Family owned. Community focused. The Lazy Dog was born out of our passion for the beautiful state of Colorado and the fun-loving people that live here. It has always been our goal to bring people together and, for us and our family, the most natural way to do that is with great food, delicious drinks, and a whole lot of groovy conversation. We didn’t set out to create a restaurant that would forever change the culinary world, we set out to create a restaurant that promotes a community atmosphere and encourages good times.

If it's not fresh, it's not the best. We know that we wouldn’t serve our family food that wasn’t hot off the grill and when you come to The Lazy Dog, you’re family. For over 22 years, we’ve been serving up the most appetizing, drool-inducing, head-turning, stomach-yearning plates and we have no plans of stopping any time soon. It’s no wonder why we’ve earned “Best of” in every publication year after year.
Everyone knows that all legendary get-togethers start off with great libations. Whether you're looking for some local flavor out of the many Colorado breweries we've partnered up with or you’re looking for an extravagant cocktail to get the night going, we’ve got something for everyone. Don’t see it on the menu? Just ask one of our experienced bartenders and they’ll mix it up faster than you can say “Belly Up!”
Good times. Good people. Great food. That’s what we’re about and we’re sure you’ll agree. Come by and enjoy some of the best live music Colorado has to offer, reserve a room for your next party or event, or just swing by to meet some friends. We can’t promise much in this world but we can promise that we’ll do everything we can to make sure you have the best day or exciting
Our mantra has always been, “Our restaurant is only as good as the neighborhood that it’s in”. That’s why, for us, community is our number one priority. Whether it is as simple as bringing in great local and regional bands to rock the house on a beautiful Saturday night, or as important as serving up warm food to the homeless on Christmas - we are there every step of the way. The Lazy Dog was founded on our love for Colorado and this state has given us a lot so we consistently do our best to return the favor.
