I was a long time fan of this restaurant. It in my opinion had the best burgers in town. But it has closed its doors for good. We do not yet know if someone will decide to try to re open but it has been...More

That doesn't affect The Creek's status as an excellent place (especially for lunch) in downtown Cripple Creek. The buffalo and elk burgers are superb, especially the elk (can't find that in many places), the BLT on sour dough excellent and then ... the onion rings...More

We stopped in and the place is beautiful. Owners live in Texas and really did a wonderful job restoring the historic building from 1897. A big thank you goes out to them. The food is cooked from scratch and absolutely delicious! They have pizza, Elk...More

Really good burgers. I was quite impressed and would visit again. Restaurant is only open a few days a week. Which was rather disappointing.

Little hole in the wall. Just ok, bar menu with greasy burgers and such. Service was a bit slow. 1st beer was skunky but promptly replaced with a fresh one. I think the waitress was a druggie. Food wasn't great but not awful either. Pretty...More

The sour grapes review that precedes this one is unfortunately not accurate. We had BLT & Philly steak, one with fresh cut fries and the other with onion rings. Fries and rings are worth the visit, sandwiches were average. Beer cold and service friendly. Didn't...More

The ranking of a five in a little town doesn’t mean a thing. We were hoping to enjoy some grilled burgers, but the creek did not deliver. The burgers were definitely fried and small. Puny would be a better word to describe them. My wife...More
