The food was excellently prepared and the portions were large. Everything we had was delicious. I’d love to see them offer a crew more vegan/vegetarian options. Matthew was attentive and knew the food and made recommendations that were pleasing. Good wine by the glass.

Another great meal at Hearthstone. Dinner on the deck in the summer is a wonderful experience and is warm but not too hot until the sun sets behind ten mile range. The $45 fixed menu has some excellent choices and we both enjoyed every dish. Portions are the right size and we left quite happy. Nicely developed flavors throughout.

As always the food and service was excellent. We appreciate their Best of Season 3-course selections for $45. It is advertised in the Summit Daily and usually on Mondays through Wednesdays. Best place to eat in Breck!

Wonderful experience all around. Went for our anniversary. Received menus with “Happy Anniversary” written on it and received complimentary half glass of Prosecco each. Service was on point. Food was well-seasoned and cooked to order. We will be back - soon!

Ashley was the best taking care of all our needs. I put in Open Table it was our anniversary and we would appreciate a window seat to see the mountains. We were seated by the windows with a special menu that was labeled “Happy Anniversary.” The food was wonderful and our experience was absolutely perfect. Thank you! Denise

One is never disappointed when dining at The Hearthstone. Great setting in an original (but restored) Victorian Building in the core of downtown Breckenridge. When you combine sharp, nicely attired, attendant, and informed, wait staff with excellent, properly prepared, and creative food choices, one can't go wrong. Highly recommend!

Truly locally sourced seasonal food up in the mountains is hard to find. These guys manage to make it happen with perfection. The summer menu is full of fresh tomatoes & peaches grown in mountain gardens right in Summit County. The sea scallop appetizer was amazing. The Colorado Lamb had the purest taste of fresh grass I’ve ever found. Obviously a well taken care of animal. The rack of lamb was divine. They do different preparations daily, but ours was crusted with parmesean & rosemary, topped with a peach glaze and fresh sautéed patty pan squash.

The view of the mountains at sunset is part of what makes this restaurant so special! In the summer we had an 8:15pm reservation & it was perfect timing for the sunset. Highly recommend!

Overall an excellent experience. Of note, the panko-coated lobster tail and the duck duck cous cous were excellent.

Good wine list at a range of price points. Well-prepared cocktails.

Old Victorian house. Could use a redo on the carpeting but other than that, great decor.

Capable, cheerful service.

We'll be back.

we have been here several times, basically when we get to Breckenridge in the summer, and love the gentile atmosphere and the wait staff is superb. I'm afraid, however, that Hearthstone may be resting on its laurels.
A creative description and lovely presentation does not make the food taste any better. I ordered the duck, which the waiter had raved about. I love duck and have ordered it in many places. I have never had the drumstick come to the table so shriveled that it is inedible. The breast part was okay, bordering on a little underdone, and though it was atop a pea puree I believe, with a little blackberry beet sauce accompaniment, it was basically very bland and boring. The couscous was nice, but hard to get at with the cold greens in the way. Why they were there is beyond me.
I do have to say that the waiter and manager were most attentive and brought more of the berry sauce, and a new piece of succulent drumstick, which was much easier to eat, though nothing to rave about.
They knew I was not that pleased, and offered a free dessert which was also raved about. Saying how wonderful a dish is does not make it so.
Again, let me stress that it was sooo nice of them. However, the suggested carrot cake was very dense, and the little bourbon milkshake that came with it was icy, rather than as it should be.
So yes, I would go back, and I would recommend it, as it's a lovely place, and I hope when I give them another try it will surpass my expectations as it used to do.
I also feel that the menu could have more choices.
I mentioned this to a friend, and she had the same feeling the last time she was there, that it just wasn't up to par.
Again, they could not have been more accommodating.

We come to Hearthstone each time we are in Summit County, and it never disappoints. The food was excellent, and the service was good, but the pacing was way off on this night. It might have been due to us being seated outside, but I expect better from them. We'll be back, so it didn't turn us off completely, but dinner should not take 2 hours.

We took our son and wife to Hearthstone for a lovely dinner. We had a nice corner table with a large window which was great for people watching and just looking outside. Our waiter was good. The food was very good. And the special drinks were absolutely excellent. We would go back there again if in town. Be prepared that the prices are a little high. Also, make a dinner reservation ahead of time or you may not get in.

Nice historic house with patio as well as inside dining. Take some time to look as the photos and admire the architecture. Once settled at your table, enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine while reviewing the menu as explained by your attentive server. Make your selections, then sit back and enjoy. Excellent food, great service (thanks Shorty), and a pleasant atmosphere made for a nice evening.

Food was great as usual. We always try to get here when we make our annual visit to the area. Disappointed with the wait however.. Had 6:15 reservation on a week night and yet were made to wait over 20 min for our table. We understand these things can happen but a complimentary drink or dessert would have been a nice gesture.

We had Charred Octopus, amazing, we will order 2 next time! Crispy Lobster was fried, all fried food taste alike in our opinion.. We split the blackberry elk for dinner, it was perfect, highly recommend. We made reservations and went early hoping to get a table, we were seated promptly and had excellent customer service.
