This place was recommended by a local. Did not disappoint. Great vibe. Lots of energy. Good food and drinks. Really enjoyed our dinner here. They have live music too if you care to stay and enjoy. Easy walk from any hotel near the 16th street mall. Loved it.

My wife and I were staying in downtown Denver for the first time at the Hotel Monaco. We loved the area and all of the great restaurants, lounges and shops within walking distance. On Sunday 3/12/17, we decided to have an early dinner and stay for drinks at Appaloosa Grill. Of the many great places we visited, this was our... More

We stopped in for a snack and a drink. Our bartender was great and informed us of all the different types of interesting beer they had. We had the green chili, which was just great! We probably tried 3 different types of beer before heading on our way. It seemed like the nightlife in this place would be pretty awesome... More

We figured we would try it out! It was pretty good! We didn't do a full meal, but had a few beers and appetizers!

Good atmosphere, friendly service, good food. The Chicken sandwich was very good and sweet potato fries were done just right. A colleague who got the Bison burger gave it a big thumbs up. Not too expensive. They had lamb sliders. Hope to try it on the next trip.

I was here with three colleagues for lunch. The service was top-notch and the food was amazing! Make sure you get the Brussels sprouts! All four of us enjoyed our meals. Can't wait to go back.

Amazing food, so good we went twice. Bison burger is half pound of tender meat, Mac and cheese side is fantastic. Huge portion for $4. Chicken dinner, pork tenderloin wonderful. Fantastic carrots with chicken. Meatball appetizer stuffed with cheese is also great. Nice service. Had a great band at night.this is a quality restaurant.

Nine of us had dinner here while in town for an exhibition. The restaurant was busy but the service was good & we didn't have to wait long for our food. There were lots of nice choices on the menu, including for members of our party who didn't eat meat or were gluten intolerant. Everyone enjoyed their meal 😊

Thank NJMacEwan
