Great Valentine's dinner after 50 years of marriage and love. Did not get to sit out on the deck overlooking Oak Creek because of the temperature but still a romantic evening. Great attention and service from many of the staff. Petite steak for my wife and shrimp and grits for me were excellent, just the right amount and tasty. Margaritas... More

The food is excellent and it's a fav for Happy Hour. You can't go wrong with Creekside and the prices are in line with the places locals frequent.

I was brought here to try their infusions! The cocktails were amazing! Bloody Mary infusion was delicious, the prickly pear and jalapeño margaritas were perfect! Enjoyed the staff and very nice locals.

Sit on the patio that overlooks the Creek and have the Red Rock Views in addition. The food is really good. The service is excellent. We dine there every visit except the last one in the winter since the patio would not have been a great place when it's cold.

We would definitely return for dinner in... More
