We usually go here during the summer months and sit outside. You can get here by boat as well. The food here is good, I've never had bad food or service. They have live bands and it gets kinda crazy sometimes. Beer is always ice cold and good mixed drinks. I've seen kids and families here, but know in advance... More

Great food but everyone wants to sit on the patio due to smoking inside. It's a bit rough in decor but very laid back for casual dining, emphasis on casual.

Doing a little sightseeing and Google a lake side restaurant and found the Big Creek Tavern. As we drove by it was obvious that this was going to be a local bar and to be honest looked a little rough. We decided to be adventuresome and went in and am I glad we did. It was Labor Day around lunch... More

Hats off to the Chef! Had a perfectly cooked rib eye, the hashed brown casserole preceded by a slab of baby back ribs shared as an app with friends. Good beer selection to wash it all down. Very casual place with servers who don't rush you through your meal. The smoking section permeating into the dining area needs to go... More

We rode here with another couple. We wanted to sit outside because its real dark on the inside. We placed our drink order and it came out fast. We decided to hold off on our food order for a few minutes. I think that was a mistake as they got busier. We decide to order and could not find our... More

I had not been there in a few years, the food was good burgers & chicken tenders (real, not frozen) could use more servers but other than that very pleasant visit.

Awesome food! Really just a "hole-in-the-wall" kind of place but the people were real nice and the food was "off the hook!" More money in that parking lot in "Big-Boy-Toys" then boats/ships on Lake Lanier! (I wish all the people on Lake Norman who think they have a boat could see that LAKE and those BOATS!

A perfect Saturday night on the lake, had to include a stop at the Big Creek Tavern! We squezed into their dock of a dozen boats, really only holds maybe 7. Then we took the treak up the hill to outdoor bar for some drinks while a guy sung a variety of songs - quite intertaining. We then got seated... More

Big Creek is a hole in the wall and not a fancy spot. But, wow...the grilled chicken salad and the fried grouper sandwich were fantastic! The onion rings and special sauce were yummy as well. I'm not sure what breading they use on the fish, but it was crunchy and tasty. The salad was huge and full of freshly grilled... More
