Great experience! Can’t wait to do again! Service was impeccable and loved dining outside.
The service is pretty slow on Saturday brunch around 12 noon. At least 2 other tables seated after us - one with 2 ppl, the other with 6 ppl, got their food before us. We ordered before one of them got in. Was told by the wait staff they have a card & truffles to celebrate anniversary of my in-laws. Our waitres came right when we're seated and asked who are celebrating. It's supposed to be a surprise. No mention of cards nor truffles. My in-laws took the time to download venmo to pay with 'cash' as recommended but was quickly told to use card before he finish explaining he's good intent. I wasn't particularly happy our waiter. Other than that, the food is good but choices for brunch is limited. No sides of toast with your brunch either. I'd however recommend this place, hoping you'll have better experience.
All was perfect except social distancing forced us in between 2 curtains
Love this restaurant! Views are amazing and staff is always to pleasant and accommodating. Felt completely safe eating there with all their procedures in place.
We love this place; good food and of course the setting is special, the menu is a bit limited, but everything I have had has been excellent
The setting next to Evergreen Lake is very tranquil. Food and drink was very good, and the wait staff really know their role. They are helpful and friendly, but not overbearing.
They were really busy but the food and service was excellent.
We had mentioned it was our anniversary and the extra thought and attention we received made us feel very special! They even brought us some house made chocolate truffles and a handwritten card congratulating us. That patio, the wine list...We will definitely be back.
Great Service, food and ambiance. A nice romantic place for a special occasion or to just have a great night out for dinner and cocktails.
Wonderful, as always! Delicious, creative food in a spectacular setting.
Great place! make sure you seat on the patio. Service was excellent.
Delicious food. Service started off excellent, but declined. We were going to order coffee and dessert but declined based on how long it took our server to bring a to go box.
Manager and hostesses not wearing masks correctly (noses out). Something to consider during this pandemic. Our server was excellent but seemed stretched thin.
Everything was great. The staff, food and the owner (Christopher) stopped to ask how dinimg experience was.
5 star for a local mountain restaurant!
Superb wine list and view from patio. A local gem. Menu is not extensive, but everything on it is really, really good. Friendly staff, very helpful.
We celebrated our anniversary here last week. Looking for a great experience in this crazy time with a water view. The ambience was priceless, the view of Evergreen Lake was incredible and the food was wonderful. The waitress was attentive. In short, just what we were looking for. We will be back.
Best location for FAB patio lunch! My friend had never seen humming birds up close ! Lovely -perfectly spaced LOVED the lake view!
We come here often for lunch and dinner. Great team and food. Nice wine list with range of choices. Very nice for special occasions too.
We ordered the salmon and rigatoni dinners. The salmon was delicious and was ready to order a second serving! The rigatoni was very spicy and difficult to enjoy.
This restaurant is one of the most unique dining experiences ever. The atmosphere and charm/decor add only add to the experience. The food is top notch. All of it being unique and so many items made in house. The staff takes complete pride in the restaurant as well. The cleanliness shows that they all care, accompanied with their knowledge of the food and wine.
Truly amazing experience!
This is the first time we have been out to eat in five months. If our waiter wasn’t wearing a mask you wouldn’t know we were in a pandemic. The spacing of the tables was great. The food was amazing and our waiter Kyle was fantastic. Can’t wait to go back. We felt very comfortable
It’s always a beautiful lakeside setting, but unfortunately our Friday night dinner was just “ok.” Even with reservations, we had to wait over a half hour for a table. And while the waitstaff & hostess were kind, they seemed overwhelmed, inexperienced & not in control of the dining room flow or food timing. Several tables had long waits for meals, & 1 group was so over-served alcohol that they became obnoxious to 3 nearby tables. Food quality seemed off too. Finally, we were celebrating a birthday, yet not even an ice cream scoop was offered to celebrate. Hope this was just a fluke of a night.
This restaurant overlooks Evergreen Lake, and has a cozy, eclectic atmosphere, with patio seating. It dies not have a large menu, but what they serve is done really well. The soups shine - we had the cantaloupe soup on a hot day was unbelievably refreshing and delicious. The corn chowder one evening was light also yummy. Risotto was plentiful and creamy. Highly recommend.
Creatively prepared food, great wine list and lovely atmosphere. One of our favorites in Evergreen.
Birthday dinner on vacation. Service and food was outstanding. Recommend sitting on the patio, great view of the lake & golf course.
Thoroughly enjoyed our meal on the beautiful outside deck! Great service, food, and scenery. Will definitely go back to eat!
Amazing view, amazing service, fantastic food and highly recommend!
We feel so comfortable eating out on the patio during these times. The food is always exceptional and the service from Jade was wonderful.
Excellent service, excellent food, excellent atmosphere. We will be back!
Anniversary meal. Great service and food.
Very enjoyable experience. Service friendly and efficient.
Food was delicious. It was a little pricey in my opinion for the amount.
Made reservation and requested outside seating. Received the best table on the patio. Had a great waiter, and fabulous food. A bit pricey, but overall terrific.
The Willow Creek is in a beautiful setting, on Bear Lake in Evergreen, Colorado. The Brunch menu is limited to a few breakfast and a few lunch entrees, but the food is delicious and well presented, and the service is excellent.
Food was yummy. Service was wonderful!
We celebrated a ladies night birthday on the patio for dinner. We all felt safe and noticed that Willow Creek was focused on providing a safe enjoyable dining experience. The drinks, Tuscan Lemon Drops, wear superb as was the Shosito Peppers app, and our delicious and well presented entrees. Beautiful birthday dessert presentation!
Willow Creek Restaurant is right on the beautiful Evergreen Lake. The setting is amazing! We sat out on the patio as the weather was perfect. This was the perfect place to celebrate our 42nd anniversary. The food is just amazing! We had the Nantucket scallops and the roasted salmon. SO GOOD! We chose crime brûlée for dessert but any would have been wonderful! The staff is attentive, the food superb, the ambiance can’t be beat. It’s a must go place!
We celebrated a birthday and enjoyed the experience a great deal. The food was excellent and the wine list was very good while still affordable. The service was wonderful. Couldn’t have asked for a better evening!
