Bear River Bar & Grill is a great place to end your day after being out on the mountain. Its comfortable and has great service. We enjoyed the outdoor seating around the fireplace and the outdoor bar. The menu is basic, imagine bar food, and the food is average. Of course its overpriced bc you are on a ski hill.... More

Took time out from the slopes. Convenient cosy and not pretentious with pricing or service. Service excellent and so organised. The Buffalo Wings perfect, sauce not overwhelming the chicken. My hot chocolate with butterscotch liquor and Irish Cream liquor with whipped cream was brilliant and best drink so far in the USA. The curly fries also just right. For just... More

This place isn't cosy and food there is awful. I ordered chicken wings, tai wrap and soup. Service was not bad.

We had a late lunch here. Service was good, but food was very average. There are not many options at the base. Expected much better for Steamboat.

Typical Steamboat Ski Corp. food. A fair menu and fair service but the food quality is just about the worst I have ever tasted. Similar to institutional food, but isn't that what Ski Corp. is all about. Terrible quality food and double the price.

My family and I used Bear River Bar & Grill as our meeting point on a recent trip to Steamboat to organise everyone going up or coming down from the mountain. Food was the typical fare you would expect - burgers, soup, chilli bowls, loaded nachos, chicken wings, etc and dishes were very reasonably priced for the huge portions that... More

The best thing this restaurant has going for it, is the location. With picturesque scenery of Steamboat Mountain in the foreground, live music most days on the patio, this is a fun place for lunch. The food overall nothing special to write home about but compares to the other offerings nearby. The prices of food also comparable, plan on $60... More

We had a late lunch here one day coming off the slopes, and it was good enough. Bison burger tasted like beef - but is leaner? REALLY good onion rings and sweet potato waffle fries.

Service and food very good! Great drink specials. We tried the club with Brie, burgers and chicken basket, all were excellent.

Ran into Bear after a long day of skiing. Couple of burgers and some chicken tenders. Food was average. Nothing I would get too excited about. The setting at the base of the slopes and watching the evening skiers is nice.

Thank Dan B
