A classy appetizer menu with a variety to spark interest, this place couples the good food with a reasonable wine list. Just about what you would want at every price level. The ambience adds to the evening. Will go back to consider a higher rating.

We ate at Blue River Bistro the first time for Mother's Day Brunch, 2017. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. Our party of 6 plus a 6 month old baby received efficient courteous service and a wonderful meal. We will definitely return.

Arrived early and were seated without reservations. Nice modern atmosphere. There was some pressure to buy wine by the bottle.

It's a big of a walk from the town center, but worth it. Everything we got was excellent. The restaurant was fun and lively, service was also pretty good even though they were crowded. I would definitely go here again.

I have a group coming to Breck in January. Would it be possible to have dinner with you as a group? We have around 25 people and would like to pay around $45 per person not including alcohol. We will preorder from your set choices.

Hi Kathy, I see that you attempted to inquire if you could visit as a group. I wrote my review but you need to contact them direct to find out how many people they accommodate! Brick is beautiful!
Do you allow well behaved dogs on the patio?
