Sunpie’s Bistro is “your typical New Orleans bar and sandwich shop”. Located on the bank of the Yampa river, Sunpie’s has outdoor dining and drinking on a huge backyard lawn. In the winter, their 30 seat bar, fireplace, and disco ball keep the party going when the temperature drops. The famous Hurricane drink at Sunpie’s is one of the strongest in town, and it goes great with their menu of sandwiches that includes Muffaleta, Cochon De Lait, Shrimp Po-Boys, and more. Come to Sunpie’s for great food, great views, and a happening atmosphere.
Sunpie’s Bistro is open from noon – close, Thursday – Sunday in the winter, and from noon – close, Tuesday – Sunday in the summer.
I think one star is giving this bar a little too much credit. The building is too small to cater to the business's needs, the place is always so packed its impossible to do much but stand body to body with the person you arrived with while people are forced to shove their way past you. Their tiny bathrooms are disgusting and not well kept, and getting to them from the extremely long line that is constantly piled up is a hassle. I had a particularly horrible experience this past weekend where my friend and I were approached by a large group of men as the bar was closing and upon saying horrible things to us, one of the men hit my friend in the face when she defended the two of us. The entire thing was witnessed by the bouncer, who was just feet away and did nothing. When the manager was contacted he stated he would "rather not get involved." If you want a good experience, do not go to Sunpie's. Steamboat is full of authentic and fun bars that provide great drinks, service, and that take care of their patrons upon becoming a customer. Sunpie's is not one of them. Walk across the street and go to Carl's.
