Disappointed by very limited dinner menu. I'll wait til COVID subsides before going back. Also, for the price (very expensive), they should offer bread, rolls, etc. Food was good but very expensive for what you got (no extras at all). Very nice ambiance and location.

Warning! Please don’t rely on your reservation! Their hours posted were not reliable. They canceled our reservation as service to self. Or reservation was for 1:45 on a Friday afternoon and the waitress/hostess turned us away on time when there were 4 tables eating in...the patio and patrons being served inside. There were ample tables available Covid friendly and zoned. Never been turned away for a reservation without a legit reason. World traveler for over 20+ years.More

We were staying in Evergreen for Valentines Day and decided to splurge for a lovely meal. We were SO glad we did. Wonderful service by Kristen, and such a delicious meal. Hope to be back soon!

I liked my fish and chips. My sister ordered the soup, which was only warm at best, and cost $10. Ouch. So kind of a mixed review as far as food. The waitress was very nice and attentive.

It is often difficult to select a restaurant for lunch where you feel moderately safe during these COVID times. Willow Creek Restaurant didn't disappoint! We made an 11:30 AM reservation on a Wednesday for the patio. Some tables are under umbrellas while others are in...the bright sun. Be sure to specify your desires! The food was very good and the views of Evergreen Lake are superb! They should have more luncheon items for patrons not wanting meat or fish. Overall a wonderful mid-week lunch.More

We went in on a Sunday afternoon. We were seated right away. After 15 minutes of no one coming to the table we searched for the owner. Who ever she sent to us could care less. We were not told of specials that we overheard...at other tables. After food arrived no one ever checked to see how we were. This is the second time we have had bad service. We will not be back. The food was so so.More

I know Covid has been devastating for everyone, and I have worked in restaurants so I definitely know the challenges of food service, however, when I go to a restaurant, even during Covid, I still expect some level of customer service. Nice place. Beautiful patio...views of the lake. WAY TOO BUSY with WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE. So understaffed, and the staff that was working were SO OVERWHELMED it was ridiculous. Running around like they had never had a busy day ever. We waited over an hour for our to-go food. They forgot my mom’s iced tea. Then the girl forgot to get it and I had to flag her down again. Then they forgot to put silverware in the bag. Truly pathetic. The food was good, and that’s why they get 2 stars. But honestly, even in Covid times, there is no excuse for service this bad.More

We ate here after walking along the lake. It has killer views of the lake! The fried cod is some of the best I have ever had. In addition, their homemade Tatar sauce was so good with the cod and the truffle fries! We started...with their summer sparkling wine spritzer which was refreshing and delicious after the walk. Their lemonade tastes homemade. Overall a pleasurable lunch!More

Willow Creek in Evergreen - if you prefer fine dining at reasonable prices, Willow Creek will become your favorite restaurant too! Michael enhanced our dining experience with his warm smile (radiating from behind a mask), treating us with kind, thoughtful, consideration. Presentation is outstanding! Taste...is too! Shrimp cocktail is uniquely beautifully presented! We chose a scrumptious pasta dish and a delicious salad for dinner. Dessert choices were Creme Brûlée (Best Ever!) and Chocolate Decadence. Michael’s assistant, Sydney, server Luke, and desk staff, Jenny and Val, mirror Michael’s warm welcoming style, patiently answering questions and providing recommendations. Evergreen Lake, surrounded by lush green hillsides, Is Mother Nature’s gift to all, whether dining inside or on the patio. Just a hop, skip, and a jump from Denver. Lovely scenic drive through Morrison or expediently off I-70. Even in the midst of COVID-19, ambience, entrees snd service meet the highest standard! We celebrated our 17th Wedding Anniversary on Sunday, July 28th, and will return soon! Sandy and DaveMore
