I definitely would return to try more dishes from their menu since we went for Mohter's Day Brunch which was limited but still very good. The prime rib was very tender and amazing. My wife like her honey baked ham while my daughter enjoyed her french toast. Service was well-timed and friendly.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time forThis was my first time for dinner at this restaurant. The food wa s OUTSTANDING! I will be back... for sure!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI was hesitant at first...Reading the reviews I had 2nd thoughts about going to this restaurant but I'm glad I went. The food was delicious! Every one of our orders were perfect! Service was outstanding! And the prices were VERY reasonable. I'll gladly recommend this restaurant to all my friends and family.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good experienceWe dined at Cedar Creek Inn on the Saturday before Mother's Day and of course, it was very busy. Aside from about a 15 minute wait, when we arrived everything was great. The service was awesome as it always is when we dine there, our courses came out in a timely manner, and overall everything was perfect. I was a bit disapointed that they don't do anything special for the mothers (i.e. dessert or rose etc), but that small detail didn't take away from our overall experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerOver all our dinner experience was good. Getting together with family is always great. Service was fabulous. the beef entrees were really great and portions i thought matched the price for the plate. I was disappointed with one of the "specials" they offered. I ordered the swordfish which usually is a bit pricey anyway. I was let down that the portion was i thought a little small, fish was over cooked and smothered with sauce.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMlovely eveningit was a thursday night so not overly crowded. we had a bottle of wine and had a shrimp cocktail with huge, delicious shrimp. wonderful caesar salad like they used to be.....even had sliced parmesan cheese on top. then king crab that was already split open and laid out so it was easy easy to eat and delicious. garlic bread to die for.....yum! and total indulgence with a slice of tollhouse cookie 'pie' and ice cream. the meal cost a bit but it was fabulous. have had too many expensive meals and left hungry or didn't enjoy. this was great!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is my go-toThis restaurant is my go-to place when I want to meet friends for lunch (and sometimes dinner). I can always count on good food, good service and fair prices. Had the beef dip this last time and it was delicious. We try to sample many items on the menu but often go back to our favorites. The ambience is very nice, too.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMore than $200 meal for fiveMore than $200 meal for five people.

We will definately go back soon.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNice atmosphereWe had a group of twelve for my mother's 81th birthday. The service was great. The food very good. Good menu variety and reasonable prices. The atmosphere was very nice. They can easily accommodate larger groups. My advice is to have the coconut cake. It's the best coconut cake that my husband and I have ever had. Take a piece home if you're too full to eat it after dinner. It's worth it.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, atmosphere & serviceFood, atmosphere & service was very good !
This was our first time there, & we will be back.
The menu is varied, so you can have salad, a burger,
or a full meal. The Tollhouse Cookie for dessert was amazing !!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot to meet friendsGreat spot to meet friends between Pasadena and San Clemente.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMCandle-lit dining roon. VeryCandle-lit dining roon. Very spacious and beautiful ambiance. A bit dark in there and hard to see the menues. Excellent authentic tasting Caesar salad. Cedar plank salmon was wonderful. The side of mustard mashed potatoes sounded weird, but turned out to be really good and the whole grain flecks of spicy mustard, just right with the salmon. The pot roast was tender and cooked well, but needed more seaoning and was a bit bland. We liked our experience at Cear Creek in Brea.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than expectedThe outdoor patio with large fireplace was surrounded by trees, very nice. We got more food than expected, menu said main entrees come with a salad or soup but also had mashed potatoes and veggies. We tried 3 different entrees and all were very good. Comfortable chairs for being outside and great service. Will be going again.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful lunch andWe had a wonderful lunch and of course, the coconut cake - not to be missed!

A bit noisy but it did not bother us.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversay dinnerWe were early and they seated us right a way. Good appetizer, drinks, and service, I had the scrimp scampi, which were butterflyed but still had the shells on. O.K. that was o.k. but different. What I didn't care for was the spinach. I've never had it aldente' before. Still needed some cooking time.
Since it was our anniversary, which Open Table passed on to them, they brought us a brownie sundae on the house.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOur evening was wonderful.Our evening was wonderful.

Would recommend to anyone wanting a better brunch then most places where you have to get up several times to get your food. A very tasteful choice of menu items for most patrons to enjoy3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPrime Rib & New York SteakPrime Rib & New York Steak were outstanding. French Onion was excellent though a very small serving. Would like to see filet mignon on the menu. The New York steak was the only choice.

Felt a little uncomfortable towards the end because we were the only ones left in the restaurant area. But I really like your place and I always recommend it because we always have a pleasant experience there.3/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAttentive and friendly service,Attentive and friendly service, tasty food ( love the coconut shrimp ). Although my Monte Cristo sandwich was rich in flavor, it was not hot when served. This, historically, continues to be an ongoing issue with this particular item. Moreover, when asked to heat the sandwich, it is returned hot yet dry. Presumably, these are prepared early in the day, then warmed upon ordering....?2/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAN OLD FAVORITE!Cedar Creek has been an old standby for many years, and this visit reinforced why I continue to dine here. I had the Ahi Tuna sandwich, which I honestly believe is one of the best tasting versions of this dish I've had anywhere. The clam chowder was fresh and hearty, with a nice smoky flavor from the bacon bits. Service was good and the restaurant itself was warm and inviting. This is always a guaranteed hit for business lunches.2/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
