“Great place to have a beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

I always love to stop by Spring Creek Tavern after a Summer plunge in Spring Creek or after visiting my favorite hardware store across the street. I haven't eaten much on the bar menu but its a great place to have a cold beer. They have a good selection on draught and friendly folks to boot.

“Great Spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Grabbed a late dinner here after arriving in Hot Springs for the weekend. Food was great, service was great, and they had an excellent selection of craft beers on tap! Patio would be a definite plus in warmer weather! Also, the live music was great!

“Nice atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

We just stopped in this tavern for a quick drink and also had some chili cheese fries. The vibe was great and so were the people. We went in the off season and the parking was easy a but I could see the peak season being crowded. The food was good and the beer selection was nice. Just no liquor in this town.

“Great Relaxed Dining and Atmosphere in Hot Springs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

We just returned from a two day stay in Hot Springs. We ate lunch on the covered deck overlooking Spring Creek. For lunch, I had a Cobb Salad and my wife had a wrap. The food was very good and reasonably priced. In addition, the service was excellent. It was a relaxed meal (that is, a little slow if you were rushed ... but we were not). In fact, it was pleasant rest after a 2 hour drive from Knoxville. The following evening, we had dinner at the tavern. Wow! Fantastic wood fired pizza. In addition, the microbrew selection is good, with a few great beers. Again service was top notch.

“Unbeatable food and beer selection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

It was quite a surprise to find such great food and beer in Hot Springs. The service was excellent and everything came out just right. You HAVE to try the hand-made cheese sticks!
