Monarch Chophouse named OpenTable’s “Best Steak Restaurant” in the Colorado Mountains!

Monarch Casino’s flagship restaurant boasts top honors from Denver Westword and OpenTable!

OpenTable diners have spoken, naming the Monarch Chophouse as the “Best Steak Restaurant” in the Colorado Mountains! They’ve also voted the Monarch Chophouse as the “Most Romantic” in the Colorado Mountains and rated it as offering the “Best Ambiance” in Denver. 

This isn’t the first time that Monarch Casino’s flagship restaurant has taken home a distinguished award. In fact, Monarch Chophouse is the Denver Westword Readers’ Choice Best Of Denver “Steakhouse” and “Hotel Restaurant” too! 

Like Denver Westword readers, OpenTable diners, and TripAdvisor critics say that when you book a reservation at Black Hawk’s top-rated restaurant, you can expect a 5-star, award-winning experience!

The awards and recognition showcase the hard work and commitment to guests by Chef de Cuisine Greg Weadick, and Front-of-House Manager Daniel Hoctor and their teams, whose primary goal is to provide a VIP dining experience for guests from the moment they take their seat to the moment they leave.

If you miss out on booking a table, Monarch Casino’s Buffet is also a great option to satisfy your hunger after adrenaline-pumping action on the felt! Denver Westword Readers’ Choice Best Of Denver for “Bottomless Brunch Deal” has guests raving about the taste and variety of cuisine ranging from the rustic coast of New England, Far East Asia, Europe and comfort food flavors of home! Of course, don’t forget our dessert station which continues to offer guests indulgent gelato, perfect pies, scrumptious cookies and more!

There’s something for everyone at Monarch Casino Resort Spa. Between our newly-opened luxury spa featuring world-class amenities atop our mountain modern 23-story hotel, our Twenty-Four 7 restaurant dishing up mouthwatering favorites and refreshing Colorado craft beer from our brand new menu, and of course, our expanded gaming floor offering red hot no-limit gaming action including baccarat. Monarch Casino offers an unforgettable experience where our guests can relax, stay and play!

Monarch Casino Resort Spa is a short drive west of Denver through Colorado’s breathtaking high country.
