Old Town Pub & Restaurant: Restaurant Review
June 16, 2009
In passing the 100-year-old bar, bullet-hole-riddled telephone booth and vintage ski photos on our way to our table, it became clear why the Old Town Pub and Restaurant is a true part of Steamboat Springs history.
Yes, the Pub building has come a long way from its historical roots (including, but not limited to, a luxury hotel, hospital, general store and movie theater). Today, it’s a popular restaurant serving excellent Rocky Mountain fare and rockin’ nightlife to boot.
We started our Sunday-evening meal with a bottle of Lindemans Shiraz, Fried Mushrooms, and Mozzarella Sticks. The mushrooms were delicious. The mozzarella sticks were not distinguishable from mozzarella sticks anywhere else, but who tinkers with fried cheese anyway?
The Pub proved to be quite kid-friendly as well, with our server bringing crayons and jokes to our toddler as necessary.
As for the main course, I ordered the Regular Cut Prime Rib ($24.95, 12 ounces). It came prepared as-ordered (medium-rare to rare), with our server having courteously confirmed with the chef prior to my order. The garlic mashers that accompanied the cut were sinful, and the fresh vegetables (green beans and yellow squash) topped off the deal.

What my husband ordered, however, is what the Old Town Pub is really known for – burgers. His Buffalo Burger too came as ordered, medium-rare, and, combined with the generous serving of seasoned French fries, it was good he brought his appetite. We ended the night with a brownie sundae (for our daughter, of course), which was amazing.
If you are looking for good, quality food in a fun atmosphere, then Old Town Pub fits the bill. Bring the kids for dinner, or tear up the dance floor at night either way, you’re sure to win.
The Old Town Pub is open for lunch and dinner daily, from 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. The bar is also open late night 7 days per week. Lunches range in price from $7.50 to $21.95; Dinners range from $10.95 to $27.95.
