Service was good, food was average. Crab cake was extremely salty, not the best.

Great food, great service, great room. My only criticism, and the reason for 4 stars and not 5, was the noise level. The music was way too loud, and greatly interfered with 4 of us, sitting at a booth, being able to have a conversation.

Tried Cedar Creek for the first time and was totally dissatisfied. The oysters and salmon were inedible. The service-was good but the waiter John had the entire dining room and was running like crazy. The cavatelli bolognese was great as well as the filet mignon and sole special. The better hire a real chef. Never going back.

I was not happy with the quality of food on this visit to Cedar Creek. We have been there many times in the past but was disappointed in the steak.
The service was excellent but would not go back.

Saturday night, restaurant NOT full to capacity, and yet OUT of several dishes. On top of this, server forgot what I ordered and service was very slow. Too long until apps came out and even longer between apps and mains. No way we were going to stay for dessert. Give it a big miss.

Disappointed that seared tuna was not on the menu. It was an excellent dish that is no longer offered. All chicken dishes are excellent but there are not enough fish offerings.

Service was very slow. They put us right in front of the door where it was freezing. The special lobster ravioli was very small for$30. Lastly, we def think they cross contaminated my son's gluten free pasta. He has celiac and ended up throwing profusely that night

Had a reservation, but the table wasn't ready. We went to have a drink at the bar while we waited. Although the bar wasn't slammed, we had to wait a while for the bartender. Martini was served in a wine glass, just as was my scotch. The barrata appetizer was tiny and the pesto had too much garlic but the wedge salad was standard. For entrees, the Mahi was excellent, however the filet mignon was disappointing. Although the temperature was spot on, the meat was about as tasteless as you would get in a cafeteria. The hostess and waitstaff were very good.

We hadn’t eaten at Cedar Creek for about 3 years and after this experience, its with good reason for the hiatus. The service, whilst pleasant and friendly, was so slow. We were 2 adults and 3 children in a relatively quiet restaurant. It took 1 hour and 5 mins to receive the children’s food, from the moment we were seated, despite a request to our server that she should bring their food without delay. When my son’s food arrived, his chicken was raw and bloody. Upon sending it back for obvious health reasons, I was told that the chef tried to hurry up the cooking at my request to feed the children ASAP. I was amazed that a chef would forsake good, sanitary cooking prep, despite taking an hour to cook. The rest of the food was ok at best. I felt put off my the plate of bleeding chicken.

It was our first time dining at this establishment and what a very nice experience we had! Our server Bella was great! She was super friendly. She was there when we needed her and disappeared when we didn’t need her. Delicious food too. I ordered my steak medium rare and it actually came medium rare. Thank you And we will be back!

The food, service and atmosphere is always good at Cedar Creek, no complaints. The noise level from the bar unfortunately was unusually loud and obnoxious. My only suggestion to the kitchen is the portions are small for the price asked. I ordered the fish and chips. For @ $20 I received three finger sized wedges of fried fish (more fried component than fish) and a normal portion of French fries. Although the food was certainly tasty... the portions were not acceptable in my opinion.

Service-fast-efficient-friendly. Entrees & dessert were good. Appetizers- all were on the small size but tasty. However, onion rings (only $6) were a bit silly-3 rings. That portion has to be rethought-make it more money if you have to but 3 medium size rings just looks ridiculous when put on the table.

My daughter visited and I know your food, service, and place is excellent! The only thing that was disappointing was the overly sweet dessert choices from the prefix. Are they delicious, Yes!!! But one choice of a healthier dessert perhaps just fruit would have been great. We do love everything and are never disappointed with quality but I just wanted to share because there may be others that won’t mention it. Thank you for Wonderful food and great staff.

The food was not served the way we ordered it. Most of us ordered rare, our steaks did not come that way. It was also A very short wine list. When we wanted to order a second bottle of the wine we had, there was none available.
