“good place to eat in Arroyo Grande”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

I really enjoyed the atmosphere of this place. The patio outside is a treat when the weather is good. The food is very good but I felt their prices were a bit high. A better bet is to go for lunch or happy hour unless you have a special occasion to celebrate and you don't mind spending more dough than usual. It can be hard to have a intimate dinner as it can get pretty loud at times but that wouldn't stop me from returning.

“Great Food and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the Rooster Creek Tavern on a recent trip to the area. Lively atmosphere, great food, and good beer on tap. I highly recommend the Gorgonzola, Pear and Arugula pizza with the Scalpin IPA. The Chicken Wrap with Red Peppers is also delicious according to my better half. Prices are very fair.

“Great Spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Tried the Rooster Creek for the first time last night. Loved everything about it -- ambiance, menu -- service was impeccable. Wide range of menu options and full bar. Glad to know that the Village has such a good place for lunch, dinner or late night. Husband said it was the best burger he ever had.

“Close to home!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

At last Arroyo Grande has another restaurant to visit in the evening. There must have been pent up demand for a restaurant like this because as soon as it opened it has been booming. It has been a benefit to the entire Arroyo Grande Village scene and has a wonderful selection of food items, beers and beer samplers. It is actually set up as a family oriented sports bar restaurant with numerous televisions to watch. However, I see most people talking and enjoying their company. On a warm day and evening it is wonderful to sit on the outside patio for drinks and a meal. You need reservations most evenings. Great salads, pizzas, huge hamburger, sandwiches and nightly specials.
