Truffle Pig was good, but not great. My wife and I recently dined there with friends, and expected a bit more from our experience based on ambiance and price.

Pros
-- Ambiance and overall look/feel of Truffle Pig was great. Clean modern look while also having the western feel you'd expect from a Steamboat dining experience.
-- Wine list is outstanding, and of course a solid list of microbrews to back that up. Also a great bar area, and if visiting again we might just stop there.

Cons
-- Food was good, but expected it to be great based on price. I had a pork dish that was a bit dry, and my wife's steak frites was extremely tough.
-- Service was average at best. Our waiter seemed less than energetic to serve us and was not all that knowledgable about the menu or wine list. Also, my wife had arranged a birthday surprise for our friend with the restaurant hostess, and the hostess left for the night without telling our waiter about the surprise or arranging anything, so that was a big disappointment.

So nothing hugely wrong with Truffle Pig, but nothing great that would make this a must dining experience. It's doubtful that we'll return.

We had dinner here on our first night in town and weren't disappointed. Our waiter Craig gave excellent service and advice. Our group loved the crab cakes, ribs and truffle fries. Nice bar and great bourbon list too. More up market than relaxed but menu should appeal to most people.

What a wonderful experience! The service was great. Craig helped us navigate through the menu and made wonderful recommendations. The crab cake was a delight. I also recommend the salmon. You must end your evening with the decadent chocolate pot de crème.

This was my second time here, but first time during the busy ski season (last time was during summer and we ate outside on the deck)

We got a reservation and were seated upon arrival. By luck, our waitress was Jeanine who also seved us during the past summer. We started with a tray of oysters and some drinks - they were both great

For dinner, two of us had the ribs, we had the tagliatelle, the burger and truffle fries and the special Lamb. All of the food was great except the Lamb - since we did not like the lamb, they offered us the osso bucco which was fabulous - this was great service and making sure that we left happy

I think this is a really good place to eat while at steamboat and especially recommend it for eating outside on the deck with the views of the mountain

So I have been going to Steamboat for years and never have gone to the truffle pig. This year we decided to splurge and go and wow what a dissapointment.

The location and atmosphere are nice but the food and experience is below even mediocre. Maybe if you ordered truffle fries and pizza it would be ok but for the price they charge you would expect better food, even the poor woman behind me had to send back her pasta dish.

We were very cautious about going there and frankly after asking all of our drivers, hosts and locals they all said the location is mixed, sometimes good and sometimes bad - well it was just not a good experience.

I am not going to into what we ate because on this occasion it did not matter it was all just mediocre, not bad, but who wants to pay top dollar for mediocre.

Do Not Go there you will be disappointed.
