Alot of menu selections and our appetizer and pizzas were fabulous. It was a happening place this Wednesday evening and lots to watch on the many tv's. There was a wait list but it seemed to move through fairly quickly. Definitely worth the wait but many 2-seat and 4-seat tables so we were lucky and were able to sit right down. Bring your appetite!
Favorite Dish: We ordered 2 pizzas and everything about them was amazing. They offer 4 types of crust (5 counting the gluten free) and our white and white with garlic had an amazing flavor. The sauce is really good and all the toppings are so fresh and generous. We selected our own toppings but their specialty pizzas were very interesting with names such as Coney Island, meatball, Greek, Thai and olive oil pizzas.
Boasting windows that overlook the ski mountain, this quaint restaurant was cozy and romantic. The wait staff was phenomenal and the bus boy was my fave!
Favorite Dish: I had a tasty lasagna and I also sampled my husbands white lasagna (alfredo sauce instead of marinara with seafood) Both were wonderful. The tirimisu was perfect and the cannolis were decadent. For a meal for 3 with cocktails, dessert, appetizer and coffee was around $80
Bubba Gump's has a friendly, casual feel. It's a busy, noisy restaurant, not somewhere to have a romantic dinner with that special someone. They have a wide variety of dishes, seafood and other, on the menu. The food has a New Orleans flair. The wait staff is quite entertaining and quiz patrons on their knowledge of the movie Forrest Gump.
Favorite Dish: Lot's of shirmp dishes at Bubba Gumps.
A little bit loud for sure, part of the restaraunt is a bar in which a lot of people come to drink at after a long day of skiing. Overall a good place. You get bread with olive oil as a free appetizer if you don't want to splurge for anything else.
Favorite Dish: I had the spice rubbed mahi mahi and it was great, although to cocunut risotto cakes that came with it weren't good. I would recommend it, especially if you like cocunut.
This place is right at the lift, but its hidden around the corner. Skip all of the outdoor grills and other nastiness and find this place for a good lunch right at the slopes.
Favorite Dish: They have a buffet that has a good selection and the clam chowder was good (for a landlocked locale that is).
Somewhat low-key, laid back ambience for a steakhouse, but that seems to be the norm in Breck. Nothing really outstanding either positive or negative about the ambience though so no big deal either way.
Favorite Dish: We all had the combo appetizer which had a very good mixture of tasty items. Everybody that got steaks were very happy with the meal. Mine was a crab filet which I can say was excellent. Highly recommended.
Good wine selection as well.
Food was so/so, but they are supposed to have a good comedian that works quite a bit. It did seem cheaper than most places around though.
Favorite Dish: My wife and I both had the fish and chips. It was okay but nothing great.
Great News! The Horseshoe II restaurant is under new ownership. Eric and his partner's from Downstairs at Eric's have purchased the long-time Breckenridge restaurant and plan on making changes/improvements to it over this summer (2007). Look for a much improved, more upscale restaurant with a new name. You can expect the same great service and management as Eric's place, but don't expect the same food or atmosphere. They're not planning to compete with themselves.
Favorite Dish: Too early to tell.
Eric's is a great place to hang out and watch the game, or bring the kids to enjoy reasonably priced good food. There's an arcade outside the seating area to keep the kids busy if they won't sit still at dinner.
Favorite Dish: For the carnivores in your group - you've got to try the baked wings appetizer. They're spicy - but not so messy that you need to go take a bath in the restroom sink to clean-up. For the fish eater - try the Blackened Tuna sandwich. Of course the burgers are great too!
great vib and feel to the place, friendly staff, a bar downstairs and up, excellent food
Favorite Dish: the burgers here are huge and are excellent, they also have guinness on tap , but if you order a pitcher of guinness you will get strange looks from EVERYONE there ... then when we ordered a 2nd one with our meal people started asking us where we were from , when we said wisconsin they were like ohhh that explains it. the bar tender said he had never poured a pitcher of guinness before so we kinda laughed at that, but this is a great place to eat and have a pint or two
great food, you can get it to go if you want, and overall great place to just hang out for a bit
Favorite Dish: try the chicken ranch pizza it was really good, sounds weird but hey it was delicious! they ahve some micro brew on tap also
this place is great, has a nice bar area great seating all over, and some of the best food in breckenridge. its kind of like a sports bar with lots of tv's all over and if a game isnt on then they play extreme sports videos. very cool place even to just hang out and have a few beers at the bar and order a pizza at the bar.
ohh and they have some great beer from micro breweries all over colorado and western states... just dont challenge people from wisconsin to a drinking contest, like some texans did... you will not win
also remember taht one beer feels like more then just one at altitude so with breck being at 9,600 feet 2-3 beers feels more like 4-6 for most people... just not as much for wisconsinites as we found out
Favorite Dish: the pizza here is amazing, and so are their burgers... but try the greek pizza there, it had olive oil, olives, dried and undried tomatoes, motz cheese and anouther type of cheese from greece (and maybe a few other things i dont remember) it was some of the best pizza ive ever had (and ive been all over italy) so id highly recommend that
Cozy, dimly lit restaurant with a large menu selection. My husband and I just wanted to sample several things so we ordered 2 appetizers, 2 salads, split a steak and ordered dessert and after dinner drinks.
Upstairs they have a happy hour every day from 4-7. 42 wells and beers with 1/2 price appetizers.
Favorite Dish: The crab cakes were good, but I prefer mine crispier on the outside. The potato skins were basically two huge potatos cut in half-massive. We split a ribeye and it was cooked to perfection and was enough for two people. Split some kind of monstrosity of a chocolate cake and coffee, Baily's and Frangelico.
This whole meal with 3 beers was $82
Laid back vibe, diverse menu selection and a decent beer menu (120 beers) makes this a great place for dinner. The prices are some of the best you will find in Breckenridge.
Favorite Dish: I had a whole wheat crust pizza with basil, garlic and tomatos. Being a girl from New York and a pie snob, I was very impressed with this pizza.
This is typical Irish Pub - very good place for late dining (open till 2am) and not pricey. Beer selection is OK, even though I would expect more beers on tap. Typical Irish menu including shephard's pie, beef stew, sandwiches, etc...
Entries are very generious - I could hardly finish my sandwich+french fries.
Favorite Dish: Shephard's pie - generous portion, very tasty, beef is really good
