Great location; friendly staff but the food was definitely NOT worth the visit. The two filets mignon were undercooked inside although we asked medium well. Took a long time before they came out again.
We also ordered creamy spinach on the side... tasted really salty. Béarnaise sauce was good. Normally we’d have dessert too but skipped it because we were afraid it was going to be of the same level as the main dish. Not going to this place again.
On vacation, this place was recommended to us. We loved the ambiance. The view was outstanding! We were outside by the raging waters and beautiful scenery. That said, our server was busy and not super attentive. Our plates were not cleared for a long time and our dessert took so long bc it was screwed up. Also, some of our steaks that were ordered ‘medium’ came med well and for $50 a steak that’s not right and just missed the mark, but for the long amount of time we were there and with our kids, we decided to just eat and be merry.
The restaurant seemed a bit overwhelmed and server seemed so busy that she forgot about us which was a bummer.
We’d recommend this place bc it is so beautiful and the location is amazing. Just hope for a focused staff and slower night.
I have eaten there for the last 5 yrs as one of my go to’s for fine dinning. Have never been so disappointed in a $250 meal EVER! Cold food poor quality steak...the GF ‘s was
literally COLD every part of the meal. She assumed it was leftovers. They tried to make it right by removing it from the bill and getting deserts....but really after the quality of what they served it didn’t do much to rectify the trash they served us! Not again!
We come to Steamboat every summer for the Mustang Roundup and look forward to this restaurant. It's always an amazing evening... Great food and service!!
We've dined @ the E3 Chophouse on several occasions and the quality of the food and service has always been first rate. We'd highly recommend it for a special occasion or a quality dining experience anytime.
We go to chophouse every once in a while for special occasions. Always excellent food, service and ambiance.
Great food, service and entertainment from a baby black bear on the deck!
Always great ambiance watching the river when it’s up and good food. Fun burger night, a great bargain!!!
We had a lovely dinner, salmon and scallops, lobster bisque soup and of course truffle fries. Portions were perfect. Our waiter was attentive and courteous. We managed to have dinner during a 2 for 1 special that really helped our pocket book. A wonderful start to a very fun evening!
One of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Good restaurant.
The food was delicious. Our waitress Bree did a wonderful job. We will ask for her again. She was very friendly and informative regarding the menu. Overall a wonderful dining experience.
We loved the setting. Good food and a great wine list.
Service is always top notch. Great place to celebrate a special occasion.
Still love going to this place, great service and atmosphere. My wife asked for a well-done steak and ended up with medium, that would explain the low rating. But all in all a wonderful place in Steamboat.
Hi Mark, We are so glad to hear you keep coming back to E3 for more! We believe we deliver an incomparable experience by the Yampa River. We are so sorry to hear that your steak was not the temperature desired. While we do use top of the line meat thermometers, it is always possible for steak temps to vary a bit here and there. Please don't hesitate to let us know next time, and we promise to make it right for you, on the spot. Best, the E3 Family
The service was excellent. The food was good and the atmosphere is the best. Dining next to a beautiful mountain river is the perfect setting for a special evening.
Thank you for the beautiful review! This is just what we are shooting for with every customer and we are so glad we delivered. Best, the E3 Family
Very disappointed. The "deal" stated 2 hamburger patties. I only got one. It was so small it was almost invisible. The truffle fries were cold. We asked for warm fries and they brought barely warm regular fries instead of the truffle fries.
We're sorry to hear this Joanne. While we consider our $11 deal for the burger with regular fries (our truffle fries are not a part of the deal) and with a glass of wine to be one of the best in Steamboat, we do sometimes make mistakes. We would like the opportunity to make this right, please email our admin at e3admin@e3chophouse. We aren't perfect but we do guarantee the quality of our meals, and it sounds like we had a "goof" last week. We look forward to the opportunity to make this right.
This was our second time to E3. We had a very positive experience during our first visit in Feb and wrote a very good review. This time, in April, the food was disappointing. Neither steaks, sides, or dessert were impressive. Not at all worth the expense. Do they send there chefs off on vacation after peak ski season ends?
We're sorry to disappoint, Cleveland. Sometimes we do have an off night, and we hope to have you all back in to show you that we don't send our chefs away for mud season ;). Best, the E3 Family
Smash burger was okay, but not a real burger. I know it wasn't, but it seemed almost microwaved. Not what I'd expect for E3, even for mud season. I know it was a deal, but locals are important too.
How disappointing to hear, Heather, especially after hearing so many positive reviews around town as of late. We do hand grind the finest grade Never Ever sirloin and then hand prepare each patty, so we're not sure what happened! We are also running this price point ($11 is one of the best in town, I know you'll agree as a local too) for our locals, so while we are sorry to have missed on your visit, we do hope to get another opportunity to cater to our locals, who are extremely important to us.
Great food, great see
Great food, excellent service!
Overall very good service and great steaks!
A bad start...went in at 3 minutes before reservation time and place was 90% empty....Hostess said our table was not quite ready. She proceeded to seat two other parties before us and then set us next to a table full of small noisy kids (again 80% empty...The waiter saw the problem and reseated us...the rest was good.
No better way to celebrate a milestone than amazing food, friendly and outstanding service in a beautiful location!
Very nice service, good food, but 2 of our 4 steaks ordered medium rare were closer to medium well. They promptly replaced them, and they were great.
Very enjoyable dinner. The food was very good and our waiter and the rest of the staff were great.
Great ambiance for just about any occasion. Cool and lively bar, quiet and romantic dining areas. Ask the waitress if the chef will make you some truffle butter to top your steak with....YUM! Great wine selection and good Manhattans. Also, ask for a seat by the window overlooking the Yampa River.
Eek! Was so looking forward to trying this restaurant after reading about the amazing Kansas beef that they have. My husband got a filet and it was fantastic but I got a ribeye and it was really bad. It had chunks of gristle in it and it was extremely lean, which is not good for a ribeye. Because it was so lean it had very little flavor. They were very kind and took it back and did not charge us but that’s not what I wanted. I wanted an amazing ribeye. Everything else was great and the service was great but my steak was such a disappointment:-(
5 out of 15 mussels in appetizer were closed in shell (spoiled and dead). Steak overpriced for the quality. Service was enthusiastic but absent at times. Bread service was offered but never delivered. Free dessert for anniversary.
I think there’s food was far over price. The environment was not an intoxicating. There’s no reason to end up with a $500 meal for four people
Highly over rated! After the speech about how they grow their own beef and how it is ALL 2% Prime I ordered the 12 oz. filet medium because their definition of medium is a warm red center. 45 minutes later.....a grotesque looking pyramid shaped piece of meat was placed in front of me that was obviously the butt end of the tenderloin.....so tough I couldn’t cut it! Cooked well done!
Our server was somewhat shocked and asked if I wanted another one....DUH!! $58? 45 minute wait? Yes I want another. She left and returned with another one in 3 minutes! They had another medium filet coming up and she grabbed it for me....this one was perfect! Good cut and cooked medium per their definition.....we were so hungry we ate like refugees and then ordered our daughter an appetizer of their pretzel and cheese fondue.
When we got it home to her it was absolutely inedible....the pretzel had been placed on top of the fondue dip then removed and replaced in a separate box....the cheese dip was 90% Parmesan cheese....really? It was terrible!
The entire rating would have been 1 star if it weren’t for our server Lyfe!!! She was a solid 5 star and did all one person could do to minimize the overall debacle....had the appetizer not been the third strike of the evening her efforts and attitude would have elevated the rating to good.... But the to go order was the third strike!!!
Two people with no alcohol, no dessert! $178!!!
I would suggest going to other steak houses in Steamboat....
Solid meal with quality meats. Very good.
Very good food and service in a beautiful setting right on the Yampa River. The prices are high but its a ski resort town so that's how it is. The happy hour food is delicious and much more reasonably priced.
Everything seemed to go wrong. We ordered an appetizer that never showed up. Finally they apologized and said they ran out. Then once I received my filet it was over done. The server saw it and they got me a new one but it took a while and even it was not very flavorful. Ended up not eating much of it. Not worth over $50 for a steak.
In our experience, E3 has always been inconsistent, yet we keep giving them another chance. We’re done. Our weekday meal for four was a big disappointment. Our reservation was honored and our single drink orders taken quickly. We all ordered salads, Cobb, Caesar which came timely, but none of them were dressed well. We asked and received extra dressing and waited forever for entrees. The meat entrees were fine; Though I’m a meat lover, I had a vegetarian pasta dish that sounded superb but was inedible. It was lukewarm on arrival, the pasta so hard and stiff it couldn’t be chewed. I would have sent it back if our very nice server had returned. When he finally did, I told him it was inedible and he removed it from our bill. The other three in our party enjoyed their desserts, but the dining experience for salad, steak, baked potato took two and one half hours! The background jazz music was loud and frenetic- hardly appropriate for dining. It’s a lovely location, apparently with major kitchen issues. It seemed there were plenty of servers but several young girls (managers?) standing around chatting. No one ever made rounds at our table to check on our satisfaction. Our bill for four was nearly $400...what a waste.
Service was on it! Steak cooked perfect to temp.
Really enjoyed the dining experience.
How come no Porterhouse cut to choose from?
Excellent service at the hostess stand, the bar and at the table. Great experience
Dinner was lovely. Atmosphere was as romantic as they come and food was great. I proposed to my girlfriend as we walked out the door after our meal! If you have any camera footage let us know! HAHA Thanks for an amazing night in an enchanted town!
Awesome meal and even better dining experience. Ryan our waiter was fantastic. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
Great service from Lyfe, but totally overpriced! Shrimp cocktail consisted of 4 tails, minimal cocktail sauce on lettuce for $22 and steak prices that were all around $50. Sorry E3, but we won’t be back.
Food was awesome. Environment was awesome. Great place
E3 is our go-to restaurant in Steamboat , especially with guests. This visit on 3/2/19 was not up to par.
Our table was ready upon arrival at 730pm but our waitperson was obviously not. She came to the table right away but informed us that she would have to come back in "just a few minutes". She returned about 15 minutes later asking for our drink order. Way too much time left unattended offering what should have been done within 5 minutes of being seated. Our appetizers were sort of timely and lovely.
Once again there was an inordinate delay in taking dinner orders and again for dinners being delivered.
We love to visit but so many blips for this dinner I think that I should write this review. Dinner took much to much time and my guests were all polite but wondering what was going on.
I am guessing that there was a problem with service personnel being absent that might. Be that as it may be, the guests will be disappointed if this was their first visit. If there were not enough servers, the manager should have stepped in and assisted to insure a pleasurable dining experience.
This will not preclude our visiting again but I may look else where as well.
We live in Steamboat part of the year so quality dining experiences are very important to us. Thanks for your time.
