Denver's Great Northern Tavern offers incredible food, wonderful atmo, surprising prices

The Great Northern Tavern in southeast Denver (Centennial, CO, really) is and has always been an absolute pleasure. It's exterior is unique without being flashy. Walking through the revolving door, you're struck by the upscale wooden interior, giving a distinct young executive feel to the bar area near the front, with a long view into the dining area and the glass doors lining the entire eastern side of the restaurant leading to the expansive umbrella'd porch that always seems to catch a nice breeze.

The service staff are sharp and on-point, attentive to low drinks and requests for the bill. My most recent trip, I ordered the meatloaf with goat cheese, green beans on mashed potatoes. Sounds simple, but they made it a symphony with a clean and sharp presentation befitting their service. They were quick but not overbearing, the food was absolutely delicious, they boxed up what I had left over for me and brought me my bill. 

You'd think the quality of food, service and atmo would warrant a bill of $20 or higher, easy, but it was incredibly affordable and makes me want to recommend the place to everyone, not to mention going back, myself. I haven't visited every place in the southeast Denver metro area, but I don't think I'll find a better place than this.
