A word from Black Hat Cattle Co.
The Black Hat Cattle Co. is the place to go if you're in the mood for a dining experience that goes beyond its great food. Our western decor beckons you with music, laughter, conversation & warm hospitality - hang your hat and stay awhile! If you love 100% natural premium cuts of beef, this steakhouse is the place for you. Our steaks are aged a minimum of 21 days & hand cut daily to maximize flavor & tenderness. We season our steaks with only salt & pepper and grill them at a searing 1800 degrees so you can taste the difference in our all natural beef. If you don't like beef, this is the place for you too. We offer a diverse menu including St Louis Style Ribs; chicken dishes and a variety of tempting fresh fish & seafood entrees. We go beyond the obvious quality of food & drink - we embrace the welcoming spirit of the West.

    Our waiter Doug was very attentive and knowledgeable. Our steaks were cooked as ordered, ambiance is country decor with great country music playing in the background. If you are looking for great food, nice people, and pleasant atmosphere, I highly recommend.

    This was our second visit to the Black Hat and we thought we'd try to visit during a week night. It was very quiet as compared to our first visit and I think we were the only people dining at a table, while the rest of the patrons sat at the bar. It was very quiet as a result but it didn't change anything about our excellent service or great tasting food. I would recommend a quick weeknight trip to beat the weekend crowds and enjoy a quiet meal in the mountains.

    Dined on 6/15/2014
    This is a men's restaurant, not a gourmet place. The steaks are great, cooked perfectly to order, but there's not much innovation here. Our service was poor; we waited forever for dinner. The creamed spinach was lukewarm, and so was the decaf coffee. My husband's elk medallions were slightly tough.

A gem in the mountains that should be experienced by all who desire an exceptional meal!

    A friend and I dined at Black Hat and had their Early Dining Special - it was a wonderful surprise and a great value $29.95 for a three course meal. I had the New York steak and my friend had the Flatiron steak - we also enjoyed salad and a great dessert, the huckleberry bread pudding - it was delicious! Our waiter was wonderful and the ambiance is very western and comfortable. I would recommend as it was a very pleasant experience with great steaks!!

    Thought this would be a nice romantic night out with the wife and it was much more. The service was quite exceptional and was pleasantly surprised with the early dine option which was priced in a quite affordable range for starter, entrée with two sides and desert. The dersert by the way was heavenly, a wild huckleberry bread pudding. Yum yum!

    Looking at the website and the very high prices, I thought this would be really special. I was disappointed. The salads and filet medallions were just average. The elk was really not ok....no flavor. This was an anniversary celebration and next time it will be The Bistro in Evergreen. Looking for more ambiance and more flavor for the price.

    The four of us were celebrating a birthday and life in general. We wanted something different than the normal high-end steak house. We very much like the Black Hat. John did a great job in assisting through the menu that had a great variety of steaks. A number of us had the rib-eye. I am ready to go back! Thanks

    Dined on 5/4/2014
    On a whim we decided to take the short drive to the Black Hat Cattle Company instead of doing our usual Sunday steak night at Simms Landing. The service was spot on in every way,the wine list excellent. The steaks were far better than at Simms and on par with Elways. The prices are comparable to any GOOD steak house and the service we received matches the other reviews.Far better than I expected. The Black Hat Cattle company is a very good alternative to the other big name steak houses in and around Denver.

    We have been looking for a great steak house that wasn't over run with too many menu choices, like many chain places. When you want steak, you want a place that does steak perfectly. We also usually dine with our children and have friends with kids as well, so it has to be kid friendly. We found it! The steak was perfect, the sides left me craving for more, even though I couldn't have eaten another bite. The kids loved everything they had, including our teenage boy who generally eats the plate the food is served on. Great wines and very friendly staff. This is definitely a place we will be visiting again.

However every time we go here the dining experience is wonderful and the food is great. We also really like the ambience of the place. Nicely decorated and the noise tone is low for good conversation.

    I have driven past this building for YEARS, never knowing that such an amazing restaurant was there. I used Open Table to search for steakhouses and Black Hat popped up. I took a chance and made reservations for our dinner out, knowing this would turn out being either a bad idea, or the best ever! It was the best. The location is on Hwy 74 in Kittridge, and the interior décor is Western/Colorado mountain. We were greeted by a friendly host and had a very friendly waitress. Our main purpose was to celebrate our anniversary with hopefully a great tasting steak. If you are a steak lover, this is the place!!! Best tasting, most tender and locally raised meat!!! Loved it. Apple pie for dessert was also amazing. We will be back!!!

    The food was just not as good as it has been in the past. We had dined at the Black Hat Cattle Co. two previous times and really thought it was a very good restaurant. This time the steaks were just not as flavorful as in the past and we felt that their prices were a little high for the quality of food. The service was very good however.
