Bear Creek Tavern

25940 Highway 74 Kittredge, CO 80457 | West Denver Suburbs | 303-674-9929

Location Description:

Owner Martha Koch took over Bear Creek Tavern in 1980, when it was still a country-fried roadhouse and bona fide biker bar. Today, their locals' clubhouse is a full-on restaurant. There's still plenty of character, but the Koches have upped the quality of what comes out of their kitchen. Look for hearty breakfasts, good steaks and a real surprise: Royal Red shrimp. Bear Creek is the only spot west of the Mississippi that serves these deep-water monsters.
