Fairly small but we were able to be seated right away. Food was good and service also. Basic breakfasts but were accommodating to special requests. Coffee was continually refilled.

The atmosphere is very cozy. The wait staff is very friendly. The food is excellent and the portions are huge.

Mediocre food. Corn beef hash had very little corn beef and potatoes were mushy. Coffee was undrinkable; tasted burnt. Hash brown potatoes were crispy on top but raw inside. My over easy eggs and my husband’s scrambled eggs were cooked as ordered. Would not recommend.

One of the few breakfast places you can get into on a busy summer day. Great food and prices, too.....

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.

Very kind servers, very good and reasonably priced food. One of our favorite breakfast spots when we come here for vacation.

Even though it was a chilly day, we sat outside because we had our dog with us. Our server was very pleasant and helpful and she didn't seem to mind running outside to wait on us. Unfortunately, the food left a lot to be desired....More

We went here for breakfast three days in a row. We loved the omelettes...and the service was very good. Each day, the chef puts together several specials. Some that had the pancakes loved them as well. Not a fancy place, but great service from Charity...More
