I stopped to eat here because of other people's reviews and was not disappointed! I had the Chicken Marsala which was wonderful! Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. A little pricey but I thought it was worth it. Very nice, cozy atmosphere.

My wife & I tried Fire Creek for Valentine's Day for the first time. We both enjoyed the options on their menu, and enjoyed our meals (both had steaks). I kept commenting on how I liked their atmosphere. What sets it apart for many of the more trendy nice restaurants is you feel like you have more privacy. it's quite... More

The décor is classy without being too fancy. The service was excellent and the food was exceptional. We started with the fried mozzarella and we expected cheese sticks. Instead the appetizer was a single piece of mozzarella (large) that was fried and topped with marinara sauce. It was better than any fried mozzarella I have ever had. Our salads were... More

We love the relaxing, cozy romantic feel of the atmosphere. Love all the fire places. Wonderful wines and tasty meals. Is not gourmet but freshly made and delicious. With wine, steak and seafood we get a pretty big bill but have been here 3 times and becoming a favorite.

Fire Creek is an excellent place to lunch or go to in the evening. I have never had a bad meal there and just the other day had a blackened salmon sandwich for lunch that was prepared nicely and of good taste. My other meals there have been as good, and the wait staff is helpful and courteous.

Whenever you want to have a quiet evening after a busy, rough and hectic day, there are not too many places here in Greater Des Moines where you could really unwind. My suggestion would be Fire Creek. We had a very busy week - both in the family, at the workplace and the last and not the least the weather... More

We stopped in Wednesday night to check out the Fire Creek. The décor inside is cozy with a classy lodge feel. A nice place for a romantic dinner. Can't wait it enjoy the fireplaces when the temps cool down. We sat on the patio and had great service. Their apps are $6 during Happy Hour and consist of wonderful upscale... More
