I love the Shovel! Great food, service and excellent patio to enjoy the experience. I highly recommend checking this place out, especially for live music once that gets going again.

I had a POKE BOWL, it was fresh and healthy, with a varied and fabulous taste. My husband loved the burger. Our server was wonderful and friendly. Beautiful table with plenty of space from others to feel safe from Covid. Cool historic too.

My first time ever experience a few years ago I had a sub-par experience at the shovel. This year has really turned it around in my books. The happy hours specials are fantastic. The servers are super helpful with food and drink recommendations. If youre going to eat or drink anywhere in Rossland, the Shovel is where to go!

Though the name implies a restaurant with an abundance of decor and ambience, it is the food and drink that make this place stand out. A very diverse menu (I had the Scotch Egg and Cuban Sandwich) provides plenty of opportunity to explore cuisine not usually found in a small rustic ski town. There is definitely something for everyone with prices that are respectful of the quality of food served. The bar and drink menu matched the girth of food menu, with a healthy mix of local beers on tap. As COVID usually works to minimize experience at most establishments today, the staff and music at the Flying Steamshovel were both respectful of pandemic stresses and worked to ensure the meal and drinks were served in a friendly and professional manner.
