“Very welcoming !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

One of the few places open when we visited in September, this bar has a great beer selection and great wait staff. Visited 2 times during our stay for beer, wine and snacks.

“Tradition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

Our family has been coming up to the Boat for over 16 years. With all of the changes in gondola square the Tugboat has been able to stand the test of time. This is a must go to place when dinning in Steamboat…

“Pretty good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

We were amazed at how empty the place was, and disappointed that the scheduled music had been cancelled until August, but the food was good despite that. The fresh, stuffed trout was excellent, which was also surprising considering the seeming lack of business.

“Lousy Salad - How do you screw up a caesar salad?!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

We had take out at the restaurant but the salad was just garbage. A big pile of lettuce, some strangely cut turkey, weak dressing. Come on guys! You used to be good. This was junk! Don't bother.
