Very busy, rain kept us inside; no fault of the restaurant. Slightly disappointed in food, but we will return next year when back in Crested Butte.
Nice casual restaurant with both indoor and outdoor dining. I had the flank steak and my husband had the bison meatloaf. Both tasty. Service was very slow. Server forgot our credit card in his pocket while we were trying to pay—other than that very nice.
Special trip with our son and daughter in law. Perfect evening!
WE sat outside on a beautiful night. Had the delicious dates stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in bacon - I could have made a meal of them! There were six of us and several had the burger which was great, a few had the Full Monty which was 2 tacos, a small Caesar salad and a side of mixed beans. I had the short rib tacos - yum!!! Another person had the mahi tacos - again YUM. They had a nice wine selection and we felt prices were reasonable.
Wonderful food and experience!
The service was poor and slow. The wait staff forgot things and did not get some items requested. They were not busy at the time , just disorganized, although they were very pleasant.
The bison meatloaf ( $19)was good and the nachos a step above average.
Enjoyed sitting outside.
Always good food. The buffalo meatloaf is outstanding. The owner is always there making sure that all is done well. One of the best bargains in Crested Butte and they take reservations.
Great little spot in downtown CB!! Kind of a more limited menu but staff worked with us to modify some selections. Grilled salmon was tasty and my spouse had the Ruben and really liked it. Good beer and wine selection too! Will return for another visit.
Restaurant was average. Out of the appetizer item we wanted. Food was tasty but steak frites disappointing. More diversity of menu choices would have been preferred. Me nu items a bit pricey.
Great restaurant! Food was delicious. Service was outstanding! We will definitely return to this restaurant!
Coal Creek is located on the first floor of an old rustic hotel. Service is fast and food is good but not exceptional. Worth a visit for a drink at the bar or a look at the restaurant.
We have had breakfast, brunch, lunch and now Christmas Dinner at this restaurant. Locally owned and operated, great friendly staff, and beautiful summer porch. The cocktails are beautiful and they have a great list of draft beers and wine choices. We have now tasted the homemade granola, banana bread, steak and fries, hamburgers, nachos and the buffalo meatloaf and short ribs.....way impressed with every bite.
friendly staff, quick service, great value, lively bar
We had the most marvelous Thanksgiving dinner at Coal Creek Grill. They made it such a special celebration. And delicious!
When for Thanksgiving Dinner. They had a great turkey special. The food was great as it always is when I go - especially for breakfast.
The Atlantic Salmon entree was excellent. Well stocked bar. Nice variety of whiskey and whisky. Servers were polite and friendly. Can get crowded for dinner so make a reservation. Breakfast is a hidden treat as well. No long lines and the granola pancakes were outstanding!
Coal Creek Restaurant offers excellent dishes (Chef/Owner Doug worked for 6 years at the Mansion in Dallas.), the desserts are extraordinary (thanks to Christine), the patio next to the creek is perfect for relaxing and sipping, and the wait staff is attentive and friendly. We highly recommend Coal Creek Restaurant!
We ate dinner on the patio with our 2 daughters, son-in-laws and twin two-year old grandsons. What we especially liked was the patio dining - nice shaded patio near a creek. It gave the grandsons lots to do while waiting for dinner! Patio is very pet friendly - there were two cute puppies across from us and each was served a bowl of water upon arrival! My daughter ordered the garlic fries for an appetizer and thought they were great! Given the size of our group - not sure what everyone ordered, but, it appeared everyone liked their dinners due to their clean plates! The service was a little slow - but, we were in vacation mode - and since the grandsons could get down and walk around without being disruptive, it wasn't a problem.
The short rib was the BEST I've ever had!!
Pleasantly surprised by the great food in what appeared to be the same restaurant as was run by the previous owners.
My husband & I have eaten here many times over the past 2 yrs. we have never been disappointed. The house cured pastrami Rueben is great. We have eaten their hot pretzel, tacos, nachos, burgers and salads. Everything was hot and delicious. The buffalo burger was a little dry but that's the nature of the meat. The staff is helpful and funny. We are, always, greeted with a smile and feel very welcome at this friendly place. Great for breakfast, too
Perfect in every way...really. People, food, service, atmosphere, care for tourists, memory making. Thank you, Open Table, for Cold Creek Grill, Crested Butte, Colorado! Loved making reservations before we left our Teas home. 😊
Management was terrible, rude and tense. We arrived just prior to happy hour ending and when we finally got service 15 minutes after being seated management refused to honor the happy hour price (I kid you not - it was ONE minute after HH ended). Waitstaff was trying but all were obviously unhappy to be there.
Try the bourbon (French Onion style) soup. Seriously good! Patio is riverfront, very nice!
We were pleasantly surprised on several levels. The wait staff attentive and friendly. The cocktails were unique and very tasty. We shared a delicious salad and the salmon entree could hold its own with any five star restaurant in any major city. It had a good proportion size, was cooked to perfection with a crispy exterior and placed on a bed of spinach and homemade mushroom ravioli. The plate sprinkled with Crimini mushrooms and decorated with splashes of red color via a beet coulis. A splendid evening!
Creekside outdoor patio was extremely nice. Menu is somewhat limited.
Quaint restaurant & cool astmosphere! Service was great. We had Buffalo burger & my son had the New York strip.
There were several things on the menu that I was considering, but finally settled on the Buffalo Stroganoff. Hands down the best Stroganoff I've ever had. Fantastic. Others at the table had trout, chicken fried steak and a burger, and everyone spoke very highly of their meals. I tried a bite of my wife's burger, and although it couldn't compete with my Stroganoff, it was very tasty with a backyard grill flavor. Live music was very good, but too loud for the space, and made dinner conversation with anyone other than the person next to you difficult. Only downside in my opinion. Highly recommended!
The waitress either failed to place our order or kitchen lost it. Our entrees were served almost 50 minutes after we ordered. The burgers arrived not cooked as requested. So, they had to be taken back to kitchen again. This place is a disaster with service. I have been either living or coming to CB for over 32 years. I have never experienced such ineptness. Needless to say, I will never come back here. Too many quality options in town where they take pride in their service
We were in town visiting with our daughter and her fiance and had a lovely birthday dinner to celebrate our three birthday's this month. The food was AMAZING. Best meal we had in CB. The restaurant made a special dessert for us to celebrate with. Our daughter loves cookie cakes and the cooking in the pan was perfect!
Food and servcice were very good. The live music was a little loud for the small dining area
Very nice dinner with good gluten free choices. I enjoyed the tortilla soup and my partner had the buffalo burger served with a ton of fries. Live music was top notch
I was pleasantly surprised the menu is on the small side but everyone (5 of us) enjoyed their meal. I had the boneless short rib w risotto it was very good.
Everything thing was excellent. But we drove 800 miles for the buttermilk pie and it wasn't on the menu. But the cobbler was an excellent substitute.
Service was friendly but uneven. Food was good overall but not entirely spot on.
Great place to eat and not overly priced.
Disappointing. Limited menu, I had read a good review on the steaks, and we thought we would try it, but we thought we would try something from the Specialty menu. I asked the waiter, Matt, "How is the chicken fried steak?". "Uh, its good" he said. "And how is the Spare Rib?" "Uh, its good". So then I had to ask "How is it served?" etc. We ended up ordering those two dishes. The chicken fried steak was bland, overcooked and greasy - you'd be better off at Dennys. My wife fared a bit better with the spare rib. Overall, very disappointing meal for the price. The setting on the deck is nice. Food is mediocre.
Very good food. Had beef ribs with risotto and kale. Excellent. Medium size restaurant with a "separated" bar. Very casual. Go for the food.
Awesome experience. Table was on patio overlooking creek. Amazing view and ambiance. The tacos were out of this world. The nachos were large and tasty! Fantastic service.
a few too many dogs on the patio for me, this is not a brew pub. the food and service were way above par .
