While our resort is a highly regarded destination for fine dining, Play offers a distinctly fun take on dining at The Broadmoor. The menu is designed to delight, with whimsical plates that combine retro Americana favorites such as a custom burger bar with house blend beef patties, chicken and vegetarian options. Classic salads and flatbreads round out the menu to satisfy the pickiest of palates. Adults can enjoy nostalgic cocktails, Colorado microbrews, wines, and spirits, or an adult milkshake while catching the game at the bar. This fun-filled Colorado restaurant also features bowling lanes, a shuffleboard table, a pool table, foosball and game monitors to keep the family fun going all night.

Our service was so slow (the place was almost empty when we arrived) and we paid $100 for 2 burgers and 2 drinks. We are blue collar, hard working class people coming for one night to try to get away for a big birthday, and choose this place over the others because it was the cheapest. The automatic 20% gratuity on everything is a complete scam and rip off. This means you can have horrible, slow service and you have to pay an outrageous amount for it. The food was just barely okay and way over salty.

The Broadmoor overall is only for a certain class of people that can bleed a ton of money for nothing. This is not even remotely affordable for the middle class. The only good reviews I have seen were all from people who came here on business and didn’t have to pay for themselves.

This was a great place to visit, eat some great food and do some bowling. Just be prepared to spend some money. Dinner, drinks for 2 and a kid with an hour of bowling was well over 200. Would go again for the great service and comfortable atmosphere, but for the price will not be doing it all the time.

Has a fantastic lunch, incredible service as you expect at any of the Broadmoor facilities. Would have marked it louder if more bowling had been going on, but only a few frames were played while we ate. Reasonable prices.

We went here with some friends while staying at the Broadmoor and had an excellent time. The food is classic American but with quality ingredients and creativity in every dish. Definitely would recommend and just like any restaurant at the Broadmoor, the service is top notch.

The menu has changed and now very limited options--pizza, burgers and salads. Prices went up and the quality of the food went down. The flatbread pizza used to be my son's favorite, rectangular and served on a wooden plank, but now just a generic round pizza. It was very noisy and service was not great. Had to wait about 20 minutes to get the check after the server cleared our plates. They also automatically add a 24% tip.

Our experience was absolutely AWFUL! Service was super slow, went a long time with empty beverages and to top it all off I asked for a burger no pink. The first was actually red and bloody, 30 mins later a 2nd was brought out. Mind you by this time my entire family was already done eating.. the 2nd burger was still pink! What a nice way to ruin my meal with my family. The manager didnt even have enough decency to come to the table and apologize. I wouldn't recommend this restuarant to anyone and I will be sharing my review everywhere possible. For a Broadmoor restuarant this place is such a shame!!

Boring menu- not worth the $. The spinach salad was flavourless and too simple. Tatortots were exactly what I have in my freezer. We love the Broadmoor and will not be going back to Play. Now I know why I hadn't been back in a couple of years.

The food is in line with a bar/billiards atmosphere- nachos, wings, burgers were all good. The key is to book your bowling reservation as far in advance as you make dinner reservations. Bowling filled up fast during our week.

I was a bit worried that we wouldn't enjoy the food, since I read a lot of reviews stating it was not as good as it should be, but I would have to disagree. They cooked our medium and medium rare burgers perfectly. Food was hot and drinks were tasty with great presentation. The service was excellent. They were nice enough to prepare our table with balloons and flowers for our special celebration. We bowled after dinner and the service was still excellent! I would recommend anyone to go, it's a lot of fun with a great atmosphere! Our party of 5 enjoyed everything about our visit!

We had late night Alcohol Shakes and Chicken Nachos. It was all good! Just a little confused about the 20% service charge added to all food bills. Our waiter did not tell us about it, but our waitress at the Golden Bee earlier that day did. Still was unclear if this is the gratuity tip or some other resort fee. If it is indeed a tip, we way over tipped for breakfast, where they did not tell us about it either, or if it is not, we under tipped at the other restaurants. Other than that, it was great!

My daughter and i were here for my birthday weekend. We decided to go light for dinner because we had reservations for Sunday brunch. We ordered 3 appetizers: tuna poke, calamari and wings. Everything was simply delicious, but the staff made everything very special. I really appreciated their kindness and friendliness. I ordered a Thyme for Play cocktail and the drink was amazingly tasty. My daughter ordered the creamy, festive chocolate shake and they gave it to us for free. We had such a good time for just a casual dinner. So much thanks!

We were very disappointed. We took our grandchildren here for the weekend. We couldn't get bowling reservations but were assured there were many other things for the kids to do. There were some other things like foosball and pool, but they were constantly used so our kids got to do nothing. Food was ok, nothing outstanding. Prices were ridiculous for what it was.

We found Play very disappointing, ordered an appetizer and burgers, one was over cooked, and took forever to get a second burger, two of our people didn’t even eat them and didn’t care to. One flat bread had jalapeños on it that were so hot it made my husband choke, even once he took them off he could barely eat half of it, and it was extremely small to begin with. The service was so slow and it was very, very warm in the restaurant, making it quite uncomfortable. I would not go back. For the amount of money we spent and none of us enjoyed it enough to even finish our meal was pathetic.

Food was great, and we even ended up with a plate of complimentary nachos. The only thing I didn’t care for was they automatically added 20% gratuity to our check; it was only me, my husband, our 2 year old, and newborn. I thought that was only used for big parties. Anyhow, it was great and we will definitely try more dining options at The Broadmoor in the future!

We wanted a casual environment since we had the kids with us so we chose Play. It wasn't bad, but the menu is very limited. The atmosphere is casual but not nearly as amazing as the rest of the property. We were a little disappointed with our choice and will choose differently next time if we get the chance to get back to the Broadmoor.

The food is overpriced and barely edible. No one in our group could believe how truly awful it was, given this is a Broadmoor restaurant. I cannot overstate how bad it was. It started with the nachos that literally were drowning in liquid cheez product with a plop of guac and sour cream - nothing else, not even salsa. We asked for salsa and were delivered a serving in what appeared to be a thimble. Nothing improved from there. Super disappointing.

Don't really leave reviews but thought I would on this one. Neat idea with the games and it was well advertised that bowling required separate reservations. What rubbed us the wrong way was they have a shuffleboard table, foosball table & pool table. We sat and ordered and never once saw anyone at the shuffleboard table so we got up to play while we were waiting for our food and after we had been playing for about 10 minutes the hostess came over and told us the table had been reserved by someone else there but that they were leaving and said it would be OK if we played. I understand about reserving bowling, but come on, you have to reserve everything? And no where was any of that posted. If you are not going to post it anywhere then at least have the server explain it. Plus, if you are not actively playing then you shouldn't be able just to reserve it so no one else can play. Food was average and overpriced.
