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 really stand out. Atmosphere is nice, people are nicer and the old bar legitimately historic. Owners also help out where they can in the community, yet another plus. Definitely worth skipping out on the casino spots, and some of Cripple Creek's best shopping for souvenirs, etc., is on the same block. Parking never a problem, either.

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 burgers, Buffalo burgers, Beef, Chicken, Philly Steak and more. And they cut their fries and onion rings to order. Yummmyyy!!! The managers are wonderful. One of them was in the kitchen cooking our food. It was amazing. It was like being a grandma's house with family. I love the place!

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 typical of what I've come to expect in Cripple Creek.

Good raw product prepared well
