Get the half steamboat sandwich combo, you won't regret it. My co-workers and I visit regularly and we always enjoy our meal. It is one of our favorites. Nothing fancy about the property, but it is clean, the staff is friendly and the sandwiches are fantastic.

Unique subs, very good. Limited menu small and quaint atmosphere. Homemade bread and subs are unlike any chain.

Most sandwich shops use quality meats and vegetables. The single ingredient that separates great sandwiches from just good sandwiches is bread.

From the outside, this restaurant may not provide the esthetics to draw you in, but after your first order, you will discover the hidden jem. Please don't let the name conjure thoughts of the other local sub shop that destroys every sandwich in a steamer. Steamboat is far superior. The uniqueness comes from their bread. It is soft, delicious and... More

Not only convenient but great chicken salad and wonderful bread. The sandwiches are large enough to share and the service is down home and friendly.

We were in Powell at lunch time and decided to go to our favorite sandwich shop. I ordered the Club Sandwich. It was loaded with three different kinds of meat, two different cheeses, lettuce, tomato and mayo placed between two slices of the best homemade bread in town. If you go to Powell and don't eat at Steamboat Sandwiches, you... More

Every time we have business in Powell, TN I opt to go to lunch at Steamboat Sandwiches. It is a small family owned business where the owners operate the restaurant and know their customers by name. The atmosphere is not fancy, but the food is outstanding. This time I ordered the Club Sandwich. It had ham, turkey and bacon piled... More

If you have not checked out Steamboats in Powell you need to. Local family owned. Great homemade bread for sandwiches (The Steamboat is my fav), awesome salads, soups, desserts etc. Great value for the quality you receive.
