Anniversary Dinner

Great meal and service. The smothered chicken is the best. Steaks are great also. The Creekside Cooler is my favorite drink

If we were to eat here on a regular basis it might do better than my rating. You could tell that it was a place that local people came to regularly. Our food was ok but nothing outstanding and they got my wife's order wrong. People were very nice and they wanted things to be right but I guess it... More

We come here reqularly when visiting favorite relatives in the area. Therefore, part of our reaction to this restaurant, is entwined with our memories here. The service has always been friendly and accommodating. The food is good to very good, never remember having a bad meal. The prices are reasonable. The facility is older, but clean and well maintained. It... More

I get it that this is a small town, but I found nothing charming about this place. The dining room looks like it hasn't been updated in 40 years. There was only one other occupied table, but we walked past several tables that had not yet been cleaned from previous diners. Next to our table was a Christmas tree covered... More

Hey, at least it's not another chain. Crawfordsville was the halfway point between our groups and the place looked sort of interesting. Cold and rainy day so had to sit inside. It looked like it would be nice in good weather on the deck with a river view. Our server was polite, helpful, and willing to let us sit forever... More

Got into Crawfordsville late and hungry, stopping overnight on our way to Springfield IL. We passed many chain restaurants and asked for a local restaurant at the motel desk. We were directed to the Creekside Lodge and found it to be very charming. Friendly service, Good food at very reasonable prices. I'd go back again, should be fun to sit... More

This was probably a one-off situation, but it was pretty bad - so I will report it. Had dinner there 10/17/15 - the service was awful. We got drinks pretty promptly - but our meals took forever (a good 45 minutes). When the meals arrived, the food was cold and the prime rib was well done (vs med rare request).... More
