Thank you Cedar Creek for a lovely, wonderful Mother’s Day dinner. We had the best service, a great selection of dinner entrees and just an overall terrific experience. Bravo to your wonderful, attentive staff from start to finish. As well we ended our meal with the most delicious coconut cake, so warm and yummy. Kudos to your chefs, servers and management. Well done!

Pre Mother’s Day celebration. Waitress was a little overwhelmed but warmed up at end of dinner. Father was hoping braised pork would have had bone in and made comment to our server. Mother liked Fish n chips and said great and so was Brown Derby cob salad. Don’t list bottles of wine on main menu, just by glass. Need to ask for separate wine list which offers bottle.

Overall was pleased with quality of food, atmosphere and service.

I ordered Prim rib Most tasteless prim rib I have had. My wife ordered Filet tasteless meat. Not sure they use any seasoning. My salad was fantastic. Wine was good. We were celebrating our anniversary and they brought a tasty ice cream cake dish with candles.
We took the left over meats home and warmed them up the next night for dinner. I used a tiny amount of seasoning and they were great. I am no chef but if I can make the left overs taste better than the hundred dollar meal something is wrong. We have dinner plans again next week with another couple. They made a reservation there. Thinking I will just have the salad and call it good my wife said the same thing. Are total bill with tip and a 3% debit card fee one hundred seventy five. Not worth that kind of money.

We hadn’t had our Monte Cristo sandwiches so long. So we went to celebrate a birthday, too. The food didn’t disappoint. It was so tasty and we really enjoyed our time there. Crystal, our server, was the best!

I had the salmon on baby spinach salad - it was fabulous! My friend doesn’t like fish, so she had the same salad, but substituted chicken. We both really liked our lunch. I plan on going back for dinner and ordering the salmon - it was cooked to perfection!

I'd rate Cedar Creek 5 stars, except for the fact that they charge a surcharge of 3% for using a credit card. This despite a new menu which they could have just raised the prices and done away with the surcharge. It's the principle. Getting close to where I would not recommend CC.

We love Cedar Creek! We spend at least $200 to $400 on special occasion meals!! Our only frustration is the militant style of the restaurant managers. When you come in to enjoy a a full meal, take very good care of your servers , add add contribute to a great local clientele, you don’t need to be told at the outset that you are on a time limit and then monitored during the meal. We never overstay. A bit more polish for the manager would make for a true five star experience! We love the food, the servers, and the ambiance!

We had not been to Cedar Creek since March 2020, when Covid hit. Tonight my husband and I both rated food and service a 10. My husband ordered lamb chops, medium rare, which were perfect. Great waitress, great environment from hostess to paying our tab. This is the Cedar Creek before Covid.

We were disappointed this week that despite making a reservation early in the day for dinner, the available outdoor seating was in a parking lot tent. Would like to be able to reserve front patio, outdoor patio or get an alert that the only available seating is in the parking lot. Recommend calling to make reservations until more detail is available through OpenTable.

Always a beautiful dinning area and very good service but the food wasn't the quality we were use to before covid. My prime rib of pork was dry and over cooked but the sauce and pears it was served with were a nice touch. They said it came with a sweet potato but it was really a yam, I guess most people wouldn't know the difference but they should call a yam a yam. Prices have gone up as with most places but I didn't think the meal was worth the cost.
