Riverside Restaurants- Get There Before Summer Ends!

August is already upon us. The nights are a little bit chillier, the mornings a little dewier, it means that fall will be here before we know it! But while the days are still warm and the river is still flowing, it’s the perfect time to grab some food and listen to the river roll on by! Check out these riverside restaurants before their patios close and Steamboat turns back into a winter wonderland!


Sake2U has been serving up asian-fusion, traditional American fare, and their “Best of the Boat” award winning sushi alongside the waters of the mighty Yampa river for years! They have a beautiful patio area and a deck above with a great view of Howelsen Hill. There are plenty of opportunities to sit by the river and enjoy some Sake and sushi with friends and family.

E3 Chophouse

Listen to the river flow while you enjoy a glass of wine and some lobster mac and cheese at E3. Famous for their star studded owners—The LaRoche Brothers, Willie Robertson, and Luke Bryan—this is the ultimate spot to enjoy good food and drinks on their gorgeous riverside patio. Get there early for happy hour and soak up the sunshine. If you are lucky, you might even catch some live music!

Aurum Food and Wine

Owner Phil Armstrong and his staff have done an incredible job making this riverfront patio the place to be any night of the week! Enjoy some great live music during happy hour on Tuesday through Saturday nights. After the sun goes down, grab a spot around the fire to keep warm while you finish your dessert. You will be nothing shy of impressed with this fine dinning establishment.
