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.

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.

Great casual fare. Excellent service. Well priced, especially since the portions are huge. Everything is home made and tastes like it!

We didnt want to eat at Carls to start but ended up there and we were pleasantly surprised. Our waitress was great, we got seated quickly and our food was very nice. The food is very american - meat and potato style. We tend to like more involved food choices, but this met everyones needs.

Carls Tavern was located below the condo unit I was staying in and we tried it one night at the beginning of our trip, and managed to eat there 4 more times in two weeks! The food is fabulous... you must have "The BUSINESS" - fries, with melted cheese, ranch dressing and bacon! Fun for Apres Ski Happy Hour... great wine choices, and they have the best wings ever!!! If you plan to go for dinner... make a reservation! It is ALWAYS busy!

Best meal in the 'boat. Service was the best in town. Great vibe and ambiance. Happy hour specials were great. Dinner was very tasty. Everyone including the kids loved their meal. Definately come try. Live music some nights. TV's for the guys for sports, great view. Make a reservation though. Coupons in the local visitor's guides too for free dessert! You will not be disappointed here!
