This is one of the best restaurants in Breckenridge. FYI the review I gave on the Blue Stag Saloon was really for this restaurant, sorry about that. Highly recommend this place. I did have dinner at the Blue Stag Saloon and it was fine and the service was very good. but this place is a step above.

We love this restaurant. They serve delicious and varied entrees. We happened to dine the night they were offering Northern Pike, and it was delicious! Not always easy to get that fish. When in Breckenridge, do try this restaurant!

Our group of five all enjoyed our lunch entrees. We had a table outside which let us enjoy the gorgeous summer day. The indoor decor was very pretty without being fussy.

We were looking for some healthy, lighter fare and BRB hit the spot. Daughter and I were able to share the kale quinoa feta salad as appetizer and the cioppino entre. Both had complex and refreshing flavors, lovely presentation. Warm bread was accompanied by fragrant olive oil & balsamic vinegar to which our waiter added freshly ground pepper. We couldn't...

We choose to celebrate here because of the fabulous food and great staff that is knowledgable yet not overly intrusive. I love this place and it can be a bit loud.

Very good dining place in Breckenridge. Usually crowded and a bit loud, but very good food. We haven't found anything we haven't liked. Service is good and if the weather is right, outside dining is perfect.

We were looking for a nice restaurant where we could enjoy the wonderful weather outdoors, and Blue River had a great little patio out to the side. We both ordered the soup of the day which was chicken curry and it was only ok, I thought. The broth seemed a little too thin and the chicken was in little cubes.... More

The martinis are half price, as are the appetizers, and they are both great! The ravioli is not to be missed.
