We were told to eat at the Tugboat while we were in Steamboat. We went on a Friday afternoon around 2pm. There were only a few other tables in the whole place and it took the server a very long time to get to our table to greet us. There was only one server and two people behind the bar who seemed to be doing nothing. The food took a long time to come out as well, actually one of the men behind the bar came out and sat with another table that had arrived while we were there. Their food came out before ours, we thought that was really interesting. We ordered the burger and catfish and they were nothing exciting. On our next visit in Steamboat, we will not choose to go there.

The Tugboat has everything you would expect in a Colorado ski town 'dive.' It has poor service, pricey beer and overpriced comfort food. I have been there several times. The 80s decor is enjoyable. Avoid the fish and chips. It will, literally, make you ill. The burger is probably the safest bet, though don't expect it not to be over-cooked. Go for the location and people watching. Steamboat is a fun town.

While it changed hands about 2 years ago, Tugboat Grill and Pub remains a delightful lunch spot - yes, it's crowded because everyone wants to eat here once or twice in a week, but the food is reliable good and the atmosphere is inviting.

Loved this place, real USA sports bar. Simple menu like wings, burgers etc but super tasty and just what we needed post the slopes. As with everywhere we ate in Steamboat the prices were great.

Tug Boat used to be the place to hang out, but the way they run things now during Music Fest is Horrible. Door guys need to be fired.
