Top Pick

Bistro C.V.

A local favorite, Bistro C.V.’s goal is to celebrate and showcase the freshest ingredients of the season. They love the region they live in and pride themselves on supporting local and organic farmers.  They believe in cooking simply, honestly and with innovation. Their restaurant design provides a dining experience of superior quality within a comfortable atmosphere, unique to Steamboat.


The Paramount Colorado

You’ll find no cans in their kitchen! That’s because The Paramount believes that fresh is always best when it comes to food. Choose from one of their sandwich selections (the pesto chicken with roasted tomatoes, the Crab BLT and Veggie melt are all delicious) or order the steak and gorgonzola salad.  You may want to grab a cup of soup or chili too!  Lunch is served until 3 pm.  Yum!


Truffle Pig

Truffle Pig features casually elegant cuisine crafted from the finest and freshest ingredients. Organic fruits and vegetables, free-range game and meats and line caught seafood paired with outstanding wines from around the region and the world.  If you want a quiet romanic dinner with that special someone and dessert by candlelight, the Truffle Pig Restaurant is the place in Steamboat to escape winter and warm up with friendly folks.



Winona’s is a long-time favorite, especially for breakfast. It’s super casual and mountain-friendly, and service is quick so you can get on the slopes (although you may have a brief initial wait — this place is popular, but the table turnover is fast). Winona’s offers a nice selection of homemade soups, sandwiches and salads for lunch.


Steamboat Cantina

Fun, casual dining in historic downtown Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The Cantina is one of Steamboat’s oldest dining establishments and serves creative Mexican cuisine and award winning fresh squeezed margaritas for lunch and dinner daily.  Order the tequila-fired fajitas and the delicious guacamole — muy bueno!


Canton Chinese

A true local’s favorite since 1983, Canton offers a variety of fine Cantonese, Mandarin and Szechwan Cuisine. Located in the heart of downtown Steamboat Springs. Dine in or take-out is available.


Fiesta Jalisco

Family owned and operated, Fiesta Jalisco offers authentic Mexican fare for families.  Relax and unwind in the festive  atmosphere and indulge in hearty and satisfying fare.  Order the signature dish, Arroz con Pollo: sliced chicken breast, fresh mushrooms, onions and green peppers on rice with melted jack and cheddar cheeses and a special mild sauce.


Azteca Taqueria

Craving Mexican?  Azteca Taqueria has been serving the fastest and freshest Mexican food to Steamboat locals and visitors for over 11 years. Whether it’s a breakfast burrito on your way to the slopes, a sit-down or take-out lunch or dinner, or appetizers and tasty margaritas and beers during our two happy hours, they have something for everyone.
