Mondays feature half price burgers. And half price beers and drinks. Service is good and most of the time burgers come out cooked the way they were ordered.

Visited this establishment for the first time on a busy Saturday evening. We were extremely impressed by the menu selection and service. The food was delicious and portions were very generous. Can't wait to go back!!!!

The Grilles was able to accommodate our large group of 14 people on their enclosed porch. Our waitress, Lauren, was very capable and nice. Drinks from the bar were good including their specialty drinks. Food was good but average. I had the steak served with a small scoop of mashed potatoes and a veg; it was cooked correctly- medium rare.... More

Monday is 1/2 price burger nite. Good selection, and 1/2 lb burgers. However, out of 5 couples, only one burger was cooked to specifications. ( and only because last week, she ordered medium well-- and got well, so this time she ordered medium rare-- and got medium well ) Even with over cooking, the food was good. Just a little... More

I was in town visiting relatives and they suggested we eat at a local golf course. I was rather surprised by what I found. Every night of the week they run features, tonight we enjoyed their Prime Rib night. Good value, and the Prime Rib was delicious. It was also really busy, so obviously the locals agree that this is... More

Good variety of salads and sandwiches for lunch and all are generous tasty servings. Have yet to eat all the Reuben. Often share with another person. Dinners are equally of high quality with a diverse selection. Drinks are delicious, and a good selection of beers, tho' that is not their main interest like a brew pub. Service has always been...

We joined the diner club and were there there this past Wednesday and was told no Mexican/Fiesta night even though advertised. Also then there Saturday night after 5pm and was informed we could not use it after 5 pm. Usually very good but disappointed.

A return visit to a restaurant that we often forget is out there. Pleasant surroundings, and a great customer oriented staff. The choice for appetizer was the home made Chirozi Cheese Quesadilla served with sour cream, house prepped guacamole and a hefty house prepped salsa. Delicious and a really significant portion that could easily satisfy 4 people as a shared... More

I have never I repeat never had a bad meal or a bad experience at Back Creek Grille! As residents, we are thrilled to have a fantastic restaurant we can literally walk to. The service has been consistently great (Renee, Helena, Matt) and the chef is gifted in his craft. My mother was here visiting from Long Island and could... More
