A great place for both food (dining) and beers, especially Belgian beers. There are other places around the city if you're looking for massive on-tap selections (like FatHeads, Smokin' Joes and HopHouse) but for Belgian on-tap this place can't be beat. There's a great selection of fine Belgian beers, both on-tap and bottled.

Dozens of US micro's and craft beers plus more beers from a worldwide selection are offered in bottles. Prices can get a bit high compared to other local venues.

Food- outstanding and a great selection of interesting fare.

Service-- fantastic, attentive and generally very beer-savvy.

Ambience is great, somewhat quaint for dining and the bar is rather nice in its own separate room.

Parking is adequate for the amount of clientele' the building can hold.

4.21/5  rDev -6.4%
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4.25 | selection: 4 | food: 4 | $$$$

Endearing short L-shaped bar with a Euro feel to the interior. Pleasing Victorian exterior, like an architectural layer cake with red icing (awnings). Great happy hour vibe (and you can't shake much at half-price Belgian crafts), plus the late night vibe has a good bustle on Friday and Saturday nights. Lots of great taps that are bountiful enough to not hate on what might be slow rotation. Especially, the Belgians and other imports; they're known to remain rooted for a month plus. Too many staples in those categories.

Crafts get a new face at a decent rate. Usually, nothing too exceptional, but they're getting better about bringing in one-offs. Prices are still outrageous. Belgian draft markup is highway robbery, and the bottles in the cooler are mostly flagrantly high. Freshness is maintained well. Only been burned a handful of times in ten years of frequenting this locale. Lines are nearly pristine; all Belgians taste great from the tap. Some cellar offerings will tempt you, despite high price tags.

Bar staff is great. Very knowledgeable, more so than the wait staff. Food is excellent. Great burgers, thin-crust pizzas, and house-made soups. Monthly feature menus have awesome selections; notably Belgianfest and Oktoberfest. Their mussels are hit or miss.

Besides value, this is a great neighborhood beer bar with a love for everything Belgian. Recommended. Meet me here!

First to put my visit into perspective. My friends and I visit a different city each year to watch the NCAA Mens Hockey tournament. My job is to locate the best beer bar in the city, find an affordable place to stay nearby, and then figure out how to make it to the arena for the games when were not sampling great beers.

The Creekhouse fit the bill in spades!

The only thing to add from the many positive reviews was they now have a Prix Fixe 3-course meal for a scant $18. The first night I started with the Wild Boar Meatloaf entre, Buffalo Bites appetizer, and polished it off w/ a chocolate stout w/ my Belgian pudding dessert. All delicious.

We were in town for four days and spent much of it at The Creekhouse.

And one other perk, the "Internet Jukebox" was the best I'd ever experienced. As a an old rocker from the 60's and 70's, the selection of Frank Zappa, the Mothers of Invention, Root Boy Slim. and the Electric Prunes was simply heaven for me and my friends.

The staff, from the waiter/waitresses, bartenders, to the management were all fantastic.
