Enjoy indoor dining with the option of outdoors offered with propane foot heaters at 740 Front in Historic Downtown Louisville. Designated historical, 740 is one of Colorado's two oldest remaining saloons; transformed back to its 1904 roots; a traditional American dining saloon with a turn of the century ambiance featuring a magnificent room dominating bar, built in 1880 by the Brunswick Company,. The copper spit trough, once equipped with running water, still exists at the front of the bar. Louisville, notorious for its drinking, gambling, and illegal activities, evidence of the occasional misunderstanding is the .22 caliber bullet hole in the front bar.
The bar offers a selection of craft beers, wines,  handcrafted cocktails and an extensive craft bourbon selection.
Dinner Tue. thru Sat. From casual to fine dining.

    This is a great neighborhood restaurant. The service is excellent. The food is very good. 99% of the time it is excellent. The last time I went there in September of 2022, some of the things, such as the salmon, weren't as good as they have been in the past.

    Our table for six on the patio was perfect for celebrating my husband's 92nd birthday. It was quiet enough that he could hear the conversation. Everyone from nonagenarian to teenage grandchildren enjoyed the ambiance and the food. The oysters, grilled artichokes, deviled eggs, prime rib steak, and seafood cannelloni were big hits, the smoked salmon fettuccini and lollypop lamb chops nice but not loved. All desserts were a hit as was the wine and 12 year old McCallum's Scotch. Our waitress was practically a family member by the end of our meal.

    740 FrontResponded on September 2, 2022We are so happy to hear that you all had a lovely experience celebrating your husbands bday! Thank you for your kind words and for choosing us for such a special celebration!

    740 FrontResponded on September 2, 2022Kelly - Thank you for your feedback I sincerely apologize for your disappointment in the service. It is a challenge that we are keenly aware of particularly on a busy Saturday night. As we state on our menu "We ask for your patience and understanding with timely execution and service during peak and busy times as a result of these current staffing challenges." We very much hope we will get back to more normal times. We greatly appreciate your patronage and hope to see you again at 740 Front.

    Grilled artichoke and oysters were great. Service was as well. Thomas was very professional. The steaks were grilled properly to the correct doneness. I had the ribeye which was tasty, but a bit tough. Rest of the party had the "prime" strip which was much more tender than the ribeye. Side of asparagus was 6 spears. Side of fries feeds 2 easily. Make a reservation if going on a Friday night.

    The food was great. The Prime Steak was unfortunately tough!!! Service was great as always.

    740 FrontResponded on September 3, 2022Ephrime - Thank you for your feedback. Please in the future let us know right away when you are dissatisfied with something, we will be more than happy to replace the steak or refund your money. Unfortunately, all cuts of beef regardless of grade or cut can occasionally be tough as a result of the cow being over active or overly stressed at slaughter. I do not believe in taking patrons $ if they are not totally satisficed. We hope to see you again at 740 Front. Please ask for me. Fred

    Visited for first time, we are from Midwest so we appreciate older establishments with history. The Waiter and Restaurant was excellent, had patio table converted to inside table due to rain. Made us feel welcome and they were very helpful with menu choices. Much appreciated our experience for my wife and our upcoming anniversary. They gave us a anniversary dessert, like touch. Would come back again, well done.

    The experience at the restaurant was good except for the high noise level. However my wife experienced ab acute stomach upset the following day. Cant be sure this was connected to the restaurant food but it seems likely.

    740 FrontResponded on August 17, 2022I am very sorry to hear about your wife's suffering. In the future please contact the restaurant imediately and directly to allow us to review what your wife had eaten. This is particularly important, so that we can check the product to see if it was a result of something wrong at 740 Front and to allow us to correct and prevent any additional incidents. This is impossible to do with the information you have provided. Please contact me directly if you would. I hope your wife is feeling better

    740 Front is, simply, just a comfortable place to visit, relax and have a fine meal. It offers a delightful atmosphere, friendly owners and staff and very good comfort food - all at a reasonable price. My wife and I have been there three times and have recommended it to friends. On this visit we both had the short ribs, which were delicious and well presented with perfectly cooked mixed vegetables and an excellent sauce. We had a couple mixed drinks and wine to wash it down. This time we ate on the patio, which is screened from the street and comfortable. Bottom line: 740 Front is worth the drive over from Boulder.

    Servers were short staffed. Our waiter ended up trying to do double-duty behind the bar (not his fault), and there were multiple intoxicated patrons causing scenes. He did the best he could to de-escalate the situation(s), which caused us to wait over an hour for our food and drinks. We were patient and forgiving, and the food was delivered hot and at temperature, totally delicious.

    Excellent experience at 740 Front! We started with cocktails at the beautiful, historic bar. Cynthia and Talon mixed a creative and generous libation and checked in on us regularly. The menu had many appealing options. We chose a pasta dish and a pork entree along with salads and wine. The food and service were excellent, attentive without crowding. Everyone we encountered from the hostess to the service staff was professional and friendly. Each acknowledged the birthday we were celebrating. Overall an excellent meal, we will be happy to return.

    We wanted to try something new and so grateful we did. I loved the feeling of the place - mom and pop owned, saloon attire with updated seating. It was a very busy night with a few large parties so it was loud but the food well made up for it. I wish the price of the food continued on to the dress code. I saw cargo shorts and flip flop to sweats and sneakers.
