Great service and great food for brunch. Don’t know why I never came here! I’m looking forward to coming back for dinner and for brunch again.

We love Cedar Creek! It is one of our go-to places when we have a celebration. Saturday was an early birthday celebration for our daughter. The food was excellent and the service outstanding. We were also reminded how much we love the look of the interior with its high ceilings and beautiful decorations.

Sadly, this place has seemingly worsening. Food is standard and cost is same, moderate. Other favorites have fresher recipes and food.

We enjoyed our dinner at Cedar Creek. The food was delicious and service was great. It was nice to hear the live music in the lounge as we walked by. We will come again one day soon to enjoy the music!

This was our first time dining here. It was our 12 year anniversary and we had our 3 year old daughter with us. We had a lovely meal and our servers were very nice and helpful. We had a quick sneak peak into the bar area where there was a live singer and musician that were very good.

In the past we had good experiences with Cedar Creek Inn, so we decided to have dinner there on our wedding anniversary. We reserved a table through OpenTable and selected "anniversary" for an occasion option. We didn't expect a free dessert, but my wife was a little disappointed that none of the host, the server or the manager mentioned anything. Our reservation was before 6pm, so the place was almost empty and we still got the smallest table. It was O.K. that we got the wrong appetizer first and had to return it. It was just a mistake. But overall the food wasn't great. My wife ordered French onion soup and pork rib and thought both were too salty. We won't come back for a while.

Excellent service even though we arrived during the height of the Saturday evening rush. Their salmon and short ribs were done to perfection. Topping it all off with cheesecake and the chocolate ganache made for a very special evening. Cedar Creek never disappoints; it will continue to be one of our "Go To" locations for special events.

My first time visiting this restaurant. I loved the ambience and the open-air setting. The food was excellent as was the service. My only complaint, is the live music in the lounge bar area may have been a little loud. However overall it was a great experience.

Food was great but at times I thought the waiter had forgotten about our table. No bread delivered, no salad suggested - just somewhat off at my last visit.

Cedar Creek Inn has a delectable and varied menu to meet all dietary needs. Their wait staff is kind, generous and efficient without being overbearing. I have never had a bad meal or experience at your restaurant and that is why it is my favorite place to celebrate events for me and my friends!

There's a service problem and a management problem. Got a take out bag and walked out without it. Called almost immediately on the road, host kept changing the story, wouldn't let us talk to the writer, finally claimed it was tossed out because they waited "two hours" for us to return - a lie. Not worth patronizing if that's the attitude.

The Sea Bass special was great, as were the coconut shrimp appetizers. Service in the outside patio was a bit slow, but pleasant and personable.

I ordered the Monkfish. It was tough, to the point I had to cut it with a knife and leave a portion uneaten. I was sitting with a friend whom I had not seen in a long time and most of my attention was spent on her. If I had been there in other circumstances, I would have returned it. Also, my waitress came to the table, let us say, rarely. If she had been more attentive, I might have been able to return it, but I was nearly finished, thanks to my knife, by the time she came around.

We were very disappointed in our recent visit to Cedar Creek. We went because of a special offer last Tuesday. When we arrived, our server came immediately and took our drink order but from then on, it went downhill. She never returned for another 15 to 20 minutes to take our order. When our order arrived, it was delivered by other servers. We never saw our server again after we were almost done with our meal. She never asked how our meal was, which was not prepared properly (steak well done versus medium rare requested). We didn’t complain only for the fact that it would take too long to receive it again. After our main meal dishes were removed, she finally came back and brought two desserts that we did not order and which she did not ask us about first. We asked her what the selections were and she told us these were it. We told her that according to the offer, there were 3 selections of which we both wanted the third. Our server then brought us our proper desserts and then finally apologized.

The interesting thing about our server is that she asked the table next to us how their meal was!

For a restaurant that we have frequented in the past and which has received good ratings, we feel your quality has gone down and needs to improve.

The ambiance is lovely but it was extremely loud. Service was excellent. My food was okay. I wish the seafood Benedict came on an English muffin. They were really just fish cakes with poached eggs on top. But the coconut cake is worth the price of admission.
