Many people told us this was great. We had our kids but didn't stay. There is only seating at the bar. Looked like a fun place for adults!

The barking spider is a cool little bar with cold beer and great food. We order some burgers and they were great. Beer selection is decent and there is something for everyone.

This is a great bar, great service, staff, etc…. We had burgers, quesadias, wraps, --they have it all, and all very reasonable! The staff was great, and patient with a huge number of over-excited wedding travelers!

Absolutely the best burger in town. A great place for lunch and the best value. Very friendly staff and owner. Chicken Quesadilla or Burgers are delicious and you get plenty for your buck. This is a pub so probably not good for taking kids there.

I was in North Creek on a skiing vacation and discovered this little hole in the wall. They had a fair selection of local craft beers as well as traditional American lagers. The bartender and patrons were all friendly and the television volume was quiet inviting plenty of conversation. Though I did not play, there was even shuffleboard at the... More

The choice of wines and brews is great for a small community. Locals meet here often to share the experiences of the day! Food choices are few, but, it is some of the best around with prices very affordable!

Stopped by on advice of a bartender at Gore Mountain. We wanted a quick bar type spot for food and drinks. This was a great place. I had the chicken bacon ranch wrap and have to say it was one of the best I've ever had! Beer was ice cold. Bartender was friendly. Food was good. Very small bar, but... More

We were hungry and tired after a day working in the woods. We knew if we went back to the motel and showered, we wouldn't feel like going out. Where could we grab a great hamburger?

It is a local bar, but the bartender was very attentive and the beer is ice cold. Good stop after rafting and hiking with Square Eddy Expeditions.
