Had a wonderful Happy Hour followed by dinner here. Bar was great, bartender (Jason) very skilled and our meal was the best we had in Breckenridge. We had fish (red trout and salmon) and both were delicious. Recommended.

Crazy happy and late hour bar specials, you should be early to get good seats at the bar...love the sleek décor, food pretty good and great service. My only complaint might be all the hard surfaces allow the chatter to become quite noisey. Just go!

Our first night in Breckenridge and what a way to start. Walking around town we walked in and made reservation for the next night, the only time they had available was 9PM, so we took it. The day of our reservation the hostess called us not only to confirm but to also offer us an earlier time as they had... More

They have a great happy hour which has 2-for-1 appetizers and martinis. My group tried all 3 sliders (meatball was our favorite), the fried calamari, and had a couple martinis. Great place to get out of the cold and meet up with friends!

I was ending my last night in Breckenridge on a cold winter night and wanted to get out of the cold and drink something warm. The first place I asked didn't offer it, nor did they seem interested in offering an alternative...so when I walked into Blue River Bistro and asked, they welcomed me and made me the perfect drink!...

It's a really nice middle-ground kind of restaurant. Not a bar serving greasy burgers - but it has a nice bar. Not a high-end restaurant with nothing but duck and lamb. Great menu with lots of options. Waitstaff knowledgeable about the menu items. Had a GF allergy and server was good about ensuring the kitchen was made aware. Food was... More

Make sure you make a reservation so you do not miss out on a wonderful meal here. The cream of tomato basil soup was awesome! My husband had the Beef Tenderloin grilled to perfection and I had the Mahi Mahi also done to perfection. The chef also had no problem with me not having the risotto and substituting grilled zucchini... More

Make sure you have a reservation or it will be hard to get in. Also plan on spending a lot of money for dinner. Food was good and a variety of choices. It is on the far end of the downtown and I prefer to stay in the middle of town. Atmosphere was good and the staff was nice but... More
