“Best restaurant in Creede!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

This is a fabulous new restaurant in Creede. The atmosphere is very cool, service is excellent and the food is extraordinary. The space is small and intimate and, since they don't take reservations, you may need to be a bit patient, but it is well worth the wait. Have eaten there numerous times now and have never been disappointed

“Exceptional!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Had dinner on August 11 @ Far Dog-we loved the upscale fine-dining atmosphere w/a twist of the local flair of Crede. Our menu selections were first rate and the fried chicken was exceptional followed by the coconut cream pie - pure satisfaction!

“Best food experience in Creede”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Ate there three times in July. No reservations. Food is superb and worth the price (not cheap, but worth it!!!!). Service, exceptional. Bar is best in Creede, for style, class and great mixed drinks. Be there when Hanna is bartender. She is first rate! This place is what Creede has been needing for a long time. A class act, run by professionals. Nothing against the other restaurant/bars in Creede. they are really great. It's just that this place is a step up. It is a a small place, so don't get pissy if you don't get right in. Have a drink. Meet the locals and the non-locals, ease back, take off your watch and lose the iPhone. This is Creede, man, be cool and go to the Far Dog and have a great evening! Highly recommended! Owned by one of THE most successful restaurant owners in Dallas, Texas. 'Nuff said. Disclosure - And no I don't know the owner, but I do know Hanna. She is my niece! Be nice. Tip well! Have a great evening.

“On the upswing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

They are new restuarant and still finding their stride- working out kinks- but overall promising with some great dishes and good service.

“Great Food and Fun Martini Bar Feel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

We ate at Far Dog on Friday, July 20th. The food was fabulous and the atmosphere was great. I noticed the two other reviews and assume the negativity is due to the fact that they recently opened and were probably still working out the kinks. It was great when were there.

FOOD
The food was terrific. The chef is a Sous Chef from Al Berneit's (sp??) is Dallas. Not sure how often they change their menu, but we had the yummy Pulled Pork Nachos, Caesar Salad, and the Flat Iron Steak. All were very tasty! The portions are generous, so I would recommend sharing plates. That's what we did and we were stuffed afterward.

TIME TO EAT
The restaurant is small and doesn't have a ton of tables. We did NOT see a show in Creede, so we got to the restaurant at 7:00pm. The timing was perfect, as groups were getting ready to leave for the show when we arrived.

VALUE
We are from Scottsdale, AZ, have traveled quite a bit and have dined at a lot of 'fine dining' restaurants. I think the value was worth it. With our 2 appetizers, the salad and dinner we shared, our drinks before dinner, wine with dinner, and dessert, our bill was $103.00. In Scottsdale, this would easily have been $130-$180. We don't spend money like this on meals very often, so we were appreciative of what we got for what we paid.

When we return to Creede, we will definitely revisit Far Dog and highly recommend it.
