Service was slow, my brother’s steak was cold. They took it back and threw it under the broiler so it was charred and dry when it came back. They did the right thing and took it off the bill. The rest of our meals were fine. I probably wouldn’t go back or recommend.

Always top-notch food and service at Cowboy Star. Pricier, but worth it. Dining room was quite chilly last night - even with a sweater on.

A great meal. Every item was absolutely delicious. The service was flawless. It’s obvious that those working take pride in making it a memorable dining experience.

The questions I always ask myself are would I return and recommend Cowboy Star as a place to spend my dining entertainment dollars?

That’s an easy answer YES and YES
The Cowboy Star shines bright !

The cooks must have been having a bad day on Nov 21 2021 six dinners or either over cooked or undercooked every single dinner was over seasoned almost like it was way too much salt we were there celebrating my wife’s birthday her meat was so rare on the inside and well done on the outside she had asked for it to be medium after taking it back they tried to fix it came back worse and up just giving her the plate for free although she did not eat her food. Server was awesome she was the best we’ve always had her before usually the food is really great here but on this day we give it a thumbs down even you could see it in the kitchen that they were just having a bad day even cussing at each other and just look like everyone was fighting I could feel the tension in the kitchen. More than likely we will return to give it another try. But I don’t know what was happening on this day.

We were there for our 44th wedding anniversary. They had a card signed by the staff and a red long stem rose at our table when we arrived. Our menu had Happy Anniversary on it also. The food was fabulous. I have allergies had they accommodate them. We are going to go for our 45th next year.

Wonderful dinner, yet again. Only complaint is that the dozen oysters are WAY over-priced considering they average the size of a teaspoon of jelly. We were "misguided" by our waiter who promised us they were much larger, resulting in our ordering them and being sorely disappointed when they were served. He did not seem to really care that he had not been truthful.
Pricey place! A 10 oz Kobe strip steak = $240. Needless to say we did not order that preferring to go on a long weekend vacation instead. The filet, however, was marvelous!

We moved to Colorado Springs about 17 months ago. We had developed a list of restaurants that were either recommended or were rated as some of the best. My wife and I agreed that the Cowboy Star is clearly the best of the best. The service was over the top and the food was impeccably delicious. Going forward this will be our date night out and special occasion go to. I highly recommend Cowboy Star.

We had a wonderful meal from start to finish. The service was top notch, Sean was personable and welcoming!
We enjoyed the Sunday Supper prime rib and it was phenomenal!
Dessert is a MUST when dining here. The Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding is a chocolate lover’s dream, I personally asked about their house made ice creams and was blown away by the fun flavors they offered. They had an oatmeal raisin that was blew me away.
We will definitely be back and love every experience we have at Cowboy Star!

Such a wonderful anniversary experience. They left a rose and card signed by the staff at our table. The drinks were delicious, we got a whiskey sour and an old fashioned. The bison New York strip and the 21 day aged new York strip were cooked perfectly to medium rare. The mashed potatoes had a touch of horseradish which really made them stand out. We got the bread pudding for dessert and it was great. Oysters were fresh. The staff were on top of it and very knowledgeable. We had Sean as our server and he was great.

We did have to wait for our table a little bit , but we very much enjoyed sitting around the fire in the waiting area with our family. I am from Ohio so I don’t like going to places that I can go to in Ohio. Well nothing like Cowboy Star near me. Drinks were fabulous and food was amazing. It was an experience from beginning to end. I will be back for sure . Enjoyed seeing into the kitchen also . Espresso Martini topped with fresh whipped cream is a must get

Great A5 "Kobe" steak that was truly buttery. My wife was hesitant, but she loved it too. We had the wedge salad, A5 steak, U10 scallops, with mashed potatoes and brocollini. All was perfectly cooked and the steak did not even need a knife. Great service from Rachel and the rest of the complimentary staff. Great birthday dinner and night in general. P.S. She also loved the perfect Tangueray and Tonic. Mixologist did a great job too. Thanks for a great birthday for my wife.

We were given a gift card from our realtor that we used to buy a house in the springs
this year. She had been there and highly recommended the Cowboy Star. Steven our waiter was so helpful walking us threw the menu asking us meaningful questions not
the usual " I have it all the time I highly recommend it " .

A little pricy but worth it
