Hi Sammibean... thank you for the review. We really try to take all feedback seriously so we appreciate you letting us know your thoughts on our fries. When we first opened we actually "taste-tested" several types of fries and the thinner, 'shoestring' style was preferred for most. But it sounds like they're not your personal favorite. We are so glad to hear you like the burger selection however. We ran a "create your own burger" promotion last Fall and added something like 22 new variations to the menu. Hopefully we'll see you again so you can try a different combination.

“always great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2012

Big house is always a great place to eat. They have a bogo 1/2 off deal on apps all day long on Sundays for the game and the service is good. Food is yummy too!

“Best fries around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2011

I'd say this is a pretty typical burger place. The service was fine - not super friendly, but no problems. The atmosphere was fine. The value was so-so (~$9 for a burger/fries). But the fries were delicious (don't bother changing your order to onion rings - they were really not worth the extra $2, wish I'd gotten fries). Overall, I'd suggest this to people looking for good food, but it's probably not the best out there. Everything tasted good but I guess there was nothing special and the burgers were a little over-cooked for what we asked for.

Hey there from Big House Burgers. Thank you for taking the time to give an honest review of your experience at Big House. I'm sorry to hear your burgers didn't turn out quite like you had hoped. We really value your feedback and plan to work harder at refining our food & service until it's perfect. Sounds like our fries may have saved the day for you. Now THAT is something to rave about!

“Off the Beat and Path . . . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2011

This place isn't downtown or in the ski village . . . . it's off the beat and path for most Steamboat visitors . . . which maybe is one of the Other reasons I like this place!

It was the only place where we didn't have to wait for an hour to get a table!

This is a great place for families. Has a great kids menu and the adult menu, well . . . the flavors were incredible! Burgers, Chicken, Seafood, Salads . . . everything was great!

Kids even enjoyed custard cones and shakes for dessert.

We're so happy you found us! Yes... sometimes being west of town and out of the typical tourist areas has its benefits. Glad to hear the kids liked the custard cones.

“Better than I remember...two thumbs up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2010

Went to the Big house when it first opened and was not super impressed however a friend of mine told me a new chef has taken over and I should give it another chance. That being said I went to go check it out a week or so ago and she was right. The food is amazing and even the whole feel of the restaurant is different in a good way. You can tell that the chef who is there now really cares about the food/service he is putting out at this establishment. I would recommend this place to anyone, also noticed they redid the beer menu and has so many great choices. Will be back again and again.

We're very happy to hear about your review! I'm sure it's hard to put "two thumbs up" when you're biting into a huge burger... so thank you.
