We came because of the history, we left very satisfied because of the food, the service and the atmosphere. This is a true living history lesson and should not be missed. It holds a very special place and should be enjoyed.

We've been here before, but many years ago. Glad to see that the top quality food & service have not changed. If you have never been here, it's hard to explain the décor! Just a wonderful place.

My husband and I were on our way from Kearney, NE to the Grand Canyon. Denver was our first stop. We had eaten at the Buckhorn 20 years ago and loved the food and atmosphere. It still looks the same and food is still great....More

Immediately seated and assured they do not have MSG in their food - that's good. Beer, wine and drinks went well. We had good service. One would hope that since the late 1800s they could get a baked potato correct - not done on the...More

The Buckhorn Exchange is more than just a great restaurant, it is a piece of Colorado history. Our experience was top notch all the way around. I love that it is a top rated steak house, but jeans and t-shirts are ok for dress code....More
