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. In the summer, we have the best deck in all of Steamboat cozied up to the Yampa river with a very beautiful 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. We 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.

Think twice before going! I saw the many good reviews and don't understand how our experience could be so bad. I got sick from my meal. We went there for dinner after our ski instructor raved about it. It did not start out well when we were seated in a cold dark corner with a view of the backside of... More

I really wanted to like this place because of the concept but sadly was disappointed with the food. The atmosphere is cute though--an old house on the river! The server was very nice, and we didn't complain about our food, but it was just ok. The buffalo burger had a nice grilled flavor but the bun didn't seem fresh. The... More

Go during happy hour because the prices are more reasonable. My husband two drinks were 1/3 of the entire bill. No military discount. Menu variety is awesome and the alternative healthy choice are refreshing.

The Sweet Pea serves excellent cuisine at affordable prices. There is a nice variety of gluten free and vegetarian options, for those with restricted diets. The house converted into a restaurant had great ambiance and epitomized the local charm of Steamboat Springs. The staff was friendly and attentive. Their buffalo roast is superb!

We walked by this restaurant and decided to try it. The food was fresh and different. There were lots of menu options -- something for everyone from a vegetarian salad to buffalo. We will definitely go back to the Sweet Pea when we return to Steamboat!

On a Saturday night after Christmas, we went into town and a restaurant we wanted to go to was booked and suggested this new little restaurant. Much to our surprise, all 5 of us got a table. It's a little house on the river and not alot of room. The food had great presentation and tasted terrific. It just could... More

We're visiting Steamboat Springs for the first time and asked our concierge for recommendations for places with vegetarian options. Sweet Pea was one of the first places she listed. They had quite a few options for us, and the server even offered some off-menu possibilities when we mentioned our diet. The place is gorgeously situated along the river bank, and... More

It is well worth the wait for a table. This is a very popular place to eat, right beside the river. The food is excellent. I particularly like their farro salad. Very friendly staff. It is very busy and the food does take a while to come, but when it does it's very tasty.

The ambience of this restaurant is definitely not "ski resort". Its outside terrace is lovely since it's on the river and the inside is cozy, small, quiet, and funky. I loved my salad trifecta which is a plate with three salads of your choice. It was huge and delicious. Our server looked more like a ski bum but he was... More

This place is right on the Yampa River and some of those places come and go, but these folks emphasize the natural, the fresh and the local. We ate inside because it was raining, but the food, service and drinks were great. Yumbilicious fish special! Crates of fresh produce up front do enhance the perception of whole foods. We had...
