While on a quick vacation to Steamboat, we stopped at Carl's Tavern. It right across the street from the Yampa and away from the traffic on Steamboat's Main Street, aka U.S. Hwy 40. Try their homemade pickles served in a Ball canning jar, so you can take the rest back with you. Lots of great choices for dinner, including chicken-fried steak, my son's favorite. We ate at Carl's during the NCAA basketball final. While the fans were definitely cheering, we could still converse at our table. We stopped there again for lunch, when it was much more serene.
