“What's better than breakfast beside a babbling brook? That's what you'll get at Creekside, which is located downtown right next to Soda Creek. It will obviously only babble in the summer, but this spot is a must-hit if you love breakfasts done right.”

“You can't go wrong for lunch or brunch here at this local's favorite spot. Be forewarned, there may be a wait, but it's worth it. Their sweet potato fries with BBQ are amazing! They are located in between the mountain and downtown Steamboat. ”

“The perfect place to go after a day on the slopes in the winter or take the family on a warm summer day. In the summer, there is a creek at the base for the kids to play in. At Slopeside they typically have corn hole set up out on the grass for people to enjoy while they have a drink. ”

Brewery

“Mahogany has a microbrewery located inside the restaurant with some fantastic beers. While some of their beers are seasonal I always grab a Charlies Cherry if they have it on tap! The menu has a variety on it the, most interesting, being that they have a “Dipping Entree” menu. The Dipping Entrees let you select a sauce to dip your meal in. Its amazing and some of my favorite entrees are the Tandoori Spiced Yellowfin Tuna and the Colorado Natural Filet Mignon. Each entree comes with 2 suggested dips however you can always change them up. I also order the Twisted Pretzel appetizer every time! $1 Happy Hour Menu is hard to beat. From 4-5:30 they have a list of $1 Tapas. Mahogany opens at 4:00 PM and if you want to dine in the dining section be sure to make a reservation!”

Place to shop
“I love this ski shop. It is really an outdoor store that has everything you need need for every season. I rented my kids skis from them from the time they were 2 years old. They also have great clothes that aren't just for outdoor activities. Check them out on the corner of US40 and Pine Grove Road.”

Bar
“Located downtown Steamboat, Live music 7 days a week. Bands start at 10pm. If you really want to party your butts off, this is the place. Look them up online to see what kind of band is playing that night, cover is usually $5-10 bucks. Late night food includes hotdogs and chips, but no other food.”
