This place is slick and far surpasses the humble brewpub roots it claims to come from. Located downtown at 5th and Lincoln, Mahogany Ridge has an incredibly vast and varied menu for a brewery and grill. They have everything from classic pub fare, like fish & chips and spicy buffalo fingers, to interesting larger plates like Southwestern shrimp and grits and spicy chipotle chicken pot pie. If you are looking to bring your dinner to another level, try the dipping menu.
In Steamboat, where there is a sandwich shop on every corner, this places stands out.
Created to cater to the demanding lifestyle of those who live in the recreational paradise of the Rocky Mountains, Backcountry Provisions lives up to its promise. The service is stellar with owners and middle school friends Peter Boniface and David Pepin often behind the counter, serving up soups and sandwiches super fast.
Freshies, a local favorite located on South Lincoln Ave, really lives up to its name. The owners prepare all their dishes from scratch using quality, local ingredients. While they’re on the expensive side, the savory scrambles are delicious for breakfast. Try the classic freshie scramble with basil, garlic, mushrooms, tomatoes, broccoli, and plenty of parm. For a great egg alternative, go for the old fashioned oatmeal, and make sure not to skimp on the fresh strawberries for a little extra.
