“Hair in food. Poor service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

My daughter ordered hamburger. Clearly had several little black hairs in it. Not a persons. More like dog hair. Waitress took meat to show cook as she was shocked. They took order for chicke. Sandwich that came 40 minutes later I was done eating and we had to get to go. Nothing deducted as they said wasn't their fault. Would not return.

“Fast comfort food, friendly staff, great way to start the day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Ate here on a Sunday morning at 10am - VERY busy time during ski season - not sure if they take reservations but if they do, use that option! Had to wait about 20 mins for a table, but we were in and out of there within 30 mins once seated, all the food was good. Kids loved the "mickey mouse" pancakes (yes, they will add chocolate chips!). We liked it because it didn't take up much of our vacation time and was better than the hotel "breakfast" our place offered.

“One of the best waffles I've ever had”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

Great breakfast, fast or slow, really, such a good waffle. There are many choices in town but the shack is easy to get in and get out, quick good hot food. Had a great breakfast and an especially good waffle, old school, not Belgian. A great choice for local dining.

“Good, reliable, hearty food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

This was our first restaurant we went to when we arrived in Steamboat - lunchtime. Nothing fancy, just good, warm your heart, fill your belly kind of food. You can get breakfast anytime. Service was friendly!
