We were staying down the road and decided to give this place a try. The front desk at the hotel made it seem like we'd see the restaurant from the road, one or two exits down so I didn't bother putting the address or name into Waze. It was a dark drizzly night and I was paying too much attention... More

Took a shot at a place I had never been before and wanted to treat a family member in area for business. Chose Salt Creek Grille by a couple of reviews and they were right. Food is very good nice textures and flavors. The flatbread with bacon jam was awesome would go back just for that. Two of our party... More

Have been to Salt Creek Grille a few times. Very nice ambiance in Princeton but food really disappoints. And I've always found this to be the case, it's just the place is so warm and inviting. So we gave it another try. This time food was prepared way in advance. Salad was almost frozen, tomatoes were like ice and when... More

Went to this restaurant for a catered affair and was vey pleased with the service and meal. The staff could not have nicer as they helped to set up the private room for our event. They even went out of their way to help us with extra tables, etc. The food was very good. The salad was lovely, the salmon... More

Always get reasonably tasty food here and decent music at times. It does get a little loud in the bat with a band playing

Mashed potatoes were NOT piping hot. Sent them back. Specifically said to bring salad dressing ON THE SIDE. Salad came with dressing already IN it. Waiter did not think to give me a wet nap/wet napkin AS my fingers were sticky from all those delicious ribs. Would have preferred walnuts NOT caramelized but there was NO option. Arrived 5:40pm for... More

Fortunately we made a reservation for dinner on a Saturday night, as it was rather crowded when we arrived. We waited no more than 3 minutes before being led to our table. Our friendly waitress greeted us and gave us time to check out the menu. We were a party of 4 and ordered the calamari and a flat bread... More

Great atmosphere, very lodgy. Wait staff was very friendly and the wine list was a pleasant surprise. Risotto beingets were great. Lobster bisque just ok. Had the bbq chicken salad which was very good. Ordered the chocolate souffle for dessert. The bar area looked really crowded so must host the after work crowd from local businesses.

Thank Stacey G
