Ambiance entering the restaurant was quite attractive. Very relaxed atmosphere with conversation of daily business drifted from around the room. Rustic decor in memoir of the original restaurant that opened 1976 at Lake Arrowhead. Parking was easy and no too difficult to find. Location suited for business or occasional formal dinners if you?re in the area, but not a Friday night place if you are looking for a little scenery after you finish your meal. Surprisingly the meatloaf was the talk among many of the attendees; however I selected the Chicken Papaya which was excellent. Chicken served on a bed of papaya with hints on curry and garnished with delectable fruits. Tasty! Service was so so, they were quite busy and very rigid on the meal selection and didn?t allow us to make substitutions, which we all thought was odd. In all it was a very pleasant and enjoyable meal. Definitely recommend.
Nice ambience, good food, excellent service!.
Very romantic environment, so if you're looking for a quiet upscale restaurant in Brea, look no further! They have a huge outdoor patio too complete with a fireplace and heating lamps. I love the location of the restaurant, it's right off the freeway and tucked away on a hill next to Outback Steakhouse. The food and service are excellent and the prices are decent for this kind of restaurant!
I went into Cedar Creek Inn last week and had a wonderful server, Kimberly M. I had no idea what I was in the mood for since I wasn't particularly very hungry. She was very helpful with her wonderful suggestions and we ended up having the best experience. She was so nice and upbeat I will defiantly request her next time!!
Just like dining in a lodge.
What fantastic ambience. There are several fireplaces and the kitchen is open to the dining room. If the weather is nice, try a table outdoors.
The food...well it's great! You must try the garlic cheese bread - it's about the best I've ever had. The hamburger is incredible, the angel hair with goat cheese & tomato is superb, and the salads are great as well. I've never tried the seafood, but it looks great coming out of the kitchen. The only thing I recommend staying away from is the Beef Short Ribs - they are mostly fat and very tough.
Service is generally very acceptable, although not stellar. I've never had bad service.
Decent wine selection, and is priced reasonably considering the price point of the restaurant. With a moderately priced bottle of wine, salad, and entree for 2, expect to pay anywhere from $70 - $100, tip not included.
a nice surprise.
If you're looking for an upscale restaurant in the area, Cedar Creek Inn is it. This is a restaurant where I'd feel safe enough to order anything from the menu because everything I've tried there has been excellent so far. There's also a nice bar and a patio for outdoor dining.
