We'd stopped by as we we're passing and were very glad we did. The food and the service were exceptional. We have plans to return for another great meal next time we're in the area.

Great place to have dinner. Live music, bartender was flexible with my drink order and nailed it. Food was good though they have a large selection of fried options like most places in the area. We're not fans of fried food but the menu is...More

I have visited Salt Water Creek several times over the last few years. We usually go on Wednesday night when they have a pizza special and steel drums playing on the patio. It is one of my favorite nights out. Very casual, something for everyone...More

Very sorry for some spotty experiences here! As much as we'd love to say we can be perfect, in this industry, it's an impossible thing to do. Especially around the time when kids are going back to school/college and you have to start over some...More

We arrived at Salt Water Creek without reservations but were seated immediately. Our server was prompt, very polite, and professional although she did not tell us if there were any specials (nor did we ask). We both had the duck ($25) which was very tasty...More

Thank you for the great review! We here at SWC try to stay away from a very upscale style of dinning as the atmosphere becomes stuffy. We tend to call ourselves more of a casual to pseudo-fine dinning restaurant :) Hope we see you again...More
