What has happened to the Dry Creek Grill, Saturday night it was almost empty. Service was on the slow side, our server was good but the wait for cocktails and food came out slow. I’ve been to Dry Creek for many years and it’s always been good, this time was a disappointment ! The menu has been reduced, many of my favorite dishes are off the menu. Last night i ordered steak frites, i think it was $32.00. The steak had more fat then meat and the frites were soggy and cold. Not sure i want to go back, our bill was $100.00
Plus. My honest opinion of my dinner is the for $10.00 at IN & OUT would of been a better choice.

This was our first visit. We really enjoyed the ambiance, music and the food. Our waiter was very good. We will definitely be back.

The crab cake appetizer was small but delicious. I had the bacon wrapped meatloaf and my husband had Filet stroganoff. My meal was perfect but my husbands steak was a bit tough in the stroganoff. He said the flavor was so good that he ate it all anyhow. We were too full to sample any dessert.

Our waitress was friendly and very efficient. She had excellent knowledge of the menu items.
I had salmon on white corn, spinach and gnocchi with buerre blanc sauce. It was so good. Husband had beef filet stroganoff on fettuccine noodles. He raved about it.
It’s noisy for any kind of table conversation.
A very energetic and busy restaurant.
We highly recommend it.

Our party of 5 started with craft cocktails, cornbread, and deviled eggs. We had the Taco Tuesday special, rib eye, salmon and the risotto. Everything was outstanding. The salmon is always especially great. Friendly and professional service from Charles on a busy evening. DCG is always worth going to.

The tables were a bit close together, which made for some awkwardness with the table next to us. Food was good overall and our server was excellent. Little on the pricey side but a pleasant outing overall.

This time, the food was just okay. There were 6 of us. The crab cakes were dry and tasteless; the steak was chewy, but, the cocktails and cornbread saved the day. The brisket plate was good.

Bread and appetizers were great. My pasta was just okay, not the softest. My son’s meal had chicken that was a bit too dry. My husband’s meal was good but vegetarian. Nothing special done or provided despite that we were celebrating son’s birthday. I didn’t bring it up but also not asked if celebrating anything but did comment why we were coming on Opentable reservations.
Customer service was outstanding otherwise.
First time here, recommended by friend, but not really a favorite of mine, maybe it’s a matter of what was ordered.
Spent about $200 for 5 people but not sure I felt I got my money’s worth. Maybe this is bc it is just bc Covid19 reopening.

We really liked Dry Creek. A couple of small improvements. We found the music to be a little loud for a dinner house. Genre and volume were more for a bar crowd. Also, we split an order of the ribeye steak. While we found the steak cook perfectly and tasty, it was cut very thin (only about 1/8 inch thick) for a ribeye. We were left with the distinct feeling that the chief was economizing on the steak portion. Mellow out the music and increase the thickness of your steaks and we'll be back.

Not quite the pre-pandemic DCG yet. Music was too loud. Food was very good, but seems not quite as good. Selections were limited. Service was friendly, but did not conform to the (COVID) standards noted on OpenTable. About 50% of the staff wore masks. It may take some time for them to get back to their former levels.

Our first visit to Dry Creek Grill since it re-opened for indoor dining was very pleasant. I had requested seating in the side room because of noise level and we had a guest we wanted to be able to converse with. The booth was nice, but the music is still TOO loud.
Our waitress was as nice as could be and apologized as she was serving inside and out, but she did a great job and was even thoughtful enough to bring me a second glass of ice without my asking.
Food there is always good! Between us we had salmon, short rib and beef stroganoff -- all delicious. Desserts were also excellent.
Would be nice of wine list was expanded and a few more of the affordable bottles offered.
It was nice to be back at a favorite and I'm sure we'll be returning soon.

The food was great and the ambience was superb, but the wait staff first left us sitting for 20 min after we ordered glasses of wine, with no stopping by to explain what was taking so long, and then completely forgot my date's zucchini side dish that she ordered. Thankfully, the Manager came over and stepped up to the plate and bought us desserts on the house, so he handled it perfectly.

Very good food. The dressing for the Caesar salad was lite and delicious! Chilean sea bass was phenomenal. The only thing that I would change is that they should advise customers that there is a wine list in addition to what is listed on the menu! We were not told until our meal was almost finished.

The table and the food were both very good, the service was terrible however. First we ordered a drink, the server ordered the wrong vodka and the martini was vanilla 🤮 our server never returned to check on us and I had to return the drink to the bar myself.
We ordered a bottle of wine with dinner and the server poured our first glass and never offered to refill. The final straw was she placed two menus for dessert on our table and said, the kitchen is closing if you want dessert....”
This totally ruined an otherwise wonderful evening. The only saving grace was the bar manager Manny. He remade the martini and was very apologetic.
