We drove by to confirm that the Creekside was indeed closed and there's a For Sale sign on it. Was never very good so the closure is good news. Let's hope the next owner are an improvement.

We stopped here for lunch because it was the first place we saw with outdoor seating that was open. The service was so slow that we seriously considered leaving $5 on the table for our drinks and walking out. They were out of the first few menu items we ordered. Also, the server spent a little while angrily yelling at... More

My husband and I tried this place for dinner last season, and we thought it was average. We decided to try it again this season for breakfast. Boy what a mistake! The server looked half asleep. She brought out lukewarm coffee without the half and half or a spoon. My husband had to go in search of his own spoon... More

Went here to have lunch after listening to some of the music at Ocrafest. They just happened to have Pierogi's which is one of my favorites and not found in many restaurants. It was a great surprise to find them on the menu. Service and food was good.

The service was poor. Flies were everywhere. I saw the C rating AFTER we had ordered and we should have gotten up and walked out. The silverware wasnt clean. The omelet I ordered was paper thin and way overdone. It literally moved in the breeze from the ceiling fan like a sheet of paper. We paid our bill and left... More

The service was horrible, and the food wasn't good at all. The only thing decent about it was the guy singing in the corner. Oh, and it had a C rating. I wish I had seen that before we ordered.

We had incredibly slow service for average food. We noticed that all restaurants must post their 'inspection report card'. This place had the lowest score that we saw on the island. Locals told us to avoid it.

We had been at the beach all day and were starving. We walked up to a quite empty restuarant. It took a few minutes for someone to greet us and we were seated. First thing I noticed was the kitchen rating it was a 70 something which is a C-. A little wary we were starving and thought we would... More

At first glance, liked the big screened in, casual atmosphere. Nobody seated us, just left us standing around for several minutes and then told us to seat ourselves. Bathroom wasn't great. Server Sharon was not friendly, attentive, or accurate. Got order wrong, etc. Never brought napkins or refilled drinks. When I finally went to find her, she got the refills... More
