Beautiful setting a local creek. Formerly the old Buckhorn Bar and Restaurant, the faire is good and hardy. If you're looking for original Mexican food, you've come to the right place. Tell Derek sent ya!

I understand this restaurant is under new management. Even at that, I could find nothing redeeming about our meals here. The beef in the tacos could have come from a can. It was chewy and tasted old. The flavor was questionable. I ordered pinto beans...More

This used to be a favorite restaurant. As another reviewer commented, it is under new ownership and the menu has changed. It now heavily features Mexican food. On a plus, the salsa and guacamole were made fresh. The entrees were not as good as our...More

Don't look at old reviews. This restaurant has new owners, new hours, new menu. Only the name is the same. The menu is much more limited now. Burgers, Mexican, salads, sandwiches, one chicken dish, and steak. Gone is the wonderful soup and salad bar option....More

This restaurant is temporarily closed due to a death in the family. Our prayers go out to the family and hope that this restaurant will return to make the former owner proud.

Sitting outside in a nice patio and water and fresh air. They make a "killer" bloody mary and breakfast was very good. The service was the best and the staff was very friendly.

Mountain Creek Restaurant is a real find in a tiny city in the Sierra. A creek runs through the dining area, and the tables are set up outdoors on a terraced lot next to the restaurant. It is a relaxing place to enjoy a meal,...More

The Mtn. Creek is located right in the heart of Sierra City. There isn't a lot of choices for dining...Sierra City is very small and has only 3 restaurants and, interestingly 4 bars! If you're going on a weekend night expect at least a 20-30...More

There isn't an actual website but the site I gave you gives a little info & has a email address. The restaurant was mentioned in Sunset Magazine in the June 2010 issue in an article about Sierra City. The restaurant seating is outside in a beautiful terraced garden with many beautiful plants & flowers & with a creek running through it.
