We go here once in a while when we are visiting her family in the area. Usually we have a good experience here even though many have told us it has gone downhill and not to go. We were seated and waited at least 15 minutes before anyone came over to table to Take our order for drinks. We ordered wine. Ten minutes later it came and was not cold. We ordered our food and requested a glass of ice to chill the wine. The appetizer came and still no ice. Finally got our ice. The calamari was decent, not great. The salads ok and dressings were good. We ordered two chicken dishes and two fish dishes. They all came with mashed potatoes and snap peas - no choice of potato. Not one of the dishes had any flavor whatsoever. The monk fish was like rubber, the other fish had no taste at all. Squeezed a dish full of lemons on it and it still was bland. Both chicken dishes were flavorless. I don't know if they changed the chef or what happened. i know it sometimes happens a dish may not be seasoned properly, but, all four dishes being flavorless is sad. The snow peas were bland. Only thing that had flavor on all four of our plates was the mashed potatoes! We will not go back. Before we went a couple of people told us that they had bad experiences there lately but we decided to go anyway. Will usually have good food at the times we have gone. Sorry to say that we don't want to go through this experience again having four meals and none of them tasted good. Also the service was not good. Another thing was the table tops are painted. Our table was all scratched up because of the paint which is OK and understandable But they should've at least put down placemats or tablecloth or pieces of paper. I wouldn't rest my fork on the table. It looked dirty.

We went to Creek Side with some friends the other night and really enjoyed it . Lots of "regulars" kind of place but made us new faces feel right at home . Good food and drinks reasonably priced and a friendly staff make us want to be some of the "regulars"

Great clam chowder and grilled chicken salad. Wonderful weather made the meal outside very relaxing.

Good service, great food, and cold beer on tap, along the Catskill Creek. I recommend the seafood platter with stuffed shrimp, scallops, fish, garlic mashed potatoes, veggie, an a green salad for $20.00. Cannot beat it! Love his steaks too!

Arrived at 6 pm Friday evening. Restaurant was not crowded, although the bar was lively. Our order was taken promptly; but it took a long time to get the food; and when my tenderloin arrived, it was not rare but medium well, with a hard black burned section. Meanwhile, the bar became unbearably loud; the doors between bar and dining room were wide open, and people were shouting and screaming. Server apologized for my charred steak and length of time for it to arrive; and reduced our bill. Still, not sure I'll return; if they can't do better than this early on a Friday evening, I doubt they ever can.

Salad was fresh, dressing home-made. And water view was nice, but obscured by spillover from the bar, people outside drinking, smoking, and screaming.
