About this business

This establishment holds the oldest liquor license in the state, and it has been in operation for more than a century. Serving since 1893, this national historic landmark has seen countless wild west icons having a meal here, including the legendary Buffalo Bill Cody.

Try the Buffalo Bill Cocktail. They've been making it here for over 118 years.

Try the mountain oysters. Also, quail, gaming hen and duck. This place is extremely historic and rich in old west history.

Worst Experience in 37 years – Poor service, the food was really bad, and management has been unresponsive to my complaints. I had not been to the Buckhorn in over a year. My previous impression was that the food was better than average and the atmosphere great. Although pricey, it seemed like a good choice for entertaining an out of town guest. My recent visit left me feeling embarrassed to have brought our out of town guest to the Buckhorn. A fly landed and died in my son's half full pop. Not a big deal to the guy looking ... read more

Take a close look at the walls. There is more hung on them than trophy animals. This place is a veritable museum of Denver, Colorado and Western history.

Nice, Classic Walk past the projects and you are here! The decor is really great. Tons and tons of stuffed animals plastered to the wall. The upstairs bar is also great but the dining part has long waits (reservations are almost a must) and the food is so so. Yes, they do serve exotic foods such as buffalo and elk but I just had the steak. Good but not worth the $40. I do recommend this place if you are bringing out of town guests. They can get a good feel of Colorado but it's not an everyday establishment.

Can't cook When i went there for my birthday the rice was crunchy like it had been left out all day. The elk was really dry and the bird was burnt. If you want to get drunk there its an expensive bar but thats the only part of my dinner the i was happy with.
