Great dinner. Reasonably priced. bbq and steaks on the grill. They had an outside patio for dinner but we ate inside. Outside would have been nice but it was a little to chilly

We used Salt Creek for my daughters weeding and most importantly the reception. After a zillion back and forth with their event staff, and with their guidance, they put on a terrific "show" that memorable to all who attended. Excellent food (we did appetizer selections by butler service along with some standing appetizer trays at tables). All were excellent. Tops though were the co-ordinators, int this case Helen and Chelsea, and both were on site to have everything go perfectly. Highly recommend this to anyone wanting to have it done without the hassle I certainly could of avoided if just heeded their advice from beginning. But they know how special an event this is and never made it an issue. Always there to help. We'll come back if just to go to their dinner house and give a personal thank you for making it so special.

Has indoor restaurant with deck and a venue on patio for special events.

The Salt Creek Grille offers many Signature Dishes to please the palate! For example, their BBQ Ribs literally fall off the bone. Every night at the Salt Creek Grille has something to offer!

We were in Dana Point for a wedding and needed a restaurant the night before the wedding. Based on Trip Advisor's recommendation, we came here for dinner. Our server, Matthew was extremely friendly, very knowledgeable and recommended the Coffee Encrusted New York Steak. That was the best steak we had in a long time. Will definitely come here again when we are in the area.

Came to dinner with an old friend and his partner. We arrived earlier than our reserved time and the host was very pleasant and welcoming. We were seated right away even though they were busy and it looked like they had an event outside. The server was quickly at our table and took our drink order and apps... we ordered the Saratoga Chips and All American Mule... The chips were addictive and delicious (had to hold myself back from licking the salt off of the liner) and the mules were good, they were strong but not boozy and overpowering. The server stopped by a few times to check up on us and make sure we were set. She took our order (Blue cheese burgers all around... because we were all highly unoriginal) and brought the food out quit quickly. The ambiance in the restaurant was casual and laid back and a really nice place to enjoy dinner with friends and enjoy a good conversation. Overall I would come back again (and try some different menu items)
