Westword's Description

Henry H. Zeitz opened his restaurant in this spot more than a century ago, after scouting for Buffalo Bill Cody, and although the ownership of the Buckhorn Exchange has changed over the years, the upstairs bar remains a veritable museum of beer steins and shotguns, the downstairs dining rooms a taxidermy zoo of delicious mammals distantly related to what will soon arrive on your plate. Although you can order everything from buffalo to yak to rattlesnake here, the Big Steak -- big indeed, bloody rare and served with all the trimmings -- is the dish to get.

    quaint? No, pretty grundgy at best, surprised that state health inspector hasn't shut them down.

    Wayyy overpriced and wayyy overated. Customer service is the absolute worst I've dealt with anywhere. Food is indeed exotic, but very poorly prepared. The woman manager has a "don't like it go some where else" attitude, and all complaints go thru her. She has 0 professionalism, so she obviously has other talents to land her position. Save your money, this place sucks!

    Denver's oldest and most unique restaurant, as seen on Man v Food: Denver!

    Since you're here and this place was the 1st. one to be allowed to sell alcohol after the prohibition, order an Odell 90 Shilling, locally brewed in Colorado!

    You must try the rocky mountain oysters!

    Established in 1893, it is Denver's oldest and most unique restaurant! The Buckhorn Exchange was issued Colorado’s Liquor License No. 1, when the prohibition laws were repealed in 1933.
