Large group, ordered the Prime Rib, warm but not hot, in a plate of consomme, vegetables had been steamed sometime in the past, no sides are available any longer, the garlic Mash Potatoes are gone. Ask for fresh horseradish, not available but they had a jar... More

Have eaten here for years & years. Stopped in after long drive today while staying at the hotel. Food was pretty good. Service was "I would rather be elsewhere" attitude. The final indignation was "We are out of Guinness." How can an "upscale" bar be out of beer? Who manages this bar? Not impressed Brown Palace!

We stopped by the Browns Hotel Ship Tavern in mid afternoon for a snack and drinks, mostly because I wanted to see this historic old hotel. The hotel lobby was awesome - wished I could have stayed there! While the Ship Tavern had lovely, there was little in the way of afternoon snacks, Still happy that i got to visit... More

I have been eating here once a year for over ten years and the prime rib was the best in town. Tonight it was dry and medium rare when I asked for rare. I think for $38 it should have been top notch. The mashed potatoes and vegetables were excellent and the truffle french fries were very good although they... More

Our waiter was friendly, professional and on top of his game. The filet of beef and the Scottish salmon were outstanding. The atmosphere was perfect....could not have asked for a better dinner.
