Really very good food. We had the Brussel sprout and chorizo appetizer and the bison meatloaf entrée. Both were very tasty!

The initial service was slow, then we complained and it got better. They even comped us a glass of wine. The wedge salad and short ribs are winners.

My favorite place in Crested Butte. They can accommodate small or large groups. Quiet enough to have conversations. But best of all the food and the service is always excellent.

The online menu did not match the menu when we dined and were disappointed that the items we wanted were not available. The desert which was supposed to be a hot cookie, arrived cold and dry as it was pre-cooked. The manager should meet with diners to provide service recovery as needed.

We enjoyed a great dinner sitting out on the terrace beside the creek on a beautiful, warm evening. Two of us had the kale salad with grilled salmon that was cooked perfectly. They have a nice wine list by the glass. Our server was very attentive and food came very fast. Would totally recommend to visitors and locals!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

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!
