Replacing a cook with a chef is the first good thing. New flooring and a shorter eclectic menu make it an interesting place to eat. Also replacing sometimes surly disinterested waitress with attentive younger staff really helps.

We stopped by for lunch and had a good burger. Very quiet and the view is pretty. Cozy and friendly local place.

I have to admit I've only been for breakfast but it is always great! Really generous portions, wide choice and great atmosphere. The view of the creek is an added bonus.

The service was pretty darn slow. We would order a drink and never get it or have to remind them once we could finally get someone. The food was okay. Just takes forever for any and everything from drinks to the food and then to pay, we had to wait a while to even get the bill. Just kind of... More

Nice, mountain atmosphere. If available, get a table with a window overlooking Bear Creek. During our meal, we observed a dozen mule deer coming over to the creek for a sunset sip. A strikingly peaceful view while having tasty suppers. We started with the cheese quesadilla. In all honesty, this is the BEST quesadilla we've ever had! I'm sure it... More

If you think green chile sauce should be its own food group and smothering nearly anything on your plate with it makes it heavenly this is the place for you! We sat outside by the river, drank a Fat Tire, ate a breakfast burrito and chile rellenos in the afternoon. It was perfect and the burrito even tasted better the... More

I love this place. No, the food isn't the best you've ever had, but it ain't bad. The beers are cold in big, frosty mugs. Best of all, the restaurant hangs right over a decent sized creek, where you can often see wildlife approach. Last time I was there, I saw a very large male elk hanging out for almost... More

We have been here several times and have enjoyed every time. The food is very good and always reasonable priced. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is wonderful beside the creek. Dining in or on the patio very pleasant. Inside there are views of the creek and the décor is country. Will be going again soon.

Good food at reasonable prices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Nice setting next to rushing creek. Humming bird feeders outside window, occasional deer sighting. Pleasant staff. Shaded patio.
