Food was good but iced tea looked
very murky, almost like brown tomato juice."

Several open tables when we got to
dredge. Told we would have to wait 25 minutes and we should have made make reservations due to it being a busy time of year. Sat for 10 minutes. Still 4 open tables. Went online to make reservation through open table. Showed res. to lady at front- seated right away with snippy comment coming from manager. Something like don't be surprised if you have to wait for service- we are really busy."

I really should have heeded the
warnings in other reviews. We couldn't get a reservation at one of the better places in Breck: Modis, Hearthstone, Ember, etc., so thought the Dredge would be good enough. The food was good, not great, and the service was really inconsistent. We waited over an hour for our food, and the waiter definitely accommodated us with taking a few items off the bill, because it was so slow. That was at least laudable. Another example is receiving a notification a couple of days after from OpenTable saying that I didn't honor my reservation. The hostess looked like she couldn't be bothered and am not surprised she couldn't get that entered in. Way overpriced too. I should have trusted my gut and went somewhere else."

Cool theme but our overall
conclusion was that they were just going through the motions. Salad without dressing and server delivered to our table and admitted it wasn't as asked but didn't have kitchen correct. Kids Mac and cheese the worst microwaveable kind ever! Even my 7 year old said they couldn't have added some real cheese at least. Evening ended when another server practically came to the table and dropped the bill down and said our waiter was too busy to bring the check. We were a table of 9 with no thanks for coming in. Food quality and service were both embarrassing for the prices being charged."

Nice location. Crab cakes were
good though not fresh, they were previously frozen. Bread was really good. Ordered a salad which was totally forgotten. My $29 filet was ordered medium, brought out well done. Sent back, a new filet appeared 3 minutes later which was also overlooked but only to medium well this time though the edges were to well done to be eaten. I left half of it as I could only eat the center. The veggies on the plate were seriously limp and soggy. With so many choices in Breck, chose another place unless this is your only option."

we go to the dredge each year . .
. it's off the list. the last 2 years - food quality has declined. The wait at the table for the food to come out has been about 45 mins. Waitress forgets to bring half the party's drinks. They have ginger ale listed on the menu . . but they don't have it. Any one of these things on their own would be fine . . . just a lot of little things add up to a not so good experience. Too many other good places around town."

This was the only place we could
get a reservation. Now I know why ."

My filet was tough, the vegetables
came out cold. It was very quiet because the place was almost empty. Maybe the locals know something. The waitress was great and the service was good. The others in our group of nine were not impressed with the food."

Excellent choice: very good food,
superb attention by our waiter and very honest price. What else can one ask for?"
Dined on 3/6/2014
Not the best place in town but
food was acceptable and service friendly."
Dined on 3/6/2014
the dinning room and service was
great We had the flat iron steak and the crab legs (small portion) Both were very good but with a glass of wine this meal was just about $90 there are plenty of other places in the area that serve great food for much less. Sometimes you will find staff handing out 10% off coupons on main st. So keep an eye out."
Dined on 3/3/2014
Think they may have been short
staffed but appetizer was forgotten... Many dishes came out wrong... And service was overburdened so we could not get anyone's attention for most of meal. Foot was ok, some good but that's about it, nothing very special about it at all. Bathroom out of toilet paper. Neat place but they need to step it up, I would not visit again."

Enjoyed reading about the history
of the establishment. This was the only restaurant that could accommodate our group of 8 on a Saturday night. The food was good, but the service was poor. I don't know if they weren't staffed properly or we just had an incompetent waiter. We waited 20 minutes for our order to be taken. We ordered wine with dinner, but when the meal was delivered we were informed that they no longer had the wine we ordered. We decided to each have individual glasses of wine. We were finished with our meals before the wine was served. When we asked to pay the bill, it took another 20 minutes for the waiter to process."

We were reticent to have dinner
here as it was the only restaurant we could get a reservation at 7:00 on a Friday evening. Read the good, the bad and the ugly reviews and decided to give The Dredge a chance. We were absolutely delighted by the meal. Filet Mignon was tender and juice, Buffalo Sirloin was delicious and the crab legs were meaty and moist. Would definitely go back on our next visit to Breckienridge."

Nice happy hour with half price
apps and a variety of drinks to choose from. Had the artichoke dip - delicious and filling. We then went down to the dining room and had dinner. The tables were covered with paper and had crayons so we had tons of fun playing games. The food was delicious, had a chicken sandwich. I couldn't eat much because I was so full from the appetizer, but still delicious. Nice atmosphere. It was winter time so you could't see the restaurant surrounded by water but I can imagine it's beautiful in the summer.Would definitely recommend to others."

Went to The Dredge for a
birthday/Valentine dinner. The waiter was very engaging and knowledgeable about the specials and menu. We ordered appetizers (crab cakes and spinach artichoke dip), salads, and entrees (steaks). The flow and flavors of the dinner was spot on. Look forward to dining at The Dredge again."
Dined on 2/15/2014
We had a party of seven for dinner
and mix results across the board for food and service. Why I named the review Nickel & Dime you was they wanted to up-charge you for every addition or change in the order. We ordered Pita Spinach Dip and it came with very few Pita chips. We finished the Pita chips and there was plenty of dip left . We asked for more Pita and it was an up-charge of $1.50 per Pita. "PER PITA-REALLY". Unfortunately the waiter did not make you feel welcome and it is what it is....... Overall the restaurant was average and it tells me a lot about the restaurant when Open Table has multiple time slot available on the day of reservations for every time. Great history for the restaurant and fun to know about but eat else where."

We made reservations for
Valentines Day dinner for four before we got to Breckenridge. After speaking to three locals, no one recommended the Dredge, unless you are going for a burger and apps upstairs at the bar and for Happy Hour. Too late to change reservations. The menu is mostly steaks, three of our party got them. All very good and perfectly cooked. I got the seafood pasta, and it was not to my taste. There was only one chicken option on the menu, and that dissappointed me (I'm not a big steak eater). The bread brought out before dinner was warm and yummy, we all had salads - the walnut blue cheese was delicious even though the dressing was a little weak. Triple Mouse desert and Frangelico was perfect."

My husband and I went to The
Dredge on our last night in Breckenridge. We thought the concept was really neat, but we were quickly disappointed in our experience. The hostess sat us and gave us water right away. Our server greeted us shortly after we sat down and took our drink & appetizer order. Our appetizer was brought out before our drinks from the bar and our water was empty. Our server finally brought us the fresh bread she offered after we were about done with our apps. Then she finally brought out our drinks from the bar. (At this point, we had to ask 2 other people on separate occasions to fill our water glasses because our server wasn't around.) A large table got sat after we ordered our food & we were quickly neglected even more"

My husband and I came here last
year and decided to come again. Probably the best seafood pasta I have ever eaten!!! Waiter wasn't over the top friendly though. Love the restaurant though!"

We use to go as a winter season
restaurant in Breckenridge area year after year. The mussels are a must. Service is great an the view is amazing. Ask for a window table."
Dined on 1/23/2014
Worst service ever. It took 1 1/2
hours for our food to arrive. Steak order was mixed up. Had to beg other waiters for bread and water after waiting 1 hour. Food was good, so the service is a total shame. Thank god they had crayons so we could color to fight our hunger pains."

What an awful experience. Finding
the place was a disaster. The address lists it as being on Jefferson Avenue, and Google maps shows it ON Jefferson Ave as well. Its in the middle of a pond. Appetizer (spinach/artichoke dip) was awful: bright green and runny.. no artichokes. Looked like it came out of a can. A bright green flavorless mess.We sent it back and left. Went to Spenser's (at Beaver Run resort) delicious!! Will NEVER go back to the Dredge. Also: menu they give you is totally different than menu shown online at their website. They didn't seem to care it was so off.."

Dined on 12/28/2013
Average food, nice setting. The
menu is nothing special compared to other restaurants in Breckenridge. If you are looking for a special occasion, try Hearthstone or Twist. Both are spectacular. The steaks were fine, pasta was nothing special but mussels on the appetizer menu were very good. The setting is very nice but service by a very young staff was spotty. Our waitress kept forgetting our orders and had to return to the table 3 times to confirm dishes. In addition, we never got the extra bread we asked for despite asking twice."
Dined on 12/31/2013
Read a lot of reviews about this
place. Food was good and above my expectations. Service was not very good. I ordered another drink, however she brought a drink for my husband that he did not order. We ordered a child's meal at ordering time. Server never ordered the food. We finally got his chicken fingers and fries after we were done eating. We were informed it had only been 10 minutes on the ticket time when she finally placed the order for chicken fingers and fries. When I asked for the server to order my drink, she came to the table and stated to us, "did you need me." She also informed us that we did not order the child's meal. Overall, good food but service not the best. Probably will not return."

Sitting on a frozen lake is this
cool spot called The Dredge. We took a family of 9, ages 3-66. Everyone enjoyed their experience. Something on the menu or everyone. Little Breck history in the place."

Hostess was helpful in reeling me
in when I called for directions. Did not have to wait long for food."

This restaurant was located close
to our condo and my son wanted a restaurant that served burgers. I appreciated that the restaurant took reservations because Breckenridge was very crowded during the time we were there and I didn't want to go somewhere and wait an hour for a table. We all got burgers - they were delicious. However, the menu had many other options as well. Our server was extremely professional and friendly. We had a great experience. Also the venue itself is cool."

The atmosphere was great; waitress
was wonderful. For the price of the food we were expecting either more for our money or at least a more quality taste."
Dined on 12/29/2013
The food, service and atmosphere
was all very average. It was a very basic, no frills restaurant so don't expect much more than a place to eat average looking and tasting food. My biggest problem was that it was my girlfriends birthday, I typed in the request to have cake brought out and to have the waitstaff sing and it never happened. When I got up to say something, they brought a cup of coffee with whip cream in it, the whip cream was to hold a candle and dropped it off in front of her and walked away. Didn't even "say" happy birthday. I really wouldn't recommend this place nor go back because of our bad experience and treatment."

The Dredge was wonderful. The
ambiance was great as was the setting. The service was fantastic. The food was adequate and not particularly memorable. However when back in Breck, we would likely return based on the setting and service"

Great scenic location. Food was
above average. Ordered steaks that were good but not great."
Dined on 12/17/2013
We had pasta and the steak
special. Our bill was $70 and the meal was just ok. We were the only customers at one point. Not sure why we needed reservations. We come to Breck pretty often. Probably won't go back to The Dredge."

We were originally sent to a local
touristy restaurant on Main Street but the wait was 1.5 hours! Anyone with kids knows that won't work. So I used my open tAble app and got reservations at the dredge. It is one block off Main Street but surprisingly not crowded. The food was surprisingly very good and they had a good kids menu. My husband had delicious salad and soup and burger . My ribs were good but not exceptional. The staff was very helpful and attentive. Definitely would recommend to famines whose parents want good food"
