The old Steak & Rib restaurant is now The Canteen Tap House & Tavern. Recently, a dinner out with our friends meant an opportunity to give the new, Breckenridge restaurant a try. We suggest you stop in when you get a chance too.
Our dinner consisted of a variety of drinks, appetizers and entrees. The drink menu was extensive. The margaritas and dark & stormy were served in tin cups that looked like something you would use to scoop your water out of the well with back in the day. Both the ahi tuna and BBQ flatbread appetizers were hits at our table and disappeared in no time. The tuna was served on a bed of guacamole ready to be scooped up with the tortilla chips served with it. Our entrees were the southwest chicken salad, ribs, a burger topped with chiles and cream cheese and a Reuben. Jason is a Reuben guy and can be pretty particular about them. This one was a big hit with him resulting in the best compliment that can be given; that it will be ordered again. The burger was equally as good resulting in more rave reviews. The salad was pretty good, I mean it is a salad afterall, although it was served in a bowl that was a little small making it hard to eat without it spilling over the sides. The ribs were reported to have a hint of spice in the sauce and rub.
The service we received in the bar was also good. We even had a visit by one of the owners, Mike Steger. He chatted with us for a while even though I'm sure he had to be very busy. He even went out of his way to provide 4th of July event information to our friends that just moved to Colorado.
If you haven't had the opportunity to stop in to The Canteen yet, make it a point to do so. Now that they are also open for lunch, it's even easier to give it a try.
