It is tradition for my husband and I to go to the Barking Spider when we visit North Creek once a year. It is a great dive bar, you never know what experience you are going to get but one thing is always consistent ice...cold beer at a reasonable price. We have had really poor service before but this past visit was fantastic. Our bartender (a pretty young woman) was so nice to us, didn’t make us feel out of place at all.More
We went here for some drinks and burgers the night we arrived at The Alpine Lodge, and I seriously cannot say how wonderful and fun it was! We came into the bar where no seats were open at the counter, but two people almost immediately...welcomed us in and started a conversation with us. There was a great environment of a bunch of locals who all were super funny and respectful to us.
We had the cheap burgers and wraps, and wanted to go back the next night for more! Really cozy place, cheap eats and brews, and my cheeks hurt by the end of the night from laughing!More
My best friend and I were staying at The Alpine Lodge and saw this bar was within walking distance. So glad we went! The staff were great and very friendly. Service was excellent and so were the drinks!
This is a hole in the wall place (in the best sense of the phrase) to have a beer or two after skiing. Clearly more locals than skiers and they're all friendly (including the woman tending bar). Stop by for a beer. We did not...have food, but they do serve some stuff.More
We were told the pub food is delicious...but never got to try it. When walking into the bar it smelled like Bourbon Street during Marci Gras. I like going to local businesses when traveling and not tourist attractions....but could not manage to have a bite...here. In the Barking Spider’s defense....they could of had a party in the pub the night before or, the day of our visit (but it must have been one heck of a beer party).More
We went here twice while staying a couple days in North Creek. The first time was just for drinks and the bartender was nice and personable, the locals were friendly, and we couldn't help but notice how beautiful the woodwork all over the inside is....We went back for dinner and had an equally good bartender and a really good burger and the buffalo chicken wrap was great. The sauce was hot but still had flavor and the chicken wasn't fried, which was nice. It's a small menu but they do it really well and I'll take that over a large menu done poorly any day. If we lived there that would definitely be our favorite watering hole.More
