This little place knocks it out of the park!!! Had the chicken salad sandwich and white bean chili. I travel and eat out over 200 days a year from coast to coast and I promise you this place is nothing short of fantastic!!!

I took my wife here for a celebratory drink after closing a land deal. She ordered a fancy coffee, while I ordered tea. It was very good and we will return.

The Creek is a fun place to eat. The food is good. Don't go if you are in a hurry. Each person's order is fixed as they order it and it takes awhile.

Love the ice cream! Girls were very nice behind the counter. Sandwich and soup were fantastic! Hopefully more businesses spring up in downtown Jeff City like this one.

The Creek embodies everything you want in a small town non-chain restaurant. Food is fantastic (including ice cream for dessert if you like), service is friendly, and the place is charming. My daughter got a veggie wrap and I got a club sandwich. Dee-lish!

We were in Jefferson City around lunch time and decided to go to The Creek. I ordered their Club Sandwich and an iced tea. The tea was very flavorful. The sandwich was not the usual double-layer sandwich that made the club famous. It consisted of one layer with ham, turkey, bacon, lettuce and tomato between two slices of toasted bread.... More

We stopped for coffee and ice cream on our drive home from Christmas break. Service and drinks were excellent. If you are in a great hurry, this may not be the place for you as two coffees and three ice cream cones took fifteen to twenty minutes to make!

Stop by here often for a milkshake or sandwich. It is fresh, the staff are great, and it's just a nice spot to relax with some wifi. It is hard to find these types of spots in more rural settings, so this one is worth enjoying!
