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.

We have been many times in the past and all was fantastic. This experience was not good! The server seemed irritated by everyone in the back room. We waited well over an hour to get our food. Something was up in the kitchen. After an 1 1/2 hours we said” if our food isn’t out in 10 min. We are leaving.” Food came out and was Luke warm. 4 of us. We probably will not go back. We live in the neighborhood. It’s too bad.

Get the ribeye. It’s worth every cent you’ll spend! One of the best all around dining experiences I’ve ever had. Great(and extremely knowledgeable) staff, great food and just a fun place to be. Brunch is phenomenal as well but the dinner is somehow even better!

It was 1:15hrs from ordering to being served on a Wednesday evening, and that was just for 2 steaks and 1 side. This is my third time here, and it's been extremely slow each time so I probably won't be back.

The service was pretty rough, too. The meat came first, but just the bare meat on a plate. The sides came an extra 10 minutes later, so we ended up eating our steaks by themselves, and then the sides by themselves. Felt very weird and like they didn't have their act together.

Our server was underdressed in baggy blue jeans and was totally spaced out and didn't know much about the menu or drinks.

For a $50+/per person dinner I expect much better quality of service.

Food is great, a bit on the expensive side for sure. It’s a little pretentious now that it’s got clout and a following. We got a charcuterie board to share (2 of us) and they essentially charged it per person. So it was about $20 per person for 8 slices of prosciutto and 8 of capicola as well as an ounce of cheese (to share). That was a bit disheartening. The food is great, but I could use a bit of a break on the pretentiousness.

This is a fun location with good food the prices were ridiculously expensive for small portions and fried chicken....
We landed at Old Major because they were the only restaurant that had openings for a reservation for 4 at 8:00pm.

Old Major continues to be one of the shining stars in the Denver dining scene. You can always count on fantastic cocktails/beer/wine and innovative/delious food. Fresh ingredients, unique flavor profiles, and interesting menu choices make for a memorable meal. Old Major ALWAYS delivers.

Dined with a friend - shared a few apps - the price on the entrees seemed high for a ladies dinner - i think a man would have no problem with a $45 steak lol

Old Major does not disappoint! The service was great! Gene the General Manager stopped by our table to checked on us as our friends have a lot of allergies. They were very accommodating with their needs. The drinks were amazing and were served with amazing large ice cubes. The food was presented wonderfully and all was great! Attention to detail at every corner! I’ve been wanting to check out Old Major for quite some time and am very happy we finally were able to make it. Phenomenal job and a huge thanks to the entire team!

Poor experience on a Friday evening. Ordered 4 small plates and food never came out, so we left after 90 minutes! 15-20 min after the order, we were told they ran out of one of the plates. We brought the wait up with the waiter 2x, but nothing. We cut our losses and paid for the drinks.

I felt the wine was terribly expensive. The food was very good quality but again very expensive.
We went to try the Lobster Poutine and it had been taken off the menu.

The food is excellent, the vibe stellar, love the open kitchen, BUT... if you’re going to allow me to see into your kitchen, why would you want me to notice that one of your cooks has a 5 inch long sweaty shaggy beard, with no net, or anything covering it to ensure that his DNA follicles will not land in my fried chicken? 🤢 Because of this, not sure I’ll be back, despite the stellar cuisine, excellent ambience, and exceptional service by Peggy Sue. I know beards are trendy and all the rage in hot happening Denver, but they do in fact harbor various forms of bacteria, skin follicles, and whatever else you can probably imagine, depending on what said cook did the night before or how he maintains his personal hygiene. How about let’s make a deal... have this fella cover his beard, and I’ll be back for plenty more. If not, maybe all done. Despite this little disturbance in the force, I have given you honest high ratings in all categories! I’ve greatly enjoyed my dining experiences at Old Major. Thanks! Peace!

I knew Old Major was different when I looked across the dining room and saw a couple sitting by a glass enclosed space. Anywhere else it would probably be a wine room, but at Old Major it’s where they age their in-house made charcuterie.

Our little group took shared plates literally and enjoyed the charcuterie with cheese, the averna ribs and Muscovy duck in grits. Each one was incredibly flavorful and well executed. Kudos to the mixologist for the delicious and cleverly named cocktails. And dessert! Just as good as everything that preceded it.

I can’t wait to go back

Always loved this restaurant, but the change in menu (don't know when this occurred) was a bummer. The move to more "shared plates" was a loss for me/us, and I'm far less likely to return with this change. Much prefer the traditional meal size/type that they used to have.

Had Sunday brunch on Palm Sunday. The service was excellent and the Ham Egg Benedict was superb. The portion was large enough to split! I really enjoyed the brunch menu and would return.
My only negative is "parking." But thats true of the whole area in the neighborhood.

WOW!!! What a fun and delicious meal! The service was incredible, the food was absolutely delicious and the drinks were stellar.

Our server Joe recommended we order family style, and what a great suggestion. The oysters were the freshest that I have ever tasted, the fried chicken was crispy and flavorful on the outside and melt in your mouth on the inside, my husband loved the lobster poutine and the bacon and egg was cooked perfectly! Best octopus I have had and the papas bravas were so crunchy and delicious. The halibut and the ribeye were cooked to perfection and super flavorful.

What a night!!

We will be back soon.

We've been to Old Major many times and suddenly, they've changed how their menu works. They have a bunch of overpriced, tiny shared plates. Then they have a list of overpriced proteins which you can pair up with their overpriced side dishes. I miss having composed entrees which consist of the protein and sides that are thoughtfully paired within the entrée by the chef.

It also seems like they're continually raising their prices to see how much they can get people to pay. I don't think we'll go back if it stays the way it is now.

Fantastic food, great service, wonderful flavors, we consider ourselves foodies as have tried Michelin rated restaurants in NYC, London, Italy, etc and this has to be one of our top 10 favorites. The flavors, are just crisp, fresh and delish. We had a party of 6 and probably ordered almost one of everything on the menu and loved everything. Don’t hesistate!
