We watched the new Star Wars film at the cinema and looked for somewhere to eat in Dillon before returning to Breckenridge. We checked on TA and we were not disappointed. Steak, ribs and toasted cheese sandwich were great. Fries with skins on and a...More

I'd eaten breakfast here before, but this was the first time for dinner. Clearly a very popular spot in the lower level. Lots of locals and families. Made for a bit of a noisy ambiance but the food and service were great.

Great local eatery with tons of history as one of the oldest buildings in Dillon! The food was top notch and our waiter was on point! Loved it!

Always very good. We think dinner in the pub is better than breakfast upstairs; that said, the patio is really nice among the flowers and tourists heading to the lake lol. Burgers and trout are excellent.

Whole in the wall on the lake. Granola pancakes for breakfast and trout for dinner. Although the trout was good the steamed spinach and rice were bland. Still a great place!

The Arapahoe Cafe is staffed by a friendly and courteous staff and serves very good food at a reasonable price. A great way to start the day for breakfast or wind down at the end of the day for dinner

This was the first time Trip Advisor reviews let us down. The food was really really bad! Nothing made fresh. You could tell the soups, appetizers, sauces etc were straight out of a can or the freezer. Yuck! The service was quite good and the...More

Unfortunately we do not have heaters on the patio. If the sun is out it is usually warm enough to eat outside by about 9.
