Arapahoe serves great breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Pub is a treat if you can handle the wait, especially burger night's. Pancake's are huge. Yummy bloody mary's with candied bacon. Brandon took great care of us.

We stopped here for lunch on our way back to Denver. We didn't know too much about the restaurant. A good sign was the # of cars in the parking lot. We had excellent sandwiches- a Club sandwich and a Tuna Melt. Both were very...More

Unfortunately we do not have heaters on the patio. If the sun is out it is usually warm enough to eat outside by about 9.
