“Food was great and server was AMAZING”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

This place was recommended by the front desk staff at The Holiday Inn Express across the river. When we arrived the hostess was less than friendly, but I'm glad we looked past this because the rest of the evening was great! We were seated and immediately greeted by a friendly buss person who brought water. I asked her what her favorite dish was, and she quickly gave us several suggestions. Soon after, our server arrived and she was great. Obviously enjoyed her job and was confident in her ability to do the job. Everything from the appetizer to the dessert was great. I had chicken fried chicken, 2 had filet mignon that they raved about, and one child had pasta. None of us were disappointed. Food is food and can be done well or done badly.. we were lucky the food was great. The service was amazing and that alone will bring me back if I'm ever back in North Platte.

“Good food, friendly service”
Reviewed August 30, 2014

The barbeque was great, and the service was very good as well. I highly recommend it. The restaurant is conveniently located right off I-80.

“Welcoming and good food”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

It was open late when we needed a meal after a long drive, and the staff were friendly and efficient, the food plentiful (too much in fact) and tasty.

“very good”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

we weren't impressed with our waitress because she seemed to be in a big hurry. then the salads arrived. those were not very good...one small cherry tomato and old lettuce. but our dinner came out and we were all pleasantly surprised at how good it was! the chopped steak was grilled perfectly and tasted great. the baked potato was fresh and the perfect size. french fries were very good as was the hamburger!

“Food Fine, Ambiance...Not So Much”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

We went to Whiskey Creek because this chain can usually be counted on to provide a decent dinner at a reasonable price, and we were not disappointed in that regard. We ordered prime rib. The salad that preceded it was mediocre. The lettuce was bumping up against its use-by date and the tomatoes were past it. The prime rib, however, was a good bargain. It was a little tough but was done just right. My main complaint was that the horseradish sauce was thin and watery. Order regular horseradish with it and mix them together.

Our service was excellent. When our entrees arrived within seconds of our salads, our server took them back and provided us with fresh prime ribs when we were ready.

We ate in the bar because we didn't have to wait for a table there, and therein lay the problem. Our end of the bar had been taken over by four or five drunks who felt compelled to shout obscenities and insults at one another (their favorite was "retard" but there were others I will not print). This was apparently o.k. with the management, because nobody ever came back there to ask them to be considerate of others who lacked their sense of humor and outlook on life. Just another Friday night in North Platte, I guess. I would advise you not to sit in the bar, but that might not save you from folks such as these, because only a low wall separates the bar from the dining area, and the latter is very close to the former. Tell whomever seats you to keep you far away from there, especially if you are with children.
