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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
