What in Steamboat are you searching for?
If there is a man with a culinary vision in Steamboat, it could be Rex. Purveyor of 5 diverse restaurants in town; Rex's, Mazzola's, Big House Burgers, Lil' House, and The Laundry, every establishment excels in it's own genre. I would normally be a bit weary about going to a restaurant at a Holiday Inn, but Rex's is definitely the exception. A fun place for happy hour, and a menu to satisfy just about anyone. I am particularly fond of their mac and cheese, and their pizza is world class.
Rex's Happy Hour is a weekly destination for our family. With half-price apps and pizzas, it's one of the best deals in town. Everything on their regular menu is consistently very good. Rex has a knack for putting a yummy gourmet twist on comfort foods like grilled cheese and tomato soup and honey cornbread. They also use quality meats and other ingredients. Salads are excellent. I recently had the Sonoma Flatbread for lunch and was very pleased. I also love the Edamame Hummus for an appetizer. The atmosphere is awesome, especially on the patio in the summer.

Rex's is simply a fantastic place. Very consistent, tasty, homemade food with excellent service for the right price. There really isn't a better place in town for the value you get. I've eaten countless meals during breakfast, lunch and dinner here and will continue to do so. Happy hour rocks every night and one of the best kept secrets is the patio in the summer, which is even better with live music. Rex did a fantastic job with this place - who knew any of us would go to the Holiday Inn to have such a great meal. Chicken Fried Chicken rocks as do many of the creative specials. We find the same great consistency, service and value in his other two restaurants - Mazzola's and Big House.
