The service was very good - friendly and attentive. Our waiter did know a bit about the beers on tap and was ready with recommendations - mainly the Breckenridge Brewery Agave Wheat.
Most of the microbrews on tap were from Breckenridge Brewery (six taps, I think), and the rest were mainly macros (another six). I had the Vanilla Porter and Agave Wheat, both of which were tasty but not beers I'd go out of my way for.
Overall the atmosphere of the place was what I would call "fun". We sat upstairs (which I recommend, actually, given the choice; it was less crowded, a bit more mellow, and there was more seating at the bar). The tables, booths, video games, pool table and TV's all contributed to a "sports bar" feel. However, the sport of choice (on TV, at least) seemed to be snowboarding, and most of the bar crowd seemed to be (lively) seasonal Breckenridge resort employees. Personally, I found this endearing, but if you're not in Breckenridge to ski or snowboard . . . just something to keep in mind. There were also a fair amount of children in the place (early in the evening), but they were mainly seated downstairs at the time.
The food was really the high point of the evening. There's one page on the menu dedicated to choice steaks, and another page dedicated to BBQ. We had the wings, ribeye steak, and ahi tuna, all of which were very good.
Overall, not a place I'd make a trip for, but definitely a great place to check out if you're in town, for good food and for sampling Breckenridge Brewery beers (that is, of course, if you don't want to head the rest of the way down Mainstreet to the Breckenridge Brew Pub itself).

Hello, I went to Breckenridge this past week for my honeymoon. My bride and I did some skiing, beer drinking and roaming around the little town of Breckenridge.
We went to Kenosha because of the other reviewer. Otherwise we would not have gone there. They had more Breckenridge brewery beers than Breckenridge brewery did (not kidding). They had five BB beers and other Colorado local brews: Odell, Avery and others.
The I can't comment too much on the food because I just had a bowl of their buffalo soup. It was ok, we had a late lunch and weren't in a huge meal mood. The guys next to me were eating buffalo bugers that looked good.
Anyway, I would go back. Thanks for the find!

We were in CO for almost a week already. To be honest, the rest of the crowd was getting a bit tired with pub grub and brewpubs. They needed a rest. So, after a late lunch of a coupla pints at Breckenridge, we meandered down main street to find some place to eat. Kenosha was just down a block or so. "Beef, beer, BBQ" was clearly emblazoned over the outdoor menu.
We strolled into the somewhat shotgun style bar area. Tables and booths were along the right side with a small bar in the back with around a dozen chairs. There was an upstairs that had outdoor seating overlooking the mountains, but there was some late summer hail that stopped that idea. It was some sort of restaurant before this, but I can't remember the name of it. Before that, it was a Wendy's. We took a booth and relaxed.
My initial excitment was due to the 20 or so tap lines. This was somewhat dimmed when the first two I saw were Tecate and Coors. However, they had at least ten good brews on tap. CO micro brews were represented well, with New Belgium, Odells, Breckenridge, Left Hand, etc. on tap. There were one or two macro micros, like Anchor, Sam Adams, and Bass. Then there were a few macros tossed in. Quality was just fine. I had two or three Odell 90 shillings before, during and with my meal. There was an actual list within the menu with desciptions that matched the tap lines. (I didn't have to do the typical, "what do you have on tap."Hmm, what do you like...")
Food was pub grub on top of burgers, steaks and BBQ. We had a mixture of everything. The buffalo burgers, steaks, and pulled pork were all done appropriately, with nice portions and reasonable prices. Salads were large, but boring.
The staff was quick and somewhat knowledgable. No, they weren't at beer geek stage, but not bad for some steak joint in the middle of nowhere. Somewhat average if not a little better.
Overall, you choices are quite limited in Breckenridge. If you can't squeeze into Breck Brewpub, or just need a brewpub break, enjoy some quality beer and BBQ while in town.
