Phantom Canyon serves up a great menu of bar classics such as bacon mac & cheese and pretzels with beer cheese. If you’re looking for a more substantial meal, there’s hearty pork chops and steaks. Wash down your meal one with one of their house-brewed beers. Phantom Canyon is also great for hosting gatherings. The historic building, built in 1901, features eight different event spaces that can host groups of various sizes. The coolest of these spaces is the billiards hall with 10 pool tables, two dart boards, and an outdoor space with fire pits.

9. Odyssey Gastropub

Colorado Springs, CO 80903
Phone: 1 (719) 999-5127

Odyssey Gastropub is one of those places where it’s hard to decide what to eat because everything sounds amazing. I’d suggest going with a group to share a couple of appetizers like the crispy Brussels sprouts and pork green chili cheese fries. Then for an entrée try a bulgogi bowl or an order of chicken & waffles. There’s also extensive beer and wine lists and during weekend brunch you can even build your own mimosa.
