Terrible service.Waiter definitely catered to locals.Asked for a glass of red wine,Waiter said none was available.Ten minutes later a local is served red wine.Is this a sustainable business model? Guess so!

We requested the patio in our reservation and were sat in the street. That is not the same thing and there were empty tables on the patio. The table was dirty, the chair seats were sagging so much they were very uncomfortable, the rug was totally filthy! Wedge salad was not a wedge at all, it was a head of romaine cut in half. Steak was alright, potato side dish was not good at all. service was a little slow. Had to smell cigarette smoke from smokers hanging out on the sidewalk. Would not recommend or go back.

We had a great time on the patio. The staff was very friendly and the food was excellent. Bison glazed meatloaf was awesome!! We were seated on time and the patio area is very cute. I plan to return next time I'm in town!

This was probably the worst dinner we've ever had. I ordered the roasted half-chicken, which consisted of two pieces slathered in some sort of sauce.My husband had the pork ribs, which were inedible. The setting outside next to the creek was very nice and the historic building was adjoining the outdoor dining was interesting.

We were seated creekside as requested. The spacing between the tables was more than adequate. Service was prompt and the food was good. I consider Coal Creek to be a consistently good restaurant in Crested Butte. They did not disappoint this evening.

The food at Coal Creek is delicious. I love the atmosphere sitting out on the deck beside the creek. It’s also fun to watch the bustle of Elk Avenue. I find their prices are very reasonable and the wait staff very friendly and helpful.

Doug’s street tacos are excellent. Our party of 6 will be back again for lunch. His outdoor seating is attractive, especially if you can arrange a creekside table.

First time here, food was excellent! A bit pricey but worth it. We had the flatiron steak with the potato pie and the tobacco onions, a dinner salad as a starter and creme brulee for dessert. It was all outstanding. We will be back!

I would recommend Coal Creek to anyone visiting CB. It was not without fault, a tight setting which is fine for groups up to 4, more than that and it feels a bit crowded. Our server was 50/50 on knowledgableness (that's right I made up a new word!) My wife had the Salmon salad which she very much enjoyed as it was smoked salmon. I had the New York which was probably the best value of the night. Order your steaks rare if you are a rare-med rare person. The beer list was great and the old fashioned I enjoyed was exceptional! I highly recommend and I will be back.

Really like this place! Ate here 3 yrs ago and when we returned for Christmas, made our Christmas dinner reservation for here. Love the trout with quinoa and others had short ribs and steak. Wings and brussel sprouts for appetizers were delicious. All the food is great and service wonderful! Highly recommend!

Excellent meal here. Food really was excellent t, wine selection and price very good. Lovely mountain town restaurant which was comfortable and cozy. We had a reservation for a birthday dinner on Christmas Eve and got there earlier than expected. They were able to get our group of six in early which was great. Highly recommend!

This is a very interesting restaurant. Love the history of the building and the location!
First, the Salmon Flatbread appetizer was to DIE for!! Over the top. And lots of it. Will feed four and there was only two of us.
The Wedge salad was good. Pricey.
The Steak Frites were okay. (Let's face it, flank steak is not the tenderest cut of meat and this one was a bit chewy)
The wine selection by the glass was small and the Zinfandel I had could have been better.
