We hosted a party of seven for lunch. Most chose a burger of some variation, but a couple chose the soup and salad, and one chose the Reuben gluten-free. Service was excellent, but the burgers tasted like they were frozen meat, despite the claims of fresh ground. I'd go back for a second look, but am not a blind fan...even... More

Went to Creek Road with a group of friends to celebrate friendship and triumph over a traumatic accident. The restaurant was fabulous and food did not disappoint. People shared seasonal salads and appetizers including a watermelon salad, as well as a baked avocado salad. For entrees people had pork belly, baked red snapper, and steak. Everyone was happy. The restaurant... More

Stopped in with family and had an absolutely delicious lunch! We all ordered different items and each of us couldn't say enough about our delicious choices!! The waiters seemed a bit confused, but don't let that distract you from an exceptional meal!!

Excellent service. Wonderful food. Great wine and beer selection. Goat cheese appetizer is yummy. Pear and bleu cheese salad is mild and delicious. Truly fine dining in a nice, casual & kid-friendly space.

We decided to try Creek Road Café for my father's birthday dinner and we were pleasantly surprised at the food and service. It was much much better than we expected. The food was simply amazing and creative with top notch service. It was a bit on the pricey side but well worth every cent! We'll be back again soon!

Three of us had lunch on February 24. My date ordered the Founder's BLT. She said it was very tasty. I had the soup of the day along with the crab cakes. As usual the soup was unique and very favorable. The daily soup is one of the reasons why I eat here. Crab cakes are also recommended Service was... More

It's hard to get in here so call early for a reservation. Everyone enjoyed their food and my only comment was that the pork chop was very good but not excellent, a little bit over cooked and therefore not as juicy as it could have been (ordered medium but prepared more medium well). I still enjoyed it, along with all... More

Don't let the exterior or the modestly named Creek Road Cafe fool you - this lovely little establishment serves restaurant quality food. Happened upon it for lunch with the kiddos and can't wait to go back on our own and try it for dinner! Superb food and top notch service.

Nice cozy place where the food is always good and the wait staff is always friendly and helpful. I usually take the waiters suggestions on what to eat and have not been disappointed.
