“The New Manager Cleta Long Is The Best!”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

The Creek is our home away from home, to gather with friends and family, Cleta is a part of that family! She goes above and beyond for everyone! The creek has the exact same hard working staff since opening. The food is great, seeing all your friends is great. Sharing life is what The Creek is all about! The good times and the bad. I dont' know who localaptroncolorado is since they don't have a name and I have never heard of them. My husband Chef Paul and I go to The Creek and love it we have a blast...Good Time's thats what it's about. We love Cleta and we are so happy she is at The Creek! Come on in and meet her.

“New manager doesn't do well”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

We had been to "The Creek" numerous times. The manager was everywhere, friendly, courteous and fun. Food always out of the kitchen hot and wonderful.

Went back this fall and there is a new manager. Things are not working. Understaffed and lacking organization. We did get our food hot, but only because the kitchen serve window is so small that the cooks served our table. Still good food, but not worth the hassle anymore - so sad.

We value your feedback, positive and negative. We are sorry your experience was not satisfactory to you. If you choose to return, we will do everything in our power to ensure a better experience.
With our recent transitions of a new manager and implementing a POS system, there are always a few bumps that always need to be smoothed out and they are smoothing out. Our employee motto is TEAM-Together Everyone Accomplishes More. Our kitchen staff has always delivered food to tables when they are not busy in the kitchen, the serving window is the same size it always has been since we opened 3 years ago, and our new manager is very efficient. We thank you for your patronage.

“Tried the rest! This is the best!!”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Found the Creek a few years ago. Everything we've ate has been great! Service is very friendly and it's very clean. After being disappointed, at many of the other places in Cripple Creek we have ate at. We always end up back at the Creek.
Thanks for being consistent.

“Lovely place I didn't expect.”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Was up for the day from Denver. Looking for late lunch. The Creek has been beautifully remodeled, leaving the original19th century brick walls and some of the wonderful original woodwork. Stained glass lamps, lovely bar, and the best hand-dipped onion rings I have had. Philly cheesesteak was everything you would want to expect - if you were from Philly! Great food by Jim, whom we met, and Cieta, one of the owners, made us feel as though we had always been coming in, And it was quiet...no casino...so that you were able to actually talk to another person. I plan to take a friend up to see the colors next weekend, and the real treat for her will be The Creek. Going to have to try some of that chili! Thanks, Nances, for a very classy and friendly place where I didn't expect it!

“Great sandwiches”
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.
