Community Involvement Recognition / Awards

We have been serving our guests in Northeast Ohio for over 28 years, using fresh locally sourced ingredients to create our modern twist on classic menu favorites. Located in downtown Brecksville, Creekside Restaurant provides an inviting experience, offering casual cuisine nestled in the treetops overlooking picturesque Chippewa Creek.

Our main dining room provides comfortable seating. The booths along the windows offer an "upfront" view of Chippewa Creek.  Interior tables can be set up for large parties and also offer a panoramic view of the scenic surroundings.  Several round tables are available for groups of 6 or more.  Handicap accessible - no steps or ramps.

We're happy to provide separate checks for any size group. Provide advance notice of this request and please allow a few extra minutes for our servers to collect payment on separate checks.
