First off, our server Giselle was one of the nicest servers we have ever had while dining out, period, so big kudos to her! We sat outside and enjoyed the ambiance there with the waterfall wall in the back that runs down between this restaurant...and the pizza place next door. As far as food went, we started with the pretzel bites, and while they seemed like they were the ones from the freezer aisle at the grocery store, they were alright. I had the short rib pasta dish and it was absolutely outstanding! Great recommendation from Giselle! My wife had a chicken teriyaki wrap with tots and enjoyed that as well, even though she was jealous of my dish! We will definitely come back!More

Stopped in for a snack and beverage. Excellent Filet Bites, with peppered brown gravy even better than the bearnaise sauce. Decided to stay for dinner. Wedge salad is the best I've had in the Valley so far. Lovely location. Solid service at the bar. Will...return, so many other items to try.More

My wife and I have been going to the Creek since the doors opened and have had diner, appetizers, and drinks there probably over one hundred occasions. The lack of attention to customers by current management is unacceptable. The quality of food is deteriorating, cold...and undercooked and their presentations and portions are inconsistent. The hosts are tentative in how they approach their job. The servers are excellent, especially a new one, Kaylynn. The drinks remain outstanding because the Bar does have a Manager, Shannon, but the Managers of the food are less than desirable. They never interact with customers and never stop by tables to see how your meal was. Last Saturday, my wife tried to call to the attention to Manager Shawn some issues we had with our meal, and his response was “what do you expect when everyone shows up at once.” Shawn was disrespectful and rude in tone to my wife; he did not listen and finally I told him that it was no use talking with him. He offered no apology whatsoever and he turned his back on us and left our table. We are lodging and official complaint against Shawn with upper Management. The Creek is not what it once was, and we will not be back anytime soon. So disappointing!More

The food is good, particularly the pizza. The current Manager is a bit of a hothead. We were seated at an empty table by the bar waiting to get seated by the hostess when the Manager came by and very rudely yelled at us to...get up as she was going to seat somebody at the table. We were immediately seated elsewhere and there was nobody else waiting, so she was incredibly rude for no reason. This would have never happened under the previous Manager, Austin. The place seems to be out of control...we ordered a bottle of wine and more than one person brought us a glass? WTF? Maybe they need to figure out how to get Austin back?More

Upon entering the sign said, Take a menu and sit where you want. It took a bit to be recognized but once someone stopped by to see if we were being helped, 2 waiters were very friendly and attentive. We ordered the blackened Mahi-mahi sandwiches...($15) It was very good and done well and for the extra $1.50 I substituted onion rings. The Best crispy onion rings I’ve had in a long time. Great food, great service. The outdoor patio was perfect. Will be back.More

This is a popular restaurant in the north valley with tasty salads and appetizers. One of their servers is outstanding. Legend is attentive to customer needs and is one of the best ever.

My first time there and I will not be back. I had lunch with a friend who has eaten there a few times before, and she even said she would not go back. We both eat out frequently and have our favorites, but enjoy trying...new restaurants to add to our list of regular places. The Creek will not be making that list. Below average food, at inflated prices. My friend was in the mood for a good hamburger, she ordered that and tater tots. The burger was so-so in flavor and simply thrown together, neither of her items were very hot when they arrived. I ordered from the "side dish" menu, getting sweet potato fries and asparagus, neither of them arrived hot. Both of these items were priced at $5 and at the price I would expect a reasonable portion. I received exactly 4 asparagus spears, and they were VERY OLD and woody, they had no flavor of asparagus and were extremely tough. It was honestly like trying to chew a grilled stick. The sweet potato fries had a good flavor, but the amount of them I was served was not worth $5 and they were not served hot. The restaurant was not busy, yet the waitress was not very attentive. When she did check back on us, the only thing she offered to makes things right was to have the kitchen put my asparagus back on the grill to see if it would make it more tender. I declined as it would not help old asparagus that should never been served in the first place. Poor customer satisfaction policy here, we will not go backMore

On one of the best days of the Phoenix year, with the weather lolling about in the high '70's, we found the perfect place to celebrate a bit of freedom from COVID and relax in the comfort of a fabulous dining experience at The Creek...Patio Grill. While the internal decor is pleasing, it's outdoors on the patio we wanted to be. All tables are socially distanced, and all appropriate safety precautions have been implemented. The bottom line is that the menu leaves you agog with a variety of savory dishes from which to choose. Fact is: You can't go wrong! We opted for an amazingly delicious brussel sprout salad ~ sprout shavings blended with a mix of crunch and an indescribable dressing with a bit of a kick. The assault on our taste buds continued with hard to hold but irresistible lettuce wraps filled filled bite sizes of sesame-flavored chicken breast and sautéed in garlic and mushroom, glazed with Mongolian BBQ, topped with crispy noodles and scallion. A serving of three pulled pork sliders on melt-in-your-mouth corn-dusted rolls rounded out the feast. All accompanied with wine! And, oh, dessert! When you come, you must have the French bread pudding ~ with crème anglaise and raspberry drizzle. The best! Now, there are other choices ~ pizza, sandwiches, and a list of entrees ~ all of which clearly insisted that we return to try them out. And we will. Final note. The service is splendid. Kudos to Lindsay for attending to detail and our needs, for her courtesy and professionalism.More

We came all the way up here on the recommendation of friends, and were very disappointed. I am not easily worried about all the pandemic concerns out there, but this place took that to a whole new level of not being concerned, and it even...got to me a bit. The menu at brunch included one non-breakfast item, which was odd. What I did get wasn't very good. It was all edible for sure, but not worth coming back for again.More

Decent sandwiches-chicken Parmesan and BBLT. The BBLT was toasted too much and the chicken Parmesan wasn't toasted enough. Good fries and better than average onion rings. Nice iced tea. Shout-out to the server who was efficient, polite, and accommodating. A good local eatery but not...a destination.More

We were searching for restaurants that have outdoor seating during covid 19 and this place came up. Not an extensive list for happy hour mixed drinks as there was one for $8. I got it and it was good. My husband ordered a beer that...was $4.50. We did the shared plates and one was lettuce wraps which my husband liked but were too spicy for me. The other plate was called Drunken Shrimp. Four toast points with a few shrimp in a sauce that you used your bread to soak up. Very tasty. It'll be nice to go inside in the future and try other items on their menu. The outdoor area is nice with shade cloths overhead. No misting system but luckily ths temps weren't too bad today in Phoenix (Cave Creek). Our waitress was very nice too.More

We love this place to sit outside and eat, drink and relax. They have a large patio space with tables and area to sit at bar. They have a good HH and Sunday brunch too. We had burger, fries, hummus/chips and drinks. All were very...good. The menu is pretty large, so many items to choose. When the weathers nice sit outside and do yourself a favor relax, eat and drink.More

Joined friends for our first visit during Happy Hour. Excellent discounted appetizers followed by a small pizza. Margarita was adequate. Everyone enjoyed their choices. Our waitress was excellent. We were fortunate to sit in a booth in a quieter area. We would return!

Four of my friends and I went to The Creek Patio Grill for brunch this Saturday morning. The menu is extensive and there is something for everyone's taste. They menu listed $5 Bloody Marys and Mimosas. Perfect. We all had Bloody Marys which were delicious....Imagine our surprise when the bill came and we were charged $6. I asked the server about this and he said "oh, we raised the price and just have not yet got the menu changed". Wrong answer! Bait and switch tactic. Honor the menu prices or get the darn menu changed. Not a good business practice. Instead, our server got shorted $1 from each of us. Just not right. You can put stickers on the menu if you cannot afford to reprint or disclose the price increase on the front end!More
