From a safety standpoint it’s awesome.

Separate fryers so fries and nachos are good to go for celiacs!

Food wise, their meats can be inconsistent, sometimes it’s too dry. My advice would be to get a variety of meats in case one is meh.

Otherwise, great place!

Amazing! More than half of the menu is clearly labeled gluten free! Everything we ate was great; Dry rub hot wings are the best! Cheesy potato casserole is a tad spicy (has green chilies in it). Service is great, right on the river, owners are GF.

They have a lot of gluten free choices on menu. They have a dedicated frier. Staff seems knowledgeable about celiac precautions. Food is pretty good.

Roll up to the BBQ haven where gluten-free life is less burdensome and instead, well prepared for. Walking into this place, the vibe hits you—bold, vibrant, and full of character. From the get-go, the staff were superstars, not just serving food, but dishing out knowledge on all things gluten-free. They walked me through the menu with the expertise of any well educated staff. Pointing out the dedicated fryers, gluten free bbq sauce and the dreamy gluten-free lava cake. Yep, you heard right—a lava cake that's as safe as it is sinful!

Now, let’s talk about the star of the show—a colossal beef rib that would make any meat lover swoon. Watching it arrive at our table was like seeing the curtain rise on the main act. My partner, usually a tough crowd with BBQ places was thoroughly impressed. I personally loved the brisket, much as I hate the word, it was moist. So, if you're on the hunt for a place that treats gluten-free dining with the seriousness of, well, an owner who happens to be a celiac, this BBQ spot won't disappoint. Great food, educated staff, and a vibe that's both welcoming and wickedly fun.

***MUST VISIT for Celiacs!!*** … we have travelled all over, trying the best of GF from California to NY, and can definitively say Yampa River Icehouse was the most incredible food experience for my family. One of the owners is Celiac, so they have gone above and beyond to offer so many GF options.

The food was outstanding, the options were plentiful and the service was superb in every way. We tried a bunch of things off the menu (given we rarely see so many great options) and would say the wings, fries, chips and queso, nachos with pulled pork/bacon and flourless lava cake were the best we have ever had (Gf or non-GF!).

This is a must visit if you are in Steamboat for an amazing GF meal!

A large portion of the menu is gluten free(and marked as such). Dedicated GF fryer for fries. We alerted staff that one of us had celiac, and they knew to tell the kitchen. I ate the fries, pulled pork, corn bread and cole slaw. No reactions, and it was delicious.

There’s a super good variety of GF offerings here (cornbread, cheesy tater casserole, etc.) but the food was just mediocre. Service was good. You should mention celiac specifically, if that’s your issue, rather than just gluten free. This is much more a bar than restaurant, so the atmosphere is very loud and there were a lot of obnoxious people there when my group was there. We probably wouldn’t go back.

Awesome BBQ and safe to eat. Dry rub on the ribs is on point. Brisket was tasty as well. Dedicated fryer for fries. Ate here twice in 2 days and had no issues. Like other reviews, be sure to remind them not to put bread on plate.

Most of the menu is GF, fries are safe and delicious, cornbread is good and the BBQ sauces are all GF. Be sure to say NO BREAD on your plate as they put a slice on every plate. Brisket was a little dry but overall very tasty.

LOTS of gf options including cornbread and Mac and cheese. No gf cider or beer which was kind of surprising considering everything else they had gf but there were still cocktails. Good experience overall.
