Went this Sat night to Bittercreek. Got there around 8pm and the place was packed. We ordered drinks, a couple of desserts and one order of chicken wings. It took about 1 to 1 1/2 hour to get the desserts, and we had to remind the waitstaff because he forgot the chicken wings. Also ordered coffee and that came out... More

Great downtown bar/pub with indoor and patio seating. Lots of beer on tap with lunch menu of soups, salads, sandwiches and burgers. French fries seemed a little different from previous times and not quite as good. Burgers and soups were great. Staff attentive and service swift.

We did a customer / partner meeting in the BitterCreek Alehouse basement. Dedicated staff, our own bar and bartender for the event. There is also a private room, so that you can step in to this with a client for a private conversation. The food they provided was very good... All the good things, polenta fries, many kinds of Cheese,... More

A friend recommended this restaurant to us. As soon as we walked in the door we were warmly greeted. The place was very busy but they seated us right away (only 2 of us). Our server was AWESOME! So nice and attentive. We shared the Cobb salad and the sausage flat bread pizza. Both were excellent and more than enough... More

The cob salad is one of the best I've ever had. The sandwiches and other food is all good too. There is also a large selection of local and regional micro-brews on tap. It's a great place for a relaxing meal in a nice local setting.

I love brunch at Bittercreek. They have dishes that are not the normal breakfast fare and they are awesome. Service is good too! They offer carafes of mimosa's, but they are a little weak on the champagne, we thought about ordering an additional glass of champagne to add to the carafe. I love the beignets and breakfast pizza, my husband... More

Fresh from the farm locally raised to your plate. Selection of local beer was great. Service was outstanding. Hand cut fries were the best.

Ducked into Bittercreek during a snowstorm for a beer and bowl of soup. Great selection of local beers. We chose simple lunch combo of soup and salad off of an extensive menu. Great value.

Had lunch. One of us ordered the fish tacos and I ordered the pesto chicken sandwich. My sandwich was outstanding. Had handcuffs fries on the side which were great. Beer selection is top notch with plenty of local and regional brews. Restaurant does a lot of local and organic sourcing and even composts in their basement which we learned from... More
