Cedar Creek is close to our house and we go about twice a month. It has a nice relaxing atmosphere with nice surroundings. The food is consistently good. The cocktails are good and the bar entertainers are fun.

This was a nice place to have dinner with business associates. The food was plentiful and very good. The "prime rib sandwich" was a huge slab of prime rib on a smallish piece of bread. Not exactly a sandwich, but very tasty with the accompanying horseradish sauce.

What an incredible, sensory dining experience. The food, service, and atmosphere were top rate. I'll start with the food/drinks: KEY LIME MARTINI OMG!!! What an erotic drink. Every sip gave me a sensation of total bliss! The first taste sensation is the clean, crisp dryness from the lime; then the coconut flavor; and finally, the frothy, creamy, finish. TO DIE... More

FACT: People care about green living. FACT: Meat, chicken and fish raised and killed are killing the planet. FACT: Cedar Creek Inn offers nothing substantial for vegans and vegetarians except a crappy must-be-modified, un-inspired salad. This place really sucks if you don't want to kill the planet and kill animals. I am dragged here by my family and I hate... More

Cedar Creek in Brea is a terriffic restaurant. I have been going there a handful of times every year since the place opened. It has become one of my favorite local restaurants for its wonderful food and casual but sophisticated atmosphere. The menu is original and offers a huge variety of choices from light meals to steak dinners. The food... More

We're from New York and travel and write extensively all over California. Been to every Cedar Creek Inn - The best by far is the Palm Springs unit, the Laguna Property and the Brea property are by far the worst. Unattentive staff, bad, bad food and the worst of service are the highlights of these properties. San Juan Capistrano is... More

My husband and I spontaneously ended up at this beautiful bungalow-styled restaurant as it was open and Outback was not. We went with the intent to wait for Outback to open--we never left and were glad! This service was impecable as was the food. The ambiance is casual--however you wouldn't feel out of place in dressy clothing. The food was... More
