Disclosure: My meal at Creekside Cafe was covered by Steamboat Springs Chamber. All opinions are my own.

Finding new and unique places to eat while traveling is a passion of mine. I prefer to stay away from franchises or big box restaurants while on vacation. The local Mom and Pop shops always seem to have the tastiest food, and the best service.
