Well I tried it tonight for my first time nice and clean! Great waitress! Ordered a fillet but they was out no big deal so I ordered a rack of ribs $18.99 and I do have to say they were the worst ribs I have ever had in my life. I did tell them but no one seem to care so I payed my $50.00 for a family of four 2 adults and two childred and will never try it again. They did ask me if I wanted a to go box but I love my dog more than that.

Why do people assume they know what is going on when they do not know the people involved?

I went,curious, already serving liquor, and think that was the Amy Jeffers working, think she was caught for drugs and served some time, and still on probation, and don't think she can be workin in a place selling acholic beverages and be on probation. Food fair, parking a bitch,no lights, will have to wait till tomorrow to see if car got bumped. If it makes it, they should have thought about another location. Need good country food resturant,
Umm maybe amy was involved w drugs in the past but its exactly that the PAST....if she's wolrking she probally got her life together..u ppl r so negative get alife and get over other people

Uhhhh okay this is making NO SENSE. Because you saw one waitress steal from another waitress you are not going back? Be sure and tell "Jim" cause I bet he won't go back either since it was his tip that got stolen.... OMG how silly can one person get.

Ate there and it was excellent. Great service and great food. This town is full of haters. Don't matter what it is, who it is or the subject. I can't believe I'm on this site. Guess I'm just sick of haters.

We ate there for lunch. No Steaks being served until four. We were there @ 1:00, soup wasn't ready. The burgers were good,but really its hard to mess up a burger. Reasonably priced. My kid ordered a hotdog and they said they were out of them.Hope they do good but they have a ways to go. Every new business has to work out little things but alot of times they will not listen to the customers when we are the ones that matter. I just hope they don't do like alot of places that have good food from the get go and then get cheap and start ordering lower quality stuff for more of a profit. GOOD LUCK GUYS!

I think the name should be Red Dirt or Inside Corner or anything else other than Big Creek, it would just seem more logical.

First visit to the Big Creek Farms Grill/Butcher Shop/Bakery on 66 last night with my wife and hard-to-please, elderly father-in-law.

Got there early, just a tad after 4PM, but there were already a handful of tables occupied. The servers were organizing one another for the night. Seated within 3 minutes from walking in. Noticed the place was clean, tidy, nothing too fancy, but nothing messy or dirty.

Servers were polite, informed us of the nightly specials (t-bone and porterhouse). Had to ask server about soup of the day. Father-in-law wanted the country fried steak and my wife and I ordered the black and bleu tenderloin (one medium well and one medium), along with the baked potatoes and salad.

Coffee and unsweetened tea were the drinks of the night and arrived before any of the food. Both wife and father-in-law commented that the coffee was very good and that was a good sign of things to come. Wife commented on the meat preparation that we could see from our table, sounds of hamburger being freshly ground and steaks being cut as they're ordered.

Dinner rolls came out, didn't appear to be homemade. Although they were tasty, they were a little small and I was surprised that the bakery wouldn't be supplying homemade rolls to the steakhouse (so to speak). Don't get me wrong, the rolls were fine and tasted fresh...just surprised me that they appeared to be the heat-n-serve restaurant variety. Plenty of butter on the table for the bread.

Salads came and they were fresh, crisp, tasty. Portion size of the salad was a little smallish, but again not enough to scare anyone away. Dressings were above average. My wife had the honey mustard and I had the ranch. The portion size of the dressing would have accommodated a far larger salad, so if the salad size is going to remain small the owner may want to consider shrinking the dressing portions (just a cost saver there).

Main courses arrived. Large portion of country-fried steak accompanied by mashed garlic potatoes and green beans. Father-in-law, who isn't shy about complaining, was very pleased with the country-fried steak and gravy. Boasted that the country fried steak may have been one of the best he's ever had, and the gravy was better than any he had tasted in years. Commented that he could have made a meal on the gravy alone, big win on that one.

Black-n-bleu steaks were hot, tender, and cooked to order, very ample portion size, good helping of chunky bleu cheese melted just enough to blend with the steak's natural juices on top. Baked potatoes were not oversized, just a good fit with the steak portion, served hot and done just enough so that they didn't lose any taste to overcooking. Again, butter and sour cream in satisfactory portions to mix with the potato. Steak was flavorful, juicy, and filling.

Bottom line, everyone walked away saying it was a good meal. We spoke to one of the owners who was working the register. Wished her good luck and told her we would be back. Almost all tables were occupied when we left. Departed the restaurant and saw the parking challenges that others have talked about. We left around 5:30 and the parking lot was near full. Can't see that being an overall deterrent to the business. Heck if someone can walk a quarter of a mile or more for Wal-Mart's "excellent quality" products and fantastic service, they'll walk a hundred yards for a better-than-average steak.

Overall grade: B (recommend that you give it a try)

Interesting. First I have known the owners long before they opened. So, I can without hesitation say that your assumption is incorrect. I also will say that if the staff has had any legal issues in the past, that is exactly what the owners see.. it is in the past and they feel EVERYONE has a right to be given the chance to turn their lives around. It is amazing the number of people that post very rude, crude, and slanderous statements, yet have no idea of what these ladies and men have going on in their lives today. The parking is being resolved (builders issue, NOT owners) and the smoke issue is all cleared up (AGAIN was a builders issue, NOT owners) Food is great, plentiful, and service is good. Yes, some growing pains, but owners are quick to correct anything they can and move on. My wife and I (and other friends) have eaten there on many occasions.. I post this with MY NAME! not hiding behind some alias!!!

We were seated promptly. We sat there 50 minutes before we were served our food. It was two hours before closing time. They were out of baked potatoes, mashed potatoes, and out of rolls. Our salad was served to us last. One good thing, our steak and ribs were pretty good. The server told us they had been slammed, and that the owner had let a few servers go home right before that. The only other thing, that was noticed when we paid, was the meat scraps and water in the floor at the butcher's part up front. Very unappetizing. Will probably go back, hoping they have improved and are more prepared on food availability, and organization. Maybe just a bad night for them.
