    My wife and I visited The Creag for dinner one night on our anniversary trip. The cocktails were great, the views were unbelievable, and the food was good. We had a better tasting and cheaper dinner at the Elevation Bistro the night before. Nonetheless, this is a unique location and is worth the drive just for the views.

    We really enjoyed dinner last night at The Creag. This is a beautiful venue inside a mountainside subdivision/golf resort. The restaurant, housed in the clubhouse, is lovely and has AMAZING views from the patio; ask to be seated near a window! Dinner was, on the whole, quite good. Appetizers -- pimiento cheese hush puppies. scallops. beets tartare -- were all excellent. My husband's striped bass was beautifully prepared and my venison was quite good. The rub was quite strong on the venison, but that's to be expected and once you got past it, it was delicious and perfectly prepared. Carrot cake was moist and tasty. The only disappointment was the caesar salad; no dressing, little parmesan; we wondered if someone forgot to finish making it. Service was fine: pleasant, attentive, and our server Alexander was *quite* knowledgeable about wine pairings for the meal. Thank you! On the whole, The Creag is a big-city restaurant tucked into the hillsides of North Georgia. Well worth the drive. We look forward to next time!

    Alexander was superb in his service and wine knowledge. He helped make the dinner enjoyable. It was good to see the Chef had added a dinner special to the menu, but we had our old stand-by, the pork chop. We were disappointed that the chop size has gotten considerably smaller and it was not seasoned as well as in the past.

    Great destination dinner About an hour outside of Chattanooga. Great views, food and service. We had the venison and brined pork chop. The bar is great as well. We are Manhattan lovers and they use Antica formula sweet vermouth, which is our favorite. Prices are very reasonable. In 2024 they will have a Hilton Curio hotel on the property and, from what I understand, hotel guests will be able to play the two (one is being developed) golf courses. Very nice experience for a special occasion.

    Spectacular setting. Sophisticated menu, just limited. Everything we had for dinner was outstanding. The flavors were perfect. The menu just extremely limited and portions skew very small. Beautiful bar - but very few noshes for just a bar experience. One-of-A-kind experience that is exceptional. The only recommendation I would have is to expand menu options ….. The Woodlands Grill at Barnsley might be something to explore. They serve a sophisticated palate, but provide more options.

    Delightful dinner, excellent service (attentive but not rushed), delicious food, beautiful views and vistas, and an after dinner drink around a firepit as the sun set. Megan our server was excellent and Victor was wonderful making sure we were comfortable. We were celebrating our 33rd Wedding Anniversary. We will be returning and hope to bring guests with us! Thank you to The Creag at McLemore!

    Easter brunch. They happen to have my wife's favorite , Crab Eggs Benedict and I had Brown sugar cured Ham with sweet potatoes and roasted pumpkin seed. My wife said it was the best version she had ever had. The crab was fresh and sweet . Eggs poached perfect. On a grilled English muffin with hollandaise sauce. She ask for extra hollandaise and they made some fresh for her. My ham was some of the best I'd had and my grandmother and Aunts and the ladies at church make some good ham. Sweet potatoes were grilled . The portions were what you should have. Thought I could have eaten my weight in ham. Service attentive and friendly they go out of their way to make your time there present and enjoyable

    The Creag dining and bar area are beautiful, as is the view. We went for Easter brunch and had hoped for better menu choices, but the food we had was fine, just nothing special. Mimosas were very good, made with fresh-squeezed juice. No problems with service.

    We both had the filet and it was outstanding; tender and cooked to perfection! Savannah gave us her usual outstanding service… friendly, attentive but not hovering. Only “negative” is kitchen timing… steaks were brought by another waiter before we had finished our salads… seems to be a reoccurring issue. Otherwise, another good evening! And, can’t beat the mountain view on a beautiful evening!!

    Highly recommend The Creag! We had excellent service from Morgan and each menu item was delicious. We had a bottle of wine, a cocktail, salad, filet, fish and the apple pie dessert. We also met several staff members who were fantastic! We were visiting from out of town and staying in an AirBNB in Rising Fawn which was about a 15-minute drive; much easier than heading into Chattanooga. The vibe of this restaurant was also dim, romantic, quiet, somewhat upscale although we were super casual because we only had outdoor wear with us for this last minute stop which was okay too. Two thumbs up all the way!

    This restaurant is ALL about the view. The food was okay, but very limited. It feels like The Creag is still trying to find their "footing" in determining "who" they're patrons will be.
