Description: 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.

Ate here with a colleague while in town on business. It was really busy on a Wednesday night which was a good sign but we only waited a couple of minutes for a table. Despite the restaurant being full, we were served quickly. The menu had lots of interesting choices, including a separate gluten free menu which gave my colleague... More

Whenever downtown, and needing a fix of homey comfort food, or suffering from Olympia withdrawals (It's the Water!), this is the place. It makes my mouth water just thinking of Steuben's. Oh man the gravy/cheese fries (they call it Poutine in Canada) or the cheese steak or Mmmhmmm the Cuban sandwich. Yum, yum, yum. I'm suddenly thinking i need to... More

Located in a restored garage, this super-busy restaurant/bar is cool. We had a few jazzed up classic cocktails with the chicken and waffles...the best C&W's we've ever eaten.

This place has good homestyle food. Good pricing looks and it looks like a neighborhood place, to tell the truth.

We went there there with friends who live in Denver and eat there regularly so we knew in advance that the parking is crazy and there is always a wait. So worth it! The atmosphere is fun and funky and the food is great. Our friends insisted on a serving of mac and cheese for the table to share and... More

We found Steuben's by the Diners, Drive In and Dives show. We were in Denver and decided to eat there. We were there at approximately 11:15 am. You could tell it is normally a busy place but with the Christmas Holiday weekend it was even more so. We tried the steubie snacks and loved them. They are pieces of pork... More

We went to Steuben's with my brother and his wife on Christmas Eve. He'd been hammering to go there since he found they had a Maine lobster roll (lobster flown in weekly). The style of the restaurant was instantly intriguing. The mid-20th century layout and decor with classic American rock/jazz/funk rhythms tickled my inner dance superstar just enough. The food...

I have to admit the food at Steuben's is Fantastic! Everything I have tried has been delicious. Parking can be a challenge but it is worth it. I hope you get a chance to enjoy their food.

We've been here several times and found the food to be better than average no matter what we ordered. The prices are right and the portions are above average. Good place to eat with friends. Not a place for a quiet lunch or dinner. We were there on a Saturday noontime. Extremely busy, but that's because business is good. My... More

Seriously, who in their right mind would deep-fry pieces of pork belly and dust them with powdered sugar? But it works! I'd eat here just for that, but we enjoyed everything we had. In fact, we liked it enough that we had dinner here twice in the four nights we stayed in Denver. The waitstaff are certainly part of the... More
