My wife and I had a very nice dinner date on a busy Friday night. Despite the crowd, we were warmly greeted at the door and were seated after only a short wait.

Although we had never been to Fire Creek, (and we had heard mixed reviews about it) we were happy to discover that the food is SO good. My husband was raving for the rest of the evening about how flavorful and well grilled his steak was, and my ribs were perfectly saucy and tender. As usual with steakhouses, most meals... More

Food was just okay, and ambiance reminded me a little of a rehabbed chain restaurant. Brown sugar scallops and prime rib were our dinner selections; food doesn't hold a candle to some other upscale restaurants in town - Baru 66, Trostel's Dish, Flemings, 801 Chophouse all boast better food for the money.

I was visiting from out of town, so I stopped in with a couple family members. The atmosphere was really nice; it was a great place to unwind and visit. The food was standard fare and was good, but not anything special. It really did not stand out to me as a place that I would be eager to return... More

This was a really good restaurant. Nice wine/beer list. Our party of 4 all enjoyed our meals. My only complaint was that the original menu didn't have any salads on it. They had to give us the small plate menu. Thought that was odd. We actually ordered everything from that menu.

My husband and I had dinner at Fire Creek last week. We had been given a gift certificate and had never been there. It was very busy when we arrived even though it was quite early in the evening. We were greeted promptly and my husband and I differed on our opinion of our waitress. I thought she was great,... More

Found on Trip Advisor. The decor is lovely and the open kitchen entices you with amazingly delicious smells. The drinks were excellent , requests for extra olives and well chilled were met beyond expectation. A steak salad arrived prepared as requested and was the Delmonico steak sandwich. The meat was delicious. Dollar value was very good. The high light of... More

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
