We waited over 40 minutes for 2 individual pizzas and a kid's chicken fingers plate. We saw our waitress mix up two other tables' orders. When the patrons noticed, she asked them if they had taken bites yet and when they said no, she switched their plates around. Yuck!

Our food was good when it arrived, but it wasn't so good that it was worth a 40 minute wait. There was also no toilet paper in the ladies room.

It felt like they were vastly understaffed the day we were there. Since I've only been once, I don't know if this is the norm or not.

Was so pleased, the elk burger was prepared perfect and the fried were great. The service was fast, friendly and attentive without hovering.

The sour grapes review that precedes this one is unfortunately not accurate. We had BLT & Philly steak, one with fresh cut fries and the other with onion rings. Fries and rings are worth the visit, sandwiches were average. Beer cold and service friendly. Didn't have a burger so cannot comment on that. Was asked twice if we wanted a beer refill.

The ranking of a five in a little town doesn’t mean a thing. We were hoping to enjoy some grilled burgers, but the creek did not deliver. The burgers were definitely fried and small. Puny would be a better word to describe them. My wife ordered a hamburger and I ordered an elk burger with onion rings. Even the onion rings left a lot to be desired. The onions were still crunchy and not cooked. The service was terrible. After our order and drinks were delivered our server never came back to check on us. The only attention that we received was when they dropped off our food in a hurry even though we had to wait over 25 minutes for it. I’ve heard good food takes time, but this was just barely average at best. Our server was Jennifer and we had to choke down our food since she never checked on us, let alone see that we had nothing left to drink. Besides Jennifer there was one other waitress and between the two of them there were 28 customers at 8 tables and 3 groups at the bar. Why in over 45 minutes could we not get refills on our drinks? I will never go back to this place again let alone recommend it to anybody. We were at the creek on July 3 just after 2 in the afternoon.

The on-line menu needs to be updated. I was all ready for a club sandwich but it is no longer on the menu. Great fried mushrooms and the personal pan pizza was very good. Need to develop a unique signature sandwich and a few sandwiches that aren't already available at every other restaurant in town. Service was very good for being busy. Will go back for more pizza. Bartender needs to greet people as they come in.
