“Great patio, smokey, bad service.”
Review of Paint Creek Tavern

Paint Creek Tavern
Ranked #79 of 92 Restaurants in Rochester
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 8, 2007

This restaurant is located in the quaint downtown of Rochester Michigan. The patio in back of the restaurant overlooks the Paint Creek and adjoining walkway.......very nice to sit outside and enjoy the summer.
The restaurant does not have a non-smoking area, so non-smokers have to sit outside (where smoking is also permitted). The other problem is that you have to walk through the dense smoke in the restaurant to get to the patio.
The menu is limited.....so we had sandwiches (burger and fish sandwich) which were average (they never heard of Grey Poupon mustard) . We also ordered dinner salads which were made incorrectly (missing croutons, wrong dressings, wrong size, etc.).
The service really needed improvement. After 15 minutes, I had to go into the bar to check on our wine order. We finally asked another waitress to help us out so we could eat.
It looked like the floor of the patio had not been cleaned or swept in at least a couple days.
