Stopping in at the Creek for a late lunch we found the special's menu just too inviting and had to forego our desire to try the pizza. My husband and his brother were indeed surprised by the quality (and size) of their elk and buffalo...More

Let me first say that dining in Cripple Creek is terrible in general, so compared to the rest of CC, the Creek is amazing. But compared to the rest of the world, it's nothing to write home about. Last week, they "ran out of food"...More

This was the best pizza that I have had in a long time. I love pizza, so I like to try it at different restaurants. The crust was crispy, not too thin, not too thick. The sauce was delicious and the cheese was fresh. We...More

We had the delicious homemade onion rings; the small order was enough for 3 people. Two in our party had the taco salad special and it was quite good. The hamburgers looked great, but we didn't get to try them.
