About

OUR DINING ROOM IS OPEN FROM 4:30 TO 8:00 TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY. PLEASE CALL US DIRECTLY AT 303-670-0941 TO MAKE A RESERVATION OR BUY A GIFT CARD! THANK YOU.

The Black Hat Cattle Co. is the place to go if you are 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; our bone-in steaks are dry aged in-house, and hand cut daily to maximize flavor and tenderness. We season our steaks with only salt and pepper and grill them at a searing 1800 degrees so you can taste the difference in our all natural beef. We also offer a diverse menu including chicken dishes and a variety of tempting fresh fish and seafood entrees. We go beyond the obvious quality of food and drink - we embrace the welcoming spirit of the West.

It’s been a long time since we had a meal like that. It was fabulous! From the salad to the after dinner coffee. The salad wasn’t like your typical restaurant salad. I loved all the different greens and the Greek olives. We both had the ribeye with asparagus. The steak melts in your mouth. This is THE place to go for special occasions.

Sirloin was not the most tender I’ve had. Drunk at the bar was noisy.

This used to be our favorite steak house, unfortunately we were very disappointed the past couple times we dined there. Not the quality we were looking forward to based on past experiences 😔

Loved our experience. This is one of our favorites.
The only think I would add is you are not offered the early dine menu. It is necessary to ask for it which is not above board. In addition there is a different price posted on the web site. To me this is a bit misleading.

Dave and his team always provide superb food and service. It is our go-to place when company is in town. And for more casual fare, the bar is a great place to hang out and order appetizers or their full menu.

Although this wasn't my first time dining here, it was disappointing. With a reservation, we were seated immediately, but service was slow. Waitress was less attentive as our meal progresses. She did not give us the early dine menu, we had to ask. Also took a long time for food to come out. Ordered the NY Strip steak, and it was very grisly and tough. No seasoning at all. Nor was it cooked medium well as ordered, it was rather rare. Took forever to get dessert ordered and delivered, and even longer to pay bill and leave. Bill was sitting on table with card for roughly 10 minutes, before waitress noticed.

Just an overall disappointing experience. Probably will not be back. The creamed corn was good though!

We've dined at Black Hat Cattle Co before, and had a great dining experience at that time. After staying in Evergreen over the weekend, we've decided to go there again, and the dining experience was very pleasant again. The staff is very friendly, and the Entrees we've had were superior. Whenever we go visiting this area, the Black Hat Cattle Co is a must to visit for lunch or Dinner.

Best overall steak place in Denver. Like these places used to be. Worth the drive, honest good food and service, zero snobbiness and one of the best Western Art collections around. This place would be a home run spot in somewhere like Aspen and it’s local in Kitridge.

Overall, we liked this restaurant. However, the music was a little loud and the service was very slow. We were there for 2 hours to have our meal. The waitress seemed to have forgotten us at various points throughout the meal and we had to wait. At one point, one of our party did get up to find the waitress so we could get on with our meal (she had cleared the plates, but left us sitting waiting to order dessert). The food was very good, just not excellent. The meats (trout, steak, chicken) were all a little overdone. The desserts were excellent.

We were there a few minutes early and had a window seat for us. Our server was excellent and the food was terrific. You never felt rushed to hurry up and eat. Love the ambiance there.

Always a great welcome at Black Hat! Ambiance is terrific partly due to Patsy Cline and the selection of classic country tunes. Food is always the best. We went for Thanksgiving to avoid turkey for a change of pace and were not disappointed.

We lived in Littleton for 18 years and yet never came to this quaint place. It was open on Thanksgiving so we came here and had the best beef and elk we’ve ever had in our entire lives. We cannot wait to come back for more elk.

My wife and I tried Black Hat for the first time and loved it. The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The restaurant was nicely decorated and very clean. The steaks were delicious and cooked perfectly. We took the kids back a couple of days later and enjoyed a similar experience. It’s our new favorite steakhouse.

We ordered the lobster app, elk medallions, and NY strip. All were excellent. Very glad we tried the chef's special rice side dish - be sure to ask about it! So good. Better than the high end steak places down the hill.
