We finally tried this restaurant, and we were very happy with the sushi! It is very small and there is almost always a wait, but you put your name and ph#, so you can leave and they call when there's a space open. We sat at the bar and watched the sushi guys work while we ate.

We come to Kemosabe every few months. As locals, we do try different restaurants and are always disappointed, wishing we would have just stuck with what we love. Best Happy in Summit. Service is amazing! Everyone is always friendly and everything is always delicious!!

We've stayed at Frisco for our past 2 visits to Keystone and each year we ate at Kemosabe to take advantage of their happy hour specials. I love eating sashimi and sushi. For the price that we paid, we got pretty good quality cuts of fish. The wait, however, can be quite long during the happy hour period since it's... More

Great sushi restaurant, there is a cast variety and everyone can find something to enjoy! Their desserts are really good, especially their chocolate cake (I can't really remember if it's a cake, but it was delightful)

We're part time residents between Frisco and Breck .. and I think overall I prefer this place to Mountain Flying Fish in Breck. We normally come here during happy hour for obvious reasons. They aren't trying to be a New York/Tokyo level sushi joint and that is just fine with me. All rolls and apps have been great that I... More

We visited in the off-season and could not find a sushi bar in Breckenridge. Kemosabe's was recommended by hotel staff at our Breckenridge lodge. We were not disappointed! The sushi chef was very friendly, made recommendations and prepared a special role with all the things we love! The "Frisco" roll is amazing! Smoked trout and lemon combined in a delightful... More

We decided on Kemosabe for a tasty treat for our anniversary. When we first arrived at the restaurant the place was pretty busy, but lucky for us two seats at the bar. Even though the place was Jammin, we had several servers come over to check on us and make sure we were taken care of. Normally I'd order a... More

I love this place! Every time a customer walks in they are warmly greeted by the amazingly attentive, Caz. She makes you feel so welcome and offers the best recommendations. On one of my first visits (yes she and the food by the amazing Chef Kevin have turned me into a regular) I mentioned I was Gluten Free and she... More

It was my second time at Kemosabe. Went on October 7 for happy hour after a long flight. Nothing like the Tuna Tower to cure jet lag! The waitress was very attentive and the food was good.

We came here at the recommendation of a local. I'm always a bit skeptical about sushi this far away from big cities (much less an ocean). We were very pleasantly surprised! We came in right as they opened at 4 on a Sunday afternoon and were the only people in the joint while the were opening up. The staff was... More
