Western BBQ Buffet was very enjoyable. Everything you could expect for a BBQ dinner and more. Band was excellent as well. We had a person who had torn her ACL that morning and they were very accommodating.

I’ve lived in Steamboat for almost 20 years now, and this was perhaps the worst meal and experience that I’ve had on the mountain. To start, our server was terrible. He didn’t say a word when he placed the wine/drink list at the table, and...More

The Western BBQ is a buffet at the top of the gondola. The food was decent without being great. However, to be fair, it was as advertised. The prime rib was well cooked, a really nice medium rare, and was tasty. The baby back ribs...More

Unfortunately, after nine years, we made our last Western BBQ visit tonight. The staff is still friendly (as everyone is in Steamboat), but it's just not SunDog, and the food that we have always struggled with, was even more limited.

Great Western Buffet, good clean family fun, and country music... what more could you ask for from the Cowboy Ski Capital of the world? An easy ride up the gondola at sunset with breathtaking views of the Yampa Valley, drops you off in the Thunderhead...More

I decided to join some of my ski club members for dinner atop the mountain for a BBQ Buffet experience. The sight was spectacular, but the food was so so. For $45, I thought I would be getting top notch crusine. Instead, I got ordinary...More
