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.

Lively tavern atmosphere, but not rowdy. Food and service were good. The meatloaf was exceptionally good, however it did not come with any sides. I had to spend an additional $6 to get a vegetable that was enough for 3 people. A little ridiculous. The pot roast my husband had was also very good and did come with vegetables as a pot roast should. The meal my brother ordered was unfortunately burned, but the server did come to the table and tell us our meal would be delayed and why. That was appreciated.

Had dinner with the family and really enjoyed a great meal. We tried the hot wings and oysters, which were very good. For dinner, we had the meatloaf, artichokes, salmon, burger and ribs. The food is freshly made and it is clear that this family owned place makes up many of their own recipes and sauces. Kudos to the chef!

We ate at Carl's while staying in Steamboat Springs. It has the feel of a sports pub with screens showing different athletic events, but the menus seems to be a cut above the standard sports pub. My wife and I had steak which was prepared very nicely and added some shrimp that were very tasty for a small up charge. Sides are ordered separately which raises the overall price a bit, but we felt it was worth the price. Craft beers are available.
