Quality was not worth the cost. Cesar salad was flavorless with small amt for price. One person ate half the chicken due to quality. Requested salt to boost flavor of beef stroganoff otherwise blah. Don’t plan on going back as we all agreed for almost $200 we could get a lot more for the money elsewhere for half the price.

The menu was good they did run out of the Braised short ribs so I had to take my second choice which was new your steak. I asked for the steak cooked "blue" and it came rare which was OK but not what ordered.
They did give a "birthday" dessert which was very good and included with our meal.

This was out first time at Dry Creek Grill and will be our only visit. The food was unimpressive to say the least. I had Mac and cheese as a side and the noodles were under cooked and there was absolutely no flavor to the dish at all. I’ve had much better food at much cheaper establishments. The atmosphere was nice but the service was only ok. Our food came quickly but no one asked if we wanted any refills on drinks. The bread served before dinner was also nothing special. We went elsewhere for desert for fear of being underwhelmed yet again.

Good, moderate ($$$) play for elegant dining. Yes, you can be casual and they lots of TV screens on sports, but it's nice to dress up for an excellent dining experience.

Menu was limited for New Year's Eve. so we missed having our favorites: Crab Cakes, their meatloaf, and pulled pork.

We dined at the Dry Creek Grill for the first time last night. Wow. It was absolutely fabulous. The food was amazing, the atmosphere is unique and comfortable and the service was very good. The roasted chicken was otherworldly and the brisket was awesome. We will definitely be back!

Everything was rushed. The waitress would run by, barely stopping to ask us if we needed anything. We asked for a side of Brussels sprouts and we got them ahead of our mea and they were not even charred. The salmon plate was uncooked. They accommodated us by allowing for my sister to order another dish but the sauce of the butternut squash ravioli was tasteless and the raviolis were hard. As if they cooked them ahead and allowed them to dry out. It was disappointing but I will give them another try.

First time there and wanted to celebrate Christmas Eve. When we arrived they had a special menu of hardly anything we liked. So we had to choose something. The waitress had told me
The salmon was on their regular menu, so I ordered that. It was dry and was supposed to come with veggies. Well all it had was a little mashed potatoes under the salmon with roasted pieces of potato around it. No veggies. Luckily I had ordered the apple salad which was delicious and light. We heard so many good things about this place it was Very disappointing! We don’t even want to come back. It was a gorgeous restaurant and the ambiance was relaxing and so nice, but I am a foodie and was So very disappointed. My husband said his food was blah. And portion for price was 3 to 1. We understand times are tough and if the dishes were good, we wouldn’t mind paying what we
Paid.

Food and drinks were amazing! Food was cold but did not want to complain. Server just seemed bothered to be checking on food and we were only 1 of 3 couples there since it was early. Ambiance was great. That was the only issue.

We had a party of 6 at 5pm. The Ambiance was just perfect for the Christmas season. The food was prepared as expected....the beef on three of our party's dishes were so tender and prepared to our preference. Its a little pricey so the value is slightly off in my opinion...but nevertheless you won't mind paying the amount. The only complaint I have would be the men's bathroom and i would give that bathroom 3 stars.

L Night out with friends. Experience was wonderful. We asked them to make us their tempura green beans which is no longer on the menu. They are by far the best ever. Everything else was wonderful as well. Highly recommend

First time here. Slipped to the bar for a pre-dinner drink. $12 for a G&T. They have 4 TV's, I would go back for sports games and belly up to the bar for food & drink. Had a reservation, was sat at a table in the dining area adjacent to the bar. There are other dining areas in the back and a group dining area in the front. The focal point of the interior is def the bar area. Went with the grilled Salmon with mash potatoes and grilled carrots. Was hot, fresh, and tasty. Had a glass of Porterhouse Cab wine ($16). Wine list is small, but some good choices. My partner had the beet salad (added salmon - $27) and a cosmopolitan ($14). Service was attentive. Good ambiance. Could hear entire conversation of couple at bar, super close to our table. A little more spacing with the dining area/seating would be a good idea. Parking is easy. Only negative... Men's restroom smelled like dirty sewer water :( Would go back to explore other menu items. Very nice dinner experience! Thanks DCG!

The food was quite good, but not fantastic. The Caeser salad was very tasty, but the portion was too small for the price (it's just greens and bread) and my steak was overcooked. The ambiance was nice, but service was slow and our waitress did not come by much. Minor negatives aside, I like the place and it's good for a nice meal out.

My only complaint is that the prices on the menu didn’t match my bill. If the restaurant raised prices, that’s fine. However they need to update the menu to reflect it.

Went for a nice dinner with friends, had great food and a great time! Two of us ordered the scallops with butternut squash risotto; I was a bit skeptical but it was fantastic! We also had the lamb shank and the short rib, both were just as wonderful. Highly recommend this restaurant!

A little disappointing. Haven't been here for quite sometime because of covid.
Very accommodating when we asked for a different table.
One cocktail was not up to standards. Food overall was good, not great. Too much vinegar in salad and coleslaw. We would return again.
