The Salt Creek Steakhouse
The Salt Creek Steakhouse is located in the heart of Breckenridge's' historic district. Since 1997 we have consistently set the benchmark for great Steaks, mouth watering BBQ (cooked slow and low) fresh fish, poultry and vegetarian dish's. Our restaurant is one of the few quality establishments in town capable of catering in house to large groups and special events. Our extensive, yet reasonably priced, wine list has garnered the Wine Spectator award of excellence every year since 1998. For the finest food, superb service set in an authentic old western style ambiance the Salt Creek Steakhouse is your Breckenridge destination.
We visited the up-stairs portion, (Napper Tandy's Irish Tavern) it was such a fun bar we went back the next night too. They had beer pong on thursday and free drinks for ladies on friday. We enjoyed the pool tables, Foosball and several tv's to watch. A nice hang out bar with great music and decent bar food. They had booth seating and other high-top tables for larger groups. There was a nice size dance floor and even when it was busy, still seemed to have plenty of room to walk around. It wasn't too hole in the wall (like the Gold Pan) or too dance clubish (like Cecilla's), just a very nice mix for all ages of bar hoppers.
It was getting late our first night in town, after reading the menu posted outside, thought we would get a burger. After our party of 10 was seated, we were then told we would have to give up our table b/c the large group who was waiting for the table had finally reappeared. We would have left, that was really unprofessional! But they split up those people and let us keep the table after all. After we had ordered drinks, we were presented menus with no burgers and other higher priced food. We were informed burgers were only served upstairs, at Napper Tandy's Irish Pub. Checked the posted menu when we left and it sure looked like the menu for the whole place---VERY MISLEADING! I had grilled swordfish with rice and vegetables which was just ok. The swordfish was very salty, whole meal was so-so.
My boyfriend and I recently visited Salt Creek for a nice dinner on our last night of vacation. This experience was horrible. The server was new so the manager took our order. My boyfriend ordered a steak and the manager forgot to ask how he would like it cooked and tried to charge us for the potato that came with the meal. My BBQ turkey was as hard as a rock and when we brought it to the attention of the server nothing was done. Our drinks went empty through the whole meal and our bill was presented before we could order anything else. Overall, this meal was the worst we had during our trip
We went to dinner last week. I ordered the JUMBO SHRIMP. When it came out it was very small shrimp, which had been butterflied to try to make them look big. I sent it back without even trying it because it didn't even look good & was definitely not JUMBO SHIRMP. I reorderd the prime rib thinking I couldn't go wrong there. I had ordered medium, it came out rare & was so tough I couldn't eat it. We won't be going back!!
Had breakfast twice.....waitstaff was outstanding the breakfast food selection was great. We really enjoyed the food, fresh and very tasty, and prices were great for a pricey ski town. If you are a geocacher say hi to QueenZelda (one of the waitresses)!!
Our experience was not as good as expressed by others.
The location and ambiance has the ability to be one of the elite in Breckenridge. However the current management is not takng advantage of this.
There is a great wine selection, but the years of selection available do not match the wine list.
The menu selection is a narrow standard steakhouse selection, with some seafood, fish and chicken dishes available.
The steak were dry and under-cooked, the saute'ed mushrooms had too much oil to it, while the potatoes should have been done 5 minutes before.
The steaks are good cuts, but ours ended up dry, rare, and lacking a good pre-aging prep for steaks. The other items, such as chicken, seafood are good.
Overall the restaurant is good, but not for the price being charged. I would expect better for $150.00 for 2 and a child.
party of 4, we all had different dishes--excellent food. Typical bar-type dishes, hot sandwiches, wraps, salads/soups. Good food for the $ Decor is made to look old--stone walls, lots of distressed-beams & post--fun to look at. Didn't try any, but they have many wine selections judging from the wine storage area visible from dinig room.
