“Golden oldies”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We were disappointed in the quality of the food. My breakfast was a pancake made from a mix. For supper I got the recommended burger, which turned out to be greasy and disappointing. the poached salmon which we were told was the better choice, should have been left frozen. I would hate to taste the other salmon choice. the vegetables came out of a can. The music piped in was popular sometime in the 40s. the smell coming from the renovations did not encourage any appetite.

“OMG”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

OMG......forget this restaurant. It is located off the lobby of Howard Johnson. When we entered the main doors, there was this terrible odor plus a sign saying that the hotel was undergoing some renovation. We were brave soles and still ventured in the dining room. We were one of five tables in the restaurant. We wanted to tell two couples who came in after us to leave! Not only did the water taste bad (consider getting bottled water), but the pork chops had a funny taste and the hamburger was very skinny and did not taste like ground beef. My husband thought there would be a creek going by the restaurant because "Creekside" was in their name. This is the first ever review I have made and I regret that it has to be a poor one.

“The best pork chops on the Transcanada”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Bob is a people pleaser and a consumate professional chef with international experience and expertise. He won't let you leave hungry. His portions are'nt bigger than the flavor--and that's huge! And the service is great. Located within the Howard Johnson it's so convenient. You don't find yourself stuffed uncomfortably in one of those tacky and thoughtless office/breakfast lounges--No, you get a voucher for a hot meal for breakfast and the best noon and evening cuisine by a man who's had restaraunts on three continents only to land up in Swift Current, "where life makes sense".
