Diner Reviews
  • "We were very disappointed with our experience at Shanahan's. We had a 7:15 reservation and we were not seated until 8:00. They did buy us a drink but there should be better management and understanding of table turnover. When we were seated it was in the furthest back corner of the restaurant under a blowing air conditioning vent. We have been to Shanahan's many times but I think this was the first time we booked our table through Open Table. Maybe they treat Open Table people differently. A couple who came in after us with a reservation at the same time were seated before us in the main room. Open Table might want to follow up on this. Not a good experience"

  • "I've been to Shanahan's 8 or 9 times and it never gets old. The food, service, mood, noise, energy and vibe are always consistently awesome! They never have a down night."

  • "It was more like going to Texas road house than a fine restaurant Very loud. Food was just ok. Service was more outgoing and humorous than at a fine restaurant. Very expensive for the experience. J.alexanders would have been a better choice and better quality. For Fine dining I should have gone to del frescos in this area or the best is the briarwood in golden, where I frequent even though this is closer to my office and home. I really would have liked it to be great, one of my properties is walking distance and I bet it would have helped rental values."

  • "The complaints we had was that when we first arrived we were ignored by the two people in the front while they finished their conversation. When we took our seat our waitress was very quiet and hard to hear possibly because the music was a little loud. Our meal was good but did have a little more salt then we preferred. Everyone was kind and thoughtful since it was our anniversary."

  • "The service is impeccable and the ambiance is romantic. While they can serve a delicious cocktail the food is of the simple steakhouse variety. The appetizer had more flavor than my main dish but all were still very tasty."

  • "You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The steak doesn't need a knife to cut it and the creamed spinach is a must order."

  • "Went to Shanahan's to celebrate a birthday. We were waited on immediately with water glasses filled and fresh bread brought to the table. The three of us all had steaks. Most tasteful and tender steaks cooked to each of our preference. Lisa provided us with outstanding service and great conversation. Everything was wonderful and wouldn't hesitate a second on returning."

  • "The food is great - steaks done to perfection with wonderful sides. The wine list and the service live up to the food. Some people complain about the prices but they are very much in line with a top of the line steak house. One of the best steak dinners I have ever had!"

  • "My family and I really enjoyed our dinning experience, I love high end steakhouses, great wine selections and excellent service. Our waiter's name was Ryan he made us feel so comfortable yet presented his services with elegance I plan to return in the future."

  • "I lost a bet over the last Broncos Seahawks Superbowl... my brother works for Paul Allen which didn't help. I couldn't let well enough alone so I injected a little irony by selecting Shanahan's at the payback restaurant. Initially this and recommendations from friends was the selection criteria. What I wasn't prepared for was the best dinning experience ever! From the greeting hostess to the Superbowl Lombardi hardware viewing as we left, a truly awesome dinning experience. All four of us left with the opinion that this was the best steak dinner we have ever had. My brother will definitely cross Bronco's territory again for a meal like this."

  • "It was our first time and and a surprise for my husbands 40th bday. Our server was wonderful, and my husband said his steak was amazing. I ordered the 20oz ribeye and I didn't want to complain at all but mine was supposed to be pink in the center and it was charred on the outside and very well done. I knew they would have to throw it away and start over and I didn't want to waste it. So that is the only reason for 4 stars. But I was a little disappointed for a $55 steak to come burnt black, especially since a restaurant of this caliber is a rare occasion for us. But the service was excellent. And we had a wonderful time."

  • "Shanahan's is the most disappointing restaurant experience that I have had in years. The coconut shrimp was dry and rubbery. The steak was cooked to perfection but was intensely over seasoned and yet fundamentally lacking in flavor. Dessert was a double chocolate brownie with marshmallow ice cream, except the brownie was dry cake and the only thing that made the ice cream marshmallow were the few pieces of mini marshmallows in the vanilla ice cream. Overall, horrible food with excellent service."

  • "Went to Shanahan's for our anniversary. The table had rose petals scattered across it, and many people shared their congratulations with us throughout the meal. The food quality was what I would expect from a high quality steakhouse. The notable part of the meal was our service. Our server, Abbey, was amazing! She was responsive without hovering, and truly interested in our enjoyment. Thank you for a lovely evening."

  • "I brought my three kids here to celebrate my birthday. The service was fantastic, and the kids managed just fine. The food was excellent, although my steak had more red than I would have preferred being cooked to medium. Overall, fantastic experience!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "The steaks were done to perfection as was each part of the meal - starting with delicious bread, escargot, and best calamari I have ever eaten. The sides were excellent and each would serve 2 people easily. Great waiter - ready with advice when needed, very efficient and friendly enough to be a pleasant experience without being intrusive - earned his 25% tip! We'll be back!"

  • "Steaks were very flavorful and cooked just right. Service was very good. All in all, a place we will return to,"

  • "The food was outstanding although quite pricey. We were able to take advantage of the fixed menu that slightly lowered the price for this special night of dining on the patio with live music. The multitude of staff worked diligently and quietly to make sure the outdoor dining environment was comfortable for the guests by shifting umbrellas and outdoor heaters to accommodate the changing weather conditions. Overall our dining event was outstanding. I would highly recommend Shanahan's to others!"

  • "Shanahan's is always superb. The valets, the hostess staff, the wait staff...the STEAKS. If we had one minor complaint it would be that their Brussel Sprouts need a bit of work... not on par with the rest of their sides. But that is looking for something to complain about. Bring your wallet...."

  • "We always enjoy eating at Shanahans, but they always keep up waiting after we arrive. The average wait time has been 30 minutes. It's frustrating to make a reservation and be on time to the restaurant, only to wait a half an hour before being seated. But, if you have to wait, the people watching will keep you entertained!"

  • "This was our first time to Shanahan's. My daughter won her basketball championship so we ask where she wanted to celebrate and this is where she picked. It worked out great as we celebrating her 12th birthday as well as Father's Day. She was so happy when the waiter asked if she wanted to hold the Lombardi trophy. That just truly made her night. She also received an "anonymous" $50 gift card. So needless to say it was an amazing experience!! Thank you so much. We will definitely come back!!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "This was our first time at Shanahan's and we went because we had a gift card which was good because it was very pricey! The food was amazing! If you go, you have to get the Lobster Bisque (I'm going to go back for this at lunch sometime in the near future) and the Lobster Mac and Cheese! The steaks came out on a sizzling hot plate which kept all the food hot for the entire meal. I wish I could remember our waiter's name because he was wonderful!"

  • "We've been here several times for dinner in the past few years. The service was phenomenal. Everyone in the staff was very courteous and attentive. In the past, the steaks have been the best tasting steaks I've ever had in my life. This time, the steak was good. About the same quality as Outback Steakhouse. So definitely good, but for the price, I expected the same taste as I've had in the past."
