“Great food in great mountain setting”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

On a lovely summer day in June, this restaurant was the perfect place to celebrate a birthday on the outdoor patio. From the patio, you could watch the sailboats on the lake and the paddle boarders, all while enjoying some made-from-scratch delights. Our waitress was very friendly, informing us that this was a family-owned establishment with a chef-owner making all of their breads, cheeses, sausages and other dishes. I had the tasty grilled chicken sandwich with thick slices of well-done bacon, cheese, greens, basil aioli and a chewy grilled bread. The side salad with balsamic dressing came with it, but I could have chosen fries as an alternative. We also had the vanilla bean creme brûlée that was accompanied by a dollop of whipped cream, some chocolate and strawberry sauce and some nut brittle that had a hint of cayenne pepper in it. It was wonderful. Our waitress even put a candle in it when she learned of the birthday. Our water glasses were constantly replenished and service was prompt. I plan to return.

Lovely views, great company, and delicious food. Was here on a business trip and was taken here for dinner. The lake and Pines are beautiful. The service was good, food was on time I ordered the Salmon and cooked to perfection for my taste.

Coffee delicious and hot...I would recommend this restaurant if you are a local or traveler.

“Girls gone (not) wild”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I hosted with Willow Creek a birthday dinner party for a girlfriend I love. 9 of us were tucked in the corner of this groovy, lovely restaurant and we just had a blast. The food and drinks were divine and we had an a-dorable waiter who was kind, attentive, patient and professional.
Truth be told, I have a business that sends guests to this restaurant when I want them to be impressed. It works.

“Great place to take clients for lunch”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Willow Creek is the best place in town to take clients for lunch. Easy to get to/good parking, nice view of Evergreen Lake, outdoor patio and oh, did I mention the food? The menu is ever changing so there are lots of great choices. Fantastic wine selection and attentive staff. You won't be disappointed.
