a... More

Tasty comfort food and fun and lively setting. We waiting about 20 minutes for a table outside and it was worth it - the patio was very nice and our server was attentive and fun.

We only stopped here because it was on the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives list of places to eat in Denver. We drove around the block numerous of times trying to find a place to park. It was a packed house. We were given a set outside. It was very hot out and the sun was beating right on us and... More

A nice place for decent food and a fair wine selection. I had the opportunity to eat here twice in one week. Thegrilled cheese sandwich was actually quite good. The deviled eggs appetizer was ok. I had both lunch and dinner here. The service was good. The atmosphere was good but loud.overall this was a good place to eat.

Stopped in here late after a long work day. What a cool place! The vibe is cool & funky. Very knowledgable bar tenders with great cocktails. Seemed like there was a good mix of regulars & conventioneers. Ordered the green chili cheese burger with a side of fried Brussels sprouts. Really tasty and came with a great house cured pickle....
