“Great Lunch Place”

Gazebo Creekside Cafe

Restaurant details
Reviewed 31 July 2014

One place that is always packed for lunch is Gazebo cafe. I love, love , love there Turkey Club. The Bread is always fresh with an extra large helping of turkey , crisp bacon, shredded lettuce and fresh tomato. Ask what is the soup of the day. The Italian wedding soup is amazing as is all the other weekly specials. There always friendly and helpful. The only drawback is it is a little out of the way and parking can be at a premium during a busy lunch time. Either get there really early or call you order in to go

We have eaten here many times over the past dozen years. It rarely disappoints. Yesterday we ordered the Muffaletta salads at $6.45 each. No skimping here with quite a bit of meat and ingredients. Very tasty! The sweet tea was typical and average. Everything is served in plastic containers with plastic utensils. Don't expect dishes or anything fancy. It isn't that type of place. Good food with good prices and a pleasant atmosphere is what you will get here. Our server was excellent. You pay up front at the cashier window. We enjoy sitting right by the small creek. In the Spring you might want to sit under one of the umbrellas or elsewhere as insects, etc tend to fall on the tables from the trees. The Summer is fine. Arrive early (11:30) for lunch if you want to park close. The parking here is extremely poor and tight. Door dings are more likely here than anywhere else. If you have a nice car, make the effort to park elsewhere and walk. It's still worth it.

The gazebo has been my go to destination for lunch for years now the French dip makes it well worth the drive over the mountain. Last time we ate there Leela was our waitress and her bubbly personality made the meal for us. The only downside to this restaurant is the fact that flies are almost guranteed to bother you while you eat. Also the key lime pie seems to have taken a dive in quality taking it from being the best piece of pie east of the Mississippi to being just another piece of key lime pie. In conclusion whether its a large family meal or just a short lunch break the gazebo is always a great choice

a relaxing experience, eating outside on the river; however, when weather doesn't allow, eating in gazebo is good, but noisy (due to passing traffic )
