“Absolutely fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

This restaurant is tucked away off the mains strip in Steamboat on 11th, but is worth seeking out no matter how near or far you are from this Rockies ski resort.

We started off with some cocktails made from their home made infused alcohols. The Fiery Tequila is to be contended with, but the quality and variety of drinks makes this a great stop for some drinks before ordering food, as many of our fellow dinners seemed to be doing. I disliked one of the cocktails and they graciously replied it at no charge.

The dishes are a combination of cheese and meat plates, jars of spreads and then small and large plates.

Now, this is the US, so small plates are close to a meal in themselves. The food has a heavy southern influence - crab cakes, pulled pork, shrimp and grits, with some local influence such as buffalo ribs.

Every dish we tasted was delicious - the trick here is that the ingredients are great. We were quickly full up and the wait staff cancelled the dish that hadn't been served without a blink.

But above all, it was the relaxed, friendly service that made the evening. Our waitress was called away half way through the evening to deliver a baby (her day job is as a local midwife), but still stopped by to say goodbye!

As my wife said, if we lived anywhere nearby we'd be in here two or three times a week.

Don't miss.

“Great place for hanging out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

I was fortunate to hit this place recently with a local Steamboat buddy of mine. This was the perfect spot to be able to talk in a fun and social atmosphere. The food was awesome including amazing fries, killer cocktails (the spicy Margarita is outstanding) and all the small plates! Creative menu and awesome bar service. Very well done and glad I got to hit this gem.

“Great food and some of the best cocktails ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

I believe this was our 4th time at the laundry so feeling compelled to write a review as every visit has been so good. The food (mainly small plate style) is inventive and the cocktails are fantastic. The jalapeño marguerita is one of the best I have had (that coming from a Texan).

“Busy, hopping, happening place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

We ate here with a group of friends (6 of us) and although the place was quite busy, the service remained attentive. They have a very good wine selection of good value. As mentioned in other reviews, they have a lot of small plates on the menu, which is nice for tasting different things or for a small snack and a drink. We thought the bison short ribs were especially good. Would like to return and try some other options.

“Not that special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

We had heard a lot of good things about Laundry, but had never had a chance to try it. Now that we have, not sure what all the hoopla was about. They feature small plates, which is exactly what we were looking, nothing heavy. But by small plate, they mean very small but pricey. Everything we tried was tasty, but there wasn't enough, even for small plates. On the drink side, they have a lot of infused liquor that they use in their specialty drinks. We tried several of them, some of which were pretty good, others so-so. The bartender was pretty attentive and great at suggesting drinks until a group of girls came in and sat at the bar. Then our group wasn't near as interesting.

The place is an interesting space and has a feel that doesn't really exist elsewhere in Steamboat, but VERY loud.
