Located on Denver's bustling 16th Street Mall, Willie G’s Seafood & Steaks is a quiet, classy oasis with an upscale-steakhouse atmosphere. But its lively patio, at the corner of 16th and Lawrence, was just made for people-watching, so settle in and eat, drink and gawk to your heart's content. Willie G’s is part of the Landry’s restaurant group, and the chain has locations in Houston, Galveston and Austin. The happy-hour dining menu is well worth stopping in for after an afternoon of shopping, with sautéed mussels, Kobe beef sliders and coconut-shrimp skewers, and the enormous dinner menu offers such entrees as live Maine lobster and prime rib alongside local fare including 1554 Black Ale-braised bison short ribs, herb-crusted Colorado trout, and cherrywood-smoked Colorado lamb chops. You'll want to leave room for at least a half-dozen cold-water oysters on the half-shell and a slice of Colorado Black Forest cake laced with Stranahan’s whiskey.
