Creekside Dinery

Looking for a unique dining experience? Few people go exploring to find the Creekside Dinery hidden by jasmine and magnolia trees. Open since 1991, they are one of the few restaurants in the area that uses “plank cooking” where steaks, fish and chicken are cooked on inch thick oak planks for woodsy, smoked flavor. Restaurant is closed Mondays and open from 5 p.m. – 10 p.m.

Ice Plant

This distillery has a hip, industrial vibe with a selection of their gin and vodka that adults of age enjoy after a day of vacationing.
