Old Major is one of Chef Justin Brunson's concepts in the Denver Highlands neighborhood featuring refined farmhouse cuisine with a focus on seafood, swine & wine. The menu boasts an in-house butchery & charcuterie program, sustainably sourced seafood and ingredients sourced from local farms.

Taking its name from the tufted Middle White Boar that dreamt of rebellion, Old Major seeks to follow suit: rebelling against the ideas of what fine dining must be.

Old Major offers lunch, dinner, happy hour and brunch, along with private dining and off-site catering options with dishes starting at $12. The full bar features a creative cocktail program, craft beer & wine.

Wow! What a wonderful experience it’s been over a year since we last visited and it keeps improving. The food was fabulous, we had the lamb appetizer with polenta oh my god so good. The star of the meal was the Wagyu NY strip from Snake River Farms in Idaho beautifully marbled and cooked to perfection. Try the butterscotch dessert a perfect ending to our meal. Now for the best part the service Caleb was the best, so knowledgeable and professional he actually made our experience over the top. Can’t wait to go back! Justin Brunson the Chef and owner is brilliant and does not disappoint. Congratulations Justin on all your success!

It was delicious and service was great. We had the 3lb pork chop, it was amazing. The shepard's pie it came with and the biscuits were my favorite sides. We also shared the butterscotch pot de creme...OMG so good.

Love this place. Food is amazing (get the fried chicken and pretzel bites off the happy hour menu). Drinks are amazing ($6 old fashions during happy hour). Outstanding service. Love this place.

Poor start, but good finish. We came for brunch and it was a good brunch crowd. We were seated right away, but sat for close to 15 minutes without anyone coming to the table. After asking the host who our server was a new server took over and everything was good. We had the PB & W cocktail and what fun! Peanut butter whiskey with chocolate bitters. Sweet, but mellowed at the ice melted. Good cocktail. Chicken & waffles was outstanding. Their chicken is always good. This iteration was like a chicken fried chicken, boneless breast and thigh over a good waffle with real maple syrup. Yum. We also had the crab cake Benedict. House made crab cake that was very good. Lots of crab. The hollandaise is excellent as are the potatoes. Very good finish!

I felt as a lesser when the server waited on us. I don’t say that often, but I didn’t feel welcomed. My wife and I got the charcuterie board and two drinks (beers) and the server was not attentive to us as he appeared to be with others. The food was not a good value as the charcuterie was very small and included “summer sausage” which ok, but the price didn’t reflect it and we added cheese for an upcharge of $4 and it was roughly the size of 6x quarters. Definitely won’t be back and highly disappointed.

The food was average at best
We had to wait 1/2 hour past our CONFIRMED reservation time
The waiter was nonexistent
The noise level was lousy for a Sunday morning brunch atmosphere

Yikes. Usually great food and service but something was definitely off this time. It was half an hour after being sat that we got our first drinks and 45 minutes after that we got our food. Which was good. When we paid they charged us a lot more than what the check said and when we pointed it out the manager argued with us? Like I said usually great and we will go back because we love it but yikes.

The service was excellent but the food was excessively salty, overpriced and luke-warm upon arrival. There was a very long wait between appetizers and the meal.

Holy Salt. The Chef there has quite a heavy hand. $200 steak that tasted like rotting meat. The server was not attentive. Definitely not going back.

Had a great lunch in the bar area near patio--- bustling but quiet with good music, delicious food, and good service. The way it should be--- and preferred over other places we ate in the area where obnoxious music was blasting and we couldn't talk!

Service was so great! Our server was so nice and attentive, especially to our fussy baby. I give them a 10/10 for that, they were really great.

The food is ok. Nothing amazing that would make me want to come back. I’m a bit of a food snob though.

Pricey for “ok” food.

Our waiter was super rude. It was weird- the hostess and bar staff and food were amazing but we had a male waiter who would walk by and check on us and we asked for another round of drinks and he was out right rude. Will not go back.

Fairly disappointed. $20 Dollar crab omelette which was completely bland. Greens way over dressed. Guess they only do pork well. Drinks were great but they charge $1 for their block ice cubes. I mean the drink was $14 dollars and you have to pay for the ice???

So different than my other 2 experiences there a couple of years ago. Disappointing - definitely not impressing my out of town guests.

I used to love Old Major but the prices are high and the value doesn't seem commensurate with what you get. There are too many other restaurants to choose from.

We had brunch with a reservation at 10:30am and it was mostly calm. We were initially slotted to sit inside in the bar area but the staff were flexible with moving us outside as it was a beautiful day. As it got later, more people naturally trickled in so it never felt too crowded. The serves were efficient and helpful. Food was delicious. The only two drawbacks (and I can only speak about the patio seating) was that the chairs/tables were VERY close together which lead to the other issue of the noise level being pretty high. The whole patio, if they wanted, could hear your conversation.

I would absolutely return for another brunch!

My wife and I went to Old Major for my wife’s birthday and it was amazing! The staff really came through to make this such a great experience for us, we can’t wait to go back. Not many places you can get and 80 day, 2 lb., dry aged prime ribeye - it did not disappoint. He compote and house made steak sauce were good as well, but not needed. The steak was a bit of heaven on earth. Thanks to our waiter,Hector, along with the other staff, for really going the extra mile to make it a special night!

Our server introduced himself took the order and at the end left the bill. Never checked on us, never gave any explanations, never talked up the restaurant. If he would have checked on us I would have told him in person the main course was lacking. Overall bad service and meal.
