Great for burgers - even buffalo and elk!

Very friendly staff and owner!! We did not realize that pretty much every place in Cripple Creek is a casino, and this was the only restaurant we saw that did not have slot machines and flashing lights of gambling machines in it.So if you have kids, this is pretty much it for you!

We had previously eaten at The Creek. Food was good but the service was just okay. We took some friends there on a Saturday rdar night in August. They were busy but not out the door busy. After being seated we waited 20 minutes with no service. The waitress was too busy sitting at tables talking with her friends. The... More

We had lunch here while on a day trip to Cripple Creek. We just had burgers and onion rings but they was fantastic! I would eat here again in a heartbeat! The atmosphere was great and the wait staff was good too. Lunch came quick and hot. While in Cripple Creek eat here then go next door for some homemade... More

The Creek came highly recommended by our hotel staff who even called ahead to confirm they were still serving. It was recommended we order the battered mushrooms which are made in house snd absolutely fantastic! We had a buffalo burger and elk burger both so fresh and cooked perfectly medium rare. Fries were cut in the kitchen and really good!... More

I thought that things might have settled in and gotten better at the Creek, but was very disappointed. We actually went a couple times a few weeks apart, trying to be fair. Last time was worse than the time before. Does anybody care about the food and/or service? Doesn't look like it. The food comes out cold (when it finally... More

This was just great. One of the employees overheard my reluctance to order the elk burger and volunteered that it wasn't at all gamey, but was actually very lean. I ordered it and it was excellent. My brother had a pizza and also enjoyed it very much. We were having a late lunch so most people were finishing as we... More

Stopped here with two hungry kids and were warmly welcomed by the staff. Quickly seated and they even helped us move two tables together to accommodate our family! Food was great! Prompt service; just finished our drinks, and being asked if we'd like another! Just a really great visit!!! Thank you!

We had kids with us and were reluctant to eat in a bar. The place was friendly and welcoming. The burger was great and the service was excellent. Highly recommend.
