Awesome deck area with good sandwiches. Chili cheeseburger was huge and tasty, fries were hot and fresh. The environment was a bit rowdy but it could've just been that particular group. Either way, a fun time!

Hot Springs, NC has this little treasure. The food is great and it sits next to a creek. You can sit indoors or the covered outdoor dining place. One of the best items on the menu is the cheese sticks that are unique. The dry rub wings are great as is the wood fired pizza. They always have a great... More

Had lunch here our first day in town. Fantastic burger! The cheesecake looked great, we didn't have dessert, but it looked awesome. Our waiter was very attentive, he didn't let us run out of drinks and checked on us frequently even though the restaurant was busy.

We ate dinner here while passing thru on our way home from Asheville. I had the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich with waffle fries. It was excellent! Chicken was still crispy despite being smothered in house buffalo sauce and was sandwiched between two pieces of think Texas type toast that were perfectly buttered and toasted. Nice selection of drinks and the outside... More

This place was booming with business inside and out. We sat outdoors on the covered deck overlooking a creek. The deck is really nice with plastic roll down coverings for rainy days. They have live entertainment on the deck. The food was really good and their selection of craft beers will please anyone. Lots of hikers!

We enjoyed 4 days in Hot Springs for our 20Th Anniversary and tried all the local food and beer. By far - Spring Creek had the best made to order food! My favorite was the Cobb Salad and my husbands was the wood fired stove pizza. As far as appetizers - they had wonderful Hand made cheese sticks made with... More

We were in Hot Springs for the French Broad Fest. With the rain coming down we wanted to have a dry snack and a beer. We saw the blue bear in the window and knew we found the right place! The wings were awesome and the beer was ice cold. Will definitely return the next time we're in town.

Eating on the patio area was really nice with the creek running by. The food and the service were both very good.

Enjoyable. Crowded but service was good. Both ordered pizza which was cooked in a fired bricked oven and it was wonderful. Pet friendly deck also.

My wife and I had a nice lunch at our "new local" the Hot Springs Tavern in Hot Springs, NC today. It is Saturday and the town is full with Appalachian Trail walkers. We both had good burgers and waffle fries. The big draw is the vast number of micro brew beers available. Our table today sat next to 6... More
