    The wine list here is Super Bowl quality, full of classy labels like Rubicon and Andrew Will. The zingy charred red pepper soup, New York strip steak, and the grilled split artichokes are great picks. Read more

    Go to Elway's, NFL legend John Elway's watering hole in the suburb of Cherry Creek, for a great wine list and try the Japanese tuna stack. Read more

    Bacon and cheddar burger is delicious!

  • Denver Westword

    The bar is a major gathering place, and also a good spot to eat a more casual meal. A meal here isn't cheap, but for both the quality of the food and the company, it's well worth the price. Read more

    Alongside prime cuts you'll find Western-inspired creations like a BLT Salad with an over-easy duck egg, Spicy Steak Chili and a finger-licking Lamb Chop Fondue with green chile cheese dipping sauce. Read more

    Absolutely delicious tenderloin.

    Great service. Definitely get the sugary on potatoes. The calamari and Elway salmon is to die for.

    White cheddar and bacon burger mid rare...simply AWESOME!!

    One of the best filet mignon steaks I have ever had. Huge selection of local and imported wines will go great with the main course. Sadly, dessert was a letdown. Too many artificial flavors.

    Anthony R. · November 17, 2013
  • Davy D.

    Avoid the prime rib. Not as good as it should have been for the price. Way too much fat and gristle.

    Davy Davis · October 18, 2013

    Huge brunch portions.

    It's a classy steakhouse with $$$$ pricing. Some of the best food I've had in Colorado!

    lamb chop fondue is a must order!

    Kevin McKenna · June 21, 2013
  • Christopher M.

    This place exceeded my expectations! Dinner & service was amazingly superior! The chef went out of the way to make me bananas foster! Try the filet &/or lamb chops. Elway's special seasoning is bomb!

    Christopher Michael · June 11, 2013
  • Nate R.

    Not very impressive. I had the Bone-in Rib Eye. The Delmonico Rib-Eye at the Denver Chop much better!

    Hot Appetizer Tower and New Your Strip....Amazing!

    One of the absolute best meals I've had in Denver. Great steak and sides, and they gave us a free dessert for my boyfriend's birthday. Stellar.

    If only the wanna-be's would shut their mouths ... yes, it's overly loud for a high-end establishment; food is decent ...

    Ahi tuna appetizer very lack luster. My beet salad showed up unseasoned. Way to phone it in.

    Sit at the bar. Share a great steak. Don't forget the au gratin potatoes.

    The food isn't worth the price, and the servers are far too eager to clear the tables.
