We found this place a couple years back and every time we go to Steamboat it is the ONLY place we eat breakfast. The servers hustle to cover all the tables and get your food quick, and it's not just a small plate of food. We've had several different things there and never had a bad experience. It's a bit...

The Shack is great breakfast joint with a plentiful menu to satisfy adults and children in your party. Everyone was equally satisfied with his dish. The spicy ones were spicy, and the mild ones were mild. The eggs are well prepared; the green chili is tasty. We were surprised to be seated so quickly a prime hour of the morning.... More

What a great place to start the day! Very friendly staff, a comfortable down-home atmosphere and great breakfast cuisine. I had the Hobo Special and my partner had a veggie omelet. We both liked our meals very much. The service was quick and the cost was reasonable. We will be back for another breakfast!

We stopped in for a quick lunch and tea and ordered the green chili omelet with cheese. It was so good that we came back the next day for breakfast and ordered it again and the coffee is really good too. Great service with happy people, I think this is a hidden gem!

Great waitress! Kept our coffee full and really made you feel welcome. Food was also very good. This place always seems clean and act like they really want your business.

A wide selection of usual breakfast fare - served all day - as well as a lunch menu. Food came fast and was delicious albeit a tad pricy for breakfast but par for the course for Steamboat Springs. Good service as well.

Friendly, efficient waitstaff. A bit on the pricy side for lunch for this rural Wisconsin woman, but they will actually cook your Teriyaki cheeseburger rare! Recommended.

We had lunch at The Shack. They had a good selection of items either for breakfast or lunch. A good kids menu too. I ordered a summer salad with lots of blueberries and strawberries with greens. It was the perfect size and very fresh. Other's enjoyed their hamburgers. The whole staff was very friendly and checked on us often. This... More
