Nice restaurant! Good food, nice atmosphere. Our server was very nice. Yelp says it is not kid friendly. I disagree! Most of the restaurants have New American cuisine, this restaurant has very recognizable dishes ( pasta, chicken, steak, kids menu, etc.). There were many families eating while we... read more

Food was good, service poor, atmosphere non existent, loud. Menu covers all the bases-seafood, steaks, pasta, pizza-nothing excelled and nothing horrible. Would not return.

We were there on martini night and the bar was rocking. The dining experience was enjoyable and a good value.

People were very nice and the service was excellent. Good music too. Would be good for an evening of apps and drinks. But the food was just not good and that is what I rank the most important.

There are lots of so-so, bordering on crappy restaurants in Breck. Blue River Bistro is a cut above. The decor has recently been updated and it's beautiful, plus they have a lovely outdoor patio. Set toward the beginning of the main street, it's quieter than the majority of eateries. The food was wonderful and the service was very good. They... More

Dined at Blue River during the 4th of July weekend. We both ordered salads - Blue River Bistro salad and the Cobb salad. Both were excellent. The wine list (by the glass) is generous as is the wine list by the bottle. While we were glad to have a leisurely lunch on a pretty day, it took over 30 minutes... More

Good place to eat but the place is so busy I felt "pushed" out. Nothing "relaxing" about it after a long day of skiing. Food was good but not excellent.

In our opinion, this is one of the more upscale restaurants in Breckenridge and is located a long walk on the northern end of Main Street. We didn't have a reservation, but arriving at 5:30 didn't feel it'd be much of an issue. We were seated right away, but in the bar area (even though the rest of the place... More

Made a reservation the day before. Inside was hot, so requested an outside table. We arrived the next day; inside very warm, but they said there was no outside seating for 45 minutes. We decided to wait. An a outside table came available in about 25 minutes. Now to the food and service... Wonderful !! We were celebrating a Birthday,... More
