    This restaurant is classic goodness! Everything is fresh & you have many options. We had burgers & my husband had the French dip! His was perfection. Our burgers were yummy. I gave them 4 stars because they were really good but not over the top. We have been here many times- so many good things to choose from. Fish & chips, fish tacos, grilled chicken with tomatoe salad, filet of sole over spinach, great salads & desserts :-)

    There is nothing on this menu I wouldn't order. Everyone's food was excellent, and the only thing that prevented me from giving it 5 stars all around was the noise level and the service which was good, but not outstanding. Beer lovers will be in ecstasy; the beer list is extensive. We will most definitely be back, and have already recommended it to friends.

    Our group had an excellent Saturday night out. The food was awesome. I got the ribs (a special) and it was so funny because the portion was gigantic! It looked like they were straight out of The Flinstones! I took the leftovers home and seriously fed 4 more people! My girlfriend had the dainty scallops with corn - a dish I recommended for her. And the guys had roast chicken- not a drop was left on their plates. Thank you Cedar Creek- we'll be back!

    Had a pleasant dinner for four. Waitress was polite, however could have been more attentive, brought a bottle of beer without a glass, meal timing was a little off and rushed taking orders.

    We were visitors to the area and found the restaurant highly reviewed on Trip Advisor. Liked valet parking which was free except for tip. Liked ambiance of restaurant which was nice but still comfortable for casual dining. Found the menu selections creative and liked that there was a simply done section. Able to accomodate everyone in the party with their different dietary needs. While food was very good, we thought that it was overpriced. My daughter chose not to have one of the sides listed and just asked for some plain pasta and we were charged $4 on top of the $27 for 4 scallops. While we appreciated that they accomodated her special request, I thought that was not necessary.

    I am never disappointed with Cedar Creek. The wine list is large enough to satisfy most, and the beer selection is the best you can find at any restaurant in the area. Always feel safe ordering anything on the menu, you will never be disappointed in the quality. Also keep an eye out on their weekly specials, 1/2 price bottles of wine on Mondays cant be beat. As for service, talk about top notch. Very reassuring when you hardly have to ask for anything you want/need. Very attentive staff.

    My friends and I had a great night out on Monday (9-15). We were a table of 5 and our waiter did not rush us. We enjoyed our 1/2 priced bottle of wine and then some. Our dinners were specials and off the menu and did not disappoint us. We even had room for dessert, one slice of pie and 5 forks of course! We will be back with more friends!

    Overall food and service was good. I ordered the Crusty Tuna. When it was delivered I had to ask if that was the appertiser portion it was so small. Four small pieces of Tuna on a bed of noodles for $27.00. I felt that was excessive. Will return.

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary Saturday night and wanted to try a new restaurant. We had our 9 year old so we wanted a restaurant that would have good adult food, and also accommodate a child. This restaurant did not disappoint. We had scallops and braised short ribs, and our child had chicken fingers - but it was fresh and not like cheap frozen dinner. The service was very good, and the atmosphere upscale casual. We will definitely be back.

    Went for a birthday dinner with friends. I was surprised that the premises was more upscale than I expected since it advertises itself as a pub. Very busy on a saturday night, but there was room at the bar for a pre-dinner cocktail. The booth was huge, big enough for 6. Started with Angry Muscles, which were exceptional. The calimari was good, and the clams on the half shell were outstanding. Others had the angus burger, scallops and short ribs. All rated as good. My Romanian steak was a disappointment; stingy and I had to send it back to heat it since it came from the kitchen tepid. I would probably go back if I lived closer to the restaurant. BTW, the service was very good.

    Enjoyed the grilled salmon with a side of sautéed spinach with onions. James was the friendly server; he was assisted by several others who were very efficient. The rather tasteless sliced Italian bread that accompanies the meal should be offered with olive oil and parmesan cheese in addition to just butter. Overall, the Cedar Creek meal was great.

    We've come here before and had a great experience, but we were here on Mother's Day and it was just ok. We ordered the most expensive steak on the menu and it was strangely served in a pasta bowl which was awkward to eat. Also, their dinnerware was very scuffed and looked unappealing. We like this place but for a special occasion and the prices, we felt we could have made a better choice.

    Whether your looking for a full entree or just want to pick , cedar creek has it all. Small plates for sharing, intersting combinations, good wine, great beers! What more do you need in this great local hot spot. Where veranda held court for many years, cedar creek looks like it is here to stay, and thank goodness for that. If you dine early they have a wonderful, generous early menu with all the same itmes you find on the regular menu. Just make sure you always have room for something sweet, you Must have a chocolate chip cookie or two! Home made, the Best!

    Very loud. My six year old son got a headache and we needed to leave. The food was not all that great and expensive to boot. Two hamburgers and a side of onion rings came close to $100 with tip. Not worth it. The server was kind and polite. Would not go back anytime soon. Better burgers elsewhere. We were put in a corner with a large party and it was not a good situation. And the bathrooms were smelly (septic tank issue possibly). Don't need to go back.

    Finding a good Cajun entree on the north shore is harder that finding an actual Cajun! Wasn't expecting amazing gumbo, but that's what I got! First time here and have to say, very impressed. Service was perfect, food delicious (pulled pork sliders were solid!) and my wife's simply grilled fish was stellar. Server sweet as can be. Definitely be back. Oh yeah - valet parking - - disaster! 22 minutes to get my car!
