    Went to celebrate a late Father’s Day dinner. Sat on the outdoor patio. It was a warm evening, but it got a little too warm where we sat so we moved ourselves back closer to the building to garner more shade. Maybe the tables closer to the edge of the balcony could be rearranged or some form of sunshade could be extended down when the sunsets? Of course would need to be able to see through it because of the amazing view. We loved our drinks, but the food was not the best. Certainly not worth the price, as we all thought we had had better.

    We were surprised that we couldn’t order off the regular menu and the brunch price was a sticker shock. We had to ask our waitress at least four times for the drink order to be delivered. What are the food was great we did not think it was worth the $46 a plate.

    Service was slow. 40 minutes to get our food and then the order was wrong. Then waited another ten minutes for the right food. Then was charged for the food that we didn’t wand that back and was wrong.

    The outdoor patio provides a beautiful view and is newly updated with a cover and lighting. The service is excellent. Thank you, Jen! I had the fish and chips. I’m not a fan of the cole slaw. It tasted like it had horse radish. The fish was a little mushy. The breakfast/brunch is much better.

    We drove through an hour of traffic to her to Golden from Erie. We called because we were going to be 5 minutes late. The person that answered said okay and didn’t even ask us who we were. Bad sign ; we must be the only reservation. Upon arrival, we realized that this is nothing morn than a less than average golf cafeteria. Poorly decorated, messy and empty. When I say empty, I mean that there’s a super large, very loud party behind some closed doors. We seriously stood at the messy podium/bar area for 10 minutes before we just walked right back out. I’d drop this account. The reviews on OpenTable do NOT reflect the restaurant and are actually completely misleading. I had a more accurate picture from Yelp. I look to Openable for accuracy. If that not there and it’s just a marketing engine, I may dismiss this app for future reference.

    This is the most amazing setting for a restaurant - definitely the best views in Golden. But - cold food (that was meant to be hot), cold coffee, no caddies on the tables so you had to wait forever for salt/pepper/etc. as your food got colder. Un-bussed tables, no spoons for coffee. Waitress was nice, but had too many tables to manage. Manager did not seem to be pitching in to help at all. Online menu is different from actual menu, so don't base meal choices on it. Just as Mark Twain said "Golf is a good walk spoiled", Schnepf's restaurant is a good view spoiled.

    It's basically a golf course restaurant. The food quality reflects that. It does have a very pretty view and the servers were friendly & competent. But the burger one member of our party had was cooked to death (reheated?) and I wondered the same thing about my chicken sandwich.

    I didn't know it when I made the reservation but this is a restaurant in the fossil trace golf course. They have a terrace that overlooks a beautiful vista. I highly recommend sitting outdoors for this view. It is stunning! The only reason why I put in a 4 star on food was that I ordered my Burger medium rare but a came out well done.

    Bad food and horrible service. Asked multiples times to be seated in one of the many open tables outside and we were complete ignored every time. My large party was more than ready to spend a ton of money and enjoy the drinks and view, but instead we had to leave because we were so poorly treated. Would never come again and would not recommend

    I ordered a bowl of green chili and asked if I could have a side of cole slaw......seeing it on the menu as a side with a burger. I suggested I would be paying extra for a side. She left asked the chef or manager and the person replied “NO”. That dish is not one that you can comfortably eat without a side!! Ridiculous!! PLEASE REPLY as I have been there with guests at least 18-12 times over Summer and Fall. I AM A GOOD CUSTOMER! Lavelle S. Arnold 303-981-8483

    Schnepf's RestaurantResponded on October 7, 2020Lavelle, Thank you for your input and thoughts. We should have done significantly more to better your experience. We have not in the past made it a policy to have coleslaw a side but as you said "it's on the menu" and could easily be a side for a price. I spoke with our chef and he has made it possible for our servers to modify upon request to have slaw as a side. Thank you again for your input, we are always looking to improve our guest experience.

    This place is a find! After our extremely pandemic-limited wedding at the Taj Mahal (we applied for a marriage license, signed the license, that was it), we came to Schnepf's and sat on the patio to enjoy the view. The manager bought us a bottle of bubbly and the waitress was very attentive and sweet. We enjoyed our food -- a watermelon caprese salad and an asparagus salad, both inventive, fresh and tasty. We'll be back for dinner.
