"the ambience and decor were very nice. the brown palace hotel is not "an inexpensive" hotel by any stretch of the imagination and the Ship Tavern was their "low price" restaurant, so the prices might turn some aside. having said that, the food was very good, the service was very good. my major complaint was the fact that all 5 or 6 beers they had on tap (running an average of 9$ per glass) all tasted like a coors light. so that is what nets them only 3 stars."

"We had the shrimp cocktail, prime rib, sirloin, macarons and an apple stuffed pastry that was not on the menu. All delicious. The only complaint was the edges of my mid rare prime rib were well done. Those edges were still tasty so no complaint was registered. Our service was fabulous."

"We have been going to the Ship Tavern once or twice a year since we have moved to Denver 5 years ago. It is an interesting venue (we have even done the tour of the Brown Palace Hotel, excellent!). But this time, the service was slow, even though it was not busy. The server was negligent in talking about specials or asking us normal questions about what we wanted. The one sandwich I had was turkey club I could have purchased the lower end sliced turkey at King Sooper and it would have been better. the lettuce was wilted, tomatoes, oh well. It was abundant, not that great. But is was mostly about the service. We have always had excellent wait staff who are friendly, attentive and informative, even at the busiest time. This time it was a disappointment."

"Our first trip to the tavern was for Christmas Day dinner, 2015. The hotel was bustling, festive & lovely. The Tavern had a special menu, along with their regular tavern menu. We enjoyed it so much that we invited friends to join us for Easter. Again, the hotel was busy & festive, and the tavern cozy and inviting. There was no special menu, so we got to try the tavern menu. My Cosmo was very good, my wedge salad luscious & the lobster salad sandwich fresh and delicious! Good coffee & tasty macaroons topped off my meal. My husband & our friends ordered the Tavern burger, another the lobster sandwich, and we all got dessert. Perfect. How I wish I had gotten the name of our waiter. He was so very classy & welcoming! Great service, super cozy yet elegant surroundings, & really satisfying food. It's our new special occasion place to go!"

"We used to love Ship Tavern, having been many times over the years. Our last three visits have been very disappointing. The long time servers are still on their game but the kitchen is not what it once was. And the new servers are clueless, especially with regard to wine. The seafood chowder was all potato, very little seafood and the onion soup was lukewarm at best. We've been served fish & chips without the sides and received a lame 'oops!' when we pointed this out. Even discussing our disappointments with a manager was grudgingly handled with a surly attitude. This was once a go to restaurant for us and we are sad to see it drop off our list."

"We had not visited the Ships Tavern in over 5 years but were pleased to find the place as always, timeless and not overly pretentious. The steak special was very good, the burgers were satisfying and ample, and the salmon delicious as well. The cocktails were hearty, and served up with precision by our very accommodating waiter. Our 2 daughters were returning to out-of state colleges after spring break and we joined together here for relaxed outing. We will continue to keep Ships Tavern on our go-to list."

"The ribeye and strip steaks were tough and were not what is expected for the price."

"Usually eat occasional lunch here, but friend from New York was in town so we ate dinner. I had pan seared crab cakes with cole slaw side, my wife had vegetarian pizza, friend had tavern burger with sweet potato fries. Crab cakes seared perfectly; two cakes of perfect size; cole slaw not sweet, not tangy, just a nice light mayo with fresh cabbage and carrots. Pizza crust was superb and pie itself light cheese with blend of peppers. Burger a hefty size, mound of fries. Everyone really liked the food. Friend and I had pints of the "house" beer: Henry Joseph's lager, brewed by A.C. Golden (a Coors clone); tasty brew. Wife had white wine; generous pour. Server was excellent; attentive, knew the menu, didn't try to upsell. Professional servers -- these men have been there for a while. Not too pricey for Denver. Atmosphere is a major attraction for us. Old-style pub."

"It was restaurant week, so maybe the food was not up to it's normal standard, but we were disappointed in the prime rib dinner and lack luster dessert. It was the first time we had ever been there and we won't be back."

"Went to Ship Tavern for Restaurant Week in Denver. First of all, we did NOT experience any of the negative issues reported by others. Yes, it was noisy but it is also a tavern and expected. Wife had the Rock Mountain Trout and I had Prime Rib. We both had the Bibb Salad, which was served on a chilled plate and we both had the Black Bottom pie, also on a chilled plate. The entrees were both exceptional with the Prime Rib, served warm and prepared perfectly to medium-rare, reminding me of the old Colorado Mining Company and clearly one of the best I have experienced in Denver. Plenty of au jus and fresh horseradish! Our only complaint was that the hostess did not seat us when we arrived 10 minutes prior to our reservation. There were open tables and the one she did seat us at was open when we arrived. Otherwise a great experience and we will be back."

"We arrived eight minutes before our reservation and despite many open tables were told they would call us when ours was ready. We went to the nearby bar, Churchills, and had fun albeit expensive drinks. They called at five after our reservation and even came into the bar to look for us. Our server promptly asked us if we were ready to order versus introducing himself and discussing the menu. Just not what I expected out of a historic hotel dining experience. Guess I expected comparable to bar restaurant at Broadmoor but it's far from that. Denver has a great food scene so don't waste your money or time as we did."

"Ship Tavern at the Brown Palace is like taking a step back in time when quality food, service, and ambiance were required for places of dining excellence in Denver. The Tavern still has it all - and remains a unique place for lunch downtown. A place to not miss and to return to whenever you can!"
