Holiday Dining

If you are lucky enough to spend the holidays in Breckenridge, you are lucky enough! Bright lights, big snowflakes and horse drawn carriages through town are just a few things that make the holidays so special in Breck. A surely magical time of year during the holidays, we are so excited that you and your family have chosen to indulge in this very special time with us. So, what’s on the agenda while you are here? While we believe you will be on the slopes for some of your trip, we’ve gathered a list of some local’s favorite restaurants sure to give you delicious calories to burn back on the hill. As you can see, the favorite’s list is quite short, so make sure you make reservations ahead of time.

If you are looking to dine out, here are some upscale options. All are willing to accompany families:

Briar Rose

With a focus on wild game and best cuts of filet, the Briar Rose Chophouse will be open on Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve. Not looking for a big sit down but just to get out of the condo for a bit? Check out there happy hour, 4 to 6 p.m. offering ½ priced small plates in the bar.


Although closed on Christmas day, Modis offers holiday-themed specials through New Year’s. With a modern feel and some of the best cocktails in town, come on in and snuggle up with a glass of red wine and some fine food.


Relish sits right in the middle of the Blue River Plaza just steps off Main Street. With amazing views of the ski resort and a fun staff, this meal is probably one you will come back for next time you visit! Not offering Christmas day dining, save this special menu for a New Year celebration with the family and loved ones.
