Loved the live Jazz on Saturday. Enjoyed it during Happy Hour and through our dinner. Was far enough away from the Octoberfest goings on in the downtown area that it was not crowded. Fantastic choice of appetizers during the 2 for one at happy hour. Had a super menu. Lamb Chops were cooked to perfection and Chicken Parmesan was reeally... More

After checking in at Mountain Thunder Lodge, the desk clerk recommended Blue Bistro as one of her favorite places to eat in Breckenridge. It is a short walk from the Lodge. The atmosphere was very upscale casual. The staff took really good care of us. Very attentive. We highly recommend the crispy shrimp as an appetizer. One of the most... More

We enjoyed lunch on the lovely patio and managed to dodge the afternoon rain showers. Never had ordered a burger here and was very pleased with the bleu cheese burger. Larger and juicier than Empire burger and just a few bucks more. Don't have to pay extra for fries and they were some of the best!! Love their double fried... More

First time out in 13 years and wanted to visit my favorite restaurant from back then. The Blue River Bistro did not disappoint. Personal service, an updated look and especially the fabulous cuisine were all abundant. I hope another decade plus does not pass before I am able to return to savor this dining experience.

The entire table had burgers and they were great! They quickly accommodated our large party. The only thing I didn't care for was the temp of the restaurant. You could tell the heat was on and it was 60 some odd degrees outside. The server was pleasant and we had a nice meal.

I've been wanting to go here for brunch for awhile now but I am never off on Sundays. Finally I had one off and my boyfriend and I had a wonderful time. We split the sliders a salad and steak and eggs. Add in some mimosas for only 3$ and how could you go wrong? Everything was delicious!

Enjoyed an early Friday night dinner with Jazz right by the window on Main Street. Food was very good. Excellent Choppino and pork tenderloin special. Drinks are pricey. Good service. Made for a very pleasant evening.
