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.

Tasty (game and regular) burgers and meatloaf, and very good small plates at this lovely garden restaurant in Crested Butte. Make a reservation and get an outside table by the creek.

We’ve eaten here many times, the food and service are always good and the value is excellent. Doug has added several new items I had the venison bologenese and it was delicious. The bison meatloaf is to die for.

We took our friends to this Resturant. We were a
Table for 6 on a Sunday evening. We made a reservation several days ahead of time. Our server advised us that they were out of over half of the items on the menu. They should of called us when they knew this.

We celebrated a birthday, and got to sit outside by the water. The food was amazing, and service was good although when we ordered the trout dish to split they ended up bringing us two trout dishes and did not hear us. Our evening was lovely otherwise. I will definitely be back

It was important to reserve a table and ask for creekside in the comment section. When we arrived at our requested time there was a reserved sign on the table. So glad we went through Open Table. Our waiter was quite knowledgeable about the wines and we thoroughly enjoyed his recommendation.
