“Wow”
Reviewed March 3, 2014 via mobile

I had not been there in a few years, the food was good burgers & chicken tenders (real, not frozen) could use more servers but other than that very pleasant visit.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Awesome food! Really just a "hole-in-the-wall" kind of place but the people were real nice and the food was "off the hook!" More money in that parking lot in "Big-Boy-Toys" then boats/ships on Lake Lanier! (I wish all the people on Lake Norman who think they have a boat could see that LAKE and those BOATS!

“A shack worth checking out!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

A perfect Saturday night on the lake, had to include a stop at the Big Creek Tavern! We squezed into their dock of a dozen boats, really only holds maybe 7. Then we took the treak up the hill to outdoor bar for some drinks while a guy sung a variety of songs - quite intertaining. We then got seated inside the shack at a table for dinner, we started with bacon wrapped shrimp - which were tasty, then some hot wings that hit the spot. The wedge salad was very good but the Cajun Sandwich was Excellent - spicy sausage, shrimp, ham chunks, swiss cheese and a creole mustard sauce to topped it off. Great spot - probably best to visit at night and when you're Not the DD!

“diamond in the rough! delicious salad and sandwich!”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Big Creek is a hole in the wall and not a fancy spot. But, wow...the grilled chicken salad and the fried grouper sandwich were fantastic! The onion rings and special sauce were yummy as well. I'm not sure what breading they use on the fish, but it was crunchy and tasty. The salad was huge and full of freshly grilled chicken breast. They are known for their burgers and steaks. We will most certainly be back and will have beef on our next trip. Both inside and outside dining. Very casual, come as you are place. They are located on Lake Lanier and have a dock as well. You can NOT see the lake from the restaurant, but it is worth giving up the view.

“The picture shown is most certainly not Big Creek Tavern”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

I've enjoyed the food and live entertainment at Big Creek over the years. The food has the usual bar fare but they also have some very delightful and surprisingly delicious things to try. The prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere is completely dive. Love it!
