I have been dozens of times and never let down. Very casual, friendly, and fast. Great food and service. The sourdough BLT is fantastic.

Our last morning in Steamboat, with a good snow coming down, we had a great breakfast at The Shack. Simple, tasty, hot and fast. Couldn't ask for more, unless it would be more days in town!

Breakfast or lunch, the Shack is a great feed for a hungry family. The staff always so friendly. A Steamboat standard.

I have been coming to Steamboat Springs on a regular basis for the past 15 years and I always go to the Shack for breakfast at least one of the days I'm visiting. Lots of choices, good food and reasonable prices. I enjoy seeing the same wait staff and locals at the counter year after year.

The shack is not fancy but has great food. While living and working in Steamboat for five years I probably ate breakfast 5 days a week. The food is not fancy, just tasty and filling. Almost always see familiar faces.

We stopped by The Shack for a late morning breakfast. As stated by other reviewers we, too, enjoyed the great breakfast. We had the Mediterranean omelettes filled to the brim with vegetables. The service was very pleasant and fast even though the place was filled.

Fast service, friendly servers, good food, and affordable to boot. Limited choices for the no eggs, no meat crowd but it's a great diner style place.

Made a random pick for a place to eat and it was a good choice. Had a couple of burgers and a BLT. Prices are reasonable for the area and our waitress was friendly. A very nice place.

How great to sit in the sun, to relax and enjoy their sidewalk seating, with a great omelet or salad. The service is quick and friendly. The food is very good. A real favorite.
