Busy night within Restaurant Week so crowded but staff did a fair job of keeping up. Price of special was very reasonable. Quality of sirloin, salmon and chicken very good. Side dish options good, though baked potatoes were at best lukewarm inside. Desert was great.
Cooking your entree selection was fun.

We had a very large group - 16 people. We were able to make a reservation and got right in and right to a table. Our server got all our drinks quickly and explained the menu. The whole group had fun grilled their own steaks. What a blessing. Thanks!!!

Believe it or not this is a cook your own steakhouse. However, the website says nothing about it. Wonder why? Our group of four walked in for dinner, sat down, reviewed the system, got up and left. The staff was unhelpful and rude. The meat display case did not look appealing at all.
Stay away from here. There are a lot of great restaurants in Steamboat.

The food was quite good; however, we did not realize when we made reservations that we would have to do everything except the side dishes ourselves. Cooking our own steaks was okay, it just didn’t work so well for the one member of our party with mobility issues. I would also have appreciated knowing more about the price of side dishes and how many servings they were. The salad bar was excellent and the quality of the side dishes and meats was good. It’s a good value overall, as long as you aren’t expecting someone to actually serve you.

I didn’t realize I would have to cook my own food. My steak took ten mins less than my friends so I ate alone while she finished hers. Overpriced for decent service and food I had to cook myself. Sides are a la crate and overpriced as well, my friend payed $5 for 6 steamed asparagus with no seasoning.

We haven't been to 8th St steakhouse for several years. We usually go to E3, but 8th Street was available and I needed a steak. Two of us got the Buffalo steak, cooked it as recommended and it was delicious. The sides were very good and just the right size to share with a family of four. Our server was also very nice and helpful.

I won't wait so long next time to go back.

This was our fits visit and we did not realize that you had to cook your own steaks. Our waiter was rude and did not even greet us and explain the process. It was very poorly run. You cook your own steak on a grill that is not supervised with little kids running all around it. No reason for a waiter.

Be prepared to cook your own steak, if this isn't a problem, then I highly recommend this place. The cuts of meat are the best in town and they give good instruction on how to cook them. I also enjoyed cooking Texas toast on the grill and eating it while drinking my beer and talking to my buddies and a couple of tourist. It's hard for others to text when they are actually having a conversation and trying not to burn their high dollar piece of meat. The only issue that I have is that they removed the poster from the men's room (you know the one). That to me was a legendary poster that had been up there for years, I was very disappointed that it was gone. I hope the removal was only temporary.

It was a fun atmosphere but expensive and not a great value for having to cook your own steak. A larger salad bar and include a baked potato would have made this a better value.

Food good, however, service mediocre at best- ribs arrived cold. This place feels dated. Be sure to cook your own meat- the filet we cooked was delicious.

Very pleased with meal and service. My 8 oz NY strip steak was tender and flavorful. The house merlot was pretty tasty also. The side portions are very large, definitely meant for sharing. I think the grill area could be a little more organized with better separation of used and clean utensils. I wish the buffalo steak was offered as a smaller cut.

The 8th Street Steakhouse owner Tim Pahula and his well~trained crew provide everything and we mean everything for a fine enjoyable evening in Steamboat Springs cooked by a great chef: YOU!

This restaurant is a gem and is centrally located. Its name is its address just off Lincoln Avenue.

The cuts of proteins are various, generous and fairly priced. The salad bar is amply stocked with ample choices.

The staff are professional and several have been working here for many years.

As infrequent regulars, we love the bar as well as the food; the bartenders are excellent.

Highly Recommended.

Great experience cooking your own choices of meats and lots of fun as a group- we were six. The food was excellent and we pretty much managed to cook all our steaks the way we like them. Minor gripes, the sides, fries etc didn’t arrive until we were half way through our steaks and it wasn’t particularly busy. Second they were too keen to close up and were putting chairs on tables and sweeping the floor around us whilst we were still eating and drinking, not really what you expect even if it is their last skiing week.

This was a fun restaurant and the food was delicious. My only complaint was the fact that they were out of filets when it was time for me to pick out my steak. But the New York strip was delish in its place.

Very crowded and noisy. Seemed they wanted us to hurry so they could turn the table over for the next customers! Expensive when you have to serve yourself and cook your own food - but are still expected to leave a tip. At least I didn’t have to do the dishes ...

Last year we were on the first floor and loved it and would highly recommend. Food was great and my son could not wait for another bison steak. This year we were upstairs, the grill was packed, too loud to visit and the wait was forever.

For 30 years we have becoming here as a family, first Boomerangs and now 8th Street Steakhouse. Steaks are great, all you can eat salad and great family time around the grill as you grill your steak. Highly recommend this establishment.
