Some great permanent items on the menu but a lot of changing seasonal items as well. Fried chicken salad is one of my favorites.

We needed to make a last minute reservation on Saturaday night. So despite trepidation, we decided to try the Lark Creek Inn again. This... More

Fresh menu. Excellent food and service. Nice atmosphere as well. We are not from walnut creek so when my family wanted to meet at a half way point I found this Restaurant on Trip Advisors and it was an excellent choice. This is now our families regular spot!

Monday night service was glacially slow, it took 30 minutes just to put in our drink order, after we had asked for the waitress several times. The manager finally had to come out an help since the waitress seemed to be fairly uninterested in getting us food or drinks. Once the food arrived, the meal was pleasant - the menu... More

We arrived and were immediately greeted by the hostess. Our reservation was in order. We got a great table. Casual atmosphere, which we appreciated. Half price on bottles of... More

This is a fabulous restaurant. I have some friends who visit every year and they have a wide variety of food preferences. One is on the Atkins diet, the other only likes homey type food and a third devours salads like a bunny. They are all thrilled when I bring them to Lark Creek. Everything from the steak to the...

We visited this restaurant while on a business trip and would return if we were staying longer. The service is prompt and courteous. The wait staff made sure we knew about the specials for the evening. Everything we had was a "step up" from typical.

Thank hugsforall3
