Description: Sweet Pea is a quaint little restaurant located in Downtown Steamboat Springs on Yampa Street. We specialize in farm to table cuisine and support local farming efforts. Seasonally we host the most beautiful water side deck in all of Steamboat cozied up to the Yampa river with an ancient Gypsy Willow tree covering the deck. In the winter, we have inside seating and a cozy fire to keep you warm. Our menu speaks for itself but it is incredibly delicious and healthy. It is mostly all home made dishes that use ingredients from local and humane farms. We take reservations and are very family friendly. While serving both lunch and dinner we also have a happy hour from 3-6pm where we have $5 salads, $5 Cocktails, $5 off sandwiches, appetizers and tacos, $3 off wine and $2 off beer.

You can sit outside overlooking the rushing River below. Just a perfect location. The food is all home-made, no short cuts. I had the mezze plate with the best hummus I have ever eaten. We only had appetizers but the burgers and other dishes looked delicious. Go for happy hour and enjoy $5 speciality cocktails. Definitely plan a visit to... More

Great location right on the river which we were looking for. Food was mediocre at best ( fish tacos) and so was the service. Having said that I will go back there just for the beautiful setting right on the Yampa River.

Upscale food with outside dining on the Yampa river. There is also inside seating. A small restaurant in the heart of downtown Steamboat. Parking is wherever you can find a spot. A block or two off the main road through town, the location of several other restaurants on the river. We enjoyed the ambiance and the river rushing by. Professional... More

Kind of feel weird eating here if your not a vegetarian or a vegan....kale lovers only please! The Mama Little Yellow Pils was delicious. Patio was perfectly cool and felt natural, great shade provided by trees.

Same more expensive price range as everywhere else in Steamboat...but totally worth it. Great, friendly, knowledgeable staff. Really, really delicious food and drinks. The outdoor seating right on the Yampa river, and the bar is awesome.

We arrived at Sweet Pea for Happy Hour and were able to get a table outside right by the river. We enjoyed drinks and appetizers till 5:30 when dinner was starting to be served. We each had a different salad (the two we had were delicious) and had the Bison short ribs for our meal. The bison dish was one... More

At first glance this little restaurant looks like your average small town, mom and pop, quaint little neighborhood joint. The foods I had tonight were the delicacies of a 5 star, top notch, big city restaurant. Even after reading the menu nailed to the tree along the sidewalk at the front entrance, I never expected to eat anything like what... More

While exploring downtown Steamboat Springs yesterday we decided to stop at Sweet Pea for lunch. We were seated at a lovely table on the patio overlooking the river. The restaurant was very busy but we were immediately greeted by Cassidy who introduced herself and took our drink orders. I decided to have the salad trio (Pea, Potato and Beet) which... More

After a morning of shopping and site seeing we checked out several riverside cafes and decided to try Sweet Pea Cafe. What a gem. Fantastic cocktails and the service was great. The bacon and brie sandwich is a new favorite. They have a wonderful Golden potato salad with bacon, lemon, chives...... Oh my holy yummy. Garlic French fries were crunchy... More
