Great experience,service and food
We have been there before and really enjoyed it, this time the noise level was overwhelming, the food was very good.
We always have a great experience at Back Creek. The wait staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The Food is always first class, and we see our friends and neighbors too!
Loved everything! Excellent service from Renee as always!!
It was very good, it is just a noisy place but the food is outstanding!
Food was terrific, really enjoyed the music of Matt and James. Very easy to listen to and enjoy, not too loud. Dinner and drinks were excellent.
We had another wonderful meal at Back Creek Grille. Our waiter, Eric, was great- a very polite, knowledgeable young man. It was a pleasure to meet him. We have not had a bad meal yet at Back Creek. Highly recommend!
Dinner was amazing as usual and we had a great waiter. Erik was the best, very personable and checked on us and kept the drinks coming and made sure we had everything we needed.
Excellent food and atmosphere. We were accommodated our special seating request.
We had a great meal and great drinks. Waitress was very kind and very efficient
Best place for great food!
This was our first time here and it was for our wedding anniversary and have to say the crab cake sandwhich was not good at all. The fajitas were good, but my husband didn't eat his meal and didn't want to send it back so it was a little disappointing on the quality of food.
Great food. Very friendly server. Great place for a birthday celebration.
Good food, drinks and service. Seating in the bar makes conversation a bit challenging.
Try to get there early, (before 6pm on Monday) for "Burger Night"! Tends to get LOUD after that!
Sunday night business has picked up with the warmer weather. Reservations are a good idea. The rack of ribs were outstanding - melted off the bone. Kevin, who frequently doubles as the bartender, did a great job as our server - knew what we needed before we asked for it. All-in-all, terrific night out.
The food was terrific but the service was truly awful. From the tine we sat down to the time the food cane out took a full 2 hours! They closed the kitchen 20 mins after our food was served and we arrived at 4:45pm! Never had an experience like it elsewhere and would be very reluctant to return.
Really enjoyed our meals and the service was fantastic.
Always great!!!! 1/2 price burger night is unbeatable.
Great food and friendly attentive service. The Fish and Chips are the best. They are famous for their crab cakes and deservedly so.
The food specials were AMAZING !!! The meatloaf was FANTASTIC !!! Atmosphere was lively, but not too loud where you couldn't talk. Always a GREAT time at The Grille at Back Creek !!!
Another great dinner with friends. Awesome server and great food. Shared appetizers and salad with table. Good menu
Always enjoy having lunch or dinner there. The food is very, very good and it’s a very relaxed setting.
We went for 1/2 price burger night. Typically Back Creek grill has the best burgers around! Great burger for an even better price. Tonight they were a little off. A little over done. We were hungry, so we didn't send them back. We just ate part of them and took the rest to our doggies. (They seemed to love them, so it's all good for me). The service was very good and so were the drinks and sweet potato fries. We will keep going back because they are usually very good!
We would recommend Burger night. But noisy and we were there at 5 p.m.
Food was excellent service was excellent it was very noisy though
Great place to have dinner with friends.
Went to Back Creek Grill for the burger night the burgers are half price and so are the bottled beers. They make a tasty burger and I got a side salad which was delicious. Sometimes it is a little cold in there but overall the atmosphere is decent. The beer selection is good also.
Monday night, Half price burger and bottle beer. We both had a delicious burger and 2 beers each and the bill was only 20 bucks. Seriously Middletown best keep secret!
Wonderful atmosphere and delicious food.
Always great food and service. The deserts are unparalleled.
Valentines Day dinner.
Four of us enjoyed a Valentine's Day Dinner. There were many specials as well as menu items. One of us chose the short ribs and shrimp because of the presentation of it to another table. It was just lovely and our friend said it was delicious as well. I had a perfectly cooked salmon steak on a bed of sauteed spinach. It also had a tampenade that was a nice compliment to the salmon. My husband had the chicken piccata that he said was very tasty and had 2 pieces of chicken. Our other companion ordered the crab cake that he said was OK but not memorable. We shared the chocolate chip cookie and vanilla ice cream, which is always a good choice. The service was very good. Although the restaurant was crowded, we never felt rushed.
Special shout out and thank you to Gary the manager, everything was perfect. A little disappointed with Kevin the bartender and my drink called an old fashion that came out very sweet due to putting way too much cherry juice. Craig the other bartender corrected the mistake and the drink was delicious.Always a good time always good food always excellent service thank you for accommodating us and all of our needs.
The chef always have very good weekly specials. I had the shrimp and chorizo with zucchini noodles. My husband had the fish and chips that reminded us of what we had in England
Had the weekly prime rib special and it was terrific. Paired with reduced price drafts, it’s a great deal.
Tonight was prime rib night and it was cooked perfectly. I’m a rare beef person and so many places over cook prime rib. This one was perfect and the flavor was awesome. The crab cakes that others had were also delicious.
We were upstairs for a special event (Yards dinner) so it was not a great locale. Event, food and service were great. We are very pleased with the quality of the food over the past year in terms of variety, preparation and quality. Service seems to becoming more consistent as well.
Eric is gem! Been awesome to see the progress in the renovation, and that it hasn't effected Chef being able to deliver an awesome meal.
Crab cakes were excellent just as advertised. Very friendly staff and service was great.
