We summer in South Fork, CO - not far from Creede. We always have to stop at Tommyknocker Tavern for drinks & a meal while we're here. This time the only seats available were at the bar & we had a great time visiting with...More

Did a day trip to Creede & stopped in here for a lunch (for 4) when the outdoor BBQ line was too long. It was a nice surprise - many of the sandwiches had a different twist. I ordered the Papoose (spicy sandwich) and it...More

We come every year! Love the food, the service, and the atmosphere. The club sandwich and the ribs are the best.

Loved our lunch at the tavern. Our waiter was very friendly and accommodating. He was the only waiter for the establishment and has tables upstairs, downstairs, and on the patio. He managed to provide great service to all. If we are in the area again...More

As some reviews suggest, Tommyknocker Tavern is a bar frequented by many locals. On the rainy day we were there, as many locals were at the bar as there were tourists at the table. That doesn't make the place any better or worse. What we...More

The Tommyknocker Tavern was established in 1999 by a group of locals in the historic mining town of Creede, Colorado. Over the last thirteen years, it has grown to be a popular spot for locals and tourists alike, featuring great live music all summer and fun local events throughout the winter! The Tavern's restaurant (The BBQ Bistro) serves great food in the casual setting of this historic Creede building with a spacious back patio. Delicious sandwiches, salads and our famous BBQ Ribs go great with our selection of both locally and globally brewed beers.
