We had dinner one night (vege stack and texan chicken burger) and we couldn't fault it. The place is a beautiful country pub and lots of rooms to eat and drink in. The service is very welcoming and professional at the same time. We thought...that the service was fantastic and didn't know till we were leaving that they were 2 staff down due to sickness so they did an extremely amazing effort considering. The menu had great variety and plenty of drinks on offer as well. Really great place, value for money and what you'd expect from a Victorian country pub. Looking forward to going back.More

My family and I Visited Creswick. We thought we would try the American Hotel. I was greatly surprised by the warmth of the place and friendly staff. The food was exceptional. We had the peppered calamari salad, the American burger and the pork spare ribs....Great atmosphereMore

Ambiance – Energetic feel in the place COVID 19 – They seemed to distance tables very well even though they were very busy. They seem to accept walk-in but I suspect they had room outside. Staff – Pleasant but not very attentive. I will put...it down to the fact that they were packed on the night we dined. Unfortunately waited nearly an hour for our meal which was disappointing as we had booked our table in advance. If I was advised on arrival the wait time, we would have gone elsewhere. But I was told 20 min after ordering. Meal – Nothing to write home about, it was pub grub. Nice but I would not go again. Too many nicer places in the area. American Southern Fried Chicken – tasty but I wish they did not use “tenderloins” as it felt like a kids meal NY Burger – HUGE and very tasty Value for money but would not go againMore

We had our end of year work party at the American in Creswick. What an awesome time was had by all. We had pre dinner drinks and finger food on the balcony which was great with views and live entertainment. Dinner was in the Lindsay...Room which is just beautiful with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Dinner was awesome - I myself had the fish and hubby had a steak. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the American for all your functions.. Thanks again!More

Had our work break up over the weekend with drinks on the Forrest View Balcony and dinner in the Lindsey Room, the deck was spacious with lovely views of the forest behind the pub. Great atmosphere - the staff, food and service were all amazing....Would not hesitate to recommend the American Creswick for others looking to hold a function. We had a great night, thanks again!More

Great food and service. Was very warm near the fire in the front room. Back dining room lacked atmosphere however. Wouldnt hesitate to visit again though.
