Good setting

Sat on the outdoor patio with no annoyances from insects even though it is as the name indicates, next to a creek. Food was good as was the service.

We received good service from the waitress, however some of our order was not delivered, and steaks we're not cooked as requested and had to be sent back. The food is extremely expensive and is low grade. I won't be eating their again anytime soon.

on the river, you can eat by windows or even outside. menu with lots of variety, sandwiches, salads, spaghetti, soups, even pizza. Soups are homemade and usually very good, rest of the food is sometimes average.

Enjoyed setting out with a view of the creek. Staff was slow. The food was not outstanding. I ordered a tenderloin sandwich and felt I got my moneys worth on the meal, but not much on taste. The restaurant itself is unique, the setting beautiful. They do need to hire someone to clean the outside sitting area and invest in... More

I live close to this place. Been here several times and underwhelmed each time. My review is based on this not a one-time bad experience which may or may not be representative. Here is why I won't be back: 1.) The food is mediocre at best. I have tried many things on the menu and have not been impressed my... More

Location was nice... right next to the river/creek. Place was clean. Food was average. Had a N.Y. Strip which was overcooked. Had a slight tang to it which tells me it was old or not stored properly. No garnish to any of our plates. Very plain. Tilapia had a slight chemical taste to it... almost chlorine like. All of the... More

Very casual dining on sugar creek. We sat on the deck and had a great waitress. Ribeye and pork chops were amazing.

This is a great place for a bike ride. Great outdoor patios for enjoying the view of the creek while dining or just having a drink with friends.
