I have enjoyed two great lunches at the Blue River Inn this past week. The salads are delicious and filling. The atmosphere is lovely and the decor is modern. So far, it is the best place we've found for lunch in Breckenridge. Will definitely eat there again.

My husband and I dined at Blue River twice during our Breckenridge visit....once for lunch and once for dinner. Both meals were fabulous and the menu offered a great variety of salads and entrees for lunch and dinner. We dined on the patio both times and the ambience was very comfortable and encouraged taking our time to dine. The interior... More

We visited with friends who have a condo here and they recommended it. We were not disappointed. It was busy but we had booked and sat at a table by the window. Water was on the table already when we were seated ( which is one of the lovely touches we have found in USA) and the waiter said he... More

I went to the Blue River Bistro with my husband & two adult sons. We shared three entrees and it was more than enough! The Chicken Parm and Lasagne were fabulous! Love the live jazz music! One of the best places to eat in Breckenridge....no doubt!

We loved our first meal here so much we made reservations for a second night here. Tracy was our server the first visit and Renee was our server the second time and both ladies were incredibly nice, informed and attentive. We will ask for one of them next time we visit. The first visit I had the lemon seared ono... More

My girlfriend and I got into town around 3pm and the condo management company pointed us here for happy hour. They have appetizers buy 1 get one free. And Martinis for the same thing; buy one get one free. Basically you get everything at half price. We sat at the bar and the bartender was super friendly. We got the... More

I was a part of a group of 9 who went to dinner at The Blue River Bistro. It is a very attractive restaurant with a nice menu. They're known for their martinis, and have some unique and tasty choices to select from. It was very loud, which made it difficult to talk. There was a live band performing, and... More

Wonderful cocktails, great food. Had the trout with farro and it was one of the best meals I have had. While it is a white tablecloth type restaurant, we brought the kids and they were good about getting us in and out and had good pasta kid options. Great wine list too. Would for sure reco and go again.

The contemporary atmosphere was quite pleasant. We visited between lunch and dinner and found the service lacking. Our order was slow to be taken, the meal seemed to take forever to be prepared, our beverage glasses never did get refilled, and once the meal was completed we waited and waited and waited for the check and for the plates to...
