Lovely location. Staff very friendly but lacks training. Ordered a filet ($55). It came barely warm and only with mashed potatoes. My arugula beet goat cheese salad had very little arugula and almost no goat cheese.

The Antlers riverside restaurant is a surprise! It’s a campground and cabins kind of place with a gourmet restaurant. I have eaten there 4 times during travel and I’ve never been disappointed. Deliciously prepared and presented. Elegantly served.

Our party of three dined on the deck, with reservations, and it was a great experience. For two of us it was our first restaurant meal since the pandemic hit, and we had been a bit apprehensive. No need at Antlers. All staff were masked,...the outdoor deck afforded fresh air and spaciousness, and we felt totally comfortable. It was a rainy evening, but the deck is covered, and standing heaters provided just the right amount of warmth. All three of us had trout, which was delicious and beautifully presented. Service was spot on. Andy was attentive, professional, and friendly. I highly recommend Antlers and hope to visit again.More

Our party of six received good service on a week night. Happy to find outdoor dining with Covid precautions taken. The shrimp special was a treat, lamb was excellent, and the ribeye disappointing. All in all, the best place we found in Creede for an...enjoyable meal!More

Family owned and operated, this spot is definitely our favorite for a fine dining experience. You can eat inside or on the deck above the rushing waters of the Rio Grande. We like outside because we can enjoy the sound and sight of the river....But we've eaten inside and it can be wonderful as well. The owners live adjacent to the restaurant and are there. Also it is the site of an RV park. So their breakfasts are great as well. We have enjoyed escargot for a starter andLInguini Arrabbiata. - huge shrimp, giant mussels and clams on linguini with spicey red sauce. May be called Linguini de Mare. As their offerings vary from time to time. Have enjoyed their Trout ?? picata as well. Everything is good.More

As others have said, Antlers is a beautiful location. The menu is pretty extensive but I would stick to the meat. I was told the salmon was good, but it was horrible. It was cheap salmon that tasted previously frozen. The portion size was small;...maybe 5 1/2 ounces. Very poor quality salmon covered in sauce to make it appealing. I was surprised there wasn't a trout from Colorado on the menu. Other customers at nearby tables seemed happy with their food -- steak and lamb. The wine list was also very extensive, but the prices were expensive by any standard. In fact, the price for the Far Niente Chardonnay (an excellent wine) was more expensive than Miami and New York City prices. That's just insane. At the same time, the wines by the glass were kind of cheap and poor quality. There was no happy medium. Service was okay, but the restaurant was busy and they clearly didn't have enough waitresses. Considering this is fine dining, I expect linen napkins and not paper napkins. I wouldn't return unless the wine list was realistically priced and the seafood improved.More

Best steakhouse in south western Colorado bar none. A bit out of the way by so worth it. Service, ambiance, and food are all excellent. Yes they are a bit pricey but most food in this part of the Rocky Mountains is. Sitting outside and...dining over the headwaters of the Rio Grande river really make this a special dining experience.More

Delicious meal and beautiful rushing river to enjoy. Sat on the patio and met some other lovely folks who had traveled there many times. It was our first, but we really enjoyed it.

Food is very good, well presented - a little overpriced by the Location makes up for it. Wait staff are all delightful and go out of their way to give a good experience. Vegetable choices were a little disappointing. Beans and mashed potatoes served on...two separate evenings with different entrees.More

The food is excellent (we had both dinner and breakfast), the location is perfect (on the banks of the Rio Grande facing a picturesque cliff), and the price is reasonable for a seasonal resort. Nice wine list. Service? Well, given that finding dependable service workers...is a real challenge these days, is adequate.More
