Easter brunch here has become
Easter brunch here has become a family tradition. The kids are happy they can find something they like to eat and the adults love the variety of delicious choices to be found. The service is always top notch and combined with the food and atmosphere, keeps us coming back every year.

We are never disappointed with Great Northern. Omar was our server and did a great job--he even kept us updated on the NCAA basketball score. I had the salmon which was cooked perfectly. The mashed potatoes were the best I have ever had--a little lumpy with skins. I love that the tables aren't packed together which makes it less noisy and easier to talk in a larger group.

They were not flexible on
They were not flexible on seating. we requested a booth; but were told that the inky booth opes was reserved... however; no one sat in it the entire time we were there. The food and service were way better than expected. But Don't order dessert. It looked and tasted like it came from the grocery store frozen section. It was too loud to talk, so don't choose this place if you want a quiet, romantic date.

I can always count on Great Northern to provide me with a consistent experience. The food is always great here.

Service was attentive, responsive
Service was attentive, responsive and friendly. Food was good. Noise was a bit too much to make conversation as pleasant as it could have been. It was crowded and a Friday night.

Great Northern is one of those
Great Northern is one of those good places you can count on – whether for a quick lunch, a biz/working lunch, after-work cocktails & food, or a relaxing munch with friends, it's good food. Thankfully not outre, hipster, pretentious, just good, creative, fresh, tasty food.
If you have adietary restriction they make ever effort to accommodate you and get you what you'd like - no drama, just "we can do that". They are NOT an overly-commercialized presence, and in a sea of chain/franchise sameness pretending to be a "family restaurants" hey stand out - something reliable and yummy.

Have been here a few times now. It is never a disappointment.
5/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
The menu has had some revisions but this is a great spot for everything from burgers to steaks and they turn out some awesome slow cooked ribs. So good! Excellent happy hour and usually some nice chef specials. A solid performer.

Perfect for a business lunch
Great Northern Tavern is a favorite among people at my company. They have a great menu, excellent food, great value and cater to the business person who has limited time for meetings and lunches.

Enjoyed the food and great service!
We joined friends there for lunch on Memorial Day. It was very nice and we all had delicious entrees.

So you want a salad?
My salad, chicken cobb, was excellent. My guest, however, ordered the Ahi tuna salad. I took one look at it and wish I ordered it as I love Ahi tuna and it looked tremendous. Next time.

Nice lunch spot
Not bad place for lunch. The prices are a bit much though. But occasionally the food is worth it. I love the torilla soup. Service is always great and efficient and I appriciate that too.

Appetizers the highlight!
Enjoyed Sunday evening outdoor dining. Appetizers (calamari, potstickers' and mussels) and desserts the highlight. The strip steaks and prime rib was slightly tough.

We loved the outside table
We loved the outside table for 6--quiet, pretty--easy to converse with each other. The service was timely and the food was delicious. We will return!
6/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our party of 6 were celebrating a retirement. Our waiter was attentive and offered a complimentary dessert for our friend who is retiring. The burgers and home made chips were the best I have had in a long time. From burgers to salads, everyone was very happy. Try the warm brownie with ice cream... Definitely worth the calories.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just love the food and vibe!
I always have a great meal here. Food is always absolutely fantastic.
Service is always top knotch!

I've dined here several times
I've dined here several times before and as always the service and food was exceptional. Only thing that bothered me was that our server never mentioned that we were on happy hour when we ordered our drinks and charged us full price for them. Didn't realize it til we got home and I looked at the receipt.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
If you try nothing else, the calamari is awesome and the goat cheese stuffed meatloaf is hearty! Their happy hour is great with inexpensive mojitos and a great selection of beers. We have eaten here in the past and the food is always good!
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was able to get together with friends. We had great food, different wine drinks, cozy enough environment, and good conversation time. The plates of food were very filling. So much so that we didn't have room for dessert, although I would have enjoyed that too!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
The large patio outside in
The large patio outside in the shade is a WONDERFUL place to have dinner. It is quiet and peaceful and very enjoyable in terms of actually having a conversation! On top of that the service is good and the food is tasty. And the Happy Hour prices until 7 pm is a great bonus.

Best BLT in Town!
The bacon, lettuce, tomato & avacado (BLTA) sandwich is the best in town, hands down! Lots of thick, crispy bacon - you can;t go wrong.

A great place to go when you want a casual night out.
The food was great and the outdoor entertainment was perfect for the setting.

Great Northern Virgin
New to Denver. Brought my team here for lunch birthday celebration. Excellent choice. First time to use this online reservation. Overall each person ordered a different food selection. Everyone's lunch was outstanding. Beautiful presentation. Outside dining was divine. Highly recommend this venue. We've added this to our regular return list of favs.

Sat night @ 6.
Comfortable and quiet for pleasant conversation. Doubt we saw 4-5 children there and they were well-behaved. Thank you Mom & Dad. Our waiter was very nice (RCJH) and, thankfully, not one of those overly attentive, hovering types. Same with the young man and his water. We don't need 'em filled after every sip. I have a habit of showing a waiter or waitress that, when I'm having a GUR (Grown-Up Refreshment), the level on the glass when they should ask if I'm interested in another. RCJH was right on it. Rotisserie chicken was moist and flavorful-and I really liked the Pastrami burger with a fried egg. Next time, though, I'll pass on the tavern chips and opt for fries. Tavern chips were just kettle-fried potato chips. My fault. We'll be back.

Enjoyed the Woodfired menu
Great on tap selection and enjoyed the Woodfired Entrees selection. Only complaint, and its minor, is leaving the restaurant smelling like you spent the evening around a campfire.

Another nice meal at Great Northern
I've had lunch and dinner at this restaurant many times over the years, and find it to be consistently good. This time, it was dinner with a group of girlfriends on a weeknight, and one of the main reasons we choose them is because they never rush you through the meal, no matter how busy they are. The service is friendly, and the atmosphere is very comfortable, but not stuffy. Our group had the ribs, a burger, a filet and crabcakes, and all were delicious.

We have been to Great Northern
We have been to Great Northern many times and it has never been less than very, very good. The service is always wonderful and we love the comfortable seating.

Happy Hour Enjoyment
Wonderful happy hour, enjoyed out on the patio soaking in the flowers, umbrella tables and tree shade. Very pleasant in afternoon for conversation and just "unwinding". Happy hour menu had appetizers that were packed with choices and flavorful! Only wish they were at a "happy hour" discounted price. Most were the regular menu price of $8+. Wine was only $2 off of original pricing. Margaritas were offered for $4, but alcohol was unnoticeable. Service was attentive and friendly. Overall, enjoyed the afternoon, even with the high prices for food.

Good Food -
This was my first time at this restaurant and I was very happy with the food and service. Pretty simple, we will go there again.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice patio for lunch-even though it is in the middle of a parking lot, its trees create a very nice atmosphere. Good food, especially the lunch salads.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a great place
We have dined here when we travel to the Denver area over the last few years. Every visit we experience good service, great food and a nice glass of wine. I strongly recommend it.

Enjoyed dinner on the patio
Enjoyed dinner on the patio watching great music. Lovely.
9/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
The lunch meatloaf was OK overall. Attractive. OK quantity. Green beans a little too raw (my taste). Standard fare on meatloaf taste, nothing exceptional. Burger was outstanding. $25 each (with ice tea) a little high for standard fare lunch. I would certainly go there again but would skip the meatloaf.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We live in the area but it took a client to suggest we meet at Great Northern. The service was attentive, helpful, and accommodating. The food was very good. Between the three of us we had the chicken sandwich special, the pulled chicken sandwich off the menu, the tortilla soup, and the Mediterranean salad. Portions were generous and the food was delicious. I try to eat healthy which was the reason we'd not tried Great Northern before as their menu does not have that orientation. But the server and the kitchen did a great job with all my "without this, please put that on the side" requests and I was thoroughly pleased. We'll be back and you should try Great Northern too.

to comfortable business lunch. Server DID NOT say "is everything amazingly awesome" (ugh!) 10 times & interrupt us as we solved the, global warming, debt crisis and govt. shutdown ;) Whats his name (server) was great! So was food!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great business lunch spot
our server was friendly and provided great service. My ahi tuna salad was delicious and fresh.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Warm but loud
A very nice restaurant with warm lodge-style ambiance, but it was very loud and a touch difficult for our table of three to communicate. Great for grabbing grub and suds with your crew or your coworkers, but not optimal for a delicate rendezvous.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for lunch
I had the salmon, which came with two generous side dishes. The salmon was cooked perfectly (I ordered it medium) and the sweet potato fries were great. This is a great place for lunch in the Tech Center.

TALK It UP
I love Great Northern. First and foremost, the food is fabulous, and the kitchen even worked with my friend to better accommodate her gluten-free needs. Secondly, and maybe even more importantly, I LOVE that one can TALK at Great Northern and be heard without shouting across the table. It is generally crowded during a dinner-hour when I'm there, but tables are spaced well, and I never have difficulty carrying on a conversation with my dinner companions. I highly recommend sitting in the "back dining-room" behind the bar. Very nice. Very comfortable. And a table full of people can TALK! Wonderful!

One Of The Best Wedge's In Denver!
Hadn't stopped by here in a good while, which after this trip is clearly my loss. The food was as reliable as ever, with the wedge sald cranking it up another couple of levels. A reason to vistit in and of itself, but plan on splitting this one. Ditto with the steaks, which are a pretty good size as well. But it was the service that really made everything work so well. Bravo!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Northern never disappoints
Some restaurants, with time, lose their appeal. Whether its bad service or decline in food quality, but this is not the case with Great Northern.... still a fantastic place after all these years. Happy hour is a definite do not want to miss and steaks are tasty! Cheers!

Overall great dining experience
Met some friends for dinner - the service was great starting from hostess to servers. Overall feel of the place was warm, a very nice neighborhood feel. Our server was very aware of our pace and did not rush us, which was very appreciated, even though the place was busy. We had the cheese curds and spinach artichoke dip appetizers. Fried cheese curds were fantastic, the aioli that went with it had a touch of spice that complimented the richness of the cheese nicely. However, the spinach artichoke dip was watery and did not taste very spinachy-or-artichokey. Salmon was nicely done, so was the prime rib. Both delicious. Sides were very good as well. I would go back there again.

SECOND TIME'S A CHARM!
We were invited back by the Manager after a not-so-great experience the first time. This time everything was perfect. The food and service were perfect. Try the smoked salmon app...it's delish!

Great Northern Lights it Up
Our family and friends had a wonderful experience dining a the Great Northern. Our party size change request was met with a gracious "of course we can do that" which set the tone for a very nice evening. The ribeye, chicken and salmon were all delightful although one of the steaks was overcooked. I would definitely recommend the baked brie for a nice winter appetizer - delicious. Wine list was a bit short but they do have some very good wines at reasonable prices. To top it all off, the blueberry cobbler dessert is absolutely divine. The Manager, Scott, even took to the time to talk to us and show us the historical memorabilia which makes this place even that much more special. Highly recommend.

Great family experience
We have been to Great Northern Tavern many times and keep coming back. This particular occasion was for local and out-of-town family to get together for lunch. The setting was enjoyable, service was great, and food was excellent. We took our time and didn't feel rushed. There were 8 of us, including a toddler, and we all felt comfortable and enjoyed it. We'll be back again.
