My wife and I went to celebrate my Birthday. We were well looked after by professional and personable staff all evening. My wife ordered steak, her favorite, and was not disappointed. I decided to go for Seafood, fabulous. The Service was excellent as well. We stayed and watched sports at the bar and enjoyed the evening fully. We also both... More

I was extremely impressed with every aspect of the place. From the staff to the food to the place itself. Everything was really fantastic, and I must say I got the best chicken wings that I've ever had in Colorado.

Best thing about this place is the location to the La Quinta Hotel. Decent food and beer and wine selection. Averages prices as well. Service was a little lacking and it looks like they could use more help.

Visited today, poor service was not greeted At all. Server acted like he was to busy to be nice. Asked about beers on tap having a taste to decide what was best was to much. He never came back for our order.

We ate here twice on our trip. I would not order the steak again - this is not a steakhouse. Burgers and salads are a better choice here. Very nice staff.

Stumbled into this place after a long walk...we were hungry and thirsty and we sure picked a great place to cure both! Their Cucumber Vodka Mule was so delicious and refreshing and their pork nachos were a meal in themselves. We also had a Blue and Pear steak salad that was crispy, delicious and so unique. While we were eating,... More

I stayed in the LaQuinta Inn on the outskirts of Loveland, Co in May, 2016. Not much around and there's no restaurant or bar in the hotel per se, so happened into the Backbone twice. It's adjacent to the LaQuinta. They have lots of beers apparently and can get a pretty boisterous crowd up at the bar. I went in... More
