On Valentine's Day ,my husband and I went to our favorite Restaraunt , Willow Creek. Usually , we make reservations far ahead. We had called way late,( on the 13th, no less!) So I've already said we love this Restaraunt because of the fantastic food and warm, friendly environment and great service. On Valentine's Day they were super busy, people... More

We are locals in the area and I remember watching them build the place believing them not to last a year. Well, they did. We are not a wine couple; but do love a good lunch. The service is OK for a mountain place. Rough for most restaurants. The menu,…….. well is wonderful! The flavors and the selection of fare... More

This was our first visit to Willow Creek. There are lovely views overlooking Evergreen lake. We enjoyed the cockles/mussels to start and entrees were the Rocky Mountain trout & the pesto salmon. All were very good. Service was a little slow but that would be our only issue. Definitely want to return to sample the scallops - it was a... More

Extremely poor service, overpriced. Have tried a number of times thinking each was a fluke, but it was worse each time. Will not go back.

Dear JJ Your feedback is important to us, it truly is appreciated when there is constructive criticism. "Poor Service" is not constructive as it leads one to believe that our staff is not doing their job. We are very proud of our staff at Willow Creek and we are constantly educating & training our front of the house staff. That... More

Restaurants come and go in Evergreen but over the years Willow Creek remains consistent with a high standard of food and service. If you want a menu that focuses on quality dishes rather than gimmicks, along with a great atmosphere, this restaurant has it. It's obvious the owners put a lot of effort into this place with a lot of... More

This restaurant is easy to miss (in a small business strip mall at the bend on the Evergreen Parkway near Evergreen Lake), but a great place for a meal in Evergreen. Exceptional service & a great menu. Reasonably priced with a menu that is updated frequently. Great for a small business meeting or small gathering.

Curtis is the best chef in town! The atmosphere is pretty fancy but don't be fooled! They are as casual as you want to be

I was part of a large group who dined at Willow Creek on New Years Eve. We had a wonderful experience, as we always do at Willow Creek. It was unfortunate that Evergreen cancelled the fireworks this year (or we would have had the best seat in the house), which oddly resulted in some cancellations. That said, there was plenty...

We were invited to join a group at Willow Creek for NYE for their 9:30pm seating which was $180 and included Champagne, an amazing raw bar and endless passed hors d'oeuvres. Some of our group didn't want to pay the $180 so they called to "negotiate" a cheaper rate and WC graciously agreed to reduce our cost per person to... More

I had lunch here with my family. It is a pleasant place with great views. The food was good, but a bit "over engineered" for my taste. I had a cup of soup (which was delicious), and a smoked salmon sandwich. It was good, but I was picturing something closer to a bagel with lox and cream cheese. My daughter... More
