Last Saturday we had a family dinner at Shanahans. We were celebrating my son's 19th birthday and had looked forward to a nice evening. We had a reservation for 7:00 but weren't seated until 7:50!!!! They gave excuses that other parties were slow to finish but my impression is that they were poorly managed. The person seating us said the... More

Great staff, great steak, son said best filet mignon ever. Husband loved his and I loved my lamb chops and asparagus. Best thing... THE CRAB CAKES!!! Will be very hard to top, so much crab meat, so little breading. And to top it all, I held Michael Shanahan's 1998 Lombardi Trophy. It's pricy, but you know the saying... you get... More

My brother and I come to Denver every year on business. We love to eat and we are always looking for a great place for steak. Denver has many options when it comes to steak and we have tried many establishments over the years. After some due diligence and research, we decided to try Shanahan's this year. It is definitely...

My family and I went to Shanahan's to celebrate three December Birthdays. We were a party of 7 people. Most of the food was not good. We were served cold au-grautin potatoes, and when we sent them back, they still came back cold. The beef filet was over salty and a bit over done. The swordfish was also overdone. We... More

Great bar and wonderful vibe. Happy hour gets very busy so be there when the restaurant opens at 4:00. The bartenders are first-rate! No, this is not an inexpensive place, but the food is excellent and portions are generous. So, actually Shanahans is a good value. Highly recommend.

Excellent atmosphere, excellent food, excellent wine and the service was great! My wife and I split a 12 oz. fillet and enjoyed a side of creamed spinach. The William Hill Cab was delightful.

Great food and wine list, excellent service. Nice place for Christmas Eve for our little family. We had a nice booth by the fireplace. We were there early (like 6ish), we were seated right away, we had an attentive waiter. Couldn't have been nicer. We were not rushed even though they had a HUGE crowd waiting by the time we... More

It's the holiday season so that means it's busy and tons of corporate parties going on here but given the popularity the staff seem to always do a good job. Seafood tower appetizer is good for a big party, great cuts of beef and a good selection of seafood. I opted for the swordfish special since they removed the Steak... More

Hmm, this place is fantastic!!!! I've been multiple times and have enjoyed it every time. The food is delicious, cooked right every time and the menu has many great options. The steaks are, by far the best steaks around. The staff is average, you would hope a bit more friendlier, with the price your paying. It's a bit pricey, but... More
