In town for Ironman and had to check out this place. My dinner might have been the best dinner I've ever had in my life. I ordered the special--the filet, which was on top of asparagus, and on top of the steak were crab cakes. Oh my was it fantastic. Divine!! Steak cooked perfectly!! Also chose broccolini as my side...

We had steak and seafood and both were some of the best we've ever eaten! Cool atmosphere and excellent service.

I was disappointed in the Boulder Chop House. The experience was mediocre at best and I expected more. Being from Chicago, where there are truly amazing steak restaurants everywhere, I expect my steak to be the best cut, cooked perfectly (or not cooked as the case may be), and wonderful sides. My steak was not cut particularly well, my rare... More

We were there a few weeks ago for dinner and it was just great! From the moment we walked in the door we were greeted by a lovely hostess who easily obliged our request to sit outside. The wait staff was right on us within a minute! We ordered the onion soup because we heard it was great...and it was!... More

I've eaten here twice (once by myself at the bar) and with friends in the dining room. I love there high quality variety of food and wine. Their dessert is definitely worth trying too.

The service was amazing - our waiter was fantastic, comical and made sure we had a great meal. The food was really great although my rib eye was a little under cooked and had a lot of fat. My wife and son had fillet's and I have to admit, they scored on their meal. The starters were fantastic and we... More

I have such mixed feelings here, it is already crowded if you get there late on certain nights. But they deserve a pat on the back. Great drinks, wonderful food and the service is always with a smile. The atmosphere is upscale pub (speaking of the bar). Try the French Onion Soup, Mussels and the fabulous Bison Burger. My husband... More

Both times I've dined here were during happy hour. We sat in the bar area and ordered from the bar menu. While I don't usually order mussels, my daughter wanted some and I thought they were delicious! I ordered the prime rib once and the steak frites the second time. I was very pleased with both food and drinks. The... More

Bartender, Gabriel is straight out of a movie! Sincere, fun and attentive. Waiter, Chris is hilarious and who ultimately made us continue to come back. Oh...and the food is awesome!
