The Salt Creek Grill is tight on the corner of PCH and Crown Valley. They have a excellent menu, with a wide selection. The menu has salads, sandwichs, chicken , seafood, ribs (yum yum), steaks and other choices. Comfortable setting, and even have an outdoor heated Patio for cooler weather with a big fire place pit.Good for couples or family. casual dress.

Went their mid week for dinner. Place is very dark on the inside - bar dominates one side of the restaurant the other side is stuffed with dark booths - very reminiscent of a Dennys. Typical bar type food - attempts to make it sound interesting with Daily Specials (i.e. Chilean Sea Bass - US$ 44 - which they conveniently do not mention) Everything seems to be served on mashed potatoes. They have an out side seating area which is right on PCH - so loud and smelly. In all just typical Dana Point hype, over rated - mediocre!!

I do not mind spending good money on good food but it won't happen here. Menu and food were marginal and uninspiring for the price. Just average with above average price.

I wasn't super hungry, so I got a house salad (which ended up being quite large) with shrimp on it. Our family got the Creek Burger, the Cheese Burger and the kids' chicken strip meal. All of us liked our entrees, the service was very prompt and professional and the ambiance was very nice. The only critique I have was that the warm French loaf had a LOT of garlic and so did the fries.

Wow the bar is hopping here! Great live music most nights and weekends. The wine selection was outstanding and wait staff knowledgeable. Food simply is over the top ! Worth every penny but certainly not cheap. Love the outside patio and seating areas. Lots of choices depending on your reason for visiting.
