excellent beer selection for internationals, fewer microbrews. Very good food. Can be a very pricey evening out, but usually well worth it. I really enjoy the ambiance of the creekhouse too, very nice building.
I would score this place much higher if it wasnít for the below average food. They tried too hard to be trendy and failed. I mean their Mac & Cheese wasnít even as good as Kraft out of the box and I have had better fish & chips at Long John SIlvers. Their prices for food were too expensive as well. They should just concentrate a on a simple traditional pub menu and beer.
Go and spend your money on beer not the food.
Went during happy hour on a Friday. Walked in the door and was seated almost immediately. As I walk by the bar, I see that it is loaded up with at least 40 taps, most of which were Belgians, the others were high end domestics and imports. Along with their impressive draft selection, they had an even better bottle selection. For a person from WV, this place is heaven. I started off with a Piraat and was happy to see that it came in a Piraat tulip glass. My guest ordered a Lindemanís Frambois, and it also came in itís appropriate glass. This place goes above and beyond anything I have ever experienced. The service was a bit slow and the beer was way overpriced, but if you go at happy hour like I did, it isnít all that expensive. I made it out of there with two meals, two pints, and a sampler for under $60. Less than I expected but had I not went at happy hour, the damage would have been a lot greater.
I realized that I havenít updated my review for a few years and a lot has changed since then. They continue to excell at providing the best selection of beers on tap anywhere in the area (particularly Belgiums) but the biggest improvement the past few years has been the food. It has gone to second-rate to first-class. Everything from pizzas to appetizers to sandwiches to entrees to desserts are now fantastic. I have been here on many occasions over the past couple of years and since theyíve changed their menu I canít think of one thing Iíve had to eat that has dissapointed me. Gret beer, great food, great atmosphere. What else can you ask for?
If you love beer youíve got to make to one of the Sharp Edge establishment. Many unique beers on tap or in bottle. The Creekhouse house has more of a unique ambience than the other three so I like it the best.
Fun place... Love the Belgians...prices are steep, would not buy any sixers to go... but this is a great place to go for happy hour... This location isnít as nice as the other locations but is easier to get to for happy hour... a must for people who want to start their evening off right...
hmm...not sure if both of the edges belong on the top 50. id recommend heading to the emporium over this one. Iíll post an edited version of my emporium rating and make some notes at the end..
Beers selection is pretty impressive as far as tapped belgians go...but donít expect many of them to knock you socks off...also the pricing is a bit harsh (the emporium gets more turn around making their a tad more interesting for the locals). Go during the week day happy hour to get half off belgian drafts. Food is also hit or miss...if you splurge it is pretty great, but a little over priced. Service and crowding are less of an issue here (though im partial to my regular servers at the emporium)
