We visited in the off-season and could not find a sushi bar in Breckenridge. Kemosabe's was recommended by hotel staff at our Breckenridge lodge. We were not disappointed! The sushi chef was very friendly, made recommendations and prepared a special role with all the things we love! The "Frisco" roll is amazing! Smoked trout and lemon combined in a delightful... More

We decided on Kemosabe for a tasty treat for our anniversary. When we first arrived at the restaurant the place was pretty busy, but lucky for us two seats at the bar. Even though the place was Jammin, we had several servers come over to check on us and make sure we were taken care of. Normally I'd order a... More

I love this place! Every time a customer walks in they are warmly greeted by the amazingly attentive, Caz. She makes you feel so welcome and offers the best recommendations. On one of my first visits (yes she and the food by the amazing Chef Kevin have turned me into a regular) I mentioned I was Gluten Free and she... More

It was my second time at Kemosabe. Went on October 7 for happy hour after a long flight. Nothing like the Tuna Tower to cure jet lag! The waitress was very attentive and the food was good.

We came here at the recommendation of a local. I'm always a bit skeptical about sushi this far away from big cities (much less an ocean). We were very pleasantly surprised! We came in right as they opened at 4 on a Sunday afternoon and were the only people in the joint while the were opening up. The staff was... More

Found this place after a long day of travel- wanting a lite healthy meal. It was quite a surprise, in that the fish was very fresh - not so easy being so far from the sea. Being from CA and eating sushi often, prices were reasonable. Basic sushi about 50 cents more per order, rolls more like $1.00-$2.00 more. Tried... More

Stopped by Kemosabe for dinner, great service and a good selection of unusual sushi rolls. Try the Frisco featuring smoked trout and lemon zest or the truffle sushi roll with truffle butter, shiitake mushroom and tempura asparagus. Great happy hour specials if you get there early. Will definitely visit again. Service was a little slow but worth it for the... More

My brothers and I took our 60+ year old mom out to try sushi on our Colorado vacation. The menu offers "easy" choices, as well as some more "intermediate" selections. We enjoyed our meal in a private cove on cushions on the floor sans shoes.

A nice little place with some great sushi and other sushi based options. Happy hour prices from 4-6 are very reasonable. Service could be slightly better but nothing major to call out.

Fish is clean and fresh tasting. Squid salad was surprisingly good. Rolls fell short of expectations. They are small and skimpy on fish. Flavors are lacking because the rice is not really prepped sushi rice. It lacks vinegar, is flavorless, and mushy. Service is good. Go to Denver for sushi.
