We hadn’t had our Monte Cristo sandwiches so long. So we went to celebrate a birthday, too. The food didn’t disappoint. It was so tasty and we really enjoyed our time there. Crystal, our server, was the best!

I had the salmon on baby spinach salad - it was fabulous! My friend doesn’t like fish, so she had the same salad, but substituted chicken. We both really liked our lunch. I plan on going back for dinner and ordering the salmon - it was cooked to perfection!

I'd rate Cedar Creek 5 stars, except for the fact that they charge a surcharge of 3% for using a credit card. This despite a new menu which they could have just raised the prices and done away with the surcharge. It's the principle. Getting close to where I would not recommend CC.

We love Cedar Creek! We spend at least $200 to $400 on special occasion meals!! Our only frustration is the militant style of the restaurant managers. When you come in to enjoy a a full meal, take very good care of your servers , add add contribute to a great local clientele, you don’t need to be told at the outset that you are on a time limit and then monitored during the meal. We never overstay. A bit more polish for the manager would make for a true five star experience! We love the food, the servers, and the ambiance!

Everything was very good except the service was very slow with hardly anyone in the restaurant. We asked for butter for the mashed potatoes and he never brought it so we went to the kitchen to ask someone for butter. Very disappointed

We had not been to Cedar Creek since March 2020, when Covid hit. Tonight my husband and I both rated food and service a 10. My husband ordered lamb chops, medium rare, which were perfect. Great waitress, great environment from hostess to paying our tab. This is the Cedar Creek before Covid.

We were disappointed this week that despite making a reservation early in the day for dinner, the available outdoor seating was in a parking lot tent. Would like to be able to reserve front patio, outdoor patio or get an alert that the only available seating is in the parking lot. Recommend calling to make reservations until more detail is available through OpenTable.

Always a beautiful dinning area and very good service but the food wasn't the quality we were use to before covid. My prime rib of pork was dry and over cooked but the sauce and pears it was served with were a nice touch. They said it came with a sweet potato but it was really a yam, I guess most people wouldn't know the difference but they should call a yam a yam. Prices have gone up as with most places but I didn't think the meal was worth the cost.

Wonderful evening spent with my husband and son. We enjoyed appetizers to dessert. Food was excellent as was the service. We ate outside on the patio and you could hear the-live jazz music indoors. Great background music to accompany our meal. Lovely evening.

Charges 3% for credit card processing fee. It is not mentioned anywhere in the restaurant or on its website. The manager claims it is mentioned on the menu, but it is not. Diners beware of this stupid charge.
