Steakhouse
Situated in the Red Rocks country 17 miles southwest of Denver on Hwy 285, The Fort is a true replica of Bent's Fort, (1833-1849), the first American fur trade post in Colorado. The Cheyenne, Arapahoe, Kiowa and Pawnee traded and intermarried at Bent's Old Fort, creating an economic and peaceful exchange of cultures in an otherwise violent West. The Fort building is on the National Registry of Historic Places, and celebrates the many cultures that traded at Bent's Old Fort. Our menu features "New Foods of the Old West" including the best cuts of buffalo, elk and quail, grilled to perfection. There are vegetarian options inspired by American Indian recipes including Corn Beans and Squash, known as the Three Sacred Sisters. The wine list is awarded the Wine Spectator each year, and the nine dining rooms, with intimate seating, has a 350 seat capacity, with real adobe "beehive "fireplaces that burn wood in the winter and fall months. Romantic. Amazing views of the Valley and Mountains!

    The Fort is an eclectic restaurant that brings a modern flair to original Colorado cuisine. I appreciate the artistic license this restaurant takes with some old school recipes. A definitely place to take a new Colorado visitor. A little pricey, but you are paying for a high end experience. A good recommend

    This was only our second time to the fort we came up last year and enjoyed a wonderful dinner too. This time the service and food was very slow but for the most part still very enjoyable. The view is worth it alone. The Bison filet is amazing 💕 I really do wish they served baked potatoes though their side options are slim and if they added some other options I think it would be more enjoyable

    The Fort always is outstanding. Their special programs and themed dinners are wonderful. The meat is incredibly tender whether it is elk, beef or bison. The vegetables are well prepared and tasty, salads and bread service outstanding.

    We calculated we’ve been to the Fort over 100 times over the past 30 years and it has always maintained its high standards of service, food and quality.  This is the first time we had visited on Mother’s Day and enjoyed, off of the special menu, the chili rubbed bison fillet, which was delicious. As always, the service was impeccable and friendly, and the ambience was warm and inviting. Fort is truly a part of Colorado and important to the community and everyone should take the opportunity to visit and enjoy a wonderful meal.

    We decided on the salmon and we asked if we could split it and they said yes, and on the side salad, we wanted to dressing on the side which they failed to do. They failed to do a split on the salad .They were unable to keep up with our water refill..  The salmon was overcooked and a very small portion and probably should have been warned that there’s not enough salmon or this portion was too small to split The rice looked like it had been under heat lamps, and crusted over and very dry This is not our first time at this restaurant. It’s our first disappointing visit None of the help was really smiling or happy They boxed up the entire meal and we brought it home. Nothing was eaten.

    I would return for the steak and the service but Not on a holiday with a fixed menu. The appetizer was disgusting and the peas with dinner were overcooked and woody, I can’t imagine how that was possible but it was. Potatoes were lackluster as they appeared to have been made way ahead of time in large portions. The buffalo steak was awesome.

    Absolutely amazing Mothers Day experience. Our server, our food and the ambiance were lovely. Especially loved the a cappella women’s group and the string music.
