The menu is always exciting and delicious. The wait staff is attentive and prompt. We always look forward to dining there.
1st time at The Grille at Back Creek and we went to get dinner with the family. The service was great, the drinks were fast and the food was amazing. Atmosphere was very cozy. We will definitely be back! Our waitresses Renee was on point and friendly!!
Michael Salony has great hair !
Great food and great service! Another great meal at a reasonable price.
Food was very good. Unfortunately we ended up getting there when a golf outing was finishing. Crowded and not enough staff to handle the regular customers. Noisy and then to top it off they had a live guitarist that put the noise beyond the ability to have a conversation. Would definitely go back but on a weeknight when it would quieter. Please no live music.
**update 9/11/21** I've dropped them to three stars (from 4). In the past 1-1/2 years (roughly), they've changed chef and menus. Unfortunately not for the better. For example, they've removed their crab cake entree (which used to be phenomenal). Today, one of our party ordered the fish tacos. They were horribly wet. The plate was awash in some kind of liquid that made the tortillas soggy.Nevertheless, their burgers are still pretty good so I'll give them 3-stars.

Lamb was almost raw even after I ordered well done .. they repeatedly brought me diet tea and soda when I order regular. Creme brûlée top was soft
This was our first time at Grille at Back Creek. On a positive note, the server was amazing, truly a one person show as it appeared he was the only server working. Unfortunately the food lack luster. I ordered a medium well 12 once steak that had no flavor. The sweet potato mash was very bland as well. My wife ordered a burger. The burger was not edible as it was extremely charred. When my wife showed the server, his response was "oh, wow!" A manager came over to apologize and asked if my wife would want something else on the house to make up for the experience. She declined and the manager asked her to reconsider, possibly dessert. My wife agreed to a dessert and the manager said he would put that right in. 10 minutes later and after I paid for the meal, the manager came over to inform us that they no longer had the dessert. We usually give places a second try if we had a sub par experience the first go around but I don't think we will be back, at least not for the food! We may try the range in the future.
The food was excellent and atmosphere great (minus the bugs and gnats which were horrible on their outside patio). Service was a bit slow and our waitress seemed angry. She never came back to ask if we wanted another drink and dessert took close to 30 mins to come out. There were several large parties on the inside deck (all gold members), which noticeably took priority over us.
Great food Great service Clean restaurant. Handicap parking needs to be improved. Golf carts continue to be parked in the handicap spaces and the access lane.
We have been to Back Creek numerous times and usually enjoy our experience. Our experience last night has us questioning whether we would go back again. We know that restaurants are running short and expect longer wait times….we have no issues with that. But the quality of the food should not suffer and last night the food was sub-par at best. The presentation was awful, the steak overcooked, the salmon and accompaniments over-salted. We are hoping it was just a bad night because we rather like going to Back Creek
Always great food, drinks and service at The Grille at Back Creek. Kevin is always on top of his game at the bar and Sierra is one of the best servers in the area.
Dining was made even better by our server Morgan. She was attentive and very customer focused
We just love having this gem in our backyard. Food is excellent. The chef specials on the weekends are always enticing. Great drinks too from Kevin and Craig and always top notch service.
