Went to dinner at the Great Northern. This is a bit of a locals place located in the Denver Tech Center. It's much more low key than the big steak houses and offers a solid upscale menu. We go here often because if simply consistently good and usually doesn't have the noise and chaos of other restaurants in the area.... More

Have gone here many times and this was the worst service we have received. The food was good as always but service was slow to the point of almost being non-existent. They are never busy at night but the staff seems to hang around and not be attentive.

Had dinner here last night and have dined here many times in the past. The service in the bar was pitiful ... took over 20 minutes to get a drink. Then we were seated in the restaurant and after almost 30 minutes we had to ask someone to wait on us. We asked for bread (which used to be fresh... More

This is a great choice for comfort food. I have ordered the salmon and meatloaf and they are both very good. It's a warm and comfortable restraint that offers enough space between the tables to talk privately.

Six of us celebrated a family member's birthday at the Great Northern Tavern and it was truly one of the most enjoyable birthday celebration experiences ever! I had made a reservation earlier in the day and we were greeted immediately upon arrival and offered indoor or outdoor seating. We sat indoors but adjacent to the patio so our table was... More

we usually go there when in town and usually enjoy the food my husband liked their prime rib but it seems the prices have gone up and the quality has gone down and the menu has changed and there seems to be fewer items to choose from they stop their usual bread and replaced it with something not as good

Work in the area when I travel to Denver and this was my second trip here, this time with some local coworkers. Excellent drinks, appetizers and food. Got the goat cheese stuff meatloaf and I must say it was excellent. Would definitely go again.

Chicken was tough and dry. Nice patio and good service. Popular place but expensive for lunch. Plenty of parking available.

First time eating at this restaurant, and we were pleasantly pleased with the variety offered on the menu, the quality of the food and the service. I ordered the Buffalo Chicken Salad, a mix of chopped chicken tenders, steeped in a tangy, hot buffalo sauce mixed with lettuce, celery, blue cheese crumbles and tomatoes which was very tasty. My wife... More

The food here is very good. It has a nice patio for eating outside on a nice evening. The staff are attentive and helpful in making dinner selections. All in all a good choice for dinner while in the area.
