Diner Reviews
  • "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:)"

  • "Be prepared for lots of children running around and in and out of the door to outside (allowing cold air in during Winter months) if you choose to dine early."

  • "We were a group of 12 kids and adults. Food was very good. They easily accommodated our size group and service was good."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "A lovely neighborhood gem. Very accommodating of all our various requests. Waiter was wonderful. Don't be deterred by the location in the Holiday Inn- unexpected but perfectly fine!"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Cornbread was outstanding with that caramelized pecan butter. Burgers were the best we had in Steamboat!! I had the Gracie Burger - fabulous!! We had a large group of 12 - service was excellent which is sometimes tough with a large group but it wasn't a problem here."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Been here a number of times - good comfort food in a casual setting Had the fish tacos which I have to say was not my best meal here- others had the burger (excellent), chicken (really good), mac n cheese (excellent) Traditionally always solid with friendly services and I like the owners who really are foodies"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The food at Rex's is always delicious, the service prompt, and if you happen to be there in the summer, the outdoor dining cannot be beat. Even according to my kids, this is the hamburger gold standard...."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "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."

  • "Whatever the Chef has done with the Cider-Brined pork chops was spot on! I do not believe that I have eaten a better chop! Well done! Our party was skeptical about dining in a hotel restaraunt - but you proved them wrong!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Very good menu, great service. Server was very knowledgeable . You can spend alot more and not get a better meal."

  • "This is a good restaurant on the south end of town. They have some nice and creative pizzas, and a decent wine selection. Service was average."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "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!"

  • "When we found ourselves far from family and stressed with busy Schedules we opted to go out for Thansgiving dinner. We selected Rex's since they always get it right. This was no exception ... Everything about our dinning experience was incredible. The food was hot and delicious , the service was great and all were happy! I would recommend this restaurant over and over again."
    Dined on 11/28/2013
  • "Who knew that comfort food could have so many different preparations that top the original? While this restaurant is adjacent to a hotel, it is not a typical hotel dining room - a fact born out by the various neighborhood families eating there."

  • "Traveling through Steamboat Springs, & stopped in at Rex's. Food was fabulous! Service was friendly and excellent! Streak was melt in your mouth delicious! I also ordered coconut cream pie & is was heaven on a plate! It was so good, went bak for breakfast! It was just as great!"

  • "Great shrimp appetizer, bison burger and mac n cheese were outstanding. get pepper jack cheese on the burger to add a little zip"
    Dined on 8/11/2013
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/10/2013
  • "We love to sit outdoors, watch all the children play on the grass; we bring our dog and have a great meal. The food is great - fish tacos, pizzas, salads. You really can't go wrong if you want a nice, casual atmosphere and good service."
    Dined on 8/4/2013
  • "As they describe it, the Backyard Burger is just done simply and correctly!"
    Dined on 7/27/2013
  • "I had salmon with a salad. The salad had quinoa and green olives. The salmon was very good. My husband had a shrimp BLT with fries. He thought it was very tasty. They have an outdoor patio that has live music on the weekends. Our server was Andrew and we liked him a lot. This restaurant is very well liked by locals."
    Dined on 7/23/2013
  • "The food was excellent!!!! As others have said in their reviews "Don't let the location in a Holiday Inn put you off!" Food and service were GREAT and we will go back! Get a reservation to avoid a long line."
    Dined on 3/25/2013
  • "Creative comfort food in a pretty generic setting. There is something for everyone on this menu...and nothing disappointed. Burgers and pizza and salad were all excellent. And, I'll add to the chorus...don't let the Holiday Inn location deter you."
    Dined on 3/17/2013
  • "Don't let the location fool you. Great Steamboat option especially with kids."
    Dined on 3/13/2013
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/13/2013
  • "Wow, great menu and solid beer list. Happy Hour from 4:20-6:00 is great... half price appetizers and $1 off anything at the bar. I has the spicy Mac 'n Cheese and tastes of several different pizzas - all good."
    Dined on 3/5/2013
  • "Rex was well recommended by a number of people. We were seated quickly and wait staff were attentive and responsive. Food was only OK."

  • "We were glad we did not let its location at Holiday Inn deter us from going."
    Dined on 3/2/2013
  • "Amazing food and service! I went with a group of nine people and was honestly a bit skeptical when I saw that the restaurant was located in the bottom of a Holiday Inn Express. It turned out to be one of the best meals we had during our week in Steamboat and I highly recommend it to anyone."
    Dined on 1/31/2013
  • "Food was excellent. Service was terrible. Waitress walked by our table for over 15 minutes before coming over. Continued in this them during dinner. After we ate, they removed plates followed by condiments, etc until the table was bare. Obviously urging us to leave even though nobody was waiting. Rather unpleasant."
    Dined on 1/25/2013
  • "The food at Rex's was OK, nothing spectacular but good portions and flavor. Although it is linked to a noisy bar, the dining area was quiet enough to have a conversation. At least for our visit, the service was the low point. Waitress was slow to visit the table after we were seated and then again at the end. It took 10 mins from the time we requested the check until the transaction was completed. If it were a busy night I might let that slide, but the restaurant wasn't full at the time. We might give it a try again on a future visit, but it wasn't a high point this time."

  • "went to Rex's with a group of 10 adults and kids. Our table was waiting when we arrived, the service was terrific and the food was great."
    Dined on 1/19/2013
  • "We usually don't do this, but we went to Rex's two nights in a row because the food was so good. The cornbread with praline butter was amazing! The French fries were perfectly crisp and thin, the tenderloin was cooked to perfection, the 2 pizzas we had were deliciously interesting, and the burger was the best that I have had in a long time. Service was friendly but not efficient, but it gave us more time to savor this gem in a ski town of average food."

  • "They did a great job. Steaks were very good. Overall a fine restaurant."
    Dined on 1/3/2013
  • "Great local spot. Our family had our best meal of the week at Rex's. Don't be intimidated that it is attached to the HI."
    Dined on 1/3/2013
  • "Rex's was extremely busy on a holiday ski day in Steamboat. Apprehensive that service and / or food quality would suffer as a result. Very pleasantly surprised that the service was outstanding (including details about a specific bar drink) and the food was very good. Well done. The reputation is warranted."
