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.

This is still one of my favorite restaurants. All the dishes are gourmet. I love the kale salad with figs. They have a massive wine list. The service is out of this world. Great for formal events or brunch on the sidewalk.

My visit to Lark and Creek was very nice. I sat outside with my pet and enjoyed my meal after my server brought my pooch a bowl of cold water with ice cubes. Although I was not crazy about the Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf and Garlic Mashed Potatoes because they taste too homemade and not spectacular, I was very happy with... More

Had an early dinner at Lark Creek about a week ago and was disappointed in my entree. I ordered the Paella which I have had all over the world and I am sorry my friend paid for this. It was overly salted, overcooked and dry. My friends seemed to enjoy their meal but I don't think they are as picky... More

We dined for Mother's Day Brunch. It was a terrible choice. I've reviewed Lark Creek a few years ago and found it nearly excellent. The noise level this time (with full house) was nearly unbearable. I've operated farm machinery that was quieter. Food was good but prices are creeping. We paid $4.75 for an Arnold Palmer then paid again for... More

We have previously found the Lark Creek to be high quality, but for brunch the eggs were dried out and potatoes were dull and overcooked. The restaurant was busy but that's not a good reason for bad food.

Lark Creek is great for special dinners! Was perfect for Graduation celebration. There were 16 of us for a Graduation dinner and we were all well taken care of. Menu has something for everyone. I would definitely go back again.
