My husband and I have been enjoying the Tugboat for over 30 years and were sorry to hear that the new owners had "run it into the ground." (A comment from a local.) The restaurant stands empty now, and one of our favorite watering holes...More

The Tugboat is a ski town favorite. We travel to Steamboat 3 or 4 times a year, and always end up at the Tugboat. Food is good, nothing too fancy, but really good. (Love the pulled pork sandwich!) It's a great place to eat after...More

We only went for drinks, but we loved the bartender. He was willing to help us figure out new drinks, socialized with us, and even divided up the tab of a large group with no complaints! :)

We were here on a slow night. The food was ok, typical bar food. Our server was great, we enjoyed him. Good location, close to condos. Worked well for us. Might have enjoyed it more if we were out for a night of drinks.

Our group enjoyed our lunch at Tugboat. Close enough to walk to slopes but not as crowded as places right at the gondola. I would recommend the chili and chicken nachos.
