New napkins please!
Good as usual - but we left with white napkin pieces all over our pants again since they STILLhave those old white towel/napkins that pill up all over your clothes :(

Nothing but good things to say about Carl's Tavern. Food was excellent.

The food is outstanding at Carl's and they have a notable bar list!
The hostess was unfriendly and a bit odd. Our waitress was nice but not overly friendly.
The bar crowd pretty much consumed our reserved dinner table and needed to be better controlled. Servers and bussers couldn't get through the standing crowd and the manager did nothing to help. The restaurant was too noisy to carry on a conversation at your own table and this was early in the evening.
Perhaps Carl's is a better lunch than dinner spot, unless you're interested in either being a part of the overwhelming bar crowd or being taken over by it.

A great break from the norm!
We love Carl's Tavern. We love the menu and atmosphere. It's a great break from cooking at home, yummy food without being too fancy or too plain. Our 5 year old son loves it and that means a lot as well. It's our go-to restaurant in town.

Excellent Dining Spot
Good menu selections (comfort food and steaks) and drink choices. Quite noisy, sports bar theme with lots of big screen televisions. The food was very good and the service was excellent, in spite of being busy. Reservations suggested to avoid a wait for tables.

Nice spot for a larger group
We had a large party, and Carl's accommodated us. It took awhile, but it was the Fourth of July holiday, so the little bit of wait was understood. The live music was a bonus!

BEST BURGERS & FRIES IN S.B.
And the ambience, service & other entrees were great, too. Very friendly host & waitstaff -- and they take reservations. Be sure to make one, because the night before was a 1.5 hour wait at this popular joint. Near the Yampa River & across from Howelson Hill... nice location. Fun place for groups & families and a good happy hour, too. Prices were very reasonable for the amount/quality of food. Overall, great experience & we'll be back next summer!

Business Dinner for 16 @ Carl's
The Service was simply excellent -- our Waittress was wonderful. Most everyone enjoyed their food good variety, good steaks -- excellent beer selection. The Sea Bass sald was the only downside -- overcooked, over breaded, and dried out.
I will gladly return --- although the restaurant will need to be careful with the sea bass -- lightly bread it or grilled... will go for steak, bison burger, etc...

our best meal yet in the boat....
As we have just moved to the area as foodies, we have taken on the adventure of finding our favorite spot. Carl's does an amazing job at making you feel comfortable through their amazing hostess and houseman. We ate like kings, the quality of food was fantastic.

We LOVE going to Carl's Tavern in Steamboat. It is our favorite place because of the friendly and knowledgeable service...but the best part is those crispy brussel sprouts!

My husband and I were in Steamboat Springs for the wine weekend this past weekend and had lunch at Car's. We sat outside on the patio, enjoying a perfect day, sipped some wine and had a wonderful meal. We shared the Reuben and the Carolina Pulled Pork. Large portions and great service--our waiter happened to be a young man from our home town in Arkansas, so that was fun too!

pleasant for lunch
The food was pretty good; the crispy brussel sprouts was especially tasty. The grilled artichoke was good. I had the rib eye (medium rare) with side of fries and thoroughly enjoyed both; very well prepared for the steak, and fries were tasty and crispy. The selection of beer was appropriate too. All this was well complimented by great friendly service. So while this is not a fancy place, it was a very nice meal in a town that otherwise is a bit "touristy" for my taste.

Just Go There: You Will Like It
We were new in town and were looking for a good burger, as we had been driving all day and were quite hungry. We decided on Carl's Tavern after reading the reviews online. We were not disappointed. We had never eaten fried brussel sprouts before so we had to try them. They were outstanding; highly recommended. And save room for the bread pudding; it's one of the best.

Good food for adults and kid friendly. Would definitely recommend

Excellent Meal and Service
The Scottish salmon special was fantastic--fresh fish and superb preparation and presentation. Also, the tomato blue cheese soup was fantastic. Our server Lindsay was great!

While spending a night in
While spending a night in Steamboat, we chose to eat at Carl's. After reading some negative reviews on Yelp, we were a bit skeptical but thought the menu looked good and the atmosphere seemed low key. Overall, we were thrilled with our choice. The food is very much comfort food with a twist. Everything we ordered ("The Business," meatloaf, pot pie, and crispy brussel sprouts) was delicious. It's a comfort food restaurant mixed with a sports bar (something we liked since college football had just started). Our waiter was fabulous. He was very knowledgeable and because I ordered a Moscow Mule, he took my ID as collateral. He reminded me at least 5 times that he had my ID to ensure I didn't leave without it (which I very much appreciated!)

My wife had shrimp and I had
My wife had shrimp and I had the pot roast. Pot roast portion was substantial, shrimp was adequate. Both meals were excellent and the prices were most reasonable. Would return next time and certainly recommend it. Of three nights in Steamboat it was best overall dining experience.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
better than you'd expect
We ate there once and found the crispy brussel sprouts are fantastic, melt-in-your-mouth veggies. I loved the pot roast and my girl enjoyed the salmon.

Carl's is our family favorite
We have recently moved to Steamboat and this is a great place for a casual evening with our twenty-something kids. Nice variety on the menu and Carl's has a great selection on Colorado beer. The service has always been outstanding. I would recommend making a reservation, as this place is hopping! We had a burger, the pot pie, and the BBQ with slaw, everyone was happy with
their choice. You will not leave hungry, and the fries are fab!
