We ate at Fire Creek after a movie in Jordan Creek. The restaurant was nice and the menu had a good variety of options. I had the lasagna with a salad and a cold Blue Moon. My date had the Caprese steak. Both were good and the service was excellent. We'll be back.

Fire creek is a great neighborhood haunt. Enjoyed by the business community and locals alike. Last night we met our friends for a relaxing evening in a great environment. Firecreek offers relaxing casual tables in the bar or slightly more formal but still relaxing dining in the dining room. I appreciated the wine menu with some non traditional choices for... More

I visited Fire Creek with business colleagues for a short business meeting then dinner. I arrived early and waited at the bar. The atmosphere was friendly and the bar tender waited on me right away. We were seated on the patio, which is really nice. We enjoyed the evening weather and ordered some wine and a cheese and fruit tray... More

The Fire Creek is predictably good at almost all levels of their menu. A number of their appetizers are quite filling so could be easily considered a meal if you are not sharing. My preference is the spinach and artichoke dip combination, but the shrimp, calamari and crab cakes are all great. As to the entrees, the luncheon salads are... More

Very good quality food and the ambience--particularly the booths in the bar area--can't be beat for a quiet realaxing meal. Perfect for special occassions with your loved one. Dinner menu is somewhat expensive (typical for an upscale American restaurant). Highly recommend the more moderately priced lunch menu.

When a meal for 2 tops $70 I expect a bit more in food quality and service. There is not a lot of difference between here and Legends across the street in my opinion for paying twice as much.

I love Italian fare, my husband craves American fare. We were able to find a happy medium here. The shrimp and scallop pasta was delicious, and he enjoyed his meal, as well. Make reservations ahead of time, they fill up quickly, especially on the weekends. A bit pricey for what you get, but still a nice choice for a Friday... More

Two or three years ago we ate at Fire Creek and found the atmosphere good and the service okay, but the menu selections and food lacking. After a couple of visits we decided there were too many other good places to eat and stopped going there. Around Christmas we returned with another couple and found things had changed, with a...
