This food is good for the price, but there are much better restaurants in the area. Desserts had little taste. Like they had just been thawed after a long time in the freezer.

The steaks were perfectly prepared.

Dined on March 17, 2016

I had the oscar option and was not disappointed. My only negative remark is that we were charged for extra bearnaise sauce. For the prices of the steaks and options an extra bit of sauce should not have cost us more. The restaurant is small and had a tendency to get rather loud, but my family didn't mind. Several children were in the restaurant but all were entertained and only 1 child was screaming when we seated, but he too was quickly redirected and we had a very pleasant evening.

Dined on March 9, 2016

Very casual, but high end steakhouse fare. My party of four, which included a 12, 11, and 9 years old, had three filets and elk tenderloin and all plates were completely empty when done. The filets were listed as 8oz but seemed more like 10s. Peppercorn disc is great, so ask for a side dish even if it doesn't come with the entree. My boys insisted that I write a review stating salt creek steakhouse is AWESOME.

Vegetarian options

Dined on March 6, 2016

This place is known for their meat. I, however, ordered vegetarian and was very disappointed. The menu describes it as Butternut squash, kale, and grilled tofu. What showed up was maybe 2 teeny slivers of squash, a miniscule amount of kale and an entire block of cubed white, NOT grilled tofu. Flavoring was good but disappointing.

Outstanding Dinner - Our Best In Breck this Season

Dined on March 2, 2016

We weren't impressed with the dining scene in Breck until we got to the Salt Creek Steakhouse. This was by far our best meal in town last week. The Elk came highly recommended thus we had it - It was outstanding; tender, melt in your mouth, cooked to perfect and full of flavor. We shared the mesclun greens salad with cranberries and goat cheese - it was huge (definitely plenty to share) and also outstanding. Our one downside of the evening was that we selected a bottle of wine from the list but a different (younger) vintage was served. We were given a discount on the bottle, but it is a pet peeve of mine that happens more often than it should. Overall, Salt Creek Steakhouse was outstanding - we will return on our next trip to Breck!

Perfect ski town steakhouse atmosphere just off of main street. All of our tables dishes were executed well ranging from seafood to steaks to barbecue. Service was professional and welcoming with complete knowledge of the menu. Our server deftly handled "that guy" at our table with the heightened sense of cocktail induced charm.

Best restaurant in Breckenridge

Dined on February 26, 2016

We always eat at Salt Creek when we come to Breckenridge! Our server last time was Rachel C, and she was incredible! She helped us out when ordering specialty hot drinks and she was very attentive. Our food was incredible. We love the BBQ, and we tried the delicious steak this time too! This BBQ is some of the best I've ever had.

Breck Ski Trip Anniversary Dinner

Dined on February 25, 2016

Salt Creek was great! We coincided our ski vacation with a late anniversary dinner, and it was perfect. Even with a ski injury, we had a great time :-) Nice, relaxed atmosphere, which suited us perfectly. We'll definitely go back on our next trip to Breck.

Amazing experience

Dined on February 22, 2016

My friends and I wanted steak during our snowboarding weekend and our search led us to the Salt Creek Steakhouse. We could not have been happier with the trip. Everything we ate was incredible. The filet that I ordered was the best and most tender steak I have ever eaten. We will definitely be going back during our next trip to Breckenridge.

Dissappointed

Dined on February 21, 2016

We've been to Salt Creek on several occassions. The last couple of times have been somewhat dissappointing. The food is slipping in quality and the prices are ridiculous for the portion size. This past visit was soooo loud. there were 3 tables of 8 and a table of 20+ crammed into the space. It really was a hazard to be in the restaurant as the only way out was barely passable for a single person. Glad there wasn't a fire that night. Service was rushed and unfriendly. Yes, it's ski season. But with a $150 bill for 3 adults and a child, I expect a better interaction. I'm moving them off my fall back list.

We went on Valentine's, so even though we had a reservation we had more than a 30 min wait for seats. Once we got our table, everything came out quickly. I had the petite filet. It was slightly charred on the outside to my liking but still tender. The best part was the white chocolate crème brulee for dessert.

Could do better

Dined on February 12, 2016

Had a 7:15 reservation; wasn't seated until close to 8. Another party came in that was 8, but had dropped to 6... they were seated in front of 2 other groups of 6 also with reservations. Not the best way to manage. Pros: + Not very expensive + Good location + Salad was good + Manager tried to make it up to us by giving us a free round of drinks. But this wasn't communicated very clearly, so caused more issues. Cons: - Customer service wasn't the best. Hostess was not managing guests well - Food was OK. Steaks were dry (at medium rare!), and not very well seasoned.

Terrible

Dined on January 17, 2016

If I could give it zero stars, I would. It took more than 7 minutes after we sat down to have the first person stop by and offer water. The server would bring the food and disappear. My friend never got his beer and the server had the nerve to ask if he ever got it after we asked for the check from the manager. The creme brûlée was awful. The creme was gritty and the oil had separated from the cream. Maybe simmer longer before baking?? The loud and obnoxious table next to us had two servers waiting on them for a party of 6. It was ridiculous.

We were looking for a real American experience. Food and ambience wise and we were not disappointed. The 3 meats bbq plate was amazing. The eye fillet was tasty and the kids pork ribs were devoured by the boys. The staff were really friendly and the service was prompt. I would recommend for a mid range restaurant. We will be back.

Salt Creek Steakhouse Food Fantastic

Dined on January 2, 2016

This was my husband's and my third visit to the Salt Creek Steakhouse and the first that we took our teenage children. The service was fantastic, not only from our waitress but from everyone that would walk by and take our plates when things were empty, drinks. It ran like a very well oiled machine. The food is phenomenal. We had a range of meals from salmon, trout, ribeye and filet. My 16 year old son said it was the best filet he had ever eaten and can't wait to go back next year.

Outstanding family steakhouse - PLUS

Dined on December 30, 2015

Our first ski vacation to Breckenridge, most every restauranton the strip was long sold out. Salt Creek had a res avail around 5:30 PM Christmas week, so we nabbed it. Excellent dinner. Truly exceptional service (Nicole). I mean EXCEPTIONAL Great sports bar upstairs with two foosball tables and $4 pitchers during happy hour. Our boys especially loved the Filet Mignon and the Simpsons pinball machine. I dont know how fantastic the Blue Stag is, but this place is a gem. Go.
