This was our first time at Grille at Back Creek. On a positive note, the server was amazing, truly a one person show as it appeared he was the only server working. Unfortunately the food lack luster. I ordered a medium well 12 once steak that had no flavor. The sweet potato mash was very bland as well. My wife ordered a burger. The burger was not edible as it was extremely charred. When my wife showed the server, his response was "oh, wow!" A manager came over to apologize and asked if my wife would want something else on the house to make up for the experience. She declined and the manager asked her to reconsider, possibly dessert. My wife agreed to a dessert and the manager said he would put that right in. 10 minutes later and after I paid for the meal, the manager came over to inform us that they no longer had the dessert. We usually give places a second try if we had a sub par experience the first go around but I don't think we will be back, at least not for the food! We may try the range in the future.
The food was excellent and atmosphere great (minus the bugs and gnats which were horrible on their outside patio). Service was a bit slow and our waitress seemed angry. She never came back to ask if we wanted another drink and dessert took close to 30 mins to come out. There were several large parties on the inside deck (all gold members), which noticeably took priority over us.
Great food Great service Clean restaurant. Handicap parking needs to be improved. Golf carts continue to be parked in the handicap spaces and the access lane.
We have been to Back Creek numerous times and usually enjoy our experience. Our experience last night has us questioning whether we would go back again. We know that restaurants are running short and expect longer wait times….we have no issues with that. But the quality of the food should not suffer and last night the food was sub-par at best. The presentation was awful, the steak overcooked, the salmon and accompaniments over-salted. We are hoping it was just a bad night because we rather like going to Back Creek
Always great food, drinks and service at The Grille at Back Creek. Kevin is always on top of his game at the bar and Sierra is one of the best servers in the area.
Dining was made even better by our server Morgan. She was attentive and very customer focused
We just love having this gem in our backyard. Food is excellent. The chef specials on the weekends are always enticing. Great drinks too from Kevin and Craig and always top notch service.
Always a nice experience. I enjoyed the 10.5 oz prime rib special which as terrific. We sat outside since the weather was beautiful. Always have friendly, spot-on service. Always a good value for the cost. Probably one of favorites in the area.
Nice atmosphere with an acoustic entertainer. Drinks were fabulous. Salmon salad was delicious. Sirloin ok… Waitress was attentive and fun! Definitely recommend Back Creek.
Great to have Conley and Watson back! Emily and Dylan did a great job at the outside patio!
Nashville chicken is awesome!
Food was overcooked big time. Ahi tuna appetizer was cooked well done which I've never seen before. Burger ordered medium was way overcooked. Wait staff was awesome. I don't know what happened in the kitchen this night, but restaurant wasn't incredibly busy. Haven't been here in a while, but used to be very good food. Not sure what happened this evening.
The food was good, the noise from the bar was unbelievable.
There was a wedding when we arrived and it was beautiful!! I was worried about noise level but it was not as bad as I anticipated. Service was excellent and price was reasonable. It’s definitely a go too place with a huge menu.
This was a terrible experience. No waiter. Took 4x to get a drink order right. No one ever offered to take the food order. Gave up, paid for the beverages, and left. I had invited friends to go to dinner, and the evening was a disaster. I will never go back.
