Fresh ingredients
& our signature
mesquite-grilled flavor

Artboard 1

Years before our doors opened in July of 1996, Tim McCune and his original business partner, Pete Truxaw, dreamed of creating a neighborhood restaurant tailored to their community. They envisioned an upscale yet casual American-themed grille, where friends and family would come to relax and savor a unique dining experience. It was from that dream that Salt Creek Grille was born.

Our culinary approach follows the time-honored tradition of grilling meats over hot, mesquite embers. With a dedication to sourcing responsibly, our food is crafted with the freshest meats, poultry, fish, and produce available. Our menu may be paired with unique wines from boutique vineyards and well-known cellars, catering to both the connoisseur and casual taster.

We invite you to experience the Salt Creek Grille way.
