Steakhouse
Situated in the Red Rocks country 17 miles southwest of Denver on Hwy 285, The Fort is a true replica of Bent's Fort, (1833-1849), the first American fur trade post in Colorado. The Cheyenne, Arapahoe, Kiowa and Pawnee traded and intermarried at Bent's Old Fort, creating an economic and peaceful exchange of cultures in an otherwise violent West. The Fort building is on the National Registry of Historic Places, and celebrates the many cultures that traded at Bent's Old Fort. Our menu features "New Foods of the Old West" including the best cuts of buffalo, elk and quail, grilled to perfection. There are vegetarian options inspired by American Indian recipes including Corn Beans and Squash, known as the Three Sacred Sisters. The wine list is awarded the Wine Spectator each year, and the nine dining rooms, with intimate seating, has a 350 seat capacity, with real adobe "beehive "fireplaces that burn wood in the winter and fall months. Romantic. Amazing views of the Valley and Mountains!

    The atmosphere was great. The salad and bread were excellent. The food was not that great. The waiter did not like that we asked to split our check for 3 people.

    We love the prickly pear margarita. So delicious. We ordered the spicy bean and cheese dip for the first time last night. The chips were warm and delicious with the dip. The Guacamole is an always order option!

    Restaurant shows it's age. Furniture and ambiance show their age. Menu is overpriced and food was mid. Too bad.

    As always, dinner at The Fort was outstanding. We were celebrating a birthday and the four of us all had excellent entrees. Duck, lamb, beef, they were all outstanding. Service was friendly and attentive as we have come to expect, and except for a few noisy kids, the atmosphere was wonderful. The Fort soon provided the children with coloring books which helped calm things down. We don't think of The Fort as a kids restaurant, and usually when parents do bring them, they are better behaved. All in all, we had a lovely time: Good drinks, good food, good friends.

    From our Old West inspired cuisine, to our attentive staff and historic atmosphere, I’m delighted you enjoyed everything The Fort has to offer! Please dine with us again soon. - Holly Arnold Kinney, Proprietress
