Sonny Lubick Steakhouse: Delicious Food with a Dash of CSU History

Sonny Lubick Steakhouse, in downtown Fort Collins, was created with the goal of building a locally-owned restaurant with a locally-inspired atmosphere and menu to carry on the great tradition of Fort Collins restaurants. Under the management of TR Shuttleworth, the Steakhouse is home to a warm ambiance, fantastic food, and an extensive, award-winning wine list. Diners can expect a “polished casual” environment and traditional steakhouse fare with a twist, including chef-inspired specialties, an elevated lounge menu, and gluten-free and vegetarian options.


In the same location as the historic Nico’s Catacombs, the Steakhouse pays homage to the winningest football coach in CSU history, Sonny Lubick. From 1993 to 2007, Lubick coached the Rams football team, and he is a much beloved member of the Fort Collins community.


The beautiful, subterraneum restaurant carries an elegant yet casual atmosphere and seeks to honor the legacy of Sonny Lubick. The quiet and intimate dining room is the perfect place for a romantic dinner or family meal. The football themed lounge hosts happy hour every day from 4:00-6:00 PM, and it is a lively spot for a draft beer, handcrafted cocktail, or glass of wine alongside live music (every Friday and Saturday night from 8:00-11:00 PM). The Coach’s Room, a banquet space, is the ideal place for hosting a large group event, dinner, or presentation. 


Whether choosing from the lounge menu or the dinner menu, patrons will find elegant, hand-crafted food made with high quality ingredients sourced locally whenever possible. How about a glass of wine to compliment the meal? Sonny Lubick Steakhouse has an extensive wine list and is recognized in Northern Colorado as having one of the best wine cellars.


Sonny Lubick Steakhouse sets itself apart from the competition with knowledgeable, friendly, and experienced staff. Whether diners are in the mood for prime rib or a ribeye chop, a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon or Sauvignon Blanc, the expert Steakhouse staff is always ready with a recommendation or helpful suggestion.
