Amazing place with excellent views of the foothills. Service is impeccable and the food was delicious! This is a must see for anyone traveling through or living in, the Denver area. Definitely will be back again!

The Fort! Fun family experience – educational with a wonderfully extraordinary menu and a beautiful view as well! Our server was very informative about the menu and the history of the building and events as well! Highly recommend.

Along with a concert at Red Rocks, we looked for a restaurant to celebrate our Anniversary and The Fort perfectly fit the bill. The staff was friendly, courteous and efficient. The dinner was cooked to order and was splendid. I had the Buffalo Tenderloin Filet Mignon and my wife had the Herb Butter Buffalo Tenderloin Filet Mignon. Both were delicious. There is an outdoor patio with a view that was perfect for sitting after dinner as the sun set. Highly recommend The Fort for a special occasion.

Great Frontier Atmosphere and Superb Hospitality

We also had not been to The Fort for maybe 20 years…pace of life and it being on the opposite side of Denver from us. But my daughter and I share a birthday, and her friend from Mississippi wanted to treat us to dinner, and we wanted to show a truly Colorado experience. We were NOT disappointed. The atmosphere was top notch with views of Denver at night, real wood fireplaces lending sights and sounds, a wonderful native american flute player and more. The food was outstanding from salmon and walleye to a wonderul elk tenderloins with a huckleberry sauce, to a green chili mac and cheese. Everything prepared and presented perfectly. Our table was waited on by two attentive servers who refilled drinks and waters and provided us complimentary desserts for our birthdays (though all I could handle was a scoop of delicious vanilla ice cream…I was too full from the meal). We will be back sooner this time, it was well worth the drive

A Lovely Tradition

The Fort has become the place where my husband and I celebrate ALL the big things in our lives- Anniversaries, birthdays, pregnancies, promotions, etc. We are always blown away by the service we receive from the staff, and the care and consideration we are always shown. The food is delicious! I have yet to try something I was not impressed with. My husband is adventurous, but I seem to always end up with the Elk Chops (my favorite!). We will always continue to go to The Fort to celebrate whatever life throws at us!

WOW and WOW! Can I say WOW again? We ate before a Red Rocks concert and this made our entire evening perfect! Atmosphere is set as soon as you step foot into The Fort with a teepee, wood fire and outdoor seating area. The staff at the Fort provides a wonderful dining experience with warm smiles and quick perfect service. The menu options are the perfect paring to the vide that is set with décor. I had Buffalo Ribs and the Thomas Jefferson Mac and Cheese. My husband had the Elk Tenderloin. Meal was absolutely perfectly prepared and amazing.

My husband and I had a delicious meal here! We ordered the half size chips and guacamole as an appetizer, and it was the perfect amount. We both got the herb butter buffalo filet mignon, and it was the best steak both of us have ever had. It cut like butter. For dessert we got the chocolate mud pie, per the waiter’s recommendation, and it was worth every bite. Was a great way to end our weekend visit Colorado.

Quite amazing venue… regardless of all the celebrities who have dined here! First of all, the view is incredible. Adult beverages were abundant and varied. Appetizers enjoyed included bacon wrapped quail and guacamole. Entrees included fresh garden salads, a variety of dressing choices, delicious freshly baked breads and walnut pumpkin muffins. My entree of the “October” special buffalo flank steak was charred to perfection! My sides were delicious garlic mashed potatoes and specialty mushrooms. Other diners found the buffalo prime rib, buffalo rib eye and buffalo tenderloin medallions ever so tasty. We followed our meal by sharing two decadent desserts; namely, the chocolate mousse and the mud pie! We so enjoyed our time spent at this unique venue.
