Best of 2013: Best Eatery, The Creek

by Nicole Watts

If you have not made it in to The Creek yet, you need to add it to your priority list. They were voted the best new eatery in Peoria in 2013. Their Facebook page shows that the users have given them an average of 4.3 stars.

They have great food, a great décor, and live music on the weekends. Their dinner menu has been expanded to include full size entrees in addition to their expanded petite entrée menu (The surf & turf was delicious.) Signature drinks, like bourbon punch and sangria have also been added to the menu. Normally, not a huge sangria fan, theirs was amazing.

The Creek has a lunch menu with salads and sandwiches. They also offer a rotating lunch buffet with daily specials for $7.49.

For Valentine’s Day, The Creek will offer a 5 course dinner for couples.
