“Amazing beverage menu, lovely setting”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

The patio is fabulous overlooking Evergreen Lake, but make a reservation and be sure to request an umbrella if the day is sunny. We sat at the patio railing on our first visit and enjoyed looking out over the lake. We made a reservation for our second visit but it ended up being a little too warm so we moved inside, which is also very nice. Food menu is a little limited, but since every thing is made fresh to order they were very accommodating on adjusting to suit vegetarian needs. Amazing selection of wines and liquors...better than many "big city" locations. We were only in town for four days but went to Willow Creek twice!

“Creative food choices, lovely setting, exceptional service”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

This was our first visit to Willow Creek Restaurant, for Saturday brunch on a perfect Colorado summer day. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the view of Evergreen Lake across the street while enjoying creative and healthy food choices. Brunch prices are reasonable, considering the quality of the food, and service was outstanding (thanks, Lisa). We sat for over and hour and a half with my elderly parents and never felt rushed. If you plan to sit on the patio, bring a hat, as not all of the tables have umbrellas (though the restaurant does have straw hats on hand for loan). Parking was the only negative; the shopping center lot was completely full, as many people leave their vehicles there while spending hours at the park across the street (in spite of signs restricting the lot parking to shopping center patrons). I had to park several blocks away on the narrow street.

“Exceptional Service”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We hosted 30+ people at Willow Creek for my daughter's wedding. The service staff was spot on honoring our off-the-wall requests with aplomb and always with humor and a smile. The food was terrific--well prepared and with generous portions. As others have said, the setting is terrific overlooking Evergreen Lake and the ever-green foothills of the Rockies.

“Outstanding experience”

From the appetizer to the desert this was a delicious tour. Don't pass up the scallops. They are outstanding. The rabbit is very good.
