Didn't start off well. We were told it would be a 10 minute wait for a table. We waited close to 40 minutes. Bartender and Hostess got into an argument about transferring a bar tab to the restaurant waitress right in front of the customers waiting for a table (very unprofessional). However, eventually we were lucky to get a seat... More

We ate at Creekside in November 2016. We tried it based on the rating from trip advisor and were pleasantly surprised on how good it was. The service was good and the food was also very good. I had the crab cake which had large pieces of crab and I also had beet salad. Both were delicious. I would recommend... More

We ate there for break. Good food, a little dark. Played oldies Eat on the patio when you can because the views of the rocks are great. Mario was our server. He was great, steered us to the cobbler, which we got to go...OMG delicious.

We were seated outside, so had a good view (over the tree tops which had been cut back). Ample portions, but no take home box needed. We were hungry.

My partner-in-dine and I got to the restaurant a little after 4pm on Thanksgiving weekend. We were looking forward to their Happy Hour which runs from 3pm to 6pm. But we were told that the only way we could do Happy Hour was if we sat at the bar. But since we decided to sit at a table, we couldn't.... More

Recommended by our hotel but when we arrived, we had to shout out "hello?" to find anyone to seat us. That should have been our first clue. Plain breakfast with so-so service. Nothing special when there are so many other good options in town.

This place truly has a great morning break for us in the bar. Great Bloody Mary, actually the 2 of us shared 3, and with the celery, olive, tomato and pickled okra it really was basically a light meal. They use their own infused liquors and these are a not miss.

Stopped for a hearty breakfast before hiking and had a great meal. The atmosphere is really nice - and outside seating. I had the Sedona scramble and it was so fresh. The bread / toast was excellent and the potatoes were very crispy and the rosemary flavor was perfect. Worth the price. Others in our group had the bacon and... More

A friend and I drove to Sedona from Phoenix for the day a couple of weeks ago and decided to have lunch here. We opted to be seated outside and enjoy the wonderful view. The service was great but I just thought that most of the food on the menu were overpriced. I ordered the Bacon Cheddar Burger with Avocado... More
