    We had notified the restauraunt that we were there to celebrate my boyfriends 27th birthday there were 12 of us at our table that night and there was only one waitress to serve all 12 of us and she didnt look like she was happy to be at her job. I even made several jokes and she didnt seem to care to laugh. She took a long time to get drinks to the table and didn't bring out bread and honey butter until our apps were on the table. She never bothered to ask us if we wanted more bread, she simply cleared the table and let us wait 30+ minus for our main courses. The staff never bothered to sing happy birthday to my boyfriend either or bring him out dessert. Even though the food is good, having a server with a poor attitude ruins everything.

    We have been coming to sq1 Canyon Creek for years- even got engaged here! Never a bad meal. Every time we come it is always a great steak! We have celebrated quite a few occasions here and they always make you feel special. Great service, nice ambiance and best steakhouse! Only downside is The smoking on the patio while you eat - Really a turn off! They make an excellent mojito. Canyon Creek is a great location and excellent for date night.

    I went to Canyon Creek with 4 of my girlfriends for a night out. We made a reservation in advance for a table of 5 they only had one table avialable to accomodate us by the kitchen (which was fine). Devon our waitress was amazing. However the staff assisting brought us the wrong food twice. They when our actually order came the split my order with the one of my friends. They fixed the order and Devon gave me the option of re-ordering my dish. I had waited enough so I don't the burger (cut in half) with a salad (only 1 salad dressing available). They burger was cold. My friends ribs were burnt. The manager came over & offered us 2 comp desserts which were wonderful. Overall (other then devon & the manager) my experience was awful.

    I came to celebrate my wedding anniversary and I have a great time, the service was great the wine recommended was perfect for the occasion and the food was fantastic. I was at the end very happy and my wife was very impress, it was our first time in this restaurant and I knew my wife want to come here for a long time, so I surprised her. She was very happy. Thank you for making our 44th wedding anniversary very memorable and special.

    A very good experience overall. Steak was cooked to perfection with excellent crispy fries. Juicy burger with tasty mash potatoes. The chicken burger was a bit overcooked so the crust was a very dark brown.

    Returned to Canyon Creek after some time had passed from a previously enjoyed evening meal. This time we had attentive service from the time we walked in the front door until we finished our dine as well. Cole, our server, brought warm bread with honey butter, which was enjoyed while waiting for our entrees. We both ordered the cedar plank salmon, basmati rice and vegetables. with a glass of wine. Food was delivered hot and nicely plated. I know Canyon Creek has mostly steak selections on it's menu, but pasta, chicken and seafood choices were equally tempting. Dining at Canyon Creek remains my favorite restaurant to celebrate special occasions.

    We went for my husband's 72 birthday. We had a reservation but it was not busy anyway. m As we have done at many restaurants, we told the server that we were not in any hurry. She actually listened and we had a great unhurried dinner. The food was very good and cooked to the doneness we requested. The server, Megan, was friendly and helpful. She really made the evening enjoyable. The only little complaint I have is that ther meal came without vegetables which is odd.But the food was plentiful and tasty. Great dinner.

    We dine here regularly and find the food and service reliable. Had my usual dukkah-crusted chicken & quinoa salad which was good but I think had less of the flavouring on the chicken than usual. Hubby enjoyed his usual salmon and veg. It would be nice if there was more than just one type of vegetable (this time it was asparagus). Kristen provided excellent, friendly service. Patio was a nice place to dine.

    Ordered the new york strip. It was quicked perfectly but was very tough. Definitely not a triple A cut of meat. I will probably go back to the restaurant but will not waste money on the steak again. My dad ordered the prime rib. It was also cooked perfectly but was not prime rib. It actually appeared like a cut of roast beef not prime rib.

    Live close by, but haven't been in years. This was a pleasant surprise! There were 9 of us celebrating my husband's birthday and he chose the restaurant. Food was EXCELLENT! We all ordered something different and everybody REALLY liked what they had. Service was a tad slow getting started, but turned out just fine once we ordered and received our drinks and food. Server was friendly, patient and very accomodating.

    We had dinner and the food was very good. The service started out well with attentive waiters/waitresses but the wait became considerable once we were ready to order coffee/dessert. The coffee and dessert then took a very long time to come; perhaps 15-20 minutes. When we were ready to pay, again our waitress was no where in site and we waited a considerable period of time to pay. All in all a good experience but we did feel a little neglected during the latter part of the meal.

    I booked a table for Father's day. My Father, who is type 1 diabetic.... asked for the nutritional information for the menu. They could not provide one. The manager came out to the table and told us to look it up online.... which there is nothing online. He took his units and ended up with extremely high sugar because the menu did NOT specify exactly what was on his burger.. making his "guesstimate" extremely incorrect. We had to take him to the hospital. Myself, I asked for something that was gluten free as I am Celiac... I ended up with the "Beer Butter Pickerel" as per the menu. Which was actually "Beer BATTERED Pickerel"... battered with GLUTEN. I will never ever be going back to this place.

We were in a bit of a rush and our waitress was highly accommodating. She ensured our food was prepared quickly and she was a top notch waitress. My mom couldn't stop raving about how good her food was and my dad and I both also thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Great dining experience overall!

    Attended Mother's Day special dinner, steak and lobster with Hollandaise sauce and choice of salads and deserts. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the Hollandaise sauce was very good. Portions were just right and the potato and asparagus were a good match. Salads were nicely done and fresh. Dessert choices were well thought out and diverse enough to offer choice. The service is always very good at all of the locations.

    It came time for my brother and I to treat our mother to a special Birthday dinner. She had exclaimed to me that she hasn't had a really good steak dinner in quite some time, and that a trip to Canyon Creek would be appropriate. When we arrived we were greeted warmly and sat immediately (due to the reservation I suppose), but it was a pleasant start to the night nonetheless. Our server (whose name I regrettably have forgotten) was incredibly warm, accommodating, knowledgeable, and served us with a friendly smile the entire evening. When we received our food, it was in a timely fashion, and each plate looked nicely presented. The food itself was outstanding, cooked to our specifications. I would definitely recommend Canyon Creek to a friend.

    extremely kind hostesses - opening the doors for me (using a walker) coming in and leaving........attentive, knowledgeable, waiter, efficient service with lots of wait staff, all being speedy and professional. We don't eat out in higher end restaurants very often, but it was my birthday and I had wanted to try it out for dinner. I put Canyon Creek on the same level as the KEG ...BUT with a much more rounded menu.......The new drink Moscow Mule was excellent.......I also tried the new avocado & tomato salad - excellent flavor and a nice serving.......warm loaf and honey/butter very tasty.......its wonderful to get a complimentary appetizer. We will come again, for sure.
