Stopped here for a Sunday supper after driving on the Pacific Coast Highway. The hostess immediately seated us. Our server Blair came soon to take our order. The restaurant was quiet and clean. We ordered Spinach salads with fried chicken which were excellent.

As a last minute decision to eat out, Salt Creek Grille happened to come to mind. I tried the restaurant a few years back and it seemed like a good option to revisit.

We had a private party with about 20 people. We ordered off the menu and the food was fabulous and they did an excellent job in getting it all served in a timely manner.

Good food but in the weekend for dinner it is really loud - not the place for a conversation - at least one that you want to hear!

Three of us are lunch here, it was our first visit to this establishment. We were highly pleased with the quality of our meal. Staff were very professional and friendly. I only wish we had this same thing near where we live.
