Summit County Restaurants

If variety is the spice of life, then Summit County restaurants are well-seasoned and sure to keep your palate busy. Well-recognized for developing classic American menus overlaid with a Western theme, Summit County restaurant specialties such as thick, juicy steaks, buffalo burgers, Colorado lamb or locally caught trout make a visit here truly authentic. Chefs at Breckenridge restaurants pride themselves on applying creativity to the region’s best local produce, transforming ingredients into the kinds of delicious great plates you’d expect from this rugged area. Some of the heartier breakfasts meant to fuel your activity-filled day right from its start can be found at Frisco restaurants. For those not engaged in adventure sports, lunchtime (in late spring and throughout summer) might find you basking in the sun for an al fresco meal or snack at Dillon restaurants by the marina. Whether you're dashing in and out of retailers at the outlets or looking for sit-down Italian or Indian food, Silverthorne restaurants can satisfy both needs. Dinnertime mountain casual is the fashion here — few ties or fancy heels are in evidence even at upscale locations. Still, a popular Arapahoe Basin restaurant offers fine gourmet food at an unfathomable elevation. Most local restaurants offer some vegetarian and gluten-free selections. During busy times of the year, you will want to phone ahead for dinner reservations.

Taste the Ethnic Flavors of Summit County’s Restaurants

Going beyond the multicultural population of Summit County residents, the variety of ethnic foods you can find here is significant. Choices to sample during your stay include Italian, Irish, Indian, French, Czech, Cajun, Mexican and Asian (sushi, classic dishes and pho) among others. If you like your meal intertwined with history, several Summit County restaurants are located inside buildings dating from the 1800s. Craft beer fans will find plenty to love within the area’s six brewpubs. Dinner can also come with a side order of entertainment: a sleigh ride and cowboy show or fresh ingredients grilled via Asian Teppanyaki.
