We had a few people recommend this place and it often seems pretty busy, but we were certainly not impressed. We did not care for the fries and the fried chicken was dry and lackluster. We cannot figure out why this place is often so busy. We were not impressed with the food and the service wasn't that great. We... More

I love this place. I eat here every year when I attend a trade show in Denver. The food is first rate, the service friendly and prompt, the prices exceptionally reasonable. If you like upscale diner food (meatloaf, BEST FRIED CHICKEN EVER!) this is the place for you. Next year I will eat here twice. It's that good.

Went here after a late night meeting and took advantage of their late night happy hour. I had fried chicken and an old fashioned. Food was good and the drinks and beer selections were good. We enjoyed the outdoor patio and the service was good.

We walked here from Broadway as a group for a lunch to say goodbye to an employee leaving the state. The service was great. We did not have a reservation, but they worked to get us in quickly. The service staff made ordering very quick and were always refilling the water jugs. The reason this visit stuck out to me... More

Best Cuban sandwich I tasted in a very long time!! It's a busy restaurant and it looks retro chic and hip. Parking is free but crowded. Would definitely visit again.

Restaurants in Denver don't seem to last for decades so when does you should take note. Steuben's is on East 17th Ave which in itself has gone through some ups and downs over the past 30 years. It seems to have been stable for a while now. The menu is pretty diverse with a nice variety of items including some... More

Had the herb-roasted chicken (as seen on DDD) Juicy and succulent with a yummy herb crust coating.. Specialized drinks that were all great. The desserts are "to-die-for"....highly recommend the lemon icebox bar...so beautiful you'll take a picture of it and scrumptious!

Top to bottom solid -- nothing spectacular but everything is tasty -- service can be harried but they deal skillfully with the hordes

Description
What are your first three food and drink related visits when you head to your hometown? What do you order? Fried Clams from Kelly's? Supreme Sauce from Raynor's? A slice from Joe's? A take out order of a green-chili cheeseburger from The Owl Cafe? Maybe it's that hot dog from Pink's or those sticky ribs from Thelma's. Or do you head home for a bowl of Mom's chicken soup and brisket? We return to these classic spots for the comfort, the subtly unique flavor, the consistency, the familiarity, and the memories of both the food and the experience. Only one place can set the standard for certain foods. Lovers of food have their own "greatest hits collection." We yearn for that blissful moment that uses the powers of food, smell, sight, taste, and memory to take us to a happy place; that after school hangout, the corner deli, the pizza place and sometimes even Mom's kitchen. Steuben's is named after a restaurant in Boston that my Great Uncles, Max and Joe, opened in 1945. Steuben's became a famous Boston restaurant, nightclub, and hotspot from the 1940's to the 1960's on Boylston Street. The Vienna Room, The Cave, and The Blue Room were all part of the Steuben's space and hosted Big Band, Jazz, and Swing groups with The Rat Pack, Proms and Sweet Sixteens and more. In its prime, Steuben's was the center of the Boston dining and nightlife scene. Steuben's, Denver, is a restaurant that respects the history of its name and the core ingredients of the American Regional classics we have attempted to recreate. These dishes are America's cuisine and American's interpretations of the dishes of our diverse cultural heritage. We have enjoyed the endless debates, opinions, stories, research, consultations and food memories that have led us to the opening version of the Steuben's menu. Eat at Steuben's. Take-Out from Steuben's. Drink at Steuben's. Feel at home, in Denver, at Steuben's.
