The atmosphere is good. The service was slow, the food was fair. I will most likely try it again and hope for better.

Enjoyed a great lunch here on 4th of July. We visit Creede a few times a year, and try different spots, most often. First timers at Tommyknockers, but we'll be back! Pleasant wait staff, hearty and tasty food, fun rustic mountain mining atmosphere.

Good food and cold beer. Full bar and open all year everyday. Nachos will fill you up. Nothing like the local flavor of this bar that dates back to the 1890's.

We enjoyed the BBQ sandwiches. They were out of wings. The service was good considering she was new, the place was packed and she had to go up and down a flight of stairs to serve us. But the place is neat- like an old...More

The Tommyknocker Tavern was established in 1999 by a group of locals in the historic mining town of Creede, Colorado. Over the last thirteen years, it has grown to be a popular spot for locals and tourists alike, featuring great live music all summer and fun local events throughout the winter! The Tavern's restaurant (The BBQ Bistro) serves great food in the casual setting of this historic Creede building with a spacious back patio. Delicious sandwiches, salads and our famous BBQ Ribs go great with our selection of both locally and globally brewed beers.
