Stopped in for breakfast while visiting Steamboat Springs, great service, food and atmosphere. Large and varied menu, my husband said it was the best omlet he ever had!

“The Real Deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

A little hole in the wall and definitely a locals spot. But what a place! Quite a breakfast array. Nothing fancy. House made corned beef hash was awesome. Service was quick, food was wonderful and prices decent.

“Good breakfast, waffles, biscuits and gravy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Everyone serves Belgian waffles these days, so if you're looking for a good, old school thin (American?) waffle, try the shack, they have not disappointed yet.

“BEST Breakfast in the Boat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We ate breakfast at several places and all of them were good...but the Shack was THE BEST!! The staff is amazing and fun and friendly. You can tell they are having fun at work! The food was served SO quickly! Coffee was delicious but the food was PERFECT!! I also had one of the best mimosas I've ever had there. An absolutely perfect start to a perfect day!

“Rushed service and undercooked food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

I wanted to like this place after reading the good reviews, but unfortunately my experience eating here wasn't up to par. The biggest let-down was that they seemed to be so busy, that our waitress hurriedly rushed around and spent barely any time attending to our table and the food was undercooked (hash browns especially). The worst part was when another lady stopped at our table (less than 10 min. after getting our food) and asked if she could take my plate, which was still 1/2 full with food that I was eating. Not relaxing and didn't feel like they valued the customers that were dining there.
