Wow! This was the most fun restaurant we've been to, and I am not a fan of ESPN. I dread football season, and was dreading going to eat here, but I'm glad we did!First-- the food was good, not spectacular, but tasted fine. We all ate salads or burgers, nothing fancy. The dining room is FULL of TV's, all tuned to various sporting events. And, oh yeah, lounge/lazy boys chairs TO EAT IN! The main attraction is the game/arcade room. This place has air hockey, arcade games, shooting (basketball) contests, soccer, football, even golf games. I really am not a fan of sports, but I had a wonderful time. We spend 2 hours just playing games here. I recommend this restaurant...Read More

We didn't really eat here, but we bought cheesecakes here. These are to die for! They have a TON of varieties of cheesecakes, and other desserts, and you can order them in different sizes, by the slice, dine-in or to go.

The chocolate cheesecake and strawberry cheesecake were our favorites. They are a little pricey, but they are delicious.

Also, it seemed to be a local gathering spot in the evenings.

Quote:
The Denver Children's Museum was the best museum we've been to (for children). We went while they were having an Easter celebration. There was a rabbit handing out goodie bags, and you had to follow clues to get more 'goodies'. There's something for all ages to do here, we (my husband and I) had a wonderful time with our two boys. They have an infant/toddler play area, and a special little spot for those who can't crawl yet (or are learning!). Aside from the young children’s activities, they have a fire truck exhibit, arts and crafts, a grocery store where the kids can 'shop' and tons of other fun stuff. We easily spent 3 hours here, and could have stayed ...Read More
