  • "We are out-of-towners and obviously not familiar with the nearby places, but we were pleasantly surprised with Creek View. The food was great, service was speedy, and not too expensive. From the terrace, there is an awesome view of the creek. I'm sure we will be stopping in again before we head back home."

  • "Wonderful restaurant, from the time we were greeted by the hostess until we walked out the door. Bar staff was friendly and engaging, our waiter did a great job being there exactly when needed. The menu provided great options, and the food was perfect. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very nice - as the name says "Creekview" there is a wonderful view along the entire side of the dinning room of the creek which runs alongside the restaurant. The location is also a huge plus, located in the downtown Williamsville area there are a ton things to do either before of after dinner / lunch or just drinks. Definitely a great evening with good people and food!"

  • "My wife and I made reservations at the Creekview for 7 pm on a recent Saturday - it's a good thing we did, because we had a 10 minute wait regardless. The restaurant was packed, and quite noisy. Regardless, we were seated with a very nice view of Ellicott Creek and the service was good. The food was what we expected and well prepared. The side salad could use a bit more creativity. In all, the Creekview is exactly as advertised, and is a nice evening out with reasonable prices."

  • "Been to Creekview several times; food is always good; service very good; nice view of the Creek. Parking lot is a mess when restaurant is full. Need more parking. can get a bit noisy when full, but love this restaurant and would recommend it to friends and family. Good for business lunches and dinners. Not exactly a place for children but would not hesitate to take family there for special occasions. Good job."

  • "This restaurant was recommended by a local resident. It is rustic and charming. The service was very good, the staff members were all pleasant and genuine. They checked on us with being intrusive and seemed truly interested in whether we were enjoying our meals. The meals were nothing special. I had the small plates tapas and a small Ceasar salad. The tapas was OK; the salad was flavorless with sprinkled parmesan cheese and no anchovies. I almost missed what might be the true jewel of this place, the creek that runs behind it. If you are not sitting on the outside patio or you don't walk around the to street side of the building, you wouldn't even know it's there. There's more to the name "Creekview" than I realized."

  • "My experience was horrible. I was first greeted by an anxious, frantic hostess who seemed slightly annoyed by her job.I waited 10 mins for water and twice as long for a waitress to take my order. I Ordered the fried chicken, it was bland and took almost an hour to be served. The meal included cornbread but for some reason they were out of corn bread and I was told they couldn't make more or substitute anything in place of the cornbread - although they didn't reduce the price of the meal and stated if I order a replacement it would be added as a side and they would charge me for the side in a addition to my full priced meal (which was missing a key item from the meal) our waitress was not friendly and service was extremely slow. "

  • "We have been to this restaurant many times, but never before experienced any problem. I Was at least 30 minutes before our entrée was delivered after we finished appetizer. The waitress did not stop over once to explain or apologize. Was it her fault or the kitchen? It wasn't crowded. "

  • "We scheduled an early dinner on Mother's Day because of a planned pickup at BUF airport. We were seated promptly and, although service was a little slow, we made allowance for the day's events. Our table was within sight of the nearby rushing creek, but there are patio-like tables that overlook the flowing water. That would be a nice touch for a planned special event. We enjoyed the shrimp-and-corn chowder, and entrees of lobster and pan seared scallops. The scallops were served with a delicious brown sauce, potato gnocchi, green beans and peas. The vegetables were fresh and perfectly prepared. The house-made desserts were all terrific. And I'll mention finally that the coffee was terrific, which many restaurants miss."

  • "If you are looking for that special place, or great food, outstanding service, large quantities and reasonable prices, your search is over. The Creekview can be the romantic spot for that one in a million person, it can be the place you take friends to impress with you excellent choice, it can be an ideal place to just sit back, enjoy the view and a great meal. It's all there waiting for your arrival. Keep in mind, restaurants like this are in demand so reservations are recommended. No, I am NOT related to the owners !!!"

  • "Creekview has always been a local gem. It has everything one could want. Parking, location right on a creek with a great terrace - glassed in and heated so useable in the winter. The food is always exceptional and it runs from the usual great burgers to very imaginative dishes. They now take, and recommend, reservations so that makes getting a table much easier. It is always busy, but the staff is very experienced and professional and you get great service. It is not quiet, but the energy and enthusiasm is catching, and it's a fun place to go for a great meal. "

  • "I do like making reservations on line. Food is always good but now with the new owners it is even better. The specials are what we usually get, never disappointing."

  • "The food is always delicious and the scene is fun. We dined on the terrace overlooking the Glen Falls. It is so pretty. I had the Oliver's burger which is so delicious with caramelized onions. I was doing no carbs so they substituted homemade applesauce for the fries. It was very good. My firends had the fish and they said it was excellent. It is our go to place and we dine here at least once a week. We were not doing dessert but I know the desserts are fabulous and homemade!"

  • "Our dinner most recently was great. Service was prompt and courteous, table was ready when reservations were scheduled for and food was delicious. I choose the scallop and gnocchi small plate and wished it was a large plate or at least a few more of the gnocchi. A little stingy on the portion even though it was a small plate ($14.99) and the scallops were overcooked but the dish on the whole was delicious. I would order it again but perhaps request a side dish of additional gnocchi, they teased me with 4 . It was a sunny Saturday evening and the view was spectacular as always. I wish consideration would be given to the interior decor. It is long, long overdue for a facelift."

We asked for a larger table and were accommodated immediately even though the restaurant was busy. The food was very good and the service was even better. Great experience"

  • "Wow, this was NOT the same place I remember having a good meal at a couple years ago. I'm sorry we chose Creekview for our birthday dinner celebrations: food lousy, service substandard. Our Caesar salads were smothered with a topping that appeared to be bread crumbs? My bolognese sauce was very unappealing in every way imaginable and the chicken parm was smothered with sauce (usually a sign of trying to make up for poor quality meat). Of our 5 meals, only the beef on weck was edible. We won't be back!"

  • "My wife and I had a great experience on a Saturday night. We were seated right away at a table looking over the creek which had a beautiful view. The wait staff was very friendly and our food was fantastic. I enjoyed the gnocchi while my wife had a generous cob salad. We both split the Brie and artichoke dip as an appetizer which was delicious. Would recommend to anyone looking for a unique atmosphere. Everything was reasonably priced too."
