If the name of this place reminds you of the Boston landmark, you’re on to something. It was named after Steuben’s, a Beantown hot spot from the 1940s well into the ’60s, known for jazz, big band shows, and parties. Steuben’s in Denver aspires to all that. The restaurant serves American comfort food like meat loaf, chicken and waffles, milkshakes, and lobster rolls in a retro-groovy diner setting. The formula has proven so successful that another location in nearby Arvada opened in 2016.
When in Denver, go to Steuben's. Eat mac and cheese, the cubano, habanero fried corn, and the collard greens. Eat everything. Drink Moscow Mules. After numerous visits and multiple meals, I have never been disappointed. It's a slice of heaven in the Mile High City. Although most people are happy in Denver, the staff here always has a smile.
