Very dirty. Filter in dishwasher needs to be changed as all glassware had grit on them. Food on floor. Overall gross.
Very loud.

We dined here for Valentine's Day and, because of our early evening reservation had our option to select our dinner from the regular menu or the special Valentine's Day menu. We opted for the regular menu choices only because the Valentine menu entrees would have taken longer to serve since technically they weren't available till 5 pm. And, we had another appointment that evening which is why we chose to dine early.
All that said, we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. I chose the Gaucho Steak which is served on a bed of sauted spinach and smashed garlic potatoes. The steak is skirt steak which I always enjoy and rarely find on a menu so I was very pleased to find it here. It was fabulously tender and flavorful. The spinach was a terrific vegetable pairing well with the steak and smashed garlic potatoes. I tried a glass of the house Merlot and it was quite good as well. I also ordered the small garden salad which is huge, fresh and crispy.
My date chose the small Caesar salad and commented how good it was. For his entree he chose the BBQ Mac & Cheese which seems odd to order for a special dinner celebration but he saw it on the menu and was very glad he ordered it. The smoked brisket was mouthwatering and the Mac and Cheese very tasty . We topped off our dinner with the most creamy Creme Brulee and coffee.
The Grille at Back Creek never disappoints us. The food is outstanding. We'll be back soon.

We eat here 2-3 times/month, often on Fridays at the bar. Crab cakes are very good here, as are steaks and burgers. They also have some non-traditional fare which are very good as well.

Valentine’s Day dinner, just a bit noisy for a quiet evening with my wife.

Came for guys night out consisting of burgers and beers. Food was outstanding. Very nice place. Got very loud especially once the live music started so our conversation was limited.

Service was great on Saturday, we had the best waitress. Reservation was at 6:45 and did not get seated until 7:15. They were busy, I now know not to make a reservation during this busy time on a Saturday evening. Food was delicious!
