Breckenridge dining choices? (dinner only)

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Going to Breck, 1st time, 22nd-29th. How about some dinner place suggestions from people who have had good experiences, please?

No chains, (if there are any there) as I like to spend money at local places.

All ethnic choices ok, as long as the food was good!!

Thanks,

Don't know the name but there is a good Mexican restaurant just off of main street that a local police man recommended. They had great food! Its on the opposite side of the street from like bubba gumps behind I think a yellow building!! Erics is great for a quick bite!

We enjoyed Mi Casa, just off Main Street. I also make sure to have at least one dinner at the Breckenridge Brewery.

Try "steak and rib" on main street. They had terrific food and a great atmosphere. Breck is awesome, you will definitely enjoy your trip.

My favorites are "My Thai" and "Cafe Alpine".

My Thai is wonderful Thai food. Small place, usually
somewhat crowde.

Cafe Alpine is a bit more upscale. I like to sit at the
tapas bar and order a variety of their tapas.

Rasta Pasta is good as well.

For fine dining:
Cafe Alpine (the best we've had in Breck, IMHO)
Hearthstone(several game items and very good)
St. Bernard (Italian with flair..very good)
Blue River Bistro (pasta, ecclectic menu, etc.)
South Ridge Seafood (very good seafood, etc.)

Mexican:
Fiesta Jalisco (across from Bubba Gump's)
Mi Casa

Chinese:
Red Orchid

Casual and good(not to expensive):
Rasta Pasta
Goldpan
Horseshoe II
BBQ place (Salt Creek Saloon)

Bar/food:
Eric's
Breckenridge Brewery

If you don't mind the drive over to Keystone(15 min) and you want a topnotch, out of this world, spare no expense meal: Alpenglow Stube (at the top of the mountain: riding two gondolas to get there).

Spencer's (at the Beaver Run Complex) All you can eat Prime Rib, and it's a nice place that is often overlooked in Breck.

I totally agree with kdskis list..(but need to add one)

Michael's Italian

I think the Steak and Rib was the most expensive average steak I have ever had in Breck. If you are going to spend that kind of money, head to the Breckenridge Cattle and Fish Co.

I agree. Breckenridge Cattle and Fish has better steaks (and elk too) for the price.

One I would like to add for VERY good and inexpensive Italian(somewhat limited menu and small) is Giampietro's. It's across the street and on the corner that's closest to Eric's. I think it's the corner of Main & Ski Hill rd or Main & Four O'clock rd.

I was out there a few weeks ago. One of my favorite restaurants from the trip was actually about 15 minutes away in Dilon called the "Dilon Dam Brewery". If you enjoy brewpubs and good food, deffinetly check it out.

Best pizza in town!

Can't really recommend the Red Orchid though...had some less than exciting meals there and the food was always cold too.

If you're out in Dillon, check out Pug Ryans: yummy!

A hearty seconding of South Ridge Seafood. Six of us dined there and everyone raved about their meal. The PEI mussels in Thai coconut broth were particularly memorable (it's an appetizer).
post #15 of 20
My two favorites are Jalapenos and Angel's Hollow. Both are a little off the beaten path, and a little bit hole-in-the-wall-y (a good thing the high-crowd times), but I've always had great meals. The salsa bar at Jalapenos is to die for.

Hearthstone and Alpine for sure. Hearthstone has some great deals on wine as well. If you are into game meats, elk, venison and such, make this a "don't miss"

Go with kdskis2's suggestions. They're right on the money. I'd also add Kenosha Steakhouse.

Breck Brewery and Mi Casa suck. You can throw a stone in any direction and find better places.

Watch out for the ice on the sidewalks though.

Sorry kcmcleary, just couldn't resist.

:

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." (Edmund Burke)

So much of the history of the struggle between good and evil can be explained by Edmund Burke's observation. Time and again those who profess to be good seem to clearly outnumber those who are evil, yet those who are evil seem to prevail far too often. Seldom is it the numbers that determine the outcome, but whether those who claim to be good men are willing to stand up and fight for what they know to be right.

And if you ski here in the midwest you know what evil ice really is!!!! We don't call our local hill iceburg (Canonsburg) for nothing

i'd also say Giampietro's + mi casa(its decent. good mexican food 4 colorado.)
hate to say it as i am probably one of the few regular buyers of their beer in houston, but brecks brewery restaurant is overrated, go to erics.
