Amazing Wine, Salads, and Wagyu Beef Burger! The fried that accompanied the burger were sub par though.

Birthday celebration with a friend. All was very delicious. Nice touch is the little paper bag at each seating for your mask! Only slightly negative was the amount of wine in the tasting. I know it’s a tasting but literally 2 sips and it’s gone...

First dining out after over a year of COVID caution. Our favorite brunch spot was the way to begin returning to normal.

Went here for our anniversary, upon arrival they gave us an anniversary card along with complimentary glass of champagne. There was a non-alcoholic option as well. Food was great!

The food is better at the average household than at this restaurant. The chicken wasn’t edible, the amount of salt was overwhelming. The bread was terrible, same goes for the butter and the salad.

Arrived for lunch--sign on door that one of their employees had COVID. Had paid to park & prepared for lunch--didn't happen! Would have helped if it was posted on their website or we had been contacted.

Food potions (pork belly) for the sides could be more ample. One guest was left without entree while others were almost finished.

We’d heard so many great things about this place but while we wanted to love it so much, perhaps to have the same shared experience as our friends, we thought the food was not on the same level as say, the Tasting Room. The Mac & Cheese was a standout, as was the sauce for the fried-green tomatoes.

Sitting outside by the canal on a beautiful day, was a treat. The food was good, as was the service. I haven't been inside, but I would go back again to sit outside.

Their Wagyu burger is AMAZING—definitely one of the reason why we continue to go back. New cocktail menu as well—try Leaves of Grass and Time in a Bottle...you won’t be disappointed!

I ordered the mushroom and goat cheese strudel with spring salad and it was delicious! Everyone in our group loved their meal and the outside ambiance was really beautiful for a clear spring day. We also had friendly, thoughtful service.

Girls night out and it was enjoyable. I was very impressed with the service at this restaurant. The entire staff was welcoming and very attentive. I definitely enjoyed the food; the vegetarian entree was delicious. The other two entrees were very good as well. There was not anything to complain about or to be corrected. Thank You for a pleasant experience.

Food was excellent. Filet mignon was tender and the compound butter on top was amazing. Not a lot of atmosphere but there was ample outdoor seating which was nice.

Table was outside along the creek. Very relaxing. Tables were far apart and staff all wore masks. Duck sandwiches were superb and the Jailbreak IPA was excellent. The Wine Kitchen by the Creek has it all -- tasty menu and bar offerings, courteous service, and a really pleasant atmosphere.

This was our first time out to dinner in a year due to Covid. We absolutely loved The Wine Kitchen. The service, drinks, and food were all outstanding. I gave a 4 for food because the dinner entres were a little limited. There wasn't enough of a selection. Perhaps add two more choices. The drink menu was superb across the board. We will go there again and again.
