Description: Since 1974 The Margarita at PineCreek has been serving fine food, spirits, good times and memories. Our focus has always been on serving great food in a comfortable setting. Our eclectic cooking style is innovative, yet recognizable and we use the freshest possible ingredients. Our staff (some here for 30 years) serves in a professional, unpretentious manor, creating a refreshing & relaxed atmosphere. The Margarita thrives on local customers while appealing to the many out of town visitors looking for a true local experience. We are an independent, local, community-driven restaurant. We host many local events and fundraisers as well as: the Colorado Farm and Art Market, a "Dinner and a Movie" series, special wine dinners & many culinary events to appeal to the varied tastes of our customers.

We have continued to frequent tie patio of the Margarita and are firmly convinced that the Margarita has the best patio(s) in Colorado Springs. So if you have time, you should visit. Whether you go for lunch (the salads are great!), a drink in the evening (they have a great wine list!), to dinner and a movie, or just an evening out, this is the one patio you must try if you are in Colorado Springs. We spent a recent evening on the second patio (the subterranean one right off the basement bar) and had a wonderful evening. Great soup, great bread, great mussels, great pork chop, and wonderful service!

My husband and I had a date night. We decided to try Margarita at Pine Creek as we had several friends suggest it. We each had a three course meal at $36 pp. Salads were decent, main dishes were great (pork chop and NY strip), the deserts were the best suprised.
We both got things we were not sure about and wow! My husband got Panna cotta with berries- AMAZING. I got the rhubarb upside down cake - sweet and delightful. It only took us 19 years to try this restaurant but we will return!

We looked forwarded to visiting The Margarita for our anniversary. The crab bisque had virtually no crab in it; the mussels were miniscule. My red snapper was SWIMMING in oil as well as the underlying layers of veggies and starch. My husband said that his steak was good, but not particularly notable. Our waitress asked how our apps were and we said, "they were good", and she said "it looks it!" as if we were cavemen devouring everything. Anyway, after $128, including tip, we probably won't return, although we've been going there for over 25 years. A very disappointing experience.

the rustic exterior encloses one of the great restaurants. It reminds me of the Herb Farm in Seattle except affordable. The food is fresh and menu changes daily based on what is available. except for the soup d'jour which is based on recipes from the early days of the restaurant 40 Years Ago. if you can, eat in one of the patios. Charming.Summertime Fridays feature live music and a movie.As a couple, we had a five course meal and a bottle of wine for $125. For the quality, a great value.Reservations recommended.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while staying at a motel nearby. We read trip advisor reviews and decided to give it a try; though from the exterior it appears it needs some TLC. Having young children and a party of 10, we were welcomed and given a table in an area that was slightly secluded; appreciated since 3 and 4 year olds can get restless during a 2 hour meal. The service, food, and personnel are top notch. This is a definite if in the area.
