We've eaten there a few times. Their kids menu is straight out of a box or freezer bag. Our food was ok but not anything I'd go back for. One time I called in an order for pick up, showed up and they had completely neglected to put the order in. Service, when you get it, is fine. I have... More

I finally stopped in for breakfast and was amazed at the prices. Two of us had full breakfast and coffee for less than 11 bucks! Good breakfast, crispy bacon, and great pancakes. Place looked clean and modern yet with the small town country feel. Wait staff was nice and efficient. But...flies. I think this restaurant needs to invest in a... More

I stop in to Cold Mountain Creek frequently when I am in town visiting my mom. The food is very affordable and have never disappointed. The salad bar selection is great and I am in love with their potato soup. They know how to cook a steak properly as well, which is a necessity for me.

Always love eating here. I think the thing I always get is called the Super Platter. It is country fried steak pieces with sautéed onions covered in country gravy on hashbrowns, two eggs however you want, and choice of pancakes or toast. The pancakes are good size, almost as big as the plate. They have to be brought out on... More

We've been here a couple of times when passing through Emmett, and have found good food and good value. The restaurant is clean, but certainly not fancy. We did notice, as some other reviewers, that service is a little hit & miss. Last visit our server was friendly, prompt and checked back with us a couple of times but then... More

While visiting Emmett we ate at Cold Mountain three times. The food is good, plentiful and moderately priced. Live entertainment on Saturday night in the back room is loud enough to make conversation a challenge in the front dining room. Service can get a little slow when busy but overall a good experience.
