Nice people and a good place to relax. Some bartenders are excellent, others very nice but not good at drink mixing. Help in this town is drawn from the stable of actors from Creede Rep. Theater, it seems. Stick to beer or very simple cocktails,...More

We were surprised to find a BBQ joint in an old, historic building. Very attentive bartender/waiter, fast service from the kitchen and surprisingly good barbecue. I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to pulled pork, but this place did not disappoint. I'll stop...More

I've had lunch/dinner here many times. Not fancy but this isn't the JW. Good service in a small place. Virtually all main items are cooked on an outside grill. Staff is friendly. Food is not fancy but is very good. Busy during the summer and...More

We sat on the patio out back with a view of the mountains (and a few telephone wires). The smoked pork on the Cuban sliders was fall apart delicious and an indicator of what their BBQ and ribs must taste like. Quick, efficient service.

We were tooling around Creede and asked where can we get a drink. A local shop owner pointed us here. Great choice. A fun little back patio and the upstairs balcony is great. This is worth a stop for a drink.

Very good ribs, fall off the bone, very tender and moist . Off main road hidden gem. Seating semi- family style table or solo bar seat.

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

What a great find! We ended up in Creede on a Monday, not realizing the places friends had recommended were closed Mondays. So, we checked out Tommyknockers and were blown away. Cool, rustic place with a great ham and cheese sandwich, really good pulled pork...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.
