Great stop on Hwy. 290. Nice atmosphere but food was even nicer. Had lunch and ordered Texas Ruben. Wonderful! Wife had salad and soup of the day which was a meal in itself. Red beans and rice. Wait staff was wonderful! Watched wait staff getting tables ready for dinner. Everything was set to exact position and redone if manager did... More

Came on a Sunday after church with a group of 8. Service was wonderful and the menu options were well priced. The food was outstanding and at any other establishment would've been priced sky high. I had the veggie wrap and ate the entire thing, even though it was a large portion. Kids loved their sandwiches as well. Everyone else... More

I don't get it. How in the world is this little place in the middle of nowhere so freaking amazing? I had the wasabi miso glazed Salmon and it was perfection. Understated outer facade, this gem of a restaurant is worth a drive. If I lived in Dripping Springs, I would go every night for a chance to try everything... More

My son booked his rehearsal dinner here and I can see why it ranks so high in the Dripping Springs area. Service and food were both excellent for our party of 36 people. We had the steak medallions and stuffed chicken with mashed potatoes and spinach. The desserts were excellent - Creme brûlée and polo pie with vanilla custard and... More

We hosted a party of seven for lunch. Most chose a burger of some variation, but a couple chose the soup and salad, and one chose the Reuben gluten-free. Service was excellent, but the burgers tasted like they were frozen meat, despite the claims of fresh ground. I'd go back for a second look, but am not a blind fan...even... More

Went to Creek Road with a group of friends to celebrate friendship and triumph over a traumatic accident. The restaurant was fabulous and food did not disappoint. People shared seasonal salads and appetizers including a watermelon salad, as well as a baked avocado salad. For entrees people had pork belly, baked red snapper, and steak. Everyone was happy. The restaurant... More

Stopped in with family and had an absolutely delicious lunch! We all ordered different items and each of us couldn't say enough about our delicious choices!! The waiters seemed a bit confused, but don't let that distract you from an exceptional meal!!

Excellent service. Wonderful food. Great wine and beer selection. Goat cheese appetizer is yummy. Pear and bleu cheese salad is mild and delicious. Truly fine dining in a nice, casual & kid-friendly space.

We decided to try Creek Road Café for my father's birthday dinner and we were pleasantly surprised at the food and service. It was much much better than we expected. The food was simply amazing and creative with top notch service. It was a bit on the pricey side but well worth every cent! We'll be back again soon!

Three of us had lunch on February 24. My date ordered the Founder's BLT. She said it was very tasty. I had the soup of the day along with the crab cakes. As usual the soup was unique and very favorable. The daily soup is one of the reasons why I eat here. Crab cakes are also recommended Service was... More
