“Great sandwiches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Wife and I stopped here for lunch on a Sunday. Not many options in Cripple Creek that arent inside a casino. I had the philly cheese steak and my wife had the BLT, both with fries. Fries were very good, fast food style and crispy. My steak and cheese was one of the best I've had a in a while, with three types of peppers (red, yellow and green), fresh mushrooms instead of onions (substituted) and a lot of sliced steak (not that shredded Steak-Um stuff) on a hoagie roll. Wife raved about the BLT. Had mozzarella sticks with marinara and ranch appetizer--also very good. Menu consists of four or so appetizers, pizza and a long list of sandwiches, burgers, and other usual pub fare like chicken tenders and fried shrimp. Didnt have a beer but bar seemed to have typical assortment of Colorado beers.

“Good food means long wait.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We ate here because there was a line to get into the place. It was definitely worth the wait. The workers tried their best to serve everyone timely. They were 'running' around. Gave them extra tip for their hard work. Have the chili cheese fries....they're the bomb......

“"Favorite place yet"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

While on a motorcycle ride through the country we decided to stop at "The Creek". I am not one to normally write a review but, I was so impressed with this place I have to tell other people. We were worn out from our ride but this place was amazing. I ordered us a couple of drinks and we asked who we thought was the waitress for some menu's. She said you should try our Chili, sounded good so that is what we got and ohhh man is it good. I have had chili all over the country and this was the best damn chili I have ever had. After some Chili and drinks I soon found out we had been served by the Owner Janice Nance. She is one of the nicest people I met in the area. She offered up some great advice about areas to travel to on the motorcycle and sat with us most of the time. I just thought it must be a fluke to have the owner of a restaraunt take the time to spend with us just because she new we were out of towners. Nope not a fluke as I found from other people in the town, they do their best to meet all new and repeat customers as if they were family. Thank you Janice & Dan for making our trip even that much better.

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

While looking for somewhere to stop for a late lunch, we found this gem of a place in amongst all the casinos along the main street and had the best Philly steak and cheese sandwich ever! It came loaded with chips and coleslaw and was great value - much nicer, tastier and better presented than the far more expensive dinner out we had the night before! Pam, the manager, was great to talk with and very friendly. All in all a great place to eat and we would thoroughly recommend it.
