    It took 30 minutes to get drinks and an hour to get food. That is way too long for a business lunch.

    Reservations easy to make. Seated on time. Anthony our server was attentive without being overly in our space or face. Meal was very good. VERY much like the simplicity but variety of the menu. Genuinely appreciate the classic offerings that have stood the test of time. Ship Tavern is a Denver institution that “fits” perfectly in style and substance with the Brown Palace. PLEASE keep it so. Thanks

    This was highly disappointing. Had good reviews and a great reputation. The location and vibe is cool. Food was substandard and highly limited. $52 for a flank steak is highway robbery. French onion soup was average at best. And the fish and chips weere way too greasy.

    The meal was good, the old fashioned drink was a bit sweet. Would like to see more scratch cocktails.

    We came in after a long stint at the Denver Botanic Gatdens. Our meal was delicious and beautifully presented. Our server Anthony was a delight throughout our relaxed afternoon stay.
