We dined the day before and in honor of Valentine's Day. Outstanding food and service. Expensive and worth it. The escargot appetizer has the.. best.. garlic butter. We enjoyed the tasted lobster bisque, served with a small glass of sherry to pour over. M'lady and I shared the 36oz. rib eye and still took some home. It was cooked to... More

Shanahan's is our favorite place to go for celebrations like birthdays, anniversaries and Valentines Day. The atmosphere, food and service are all top quality, and on the rare occasion something is not quite right they will go overboard to compensate. The atmosphere is very nice, without being stuffy and in the summers there is a nice outside patio with fireplace.... More

It was our 32nd anniversary. We want to treat ourselves to something special. Great food. We had the muscles plus a steak for each of us. Side dishes are huge. You will take food home with you. It is not cheap, but well worth the money that we spent. If you are a budget, this is probably not the place... More

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.
