Description: A place for the hungry. The thirsty. The legendary.Some people actually think the Wright Brothers perfected human flight. Around here, we all know better. Carl Howelsen turned Steamboat into a playground, skis into wings, and mustaches into an art form. His adventurous spirit is our inspiration - and Carl’s Tavern is a place for adventurous spirits to call home. Here, the hospitality is genuine, the beer is cold, and the food is made from scratch. So come as you are, make yourself at home, and share a few of your own legendary stories. Just don’t try to one-up Carl; you’ll hurt yourself.

“Fun Sports Bar with Actually Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Things were rollicking with NFL play-off games on every screen when we arrived at Carl's. Assumed there would be hearty pub food, but we were all psyched that all the basics had an innovative twist. Burgers were great, cooked to order with lots of fun trimmings. The chicken was done to perfection, and totally delivered on home-cooked quality. Last, the crispy brussell sprouts were addictive. All in all a fun ski town restaurant that exceeds its genre.
