“Not one of my favorite places in Breckenridge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

I occasionally have lunch w friends when I visit Breckenridge. It is pleasant setting on a sunny day and easy to get to. Very casual and that's what we like about it. Kind of kick back. It's not one of my first choices in Breckenridge but it does have a good reputation and my friends like it. I am a vegan and it's not easy to find something suitable on the menu. Personally, there salads are just ok, a few spoiled leaves, not tossed well. I have never done dinner but I hear very good.

Blue River had been recommend by someone from the area. It did not disappoint our expectations. Food was flavorful and the microbrew was smooth. Atmosphere had both locals and visitors. Would definitely go back next time we are Breck.

“Late night happy hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

We went after seeing a play at the theatre. It was crowded and loud, but calamari was good and crispy. No wine at HH prices, only sangria, which was good.

“Amazing date night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

I made reservations based on reviews on TripAdvisor for my husband and me while my mom and dad watched our son. In particular, our server, Renee was excellent, she advised regarding the special that evening which my husband ordered and it was the perfect portion and right mixture of favors. They offer many gluten free options and the chef is amenable to making other things gluten free if possible. Wine options were plentiful and a great atmosphere. Perfect date night.
