We enjoyed our price fixed dinner and were thankful of the pace our courses were served. It made for a lovely anniversary evening.

We have been here for my wife's birthday twice now and each time, we enjoyed the experience. Their chipotle sirloin was to die for along with their garlic mashed potatoes. It was part of the pre-fixed meal. Pumpkin spiced creme brulé was a perfect way to finish off the meal. The kids' meal was a treat for our kids and the fries were perfectly baked.

The food was ok. It wasn't bad really, but I think I expected more. The steaks were fine, but they weren't out of this world. Service was good. My expectations might have been too high and I was looking forward to having lamb chops - I thought Canyon Creek was a chop house??? What happened? Also, I'm not sure why Open Table asks if it's a special occasion. It was our anniversary and I checked the box, but it didn't make any difference to our meal. The same thing happened at a prior reservation when it we were at a restaurant to celebrate a birthday.

Canyon Creek - Scarborough has never disappointed us! It’s a solid choice for a couple, small or large group, as it is a large restaurant. The food is always very good or excellent. It can be slow, but probably due to not enough wait staff. However, the staff are extremely kind and aim to be the best. The decor is good. Overall, restaurant is really well maintained and run well. You can’t go wrong here.

We were there to celebrate a birthday. We were given a nice booth, but the lighting was so poor, we had to use our phones to read the menu. The server that we had asked if we wanted more bread and we said yes. Our meals arrived before the bread. We asked for 2 glasses of red wine to go with our meals - we got them at the end of our meal - so we sent them back. She asked if anyone wanted a desert menu and everyone said no. But she did not bring the desert for the guest celebrating their birthday - nor did she ask if she wanted it. She said just assumed because we did not want to see the desert menu that we didn't want deserts. Really. Then we asked for the bill to be split between 2 people. We got 2 bills that were randomly split (one was for 2/3 of the bill, the other was the other 1/3). Not a 50/50 split. We then asked for one bill (to make it easier) and we got two bills that were a 50/50 split and not the one bill we asked for. What can I say, the food was okay, but you need to raise your service level. At approx. $50 per person, for food alone, I would expect better service! Won't be coming back anytime soon!

We went here for our wedding anniversary and brought our kids. For the price, I expected more. Both my steak and my husband’s steaks were overdone (I asked for medium-rare and got medium to medium-well, my husband asked for medium and got medium-well) - for $30 a dish in a restaurant serving steak all the time I expect the steak to be cooked to the doneness requested. The kids’ meal is not worth the price - the dessert was a cookie that looked liked it was from President’s Choice. The server didn’t come by to ask about our food until more than 10 minutes after it was served. We had to ask for more bread 3 times. Next time I want steak I’ll just go to Baton Rouge or the Keg, both of which are close by.

While we appreciated we could use the $20 discount on the Prix meals, we were disappointed that the carrot ginger soup arrived lukewarm and our entrees came before we had finished the soup and crab cakes! In all fairness we were asked if we wanted the entrees taken back to be kept warm but we declined the offer but in hindsight should have done so. We enjoyed the roast beef and shrimp ravioli; and the crime brûlée sans the chocolate pieces and caramel with the latter being very hard and chewy. There was hardly any taste of crab in the crab cakes; and texture was much too soft. Our server was attentive and welcoming (not same server who brought the entrees too early). Would we come back? Only for the roast beef!

The food was great, we especially enjoyed the crab cakes and lobster guacamole. They have a seasonal s’mores creme brûlée which was the best I’ve ever had...they need to keep it on the permanent menu.

You would think that when a restaurant is having a slow evening, the server would be more attentive. This was not the case at Canyon Creek - Scarborough. There were only two other tables occupied last night and our server was M.I.A. for most of the evening. After quickly dropping off our salads, she disappeared for 25 minutes. She did not offer freshly ground pepper, one guest wanted salt, we all wanted our drinks refilled, more wine, bread, however we were left without.

Canyon Creek is one of my favorite chain restaurants for the food and service has always been top notch. Typically, the staff is more professional and attentive, refilling your empty water glasses without needing to ask first, seeing empty wine glasses and asking if we’d like to order more, etc. I just hope this experience is an anomaly and not the norm for the Scarborough location. I used to frequent the Front St location, however it has unfortunately closed down.

A bit tight to sit 6 persons to a bench seat, prefer a round table but not available at that time.
The prime rib and the steak were okay, but the pasta is really small to be an entrée... my daughter still hungry, so she ate the bread.
Not sure if the server knows the dinner is for my dad's birthday which I have specified in the reservation, but didn't offer any complimentary cake or dessert.
Overall it's good and acceptable, but not exceptionally good.

Generally we have found Canyon Creek to be a good restaurant. We were disappointed, however, in that the prime rib roast we had was tough and not particularly flavorful. The soup and salad were good and the dessert was excellent.

Really enjoyed our evening. The food and drinks were delicious and we did not wait long to be served (many servers). Prices reasonable for a dinner out. My husband and I were able to converse as the background music was not overwhelming and loud. Surprised by free dessert for our anniversary celebration! Will come again for the food and the lower noise level.

Prixfix menu was on offer when we were in. Great deal as both of the items that we were interested in having were available. Asked to be seated in a quieter area and due to a couple large parties we were seated in the bar area. Quieter yes, as comfortable no. The staff respected our wishes not to be rushed through our appetizers and main courses. Food came out at a respectful pace. Apps and entrees were consumed before being approached to clear the table. Excellent service

We have been coming here for our get together for many years now and every time our experience has been phenomenal. Jim, our server has been very tentative, he came by and checked on us the right amount of time. Great experience overall.
