Good little restaurant. Feels like your going back in time to the old west. Had the all you can eat fish and chips. Very good quality fish perfectly cooked. Service was fantastic.

The bbq sauce is yummy. My husband had fried chicken and rib combo. He loved it. I had a salad. Not impressed. I think part of the greens were from a bag. The drinks are good. the staff is very friendly. We like the patio. Dog friendly a plus!

Well worth a visit, generous portions, with a touch of Home cooking style. Friendly staff very attentive, throughout service, like most patrons, too much to eat on the night, so a takeaway box is a must. There is a slight problem for wheelchair uses as there is a sharp ramp down into the seating area.

This is the worst food I've ever had, fried chicken greasy and tiny, my kids barbecue pork sandwich was like it was reheated from a week ago. Do not go!

The 'look & feel' of the establishment is like a trip back in time. You must add the desserts too. Toss up between the strawberry shortcake or the... More

Great nastalgic place to dine. Brought family, friends and kids along and the waitress was spot on with drinks and food. If you're visiting at night on Fridays or Saturdays expect to wait as with most restaurants on this strip. Side note: obey the speed limits! While I wasn't pulled over, plenty of folks were.

We love this place. We love the owner. Caring and pride carry this Creeker Institution into an everyday venue for quality food. The fried chicken and fish are ALWAYS hard to resist as are the epic burgers. We always always patronize this CC institution especially in the "lean" summer months when most of the "Creek" is treading water. Great Food,... More
