Friendly Service, Great Food, Rustic and Comfortable Surroundings

We stopped here for an early dinner after driving all day while on vacation. I felt comfortable at once in the rustic surroundings. I love the old building and the huge architecturally pleasing windows that let lots of soft light into the dining room. The service was very friendly even though we... read more

Excellent drinks (Chris really knows how to make a Vesper Martini). Blackened burger was excellent as well as the salmon special.

I was never a big fan of Infinity food, and I was finally able to get in to this place. I was glad I did. Very good food and drink. It is what I had hoped Infinity would be. And cheaper!

We chose to celebrate our anniversary here - for a variety of reasons. After an arduous week it was comfortable and convenient. But in our hearts we knew...we would get great food, great service, lots of smiles and a welcome! Thank you Heidi for the service, the smiles, and the welcome; thank you Mike for the fantastic meal

What else do you need for a great place to eat? A great hostess? - Check! A great watering hole (= bar) - Check! And on Tuesdays (= Trivia Night) you can check all those answers that you missed!

The bar was a 10 out of 10. Great drinks and bartender. The food was reasonably priced, diverse, and ample servings. Service was excellent. Spent the night at a local B & B, in route to Boston. If you are there, don't pass it up.

Wood Creek is good at what it aims to be: a cross between a bistro and a pub. Good burgers and pub fare along with interesting entrée options -- halibut with mango salsa, pork loin with mushroom risotto, etc. I wouldn't call it outrageously excellent...but you can always get a solid meal worth the price. Myself, I almost always opt... More
