I met friends here and had a very good lunch. Chicken was expertly cooked with a delicate touch of herbs and was accompanied by wild rice and fresh vegetables. This was followed by a mousse tart for dessert and tea. Service was polite and timely,...More

You get what is chosen for the meal. There is NO leeway if someone has dietary restrictions - not even leave off the sauce as the only change with a month notice. No substitutions period! That said, the salad was very disappointing with nothing more...More

A restaurant at a golf course can be mixed, but Poplar Creek Grill is open with plenty of windows and a pretty good lunch menu. It feels great having lunch with friends or for business looking out onto the water, golf course and open space

Had lunch before and after a round of golf. Food is excellent and generous. View and ambient is above average for this type of "grill" A good place for brunch or even a lunch business meeting. Easy in an out parking.

Right on the golf course with ample parking and easy to find. So as a location, it's good. I've eaten here since it opened. In fact, I've eaten here under all its names and ownership since 1985! They do a decent buffet for groups and...More

We attended a golf tournament fundraiser and enjoyed the buffet that was served. The patio provided a great place to unwind after a day on the golf course.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Has anyone ever booked a private party of about 20 people? If so what are the offerings ( buffet, set menu, individual) and the price range. Is there a seperate room or space?

I was a casual visitor to this Golf Club. I have seen private groups enjoying themselves, not for Golf. So it seems the place can be booked for private parties and it has ample amenities for a group of 20 persons.
