On our second visit to Cedar Creek Inn my husband has a Monte Cristo Sandwich which is not on many restaurant menus. I had an Angus beef hamburger that was huge I had to deconstruct it to eat it. Both items were delicious. While my favorite dessert of Cedar Creek is their coconut cake (mmmm) my husband persuaded me to... More

Great place for a great tasting dinner or if you want to hang around the patio food and drinks are awesome. I would recommend the nachos very good on the happy hour menu. Ask if they have the chile verde chicken soup, it's delicious, but they don't make it every day.

My wife and I have come here from time to time in the past. The menu offers provide a broad selection and the prices are reasonable...not too high but not inexpensive. The service is consistently excellent and the ambience is very nice....not too noisy. A very nice place to dine, dinner or lunch.

We come here on occasion for special meals, and have done so for more than a decade. Service is typically very good here, but that is to be expected, because you're typically dropping $40-$50 per person, give or take, without alcohol. When we come here, we always get the calamari. They do a fabulous job, and it is maybe the... More

This is a wonderful elegant and rustic restaurant to dine in. It has a cozy feel when you step in the restaurant. Service was outstanding. We went there for Sunday brunch for the first time and we were very delighted and impressed at quality and freshness of the food, along with their attentive service. We especially enjoyed their brunch Mimosas... More

This lovely local restaurant serves great prime rib and rib eye steaks. There's a charming patio area for drinks and appetizers, which are quite yummy! The wait staff has always been nice and the atmosphere is relaxed.

The bar is a great place to grab a quick bite and a glass of wine. The live music is great and the happy hour menu has a lot to choose from. Or, if you are celebrating a special day, what a wonderful place to do so, especially on the patio by the fireplace. The food is wonderful and there... More

I was here for a business dinner with other 10 or 15 people. Excellent service (kind and fast), food and wine at very good level (I had some salmon with veggies and some fried calamari). Atmosphere is really impressive (it seems to be in a chalet with wooden roof and furnitures). Average prices and reserved free parking in front of... More

Dropped in for lunch prior to a meeting. I had the Italian Chopped Salad. It was fresh and tasted good. A little on the large side in terms of size. The service was prompt and professional. I recommend going if you are in the area.
