Steamboat Resort’s Places to Eat 

Whatever culinary craving you have on the slopes, Steamboat Resort has you covered. From a gourmet lunch with Scandinavian flair, to casually delicious Mexican fare, to a wide range of choices at the new Food and Drink Hall in Steamboat Square, your tastebuds are sure to be satisfied. With 3,741 skiable acres spread across 182 trails at Steamboat Resort, you are sure to work up an appetite while on the slopes. 

Steamboat’s highest elevation dining option is Four Points Lodge, which sits at an impressive 9,716 feet on Storm Peak. Offering stunning valley views along with healthy lunch options featuring local ingredients in homemade salads, pastas, soups and hot-stone grilled entrees, Four Points Lodge is a scenically delicious option. Located on the lower level is Four Points Express which provides grab-and-go sandwiches, soups, snacks and more, all of which can be enjoyed with quite the view from Four Points’ infamous on-snow Adirondack chairs.

If sunshine is what you are chasing, Rendezvous Lodge located halfway down High Noon will offer tasty bites on the “sunny side” of the mountain. With Asian specialties, burgers, pizzas, salads and soups, Rendezvous Food Court has great culinary choices with more seating capacity. Located outdoors is the popular Umbrella Bar on the main level deck and upstairs you will find The Outpost Saloon on the third level for a quick drink as well. Also within Rendezvous Lodge and located on the lower level is Ragnar’s, the most gourmet lunch option you will find at Steamboat Resort. Featuring seafood, game and beef specials, Ragnar’s boasts Scandinavian flair with an atmosphere reminiscent to the Norwegian culture that had a presence in Steamboat in the early 1900s.

More centrally located and the most accessible on-mountain option at the top of the Steamboat Gondola is Thunderhead Lodge, which features a food court, Red’s Bar, the Stoker Bar and Restaurant as well as Gondola Joe’s Express just inside the front doors. While many skiers and riders enjoy Thunderhead Lodge, it is also accessible to foot passengers who are simply looking to have lunch with a view. The food court boasts views of the mountain and valley, and features hearty entrees, salads, pizza, burgers, soups and everything in between. Red’s Bar is located on the third floor, along with the food court, while the Stoker Bar and Restaurant sits on the main level with impressive valley views. For a quick bite on-the-go, Gondola Joe’s Express is a perfect stop for morning coffee with a pastry or an afternoon sweet treat. 

Taco Beast Dining

And if you’re looking to literally eat on the slopes, make sure to check out Steamboat Resort’s Taco Beast that is certainly taking the idea of a food truck to new levels. A roaming, on-mountain snowcat that serves four types of trail tacos, Mexican street corn along with Mexican-style sodas and beer, the Taco Beast has a casually fun and eclectic vibe that is hard to beat.

For those skiers and riders who prefer to pack their own food, several on-mountain locations offer a fantastic spot for a picnic. The Broadway benches, located about halfway down the family-friendly trail, offer gorgeous valley views with nothing but national forest below. Or perhaps a picnic with a teepee sounds fun for your family, which you can find about halfway down another very family-friendly trail: Why Not. Outside of Four Points Lodge is also another nice stopping point with picnic tables and Adirondack chairs that have arguably the best dining views on the mountain.

While on-mountain options are numerous, so too are the many culinary delights at the base area in Steamboat Square. Steamboat Resort’s newest offering is The Range Food and Drink Hall with four distinct flavor profiles tied to some of Steamboat’s favorite trails. From pizza at Pioneer Pies to a cozy bowl of ramen at Sunshine Bowl to street tacos at Twister Tacos to sandwiches and salads at Why Not Sandwich Shop, The Range is a cashless facility and QR-code ordering with service and a bar on each level. Also part of The Range is Stranahan’s Barrel Dining where you can enjoy a chef-curated four course menu with a flight of Stranahan’s whiskey, all from the comforts of a custom cedar whiskey barrel. Obviously a fun choice after a day of skiing or riding Steamboat Resort, these cedar barrels feature beautiful mountain views in addition to a one-of-a-kind tasting experience.

Timber & Torch is another great option in Steamboat Square, offering a Steamboat-themed menu with items such as the Ski Town, U.S.A.® Burger along with a fittingly mountain-inspired atmosphere. On the outside deck just off the slopes is T&T Grill, providing a fun and casual outdoor setting with sandwiches, soups, snacks and a full bar. Also just off the slopes and with outdoor seating is Routtie’s Barbecue in Torian Plum Plaza where you will find low and slow pecan-smoked Colorado meats served with a secret barbeque sauce.

Offering a wide array of culinary delights, Steamboat Resort has your tastebuds covered. Whether it be on-mountain, lodge-style dining, a simple picnic with a view, a unique tasting dinner in a whiskey barrel or a quick, on-the-go bite to allow for more vertical feet in your ski day, dining options are abound at Steamboat Resort.
