Cavalryman Steakhouse recognized again as local’s choice
Laramie’s oldest and most historic restaurant voted Best Steak in Laramie Boomerang Local’s Choice Awards
Cavalryman Steakhouse was recognized today as the Local’s Choice for Best Steak in Laramie. Cavalryman Steakhouse is a multi-year winner of the award, as well as winning Best Dining Experience, Best Seafood and Best Waitress in prior years.
“We work hard to locate and procure the best local and regional beef in order to properly represent Wyoming at one of its last great steakhouses,” said restaurant general manager, Brennan Alberts. “We’re pleased that those efforts are being noticed.”
The Laramie Boomerang Local’s Choice Awards are in their fourth year. The awards are made based on the results of thousands of votes cast by Laramie and Albany County citizens, and are widely used as a guide for visitors and tourists to the region.
About Cavalryman Steakhouse
Cavalryman Steakhouse is located on the grounds of historic Fort Sanders, which was constructed in July of 1866 to protect the Overland and Lodgepole Creek emigrant routes, the Denver-Salt Lake City stage route, and the construction crews for the transcontinental railroad. The property includes the remnants of a 9-hole golf course, pro shop and other buildings from the original Laramie Country Club. The Cavalryman is housed in the historic clubhouse, which was built in 1925.
Robert and Betty Gerard founded the Cavalryman on March 1, 1970 in the old Laramie Country Clubhouse located near Fort Sanders south of Laramie just past the county fairgrounds. From 1975 to 2005 the restaurant was cultivated by Marion Griffin, a local entrepreneur, and gained national recognition as an iconic Wyoming steakhouse. In 2006, a group of investors purchased the restaurant. In 2013, local partner Blue Sky Group Inc., attained majority control and commenced recovering the restaurant’s local and regional legacy.
