A bunch of my friends were in Deep Creek for a bachelorette weekend. We had dinner at the Santa Fe Grille and it was amazing. First we did shown up with a group of 14 without reservations and they could not have been nicer and more accommodating. The manager made our Bride-to-be feel so special and gave her some gifts...

We chose the Santa Fe because we were at the Visitor Center across the parking lot and it had outdoor seating. As a start, our cheese nachos were pretty good. My BF enjoyed his veggie quesadilla. My taco with shredded chicken looked like cat food. They mixed in something with the shredded chicken and it was visually unappealing as was... More

Had good service and food was great-we had the tacos and a salad. About average prices. It was in central location close to putt putt and some shops.

We visit here every summer during our vacation. The food has defiantly improved. The server was knowledgable of the food and the manager came over a few times to check on us. He explained there is a new chef and it was obvious. We went back a second time this week and the manager even remembered us. Very nice and... More

Santa Fe is under new management. We stopped going before because the food was mediocre at best and the prices were high. Now the food is awful and the prices are high and they ice the cake with incredibly slow service. We ordered a Quesadilla and Nachos for appetizers. The quesadilla was okay. The nachos were chip fragments dumped from... More

Horrible! So bad that the next morning we are still talking about how bad it was. Old hard rice. Flat beer that had to be sent back. Bland burritos. Tasteless ribs. Go elsewhere.

REopened on May 30. Service was average. RIbs were pretty good. Fundamental food, but nothing to knock your socks off.

Hostess was rather rude when I went in to place my order for dinner- to take back to the hotel. "You gotta go to the bar for that"! Well, alright! that's what I did. The bartender was very nice- complete opposite of the hostess. Restaurant was in the middle of a menu change so some items were not in stock.... More

The food was really tasty and there was plenty of it! The waiter was very friendly. The only down side was they had just gotten a new menu that day and none of the waitstaff knew what was on it. They handled it well and that made our visit all the more enjoyable.

Stopped by for a late dinner. The room is amazing first and foremost. Great ambiance. Everything clean and well put together. A nice big menu with plenty to chose from for all types of palettes. The food was the highlight. Totally fresh ingredients in everything from the salsa to the veggies. Full bar. Lots of specialty drinks. Will certainly return.
