Westword's Description

The Fort is a theme restaurant. Sure, it's been called better things (a museum of culinary history, a gastronomic time capsule) and worse (the fabulous obsession of one of the New West's great hucksters), but it's still a theme restaurant -- part Old West reliquary, part Planet Hollywood with cowboys. The servers all wear costumes, the walls are hung with artifacts of the trapper/trader/Indian-fighter culture of Olde Timey Colorado, and the menu is an intellectual exploration of the West's close-to-the-land culinary past. On top of all this, the place itself is, well, a fort, a brick-by-brick replica of Bent's Fort.

Merchant's Description

Join us for some shinin' times at The Fort! The Fort, an award-winning restaurant located in Southwest Denver, is one of the nation's most recognized establishments and sells more buffalo steaks than any other independently owned restaurant in the country. Featuring fine beef, buffalo, game and seafood, The Fort's menu offers a tantalizing selection of old and new foods from the Early West.

    This was one of the most enjoyable dinners and experiences I've ever had. Our server was polite, informative and responsive.

    Gotta do the Game Plate: Bison, Elk, and Quail. Wonderful taste, not "gamey" at all.
