If there is better BBQ in Breck, we haven't found it. Portions are generous and house smoked to perfection. Love coming here.

We were vacationing and like to try new things. Elk was on the menu and that’s one reason we chose this place.

So food and service were great. Erin did a great job. I would have ranked the restaurant higher if not for 2 items; 1) their wine list is way out of date and needs to be updated. makes it a frustrating process for server and diners, 2) since they offer BBQ and smoked meats, the "smokey meats" smell is very obvious and at times a little over bearing (when it interferes with flavor and smell of food and wine). All of our clothes smelled like smoked meats afterwards.

The service was great and the Cowboy Cut steak was very flavorful and delicious. The Cheese Board appetizer was a little lackluster.

Filet was good. Baked potato was dry and overcooked. Wait service was a bit slow, I had to flag down the waitress a couple of times. Did not get a dessert since we waited 10+ after we were finished for her to show back up.

Good place for dinner after a day on the hill.
Food quality is good, Elk was excellent.
Wine list is not as listed, many not available, a problem.

We got there for a 6:00 reservation and the restaurant was relatively quiet. By the time our dinners came out, things were filling up! Our waitress was friendly and efficient and the food came out quickly. We had the calamari appetizer which was good. Then we all had filet’s which were cooked as ordered. The grilled asparagus was my favorite part of the whole meal!!!! Would definitely come back again. Family of 4 (2 teenage boys so they eat like an adult), appetizer, 4 filet’s, no alcohol and the bill came to just over $150. What I was expecting.

We were on our family vacation and chose to eat here for one of our dinners. Waitress did not know specials and had to read them off of her order pad and was not familiar with wine menu. Appetizers were decent and food was fair. However, our son ordered a ribeye (which they said was their specialty) and wanted it cooked medium rare. The first steak they brought out was cooked medium for over half of the steak. When he sent it back, the chef cut into the part that was medium rare and had the waitress bring it back out to tell us that part of the steak was cooked like he had asked. Really? For a $37 steak shouldn't all of it be cooked like you asked? And what high end restaurant sends a steak back out to a table if the customer was unhappy in the first place? They did end up cooking a 2nd steak after we sent it back again, but this is totally unacceptable at this type of restaurant. The manager or owner came over and said that was not common practice for Salt Creek, but that was too late. We do travel to Breckenridge every year and we will NOT return to this restaurant nor would we recommend that anyone else go here.

Busy spot with a nice crowd on Saturday night. Priced as a high-end steak house but the food quality and atmosphere are more typical of a casual dinning space. Decent food but the price was much hire then the value.

My husband and I went here for our last night's dinner. The meals were amazing. I had the beef medallions and he had the cowboy ribeye. We would rank them as one of the best meals we have ever eaten. The waitress was awesome. The only thing that caught me off guard was the heavy smell of wood burning. It was a little overwhelming at first but I forgot about it after the bread came. lol

We were disappointed on several accounts. First, we arrive on time but had to wait 20 minutes to be seated. Second, we were seated in front of a cold air vent. Third, there were no good hearty dinner salad choices. Fourth, my husband ordered the salmon (special of the day) which was completely rare in the middle. Our waiter did rectify the situation by bringing him a new dinner and taking that meal off of the bill.
We expected better.

Overall the food was fine. One steak was cooked as requested, the other steak took 3 attempts to get is right. Manager made an adjustment to the bill. Service was really good. Nice place to take your family.
