It just doesn't seem like their hearts are into it: the staff seemed like they were recovering from the night before and going through the motions. The Specials menu looked like most other restaurants so we went for some traditional dishes. The garden salad was obviously sitting in the refrigerator for several hours before reaching my table. The fried shrimp... More

Menu limited to lack-luster items that are mostly overpriced. They use what seem to be medical students for waiters that really do not care about doing it right. I tried what was supposed to be Gen Tso's Chicken and it was terrible. Had also a pulled pork dinner that was right out of a can. Beer selection was mostly American... More

We visited the Creekside several times during the last two years and have been underwhelmed. Today I had the perch dinner and cajun clam chowder.The chowder should be avoided by anyone with high blood pressure ,it was like eating a bowl of salt. The perch was greasy and definitely not fresh fish.It tasted like pre packed fish thrown in a... More

We live in town and this is one of our favorite places for an unpretentious dinner of great food from an extensive menu that has never hit a sour note yet! We take my world-traveled in-laws there and they love it too. Here's the thing--the menu is huge, they have specials, etc. and all of it has been delicious. Pulled... More

Recently had dinner at Creekside. The only really good thing we had there was the garlic bread they served. The salad was basic iceberg lettuce, a few grape tomatoes, croutons and a little red cabbage. The vinegar for the salad had some sort of sediment floating in the bottom of the bottle. The oil and vinegar bottles were kind of... More

This was my 3rd or 4th visit but I'd never tried their BBQ. Somehow missed it. Never again! My husband had the combo: 30-hour smoked brisket and chipotle-sauced pulled pork. I wanted his plate! (He did let me taste.) We were really hungry so we started off with the Steamed Mussels. Lovely and very good. Only complaint was that it... More

We had dinner with nearly a dozen friends before going to a movie. The waitress handle our meals promptly and efficiently, making sure we each had the correct checks and were done in time to get to the movie. Creekside has a large menu with many interesting dishes and a good collection of daily specials. I enjoyed the Oktoberfest special,... More

I had a very nice experience here with my son yesterday and would definitely recommend this place to anyone. We were waited on by a pleasant server who seemed to know the menu well. We started out with the bruschetta. I ordered the Pork Rib-eye which came with cheesy hash browns.. yummy.. I did choose to pay an upgrade and... More

Went to Creekside for lunch with friends yesterday. I hadn't been here in awhile and was surprised by the menu, it looked like a Coney Island menu. Anyway, the three of us ordered fish tacos, a mushroom burger and a turkey ruben. We had to return the burger because it was undercooked and we returned the turkey Ruben because the... More

We ate there again last night and had the usual okay food, service was slow, and our server "K" wasn't very talkative. It seemed like we were more of an annoyance to her than customers she wanted to return to the restaurant. The topper for us was when she dropped the credit card slip at our table she did not...
