There’s always something fresh, delicious and often quite original at Silverthorne restaurants. Some of Summit County’s most iconic eateries make their home in Silverthorne, including a grill-your-own steakhouse with a history as a saloon and brothel dating back to the 1880s and two breakfast and lunch cafés with hearty dishes that provide the calories needed to power you up to mountain summits or speed you down powder-licious hills. Silverthorne restaurants include a mix of independently owned restaurants and several mom-and-pop ethnic outlets. Foods from around the world with a presence in Silverthorne include Italian, Indian and Nepalese, Asian (Chinese and Vietnamese Pho) and Mexican, among others. Burgers, pizza (eat-in or take-and-bake), subs and barbeque share their menus along Highway 9 with a few locations nestled among the retail shops at the Outlets at Silverthorne. National chain restaurants, both small and large, dot the highway landscape for tasty convenience. For many people, vacation eating is a grab-and-go affair, and there’s no shame in eating fast food when you’re running to make first chair at one of the county’s nearby ski resorts. And with two new restaurant-brewery combinations opened in the last year or so, Silverthorne is fast becoming a favorite with the hops and barley set.
Beyond Silverthorne Restaurants
Summit County offers a huge variety of dining experiences, so it’s a delicious idea to look beyond Silverthorne restaurants. Locals and guests often choose to turn a dinner engagement into an entire evening affair, and this can be done by combining a tasty meal with live music, theater or nighttime cultural events at restaurants in Breckenridge and Frisco. After a day on Lake Dillon, diners can enjoy a frozen cocktail or cold, sweaty beer at the restaurants on either side of the waterway at the Frisco Bay or Dillon marinas.
