When you’re in Breckenridge and your taste buds yearn for a delectable, wholesome meal, make sure to pay a visit to The Carlin. This recently-established dining option on Main Street doesn’t just serve up scrumptious seafood; it also boasts a lively late-night tavern downstairs and cozy lodging options on the top floor at The Inn. Complete with stunning scenery of the ten-mile range and a wide range of innovative cocktails, this new development absolutely deserves a prime spot on your must-try list.

The Carlin

Experience the best of both worlds with the choice of indoor or outdoor seating at the main restaurant. Savor every oyster variety The Carlin offers and indulge in a captivating seafood tower as a delightful appetizer. For those seeking a vegetarian delight, we suggest the delectable falafel served with tzatziki and a refreshing cucumber salad. Immerse yourself in a captivating ambiance where the coastal meets the mountainside.

Take your pick between a generous window-side booth or a front-row seat at the raw bar, where culinary magic unfolds before your eyes. Whether you prefer to witness the skilled chefs craft their enchanting dishes or create an intimate atmosphere for a special date night, the choice is yours.

The Tavern

The lower level reveals a modern yet laid-back reinterpretation of traditional American tavern culture. Immerse yourself in the ideal ambiance for a late-night cocktail with friends, as The Tavern provides a welcoming haven for everyone to savor a final, delectable bite before bidding the evening farewell. At The Tavern, instead of televisions, you’ll discover a space designed for relaxed conversations while enjoying distinctive craft cocktails.

Take a moment to appreciate the historical artistry of Breckenridge adorning the walls. Revel in the charm of this unique underground bar during a late-night happy hour (9—1 p.m.). We highly recommend starting with the unmatched Dynamite Shrimp before savoring the Fried Chicken Sandwich, a perfect companion to the Alchemist bourbon cocktail.

The Inn

Select from a diverse range of four unique room types and layouts, tailored to elevate your comfort and relaxation during your upcoming stay. Situated at the corner of Main Street, The Inn above The Carlin is mere steps from the gondola. Every room offers awe-inspiring vistas of the majestic mountain range, complete with pristine kitchenettes and bathrooms. Experience the epitome of a restful night’s sleep in a plush king-sized beds adorned with luxurious 100% cotton sheets.
