If you're looking for a place to have a quiet dinner with family and friends, then don't go here. The acoustics are terrible. You can't hear someone sitting across the table because of the noise.

I've eaten here twice now and both times I had a lovely meal of appetizers and wine after hitting the slopes. The atmosphere is cozy and trendy without being pretentious and no need to change out of ski clothes. The service is a little slow but friendly. We had the escargot which completely blew the escargot I had in France... More

My husband and I took our teenage grandchildren to dinner at Blue River this past week and had an amazing time. Even our picky eater enjoyed it. The guitar player was right on, the food was delicious and well priced, and the service was attentive without being intrusive. We enjoyed pasta with seafood, lasagne, and faro with vegetables.Beautiful presentations.

This was my second visit to the Blue River Bistro. My experience this time was vastly different than the first. We were seated quickly, but had to wait for a long time for the waitress to show up. She was very busy and seemed to be overworked. Perhaps short staffed on the night of our visit. The appetizer and kid's... More

We got an early reservation and the place was already hopping. Lots of après skiers in the bar area. The place is small with limited seating. Food was good. My vegetarian son was pleased with his meal too. Service was attentive and the prices were reasonable for a ski resort...$18 to $23 for most dishes. I'd go back.

saw some good reviews of this place so we gave it a try. very small with good ambiance, but not so much for the kids. three of us got the steak, which was bland and lacked flavor for the price. one was never cooked right. Escargot was excellent

Came here for my birthday last year. It was a fun place to go for dinner, although sometimes the music was a little loud for a restaurant. But other than that the food was great, and the huge list of cocktails was very fun to work through!
