Luke’s was established 23 years ago by entrepreneur Mike Lucas. After retiring from his own successful financial consulting firm, Mike traveled around the world on a three-year fly fishing expedition. When he returned to Denver to start a new career, he was disappointed to learn that several of the old reliable steak houses were out of business or under new management. This discovery set him on a journey to create a restaurant where you could get a truly great steak and enjoy an excellent casual dining experience. Thus, Luke’s a Steak Place was born.
As Luke’s celebrates 23 years of business in West Denver, we are still serving the same succulent grain-fed, wet aged, USDA choice beef steaks grilled to perfection. Our menu also includes: mouth-watering appetizers, our famous house salad, bleu cheese wedge salad, thick Colorado lamb chops, juicy pork tenderloin and incredible chicken dishes. Luke’s also features a surf & turf combination with the steak of your choice and lobster or scampi style prawns. The seafood menu changes often, as all of our fresh fish is brought in daily. The extensive wine list tempts even the most discriminating palate.
On October 15, 2012, Bob Meyer, formerly of Green Gables Country Club and Country Club at Castle Pines, returned from successfully running a country club in Northern California to be the new owner of Luke’s, A Steak Place. After a successful first couple of years, Bob has gained the like of both new and regular customers. His presence and personal touch to Luke’s has kept it going strong and has maintained a legacy. Furthermore, Bob’s experience in clubs and as director of catering for the NY Sheraton has helped expand Luke’s catering. Whether you are planning an extensive wedding for hundreds or an intimate affair for 50, we are here to help.
Luke’s also offers a semi-private party room perfectly suited for special occasions or business events. The room can accommodate up to 60 people. Our team will be happy to work with you to plan and design your next event with the menu of your choice for the evening’s fare.
“There is something very special about what Mike has built here at Luke’s over the last twenty years. Luke’s has a reputation for having food equal to any steakhouse in Denver but with Mike’s casual style. I want to keep with that tradition. My career has taken me from Midtown Manhattan to the outskirts of San Francisco but Denver is my home. I want to take that experience to add a new layer to Luke’s and instill my passion for food and service.”
