The Paint Creek Tavern used to be a dive and they've come up a little from that however they are out of so many choices and their selection is very limited. The service is very poor and we still go back because of the outside dining and the view of the Paint Creek.

This is a Tavern on Paint Creek, a small lovely creek that runs through town. On a sunny day, you can sit outside by the water and next to the Paint Creek trail that is great for a bike rise or walk - you can go for miles and then stop by here for a refreshing beer and lunch or dinner. It is basic food made well. The staff is helpful and knows their beer.

There were 10 of us attending your restaurant to celebrated the engagement of my nephew. Basically we were the only people in the restaurant. The service was slow. We ordered appetizers, which we never got because the service was slow, and the pizza my niece ordered was wrong because you were out of an ingredient. We understand that things happen but to bring the wrong food and or not at all should have been our decision not the waiter or cook. In fairness we didn't pay of the appetizers but again it should of been our choice.

We ask for the bill to be split 3-ways on three credit cards which the waiter had no problem with. It's now Tuesday and I still have a pending card for the entire amount on my credit card.

Perhaps this is why business is not so good.

It's unfortunate because most of the food was pretty good.

We still tip the waiter a fair amount because he was working very hard but there sure wasn't a lot of support for him.

This place was booming once and it is sad to see it sinking deeper and deeper due to poor management. We often go to this hole in the wall bar because we hope "maybe this time will be different" - it has so much potential. They have many taps of great beer, and at one point the food was good too. It is usually run by one or two people and often there is someone not showing up to work. On days when staff calls in, it does not appear that management is concerned or is invested in the business. The customers suffer as they watch one overwhelmed new employee have to run the whole show. This place would be greatly helped with consistent management presence. Also it still could use a good bath.. Especially the taps.
