Just had the BEST lobster tail and lobster corn dogs Colorado and this country has to offer. Thank you to the chef- Brian. Lived in Boston area for over 30 years and like the many great steak /seafood restaurants there, The Famous nailed it here today. Yes, everyone already knows the steaks are delish but wait until you try the... More

The menu was comprehensive for lunch and I very much enjoyed the Chicken Oscar. My colleagues had equally enjoyable meals and the service was great. Central to downtown Colorado Springs and highly recommended.

At a certain age (HINT: over 65), you begin to see some things as they used to be. And The Famous brought us right back to the age when fine dining was the rule, not the exception. Yes, it's a bit expensive, but you get what you pay for. At The Famous, you get superb meals - especially the steaks... More

We ate lunch here via a gift certificate. The Ahi main was perfection, the ribeye only so-so. We both ordered French Onion soup which was very good. The crust on the creme brulee we ordered for dessert was too thick, indicating it had been sitting in the fridge for a bit. Presentation of the dishes as good, extensive wine list... More

My review: meh. The food was good, nothing spectacular...same with the service. It was an OK meal and pretty much what you would expect for a high end steakhouse. $50+ for a 16oz strip with bleu cheese...ala carte! Although it was a good meal, I can't see myself returning when there are much better alternatives at lower prices.

A Chicago styled steakhouse with really large portions, the Famous can be a lively place. On a recent visit, the noise was so LOUD that it was almost impossible to talk to our dinner guests. The man banging on the piano and people singing added to the festivities as well as the exceptionally high decibel count. The steak I shared... More

We enjoyed a wonderful belated Valentine's dinner here. Steaks were well prepared and seasoned. The Oscar topping on the small filet was especially nice. Sides are quite large and meant to be shared. Loved the asparagus! A nice wine list to partner with any entree. We enjoyed creme brulee for dessert with coffee and a liqueur.

We had a lovely dinner at "the Famous". This is the first meal I've thought was up to the reviews of this restaurant. The ribeye was excellent, the salad yummy and the creme brûlée was sublime. The bourbon selection is very good and the bartenders make a great old fashioned. The highlight of the meal was our server, Jeff, who... More
