We stopped in here for lunch with family and had a good time. I got the Santa Fe Classic Burger (burger with guac, roasted poblano, bacon, and cheddar, and a side of green chili-cheese fries). The burger was massive and tasty, and the green chili was flavorful and hot. The beer came in frosty glasses and went down well with... More

This place always seems busy. Not sure why, as the food is very average, and the service can be spotty, at best. Casual biker vibe, and nice patio, but don't expect a lot.

My husband and I have been to the Platte a number of times and absolutely love when we can sit out on the deck. We used to go to watch the live music but it gets way too crowded and there are few seats that you can actually see the band from. The food is average but the drinks are... More

I met friends here on a late summer afternoon 2016. We sat outside on the deck which was very busy and loud. Beautiful weather that day, and there were a lot of potted flowers against a backdrop of tall lush trees. That said, the deck is the only positive aspect of this place. When I went inside to use the... More

I have been going to South Platte River Bar and Grill for many years. The food was always ok and the staff somewhat friendly. But I was surely very disappointed on my last visit. I have ordered the Chicken Fajitas. When my food came, the chicken was burned on to the sizzling hot pan they are served in. The burned... More

So ~ being a past server, I understand how demanding the job is but the events that led up to us being chased out the door yesterday were off the charts. We're on a poker run for the Wounded Warriors with our group of ten other riders. The Platte was one of the stops. We chose to take a break... More

Well I don’t normally post negative comments or rants, and let me say I understand mistakes and accidents can happen, but what one does rectify them says everything. Here’s what happened………. Today was the Harry Roamers Turkey Motorcycle Run, everything was going along nicely enjoying a great day with great friends, until we got to the 3rd stop at the... More

The Platte River Bar has access right off the South Platte River bike path and even has bike racks, which makes it a nice place to ride to &/or stop by on a ride. There is a huge deck with music, which is a great place to relax and hang out with friends if the weather is good. The menu... More

We offer plenty of outside seating (and heated inside seating during the winter months) making us a perfect place for those who enjoy the sunshine as much as good company. We are a family owned and operated so its not that same old corporate stuffy feeling. No matter what the occasion, we can accomodate any size party or occasion with over 300 outdoor seats as well as 170 indoor seats to suit your need (a great place for a birthday or business get together)! With a wide variety of food specialties and drink concoctions, you will always find something unique and different!
