Great after-ski spot with tasty choices and great beer and cocktail selection. The bar is the hotspot but any table gets you good eats. Get a reservation or wish you did!

Good place! Drinks were super yummy. Wings and nachos were great. Burgers were good but a little too rich for our taste is definitely go back but make a different request on the burgers. Love the service and the atmosphere was great. We will be back!

Great atmosphere with solid food. The 6 of us really enjoyed our food. They have a good variety menu at good prices. They also have many beers on tap along with other drink selections. We each got a different beer and tried each others. Loved the vibe here.

Food was excellent! Some really great flavors. Everyone at the table had something different and everyone loved their entree! Choose another side other than the French fries, no one cared for them, they were undercooked and not at all crisp. But we all would visit again and just order a different side!!

Great laid back, mountain feel. Charcuterie plate had good variety and was enough for three. Lots of options on craft beer. Hearty pub fare and higher quality than expected for a taphouse.

Fun casual bar/restaurant convenient to main street scene. Food was good. We had the salmon, wedge salad, hot wings, red Chile and mac and cheese. Not haute cuisine, but quite tasty. Had a table of youngsters next to us, and since we were there on christmas eve, they were pumped up. Not something to complain about, but it is likely a spot where families may be more comfortable than folks looking for a more subdued experience.

Got there an hour early for our reservation and the hostess found us a table even though it was pretty busy. Our server Milo was awesome. Food and “Canteen” drinks were great. Fun time had by all.

My husband and I went to Breckenridge for a couples getaway, and decided to eat at the Canteen, based off of reviews. When we arrived, we immediately remembered that we had tried to go to this restaurant the year before, and it was extremely packed, and we did not have a reservation. Looking at this place, it’s hard to imagine that you would need a reservation for it, but nonetheless, we were rudely turned away. It’s old, cramped, and dingy. We decided to give it another chance, and not much has changed since the year we had been there. It was not nearly quite as busy, but on the way to the table, the host dropped our menu on the floor, and picked it back up and gave it to me without cleaning it.

The configuration of the restaurant itself is very cramped. We were seated at a small table toward the corner. We both wanted to sit next to each other, so we moved to the table next to us (we were in a half booth/half chair setup). Five minutes later, they asked us to move because they had another reservation coming in. They have one server for the entire room, and he was young, loud, and abrupt. I marked on my OpenTable reservation that we were there for a special occasion, and not once was that recognized, and further, we weren’t treated as if we were there for a special occasion. After getting shuffled to another table, our spirits had been diminished. We were so hungry, that we decided to stay.

I got the margarita, and my husband got the mule. The drinks were huge, so at least we got our moneys worth there. The food was actually pretty good, but a couple of the items I wanted did not come as individual plates. The special barbecue pork they had was only a topper for a burger. Overall, it was a decent experience at best, but we will not be looking to eat there again during other visits to Breckenridge. There are plenty of other options, and we will be looking at dining elsewhere.
