I have read some bad reviews of The Dredge. We actually had a nice experience, and the food was not great but is was OK. Although there are lots of restaurants in Breck, we did not had an unforgettable experience in any of them.

The food and service were OK but we were disappointed in the limited menu. Items advertised in local magazines were not actually available. One advantage is that they can accommodate large groups.

This restaurant is a replica of an old dredge and is located on the river thru town. The menu has many choices and our group of 6 people had ample choices and everyone enjoyed dinner. Prices were reasonable and service was good.

They could have a kids menu, but I don't specifically remember their being one. My youngest "kid" is 22 now, so I could have missed it.
