    The food was excellent - I think I could eat their fish tacos every day!! The food took a while but I think they were overwhelmed by the turnout due to the lovely Indian summer weather! So nice to still be able to sit on the deck!

    Usually it's a terrific spot. This time not so much, service was super slow -server was great but had way too many tables for one person , he had to cover inside and outside. We waited a very long time just for water, appetizer came out with the meal-with ice cold fries, drinks took entirely too long. Overall not the experience we usually have.

    Some folks who recently moved to town had never been to Rex's, so we suggested meeting there for dinner. It went straight to the top of their list of favorite places to eat in town! From the shrimp BLT to the caesar salad with sea bass, the food was superb. Although the weather didn't cooperate with our original plan to sit on the patio with a view of the mountain, our booth inside was comfortable and our server attentive.

    We went in for an early dinner and I had the Seafood special and it was fantastic! Roasted Sea Bass and everything was great - They told me that they get fresh seafood every Friday so it might need to become a regular Friday event:)

    Andrew, the Supervisor, gave us wonderful service. I am celiac and had several questions for the kitchen to ensure my meal was served gluten free. The waitstaff were very attentive to ensure a safe meal. The menu changes regularly, so if you have an old favorite, it's worthwhile asking if it's still available. I would call the atmosphere 'pub' style.

    Ignore the fact it's connected to a Holiday Inn, this isn't bland hotel food. Top notch taste and great value. I had the Chefs special of bacon wrapped scallops. Absolutely great! Chicken fried chicken is off the charts as well. Lot of great food in Steamboat but this is my new favorite for home cooked goodness. Service is adequate but not exceptional.

    Glad we made reservations for this Saturday night before Super Bowl because the place was packed. Kyle, our waiter, was personable, informative and efficient. Our party of five enjoyed our entrees. The Shotback Bison was a hit ! The appetizers - breaded mushooms w/ bleu cheese sauce and artichoke dip with fried potato chips were delicious. We didn't care for the New England Clam Chowder - not enough clams - but the lemon garlic dressing for the dinner salad was refreshing and different. The coconut pie served with freshly whipped cream was the perfect way to end a meal. We shared two portions and were very glad we didn't each order our own. We were stuffed! Overall, it was a wonderful and relaxing dinner.I would return here.

    Our dinner for four became a group of FOURTEEN and when we called to ask about making such a change on short notice during the Christmas holiday week, the response was "we'll make it work". When we arrived, we had FIFTEEN, and again the restaurant was very agreeable to yet another change in our reservation. Upbeat waiter, good service and good food for a large group of differing ages and taste buds. We'll be back!

    We visited Rex's on Thanksgiving 2013 while we were visiting Steamboat for a holiday getaway. We were looking for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner and found exactly what we were looking for at Rex's. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. There were so many choices on the buffet and everything was wonderful. It had all the traditional food we were looking for with some great twists to our favorites. Thanks so much for a wonderful Thanksgiving experience!

    It was very busy the night we dined at Rex's. There were 9 of us. Our waitress Tina was very good; however, I thought the hostess was rude to the people waiting in line. That is the first entrance to a dining experience and should be handled positively even if she is overwhelmed with everyone wanting a table.

    After reading reviews, we went and I was glad. Don't be put off by the fact that it's attached to a Holiday Inn- you'd never know it once you're there. I do recommend making reservations- I was glad I did since there were others who had to wait. Bar was packed, place was lively. Queso starter was amazing with big chunks of sausage. Pizza excellent and the special -steak pot pie- was to die for. Good, not great service, but food was totally worth it.
