Rustic setting on the banks of Sugar Creek. Food was ok, nothing special though. Our waiter was young and inexperienced so we had some problems and had to request some additional items several times before the order was filled. The setting and the lodge itself offset some of the issues. Overall I would say the food is ok for the... More

This sits right on the banks of Sugar Creek. Try a breaded tenderloin sandwich. As far as I know, it is unique to Indiana. I have lived in a lot of different states and no one has ever heard of a breaded tenderloin.

My sister and I took a trip to Crawfordsville, Indiana last October to bury our mother's ashes. After a fun but long exhausting day, and on the recommendation of a friend, we had dinner at Creekside Lodge. It was just what we needed. A great dinner, a glass of wine and lovely and helpful staff. Can't wait to go back... More

Not real mashed potatoes!!! Are you kidding me? This place is beautiful but the food & service were pathetic. Granted, I ordered the fish & chips. Probably should have ordered steak or something. But with such a nice building & menu, I thought it would all be good. Food came in a basket. Nasty coleslaw. First time I ever wished... More

I was staying at Turkey Run Inn, and I had tried Rockville restaurants already. I decided to go to Crawfordsville to see what was there. Outside of pizza, bars and fastfood, food options are few in this part of Indiana. The Creekside Lodge was a welcome sight. I ordered the blackened tilapia, mashed potatoes, and caesar salad. The salad had... More

My family has been her about 5 times, each time we say, "we're never coming back here", but friends invite us to go with them, so we feel obligated. Service is very very slow (kitchen), food is subpar at best. Not to mention, my son had to wait an additional 5 minutes for his food after everyone else had theirs.... More

The good, atmosphere, beer. Can't mess that up. The bad, food, service. Tenderloin was a giant piece of fat pounded out to paper thin, deep fried and over priced. I would stick to grabbing an appetizer and a beer and sitting outside on the deck and enjoy the creek scenery!

This place has one of the most picturesque views of any place around, it's a shame the food is so disappointing. We have stopped in for lunch and dinner, and have yet to have a good meal. The bar seems to have a good crowd, they just need to focus on food quality to make this place great.

This is close to the Holiday Inn and so very tempting. A couple of years ago we had a terrible experience with poor service and poor food quality...........But I went back this week and the service was excellent. I had a steak and it was cooked perfectly and the service was wonderful. Great job Guys
