Try the small plates menu
We sampled all but one of the small plates offerings. The sausage was ok, the other items superb. Wild mushroom pizza was a standout, as we're the lightly battered shrimp with dipping sauce. Great service, and we sat outside on July 4th with one of the patio heaters to warm us up. We will be back and would highly recommend.

Superb Happy Hour
We picked the Hearthstone because it had a great happy hour menu and it was close to the Breckenridge Backstage Theater. I knew they had good food, but we had never been for happy hour - we will definitely be going back! The service was impeccable; just about everyone who worked there stopped by at some point to make sure we were happy. They had a nice selection of HH food, and the prices were excellent (especially for Breck)! Not once did I feel like they wanted us to move on so they could use our table for dinner seating. Would highly recommend; we will most likely be coming back for dinner sometime soon!

One of Colorado's Best
The food is outstanding. I don't often go out to eat unless I find something I wouldn't make in my own kitchen. Hearthstone has unique food that you wouldn't find anywhere else prepared perfectly. Service was solicitous with being overbearing. One member of the party was allergic to MSG and our waiter was very careful about making sure that the cooks understood that. Service was relaxed and they clearly were not in a hurry to get us out. Not having eaten in every restaurant in Colorado I can only say that Hearthstone must be one of the best -- for me it is the best place I've eaten in Colorado. Three visits and each was outstanding.

We had been there for a largish special occasion before, sitting upstairs where you can look out at the town and mountains. That was lovely, as was our July 2013 smaller dinner with friends, when we sat downstairs in more routine restaurant ambiance. Decent wine list, food well prepared and served, staff attentive and pleasant--all around a good experience, and we'll go back when were in Breckenridge.

One of the best in Summit County
Have been eating at the Hearthstone for years. Is always good and interesting food. A must try for anyone visiting Breckenridge.

We were in town for a wedding
We were in town for a wedding and I had asked for a nice table with a great view. We were welcomed and brought to a beautiful table in front of a window with a perfect view! David was our server and was nice, accommodating and his attention to detail was spectacular. The food was amazing and it was a perfect evening. Thank you very much, if we are back in Breckenridge we wil definitely be returning.

Great experience Salty aftertaste
There are a lot of things to love about Hearthstone - the setting, view, ambiance and service among them. The food is generally excellent but both my buffalo and my wife's filet were overly salty. In previous visit the seafood and fish were fine.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a special restaurant
Chose this restaurant because of their "farm to table" cuisine/ special menu offered. Also, their sustainability practices are impressive. Everything was absolutely delicious.

Perfect for our anniversary dinner
We celebrated out 20th wedding anniversary by going to dinner at Hearthstone and we are very glad we did. The food and service were excellent! Our waitress brought us two glasses of champagne "on the house" for our anniversary which was totally unexpected but very nice. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to others and plan to eat there again whenever we are in Breckenridge.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Food and Nice Service
We enjoyed a view of the mountains from our table, which was a few tables from the window. The best seat in the house, if you want a great view, is at the front windows -- windows on 3 sides. Outside would be nice too. Food was very good -- served piping hot. Waitress was friendly and helpful.

A gem in Breckenridge
The restaurant is located on Ridge Street - one block above Main Street, so the setting is quiet. Set in an older Victorian house with superb ambiance and views of the ski area. In front there is a multi-level deck that accomodates many people, but in a private way. We had outstanding Wagu beef and beef filet. The menu had other items that looked interesting, so we will be back. My wife is a bread pudding gourmet, so we ordered their raspberry variety for dessert. It did not meet her expectations - too sour - so we mentioned that to the waitress. The manager talked to us, had the cook staff start a new batch, and took the cost off of the bill. We were highly impressed and highly recommend this establilshment.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a party of three celebrating our 40 wedding anniversary and all of us ordered something different and everything was outstanding. We all debated who had the best. The prime rib was some of the best I ever had and the black truffle creamed spinach was delicious. All meats were served as ordered. The rhubarb crisp was outstanding as was the accompanying ice cream. I would recommend this place to anyone coming to Breckenridge. The service was superb.

We come to Breck often and
We come to Breck often and we all agree The Hearthstone is our favorite. It is so hard to choose from the menu since the regional dishes are always well prepared and delicious. The flatbread with BV goat cheese and figs was great. Our party of 5 chose striped bass, halibut, and buffalo short ribs. Everybody was happy with the choices and we all shared. Chocolate cake was luscious. Can't wait to return. Also, service is always friendly and attentive without being intrusive.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
We eat here every time we come to Breckenridge and recommend it to others. It never disappoints and is one of the highlights of our visit!

This was our fourth time to
This was our fourth time to dine at Hearthstone. We try to dine at least once during our annual stay in Breckenridge. Our guests ate here last year with us and were excited to return. The ambiance is great and the food overall was very good. Two of us ordered the pork chop which was not tender and disappointing. The flavor was good but we would probably not order again. The striped sea bass and halibut were both very good. The special for $30 for 3 courses was an excellent value. The service is excellent. We will dine here again.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lobster was outstanding
loved both the lobster appetizer and lobster special!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved our dinner at the Hearthstone. Our table was quiet and next to a window. (I think a large party had just left that room.) The service was excellent and our waiter was friendly and helpful but unobtrusive. I ordered the shrimp and grits which was delicious (they put the pork belly on the side as I don't eat meat, but it didn't really appeal to my husband. : )
The only complaint that I had is that it was extremely warm in the restaurant. We found it downright hot - Ironic because we wanted to sit outside but were afraid to because the evening was quite cool.
But I'll dress in layers and definitely visit again for an nice meal when we are in the area.

Our treat for the week
There are lots of places to eat in Breckenridge and many of them good. We wanted to have at least one meal out at a classy place with great food. Hearthstone fit the bill and did not disappoint. This restored Victorian building is great. Our small room off the main floor dining room was quiet and not crowded (we dined late. The service was excellent and the presentation was nice. The sweet corn soup was delicious as was the salad we shared. My wife loved the cedar plank salmon and my elk preparation was great. some nights they have a chef's tasting menu which includes some of the regular entree selection. It's a great deal and my wife took advantage of it and the portions are the same as regular entrees. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Classic Breckenridge Dining
Casual, simple elegance in a mountain victorian house. Well thought out remodel of an older home allows the Hearthstone to work well. Views of the mountains from our table, and a surprise glass of our favorite beverage to celebrate an occasion both started the meal off well. The waitstaff is well trained and fast. Service is excellent, and the menu had several surprises - the Elk was awesome, and the Bison braised ribs as well. Everything was well prepared and the wait was short to enjoy our dinner. Folks said it was the best in town, and they are right. Not a fancy dress up place, but casual and nice.It is all you need in a mountain town, and a surprise that you can find it! We will return next visit.... Cash and family from Honolulu.

So good we had to go back!
We dined at Hearthstone on Thursday evening. We we so impressed with our meal that we had to go back 2 days later to try their happy hour & small plates. On Thurs, we could have easily been satisfied with the starters but had already order entrees! My husband and I typically see who "won" for choices. We decided this was a unanimous TIE for both the starters and the entrees. I had the peach gazpacho - amazing with a hint of serrano. My husband had the flatbread with cherries, figs, goat cheese and basil with a surprise of lamb bacon .. whoever heard of lamb bacon??? Amazing. Our entrees were the chicken with coconut/curry sauce...unbelievable and my husband had the braised bison ... didn't think he could top me but it was a tie!

Fine food, great service
Hearthstone lived up,to its reputation. Food was excellent(although portions could have been smaller for our taste). Excellent server.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hearthstone is a wonderful restaurant located in Breckenridge. We have slated it as our need to visit each time we come to Breckenridge. The food is outstanding and their 3 for $30 deal allows you to enjoy a 3 course meal affordably. Food, service, atmosphere are all excellent. You will want to come back again and again!

The Hearthstone-Best in Breck!
The Hearthstone restaurant has been our unchallenged favorite restaurant for about 15 years in Breckenridge. It never fails to provide the best food, best service and the ambience in the old Victorian style house, with many garden terraces, cannot be beat!! This is truly a historical old house, which used to be a "house of sin" many decades ago --and should be the first place anyone goes for an epic dining experience in Breckenridge!
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Restaurant In Breck!
If you are in Breck and want a great meal with excellent service and ambiance, I would highly recommend this restaurant.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant has such a nice feel with its view of the mountains. We ate indoors but the tables outdoors looked great too.

Top off agreat day in Breckenridge
If you are looking for a great meal to compliment a fantastic day this is the place.
Their elk medallions with blueberry demi glaze melt in your mouth. They also feature a reasonable 3 course
selections off their menu.
All great including ease in making reservations.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The staff and ambience here are excellent. The food quality was mixed.
Lamb rack entree cooked perfectly, but the blueberry sauce tasted like it came from a can.
Caesar salad dressing had good flavor, but was watery. Liked the polenta croutons.
Buffalo short ribs were tender, but again sauce was disappointing.
Manchego risotto and chocolate mousse were outstanding.

Our favorite spot in Breckenridge. We go every time we visit!

Of our 5 nights in Breckenridge, this was our favorite. The old home is charming, and provides and intimate dining experience. Jasmine was new to the restuarant and provided excellent service. The phyllo brie with fruit, apricot, Bison Short Ribs, and Prime Rib were well plated, balanced, and nice portions. Food was all fresh, and the flavors both new, and comforting. Please take advantage of the local restaurant promotion that this restaurant participates in.
You won't be disappointed!

A little loud and a tight fit
Given a choice of dining next to a large group (loud) or the window view of the mountains we code the view. After we sat down I could barely move and was hit in the back twice by the person behind me. This all being said would definetly would go back. Food was great and service was great. Great wine list as well
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service, great food
This restaurant is a favorite of mine whenever I am in the Summit County area. The service was outstanding and the food wonderful. We went for my birthday and sat near the front window and watched the snow fall as I sipped a delicious Malbec. I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great, reasonable meal. I do not recommend this as a place to bring small children.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A good Sunday evening dinner
We took advantage of their Dining Passport 2-for-1 entrees. This really helps with entrees mostly priced at $30+. Everything we had was very good. Appetizers: PEI mussels, and goat cheese and mushroom tart. Entrees: ginger scallops, and the prime rib --- really liked the creamed horse radish sauce that wasn't too intense but brought out the flavor of the beef. As is often the case in the mountain towns, none of the desserts appealed to us --- too heavy, too much. But a cappuccino rounded out the evening nicely.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth the trip to Breckenridge
Hearthstone Restaurant had a delicious sounding menu in this mountain town filled with restaurants but it was even better than it sounded. We had elk steak and buffalo short ribs that were both so tender we didn't need forks. The crispy lobster and chile relleno appetizers were delicious. Wine selections by the glass were a cut above what we typically see in by-the-glass options and we enjoyed that too. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable about the food, he made a great dessert suggestion - dark chocolate mousse with a pecan brittle crumble. I can't wait to go back again and am already talking to my husband about finding an excuse to head to Breckenridge!

Stalwart Restaurant in Breck
If you're looking for fine dinning in Breckenridge, CO you can't do better than Hearthstone. There is a reason it has been around for over 50 years, the combination of food, ambiance, and service is second to none. Highly recommended, one of the best in Breckenridge.

Meat appreciation Sunday dinner
We are repeat diners at this stand-out restaurant in a quaint converted Victorian home (and one-time brothel) with views of the Breckenridge ski slopes. With two-for-one entrees in the off-season, we tried their signature elk cutlets with blackberry sauce and the Rosen farm rack of lamb. Both were excellent. If you don't mind passing cutlets across the table to each other, this is a great way to enjoy a comparative meat tasting, which enhanced our appreciation of the unique flavor of the elk and the subtle qualities of the regional lamb. For us, a shared appetizer, splurge on the entrée, and a cappuccino to finish makes an excellent meal. We are grateful they stay open during slow times when so many local restaurants shut down altogether.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We we're not expecting much of a crowd in Breck - midweek during the shoulder season. This restaurant was really busy!!! The food was the reason. The PEI mussels were outstanding as was the WAYGU flank steak. Great pumpkin creme brullee.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great dining experience
Have had dinner here previously. This was another excellent dining experience.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I went for a special occasion and we were not disappointed. The staff took very good care of us and the food was wonderful. My husband is a bit of a "foodie" and had a hard time choosing between the Elk and the Lamb. He chose the Elk and was in heaven! Be sure to save room for dessert - YUM!

Hearthstone never disappoints. The chef is very creative & responsive to special dietary needs. The service is outstanding.

It was a wonderful dining
It was a wonderful dining experience . Our server was knowledgable and friendly. The atmosphere was cozy and comfortable and the food was well prepared and attractively presented. The only thing I would change , is to suggest adding more entree items that were not meat based.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Refined mountain dining
Exceptional service; the presentation was well done; the preparation was perfect and the portions were ideal. We shared a delightful bacon wrapped scallop appetizer; my wife raved about her salmon which was served/cooked on a cedar plank.--it was served medium rare which we requested and the chef nailed it. We were seated in a front room with fantastic views of the town and mountains. My wife enjoyed her wine (we are not oenophiles, but the wine list appeared diverse and tastefully selected to support the entrees) and I ordered a vodka martini from the bar--it was outstanding (so I ordered a second one!).

We've celebrated everything
We've celebrated everything from Weddings, Births and Anniversaries at the Hearthstone. They even reserved a room where we could watch our daughter's wedding. We were unable to travel to the wedding location but the folks at the Hearthstone made the occasion special for us.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Just right, elegant & kid-friendly
We loved this restaurant. The service was attentive and friendly, the food was tasty and well presented. We highly recommend pacing yourself so there's room for dessert. Our son was well taken care of. Couldn't have been better. Well, the steps were a little icy. But otherwise, really lovely.
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice evening at Hearthstone
Dined with my wife and two kids and everyone enjoyed their meals. The Elk was outstanding and somehow the Lamb was even better. Server was good but there was a delay between our completion of our appetizer and the delivery of the main entrees. Will be back.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
While dining at the Hearthstone my girlfriend and I had a wonderful time. I spoke to Colton the Host before I came and told him it was my girlfriends birthday. He set up us with a great table and a really nice server named Daniel. I had a couple of special dietary concerns and Daniel was able to ask the chef to accommodate me and they did without any fuss what so ever. After the meal they brought a very delicious chocolate cake for the birthday which was very nice! I'll always recommend the Hearthstone to any one staying in Breckenridge for an awesome meal.
11/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
