Great place to drop in for a quick and thorough clean up. The decor is classic barber shop and classic Steamboat. Gotta love the stuffed mountain lion! There are always several stylists available. I take my son here regularly, and they are very good with him. We've never had to wait more than 10 minutes for a cut.
Now called The Chief, the space was an older movie theater recently renovated to be a performance and cultural venue. Finally! The town is lucky to have the folks who rallied to make this happen. They have completed the first phase of renovation, and it's impressive. The space has a classic theater feel with rustic modern touches. Sound and lighting are professional. They host a wide variety of events. Check out the marquee on Lincoln Ave.
Exceptional hospital for a rural area. This nonprofit, community hospital has roots in the town's first hospital started by Doc Willet, a beloved and skilled doctor known to make house calls by sleigh in the winter. Today, the YVMC is fortunate to have many skilled and specialized medical professionals as well as community support for state of the art technology and programs. They rank among the top hospitals in Colorado for patient safety.
Perusing the amazing selection of annuals and perennials at Windemere is a must for green thumbs. They have varieties simply not found at "big box" greenhouses. It's the place to go when you want to splurge on a hanging basket or pot overflowing with gorgeous annuals. Their prices can be high, but they run good sales mid-late season.
CMC has great academic, recreation and community ed programs. They've added four-year degree programs, and their community ed. classes -- including yoga, pilates and Zumba -- are the best deal in town for Steamboat residents. Their new building is beautiful and overlooks the Yampa Valley.
I visited the Yampa Valley Express Lube on Tuesday May 28th, 2013. I arrived at about 3:10 and my car was in the facility by 3:15. As I exited the vehicle with my daughters I asked if they could vacuum the backseat floor area as well. I was told “no problem.” We proceeded to the waiting area. After waiting about 10 minutes a technician approached me and said I needed a new air filter. I agreed. The technician failed to mention that that would mean this service would take over an hour. Apparently they do not keep air filters in stock (!) and needed NAPA auto to deliver them on demand?! After waiting with other customers (one who had already been waiting over an hour as well and whose oil change never happened because the technicians couldn’t figure out what oil filter her BRAND NEW car needed- it didn’t need an oil filter by the way, just the employees racking up her tab) and watching the technicians stand around literally doing nothing (except talking to each other and on their cell phones) one finally went across the street and got the air filter. It took him less than five minutes. At this point it had been almost an hour, and I was now late getting my daughter to soccer practice. I expressed my dismay and frustration to the technician checking me out and when I finally got in the car the backseat floor area had NOT been vacuumed. I waited for over an hour for something that should take no more than 20 minutes and they couldn’t even vacuum my car!? As they stood around and socialized!? On top of it all my daughter was 20 minutes late to soccer and missed her team photo. I am NEVER late for activities or work, and felt that 45 minutes should’ve been more than enough time for an oil change. In fact 45 minutes would have been excessive and I waited for over an hour. Unacceptable. I do not plan on returning to this facility. I will wait until I am in the city and pay a fraction of the cost and spend the appropriate amount of time to get my oil changed. To top this all off I wrote this review as a private comment on their website and no one has responded. So public it will be. THIS PLACE IS HORRIBLE.
This is a fun store for kiddos next to Winona's. They have a great selection of games, models and novelty items. I found some fun stocking stuffers during the holidays last year. I stopped in again recently and noticed they are well-stocked for summer with kites, squirt guns and other outdoor games. They also have clothing for toddlers, baking decorations and unique-themed invitations and party supplies.
I made an appointment three weeks ago to have my tires changed. When I took my car in I expected that it would take about an hour. The person helping me told me that I could have my car back by the end of the day. My car was there half an hour after opening. He had the audacity to act like he was doing me a favor by getting it to me by the end of the day.
I'm sure you could go anywhere else in Steamboat to have your tires changed and receive better service.
Train your waitresses, train your bartender, and train your cooks!
Let me start with the first cocktail. I ordered a Vodka Press that came promptly but with no lime garnish. The waitress brought me the lime wedges later that looked like they were cut up a week earlier. I guess that is all one can expect with a four dollar drink. The next drink I ordered, after a very long wait trying to get the attention of the waitress, was a margarita. When the waitress set the drink in front of me she accidently spilled some of the drink on the table and into my lap. All she had to say was sorry and giggled then walk away. I was stuck there to clean myself and the table up with a lone paper napkin. I thought she could have at the very least offered to wipe the table up with the mess that she made. I later had to ask for more napkins.
The Meal: I ordered the rib eye cooked medium with baked potato and asparagus. When the order came the baked potato was just that, only the potato with no butter or sour cream. Also the baked potato came wrapped in tin foil that was cut with a knife on top to expose the potato. Right off, I noticed many small bits of metal shaving were in the meat of the potato from the tin foil. The waitress later brought me butter and sour cream half way into my meal. The rib eye was very tough and hard to chew. I'm not sure it was a rib eye at all for it had no marbling texture to speak of, it was not seasoned and had no flavor. Looked like a very cheap cut of meat to me. On a positive note, the steak was cooked to order, the asparagus on the other hand was over cooked and like eating mush.
The service was lacking to say the least. The waitress was young and lacked proper training to handle more than one task at a time. Empty glassed and dishes left piled on the table while the waitress made several trips to the kitchen empty handed.
As I mention above the first drink came promptly but absolutely no follow through with the entire meal except for the check. Seems that the waitress and The Tin Cup Grill's managements only interest is getting money for services barley rendered.
Needless to say I will NOT frequent the Tin Cup ever again.
There are a lot of good restaurants around Steamboat, but I always seem to find myself craving Noodles & More. The staff is friendly, the food is always delicious and the service is quick. Try the vermicelli bowls, pho or anything from the sushi menu!
Centrally located downtown and next to the bike path, Bud Werner Memorial library is a special stop for locals and visitors alike. Got some time to kill? Grab a latte from the library's cafe (currently operated by Mountain Brew) and head upstairs to peruse magazines in one of the libraries beautiful seating areas overlooking the Yampa River. There's plenty of desk space and WiFi if you need to get some work done. The children's section is great and will keep little ones busy with it's cool fish tank, story time and other activities. The library also hosts many informative speakers, films and other programs. Check the newspaper for upcoming events.
Great selection of organic/natural foods and goods and great downtown location. Their prices are competitive with the larger grocery stores, and I find their sales beat the larger grocers on many items. They have pre-made lunch items but no deli or espresso/drink bar. They bag and shelve bulk items. I love their dried mango for a snack. Very good selection of vitamins, natural remedies and body care products. Staff are very helpful.
We love Lynette! She has been washing and grooming my long-hair kitties for years. She was gentle and very good with my (now deceased) elderly kitty who hated being brushed. If she's good with felines, I'm sure she's great with pooches. I see all shapes and sizes of canines in her shop! Lynette's prices are reasonable, but bring your checkbook or cash - she does not take credit cards.
It's practically a hole in the wall, but that's all they need to sling some caffeine. Located right next to the Gondola entrance, you can get your favorite coffee drink for the ride up. They also have great breakfast and lunch sandwiches. The flow is fast and they serve Starbucks brand of coffee. Great little fueling station, vavoom.
Slopeside is the perfect name for this hoppin' ski grill. You can ski right up to it. There is often live music outside on a pleasant spring day. They have great pizza and burgers. It's a bit noisy inside, but that's because everyone is bragging about shredding some gnar. This is a great place to chill, right off the hill...
The Tugboat is Steamboat's mountain bar. It is one of the few hold outs from days gone by. The atmosphere reminds me of other great ski area watering holes, lots of wood and photo's from the past. You can still boogie down to live music throughout the year. It's a warm and fuzzy feel good place. Full bar menu keeps you nourished, check out this blast from the past.
When you are hanging out at Thunderhead Lodge at the top of the Gondola, you have a choice of three places to eat. You could go to the food court, or to the pricey Hazie's, or check out the Stoker Bar & Restaurant. This option is a good one. They have a great little bar, and a fairly large dining room. Chomp down on some gigantic nachos while looking out the bay windows which face the valley. This is a very busy place, come early for a good seat. They have some great breakfast plates as well.
If you are a sports nut, this is game central in Steamboat. They have over 50 televisions broadcasting most every game you may want to see. They have numerous beers on tap. Forget the pitcher of beer, try one of their gigantic beer towers, It's Rapunzel's favorite. They have some of the best wings in town, and if you like to sweat, get the extra hot. They even have a video arcade, so bring the family down for some fun.
