Will not return or recommend to anyone. Service was poor. Was told a certain soup was not available without bacon. Came to find out bacon was put on at end. Their “specialty” steak was full of fat. They had an $8 plate sharing charge to split a meal. After ordering, they brought out 1 meal and a plate. Was told to cut meal in half for sharing. I arrived with a party of six and almost left without leaving a tip. Server was hesitant about bringing more bread for the table and unfortunately, the bread was the best tasting food item on the menu.

Chose the Salt Creek as I couldn't get reservations at Briar Rose, I was worried. My worries were wrong. While the ambience is not the same as Briar Rose the food was just as good and the Service was fantastic. Tom D was our waiter, and was very attentive. Burrata salad was great as was the broiled bone marrow appetizers. The dinner rolls were delicious. All our steaks were done perfectly and tasted fantastic. Very nice wine list. Definitely will place this as a favorite on par with Briar rose. Waiter also brought a dessert for my daughter for her birthday!

We have been to the Salt Creek Steakhouse numerous times and have almost always found it to be an awesome experience. Food is excellent, ambiance is very nice, and we a usually have outstanding service. Our last visit was slightly disappointing, as our waitress was very busy with numerous tables. She was very professional and clearly great at her job, she was just too busy to be as attentive as we've grown accustom.

Out server didn’t ask us if we wanted bread but proceeded to give it to everyone else. It wasn’t clear when we substituted sides that there would be an increase in charging. The meat was good but way overpriced for the thickness and quality of the cuts. It cost more than the high end steak houses we’ve been to but definitely not there with quality amount or service.

Our reservation was set for 7:45 but due to 3-4 large parties our reservation was delayed 45 minutes. The host Anthony was very apologetic and comped a dessert. Sean our waiter was very good and very accommodating. The food as also very good...what I thought was going to be a negative experience due to our wait was definitely worth the wait and was a good experience. All was very good and would highly recommend dining at Salt Creek.

Everytime we come ski Breck, we always dine at Salt Creek at least one night. The servers are very friendly, food is good, and the price is reasonable. It has a rustic appearance, western style decor, with good selections of exotic meats. I have high standards for a steakhouse and Salt Creek never dissappoints.

This is an Ok steakhouse and definitely marginal BBQ. We arrived 10 mins early for our 6:30 reservation and ushered upstairs for a drink while some of the visibly open tables were "prepared" for us. Waiving us off an open table was just to get us upstairs to spend more money on alcohol. We ordered only 3 drinks immediately and within 10 minutes our table was ready. However, it took 20 minutes for our server to get 3 drinks before we could go to our table. Frustrating to spend almost 30 minutes upstairs for a round of beers when your hungry. I guess that set the tone for the rest of the evening, although we did have a decent waiter. The steaks were average and the brisket was bone dry. Would not go back.

Bone Marrow appetizer excellent. Steaks had a good seasoning but steak was thin vs thick. Service was fair. Waitress forgot to place appetizer but quickly remedied the situation once she realized it. Heard they have a

Been here a few times. If you are eating at Peak times they have a hard tendency to take about an hour to serve you your meals. Maybe ok with an all adult crowd drinking, somewhat less ok with a family.

Also, for the cost of the meal compared to top steak houses, the steak is average at best. Even my sons thought that...”Ok steak, for Breckenridge”

Forget the aged spiel on the streaks. They’re not all that and a box of cracker jacks. Ours were just not very good. The wait staff was great and it’s a really nice little place that I’m 99% sure I won’t revisit.
