“Awesome food”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

Dinner here is the best around for the value. Make sure you try the calamari. Also, the steaks are to die for. ! Summertime you can sit out on the patio on the Catskill Creek and watch the boats go by! Definitely recommend.

“Nice surprise”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

We arrived in torrential rain. The long parking lot was potholed dirt and gravel, but we persisted and drove carefully to the where the restaurant seemed to be. Minimal signage and lighting from the parking lot side didn't help. Finally we jumped over a large deep puddle and made it inside. The atmosphere is that of a generic plastic shack, but it's directly on Catskill Creek, with a view of the water and the village of Catskill in the background, very pleasant. I had 8 oysters of various sizes for $11; they were fresh and perfect with the mignonette sauce. Then I had steamed mussels in Thai coconut curry sauce; they were clean and fresh and cooked perfectly, and the sauce was deliciously spicy; the portion was very generous for an inexpensive appetizer. I also ordered the arugula salad, which was fresh and served with red and yellow beets and a nice dressing. For dessert we shared a delicious chocolate lava cake, excellent quality chocolate and baked perfectly. The space got a little noisy, okay very noisy, once the band started and patrons started screaming in delight or something. But the food quality and value were awesome, the service was just fine, and the water view is priceless. I'll be back again and again. Definitely one of Catskill's very best.

“Fair to Good”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

I always enjoy a restaurant by water, Creek Side is right on Catskill Creek. Relaxing place for lunch, inside and outside dinning.

I had the Tuscan Chicken sandwich, it was good but dry, had to ask for mayo. My friend had a bacon burger, both sandwiches were big and we had plenty to eat.

Service was very slow and the restaurant wasn't packed. The waitress was pleasant, however, so that sort of made up for the slow service.

I would try again.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

We have been to Creek Side several times and have never been disappointed. The calamari is to die for with its balsamic reduction sauce. Their penne a'la vodka some of the best I ever had. On our last visit they had a class reunion so there was only outside seating (a plus because the weather was perfect) and we were concerned that we would have to wait a long time for our food. Not so! The service was very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant for dinner.

“Waterfront View.”
Reviewed June 20, 2014 via mobile

Nice place. We had salmon and asparagus. Good food. Band outside was a little loud, but food, view, and company made up for it.
