Pizza, wings, beer — all served fast — says it all. It’s one of our favorite spots to take a load off after a long day of activities.
Burke and Riley’s Irish Pub

Experience a little Irish flare, with Irish Pub specialties and Irish brews. Burke’s is a great choice for soccer fanatics, and it has an overall great atmosphere.
301 S. Main St.: Whether it’s the all-you-can-eat-ribs or Kenosha’s world-famous PigOut Platter, both blend great with sports. Kenosha knows all about mouth-watering burgers and steaks — and don’t forget about the house-smoked barbecue. Football Bingo is always a locals’ favorite on Monday nights.
600 S. Main St.: What goes better with sports than an ice-cold micro brew? The original Breckenridge Brewery is Breckenridge’s only brewpub. Grab a stool, belly up to the bar and order a flight to taste all the microbrews, from Main Line brew to Seasonal and Small Batch brews to Barrel Aged. TVs line the walls throughout the restaurant so you can easily catch all your games during lunch, happy hour or dinner. Enjoy a burger and beer while taking in the views of Peak 9 and 10 of the Breckenridge Ski Resort.
Park Avenue Pub
605 S. Park Ave.: Park Ave Pub is a great spot to end the day. Watch the game, grab a beer and play a game of pool. The Pub, as locals call it, also dishes out some great late night snacks to ensure the party continues after the big game.
Blue Stag Saloon
323 S. Main St.: While not wholly new to Breckenridge, the Blue Stag Saloon’s remodel of the Whale’s Tail has rapidly become a local favorite. This boutique bar is certainly the coziest ambiance in town. Recycled beatle kill wood ceilings and barn wood walls make for the perfect mountain atmosphere. Go warm up by one of their fireplaces (inside or outside) after a big day on the mountain.
