A glorious trip to the Steamboat Springs area had only one hiccup--the Sweetwater Grill. A hostess seated us on the sunny patio as we requested, then hollered to some guy to get the umbrella up for shade. He disappeared. When the waitress came I had to ask her to do it, the obvious was not offered. Our food was taking a long time and she finally came to explain that, well, it was the pizza for our 5-year old daughter. "They forgot to turn the oven on." REALLY?? At 1 p.m. on a brunch/lunch Sunday with the rest of the patio filled already the oven was not ON?? So, she brought us a seared tuna appetizer as a consolation prize. Doesn't every hungry 5-year old want a platter of raw fish with candied seaweed and hot sauce? Not mine! When the pizza arrived it was disgusting--and hard to fathom how a thin smear of jarred marinara sauce on bread with grated mozzarella barely melted held up the kitchen. I've made better frozen pizza in a toaster oven. My spinach salad with Colorado peaches included very, very thinly sliced peaches that were likely from anywhere but Colorado--in peach season, no less!--was lame. My husband's cheeseburger was like a warmed frozen patty. Considering the obvious expense put into the decor--nice bathrooms!--it's a shame this incredible location is such a waste.
