The most uptight, arrogant promoter ever worked with. The people that run it are pretty close to the same mentality. They need to losen the leash, like a lot! Attendees are very nice and do support vendors. We will take our business elsewhere and be...much more appreciated! FYI. Figured out how to keep coffee for your vendors, it’s coffee for goodness sake. Concentrate on that instead of the nit picking on every little thing! We only speak from experience at this show! Litterally could not wait to get out of there and put it behind us.More

This is always a favorite. It's a step back in time with current food favorites. Always good choices from appetizers to entrees to desserts. Don't forget the tea !

What a delightful country retreat with a winsome interior. We had 11:30 a.m. reservations and mistakenly ordered after the crowd of patrons arrived so it did take some time for our food. However, lunch was excellent. I had the oven-roasted turkey sandwich with cranberry spread...and ½ signature salad. The fresh ingredients made my every delectable bite memorable including the mmmmm’s of my tablemates. The noise level of all the ladies lunching inside is high. If there are only two of you, consider sitting outside on the porch. Then there is the gift shop with great photo opportunities on the porch, or behind the frame floating between the trees or by the “rusty gold” gazebo. Lots of gifts, pottery, their cookbook and even handmade costume jewelry. I found a perfect-with-jeans light gold leather bracelet with crystals . We were lucky enough to see them decorating for a wedding bound to be romantic and fun with an outdoor ceremony under a flowered arbor and all the chandeliers and stylish country touches in the barn that make dreams. Absolutely worth the drive, and definitely make reservations.More

Emerson Creek did a fantastic job hosting a wedding I recently attended. The couple was married out by the pond. Then we transitioned to the patio for appetizers and cocktails. Next we were served dinner which was delicious. Then there was music and dancing. The...staff at Emerson Creek is fabulous with great attention to detail. Thank you for a lovely evening!More

I traveled here with a group for a special event – Backroads Vintage Market Day (held once a month on Wednesdays), featuring “vintage, salvaged, repurposed and handmade goods.” When they say “backroads,” they ain’t kidding. This onetime farm is located in a remote area accessed...only by a stretch of gravel road that’s not really wide enough for bi-directional traffic. Once the road dust settles, the rustic farm buildings and bucolic views of cornfields and a pond are kinda purdy. I generally enjoy craft and antique fairs but I did not love this one. In a nutshell, Market Days is for the gals. Amid booth after booth of women’s fashion, fake flowers, and cutesy curios, I felt like the figurative lonely onion in a petunia patch. I was bored out of my gourd. Having mucho extra time to kill, we decided to have lunch in the Tearoom. The 30-minute wait was no problem because they gave us an electronic pager. Our server was pleasant, but on this very busy day, food prep trudged along at glacial speed and it took 45 minutes for our meal to arrive. The ‘Emerson Creek Wrap’ was very good but rather dainty. The accompanying sides –7 kettle chips (yes, I counted) plus 3 thin slivers of melon – amounted to garnish. This meal cost $15.99 plus tax and tip. Hey, would you mind putting just one more kettle chip on my plate to make it an even 8?More

I had lunch here today since I had a long day to spend by myself while in Illinois visiting my sister. Lunch was delicious, I had the corn chowder with ham and roast turkey with cran/raspberry sauce on a croissant. For my beverage I chose...the blueberry merlot herbal tea. After lunch I browsed the pottery shop/gift shop. The tea room is set on a farm & also has buildings which are available for weddings & looked like it would be a truly beautiful setting. If ever in the area this place is a must try.More

First will say that I've previouly attended a wedding here and it was lovely, a beautiful setting. Sadly, my experience today was appalling and thought it worth mentioning. Please note, most of the reviews I post are positive, and I rarely take time, energy for...negative reviews. I arrived a few minuted early with plans to meet my sister, and waited briefly with others on the narrow road that leads to the property and as we were directed back to the parking area, I pulled into the designated spot next to the SUB that had been ahead of me. There was a person gesturing to come ahead as is often done to support the driver. I noted a railroad tie at the front of the space and with intention to leave a bit of room, as the front of my car is lower, the man, who I later discovered was the owner, became upset, gestured more intensely for me to move up, and when I put my car in park, he hit the hood of my car twice with his hand. I got out of my car and explained that I didnt want to pull too close because the front of my car is lower, and I confronted the fact that he had just hit my car. He walked away and expressed loudly , "I just tapped it". I expressed to him that it was "unnecessary". Needless to say I was upset and walked into the closest house in the hopes to speak with a manager about what I'd just experienced. A woman who said she was one of the event organizers listened and agreed to share with a manager as a training issue, not expecting that the man who'd had such an extreme reaction would be the owner. Needless to say, neither my sister or I purchased anything at the event, and we'll likely not return. I understand that he was trying to make the most effecient use of his parking lot, however, my compact car was nearly three feet further into the space than the Suv next to me, and feel that I made an appropriate judgement, that in no way impacted his parking set up negatively. Lastly, I felt shocked that a business owner would think its 1. okay to react in this way, and 2. in his best interest to not accept responsibility, rather minimize his behavior. I hope that he reads this and talks to someone about how he is feeling, and how he might respond differently, more flexibly, maybe say, "okay she doesn't want to pull up too far, and she's got a small car, so that's okay, she's good" as I believe it would be of benefit to his business, and to the the customers that appeared to be having such a nice time shopping and spending time together at such a pretty place.More

My (now) wife and I had our wedding reception at Emerson Creek this July and it was stunning. We wanted a non-traditional and relaxed atmosphere that matched our personalities and was truly "us." Emerson creek made that happen by working with us on a consistent...basis, never losing their patience with us, and one of their terrific stylists made what we described come to life. Can't recommend Emerson Creek enough and if you're going choosing Emerson, say hi to Kirsten for us and DEFINITELY choose Lara to be your stylist! Our wedding would not have gone off without her ideas and hard work.More
