Average food, excellent service and reasonable pricing. Brunch was OK!. Patio seating available if no private event is scheduled. Few tall tables are available outside with a fire pit on. For big eaters...My "huevos Rancheros" or Burgers were good, large and impossible to finish.

We picked this as it was close to or hotel. Based on TA, a picture looked like it had a scenic view. The ambiance was fine, but as someone on vacation, i would have rather gone somewhere in downtown Laguna. The food was good, we shared stuffed shrimp and the ribs (which was a huge serving). While the food was... More

We just finished an amazing dinner at the Sslt Creek Zgrill. Caitlin was our waitress and did a fantastic job of pampering us and making us feel right at home. First of all, I am w vegetarian which can be challenging to find restaurants that can accommodate this diet. This restaurant did just that. I had the kale salad that... More

The only thing on the menu worth having is the barbecued ribs. Period. Service was okay. It's a bit noisy.

We stopped in for lunch and we were not disappointed. We were met by the smell of a mesquite wood grill, which was very inviting. Friendly service, warm decor and atmosphere. Outside patio available for seating. My Fish Tacos were delicious. They used three types of fish, Salmon, Mahi Mahi and Halibut all in the same tacos. Very unusual. My... More

Decided to go here as the better restaurants were booked. Average place whose staff made lots of mistakes throughout the meal. Mistake #1...we told Meghan 3 times that we do not drink, but when she brought our drinks...they were filled with alcohol. Mistake #2...she told has of the specials...failed to tell us about the prime rib...which I would have ordered.... More

Previous reviewers have marveled at the tremendous experience to be had at Salt Creek Grille, so we took their advice and went...and had an awesome experience! From the moment we walked in the restaurant and were greeted with cheer and friendliness by to hostess to the ambiance of sitting on the patio (a choice given us by the hostess) to... More

Great dinner. Reasonably priced. bbq and steaks on the grill. They had an outside patio for dinner but we ate inside. Outside would have been nice but it was a little to chilly

We used Salt Creek for my daughters weeding and most importantly the reception. After a zillion back and forth with their event staff, and with their guidance, they put on a terrific "show" that memorable to all who attended. Excellent food (we did appetizer selections by butler service along with some standing appetizer trays at tables). All were excellent. Tops... More
