Had a pleasant dinner at the Elways bar while staying at the hotel. Good service (especially when the fish tacos I ordered were inedibly spicy for me, and were immediately replaced.) Would return if I was in the area.

I've been to LOTS of steakhouses and this is my favorite. The steaks are GREAT, the drinks are GREAT, the Red Pepper Soup is amazing. Go with a date, go with your wife, go with friends. It's tremendous.

We took two co-workers for lunch last week as a thank you. The service was top-notch. Sophisticated atmosphere. I had the lobster BLT, which was delicious. Yes, it is a hotel restaurant but still excellent.

Just a random dinner at ELWAY’S turned out to be excellent as usual. Starting with wonderfully polite Valet and hostess staff, and followed by a superior server. The John Elway salad was great, followed by tasty steaks and sea bass. A special of the evening...More

They had seafood options. Don't recall everything on the menu - but we had a steak and the beef dish.
