Have tried short ribs a lot of places . They bring it out on a iron skillet. Lots of gravy to soak your rolls in . . . Best short ribs I’ve ever had

We had a delicious brunch on the lovely patio at this restaurant. Both the food and the service were excellent, and the atmosphere was so relaxing! We recommend it highly!

Went here twice during our trip to Crested Butte. We sat on the front-street side patio for both meals and the service was great both times. For brunch we tried different eggs Benedict dishes and all were terrific. We'd had such a good experience at...breakfast that we went back for dinner. Bacon wrapped dates, buffalo burger, and the short ribs with farro risotto. Every dish was perfect. Can't say enough about the food and the service here and it's probably our new favorite place in Crested Butte.More

I had the venison pasta and my wife had the burger. The shocker of dinner was the side salads. They were vinegrette based and the tomato dressing was wonderful

We would have to say that we had about the worst dinner we've ever had at a restauant. Half of a roast chicken was two pieces with some BBQ-type sauce on them. The BBQ pork ribs were inedible. The Brussel sprouts appetizer was good, however.

Being from Boston area sometimes you can take the boy out of the corn beef. Best sandwich Eva! My wife had fish tacos and we both had cowboy backed beans. Ate outside beside the creek set back from Elk Ave. Highly recommend. Staff top notch....Had burgers, steak and salads. Quality entrees.More

We walked by and said sure let’s try it, No expectations. What a wonderful place to discover. The brussels sprouts were the best we have ever had . Everyone in the group enjoyed their meals and cocktails, not 1 complaint . We knew this restaurant...seemed a little different than a basic small town place . Once we got back to the condo we looked up the chef and discovered he has worked in some top places in the country. We will definitely go back and visit .More

Went for Valentines Dinner- didn’t realize it was Valentines Day- and they were very accommodating. Squeezed us in with all their reservations. Burgers were good. Bison meatloaf was good. Tasty food but a little pricy for what it is.

What I love about Crested Butte in general is that it is separated from the ski village - so it has retained a sense of community. What I love about Coal Creek Grill is that the food is fabulous and it is a place the...locals go. The chef has been trained in Europe, and the breadth of the meals available show. We've eaten here for breakfast and dinner, and it is continually filled, which means people have discovered this gem. Staff is great, owner (and chef) is available for brief chats and thank yous, and I will return here every time I visit the historic town of Crested Butte.More

I arrived at 7:30 pm on a Tuesday evening for dinner, but was told that they were already closed since it my was a slow evening (even though they are supposed to be open until 9 pm). When I told the host that I had...driven for 15 minutes specifically to have dinner at their restaurant, he just shrugged his shoulders as if to say “oh well”. Obviously I won’t be going back.More
