Great place to unwind after a day/night in downtown Denver or just a good place to stop for a quick drink before heading out. Good choice of craft beers and signature drinks. Bartenders are personable.

A bit expensive but excellent! In a beautiful historic building too. Great service and superb food. I will return the next time I'm in Denver.

I had to see The Brown Palace in Denver, Colorado. So worth the trip it was. Exquisite architecture and history abounds in photos. While there saw The Ship Tavern and we decided to have lunch. All were pleased with their entrees from club sandwiches, steak...More

I had just arrived in Denver and checking into the Brown Palace. I was too tired to seek out food outside the hotel so tried the Ship Tavern which is just off the lobby. The beer was fine, but the seafood chowder was terrible...

Great experience start to finish. The atmosphere and venue was lively but traditionally comfortable; food (especially prime rib) was great, though the portion size defeated my boys. Dan was a perfect host and a credit to the place.

Enjoyed a fine lunch served by friendly Frank. The prime rib had minimal fat trim and was perfectly cooked. The accompanying seasonal vegetables and mashed potatoes were excellent, seasoned just right, not too salty.
