Great location; very good to excellent food; and a nice atmosphere make Willow Creek the best in Evergreen. Took a friend from out of town and she enjoyed the salmon. My wife was pleased with the scallops. Duckwings were great. I was a little disappointed with the beet salad; would have preferred crumbles of goat cheese or feta rather than... More

The food is good but it's always the same. Need more variety for kids. I would enjoy more specials and a lower price point

When it comes to this price point, my expectations are quite high. Willow Creek has it right in so many ways. The ambiance and setting are unbelievably nice. On the night we were there, we enjoyed a fireside dinner and although it was dark, we could see the reflection of the moon on the lake. The menu is small but... More

After hiking in Evergreen, we stopped to check out Evergreen Lake and walked over to Willow Creek Restaurant for lunch. The restaurant was quaint and the staff polite and friendly. We asked to be seated outside and enjoyed the gorgeous lake and mountain views while enjoying lunch. The food and the sangria were both very good. The the outdoor seating... More

I was at a business meeting and we had dinner here after a quick walk around the lake, and time watching a large group of elk nearby.

Each year, we close Monday's in the fall & winter and while our voice mail, Facebook page and website all say closed Monday's, individual sites (Google) take longer to change our operational hours. It is not a fair review if you didn't actually eat here, I hope you will adjust your rating as there is potential for that to hurt... More

I use to love willow creek, but i can't even catch the eye of my waiter if I'm at a table inside. The waiter must have been all fo 19 years old with no clue. My husband and I have kept trying to like it, but menu is the same and service is annoying. Maybe they will get it back... More

If you stop by Evergreen you have to go and eat to Willow Creek, brunch is perfect! The wine and beers list a book! The view is amazing if you take a sit outside!

My wife and I sat for over 20 minutes while we saw our neighboring tables being served by the waitress that was supposed to serve us. The fact that we felt invisible was the worst feeling you could ever feel by a business. We got up told the manager and left.

We are so sorry for your experience! We are crazy busy this time of year, add a few new employees and human error happens! I know we offered to have you stay & buy you dinner, you declined! If you change your mind... We are here for you! Once again, my sincerest apology, it is not our norm! More

Went for an arvo drink with friends and the ambience here is perfect. Overlooks the lake and it's definitely recommended if you're in the area. I just spent two weeks in Peru...sad to say the Pisco at this place is far from authentic! Saying that, there is good choice on the wine list.
