Mashed potatoes were NOT piping hot. Sent them back. Specifically said to bring salad dressing ON THE SIDE. Salad came with dressing already IN it. Waiter did not think to give me a wet nap/wet napkin AS my fingers were sticky from all those delicious ribs. Would have preferred walnuts NOT caramelized but there was NO option. Arrived 5:40pm for... More

Fortunately we made a reservation for dinner on a Saturday night, as it was rather crowded when we arrived. We waited no more than 3 minutes before being led to our table. Our friendly waitress greeted us and gave us time to check out the menu. We were a party of 4 and ordered the calamari and a flat bread... More

Great atmosphere, very lodgy. Wait staff was very friendly and the wine list was a pleasant surprise. Risotto beingets were great. Lobster bisque just ok. Had the bbq chicken salad which was very good. Ordered the chocolate souffle for dessert. The bar area looked really crowded so must host the after work crowd from local businesses.

I went for dinner with a group and I found the place to be welcoming and reasonably priced. All bottle wines happen to be 1/2 off for the night and the wine list is extensive. Also the menu was extensive. I had the tuna stack (highly recommend) with the super salad (huge portion) and salmon (wrapped in cedar). The restaurant... More

Maybe one of the best restaurants for happy hour on a Friday! Excellent happy hour menu and the combination with live music just makes it great. I had great Malbec wine and great burgers! Strongly suggest the burgers and sandwiches for main courses and all the appetizers!

Lovely fireplace, cozy decor. The Steak Tacos were tasty ( avocado and jalapeno "sauce" was perfect.) Goat cheese puff pastry on the pear salad should be an app unto themselves! Would definitely go again.

Ordered the bacon wrapped shrimp and calamari. Both were lukewarm and tasted days old. I think these appetizers were made a few days ago and were sitting under a hot lamp or were heated in the microwave. Absolutely wasted our money. I frequent happy hour in the Princeton/Lawrenceville/Yardley and Hopewell areas and by far this is the worse ever. My... More

We recently had our annual holiday event at Salt Creek Grille for the second year in a row. It is also our last, thanks to our experience here. My team and I arrived early (about 20 minutes) before the event, and we just wanted to peek our heads in the party room, and make sure everything was set to our... More

After a long rehearsal nearby we went here for much needed food and drink. I didn't expect much since it's in a mall like situation but I was very pleasantly surprised. A really handsome looking place (important to me) and very fine service (our server was Heather). The 5 if us were quite hungry and needed some special favors, like... More
