We always go to the shack when in town for breakfast, everything on the menu is good, including the coffee. Always have a good experience.

I don't even look at the menu because I order the same thing depending on whether it is breakfast or lunch. Great news, they are both offered on the same menu. Don't forget the "special" board! Staff is always friendly and service is fairly quick....More

Located center of town in Steamboat this little local joint is only open for breakfast and lunch. Small and comfy feel with counter seating also available. The menu is quite extensive and service was good.

This downtown spot is tucked away but don't overlook it for a solid breakfast and one of the best bloody mary's in Steamboat! They serve everything from eggs to pancakes with good coffee. It's right downtown so perfect to begin your day of Steamboat Shopping!

This is a hidden gem, located down on the main drag. We stopped in for breakfast and was very pleased with the food and the very reasonable prices. All 4 of us really enjoyed our meals. I had the biscuit and gravy with a side...More

The Shack is consistently good! It's the no fuss, no frills basic breakfast and lunch joint people pack into every day in Steamboat. It's where you'll get a classic patty melt or BLT and the interior is a relaxed western vibe. Counter seating as well....More
