I went to Salt Creek Steakhouse after I proposed to my girlfriend. The entire experience was amazing. Our waiter, Mike, had done an amazing job of giving us great service. I have worked in restaurants and top to bottom he handled our orders, timing of food delivery, and overall attitude in an amazing way.

The manager, Anthony, did an awesome job facilitating everything to not only our table but tables around us who had made a big deal out of a small issue. Anthony is a true professional and has earned my respect.

Food was 10/10
Experience was 10/10

I would recommend The Salt Creek Steakhouse to anyone looking for good food and a friendly atmosphere.

All family members enjoyed their steaks. Parking was very easy, service was good but a bit slow. We were alittle worried about our attire considering their website said casual elegant. We had been siteseeing all day. We weren't dressed up any and still felt fine in there. I would go again.

We went here for our 10th anniversary. We were seated right by the doors going into the kitchen. So much foot traffic, staff was loud and it was not what we had hoped for. I even put in my reservation it was for an anniversary. When we left a cop was walking into the kitchen. Not sure what was going on. For the price of the meal, I’d expect better atmosphere.

Hi and thank you for taking the time to leave a review after your experience at The Salt Creek Steakhouse. I'm afraid that we are constrained in our seating capacity due to covid related social distancing capacity restrictions and unfortunately this means that we had to seat you at that specific table when you dined with us. The town police inspect daily each bar and restaurant to ensure that we are all adhering to the regulations, hence their visit when you dined with us.

Went around sunset for a beautiful view of the west side of the canyon at dusk.

They had interesting menu items. Chicken parm sandwich was great, as were the cheese curds.

Server was great. Thanks!

The old fashioned cocktail was not an old fashioned. Don’t know what it was but I love making them, but this one missed the mark completely. Ordered steak medium rare but it was medium at best.

This would be a 5 star review, except for what happened while we were waiting for our table reservation. The host suggested that we went upstairs to the bar and grab a drink to wait for a table to be ready. There were four bartenders tending to about three tables and four people in the bar. Every bartender had their back to us and never engaged us one time. I went up to the bar to put a drink order in and after about waiting five minutes one of the disheveled sweating bartenders looked at me and said go back to your table and sit down I’ll be out there when I get to you. This made my party of 4 laugh out loud.

This is to whoever owns or manages The Salt Creek Steakhouse, I would fire every one of your bartenders upstairs because they just about ruined an otherwise incredible evening of great food, service, and ambience.

I would recommend this restaurant with the massive caveat of - do not go to the upstairs bar .

What a surprise to have a perfectly prepared porterhouse that wasn't contrived. My wife and I split it and for once, we took home only the bone! Highly recommend. Not sure about the dessert. We had a brownie thing. The chocolate ganache topping was perfect, just like we make at home using only heavy cream, chocolate and sugar, but the brownie was too much, like too big. Enjoyed a Bordeaux claret, something restaurants hardly ever offer, soft on the tanins with deep color and juicy black fruits. I give this restaurant a 5+ for quality, service and value. We'll definitely come back.

My boyfriend and I were seeking a great steak dinner to celebrate our first night in Breck. Unfortunately what we got was mediocre steaks and an earful from the server (female) the entire dinner. Other patrons were even staring at her as she used profanity to discuss sports, and her patrons from the prior shift. She apparently works at this establishment and came in for a discounted dinner with her buddies. Our dinner was completely ruined by her foul mouth and we were 3 tables away! Management really should put a policy in place for when their servers dine amongst the public in their own place of employment. They need to act like adults and not heathens that just got out of prison. Our food was sub par as it took a long time to receive and was maybe warm at best.

For a foodie, we found the barbecue ribs dry and tough. The pulled pork salty and not tender and moist. My wife did enjoy her scallop entree. Service was okay and ambiance okay. Would not recommend this restaurant and will not return.

My husband and I enjoyed the restaurant. The waitress was wonderful and the ambience was great. We shared the wilted spinach salad and we’re very disappointed at how incredibly salty it was. The fillet and prime rib were excellent.

Can’t express enough how delicious these steaks were!! I’m pretty picky and they were cooked to perfection. The muscles and calamari were the best. I’m partial to calamari being an Italian myself but the way they were cooked was amazing!!!of course the wine my son and I had was a great choice and my husband had hid Irish drink...later I found out after the fact my daughter asked if “Anthony was there” I said I wish I knew but tell him the food, service and drinks were above what we expected and so delicious. We will be back!!

We have been to Breckenridge many times and were not familiar with the restaurant. It was a lovely surprise, loved the ambience and the food......when we were there there were 2 large tables that were very loud which was a bit disappointing to what we were looking for. We will reserve again

Took an hour and a half to get food from the time we ordered. Food was inconsistent. This is the classic mediocrity that comes from a place that can normally rely on resort crowds. Would have thought they’d up their game following Covid but nope. You can find better.
