I travel constantly for work and eat out almost daily. The lamb was the best I’ve ever had in all of my travels
Saw the Buckhorn Exchange on an episode of Man versus Food and vowed to visit if I ever got to Denver. What a fantastic fascinating place: Great delicious food, wonderful history and fantastic staff..
If you are in Denver, visit this restaurant and definitely place it on your bucket list!!!
Excellent meal for customer dinner, all entrees were a hit.
There is no shortage of stuff to look at on the walls. Lots of neat history in there, including the history connection with Buffalo Bill. Lots of interesting choices on the menu very tasty
good but not what i remembered. Meats was dry and not that tasty.
The atmosphere at the Buckhorn Exchange is like no other in Denver. It's worth visiting just for the atmosphere. Make sure you visit upstairs.
The menus are in the form of a newspaper which is neat. The menu has items that are not easy to find other places (such as quail). After Elways and Del Fresco, it is the best steak in town.
I was not a fan of the heads on the wall, but I did like the black and white photos of famous visitors.
The service and atmosphere make this place a must-visit, but the food disappointed. The quail I ordered cost nearly $30 and tasted gamey and awful. The bread, salad, and desserts were good but not worth the ticket that we paid for our time there.
We love the Buckhorn for its real Colorado food and Historic charm. The staff here is always friendly, prompt, and knowledgeable. This is a great place to celebrate Birthdays and other special occasions (as long as you're not vegan). 😁
Awesome food. We come to buckhorn exchange every time we visit Denver.
We had an awesome meal. Sarah our waitress was so helpful and very professional. Everyone tried different meals and we all loved what we had. Prices were very fair and we would go back again.
Love this Denver gem! Been coming here for many many years and it never disappoints. Creative menu and interesting, eclectic game cuisine with delicious preparations. Great for all ages. Fun atmosphere with taxidermy fills you with the sense of the olden days on the front range and the wild wild west. Thanks for sticking around all these years. I hope you never leave!
This is a fun and very unique place. A must stop for Denver visitors.
Buffalo Prime Rib was great and our service was exceptional!
The Buckhorn Exchanged can be summed up easily, TOURIST TRAP. Way overpriced tourist trap.
I hadn't been to the Buckhorn Exchange for at least 30 years -- when we moved away from Denver. I persuaded a couple of out-of-town colleagues to join me there for dinner -- mostly for the decor and setting. I was very pleasantly surprised that the quality of the food was exceptional. I did not remember the food being as good as it is.
Great dining experience at a old west landmark. Simple light rail commute from downtown.
Chosen for the Rocky Mountain experience for someone who travels the country and has experienced local food from the east coast to the west coast. We nailed it from the RM Oysters to the Bison prime rib special. It was awesome. The place is filled with mounted trophies and stories. We’ll be back soon for more exotic tastes.
Feels like you're in the Old West. Great ambiance and unique Cuisine.
Unique in the most positive sense. Lots of history. Great food. Lots of taxidermy so vegans and animal lovers be aware of the environment. Super service. Great food. We will go out of our way to go again and take new friends
Have dined here many times with family and friends. It’s always a good experience...I have no complaints. The food, the service and the environment are always great. I do however, think that the prices are a bit high.
A great place to take friends, family, out of town visitors. Service is warm and responsive. A very nostalgic place that becomes a tradition --for me, over 50 years. Food is always good. Don't miss the apple pie.
Excellent food and service! Neat and unique interior. Definitely a “must” do experience!
I took my husband and friends here to celebrate a birthday. I do not eat meat but I was sure there would be a salad option... it was tiny! I realize this place specializes in meat, meat and meat but there could be an option of some sort other than a side salad. The service was very good and my husband enjoyed his birthday meal.
Great food! We both had the blackened Buffalo Prime Rib.
Food was great. The decor is very neat with a lot of history however its hard to see it all without disturbing other patrons. Tables are pretty close together. Not a place for a quiet, romantic dinner. My biggest issue was the bus staff. Every time you took a drink of water, the filled your glass, even if it was a sip. They would also reach across you and another person to fill your glass. Very invasive. A one time, must see.
Steak was expensive but terribly under-seasoned, underdone yet slightly burnt on the outside--zero flavor. Overall not a good experience, especially since the Buckhorn Exchange has been hyped as one of the best steak restaurants in Denver.
Great food! It's a one-of-kind place. Must visit!
I was in Denver for a college trip with my daughter and we weren't able to get a dinner reservation, so we opted for lunch instead. We're so glad that we did!!! It was fantastic - the decor and ambiance is great and nostalgic and the food was delicious. I highly recommend going if you've never been there.
This was the best experience we have had in Denver Colorado
We try to hit Buckhorn whenever we are in Denver
We love all of the taxidermy and memorabilia from the old west
The food is always good-I recommend the game-meat chili 😋
I ordered Lamb Chops - this was the first time I've had "tough" lamb chops any place. Food came out a bit too fast for me. Hadn't quite finished our appetizer (calamari) when the salads were served. Entrees came shortly thereafter. Because it was my birthday they paid for a dessert - ordered cheesecake - that was very good. My husband ordered the steak and said it was tender.
This is a fun place to take out-of-towners to get a look of Denver’s old West and sample food of the old west
Food was good - got the 2 pound steak for three people, plus rattlesnake con queso and game tips (beef, bison, and elk). Food tasted great! The beer (local craft brews) came in bottles vice draft, which was somewhat disappointing. Atmosphere is excellent, especially if you are into Old West history or hunting. The sides for the steak (mushrooms and onions) come mixed together, so make sure to ask if you want them separate, If you are allergic to tree nuts, be cautious as well - the house salad comes with chopped walnuts on it. Above all else, though - MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT!! The Dutch Apple Pie with cinnamon rum sauce and a scoop of vanilla ice cream is phenomenal! This was the second time I have eaten at Buckhorn. Everything tastes so great, you may need to be wheeled out of the restaurant when you're done eating, because you won't be able to move afterward!
Great time - pretty interesting. Love the ambiance. Solid 5/5.
The food was delicious, the service was wonderful. My only complaint it the amount of taxidermy animals. I honestly don't think there was a spare inch of wall. But I understand that it goes with the vibe. Just be warned if you go.
Excellent food with an interesting variety and very tasty.
Roz Brown was so good and such fun upstairs!
We went here for mg husbands 40th birthday.
The Buckhorn Exchange is infamous, especially for us Denver Natives. Neither of us had been here before.
The food was good, my husband said he had “the best apple pie of his life.” The portions were good, and the rattlesnake was exceptional.
This is definitely NOT an everyday restaurant, but for special occasions, it’s a fun place to go.
Great location for a unique dining experience. Anyone visiting Denver must visit and see the history of the west contained here! From presidential donations to Native American artifacts. The Buckhorn Exchange has it all!
Great dinner. Come hungry!
Both my and my wife’s steaks were burnt and tasted burnt.
