Tips for dining with large groups

Wherever you decide to dine with your group, there are a few things to remember. Here are our final tips that will apply to dining in any restaurant in Steamboat Springs. 

  • Plan ahead. Make sure that you call the restaurant well in advance to make arrangements for your group. Depending on group size and the time of year you wish to dine, this could mean contacting the restaurant months in advance. 
  • Be prepared. Get your group organized to make dining easy for both the restaurant and your group. This might mean having everyone look at the menu prior to arriving, having a designated person to pay the check rather than multiple checks, and being ready to order at the same time as a group.
