Worth A Diversion
Good food at reasonable prices. Excellent service. Reasonably quiet, so easy to chat with friends.

Excellent in every way. Nice getaway from the metro. Very "Colorado" style if you're entertaining out of town guests.

Great Steak Place
My boyfriend and I eat here at least once a month. They've got some of the best steaks I've ever eaten. Highly recommended. The waitstaff is attentive.

First time to the Black Hat.
First time to visit the Black Hat, but had a very good experience. The service was excellent and hospitable. The atmosphere was fun and relaxed. I especially liked the the old west memoribilia. Each of our group ordered something different and compared the steaks. Of the ones we ordered, I would say that the sirloin is the best one. I will be returning!

Excellent steak house dinner
I was really impressed with the food at the Black Hat Cattle Co. Cooked to perfection, flavorful, generous portions...it was exactly what I was looking for in a steakhouse dinner and I look forward to returning!

Service was very friendly and very accommodating to our 18 month old. Food was great and came out quickly. Our server was knowledgable and helpful with our selections. We will definitely be back!

Just a great place!
The Black Hat Cattle Co is a restaurant that consistently cares for its diners. Great food; great service; great Rocky Mountain western ambiance. A combination that cannot fail.

Excellent Steak Restaurant
We have dined at The Black Hat Cattle Company several times over the past two years and we believe it to be one of the best steak restaurants in the Front Range area. The ambiance is western casual and unpretentious. It is also one of the cleanest restaurants we have seen. As with our previous visits, our server was very helpful, personable and efficient. We found the steaks and side dishes to be of higher quality than similar fare we have tried at some of the more expensive restaurants in the metro area. We would recommend The Black Hat Cattle Company to anyone who loves a good steak and a good value.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
We reserved a table for Mother's Day. The restaurant called us back with the reservation confirmation as well as E Mail notification. Since we never had dined at the restaurant we did not know the lay out. After arriving we've decided to dine outside in the early afternoon . The waitress was exceptional and helped with every need. The food was outstanding and the dining experience was Exceptional. The view of the mountains on this wonderful afternoon capped our dining experience nicely. If you are out and about to experience nice dining in a relaxed environment the black hat cattle company is an excellent place to go. When you are finished,visiting Evergreen after Dinner closes the day out nicely.

Belated Birthday & Career Change
We arrived 10 minutes late for our reservation and was not a problem since it was a Wednesday evening.
Choice of tables to be seated at. Our Waiter was kind, cordial and prompt.
The food was excellent and the portions of sides were quite gracious given the skimping you see no days.
Was at this place years ago when it was Tivoli Deer. The new style and menu seems to fit right in.
Will go again I am sure.

Fabulous For Special Occasion
New favorite place! Owner answers the phone and greets you at the door. Very personable, private, and unique resturaunt. Great artwork and decor. House Huckleberry salad dressing is the best dressing I've ever had!

We had a great birthday celebration
We had a great birthday celebration at Black Hat. We ate from the specials menu (appetizer and entree) as well as the standard menu (entree). Everything was excellent! The service was very attentive while allowing us to eat at a leasurely pace to enjoy the evening.

This must be one of the best chefs in the metro Denver area. We had an appetizer, salads, entrees, and desserts. All were superb, and each of us said "the best I've ever had."
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our first visit. Food and service was great. We will return. A great place for dinner before a concert at Red Rocks. Just 10 minutes to Red Rocks.
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a hidden gem just minutes from Evergreen. The staff is lovely and the food the best I've had in the area. This has replaced our previous restaurant for our weekly "date night". I'm looking forward to next week!

Fine Dining in Kittridge
My mom has been dying to try this place for over a year, so we went there for her birthday. The staff was amazing, helping me "surprise" Mom with homemade cake that I brought and they served for us. Our waitress was polite, friendly, knowledgeable, and had great timing.
The steaks were AMAZING. Tender, very flavorful, and well-seasoned. Unfortunately, the spinach dip was mediocre and the chips stale. The side dishes (variously mixed vegetables, mashed potatoes with chorizo gravy, and creamed corn) were all simply "meh." No stand out flavors or textures. If the sides had been the same caliber as the steak, it would have been outstanding. Go there for great steak, but don't expect too much from the rest of the menu.

Great place to eat & celebrate
Great place to eat & celebrate ! This is truly a neighborhood Gem. It is my wife & I's favorite place in the mountains. No where else can one find a better meal for the price. We know we have tried them all. We keep coming back to the Black Hat.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time to visit Black Hat Cattle Company in Kittredge, Colorado. It was extremely enjoyable and better than expected. The service, food and hospitality all outstanding. Thank you to Black Hat Cattle Company for a wonderful experience.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just had dinner at Black Hat Cattle with my daughter, and it was wonderful. Food was superb, service was great, and the music play list (classic country) was the best I have ever heard. Will definitely return when I visit Colorado again. Pippin.
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
They are pricey, but the food is great and the portions ample. I would rather see a restaurant raise prices when their costs go up than have them compromise the quality and/or quantity. Black Hat has been consistently excellent over the years, and last night was no different. I highly recommend them for special occasions.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was very very good, drinks were worth every penny and the service was very good as well! Our group will go back.

Great Dining Experience Again
Although it's been a number of years since we last visited the Black Hat Cattle Company, the restaurant did not disappoint us and brought back fond memories of our first visits a few years ago. As usual, we were greeted at the door by the owner and seated at a table with a great view of the restaurant's private garden and patio. The area where we were seated was quiet and we were able to speak using normal indoor volume. Our waiter was awesome as well, recommending items that suited our tastes; and as usual, the food was excellent.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
I took a chance on a new restaurant to celebrate an anniversary last week and chose the Black Hat Cattle Company. We hoped to eat outdoors but due to a rain and hail storm, ate inside. A couple right next to us seemed to need to talk as if lecturing a large group but the waitress happily resat us at a quiet corner table. Staff is friendly but not intrusive. Food was very good but somewhat overpriced. They do know how to cook beef properly, even if you desire rare! Veggies were cooked well, but a bit bland, rolls tasted homemade! They gave us a complimentary and unbelievably yummy dessert for our anniversary, which was a nice touch. The wine list was an unexpected plus, given the size and country location! I would return!

This has become one of our favorite restaurants. Every time we have visitors, we always take them to THE Black Hat Cattle Co.
The food is always good and the price is reasonable. The only complaint I have is their chel needs to learn how to make creamed corn. It is absolutely the worst cream corn I have ever seen. It is NOT creamy but very dry. It should be creamy and once he learns how to make it I am sure it will be a best seller.
I wish they would bring back the prime rib. It was so good and is no longer on the menu.
Altogether, we love this place and will continue eating there.

The ambience was excellent. My wife and I took my mother and she loved the atmosphere.

Back Hat is not Black Tie
BHCC is a higher end steak house with a Western theme. Two of us had the ribeye steak special, which were perfection. Another had the surf & turf-small filet and lobster tail-a clean plate. Our last member had the steak tips and ended up taking some home. We had a red Zinfandel wine that was an absolutely great wine for this dinner. Our service was exemplary-personal and attentive. Every detail down to the special bamboo toothpicks are seen to. Kittredge is in the foot hills. Be careful with your alcohol consumption...the drive back will be very curvy and dark! I can't overstate the importance of consistency for a restaurant. BHCC is consistent with food quality, preparation and service.

Our favorite steakhouse in the Denver metro area. Never disappointed!

The best Steakhouse is local!
My wife and I both grew up in Evergreen and we can appreciate how nice it is to not have to drive 'down the hill' for fantastic food. A burger at a local joint is always fine, but for a long and relaxing evening to remember (this time with visiting friends), BHCC service and taste is something we always look forward to. As usual, the steaks were amazing! Thanks, Dave -

We decided to celebrate our anniversary at Black Hat Cattle Co and are very glad we did. The restaurant atmosphere is great, fine for jeans or nicer. Out wait person was professional but friendly and knowledgeable. The food was a wonderful treat for a special occasion.

Great Food, Fun, and Atmosphere
Went with a friend for a birthday celebration. The dry aged bone-in ribeye was wonderful and cooked as ordered. Our waiter was very pleasant and helped us choose a nice wine. The service was very good even though the restaurant was very busy. The atmosphere was very western and had a very comfortable feel to it - the music was outstanding! Would recommend!
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Black Hat is a very nice restaurant. The food is really good for a mountain restaurant, but the steaks are not on par with Elway's, Capital Grille, Denver Chop House or Ocean Prime. The staff was great. I'd recommend Black Hat for anyone seeking a mountain dining experience.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice neighborhood place for meeting
Our first experience at Black Hat Cattle. Casual, warm atmosphere, had been recommended by neighbors in Evergreen/Conifer area. We found the service friendly, not high pressure, but attentive. Food was good, steaks done as requested, and appetizer and dessert were also tasty. Did not look at wine list, and was too late in the season for outdoor dining. Will go again and also take guests.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM

The Service And Food Was Outstanding Our Server Was Knowledgeable And Courteous. I Would Recommend This Restaraunt To anyone Who Enjoys Great Steaks And Wine And Wants Impeccable Service.

Special celebration.....Great Food!
We celebrated a retirement with friends and had a great dinner and lively discussion, with a lot of laughter, in the wine room. Our food was perfect and the service was impeccable! We love Black Hat Cattle Company for an impromptu dinner for two, or for a special celebration. The owner, and staff, always are gracious and accomodating.
