*****50th Birthday SURPRISE!
Recently my husband turned fifty years old, to celebrate this landmark birthday we decided to celebrate by going to Cabela's then enjoy lunch in Cherry Creek, one of our favorite areas. Looking for a special location for lunch I checked review's online and picked 'The Cherry Creek Grill'. What a great pick! Just walking in the door, we were impressed by the ambiance. The staff was welcoming and fun so I shared the information about our special occasion. They helped us select the perfect items assuring memorable occasion.
The food was great, fresh, and really tasty. Honestly, I didn't think anything could be better. Just then, our waitress came back to the table and said, "Happy Birthday lunch is on us"! This was so unexpected, I actually started to tear up. The waitress, Robin, looked over at me and said "please don't cry, you'll make me cry", so I jumped up and gave her a hug while thanking her prolifically.
We found ourselves walking to the vehicle in a daze talking only about the unique event. I was so stunned, that I completely forgot to tip them, and had run back. LOL!
Great time, great food, and a great surprise, the Cherry Creek Grill really delivers!
Always a huge wait to get in regardless of whether or not you have reservations. Overpriced food that just isn't very good. I've given place chance after chance but after ordering tri-tip "steak" and getting a plate of raw, grissle-filled horse-meat, I will no longer patronize this place. There are several better (and less expensive) options in the Cherry Creek area. My only guess as to how they've survived this long is their location. Service was decent enough which is why I give it 2 stars vs. 1.
Always good – I've been going here for years and have never had a disappointing meal. Of course in the last 10 years, the prices have gone up about 300%
Pros: great food, wonderful staff, pleasant decor
Cons: can get crowded - no reservations - and I can do without all the kids
Good Food – This is really good place to eat with a nice atomosphere. I love their vegie burger, "yummy". I think the only draw back is the slezzy guys there. Men that are to old and need to be home with there wives.
Not bad – Service was slow, but I'm always willing to over look that as it happens. Plus, worth the wait so far..
my favorite – I keep going back over and over. I always get the macho salad even though it's pricy. Nothing like it! I've also gotten a few friends addicted.
Jazz music make me a litter happier than in other restaurants.
Price is a little higher than normal, but it's worth.
Took an Waldorf Salad. I love it.
Bandera style chicken – Cherry Creek Grill was formerly a chain restaurant of Bandera Restaurants. Bandera had THEE BEST rotisserie chicken! Cherry Creek Grill claims Bandera-style chicken on their menu. This is not Bandera chicken. First attempt the food was cold. The second attempt the seasoning was some sort of Tex-Mex flavor and NOT the excellent savory flavor typical of that great Bandera chicken. In addition, it comes with Spanish rice. What a disappointment. I switched to coleslaw which was quite good. My friend also had the chicken but found it too peppery. Bandera served their wonderful corn bread with the chicken dinner. Now you have to pay $5.00 extra for the bread.
The waitress was good and accomodating.
In summary, go directly to Bandera Restaurants for authentic Bandera chicken.....accept no substitutes.
I have had several of the items on the menu, and wanted something new. Mom had the prime rib, I had a ribeye. Our steaks were cooked exactly right, the potatoes were amazing, and nothing was overseasoned. On top of that, the cuts of meat were HUGE! We also shared the duo dip with warm tortilla chips to begin with, very nice appetizer. We never save room for dessert here. A mistake I hope to rectify someday.
