A delightfully special place to eat in Creede!
The guestrooms hold their historic charm, but it’s the restaurant that surprises; it’s decidedly not small town. Established in 2015 by John Arp, The Restaurant at The Creede Hotel has been a very popular lunch and dinner spot right on Main Street. The new kitchen is finally complete, offering fine dining without being too fancy—excellent food, great wines, a pleasant atmosphere indoors and outdoors, and friendly hospitality.
About The Restaurant
John Arp is the signature chef of The Restaurant. He has a long history in Creede, both as a chef and as a featured actor at the Creede Repertory Theatre for seven seasons. In 2008 he attended culinary school and began catering in Denver. After pursuing that for years, he realized his dream of running a restaurant and so The Restaurant was born here in Creede! Arp’s Restaurant originally opened a few doors down but the chef moved to The Creede Hotel and Restaurant in 2018. After our kitchen rebuild, the dining room and outdoor courtyard will be available everyday during the summer. The Restaurant will seat and serve more people than ever! The courtyard is a favorite dining spot during warm sunny days with beautiful flowers and glistening aspens. We will continue to host various musical acts under the tent. Please see our Events Calendar.
The Creede Restaurant features classic American dishes along with international comfort food. Our specials each night highlight different culinary traditions, such as Italian, Asian, German, Cajun, and more. Situated in the beautiful Rocky Mountain wilderness, we find some magic in a whimsical tour of the world on our plates! Our bartenders have themed special drinks to pair with our nightly specials. Our goal is to prepare the familiar flavors of home and also explore international favorites with an elegant touch.
