If you're looking to get outside of the college crowd's typical haunts, Creekside Grill & Bar is located on Jackson Road, just far enough to keep out the walking crowd. Some have called this one an upscale Applebee's, and we'd say that's pretty accurate. Nice atmosphere that's less loud than the on campus bars, and great service too.
They have great Happy Hour specials here that will definitely help you not to break the bank, and the combo of restaurant and bar makes it a really great date spot when you're trying to impress that special someone. Did we mention how great the food is? Definitely a win!
