The Fort is located just Southwest Denver, just 2 miles south of Morrison, Colorado, in “Red Rocks” Country. It’s a beautiful drive into our foothills, just off Highway 285 and Highway 8. It’s only a 10-25 minute drive from most neighborhoods in and surrounding Denver.
The Fort is a full scale adobe replica of a famous 19th century fur trading fort. Our menu is inspired by the Trappers, traders and American Indian recipes of that era, and we’re known as “New Foods of the Old West”. The Fort sells more buffalo entrees than any other independent restaurant, and is known for our game meats, seafood, vegetarian options, and home made desserts. The Fort has an extensive wine selection and has earned the Wine Spectator Award each year for over ten years.
One of America’s Most Scenic Restaurants!
The Fort has been featured in local and national publications such as the New York Times, Sunset, Bon Appetit, Modern Maturity, 5280 Magazine, Plate Magazine, Rocky Mountain News and Westword. In February 2008 The Fort was featured on the Today Show with Al Roker.
The Fort has won the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for the 7th consecutive year.
