Top PickMountain Flying Fish

Mountain Flying Fish, Breckenridge’s newest sushi restaurant, has already earned a great reputation among locals and visitors alike. Chef and owner Tetsuo Shimoda brings his experiences in New York and Japan to Breckenridge, creating some of the best raw dishes in town. It has incredible views to match the incredible sushi. Come early, because the dining room fills up quickly at this popular night spot.


Soupz On

Soupz On has been a favorite of both locals and returning visitors to Breckenridge, Colorado for years. Mark & Stacy Anderson have been at Soupz On since 2000.  Their warm soups are made daily with the freshest ingredients. Vegetarian options available and they cater too!


South Ridge Seafood Grill

This place serves up some of the finest seafood in the mountains! Although the menu relies heavily on the freshest seafood, it also includes pasta, hand cut steaks & Colorado lamb. It’s the perfect spot for drinks and appetizers or a multi-coursed dinner served by Summit County’s finest waitstaff & bartenders. Great (daily) happy hour too!



Great atmosphere here! Modis is where the mix of red brick, dark woods and warm light typifies Breckenridge’s evolving aesthetic of Victorian charm and urban swank. It serves an eclectic menu of bistro and Asian-flavored fare, like smoked duck and wild mushroom tart, Thai bouillabaisse and a New Zealand blue nose grouper. Sit in the upstairs loft overlooking Main Street.


The Dredge Restaurant & Bar

A Piece of History! From the early 1900’s up to 1942, there were a total of nine dredges operating in Summit County. Since there was a railroad, there was a reason to build these huge dredges. This two million pound floating restaurant is a replica of one of the largest and longest operating dredges. It was the last dredge operating and stopped forever in the Blue River in 1942. Try the shrimp and crab stuffed red trout or the Elk Tenderloin.


Crepes a la Carte

The secret to Crepes a la Carte is the batter…a secret recipe developed over many, many months of trials and tastings.  Two batters are used: one for savory crepes and one for sweet crepes.  Stop by for a versatile, healthy, hand-held meal any time of the day!


The Motherloaded Tavern

Do you need some TLC? If so, head over to The Motherloaded Tavern and have some of ‘mom’s’ home-cookin’. Whether you’re in the mood for some down home comfort food, a thick juicy steak, Asain seared Ahi Tuna, or a healthy salad with homemade dressing, they’ve got everyone in the family covered. They don’t take reservations, so get there early.

(oh…they have gluten-free options too!)
