Racine's is a central Denver staple, consistently serving a wide range of good food in a contemporary, comfortable setting with professional, friendly staff. It is really versatile - a good place for a business lunch, dinner out with friends and Sunday brunch with kids. It isn't trendy or particularly innovative - but it is tried and true and dependably good.... More

When I first heard of Racine's (decades ago), it was. "where the elite meet to eat." Off course, Denver doesn't have such a celebrity "elite" as other towns, which is why we all love it, and because Racine's is too good, and so central, and has such a long tradition os being Racine's, you might see anybody from Colorado there...

We've been visiting Racine's since the 80's and the fare has always been good and the service attentive. We stopped in for lunch yesterday and our choices were, as usual, prepared well and tasty. We opted for the Mandarin Orange Chicken Salad and the Prime Rib French Philly - both were excellent.

Racine's is practically a Denver institution; it has been around for years and consistently puts out very good food. Menu is mostly American fare, but there should be something there for just about everybody. I recently had the Ahi tuna sandwich. The Ahi was a beautiful filet of sushi grade tuna that had been perfectly seared. The mayo sauce could... More

Racine's is a Denver institution now having settled in to it's 6th and Sherman location after moving from the Golden Triangle. It's a quiet place usually for breakfast during the week, with business folks and politicians mingling for good coffee and consistently good breakfast food. Come by on a Sunday brunch, and be ready to stand in line (you can... More

The staff at Racine's is always kind, efficient, and attentive. A great place to go for a wide variety of different dishes. The menu always satisfies whatever we're craving from a meaty burger, to fresh fish, with much in between. The atmosphere is fun and energetic. The bar is a great place to sit and have dinner or lunch too.... More

We were stopping on the way home. Planned on going to zoo. Wanted early dinner. We looked like tourists "on the road." Actually saw Racine's using trip advisor. We were a bit reluctant because we were very casual. The restaurant was beatiful. Booths, tables... Classy in a traditional way. We ate at bar. Service exceptional and VERY friendly. I had... More

All kinds of dishes make this a good choice. Breakfast items always available, great salads, entrees and sandwiches. Good service, friendly atmosphere. Always a good choice. Great patio area in the warm weather. Highly recommend it!

I was in Denver for a training course for a week. Racine's was very close to my hotel and I went there twice, once for dinner and once for lunch. Racine's has a nice variety of food choices and beers on draft. The food was prepared well and the service was good. The prices were reasonable. I liked it enough... More
