ZEST: Saddles

I'm hungry.






Chris McGaw

Summertime dining doesn't get any better than Saddles at the Sheraton Steamboat Resort.

Nestled against the base of Mount Werner, the restaurant offers some of the best views in town. The green grass-covered slopes of Mount Werner accompanied by the flowing sound of Burgess Creek provide the perfect backdrop for your summertime outing.

Expansive views and the premier mountain location, make Saddles the hot spot for lunch, dinner and late night lounging. It's also a great social space to meet for specialty drinks, beer and wine after a full day of mountain activities. For the kids, it also offers a game room with shuffleboard, billiards and foosball.

When it comes to dining, Saddles relies on the expertise of executive chef Scott Przymus, who brings a Colorado-based theme to his concoctions, from succulent appetizers to scrumptious entrees.

"We incorporate seasonal fare into a variety of our dishes throughout the year," says Przymus, touting everything from Palisade peaches to local artisan cheeses.

Przymus also works with local farm co-ops for sourcing, as well as local ranches for such meats as beef, elk, buffalo and venison.

"We utilize a lot of great Colorado products in our dishes," he says.

Lunch starts daily at 
11 a.m. with happy hour following from 4 to 6 p.m. and dinner going late until 11 p.m. All menus serve an array of shared plates, small plates, sandwiches, salads and entrees.

"It's a great spot, with a great location, staff and ambiance," Przymus says. "And the food is even better."
