Diner Reviews
  • "E3 is a chophouse that lives up to the name. Excellent cuts of meat from local ranches. Have been at E3 several times now since they opened last winter. In the summer they open the walls which are actually garage doors, opening up the entire inside to the Yampa river. Outside dining is available but even eating inside, you get that outdoor feel. Service has been great. It's a little pricey but with the food and ambiance, worth it. Great bar with enough TVs to keep the sports enthusiasts happy. The bar is nicely separated from the eating area so as not to overwhelm or interfere with the diners and the outdoor experience. Very good wine list. Deserts are awesome too. Downside, we were under a speaker and the music was a bit loud."

  • "I took my husband to E3 Chophouse for our anniversary and I am extremely happy that we decided to celebrate it there. We were sat on the patio. Beautiful evening outside. Our Server was amazing! BTW, I am very picky about my servers since I used to be a server and I expect a lot out of them! But our server was so awesome. The wine menu was nothing but the best selection. The Server helpers kept our water filled throughout the entire evening. The food was so so so very good! I have absolutely no complaints about our visit to E3 Chophouse. Loved it so much that I took all my friends back for lunch the next day and they all loved it as well...... Thank you for a great evening E3 Chophouse!"

  • "We have been coming to Steamboat my whole life and E3 has quickly become a dining favorite! The view and patio are cozy and inviting, the staff is friendly and attentive and the food is amazing. We've been there multiple times and I've never had a bad meal or experience. Would recommend a thousand times over."

  • "E3 was an outstanding dining experience. The food was delicious, the menu reflected many items typically expected for a "steak restaurant", with several unique offerings. We were a group of 6 and tried the strip, elk, prime rib & filet. Everyone loved their entree, excellent meat with complimentary and unique seasoning. The beef carpaccio appetizer was a wonderful addition, nice size and deliciously smoked. The ending, homemade peach pie. Wow! The crust was awesome, not too sweet, just perfect. And to top it off, our server, Abigal, was knowledgable about all items and an absolute delight! She even arranged to have a whole peach pie available to us for our long trip home. Can't say enough great things! We'll definitely be back!"

  • "We thought that the service was poor, food fair, and very overpriced. The drinks were extremely small pour, the price was top shelf. I was told manager is usually present, but we never saw him. The chicken was good, but the pork chop was only fair. They also had a problem with preparation for my guest, a vegan. It is a place I will skip on my next visit to Steamboat."

  • "The food was fantastic. Our server started out taking good care of us, but did not follow through once our meal came. We would have ordered more drinks if we could have. She was standing at the hostess stand chatting! Had brought people to E3 before and had an outstanding experience. Too bad that didn't happen this time."

  • "We celebrated our anniversary and it was wonderful. We dined outside by the river and it was a spectacular view. The food was excellent. Our waiter John was very good. I think he had several larger groups besides us and they were very demanding of his time. He was so busy. The group next to us was obviously having a great time but a bit loud and demanding of John's time. Not anyone's fault of course... I would certainly recommend this restaurant to others. Outstanding. We got a special dessert that was arranged by our friends ahead of time and presented with a sparkler in the middle . Wonderful!"

  • "The food was out of this world, service was great, but it was extremely noisy. We did attend the restaurant on a Saturday night during a weekend with three festivals were happening and the place did not seem too busy the following Sunday night."

  • "Felt like we were forgot about. Sat there for over 15 minutes with two empty glasses. Finally I think one of the manager came over and asked if we needed a refill. Felt like we were forgot about."

  • "Service was slow...very slow. Our server was very friendly and I'm not sure the pace was her fault however. My steak was fine, not the best I've ever had but good. Someone else in our party however had to send his back twice...the first time it was over done, the second it was under done. Find it hard to believe that a NY strip would be that difficult to cook properly, particularly at a restaurant that supposedly specializes in steak. They did go out of there way to make it right and did not charge us for the steak or that dessert. I appreciated their efforts tremendously, I just wish it would have been right the first time. I will return for the happy hour, but probably not for dinner. I don't think it's worth the price."

  • "This was our first time in Steamboat and we had heard great things about this place. The setting, decor and building design are exceptional compared to the surrounding restaurants. Unfortunately, as we have noticed in Colorado, the service was not up to par for such an expensive restaurant. We had 5 adults and 4 children. They left the wine glasses in front of the children's place settings, messed up two orders, and we had to ask three times for a second round of wine. Baked potatoes were incredible. Steaks were amazing overall but they under-prepared the medium rare requests. Desserts were okay but not amazing."

  • "The setting on the river was amazing. Haven't had a better steak in years. I wasn't expecting so much in such a casual town such as Steamboat Springs."

  • "The food was scrumptious, great atmosphere, very nice wait staff. The kitchen is very, very slow, however."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Not happy about all the extra charges on the bill when it came. Charged for split plate but didn't warn us ahead of time, they charge extra for each side you want with your already very expensive steak."

  • "We chanced upon this little gem on Open Table as we were driving in from Denver. We made it just in time for their last lunch reservation. What a fabulous experience! The view as you sit outside along the Yampa River was excellent. Food was great & servers were great to chat with. Live music started at 3pm in the afternoon to relax as you enjoy lunch or a cocktail. What a great start to a long weekend we spent in Steamboat. We loved it so much we went twice for lunch in a 4 day weekend! Definitely must try."

  • "I took a dear friend to E3 for dinner as her birthday gift. We both loved it!!! My rack of lamb was fantastic! My friend is still talking about how great the vegetables (Yes, vegetables!) with her skillet chicken were!"

  • "Food was excellent. Poke appetizer especially good. My pork chop was perfectly prepared. I dislike waiters that interrupt conversations at the table with "are you ready to order?", "what would you like to drink" etc. Annoying."

  • "The wait staff was incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating to a gluten free meals."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "From the time of stepping through the door, the service was amazing. Attention to detail and to us as guests was all that we had expected of a fine dinning experience, and then add on the food, what a treat. Thanks E3! FYI Finding parking close by proved to be a challenge, we had to hunt to find a parking space 3 blocks away but this is not E3's issue."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Steaks and sides were very good. Veggies served on the plate were fair. Our waiter was clearly inexperienced and injected himself in our conversations in a highly annoying way. Although tasty, for the same cost, I would go to Bistro CV or Cafe Diva."

  • "We have eaten at E3 several times since they opened. It's our favorite restaurant in Steamboat Springs! Always such a good time and wonderful food. The staff is super - competent and friendly."

    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "The restaurant is beautiful and is located on the lovely Yampa River in downtown Steamboat Springs. Unfortunately, the food does not live up to the facility. The competition among restaurants here is amazing with 3 or 4 restaurants having world class food but E3 is not in that group. In fact, the food was better at the restaurant that previously operated at this location. The prices are as high or higher than the best restaurants in Steamboat. Hopefully, the food can catch up to the prices and the facility. In spite of its mediocre food and high prices, I would recommend trying this restaurant for the sake of enjoying its beauty and ambiance."

  • "Nice experience with great view overlooking river. Service and food were as one would expect in this price point. Really decent but not likely to blow you away. I will be back."

  • ". The manager Dave is to be commended for his attention to detail and moreover customer service that is raising the standard in steamboat ! He is working feverishly to train, and create a culture of caring and attentive servers and it is apparent! We had a stellar meal with outstanding and timely service.....thanks Dave for your conviction to excellence!"

  • "Relaxed and peaceful dining on the patio, overlooking the river as groups of tubers floated by. Almost distracted me from a fabulous lobster roll!"

  • "We enjoyed our dinning very much. The Elk Tenderloin was super and would recommend highly. They let us have a half order of the Risotto as a side - very good. We also split the Calamari appetizer, which was a special that evening and not another fried dish. It too was very good. The only issue I had was the Syrah wine was not chilled properly. Otherwise, everything was super and we booked a table for new years evening when we are back in town for the ski season. The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating."

  • "It is nice to have this lovely location back for evening dining. It was very crowded, even for a weeknight but the noise level was tolerable. It does help that no music was playing causing diners to raise their voices to overcome the music. The food was good and there were plenty of staff who seem to be quite cooperative."

  • "Our meal was absolutely incredible. We have been wanting to eat at E3 for a while now, and finally goin time. Our service was absolutely horrible! The waiter took at least 25 minutes to get our order, and we ended up asking another waiter for service in addition to our assaigned waiter."
