'This was our third visit, and we have been happy EVERY time. Agatha, and Jamie, are such great servers, the owners should be very proud of them! Such a nice ambience inside the restaurant, very relaxing! The steaks are something to just die for. I don't know who supplies the beef, but their steaks are better than anything you will find up in the "carnival" area of w. Parkway. We also tried the blackberry moonshine cocktail, and the spouse and I loved it! Also, they have a nice "dining table," so if you have a special family gathering, you can have a nice large table that is semi formal. Crystelle Creek is our Crystelle clear choice"

"Wish we had a place to eat back home like this. When you pull into the parking of this cozy, rustic restaurant, you are welcomed by a huge pine ‘dripping’ with lit icicles, and a rain effect coming off of the tin roof into a pond. Enter, and you are welcomed as if into a friends home. We sat on the bar side where there is dinner music, overlooking the creek that runs around back. We were not disappointed when our steaks came. 16 oz., Prepared perfectly, with green beans (the way my grandma used to make them) And a baked potato. Believe me, we looked at many steak places in the area and for the price, we hit a home run.
Oh! And the garlic rolls to die for! While dining, the owner came around and gave each lady a long stem red rose! We were encouraged to sit and enjoy the music, not rushed out. We requested many songs and sang along, chatting with others around us. The owners and staff could not be more welcoming. Glad we found the Crystelle!"

"Saw a recommendation for here on Facebook and decided to try it. We live in the area and had never heard about it. So glad we went! The food was great! We got the chicken parm and chicken fried chicken. Both were delicious along with the garlic bread they give you. The views are incredible and the water off the roof is gorgeous. We will definitely be coming back!"

"Restaurant was wonderful. The food was outstanding, live music and great atmosphere. The owner came around to each table and handed each lady a rose and thanked them for coming. I was very impressed and will definitely go back."

"If you want to enjoy a great meal where the locals eat, this is a great place to discover. It is not a chain restaurant, and the food is very good with many different options for an enjoyable meal. There is also live music by local performers. All round a very enjoyable experience."

"We were blown away by our experience at Crystelle Creek. We had a small wedding with only our immediate family in attendance at the beginning of July. We just wanted a nice dinner afterwards to celebrate with our guests. We emailed Crystelle Creek and Brook was quick to respond. Via email, we arranged a separate area/table for our guests, and she offered to make our wedding cake at an extremely reasonable price. We requested a burlap table runner and a "naked" wedding cake. I sent photos of the cake I had in mind, and Brook agreed to make the cake. We were running early after the ceremony, and the restaurant graciously agreed to seat us early. Our server (sadly, I don't have her name) was attentive, friendly and provided excellent service. The food was delicious, well priced and generously portioned. All our guests were pleased. The table was beside a large picture window overlooking the creek, very picturesque. The table was set with a beautiful flower centerpiece and rustic burlap runner just as requested (with no additional charge). The most stunning part of the experience was the beautiful wedding cake that was even better than the pictures I had sent. It was delicious (had several comments it was the best cake they ever had), and it was a fraction of the price a bakery would charge. I can not thank Brook and her team more for the PERFECT experience they provided for my husband and I and our families. A rating of "excellent" does not do this wonderful restaurant justice!!"

"Ok. Where to start with the 5 stars....
-the piano lady....Neesee....oh my, how many requests does she know. So awesome... So personable... Our table was right up front.... If you like music.. . That's where you need to sit.
- here we sit, and a guy comes to my table and leaves a long stem rose for my wife....
- I had the blackened trout.... Very tasty with a serious kick on the Cajun spices.
- my wife had the chicken parm.... Like Bernie say... It was HUGE...
Everything we had was awesome, experience was awesome, service was awesome, will be back."

"We went for a family dinner, all adults. Our waitress, Cathy, was wonderful. 2 of us had the trout piccata, 2 had the filet Oscar, and 1 had the lasagna. It was all very good. This was the best meal we had in our trip to Gatlinburg."

"Recent stay in gatlinburg, ate 2 nights here. great food-the trout is terrific. Prime rib was perfect. even had Brook-one of the owners, take care of us on night 2. Food, service, and music made for super night out"

"This was our second visit, we were there 9 years ago and it is still great. Great setting and friendly staff. Their specialty is trout cooked several ways. I enjoyed the blackend and my wife had the highly recommended trout piccata. Both had nice big fillets and were delicious. Do not pass on the made from scratch cakes, we enjoyed the chocolate wild berry. My wife was ready to take the whole cake home. We will go back again."

"Went for dinner on our last night in Gatlinburg. It was a lot of food great service and the setting was unique as you sat over a real flowing creek behind the building. Prices looked high at first but you get a generous portion for what you order. The complimentary biscuits were the best! Atmosphere was inviting and as you turned corners always something else to see. Came back later that night to meet up with a friend of 10 no see and had a great bar side experience. Most definitely recommend."
