  • Best Local Coffee
    At our Rouze Mountain Home we are happy to provide a locally roasted coffee that we love. It is roasted by Steamboat Springs Coffee & Tea Company. We hope you like it as much as we do and if you want to enjoy it when you get back home please check out their website. John Kuhn the owner is great to work with and always willing to mail his freshly roasted coffee to your home. You can alway drop by the Drunken Onion and pick up a bag to take home.

  • Drunken Onion
    When we have just arrived in Steamboat and need to feed the family and friends, we call or drop by the Drunken Onion. They have great preprepared meals. You can also buy more Steamboat Springs Coffee & Tea Company coffee.
    685 Marketplace Plaza #5 (next to the movie theatre)
  • Slopeside Grill
    This is the best apres ski restaurant and bar on the mountain. Great bar atmosphere and great food that you can literally ski in / ski out. Located down at the bottom of the Right-O-Way run. From the gondola base look up and left. On warm days, sitting outside and watch you kids ski by.
    1855 Ski Time Square
  • Bear River Bar & Grill
    This is the most convenient apres ski BAR on the mountain. Directly across from the gondola. This huge outside decked bar is where you will wait for your group to gather at the end of each day. A perfect view of the Lil Rodeo Terrain Park and Halfpipe or a view of the ski school and bunny slopes. They have a grill and inside seating, but the tent outside usually has live music playing in front of the Billy Kid statue. You have to ask someone to take your picture in front of his statue.
    Locate in the heart of Gondola Square.
  • Mountain Brew
    Local friendly coffee house with great cakes, breads, muffins, quiche and breakfast sandwiches. A charming little old house on Oak Street with wifi and a free newspaper. DO NOT go to Starbucks while you are in Steamboat. You will love Mountain Brew.
    427 Oak Street. (downtown)
  • Laundry
    Dinner - This is a neat place to go for a nice adult evening. The kids will not appreciate it. The building is the old Steamboat Laundry. The food is fun and interesting with homemade cheeses and locally cured meats. I've been three times. The bar is great and the bartenders will really take care of you with special drinks. Call ahead, it is a popular place.
    127  11th St. (Next door to Creekside Cafe)
  • Aurum
    Lunch & Dinner - Okay, this has one of the best locations on Yampa Street and may become one of our new favorites for “a little nicer” SS restaurant. We much prefer it over CV Bistro or Low Country. New ownership and new name (Use to be Sweetwater), but don’t hold that against them. Everything is new and improved. This is a great venue for an event. With a lower deck with bands and an upper deck patio overlooking the river and perfect for a reception or event. This is a neat place to go for happy hour too. 811 Yampa Street
  • Harwigs
    Dinner - Local adult favorite. Elegant atmosphere and menu. Best bartender in town and nice happy hour if your a wine drinker. We also discovered that this would be a great event venue with a couple of private dining options. This might match Cafe Diva. Located downtown.
    911 Lincoln Ave
  • Creekside Cafe & Grill
    Breakfast & Lunch - great atmosphere with outdoor seating next to a creek. Breakfast is great with homemade breads. The hamburgers look great and are huge. This is the most popular weekend brunch time place. Call for a reservation if you can plan that far ahead. Sit outside if the weather allows.
    131  11th St. (1 block off Lincoln)
  • Freshies
    Breakfast & Lunch - Great food and a typical Steamboat friendly local atmosphere. This is our favorite for breakfast. The food is great and you won’t have to wait as long as Creekside or Wynona’s. We love it. Great everything with healthy choices, if your into that thing! Lunch is great too.
    595 South Lincoln Ave. (between Downtown and Mtn
  • Wynona's
    Breakfast - Lunch and Dinner
    What can I say, another great local friendly place. Get there early, it is small and people will wait. GIANT Cinnamon Rolls. They have some unique breakfast items and sandwiches are great too. Maybe there is a reason people wait for Wynona’s.
    617 Lincoln Ave. (Downtown)
  • Fiesta Jalisco (midmountain) or Vaqueros (downtown)
    Lunch and Dinner
    This is best Mexican food in town. Located a block up the street from Starbucks midway between the mountain and downtown. Their sister restaurant is Vaqueros located downtown on Lincoln and seems to be the same food.
    445 Anglers Drive
  • Steamboat Smokehouse BBQ
    Lunch and Dinner
    Very good BBQ and great chopped beef sliders. I am told that the owners have mixed the BBQ of TX, NC, TN influences. You get to choose between savory or vinegar sauce (that makes sense if you truly like BBQ). It is right downtown with the big pink pig out front.
    912 Lincoln Ave.
  • Back Country Province
    Great deli sandwiches. Delicious fresh bread. I loved the sandwich called “The Grand”.
    635 South Lincoln Ave. (Downtown 2nd level of retail center)
  • Mambo Italiano
    Great for dinner. My favorite Italian. Outdoor bar and seating in Summer and Fall.  They have live music some nights. Good brick oven pizza and all other italian dishes as well. Wine list. Friendly customer service and a great atmosphere.
    521 Lincoln Ave.
  • Mahogany Ridge Brewery & Grill
    Great happy hours and eclectic menu. Great happy hour with unique tapas. They offer many unique brews. I recommend the brew sampler to help you try some new beers and decide what you like. The food is great and the atmosphere is worth the visit. Sit at the bar and talk to the locals.
    435 Lincoln Ave.
  • Sake2U
    One of the best locations on the river (use to be The Boathouse). The Sake2me on the mountain has moved with good sushi just like you get in the larger cities. The bar and restaurant hasn't changed much so it is a great place to meet and socialize and has more than just sushi. Still the same great place to have a drink and a perfect place to watch the river.
    609 Yampa
  • Carl's Tavern
    May be the best bar in town. It has a sports bar/restaurants feel and it is great. I nice menu and huge bar with lots of big screen TV’s. An exciting atmosphere and a great menu. Better than average wings. Well behaved dogs tied to every tree on the sidewalk. You will love it. This is where people meet after most of the city events. In the summer, the Farmer's Market is right outside of Carl's.
    700 Yampa (7th & Yampa)
  • Bistro C.V.
    Good food and nice (the other posh restaurant) atmosphere, but more for people trying to get a taste of Dallas or Denver. I would suggest it for adults only based on white table clothes and prices. Eclectic menu that is fun and most people rate it as one of Steamboat's best restaurants. I haven't been back, but that's just me. When I’m in SS, I prefer casual and eating outside. Bistro C.V. could be located in Uptown Dallas.
    345 Lincoln Ave.
  • Cafe` Diva
    One of the few posh, adult restaurants considered Steamboat's fine dine. We hear that is is excellent, but have not tried it. It is on our list but we are generally more casual. I list it in case you are looking for a nice quiet evening.
    1855 Ski Time Square
  • E3 Chophouse
    Location, location location. Sits right on the Yampa. Eat outside if you can. You cannot beat the river view. Nice steakhouse with a comfortable atmosphere. Sunday night has a special. It sits just across from Carl's.
    701 Yampa
  • Cantina
    Casual and very average Mexican food, but specifically a great specials on Taco Tuesday. Good local bar right downtown.
    818 Lincoln Ave
  • The Butcherknife Brewery
    This is a great local brewery and not a restaurant. You can sample the beers in 2oz, 5oz or a pint. The view of the mountains is great and everyone brings their dog. If your tired of eating and just want to sit in the open air and drink a beer with your and everyone else dog, this is the place. Just a couple block up Elk River Rd off Lincoln. Turn right at the light on “The Curve”.
    2875 Elk River Road
  • The Backdoor Grill
    This is a great casual old fashion burger and sandwich place. You can watch the games downstairs or upstairs of this old house. They have a nice porch for outdoor seating that opens on to Oak St. They did have a 2for special on Tuesdays. Good burger and great onion rings and fries.
    825 Oak Street
  • Cugino‚Äôs Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant
    Okay, this a first for me. Cugino’s has new ownership. I had a lunch meeting their this fall and the owner was such a nice guy and the food and service were so good, I am putting them back on my recommendation list. It is a great location and they have added a nice outdoor eating for warm weather. Years ago, Cugino’s was the best family pizzeria in town located in the old house on Oak (now The Backdoor Grill). After experiencing the worst service, longest wait for food and an embedded tip (they said infant made 6), I swore “never again”. Well the new owner is doing a great job and I predict will bring Cugino’s back to greatness. Good place to take the family. I’m giving them a 2nd chance and my recommendation.
    41 8th Street (corner of 8th & Yampa)
  • Low Country Kichen
    Owner is same as Bistro C.V. and for the same target audience. Southern specialties in the mountains such as Shrimp & Grits, Jambalaya or Fried Chicken all at resort prices. The food and atmosphere is good, but after all it is tiny fried chicken. The best thing we had was the side of corn bread. Our group was split. Some liked it and others were disappointed. They have a nice bar and it is a way to get away from a kid atmosphere. This does not make our favorites list.
